Mike Kelly had a sore back, not to mention torn-down shower curtains, a decimated bathroom, and clogged drains, all courtesy of his 160-pound newfoundland, Gordo. He decided to start a self-service dog-wash business, not simply for his own sake but for other sore, slobber-riddled dog owners as well.
And so In n Out Self Serve Dog Wash was born. There, pet owners find a series of green-walled semiprivate stations that house walkup tubs for a variety of dog sizes, including a couple of extra-large sizes to accommodate massive pups or several small dogs that became stuck together after an ill-fated jelly-sandwich incident. Equipped with washing hoses and shampoos, dog owners can disrupt muddy paws and fur before rinsing and styling their pooch's pompadour with a high-velocity, no-heat blow dryer. Or they can seek out the help of the shop's professional grooming services, which include nail trimming, ear cleaning, and packages with breed-standard trims.
We are a full service doggy daycare and boarding facility. We also offer grooming and training. We were awarded, by Reader's Choice Awards, best doggy daycare and boarding facility in all of NJ in 2008 and 2010 and best grooming facility in NJ in 2009 and 2010.

Occupying a 21-acre plot in the middle of Mercer County farmland, MayBelle Stables invites aspiring horseback riders to learn the sport in a serene, outdoor setting. Anchoring the land is the original, 1700s-era barn, which reminds riders of the farm's long history as they learn to ride in the Western Style. Hour-long lessons cover the style's basic techniques and customs while students are in the saddle, and also touch on such out-of-the-saddle skills as grooming, tacking, and counting horses until they fall asleep. Once riders become proficient in these skills, they can direct their steed onto the 1,600 acres of Mercer Meadows parkland, a neighboring ecological preserve with plenty of horseback riding trails.
