The main advantage of boarding with The Dog Bark is that during the days, your pup gets to play with all of his furry (and not as furry) friends ALL DAY LONG! This situation provides our customers with a guilt-free trip while your dog is on a vacation of sorts as well
A typical boarding day begins with breakfast which you will be responsible for providing. We advise that you include 3 extra meals, just in case. From 7:00 am to around 6:30 pm, your dog will attend daycare and play with his or her furry friends all day long, with a few rests in the mix. Upon closing, your dog will be fed dinner, use the potty one last time, will get lots of hugs and kisses, and be left with any comfort items you wish to provide. This could be a piece of your clothing or any favorite tasty treats you wish to provide. Please do not bring any rawhide as this can be a choking hazard. Please feel free to bring anything that you believe will make your dog more comfortable in his or her “home away from home.” After a good night’s rest, your dog will be ready to do it all again the next day!
Due to shortened hours on Saturday and Sunday, after playing during the day from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, the dogs will retire to their abode and be let out for one more hour of play-time and potty breaks at 8:00 pm.
Requirements for Boarding: Any dog boarded at The Dog Bark must comply with all of the daycare requirements. If your dog has not yet attended daycare, he or she must pass the temperament test and attend a full day of daycare to ensure a positive experience while you are away.
