Bark Avenue Daycamp


At Bark Avenue Daycamp, we make dogs feel right at home! We don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach to dog care.

What Our Customers Are Saying

We want to be your dog’s home away from home and our staff to become part of their extended family.  Rest assured…we love every pup that walks in our doors and we want to see them come back again and again with tails-a-waggin!

I don’t know who loves Bark Ave day camp more, my puppy or me because he comes home tired and doesn’t eat my shoes anymore! Seriously though, my shelter pup went through a lot in his young life and he has a lot of fear but not when I take him to Bark Avenue.  He races inside and is super excited when he is dropped off so I can tell they treat the dogs well.  The place is always immaculate too which I love.

Also, the owner and her daughter are great people and you can tell they love the animals and what they do and it shows in a happy environment!

Best experience ever!  Kelly is an amazing trainer. She has helped my Rottweiler so much. Rocky absolutely loves her and enjoys Bark Avenue. I can tell how comfortable and happy he is every time that we go. I would highly recommend Bark Avenue.

I was given a look around before I left my chocolate lab for a over night stay. Everything was very clean.  Outside they had 3 baby pools. That was a big hit for my baby.  They let my boy stay in a large area with his dog bed overnight.  I felt good about leaving him.  I know that he had the time of his life with his new friends because I  had to Pull him out when it was time to go home.  I highly recommend this place.

We love Bark Ave! Our 1 yr old french bulldog, Bellame,  has utilized nearly all the services – day camp, weekend play dates, grooming, dog portraits and most recently dog school. She just completed the Basic Obedience with Kelly. What a great experience! Kelly is extremely knowledgeable, warm, welcoming & engaged in your dog’s progress. We had a great time & saw a lot of improvement (both in Bellame & in our techniques!). Highly recommend the classes & Bark Ave in general!

Bark Avenue DayCamp is a Dog’s Paradise!!! Our dog CJ started attending Bark Avenue at 4 months old! He is now 16 months old and attends at least 2 times per week. I truly believe that he learned “manners” from the “pack” he played with. He came home happy and tired but more importantly, he was even more trainable.

The staff is INCREDIBLE! They LOVE each and every dog and share the day not only on facebook and other social media, but with you personally as to what and how your dog did for the day. I honestly can’t say enough about the wonderful, knowledgeable staff!! Trainer Kelly always answers questions and gives great advice! Grooming is available as well. We often have CJ’s nail’s trimmed while he is at DayCamp. We have boarded our dog there as well and they listen and make accommodations for special needs! We can go on vacation with the peace that our dog is safe and happy. Sent messages to check on CJ while we were away and received quick responses. Cannot say enough about this wonderful Dog Haven!!!

Bark Avenue is amazing! The staff is so friendly and they all absolutely love what they do. I bring my 2 year old pit mix rescue here a couple times a week while I’m at work so he can get some exercise and socialization skills.  He was a little rough around the edges the first month,  but the staff assures me that he is making great strides and is a fantastic listener.  I have also boarded him here twice for a couple nights each. Before they “accepted” him,  however,  they did a quick assessment and gave me a tour of the facilities to make sure all parties would be satisfied,  and I can wholeheartedly say that we are! They have some of the best rates for doggie day care in the area,  and they not only accept, but love working with bully breeds.  Bark Ave are lifesavers!

Seeing my dog run towards the door to go into doggie day care is one of the best feelings. I use to take her to a different day care and she would be pulling the opposite direction when we got there. What a HUGE difference it is at Bark Avenue. The staff there is always so willing to update me on Maya’s day. THANK YOU for making me feel so safe and happy about leaving my baby there. I know she is in the best hands and she loves you guys! P.S. The daily pictures/videos are what I look forward to every time she is there!

Everyone is so friendly and you can tell how they care for all the pups. Rocky was so happy to have his training there and learned so much.

I have been taking my highly energetic 10 month old rescue dog, Jensen, here for day camp for about the last month.  I am very particular with my animals and I never worry when I leave him here with these professionals.  From the moment you walk in the door your are greeted by Casey who just exudes friendliness with her smile and voice.  The staff is top notch and the facility is extremely clean and clean smelling.  My dog is so happy to get into the door and extremely tired after he gets home from a day of playing.  I am so happy to have a place like this close to home.  Give them a try!  Your dog will love you for it!!!!

LOVE this place! We have a beautiful 6yr old female Australian cattle dog. This breed as Tim the co-owner refers to as “evil geniuses” are high energy working dogs& a tired cattle dog is a happy cattle dog. My fiancé& I both work long hours and we’re grateful to have this facility 5 min from our home. Riley practically does backflips in the backseat of my car as soon as I pull up to the building! The staff ( especially Marcus& Dave) love dogs & it shows, they will do a personality assessment& require up to date vaccinations before daycare/ boarding. We’ve boarded Riley here from as little as a weekend to ten days& the results are always the same… bright eyes, wiggly butt& happy face, even a little healthy weight loss from all the exercise! Yes dogs can sometimes play rough but the few rare times she’s had a cut or scratch the staff informed me immediately& applied an antibiotic ointment before I picked her up. They do offer grooming& will have your pup manicured& smelling daisy fresh when u pick them up from boarding.
