At Bark Avenue our goal is to make each owner feel 100% comfortable leaving their beloved pet in our hands while they are away.

About Boarding at Bark Avenue

By bringing your pet to Bark Avenue, your dog will be busy in our daycamp and tired come nightfall they will sleep soundly. We want to be your dog’s home away from home and our staff to become part of their extended family.

Bark Avenue wants each owner to be 100% comfortable leaving their beloved pet in our hands while they are away. With owner approval, dogs being boarded at Bark Avenue will be allowed to play in daycamp during operating hours and will only be in their individual kennels when they are eating or sleeping. Although our front desk is closed on major holidays, we are fully staffed for dog boarding 365 days a year. What this means for you is that even on a holiday like Christmas or Thanksgiving, your dog will not be kept in a kennel all day. For our boarding dogs, these holidays are no different than any other day – full of lots of playtime and fun.

Prior to boarding, owners will be encouraged to give us a detailed schedule for their dog so the staff at Bark Avenue can maintain a routine the dog is already accustomed to (i.e. eating twice a day). Also, make special note of any allergies your dog may have. Does your dog take daily medication or shots? That’s no problem for us and there is never an additional fee for these services. We want to take care of your dog as you would. We also welcome the owners to call Bark Avenue staff for updates on their pet.

While we provide each dog with a blanket to keep them warm and comfy while boarding, owners are welcome to bring toys (the non-squeaking kind please), treats, or bedding from home to be placed in their kennel with them. While we inventory everything you bring, it is always helpful to label as much as possible with your last name.
