Dog Daycare!

At the Bark Building!

The Bark Building is much more than just a place to leave your dog for the day.  Your dog will be treated to days packed with fun interaction with our staff, plenty of exercise, and healthy socializing with other dogs.  You will feel no guilt when you drop off your pup to hang out with us all day.


It's like going to camp.  Or going on an all-inclusive resort vacation, except for dogs.


The Bark Building features large indoor, climate-controlled playrooms and outdoor fenced areas that are under constant supervision.  Making your dog comfortable, happy and healthy are our top priorities.  Making your dog thrilled to return to the Bark Building day after day is our goal.


Oh, and don’t be surprised when your pal is dog-tired after hanging out with us.  Just sayin’.


Does your dog need some grooming done while staying at the Bark Building?  No problem.  Just so happens that we know a few groomers.  We've got full grooming facilities, and there's nothing we like better than producing piles of pampered pups!


If you have any questions, please give us a call!
