Groom & Board


boarding Our boarding is limited to 6 dogs per night to ensure a happy, healthy and safe stay while in our care.

boarding A typical day of 24 hr boarding at Barks would entail 12 hours of interactive daycare, running, socializing with their pals from 6 am to 6 pm. Weeknights from 6pm to 7pm your dog will go into his/her kennel, to rest and eat dinner. At 7pm until 10pm all dogs will be back out to partake in our evening play sessions. During the overnight hours from 11pm to 6 am each dog will have the comfort of his/her own personal condo to dream about tomorrow’s fun.

boarding A typical Weekend will start with 7am to 10am play, running with the pack. From 10am-12pm breakfast and rest individually in their own condos. At 12pm until 4pm they will be out and enjoying the fun of another play session. From 4pm to 7pm each dog will be in their individual kennels for rest and dinner. At 7pm to 1030pm all dogs will once again be loose together to romp and play until bed. At 1030pm the dogs will be tucked in and kissed goodnight, each in their own cozy condo.
