What is dog day care?
Dog daycare works much like a daycare center for children. In the morning, you drop your pet off at the daycare center and then pick him or her up later in the day. During your dog's stay at daycare, he or she will be able to socialize with people and other dogs. Bark Avenue also offers other services such as boarding, drop off and pick-up services, a puppy program and spa services.
What are the benefits of taking my dog to dog daycare?
Dogs are social animals and benefit from being able to interact with other dogs. They'll learn to get along with others, get exercise, and just have fun! It also eases your mind knowing your dog is being entertained in a healthy way while you're taking care of whatever your schedule requires.
Are the dogs indoors or out most of the time?
The dogs will be indoors. Our guests are walked outside every 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Puppies and new guests are taken outside every hour for a bathroom break.
How secure are the play areas?
The play areas are fenced in and supervised by our dog-loving staff.
Do you have separate areas for different sized dogs?
Dogs are separated by size and temperament. Dogs do best when they are around other dogs similar in size and/or energy level.
Do you have toys for them to play with?
Bark Avenue has plenty of toys to keep your dog stimulated. Although they'll have other dogs to play with, toys and activities are also important.
Is the facility clean?
We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the facilities. "Accidents" are cleaned and disinfected as they occur and the floors and equipment are cleaned and disinfected everyday.
