    Best staff! Best doggy daycare!

    My dogs have been going to Meg and her staff for over 10 years. They know as soon as we turn down their road where we are going and immediately start crying and going crazy! They never want to leave the park and always come home happy and tired. Love this place and so do my dogs!🐕

    Review Correction

    The Bark Park is both a dog park and dog day camp. We verify the vaccinations of all dogs in order to ensure we provide a safe play environment. It is routinely done at many dog parks in the area and is not unique to The Bark Park.

    As we are not affiliated with Bring Fido, we have no control over what they posted on their website. John did not need to give us a low rating or yell and use profanity at our employee because of something beyond our control. Bring Fido does post a large blue link to our website, which lists all of our pricing, services, and the vaccination proof that we require.

    This is not a dog park, it is dog day care. If you bring your dog to play, they will ask for vaccination papers. What dog park does that!? BringFido should not classify this place as a dog park.

    Best Place!

    This was the first place we visited when we moved into town. We've been to a few other places since then and have found that this is our favorite dog park/doggie day care in town. Reasonably priced, trust worthy workers, and our four-legged child comes home exhausted every time. Love these guys!

    Best dog park in the city!

    Great place!! Kramer has to be dragged out when it's time to leave he loves it so much! Great supervision and a great group of dogs! Tons of room for them to play and tire each other out! Very reasonable priced too! Wouldn't trust anyone else to babysit my baby
