Dogs are social pack animals. There are instinctual lessons dogs can only learn from other dogs.
At Bark & Purr, we play breed specific games daily to fulfill your dog’s instinctual needs so they come home happy, balanced and tired.
In addition, we walk them outside three times a day to ensure that they get a chance to breathe fresh air and stretch their legs.
Dogs are supervised together in groups based on size, temperament, special needs, energy level, etc. to ensure a safe and fun experience for every dog.
All dogs should come to daycare a least once a week to stay physically fit and socially balanced.

WHY SHOULD MY DOG ATTEND DOGGIE DAYCARE?
Do you ever feel just a little guilty about your dog being left home alone so often?
Let's face it, we are probably all a bit busier than we'd like to be. Between work, endless errands, kids, cleaning, you name it, you hardly have a spare moment for yourself.
By the time you get everything done, you're completely worn out. You simply don't have the time, or the energy to give your dog the exercise and attention he needs.
That's where doggy daycare comes in.
Whether it's just a few hours a week or every day, doggy daycare provides an exciting social environment for your dog to romp, learn and play. It also gives your dog that special something to look forward to all week long - a special day, just for him!
That's why doggy daycare is one of the hottest trends in America these days!
Plus after a long day at work, wouldn't it be nice if your dog was just as tired as you are?
Our daycare dog owners notice an improvement in social skills, obedience, overall physical condition and attitude with just one week of attending daycare.
The physical activity your dog gets at Bark & Purr will keep them happy and satisfied, and provide crucial mental stimulation that many breeds require.
That means no more furniture chewing or bouncing off the walls at home!
Plus we'll wipe them down with cleaning wipes, so they come home fresh and clean!
