Dog Boarding

Canal Bark is a dog hotel not simply a kennel. Our suites are specially designed for comfort and safety in an attractive upscale atmosphere. Our suites include high quality FRP privacy panels with stainless steel fixtures and gates. Each suite has a raised floor so dogs are not directly on the concrete. The suites also contain a swing down cot and raised stainless steel food and water dishes. Suites include bedding, but you are always welcome to bring bedding and toys from home to make your dog as comfortable as possible during their stay.

All suite stays include multiple outside trips for potty breaks during the day and outside play periods. Calming music is played in the suites. Dogs have a last trip outside before bedtime, then have a bedtime treat before lights out. We have staff on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The kennel and site are monitored by security cameras.

Cat Boarding

Canal Bark Boarding Condo for Cats We strive to make your cat’s stay as comfortable as possible. Cats are housed in a separate room in our spacious cat condos. All condos have a separate litter space and a hangout space with a ledge. We use S’Wheat Scoop litter as a biodegradable, low-dust alternative to traditional clay based cat litter.

Our large cat room is shared with our staff break room so that cats have as much human contact as possible. Each cat is given time to individually lounge in the large room with staff. The room includes a carpeted tower for fun (and for scratching), an assortment of toys and a perch for cats to look out the window. Cats also enjoy videos with birds and other wildlife specifically designed to entertain them.

Feeding
We recommend that you provide the food your cat eats at home for the best adjustment to our environment. We will store your food in the proper environment (refrigerated or frozen if needed). If food is not supplied, we will feed Nutri Source grain-free cat chow. Treats are given before bedtime.
