Dog Day Boarding


Day Boarding at Canal Bark

While day boarding is a convenient option for our busy pet parents, it is also important to your dog’s overall well-being. Dogs need physical exercise and mental stimulation for maximum overall health. Without it, they tend to get into trouble. Pups that are at home all day may become bored, lethargic and may even destroy furniture or belongings. This is where we at Canal Bark can help.


Day Boarding at Canal Bark

Our day boarding guests enjoy regular exercise breaks with loving staff members, plenty of human attention, and lots of time to relax in our premium canine accommodations. We also offer an Enhanced Day Boarding program, with structured games, playtime, and training exercises to keep your pet’s mind and body extra busy.

  • Day boarding guests enjoy playtime in our deluxe indoor/outdoor play yards
  • If your dog is social, we can group pets together for small group outings
  • Again, staff is extensively-trained and pets play under close supervision
  • Our large indoor spaces feature stimulating obstacles (like the ever-popular tunnels and bridges!)
  • The outdoor yards include a splash pool (weather permitting)
  • Between play sessions, dogs rest in comfortable accommodations with bedding and always-fresh water
  • We do not require meet and greets but we also don't do large playgroups at this time.

The Importance of Socialization

Proper socialization with other dogs and other humans is critical to having a happy, healthy, and well-adjusted pet. With many people spending more time away from home, your furry family member may now be home alone for long periods of the day for the first time in a while. The stress of solitude can cause anti-social habits such as destructive chewing, persistent digging, excessive barking, or other signs of separation anxiety. Pets may also show signs of stress such as drooling, attempts to escape, and pacing.   

If your pet is suffering from separation anxiety or simply the boredom of home isolation after many months of company, bring them to daycare with us! Day boarding provides your loved one with the pack environment dogs are accustomed to, creating a trusted second home for your pet while you are away. Bringing your pup to day boarding with us provides all the physical, mental, and social exercise your dog needs. Give us a call to learn more about the socialization benefits of day boarding.


Puppy Day Boarding

Puppies have special needs beyond that of an adult dog. Our Puppy Day Boarding places heavy emphasis on socialization, desensitization, and exposure to new things during your puppy’s critical learning. Call us to find out more!
