Bark Palace daycare kennel and spa is a place for dogs to have fun in a safe and caring environment. Your dog will be treated like royalty at our facility surrounded by trained dog lovers.

When your dog comes to BP he or she will be integrated into the supervised play group that best suits them. This is done carefully and at a pace within each dog’s comfort level. Groups are decided based on factors such as size and temperament. We will work with your dog, helping them learn how to 'play nice'. Every Dog must have on a Break away collar on, if you do not have one we will offer you a purchase of one. No other collars of any type can be worn at any time.

You can view your dog at any time during the day on our FREE WEB CAM SERVICE. You will be given a personal code to view them from any device offering internet service.

Each dog will have their own personal cubby where we will store their belongings, all special items for nap time and overnight stays will be placed in their private suites.

All of full day and overnight guest will have his or her own suites. The domestic dog is not meant to have 8-12 hour stretches of playtime without break, thus our mandatory naptime. 12:00-2pm every day.

We have a facility designed for 12,000 square feet of designated play space in a New England Climate. When the weather is too hot, raining or too cold we will take advantage of our fully air conditioned and heated indoor play areas. Of Course our goal is to be in the fresh air as much as possible so we have dog pools and dog sprinklers for our hot days and snowmen making, king of the snow mountain on our winter days. Play apparatuses will be in both our outside and inside areas. There will be a variety of play choices every day of the year, which your dog will find fun and very stimulating.

Our staff also believes that human interaction is important, thus our staff will be engaged in play time both in and outside at all times.

We are fully WIFI. There is a viewing area where you can enjoy watching your dog at play.

As a result of doggie Day care, you will have a much happier and healthier dog. Socializing with the dogs and staff, and challenging themselves on the specially designed doggie playgrounds at BP will give your dog an opportunity to get exercise, learn proper social skills and gain confidence, allowing them to direct their energy toward good behaviors.
