What is a Meet and Greet Orientation?


All guests staying at Bark without their owners present for either overnight boarding or daycare/play-dates need to participate in a "Meet & Greet Orientation" (cost for this is $45 per pet and includes daycare for the remainder of the day). This gives the care team an opportunity to meet your babies and determine how best to accommodate their needs while in our care.








What do I need to know about Canine Cough and Cold (AKA Kennel Cough)?


The health of your pet is important to us. Keeping your pet safe, healthy and happy while he/she is in our care is our number one priority. To help ensure the well-being of your pet and guard against the spread of infectious diseases, such as canine cough and cold (aka kennel cough), we have a vaccination policy and adhere to a strict cleaning and
disinfecting protocol. However, even with this strict policy, and even though a dog has received the Bordetella vaccine, he/she may still contract this illness.

We Need Your Help by Considering the Following
- Sick pets should not be brought to any boarding, grooming or daycare facility, including Bark. - Keep in mind that this illness is spread by either airborne or direct contact situations; symptoms may not appear for a period of up to 10 days; and your dog may have been exposed prior to visiting our facility.
- Please consult your veterinarian for diagnosis and treatment options. - If your dog is diagnosed with canine cough after a stay at Bark, please notify us. Providing this information can help us protect the health of other dogs staying at our facility.
