Just as you desire first-rate accommodations and services when you go on vacation, the Barking Lot is the best way for your dog to enjoy his or her time away from home. With state-of-the-art facilities and individual spacious kennels, your dog will want to spend all of his vacation time with us. We're aware that all dogs need their own space, but we are able to board dogs from the same family in the same space, if you so desire  (there's nothing like having a pal close by when you're in an unfamiliar place). Plus, because your dog has a particular diet, we won't interrupt the flow – we ask you to supply us with enough food, any kind you want, to nourish your pal for the duration of his stay. Just like people, dogs may have special needs – and we're able to meet most requests that our clients have. Even if your pet needs his food heated in the microwave or given medication, we'll take care of that. Your dogs get three individual walks during their stay with us and have four to five hours of supervised playtime in a controlled social environment with dogs of similar age and temperament. We'll always ensure your dog's safety and happiness – and you can check in whenever you want on our exclusive webcam!

Before your dog can check in to the Barking Lot, we'll need proof of rabies, DHPPC and Bordetella or Titer results. Cost for boarding is $43 per night and you can check in anytime during our regular hours of operation. We do ask that you check-out by 12:00 pm to avoid being charged an extra half day.
