Mission Bay’s Boutique Doggie Daycare

Client Login

Bark Avenue is a loving doggy day care in the Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco where dogs feel like they’re going to their favorite Aunties’ house.

Our thoughtful staff and well-planned day-long schedules create happy dogs for their happy clients
who can enjoy their furry friends with absolutely ZERO worry about them while they’re in our
care.

Our pup Ollie attended Bark for a little over a year and it was nothing short of an amazing experience. The warmth, care, and knowledge of everyone that worked there was incredible and we knew our pup was in the best hands, which as protective dog moms was key!

Leo, my mutt, is always excited to go to “school” everyday, always eager to go through the door as we approach the facility. Bark Avenue posts updates everyday on Insta, and you can see how happy all the dogs are. Highly recommended.

TJ A.

Absolutely recommend Bark Ave! Our dog Maddie has been going to Bark Ave for 7 years since she was a 7 month old puppy! She has grown up there and all the staff always show her so much love and care. She gets so excited at every drop off.

About Us

Bark Avenue Methods & Philosophy

In interactions with our dogs, Bark Avenue employees use only positive reinforcement dog training methods, based on canine behavioral science. We use natural dog motivators like toys, treats, praise, and attention to elicit the desired behavior. Dogs are never subjected to punishment, threats, yelling, or aversive techniques involving leashes or collars.
