Daycare Requirements

To attend daycare at Bark Avenue, your dog must meet the following requirements:

  • Pass our temperament screening.
    • During the screening, we discuss your dog’s needs and any questions you may have for us. At that time, we allow you to see our facility and we get a chance to interact with your dog and see how he or she does with other dogs in the group.
  • Be well-socialized:
    • Not protective of toys/space or aggressive.
  • At least 3 months old, have a basic training foundation and potty training.
  • Current on vaccines (provide copies of all vaccination records prior to the start date)
    • DHLPP (or similar)
    • Bordetella (kennel cough)
    • Rabies
  • On an approved form of topical flea control.
    • Topical (Frontline, Advantage, Revolution)
    • Pill (Comfortis, Trifexis)
    • Other: please check with us
  • Neutered or spayed by 6 months of age
  • Wearing a leather or nylon quick-release collar or harness
  • Completed or currently enrolled in basic training/obedience

If you would like to visit our facility, please contact us to make an appointment. Our first responsibility is taking care of the physical and emotional well-being of the dogs so we will work with you to coordinate a time that allows you to see the dogs in action while limiting stress to the dogs in the playrooms.
