Barkside’s Day Camp is the Place to Be!

Small dog day camp 8am – 6pm Monday thru Friday
Large dog day camp has 2 sessions 10am – 12pm and 1pm – 3pm Monday thru Friday

It’s time to bring your dog to Barkside Lodge for a day of running, jumping, and playing with friends! We have indoor and outdoor play areas, special rubber matting on the floor to protect knees and joints, playground equipment designed especially for dogs, lots of toys to play with, and experienced staff who love to keep the dogs entertained. When the weather permits, we have shallow doggie pools for the dogs to cool off and splash in.  Our day camp allows dogs to burn off energy in a fun and safe environment. You can focus on work or vacation, while your dog meets and greets new and old friends and enjoys simply being a dog. Some features that make our day camp right for your dog are:

LOTS OF PLAY TIME. Our small dog camp is up front near the reception area where the dogs are out with the staff the entire day! For large dog camp we provide up to 4 hours of playtime each day, with a noon-time break that gives them time to reenergize for the afternoon play session and reduces crankiness that often comes with overstimulation.

PROPER PARTICIPANT SCREENING. All dogs must pass a temperament screening before being admitted into our program. Participants must also be current on all vaccinations. To ensure that all dogs have a fun and safe experience, we reserve the right to deny participation in our program to any dog we do not feel is appropriate for group play.
