We take pride in building a loving relationship with each furry family member with experienced guidance and boundaries. Offering a balanced, structured approach to exercise and fun by compassionate and calm leaders, we consider your pets to be our extended family and care deeply for both their physical and emotional wellbeing.
We happily provide personalized service in all aspects of pet care as we are aware that your pups and kitties are individuals and have different needs.
If your pet is fearful or unsure, we will take a gentle patient approach to confidence and trust building.
If your dog pulls on leash or is over excited when passing others, we will work on boundaries and manners on our group hikes or individual walks.
Sharing your furry family members is a privilege for us and we take this responsibility very seriously. Professionally supervised fun adventures makes for a happy, balanced pet.

Pee Breaks & Drop-Ins
We can check in on your kitty or take your pooch out for a customized walk.
Litter maintenance, feeding, playtime and cuddles included of course!
All hikes take place in a natural setting such as the forest or beach. Dogs exit the van orderly and are leashed for the first 50 meters from the road or parking lot and all new pack members stay on leash while building their relationship with the pack.
Our focus on safe play and activity insures that your pup is socialized, exercised and always towel dried before being brought home. Dogs are never left unattended in the Bark van for any longer than it takes to pick up or drop off a fellow pack member.
We offer a complimentary meet and greet and introductory walk as well as a discount for second pet in one household.
