Common Questions

What are the benefits of Doggy Daycare?

Doggy Daycare is beneficial in many ways including but not limited to:

  • alleviating destructive behaviour, boredom, and/or loneliness
  • exercise and mental stimulation
  • safe/supervised socialization and playtime with dogs and people
  • peace of mind knowing your dog is having a great day!

Should my dog be vaccinated?

All dogs entering Barktown Inc. must be up to date on the DHPP and Rabies vaccines.

Does my dog have to be spayed/neutered?

We require all dogs to be spayed/neutered by 12 months of age. If your dog shows signs of sexually maturity before that time we will require they get fixed before returning for daycare.

Why does my dog have to be dropped off by 11am?

Our schedule allows us to maintain similar energy levels within the pack. We play in the morning, have nap time in the afternoon and then play some more! If another dog gets dropped off during the afternoon, it would interfere with our down time(yes they do actually all sleep together!). It wouldn’t be fair or safe introducing a dog who is ready to play into a group of very tired pups!

Do you accept bully breeds?

YES! Our very own dog Moose, is part bully breed.As long as your dog is friendly with both humans and animals, they have a place with us! We love our pit bulls, staffys, mastiffs, bull dogs and more!
