Logistics

Bark Social Day Camp is currently only open to Bark Social members. All of our normal rules apply – they have to be at least 4 months old, be spayed or neutered if they are over a year old, and have up to date vaccinations on rabies and distemper.

Drop off begins at 7am. You can drop your dog off at any time after that! Please pick your dog up by 7pm. We will have a 15 minute grace period, but after that, there will be a $25 late charge. 

Your second or third owners listed on your account are allowed to pick up and drop off your dog. We will ID at the door for the safety of your dog, so please make sure to update your profile accordingly.

Yes! Every morning you drop your dog off, please bring their food in a clear plastic bag or container clearly labeled with your dog’s name. Remember - we only feed your dog ONCE during camp around 11:30 am, so please portion accordingly. To ensure your dog doesn’t have any tummy issues, we will not be feeding any food to your dog that isn’t brought by you. No treats either, so no need to worry about allergies. 

Pricing & Booking

Each of our packs are good for a month from the date of purchase. 5 packs = 15% off, 10 packs = 20% off, and unlimited packs are 25% off. Prices vary by location. 

If you purchase packs, there are no additional discounts for multiple dogs. If you book one day at a time, there is a $10 discount for the second dog.  

We are capping our daily campers at 15 dogs per day to start. You will book through your member portal. Our system is first come first serve. If the date is grayed out, that means we are full for that day.

Camp Operations

We have different size crates for different size dogs in the clubhouse! Your dog will take their nap in their individual crates in the clubhouse for two hours. We do not use any bedding for sanitary and safety reasons. They will be supervised the entire time they are at camp, even during nap time.

At 11:30 AM, our team will put clean food and dog bowls in each of their crates and fill them with fresh water and the pre-portioned food you brought that morning. Then, we will take one dog at a time into the clubhouse and put them into their individual crates for lunch. This eliminates any chance of food aggression.

Much like normal Bark Social play, we have our retail area, our small dog area, and our clubhouse to separate the dogs if they need a break. With the addition of day camp, we will also have crates where we can have them stay in for 10-15 minutes to calm down if necessary. Crates will always be in air conditioned spaces, so they will be comfortable.

Absolutely! We are staffing up to accommodate the campers -- so get ready for your dog to make their new human besties.

We will follow our normal Bark Social incident protocol – if there is an incident between two dogs, we will write up an incident report and review it with you when you pick them up. We will separate the dogs and put dogs in crates as needed, depending on the severity of the incident. 

Each camper will have a special tag on their collars, and you will walk away with the same tag when you drop them off. To pick them up, you will need to give back your copy of the tag, and we will take the special tag off your dog’s collar. Dogs with purple tags cannot leave the parks.
