Daycare

While at work, you can relax knowing your pet is enjoying the day with us at The Barking Birch Pet Lodge. Daycare for your pet often prevents destructive behavior caused by boredom or separation anxiety. Those participating in daycare enjoy socializing with other dogs in a small, safe, controlled group. Each pet receives plenty of attention, loving care and an occassional treat. Playgroups are monitored and each dog is evaluated and placed in his/her appropriate group. For safety, elderly pets enjoy one-on-one time with staff.
