All Day Play & Overnight Stay

Overnight Dog Boarding

The Local Bark was designed from the ground up to provide the best possible care, safety, and comfort for our dog guests. Dogs staying overnight at The Local Bark can enjoy our custom designed guest rooms in our climate controlled sleep area. A full day of play is always included for dogs staying overnight at The Local Bark. Your dog will love having hours of playtime during the day and a restful and secure night's sleep.

  • Wouldn’t take our ‘baby’ anywhere else! She has soooo much fun and is exhausted for 2 days after when she gets home, which I like to see. She is a golden and has tons of energy, so I know she is having a great time when staying at The Local Bark!

The attention to clients (human and canine) is personal and compassionate. The staff is friendly. The prices are very fair. I cannot say enough about how much we love the Local Bark!

    – Erica T., Sacramento, CA
  • Thanks for taking such care of our furry kid, George the German Shepherd. I can't recommend your business enough. The facility is immaculate and I know my pup is in great hands.Even with his (high-maintenance) natural dietary needs. George came home exhausted and happy

  • The Local Bark is always friendly and accommodating. I love how they post pictures of your pets on Facebook so you can see them while you are away. I have recommended the Local Bark to several family members and friends and everyone only has positive things to say and will no longer go anywhere but the Local Bark

  • We have regularly boarded him for as long as two weeks at a time, as well as short 2 day stays. We are impressed with the attention the staff gives the animals, the cleanliness of the facilities, and more importantly, his excitement when we pull onto the street and he senses we are going to stay and play.
    – Karen R., Citrus Heights, CA
  • We have used several play, exercise, train, boarding services in the greater Sacramento area and I have to say without a doubt in my mind that the Local Bark has it's business well taken care of and that the place is the best in town. It is clean, professional and puts the customer's first.

  • This facility is the best. It is a state of the art facility. They have individual kennels, places for Beatrice to play outside with other dogs and the owners and staff are amazing. We have had the best experience at The Local Bark and have recommended them to many of our friends for training and boarding. The real proof is when we arrive at The Local Bark to drop Beatrice off she is always excited and wagging her tail.
    – Lisa S., Folsom, CA
  • I don't know how else to say how much I love The Local Bark, except that now 6 of my friends take their dogs there. Every person I know that owns a dog, takes their dog to The Local Bark.
