Group Play With Other Social Dogs
The Local Bark was designed to give dogs the ultimate playtime experience. Your dog can play with all of their friends in our huge outdoor play space. When the weather does not permit playing outside your dog can enjoy playing in our climate control indoor play area. The Local Bark also has areas exclusively for smaller dogs as well as those who prefer calmer play. Playtime is always supervised by our staff to ensure each and every dog has a happy, safe, and enjoyable experience.
Does your dog love water? Is he constantly diving into your pool? Wading in the river? Or splashing around in water buckets? In the summer months let your pup cool off from the California heat with a 45 minute Pooch Plunge in our Splash Zone. Your dog and 5-10 other pups will love splashing around in our 3-foot deep, beach-entry, in ground pool. All Pooch Plunge sessions are supervised by a CPR trained staff member for maximum fun and safety. Prefer for your dog to enjoy a relaxing swim session by himself? He or she will love our Skinny Dip option, a 30 minute swim session where your dog will play one-on-one with one of our CPR trained staff members. Call us today to add a Pooch Plunge or Skinny Dip to your dogs next daycare or boarding stay.
Overnight stays at The Local Bark always include dog daycare, however, many dogs love to visit and enjoy dog daycare just for the day. Dogs in daycare can romp around in our huge outdoor play space, or come in to our climate controlled indoor play areas when weather permits.
