Group Play With Other Social Dogs

Dog Daycare in the Sacramento Area

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.

  • 10,000 square feet of outdoor play space
  • 1,500 square feet of climate-controlled
    indoor play space
  • 3 foot deep beach front entry pool
  • Exclusive play area for small dogs

Splash Zone

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.

    – Lynne C., Orangevale, CA
  • She was so happy and excited to be going to play that she didn't even look back at us before heading out the door! I like that the dogs are lose together during the day with constant supervision. It's a great way for our pup to interact with other dogs while being supervised by a staff knowledgeable in canine behavior.
    – Patricia C., Auburn, 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.
    – Mitzie M., Elk Grove, CA
  • Our puppy, Porter, LOVES playcare. Whenever I park the car out front, its like he knows where we're at, he gets so excited and impatient and wants out of the car immediately. As soon as we get inside he runs straight for the door he knows takes him to all of his friends. He's just so happy!
    – Coleen W., Sacramento, 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.
    – Patrick H., Sacramento, CA
  • This place is AWESOME! Such a cool facility with huge outdoor yards for the dogs to play in, but also indoor areas if they want to play out of the heat (or cold)! Most importantly, I know my dog loves this place. Thanks for taking such great care of my dog Local Bark! Love you guys!
    – R.L., Folsom, CA
  • The best doggie daycare and overnight place in Sacramento.
    – Lynne C., Orangevale, CA
  • My dog Tucker gets so excited each time he arrives so I know he absolutely loves this place. The staff always greets him warmly and it's a great environment to socialize dogs. Excellent facility and super friendly staff!
    – Sheree H., Mather, CA
  • These people here are great. Toured 3 places and decided to leave my dog at Local Bark. Well worth the drive out there from downtown Sac. Thanks guys for taking care of my dog so lovingly.
    – Theresa D., Sacramento, CA
  • First time ever taking our dog Meeko yesterday to the local bark and we are MORE than thrilled: we were unsure of how he would do with the other dogs - but it is obvious the time and care the staff take to ensure all dogs are safe and happy.
    – Aubrey K., Citrus Heights, CA
  • This is the greatest place for dogs and my wife and I are very grateful. We drop of Rosco to play a day or two each and he comes home tuckered out for the night!
    – Jarred A., Rancho Cordova, CA
  • Best place around and affordable!!! I love bringing my dogs here and when they get home they are exhausted for 2 days!!! They play from the time I drop them off (6:30am) to the time I come get them (4:45 pm). Local Bark is also VERY clean and not a speck of stray hair anywhere. I'm a very picky dog owner and Local Bark exceeds my expectations!
