Let’s Play All Day!

Enroll your dog at Barker University to give them a stimulating day filled with enriching exercises, a structured schedule and a safe comfortable environment where they can socialize and play all day. Your dog will never be bored as they spend the day exploring each of our unique play yards with their peers! When you enroll your dog they will be evaluated to figure out which Barkternity they will best fit in with. Each Barkternity has their own symbol to represent their group! 

a society for canine students in a university or college, typically for social purposes that include treats, toys, and lots of tail wagging!

Daily Schedule
7am - 9am Drop Off
9 am - 4p m Organized play with an hour of rest
4pm - 7 pm Pick Up 

Each Barkternity will have a detailed schedule that you will receive when your dog is accepted into a group! 

New Student Evaluations
Each new student must be evaluated. Evaluations are a $50 fee and includes the day of daycare your dog will be participating in during their evaluation stay. Our evaluations can take up to a couple of hours to figure out which play group or situation is right for your dog. We want all dogs to be safe, happy and comfortable. If our daycare environment is found to not be a good fit with your dog we will contact you to let you know. 

Evaluations are by reservation only and you must fill out an application prior. Evaluation days will be held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays
