Trial Day

We understand that not every dog thrives in a group or in a stimulating environment, which is why evaluation is important to ensure the enjoyment and safety of all guests. A trial day for your dog will allow us to assess their comfort levels with various aspects of our space, play style, and behaviours.

We may suggest a couple more half days prior to boarding or if for any reason we feel we cannot provide your dog the right environment, we will give you suggestions for alternate pet care.

All dogs are individuals and as such not all are suited to our environment, The Bark Inn is committed to making sure our guests have a happy, healthy and safe visit with every effort made to provide a low stress and fear free environment.

A reservation is set for your trial date after submission of the forms and records, please book well in advance of boarding needs.
