About Our Decatur Location

Focused on your furry family member’s comfort and joy, BHV’s 20-plus years of experience plays into every decision for guests of all sizes.

For example, all baths are completed by a seasoned groomer or a trained bather (most places just use a random employee and do a quick bath). Barking Hound Village also offers de-shed treatments catered to your pup’s coat length and quality.

Check out BHV today and you and your dog can enjoy Atlanta’s most-awarded dog daycare. Highlights include:

  • Live, hi-def 1080p cameras in each yard
  • Half-acre outdoor playscape, including best-in-class K9 Grass turf
  • 4 spacious indoor and outdoor play yards
  • Giant splash pad for year-round fun
  • All-day free play
  • Bathing Service: salon-style bathing that includes a full wash, fluff out with blow dry, ear cleaning, nail trimming, and gland expression
  • Mini Grooms: includes all Bathing Services plus paws / pad trim, facial trim, and sanitary trim
  • Full Groom: includes Mini Groom services plus a full-body cut to your specifications
  • Stand Alone Services: Nail Trim or Grind, Gland Expression, Ear Cleaning, Extra Brush Out

Why Barking Hound Village?

In 1999, Barking Hound Village was founded with a simple promise: We will treat your dogs the same as we treat our own. Where most companies see a dog, we see your family members.

Nearly 20 years later, we are now Atlanta’s largest locally-owned dog services company and we are still delivering on this promise. When you enter our locations, you are not simply entering a store, you are entering your dog’s home-away-from-home. At BHV, you will find a friendly face that knows your dog better than they know you, and your dog will find friends they have had for years.

There are many reasons to love BHV, and we take special pride in …

  • Being one of Atlanta’s oldest and most-awarded dog care business
  • Accommodating dogs of all ages and sizes by offering optionality in all our services
  • One-stop-shop – daycare, boarding, and grooming at nearly all our locations
  • Convenience, allowing pick-up / drop-off anytime we’re open and not requiring daycare reservations

From the moment you walk in, you will feel confident that we are the best in the city and feel comfort that your fur-baby will be treated with the utmost care.

Thank you for learning about BHV and we look forward to welcoming you to our family.

See you soon!

The BHV Team

More Info
BHV team members are keenly aware of a dog’s body language and signs of stress. We understand how dogs communicate; nothing is incidental or accidental – even in their overt behaviors. Dog behavior is complex, then add the dynamics of a group … it becomes even more complex. Our team, however, is well-trained and experienced in the ins-and-outs of maintaining order, whether one-on-one with a dog or within a group setting.

In addition to single-day play rates, BHV also offers 10-day and 30-day packages for your convenience.
