Words to Bark By

Generally my dog gets nervous around strangers so I was initially nervous to board him.  Turns out he loves this boarding facility. He has been coming here several times a year for about 3 years with no issues. He comes home and sleeps so I know they have allowed him plenty of playtimes. Their hours are also much more accommodating and the animals don’t seem to be caged for as long as other places I toured. Definitely two thumbs up!

My Vizsla, Portis, had been going to barking hound for over 13 years. The organization certainly cares about your dog. He was sort of the leader of the pack. Back in the summer, he developed a bleeding cancer and his life was saved because they noticed a change in his behavior and called me. We got proper treatment. It extended his life another 8 months. I will miss him forever, but I’m forever grateful for the extra time I had with my companion! Thank you, Barking Hound.
