Your pup will receive regular exercise to maintain a healthy weight, relief from boredom, separation anxiety and destructive behavior. Their socialization with people & other dogs will improve and their overall happiness will increase.
The Exploration is to ensure that your pup will fit into our free roam and very social environment, that they don't have any aggressive behaviors that would endanger any other pups, and that they don't have any anxiety that would stress them out or make them uncomfortable. We want all pups visiting Barkatopia to have a relaxing and fun stay with us!
We ask that you request an Exploration appointment with us by giving us a call or shooting us an email. This visit could be up to 5 hours, please be available if your pup needs to be picked-up early. Your deposit will be refunded if Barkatopia is not suited to your pup's needs.
Free roam/cage free means that your pup will have indoor and outdoor space to run and play freely for the entirety of their day. We have no cages or crates here! We have an amazing staff to supervise your pup and make sure they're having a blast all day. Take a look at our photo gallery to see some pictures of our facilities and cute pups!
No, we ask that you request an appointment through our website or give us a call. We have a limited capacity and want to ensure that all pups who have reserved an appointment can come and play with us.
The same goes for passport holders; even if you have a passport you must request a DayPlay appointment with us to reserve your pup's spot.
Yes, your pup will need to come to us on a leash and leave us on a leash. Please do not bring anything personal for your pup. They will receive lots of treats and water and will have a full itinerary of things to do while they are in paradise.
For safety reason's we don't allow anyone into the free roam area of our building. Boop cams allow you to download an app to your smart phone and watch your pup play with their friends at anytime during their specific visit. *Coming soon*
Medium to large pups will be separated from small and older pups to keep all our pups happy and safe!
Puppies will have their own space and, depending on their size, they will be separated into the safest pup size group for them.
Of course! As long as your pup has passed our mandatory first visit Exploration we love and accept all pups here at Barkatopia!
We are only allowed to administer topical medication to your pup. Any other types of medication (oral or injection etc.) must be given to your pup before they come to visit us or after they are home.
Unfortunately, we are not accepting dogs with serious medical conditions at this time. Please feel free to contact us with any questions and we will do our best to work on a pup by pup basis.
We offer early drop off one hour before we open and late pick-up one hour after we close for a small additional fee. Please make sure to add this when requesting your DayPlay appointment.
Early drop off is 6am and late pick-up at 7pm.
Please call in emergency situations.
Failure to notify us of a late non-scheduled pick-up time will result in an additional charge of $5 per 15 minutes.
Yes, if your pups have passports with us we offer a multi-dog discount (all except HolliPop's). We also offer a multi-dog discount on full days. There are restrictions so please refer to the DayPlay and Passports section of our website to read more.
A sleepy pup is nothing to be concerned about after they leave paradise. Your pup may be more worn out than usual when they come home because they've had a busy day of running and playing with their friends.
