Family is Everything–
and that includes our four legged companions. Bed & Bark was designed from the ground up, to create the safest and most stress-free vacation your pet has ever had.
Pets are Our Passion
Why Bed & Bark
Designed to mimic the comforts of home, each suite is fully sealed and sound insulated, has an individual filtered air supply, a private outdoor, turfed play yard, and a canine concierge specialist for personal care and attention.
One on One Day Play
Each pup will have a fun, one on one play session with our care staff in one of our large turfed play yards. Bed & Bark currently offers individual Day Play, rather than group play. This allows us to safely welcome dogs of all personality types for a special day.

Everyone is so friendly!
They took such good care of our precious fur baby! The postcards describing his demeanor, the comments of how he was throughout the day, and the picture of his play time were something we looked forward to every day while we were on vacation. The access to the video to be able to check on our dog anytime from 8:30am to 6:30pm EST was very nice and calmed my wife's nerves while we were away. Note that the food and water bowls may not be in the field of view of the camera. Check the room where your pet will be so that you have an idea of where the food and water are. This will give you peace of mind that your pet is fed and watered and save you a phone call while on vacation. They also cleaned and dried our dog's bed after he stepped in some waste and got it on his bed, and provided a temporary bed for him to use until it his was clean. Going forward, we will be recommending this place for all of our friends with pets and continuing to use them while we vacation. Couldn't be more happy with the service provided.
Only place I'll take my doggie 🙂 she's always happy when she gets there and happy when I pick her up! She's never come home sick (I've had this issue at other places) and always clean! I also love getting check ups and pics of her while we're away!
The only other time I boarded Pepper was seven years ago right after I got her and she was traumatized when she got back. I never boarded her again…until this past weekend. Bed and Bark was a far cry from my only other experience. Pepper was put up in her own room, played with individually on a daily basis, and just genuinely loved and cared for by the staff. They also sent me postcards every day with lots of pictures of my baby! As someone who takes puppy pictures every five seconds, this made me so happy and really eased any anxiety I might have had. I will definitely be bringing her back here, maybe even for day play! I live in a one bedroom apartment so I think this was the most run around time she’s had in a while!
Bailey’s first day in daycare, he was very happy when we picked him up and we heard he did terrific! Everyone there is very friendly and very professional and always answer the phone and always answer your questions. Bailey will definitely be back❤️
Bed and Bark has been painstakingly designed with the guidance of experts, utilizing the industries most innovative products and practices. Being one of the best places for dog boarding is not a goal, it is who we are.
Every one of our dog units have access to a private outdoor play yard. All of the play yards feature K9 turf, because our dogs are used to going outside and being on grass.
If your baby needs something that you do not see listed, just let us know. Our specialists are here for you, to provide all the love and continuation of care your pet is used to.
Our facility features a full PetAirapy UV Air Sanitizing system. This system is proven to kill 99.9% of all airborne virus and bacterial pathogens including kennel cough, canine influenza, canine distemper, canine coronavirus, feline calicivirus, and more. This system also protects against human airborne pathogens.
Bed & Bark Boutique
We’ve done all the research for you, and have stocked our boutique with the highest quality food and supplies available for your fur-babies. Our boutique features Orijen and Acana pet foods, Lupine lifetime guarantee collars and leashes, and many fun, high-quality toys and gifts.
Solid, Sealed Walls
Our walls between units are solid and fully sealed so no urine or dirty water can flow between units like chain link allows. Being fully sealed stops line of sight and fence fighting behaviors, further insulates against sound, and promotes a calming den-like atmosphere.
Custom HVAC System
Each suite has its own fresh, sanitized air supply. This is important in mitigating disease transmission and reduces foul odors which can increase stress in our pups. Our cattery is on its own air handling unit as well, so no air passes between cats and dogs, a further barrier against disease transmission and stress.
Bed & Bark features a fully sprinkled building and attic, and noncombustible interior in all dog suites. The extensive fire prevention system is under 24 hour monitoring with backup power systems.
While we hope our area never experiences an emergency, when we promise to care for your furbaby we mean it! Our facility features a full generator backup power system capable of running our entire facility indefinitely.
We are a no drain facility because standing water is a breeding ground for disease. Our facility features a CleanWise system. After we remove any solid waste, this system sprays water and a premeasured sanitizing agent which is then wet-vacuumed up leaving a meticulously cleaned and fully sanitized floor.
EPA Approved Waste Disposal
Bed & Bark imported a special machine from Europe to properly eliminate all of our dog waste to meet the highest guidelines set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency. No dog waste at Bed & Bark is sent to a landfill, instead it is placed in a special macerator and sent to the water treatment plant.
Green and Responsible
Building from the ground up allowed us to incorporate green features throughout our facility. Some of these include large windows for natural light, insulation and large overhangs for energy conservation, a well to irrigate landscaping, and our macerator which substantially reduces plastic and waste sent to landfills.
Any guest presenting signs of an unknown illness will be transferred to our quarantine area until cleared by a partner veterinarian. Our quarantine is under negative pressure, has its own air handling, UV air scrubbers, and comfortable accommodations separate from other animal handling areas.
No one cares for Family, like Family
That’s why when you come to Bed & Bark, you’ll see our family, and work family, working side by side. Following our hearts, we created a resort that mimics all the comforts of home, that cares for fur-babies like our own family, and even offers some fun and relaxation for our pets too.
All Are Welcome
Given Bed & Bark’s design, we are able to welcome and properly care for all dogs! Aggressive, intact, destructive, anxious, submissive, we can properly accommodate all pets and we will work with you to ensure both comfort and exceptional care.
Beyond Best In Class Facility
Pets are our passion, and this drives us to provide the very best for each guest every time. Your baby will have a care specialist ensuring your pet receives the personal care and attention they are used to and deserve.
