Small dogs are much more comfortable in a home environment than a big warehouse. That’s why we run Bark to Basics in our home -literally.
Top-notch care begins with a top notch staff. That’s why we insist on a high staff to small dog ratio with a staff who are dog*tec trained and certified.
We believe good care is not a free for all. That’s why we maintain a daily routine of fun, rest, and love designed to send your dog home just the right amount of tired.
Our staff oversees all play sessions, assuring everyone is having a fun and safe time. Whenever weather permits we take our games outside to our large, secured backyard. Rainy days mean romping in our hangout room.
Not so much a specific time of day, just an all day positive reinforcement of good small dog manners like polite sits and coming when called.
Many veterinarians have expressed concern about all day play, and we agree. So we build in quiet time in our sleeping room. Your dog can choose between a couch spot or a private crate if she’d like to enjoy a nap time chew.
We know how hard you worked to potty train your small dog. That’s why we provide all day access to the yard and actively reinforce good toilet manners.
If your small dog is a cuddler, she’ll be in good hands. Our staff loves to pamper and no dog at Bark to Basics is ever turned down for a cuddle session.
