A really good trustworthy safe haven for dogs to relax & have their own vacation while their parents deal with the in-laws during the holidays. Lol

People there are so caring. My dogs have been there regularly for 10 years. They love going. It is great for them to be outside with other dogs. I never worry when I go out of town. More...

I have been bringing Bentley to Bark for over four years. She is nervous around other big dogs and loves her humans and is also high energy. The staff at Bark understood all of this and tailored her daycare accordingly. I highly recommend Bark for daycare and boarding for any temperament of dog. More...

Bark is our go-to when our dogs have too much energy, we're going to be gone most of the day or going on vacation. They go there for play care and boarding. We have nothing but good experiences. Their prices are great and their staff genuinely cares about our dogs. Plus! Sometimes you'll see photos of your dogs on their Facebook page which is awesome and they're always having fun. More...

We've tried several daycare and boarding places in the area and found that our dog is happiest at Bark!. He pulls at the leash to get in and seems anxious to join his friends for play. The staff greets him by name and he's happy to see them. All around our experience and our dog's has been nothing short of phenomenal. More...

Used Bark several times now and no complaints. Just picked my dog up after a week and the staff was great. My dog was well kept, happy, and clean. Not enough to deduct a star but I do wish they would provide an itemized invoice. More...

We did a family trip to Florida and left our 2 Great Danes here. Everything about the process seemed really painless and we received 2 clean dogs that were super happy and appeared to have a great time. Will definitely take my pups back.

My dog Ayla LOVES doggie daycare at Bark! We tried it a couple times because she's destructive at home when we leave her alone while at work. Now she whines at the door if we leave her home, so we bought a daycare package - at a very reasonable price, cheaper than a one time walk! - and she's a regular at her favorite place now. We love how much more socialized she's become , with dogs and men. ( Used to be an issue with her ). Thanks to each and every caring staff member at Bark (particularly Donnae) who greet and love her like your own! I don't know what we'd do without y'all! More...

My Pit - mix Suzy LOVES coming here for doggy daycare and boarding! The staff greet her as though she's a child coming in to school which makes us laugh, and Suzy's equally pleased to see them. Makes me very happy to know our girl is well taken care of while she's there. My wife still calls for updates on her frequently and the staff are always so kind to us and attentive to her - that they're always able to give us great updates that keep our minds at ease while traveling. We are truly grateful for Bark (and all the money they have saved us , since we don't have to replace furniture that she's destroyed while being bored at home anymore, haha). More...

Bark is such an amazing place! I was so nervous to leave my puppy at daycare during my long work shifts, but the staff here has been so great to work with, and even sent me pictures of him having fun with the other dogs for the first few days to ease my nerves! After seeing how much Jax loves the staff, I will never leave him anywhere else!! More...

The only complaint I have is employees not answering the phone. Called 6-7 times in a 3 hour period and no one answered. They did apologize when I got ahold of them. Our pups seemed to like it and did good for their 5 day stay! More...

This was our boys first week to stay with strangers. We have always had family watch them while we vacation. My husband and I were very pleased from the moment we stepped foot in the facilities to take a tour. We were greeted immediately and waited just a few minutes for them to finish a pet pick up and then we began the tour. You can feel from the staff that their passion is for dogs. We were very impressed with the "do your duty #1 & #2" pens before joining into the outside play area. Not only do they have two large outdoor play areas but also an indoor play area. The boys got to play from 7am until 7pm. We are amazed at the play time they receive!! The kennel areas are nice size also. We know that after playing all day they had a nice area to sleep comfortably. We are so happy to say that Bark! is now a part of our family!!! More...

The only place we have ever left our Rosie. Rosie doesn't do well with other pets so she can't enjoy the daycare play times but she is loved on by the staff so much. She has separation anxiety badly but the staff here keeps her happy as if she were home. The staff is so sweet and Rosie is always happy to see her friends when she stays (human friends). More...

The dogs are always happy to go right in and start their fun stay, either for the day or extended "resort" stay. Emma is elderly and loves the extra attention she receives. She also needs medication which is never a problem for them to give to her. Juno also loves hanging out with all her friends. The swimming pool is great along with all the attention. Their cousin, whiteout, sometimes goes with them. He enjoys that someone is always in the yard with them. A fun thing to do is play ball. The staff is always friendly on the phone and in the office. It's so nice to see your dog on Facebook having fun! More...

We absolutely love Bark! We have tried other kennels in the area and haven’t liked them near as much. They understand that our dog Loki can be a handful and that our other dog Flash is super shy but also super sweet. In the event that something unexpected comes up, Bark has always been willing to help out any way they can. As soon as we say “daycare” to our boys they run downstairs and jump in the car! They love it here! More...

I called last week to make a reservation for my dogs and explain all the things I needed once they got there. The lady on the phone was so nice and understanding to everything they will need. She reassured me that they would be fine and she would play with my dogs . I’m so happy that she will take care and love my fur babies just as I do. More...

This is my third time taking the pup to Bark Hotel. Staff is always warm and welcoming when I pick up and drop off, plus the staff regularly updates the status of Remi with pics. She's also famous on IG now because of them! Best part is she comes back smelling waaaay better than when I dropped her off. More...

Staff was great at keeping me updated on how my furr baby was handling the new day care. My dog was abused as a young pup and is fearful of people, I wanted to make sure the staff knew how to handle a dog that’s been abused for their safety and my dogs. I was informed that during the 1st half of the day my pup was nervous but they approached her gently to reassure her that they were nice people. By the afternoon my pup was more comfortable with the staff. This helped me feel better about putting my dog at a place where the staff knew how to handle her and her situation. I will be back.

My dogs love BARK! The staff is great, prices are reasonable, and they offer all day playcare with overnight stays. I love that they post pictures on their FB page and sometimes I'm able to see my little dudes during their stay. I know that they are in good hands and it puts me at ease while traveling. Thanks BARK! More...

Our very large puppy Cooper love BARK!  He waits by the door wagging his tail each morning.  He is so sweet and tired when he gets home.  They feed him if we don't have time in the morning, and they keep him overnight if I'm running crazy late from work and can't get there in time to pick him up.  They have been such a saving grace for us since we moved here!!He really loves his puppy buddies, and I imagine they miss him when he doesn't come to puppy play dates! He can't tell me in words, but he tells me in every other way how much he loves being part of the BARK! family.  I strongly recommend BARK for doggie daycare and boarding. More...

Picked up my dog after staying 5 nights. Paid for a bath. She was handed over to me soaking wet, filthy and smelly. Very frustrating. Won't be going back.Edit: there was miscommunication with the staff and my dog did not receive a bath. Explains her mess. They have offered her a free bath. More...

With another holiday behind us, we wanted to take this opportunity to write a review of Bark Hotel! We have used Bark since they opened and would not feel comfortable leaving our Charlie with any other pet care facility. Charlie attends regular playcare and you can see his excitement as we approach the building so we do not hesitate in leaving him overnight during trips and holidays! Ms. Ava, Ms. Mercedes and the entire staff are wonderful and really love our pup. We HIGHLY recommend Bark Hotel! We love you Bark Family! More...

I take my pup here about twice a week. Each time I drop her off she's pulling her lead to get in faster. She seems to respond very well to the staff and is always worn out when we get home, which makes me very happy. The staff has always been friendly and the rates are reasonable. The few cons I have are superficial, for example it would be nice to have a website that we could login to and view a live feed of the back yard. Other than these small things, I have been very satisfied with their service. More...

My two dogs literally jump out the window to come here for doggie daycare! The fact that they adore coming here speaks volumes to my husband and I. ..we have no hesitation leaving them there for the day or even for an extended time period while on vacation. The staff has taken the time to learn the individual personalities of each of my dogs (because they are vastly different!!) and attend to them lovingly with that in mind. We've found the right spot for our girls!! More...

When your dog knows their daycare by name and gets excited just by hearing "do you want to go play at Bark?", you know you've found the right place! Everyone is so friendly and I love the way they greet Azul by name every time we go in. Azul loves you guys, and I love that he has such a great place to burn off energy with his doggy-friends!

I've taken my foster failure Tecun to these folks several times over the last year, and they've always been fantastic with him. He was a street rescue, and as such, came with some baggage. The staff here has always been accommodating, allowing him alone time in the yard, as well as putting him in a kennel where he can't see or react to other dogs. He gets his meds on time, and he's always happy and healthy when I pick him up. I'd recommend these folks to any of my friends. More...

My dog Zeeki has been going to Bark for playcare for 4 years, 1-3 days a week since she was 6 months old. She's turning 5 this month. Still loves going and comes home tired and happy, which makes me happy. I highly recommend BARK for play. She's getting a bath there every once in a while too. Which helps me even more! More...

I have been bringing my two dogs Annie and Faythe hear for a few years when I leave town.  My dogs are a little fence aggressive but are not once they are in the play area and the employees have been very patient.  They have taken amazing care of my dogs and I never worry about them while I am away. I highly recommend them for taking care of your pets.  They are also very reasonably priced. More...

I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with the playcare provided at Bark!  Reading some of these other reviews definitely has me surprised as these experiences are SO much different from my own.  I have never boarded my dog as I typically have family who watches him over long times away.  This review is in reference to playcare only which he has been attending regularly since July 2015.Buddy goes to Bark! about three days a week and loves it.  Once we turn on the street he starts barking and wagging his tail.  He leads himself straight to the door and is promptly greeted by the staff with lots of affection and by name.  They clearly have taken a lot of time to know him and I can tell how much he trusts them in turn.When I pick him up he is happy and calm.  As he is WAY high energy, he rarely passes out from a day of play; however, his energy level is low and he seems content and manageable.  We even got a Christmas card with his picture and a sweet note from one staff member.The only thing that keeps me from 5 stars is the lack of webcams available.  His previous daycare had them and I really miss this amenity.  I spend about $250 for 15 days.  Well worth it in my opinion!  I have a happy, healthy, and well adjusted puppy thanks to the caring staff at Bark!.

Our dog absolutely loves Bark. The staff seems really engaged with the animals and develop personal relationships with them. I've never had to worry about our dog getting bullied or worn out with the supervision in the play yard they provide. The pricing is great, too. Boarding includes daycare, which is nice that you aren't being nickle/dimed for every add-on. I also like the Bark play passes, where you get a discount for buying multiple days. My only recommendation would be to offer a punch card so the owners can also keep track of days left. More...

When leaving a member of your family somewhere you want it to be more than just business. The owners, Karen & Gil really care about their K9 guests and work tirelessly to provide safe and fun accommodations. I remember them beaming proudly in their yellow Bark shirts when they first announced they were expanding to McKinney! They have made many facility improvements since acquiring Bark and hire staff that have the same caring and fun attitude. It shows on the pictures of the happy dog faces. Your dog will be happy too!

Brody loves his visits to Bark! He is actually excited when we get out of the car to go in and doesn't want to leave when I pick him up (which is amazing as he has seperation anxiety). I've been in the animal welfare profession for a decade and am very particular when it comes to the care of my "fur baby" when I can't be there for him. I have no worries while he is there and feel he is a part of a loving and caring extended family who puts his needs first. He comes home smelling clean and wonderful which is a tribute to the care he receives as he is not an "easy" bather! I'm happy Bark is here for my best friend! More...

We have been using Bark for over 2 years. Both previous and past owners have consistently shown good service. I think the area of improvements could be a doggie report on pickup; when they are feed or given RX and how they socialized while they are there. I know that could be subjective but it would be great to know.....Charlie just hung out under the tree all day or he played with 2 beagles all day. They do a great job almost daily posting play pics. Our dog has never come home with any ailments or hurt. Cost is on par for the services. More...

Bark took GREAT care of our puppy, Chip, over spring break.  He came back more calm and obedient...just a plus for us.   I love the fact that play care is included in the boarding package and that is part of the reason I chose this facility for boarding.  I definitely will use them again.He has also come to just play at Bark quite a few times.  He seems to love it and the staff.  They all seem kind and caring and attentive.

Charlie Bear seems to like Bark.  It's been awhile since we dropped in for daycare or boarding but our experiences so far have been positive.  He comes home exhausted, but not to the point of limping or any other physical ailment.  You can tell they gave the little bear a work out (as he is much calmer after a day at Bark).  We purchased a play care pre-paid package that you can use anytime.  The rate for a single occupant boarding suite (standard, not the cadillac) is $36 with 1/2 off your second pet if sharing.  The place is clean, smells good, and the staff is friendly.  Other dogs seem to thumbs up the place too - I've watched several hop out of their cars and trot up to the front entrance, wagging tail in tow.So far so good!

My little guy loves it here.  He gets so excited.  We have used Bark multiple times both for playcare and overnight stays.  I am a very picky pet owner and the little man is in his double digits so he needs extra love.  The staff at Bark has always been helpful, friendly, and genuinely care about him.There is plenty of play space and it is supervised - always important.  It would be nice to have webcam and I've had that in the past with boarders.  But honestly, it hasn't been an issue.  Every time I have arrived he has been well watched and happy.  Even when I call, someone can immediately give me a report on how he is doing, how he is behaving, and if there are any issues.I do recommend taking advantage of their bath and nail trim after a long stay.  Nothing like picking up freshly bathed clean-smelling fur babies to have one less thing on the to-do list.

22 June 2012

I have taken my 2 pups here for doggie daycare and for boarding since they opened. We all love it!  They have lots of outdoor space for the big dogs and separate play areas for the little ones.  They even bring out the kiddie pools in the warm weather and bring the pups inside to play when extreme weather hits.  As well as closely watching your pets where they will bring your pet inside if they think they are getting overheated.  Lynn is the favorite care taker of my two boys.  They get very excited when they see her to where I wonder if they don't like her more than me!  She'll call with any comments/questions about their care.  The team tests new dogs play personalities and will not allow them into play care if there are any hesitations regarding the dogs.  This practice not only keeps the other dogs safe in play care but also the workers that are there in the middle of the play. This puts my mind at ease since I  have a very large dog that tends to get attacked by smaller/medium breeds trying to prove themselves when we've gone to play at dog parks.Just waiting for them to install video cameras in the play yard and play rooms!  Definitely recommend!

I think my dogs forgot to miss me they had such a good time at this kennel!!  I'm always skeptical of kennels down here with 'boutique' or 'spa' or 'luxury' in the name.  But this place is so great!   From the food to the shampoo, this place is such a great deal....and its location is perfect for someone who commutes down 121 in the morning. I can't believe the quality I got for the price.   They were also very accommodating when the IceStorm of 2011 had me stranded in Newark and Indianapolis for a few more days than planned, and their flexibility was much appreciated.  The faux chandeliers in the higher priced suites are nice touch.

BARK!... the boutique hotel for dogs, is located in McKinney on McKinney Ranch Pkwy.  They are basically at 121 and 75, on the Northwest side.  We've used other boarding facilities in the past, but BARK is so much better than anywhere else we've seen! Our dog loves going to daycare, her first day was today since they just opened this week.  The doggie hotel is so nice and I am going to have them board my dog when we go out of town for Spring Break.  The suites are so nice! The prices are really read more » competitive too and the staff is beyond friendly! I highly recommend giving them a try! More...
