At Bark + Boarding we strive to make sure all dogs are safe and comfortable in our environment. If your dog has never been to our daycare, a dog daycare evaluation (lasting 2 hours minimum) is required to begin service.  Want to get the most out of your evaluation?  Let pup spend the day with us on eval day!  The longer you leave pup, the better for everyone!  We get a chance to get to know your dog and your dog has a chance to relax in his/her new environment. Evaluations are $25 and are done between 10 a.m.-2 p.m. (on the hour) Monday-Friday and between 11 a.m.-2 p.m. (on the hour) Saturday. What's required?  Dogs must be at least 3 months old and current on bordetella, distemper (DHLPP or DHPP) and rabies vaccines (once 4 months old). In addition, all dogs six months or older must be spayed/neutered.

To set up the evaluation, you can choose your appointment on our website or you can call us at 703-931-5057. We recommend that before your arrival, you fill out our daycare application so we can best serve you and your furry friend.
