Dog and Cat Boarding

Dog cat cuddling

At The Barking Lot, we do everything we can to ensure our guests are content and comfortable.

We offer a variety of accommodations for both dogs and cats, from standard kennels to spacious suites and private quarters for kitties. 

Dogs get to play all day with other dogs in a supervised setting and we provide soft, comfy fleece bedding for quiet time. We can provide premium food tailored to your pet's age and health, but suggest you bring their food from home to avoid a disruption in their feeding routine. You can purchase a toy or treat from our retail store or bring one from home to make their stay more fun. Dogs who come from the same home can share the same kennel.

And let's not forget our feline friends!  Each Kitty Condo includes a large litter box, a comfy sleeping area, and another area to eat and play. The feline lodging is separated from the canine area to provide your cat a calm and restful experience.
