The Bark House: San Diego


about us

Bark House San Diego is the place your dog will love to play, socialize, and sleep. We believe the best environment for pups is a balance of structure and playtime. Every dog that visits The Bark House gets the personal attention they need and deserve.

Services include  daily pack walks with free pick up and drop off at the location of the owner’s choice.

Rather than leaving your dog alone at home while you’re at work, join the Bark House pack where your best fur friend can enjoy company and some of that beautiful San Diego weather.

This is NOT a house where we simply allow the dogs to have full freedom without any rules or boundaries and have them interact without any knowledge of proper canine behavior and respect.

This is also NOT a warehouse-style facility where dogs are merely thrown together in a “cageless” environment to fend for themselves. We are comfortable with all breeds, sizes, and dispositions – from overly needy, loving dogs to red-zone aggressive canines, we know how to properly care for YOUR uniquely special dog.

We live, eat, and sleep dogs here at The Bark House, and your canine’s care here will be second best to NONE. We are passionate for what we do and take immense pride in our work.

The Bark House is a licensed and insured business and we strive to provide the best possible service in all of San Diego



Our Services



Required Vaccinations

It is imperative that all dogs entering The Bark House are up to date on all vaccines, including any and all puppy boosters and deworming.

These vaccines include Distemper/Parvovirus (DAPP), Kennel Cough (Bordetella) and Rabies for all dogs over 4 months old. Please be prepared to provide proof of vaccination. We accept emailed or scanned vaccine records as an effort to keep paper usage at a minimum. While we understand that the idea of vaccinating can be controversial among pet owners, those that require our services must adhere to the vaccination requirements to ensure the safety of every dog we have the pleasure of having at The Bark House.

Boarding is reserved for our Campers and existing clients. We are currently NOT taking new Boarding Clients.

We ask our clients to provide their dog's with their food of choice upon boarding. We feel it's imperative to maintain each dogs individual diet and most importantly to avoid upset stomachs. Proof of current vaccinations required for the stay.

Our Cooper is so HAPPY and excited to play with the other pups. He loves Hector who is amazing with them. I’m very comfortable leaving our baby with someone we trust!
