Play indoor and outdoor
At Bark Avenue we understand the dog psyche and their need to exercise. We provide specific areas for small, medium and large dogs and have plenty of room for play in both indoor and outdoor areas.
Boredom leads to destructive behaviours like chewing, digging, or barking, and play keeps a dog’s body and mind active. An active dog is a happy dog and our goal is for your pet to have as much fun as possible!
