My friend who unfortunately passed was the one who watched my dog Kona and i had difficulty trusting and finding somewhere else to take her, but Bark Avenue really changed my perspective. They are super attentive and answer any and all questions. They have the best reviews and recommendations. I felt extremely comfortable leaving my fur baby in their hands and she loves going. They also gave a little report card after the day of her assessment, which I thought was really cute and showed me how serious they take it. I highly recommend Bark Avenue!!! You won’t regret it.

I was looking for a daycare for my dog for socialization- he was attacked and bit by a neighbor’s dog a month ago and I wanted him to spend time with other dogs to ensure no lasting issues from the attack. I had my dog evaluated at Pals for Pups in Roselle and they rejected him after observing him for 5-10 minutes with 2 dogs saying he was not a good fit but we could come back if another daycare took him in and would recommend him. Thank goodness I found Bark Avenue. They did a 1/2 day evaluation where he was around numerous dogs. He was shy/anxious but no aggression and even played with a few dogs by the end of the morning. I am so grateful to Bark Avenue for giving Buddy a chance. Everyone is so kind and patient; I can rest easy knowing he is in good hands. It’s also nice to know I have a reliable place to use if I need to board him. This is a great place for daycare. I highly recommend you check them out!

We have just started - so far so good. Jules will need some additional hands on training and playtime. Working with trainers to get her needs met.

We have a new puppy and heard about Bark Avenue from a friend. Was so surprised to hear they have a free Puppy Playtime every Sunday. So, we went and it was great. The staff was attentive and professional. The facility was clean from what I saw. I’ve signed our puppy up for obedience classes and look forward to getting to know this place/staff better.

Bark avenue is an amazing place to take your little critters. They are so super nice, wonderful with your pets, and treat each and every pup as their own. I have used them for dog boarding, and play dates and they have a complete blast every time!!! Highly recommend!!!!!

Kelly is an excellent trainer for our dog, Bailey. She explained the different behaviors and how we need to apply them to training Bailey.

We love everyone at Bark Ave. The groomers do a great job at a reasonable price, and we love the trainers there too. The only reason that I didn’t give it 5 stars because I think they need more groomers. If you call for an appointment it will literally be a couple of months to get in. We were lucky this time because we put our dogs on the cancellation wait list and somebody cancelled. Other than that, they are awesome!

Came across Bark Avenue when looking for training. Answered all my questions when I called. Attended their free puppy playtime and was impressed. Signed up for their Puppy Pre-K because of the experience.

Clean area, good staff. Didn't get any real details on assessment, no offer of facility tour. Good advise on how to get dog used to daycare. Overall good experience with room for improvement

I took my dog, Grace, here a few years ago for puppy obedience and had a great experience. I’ve recently adopted another puppy recently and want to socialize him properly since he didn’t have a great start to life and they’ve been open to helping work on his issues, which I’m thankful for. Hoping we can continue bringing our dogs for daycare and boarding!

I've taken my fur baby there, for over a year, and he's had several stays there, also. As a young pup of 10 months, he needed to burn off energy, and he always comes home happy and tired. He's always happy to get there, so that tells me that he's being treated well. I believe the workers truly love animals and love what they do... it shows in the animals. I would, and have, recommend Bark Avenue ❣

We love Bark Avenue they are very reliable and professional here. My dog Deuce just loves coming here, and when home he's out for the evening... And the price fits right in my budget.

This was the first time I boarded my fur-babies. I was a little apprehensive because I didn’t know how they were going to react with all the other dogs and being in a strange place for so long. The Bark Avenue Crew was quick to respond to my text messages and I could see how much fun they were having when I logged into the website. The Crew took such great care of my Boysies and I won’t hesitate to use their services again! And reasonably priced too! THANK YOU Bark Avenue Crew for taking such good care of Riggs and Gerald ❣️

Tim was so helpful in getting us on boarded and evaluated when we were in a bind, so Jax could board with Bark Ave while we were on vacation. I would text and ask every other day how my dog was doing and they were really responsive and detailed regarding his care. I highly recommend Bark Ave!

The staff at Bark Avenue make me and my dog feel like elite stars each time we walk through the doors! Like the show Cheers, "everyone knows your name" here at Bark & they make you feel special & important by getting to know you & your dog personally. The staff shows such care, attention & love to my fur baby, and I wouldn't leave her with anyone else. Thank you Bark Avenue!

We have been taking our pup here for 2 years, and I have never had anything but a pleasant experience! They take great care of my dog, and are always friendly and helpful. We did training as well and we loved it! I always recommend to friends when they ask for a reliable dog boarding facility.

We've been taking our dog scooter there for almost 3 years now. We love the place. And most of all scooter loves the place. When they see us coming in they say scooters name. All of the workers are awesome and friendly. We've donated our old blankets to them.

Bark Avenue treats our dogs like they are their own. Excellent service, friendly, reliable. Can’t say enough great things about the Bark Avenue team!!!

We have been bringing our fur baby there now for 3 years. They post videos of daytime activities so you can see what your baby is doing. They have an excellent groomer. We have left "Claude Monet" there for single days and for weeks at a time. Claude loves it there. It seems like he goes into a doggy depression after not being there for 10 days. Highly recommend them.

My dogs were very happy to go there, very tired when they came home (which was the point). I saw them playing around on the video in the lobby - they had a great time

Our Dog is a big love sponge but has severe anxiety and does not get along with dogs. We have done many training classes with Bark Avenue from basic obedience to agility for the past 3 years. He and I enjoys the classes very much with Kelly and Ashley. During the lockdown with Covid-19, we suspended his training. Unfortunately his separation anxiety and aggression towards dogs has ramped up and we have signed him up to the 3 week board and train with Kelly. We start at the end of the month and are hoping that the boot camp will help him and we can have a calmer and confident dog without the need of medication. Look forward to giving another review after the session. I can say that I trust Kelly with my dog and will 100% recommend training at Bark Avenue as they truly listen to you and will give you options on how to train your dog. They understand that each dog has specific needs and works with the owner for the best outcome.
