An awfully, terribly rude owner. He yells at neighbors, harassed them, says sexist things to them, and threatens them. He’s always outside smoking, too.

Visited with a relative and the dogs seemed so happy to have that big play area and Don had very good control of the animals. The place was clean and welcoming.

We love this place! Don treats every dog like it's his own. The prices are great, the place is clean and my dog loves being dropped off there to play with his friends. When I visit the city I love knowing that my dog is taken care of by someone we trust. Don is best! I highly recommend.

I've known the owner for 20 years. No one is more devoted to the care of our fur babies. He'll treat yours as lovingly as he treats his own. A wonderful doggie day care!!

Took my dog here after my previous doggy daycare closed due to Covid. The pups have a more structured day, with both physical and mental exercise. You can tell Don really cares about these dogs (and the fact that he is a certified dog trainer is definitely a bonus)!

We've been leaving our dog with Don since they were at the old location in Northern Liberties. He's super flexible with time and even payments. Towne Barker is way cheaper than all the other dog daycares I looked at in the area. Our dog comes home tires and chill after being there and he's very friendly with our dog and even me as a customer. I would definitely recommend the Towne Barker if you need a place for you dog to hang and play while you're at work.

We love The Towne Barker!! I feel absolutely confident leaving my pup here knowing she is loved and taken good care of! She loves going, obviously has a great time, and we never have trouble with her missing us! The humans there are pretty awesome too! LOL

The Towne Barker is awesome! The owner truly loves dogs and takes great care of all who spend time with him. He is also a great trainer - My dog was older and only had a couple basic skills- Don had him doing a new skill in under 20 minutes of working with him! I highly recommend this place!

My dog Ringo has seizures and needs a lot of care (plus medication 4 times a day). Don does a fantastic job with him and Ringo always comes home happy and even better behaved than normal! I recommend the towne barker to all dog owners. The boarding service is also great!

Our dogs love going to the Towne Barker - they can’t wait to get to “camp” everyday. Afterwards, they always come home happy and tired. Don’s expertise has really helped to train our very energetic puppy. Don is the best and really does treat each dog as if they were his own. Towne Barker is the only place we trust with our dogs and I would highly recommend it to any dog owner!

Bottom Line - STAY AWAY! I went out to check out the Town Barker facilities with my dog. I was considering boarding him for the weekend, and the owner suggested that I come out so he could evaluate my dog and have me sign some paperwork. I have a small dog (20 lb) male terrier mix. Upon entering the store, I gagged at the smell and had to fight the urge to vomit. The place smelled horribly of feces and urine! Giving him the benefit of doubt I continued into the store. He welcomed me, and then gave me a form to sign, a release from harm form. There were at least a dozen dogs inside a gated area. Of course they were "exited" at a new dogs arrival and were barking and actively running to and fro in their enclosed area. When my dog was brought into the area he was immediately surrounded and terrified. Don was with him and was trying to introduce him to the pack, but even I know that dogs are territorial and the proper way to introduce dogs is to do it on neutral ground. When I asked Don what the daily routine was for the dogs, when he walked them, played with them, he stated he did not do any of those things. He said they get "free play" all day long and he just watches them. They are not walked or exercised during the day and are allowed to defecate and urinate in the room! This is certainly not a habit I want my dog to learn! He then asked if I signed the release? I told him no, that I would not be needing his services, and thanked him for his time
