We have been taking our 11 month old puppy to Bark Avenue for about 6 months now and we love it. Charlee enjoys going there to play and we love that she burns off a lot of her energy. We also have Bark Avenue groom her and they do a great job with that as well. We have also taken advantage of their overnight boarding services. The staff is always friendly and love all the dogs that they have. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a place to take their dogs."- Bret A.

The staff is fantastic- you couldn't find a friendlier, more personable collection of dog-lovers. Our Samoyed Pearl is always happy to go see her daycare friends-and comes home with a smile on her face. - John D.

I have a story to share that was a life saver not just for my pet, Yoshi, but also for me. I had been in the hospital and came home just to go into congestive heart failure. I did not know what to do. For me I could call the ambulance and for Yoshi I called Syd (Bark Avenue) who became our angel. She came and got Yoshi at 12am before the ambulance even came. God Bless you Syd. I have to acknowledge all the owners and staff for their kindness to all the dogs in their care. I love the placement of the dogs due to their size and needs. They also plan events such as their puppy bowl games. All I have to say is "want to go to the puppy house?" And my pet Yoshi is jumping like crazy and ready, ready, ready to go! - Drucilla H.

We've been taking our dog(s) to Bark Ave for a few years now and every time I pick my dog up, she's worn out and happy! They truly take the time to listen to special specifications you have for your dog and if they cannot answer your question, they find an answer in a timely manner! (When we boarded her over Christmas break, they even took the time to brush her teeth 1x a day!) Their customer service is fantastic! We are loyal to the Ankeny dog park and everyone there always talks so highly about Bark Ave. They truly let dogs be dogs in a family-like environment. I refuse to take my dog anywhere else! This place is amazing... We love it! - Nina S.
