Each day, dogs play in the morning, rest in climate controlled sleeping dens 12 – 2pm, then afternoon play, dinner and final potty breaks.  We have separate yards to make sure dogs are with other dogs of similar size and temperament.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

Kobe loves Barking a Springs so much, and I love their daily updates and pictures! It’s so great that the dogs get to run around the ranch during the day, and get their own bedrooms (no kennels!) to sleep in at night! This place is amazing, and he owners and employees are awesome! We will never take our fur children anywhere else!

Mellisa V.

We called upon Barking Springs to find a service that would take our ailing dog, Rowdy, into their home so he didn’t have to be kenneled. Barking Springs was fantastic! They followed all of our directions and cared for our dog as if he was their own. Simply, Barking Springs is the best and we’re thrilled to have them help us care for our dog.

Vicki Hodson.

Barking Springs has taken care of my most treasured possession, Baxter, many times. The only complaint I have is that I think he likes Jessica more than he likes me! He always has fun with her, and she takes him on special outings. He is even more spoiled when I get home than he was when I left him…..and, that’s pretty spoiled.
