Fun Activities For Your Pet                            Prices are subject to change without notice.

Many customers like to schedule additional activities for their pets. We have several to choose from....for all ages and sizes. Please schedule these upon "check-in" when boarding or call for an appointment. These activities can be added to any boarding visit, daycare visit, or homecare visit. And a few of these activities are CAT FRIENDLY!


Calming wade in the May:

Not available May through September 

The May River, always inviting, and only minutes from The Bark Shack. Same as above with air-conditioned car ride, an abundance of fresh water for drinking, and a romp/run in the warm salt water or soothing, relaxed walk/wade.  Pups get warm bath upon return to remove the sand & salt! Please schedule this activity 48 hours in advance, so we can plan accordingly.

(This is an hour (+) long activity, including drive time.) Picture included at no extra charge.
$75/per pet (second pet is $75 due to an additional staff member being required to assist)

dunkin donuts ride

Dunkin' Dream:

An enjoyable drive to Dunkin Donuts, your pup enjoys the breeze in his/her face, then the smells as we near their bakery. As we wait in the drive thru, your pet anticipates the taste of their treat to come. Let us know what you wish to order for her. Can she have a Munchkin? A dollop of Whipped Cream? Your pup is welcome to whatever YOU CHOOSE.   

She will love this exciting & tasty activity!

$25 for one pet.(add $10 per additional family member)
(Picture included at no extra charge)


"Ollie" the Ultimate Multi-tasker!

Private Fetch or Frisbee

Dogs visiting with us are allowed to play & socialize with others. Often owners prefer a bit more One-on-One. We offer private Fetch & Frisbee. (aka. "we throw the ball, then chase the dog"...for those that don't quite understand the "Fetching concept.")

$20 for a 20 minute plus Fetch Fest

(no extra cost for additonal family members at the same time)

Kelly Snuggle Time

A Bed-Time Belly Rub or Snuggle Time

Perfect for puppies or older dogs when the owner wants a little extra TLC. These pups enjoy a private visit to a relaxing Snuggle pit (quiet room with soft fluffy blankets), One-on-One puppy love with his/her favorite staffer. We can provide loving belly rubs to your pet or use this time for simple brushing (not for serious combing or dematting). This is not a grooming experience, just a calming, relaxing One-on-One time.

($20 for 20 minute snug fest.) No cost for additional family members as long as all are "snugged" at same time.

Picture included at no extra charge. Available for cats too!

dog walking

A Private Walk or Run May Be Up Your Pets Alley!

We tether securely, then hit the road. We prefer to run towards the Recreation Center or maybe a stroll thru OLD TOWN. Maybe even a run to the school & further & back!

$25/per pet for 20 minutes

(second pet is $25 due to an additional staff member being required to assist)

Picture included at no extra cost.

Tasty Treat

You know your dog better than anyone! Does he like a noon-time snack? Does she like a nighttime treat? Treat them to a treat! 

* Frozen Peanut Butter PUPscicle 
* Pumpkin PUPscicle (great for digestion)


You are always welcome to bring your pets snacks from home. We will offer them to your pet at no extra cost to you.

therapeutic bed

kuranda style cot

Comfy Bed:

Just as you are welcome to bring your own snacks, toys ANYTHING from home, you are also welcome to bring your pets own beds. Just remember, though, your pet may never chew his/her bed at home, in a kennel situation, that isnt always the case.                                                       If you prefer one of our comfy therapeutic beds to ease their bones/muscles, we offer these at a minimal upcharage. If your pet is playing or being groomed, the bed will be stored. However, when back in their room, they can have their comfy beds 100% of the time. If you don't bring a bed from home and prefer to NOT pay for an upgrade, NO WORRIES, we do offer every pet a standard bed every night.  Upgrade to a Therapeutic Bed or Kuranda Style Cot for $3 each.

Pet Pix
Wanna see how your pet is doing? We will snap a quick pix or video and text or email to you! Most people order 1 or 2 per day. Only $ 3 per pix!
