Smart Doggy Day Care

Additional safety measures have been added to our routine to keep our customers and employees safe during the pandemic:

  • CURB SIDE DROP OFF AND PICK UP FOR ALL DAY CARE AND BOARDING RESERVATIONS. Leashed dogs are escorted by staff members to and from the customers’ cars.  Just park and call!

  • SECURE CREDIT CARD PURCHASES FOR DAY CARE, BOARDING, GROOMING AND RETAIL CAN BE INITIATED OVER THE PHONE AT PICK UP OR IN OUR SOFTWARE SYSTEM AT YOUR CONVENIENCE.  Customers receive emailed receipts and a history of their transactions is always available in their online account.

  • STAFF WEAR FACE MASKS AT ALL TIMES WHILE INTERACTING WITH THE CUSTOMERS, DOGS AND ONE ANOTHER.  The dogs are responding well to the staff in masks! After all, we sound and smell the same, we still toss toys, give them lots of love, and dole out the training treats!

  • ENHANCED CLEANING ROUTINES INCLUDE DISINFECTING CUSTOMER LEASHES AND PROVIDED SUPPLIES AT DROP OFF, SCHEDULED STAFF HAND WASHING/ SANITIZING, SANITIZING HIGH TOUCH SURFACES AND ITEMS ON A 30 MINUTE SCHEDULE.  Our regular cleaning routines are methodical and through, so adding on a few extra steps with our sanitizing solution is easy to accommodate. We always take pride in our clean facility, now we’re taking it to the next level!


What makes our Smart Doggy Day Care program unique?

Our structured day care will keep your furry friend focused and engaged while they enjoy a day of fun, exercise and socialization.  Daily activities include:


    – First thing in the morning, we organize your dog’s play group into smaller groups of 4-6 dogs. This short play session with a smaller group warms up the dog’s minds and bodies and makes for a smoother transition from single (or double) dog households to group play.

  • A Positive Method One-On- One Training Session

    – Each dog receives this constructive, individually tailored training time every day to work on basic obedience skills, fun, simple agility skills and also benefits from bonding one-on- one with their handlers. Training sessions are 10 minutes long and are given during the 1 hour long mid-day rest break.

  •  Lots of Group Play Time

    – Between Drop Off and the mid-day rest break and then again
    after the break until Pick Ups begin your dog will have at least 5 hours to run with their friends and play with toys in our securely fenced indoor and outdoor play yards. During this time they are always accompanied and monitored by a BVB Dog Handler trained in our Compassionate Care Guidelines for fair and safe play. 

  • Register as a new Owner via the “New Customer Registration” link, upload your dog’s health requirements, and call us to schedule a free behavior assessment for your pup today!!

  • Plan ahead! Behavior assessments are held at 4:30pm and 5:00pm on weeknights. We typically book out 1 to 2 weeks from the current date. All health requirements must be met for us to schedule your dog’s assessment.

Dog Training

– Philosophy:
All of our trainers use positive reinforcement, reward based training methods. We start with looking for success at a basic level and growing your dog’s skills and confidence with time and practice. Treats, praise and petting are all incorporated as rewards to keep your dog performing at their best. We feel that these methods provide long term success, foster beneficial bonding, and grow a trusting relationship as you and your dog work together!

Dog Grooming

Grooming services are currently only available for Smart Doggy Daycare and Stay & Play Overnight  Care Clients due to limited grooming staff. As always, all grooming services need to be scheduled in advance. 

We hope to extend our services to non-day care and overnight care clients again soon. We apologize for any inconvenience during this time of restricted availability.

We believe that every pet deserves a little pampering. Our experienced Groomers work with one dog at a time in a calm, quiet space. Our compassionate grooming style keeps your dog safe, comfortable and looking great each visit! As an added bonus, every dog that receives a bath with their service also gets a COMPLIMENTARY blueberry facial!!





From its very inception the Smart Doggy Day Care program at Bay View Bark was unique to all others. We keep a lower dog to staff ratio, include a private, positive reinforcement based training session for every dog each day and honor a commitment to communication with the customer. Bay View Bark’s one of a kind doggy day care program was established in April 2012 at our former location just down the street. As we have grown we have seen many changes, but these founding principles live on in our daily practices.  Our business services currently include Smart Doggy Day Care, Stay & Play Overnight Care, Dog Training Classes and Dog Grooming Services.

-Smart Doggy Day Care-

The way we include training in the routine of the dogs in our doggy day care and boarding programs truly serves the dogs, their people and us! The increased vocabulary, command recognition, response rate, confidence and communication result in improved canine behavior both at home and within our facility. 

-Stay & Play Overnight-   

In December of 2016 we moved up the block to our current location. We are now in newly remodeled facility that includes space for dog boarding – or as we like to call it “Stay & Play Overnight Care”. We have 29 clean, bright, safely designed rooms available and we include a full day of Smart Doggy Day Care for all of our  friendly social canine guests with each day of care.

-Dog Training Classes-

Our dog training classes for manners and obedience have been a main stay through the  years. Our class content and cues are fully compatible with the training received by doggy day care and boarding dogs, providing continuity for you and your dog(s). All of our trainers use positive reinforcement and reward based reinforcement methods, lots of treats, praise, toys and petting. We do not condone, use or teach aversive training methods. When we moved, we unfortunately could not keep offering agility training classes, but we have added a couple new trainers and class offerings along the way.

-Dog Grooming-

Our dog grooming team has recently grown, allowing us to get day care clients Bath Brush and More and Full Groom appointments 6 days a week. Please call in advance and remember our popular groomers book out 3-4 weeks in advance!
