• Young dogs who enjoy socializing with other dogs
• Dogs with prior daycare experience
Please be advised daycare is a very active environment and sometimes may be a difficult adjustment for dogs who have little socialization and are older. Daycare is not right for all dogs and we ask that you not take it personally if your dog is not admitted to The Barking Orange. This does not mean your dog is a bad dog. It just means this daycare center is not right for your dog. We want every dog that comes here to be happy and comfortable! Please contact us with questions.
