Daycare Packages

I remember the first time I decided to leave Patsy for daycare. I had all of these thoughts swirling through my mind…is she going to think I am abandoning her (since she was a rescue) am I an awful dog parent because I am leaving her with a stranger, etc., you get the idea… Well, let me just tell you that as soon as we got there she didn’t even look back! She was so excited to join the pack and be social that I think she had a momentary out of body experience. From that moment on I realized that for many pet parents, leaving their Four-Legged Family Member can be a stressful experience. The Star Barks Inn staff recognizes that and is professionally trained to calm you and your dog. We’ll care for your pup as if they’re our own and treat them like the really big deal they are!

When your dog visits the Inn, we will go out of our way to treat your dog to fun-filled days of safe social play with other dogs, following our pack leaders around, exercising, and of course burning off plenty of that pent-up energy.

Doggie Daycare

Pack Compatibility Auditions are by appointment only Monday - Friday. If daycare is wanted during an overnight board, the PCA must be completed PRIOR to the visit. All dogs over 7-months (male and female) must be altered. Call and we'll be happy to set up an audition for your dog. Keep in mind that our audition is not to test your dog's temperament, it is to determine whether your dog will display behaviors that are compatible with our playgroups. We use a very formal evaluation checklist to record behaviors we notice during the audition. Dogs that don't do well aren't "bad dogs" - they are simply better suited for one of our day suite options and activity packages. Just like all people don't like social events, not all dogs like daycare.

We want your dog's participation in a playgroup to be both beneficial to your dog and to our playgroups. As dogs become comfortable with their environment, their behavior can, and most likely will change. What we see today is likely going to be different from what we see 3 months from now. Most of our dismissals do not happen on audition day, rather they happen after a dog has been a member of playgroup for a while. We keep specific notes on all dogs' behaviors and will keep you notified if any problems arise. Our ultimate goal is to have the safest, happiest playgroups possible.

PCA's or Pack Compatibility Auditions cost $30.00.
