Our Mission Statement


The Barking Lot Dog Day Care recognises that your dog isn’t simply a pet but is considered as being an integral part of your family. We therefore strive to provide a healthy and safe recreational environment for your dog which meets both their physical and emotional needs.

Our Core Values


We Care

We care about dogs; their safety, health and general well-being are our highest priority. We care about our dogs’ people; we strive to provide superior customer service with each and every interaction. We care about our team; we aim to make our work environment purposeful, meaningful, supportive and rewarding.

We Are Safe

The Safety of all dogs entrusted in our care, and the team that supervises them, is our highest priority

We Are Flexible

We are flexible with dogs; our canine friends are living beings with changing needs that can sometimes be unpredictable. We are flexible with our customers; their convenience, requests and concerns are always considered. We are flexible with our team; scheduling needs are accommodated whenever possible and the team interacts to support each other’s needs as such.

We Are Appreciative

We are appreciate of our patrons; we know that being entrusted with the care of four-legged family members is serious business, and we are grateful for the opportunity to do so.

We Are Forward Thinking

We make every effort to improve and grow daily, continually learning and applying best practices from the constant interactions with the dogs. We aim to send home a dog improved in both temperament and behaviour at the end of each visit. We expect our team to work harder every day, being receptive to new ideas.

We Are Positive

We see the best in every situation. We look at challenges as opportunities. We are “can-do” people.
