The Programs

Baltimore Bark House has programs for your dog to choose from whether they want to socialize with other dogs or only humans or whether they are here to train or just relax overnight. All our programs are led by trained staff and focus on purposeful play and rest to ensure your dog has a well-balanced day.

The day’s activities include Purposeful Play, Enrichment Activities, Physical Activities, and Rest.


Vaccinations – Rabies are required for all services.  Bordetella, Distemper Combo, and Leptospirosis are required for Boarding and Daycare/Day Stay. Influenza is highly recommended if available at your local veterinarian office.

Breed/Size – There are no breed or size restrictions. 

Altered | Spayed/Neutered – Dogs may join our boarding program intact or altered as long as not in heat. Dogs delaying alteration for medical reasons may join socialization programs with behavioral evaluation. 

Behavioral – Our programs are inclusive of dogs that require more attention to acclimate and adjust to new people or new dogs. Dogs must be able to be safely placed in a kennel suite and put on a lead to be walked.

The programs may not be a good fit for dogs that are highly dog reactive or stressed by being in a kennel for short amounts of time.

Purposeful Play & Enrichment Activities

Purposeful play is play-based training that challenges a dog to learn while engaging mentally and physically in a positive and productive environment. The purposeful play incorporates enrichment activities and staff games while your dog socializes and plays individually or in groups.

Rest is important to achieve a positive experience for your dog. Rest periods are needed for optimal learning when training and to avoid overstimulation, stress, and injuries. To ensure their comfort and safety during rest, we invest in quality kennels of varying sizes with raised beds and privacy panels.
