Centrally Located to Serve All of Pinellas County:

Barks and Recreation is located at 8486 Seminole Blvd, Seminole Florida.  Furthermore we are centrally located to service all of Pinellas County’s Dog Daycare needs. Including: Seminole, Clearwater, Largo, St.Petersburg, Pinellas Park, Gulfport, St.Pete Beach, Treasure Island, Madeira Beach, Redington Beach, Indian Shores & Clearwater Beach.

A Fun Place To Run & Play All Day!

Our Dog Daycare is set up with your fur babies safety and fun in mind! As a result we have a 5000 square foot play yard that we call “Shady Oaks” because it’s surrounded by towering oak trees! These trees keep our play yard shaded throughout the day as the Florida sun heats up! However your pups are not outside all day as we rotate our play groups in and out throughout the day. Our rotations take place on an hourly/30 minute basis (dependent upon the weather).

Smaller Groups = More One on One Attention

The Barks & Rec facility is small in comparison to other facilities in Pinellas County. However a small facility means we can keep our groups small to help foster a more personal environment where we can give each dog attention, love, and play. Our groups are kept at a 10 to 1 ratio whether they are inside or outside. That means 10 dogs for every 1 staff member. Therefore, when you drop your fur baby off at Dog Daycare they receive the same love and attention that they would receive at home. We treat each and every pup like they are part of our family.

As Your Dog Daycare

Barks & Recreation is a company founded on the love of animals. Because of this, we have designed our Dog Daycare Facility to provide the best care for your fur babies.

  • Our passion for animals goes beyond the work place and into volunteer efforts. We are a family of pet lovers that want to give back to charities and support local shelters through fund raising and awareness. Consequently our main charity is Pet Pal Animal Shelter and we send the mobile grooming van to groom dogs waiting for adoption.
  • We don’t overbook our daycare! We have self imposed limits on both the amount of dogs we have in the facility on any given day, and on the amount of dogs in each group with our staff. Therefore giving us the time to spend one on one with each and every dog to give them plenty of love, play, and attention!
  • We have over 5000 Square Feet of Outdoor Play Space! Our Shady Oaks Play Yard is right outside our back door and the dogs LOVE IT! It boasts brand new turf which is AMAZING for pets for a few reasons: There is no dirt or mud to roll around in or dig through. Consequently, there are also no fleas, ticks, or ants because they can’t live in the turf!
  • We have also spent extensive time in training all of our staff members in K9 CPR/First Aid and Basic Dog Handling Skills, taught by our Pet Tech Certified, Instructor Jon Anderson. Our loving and well trained groomers will make sure your fur baby is safe and comfortable at all times!

5 Reasons Why Socialization Is So Important For Your Dog!

5 Reasons Why Socialization Is So Important For Your Dog

With babies, human interaction is crucial in creating mental and emotional well being. In dogs, socialization is crucial in creating mental and emotional well being! Therefore Dogs that are socialized from a young age with other dogs (in a safe and supervised environment) are proven to be less anxious, less aggressive and more obedient throughout their lives. Attending Doggy Daycare is also great for helping a puppy get potty trained and break bad habits like chewing by expending all of that pent up puppy energy!
