At Bark ATL, we promote cage-free.  As the weather is getting nice, don't let the indoors be your cage.  And, while you're getting out, why not take your pup with you?  Getting your dog out of the house will not only make your pet happy, but it is a great source of exercise for them. Spring is right around the corner and there are many events coming up within Atlanta for you and your dog to enjoy together. Here are a few of our favorites in the month of March:
