Downtown Atlanta’s Premier Dog Day Care, Dog Boarding and Grooming

Bark ATL is Atlanta's premier retreat for dog daycare and cage free boarding. With small play groups and 24 hour on-site Bark ATL staff, your dog will make friends playing all day at our fun-filled oasis, then enjoy a cage-free slumber party at night with furry friends. We also offer baths and nail trims so your loved one can come home feeling his or her best after being pampered by the wonderful Bark ATL staff!

Our Downtown location offers 3,000 square feet of play space—with three playrooms and an outdoor area—where dogs can play in smaller groups than in most dog day care environments. Each playroom is equipped with a window to provide unobstructed views of your precious pooch at all times, and rubber flooring is installed throughout the facility so dogs can play (and play hard!) with less physical impact.

Truly Cage-Free

Bark ATL is a dog resort where cage free truly means cage free. Your dog will feel at home—or on vacation— without cages, even while boarding. Our play areas are split between small and large dogs, and are monitored by dog behavior specialists at all times to facilitate healthy social interactions, human contact, and lots of love!

Each dog first goes through a temperament test to check if a multiple dog cage-free environment is the right fit, and we have round the clock live webcam viewing to give you peace of mind when you see your fur baby having a fun time playing with other dogs and getting loved on by our staff.


Convenience is important to Atlantans, as we are one of the busiest commuter cities in the country! Bark ATL is centrally located and convenient to Midtown, West Midtown, Virginia Highlands, Poncey-Highland, O4W, Inman Park, Grant Park, and the up-and-coming trendy SONO neighborhood. We’re easy to access from I-75/85 and just a hop, skip and a bark from Downtown. Hope to see you soon!
