Requirements for BARK ATL’s Atlanta Cage-Free Dog Boarding and Daycare


In order to keep Bark ATL a fun and safe environment, all dogs must meet the following requirements:

1. Pass an onsite temperament evaluation

All new dogs must pass an onsite temperament evaluation prior to scheduling daycare visits. Since all dogs are off-leash and cage-free in the play areas, aggressive or toy-possessive dogs are not accepted. Temperament evaluations are conducted by appointment only. They can be scheduled any weekday preferably before 10am.

2. All dogs must be up-to-date on current vaccinations

  • DHPP
  • Rabies
  • Bordetella (yearly vaccines accepted but six month boosters encouraged)

You or your vet must email or fax proof of current vaccinations before your dog’s first day to your dog’s Bark ATL location:
