What does a typical day look like at The Balanced Bark?

Drop-off time is from 6:30am until 10:00am. We start the day with our first on-leash potty break around 9:00 AM and follow this with on-leash pack walks around the neighbourhood (lasting from 30 min – 1 hr depending on weather and your dog’s physical needs). Once our walks are finished, it’s on to the playtime! Our guests are free to find a buddy for some wrestling or for some well-deserved nap-time, as well as participate in some fun activities like treat time, bubble time, toy time, and much more!


Second on-leash potty break happens around 12 noon, followed by our final on-leash potty break at 2:30pm. Pick-up time usually starts around 3:30pm, and ends at our closing time of 7pm, bringing our fun filled daycare day to an end.
