Do you feel guilty leaving you dog at home while you go to work?

The Barking Zone Dog Day Care has been partying for 13 years and counting | Your FIRST all day play dog day care in Birmingham, AL!

Does your dog or puppy need to learn to socialize with other dogs? At The Barking Zone it is all day play Monday through Friday and a half day on Saturday. We are located at Caldwell Mill Animal Clinic so doctors are on site for extra safety if anything should happen while your dog is at play. This I believe is one of the most important issue for safety for your dogs stay with us.

We have over a 4000 sq ft yard which is divided for the small dogs and the big dogs. We have been in business for 13 years and let's just say we know how to let dogs party and have some fun. The day care is all outside so rain, shine hot or cold - we are out playing. We also have a roof that covers 3/4 of the yard to keep it cool and shady.

A typical day at day care follows these times:

• 8:00am - 11:30am - Play Time
• 11:30 - Bring dogs in for nap time
• 12:00pm - 1:00pm nap time
• 1:00pm - 4:30pm - Play Time
• 4:30pm - Put into assigned spots until Mom or Dad come pick them up

Our hours are 7:00am to 6:00pm.

To make it easier for you, we provide two time frames for our half day play program. You may choose to have your dog attend day care from either of the two time frames:

  • 7am - 1pm (AM play)
  • 12pm - 6pm (PM play)


Please Note: For a half day of play your dog needs to be picked up at nap time which is 12:00pm to 1:00pm.

Dogs that are boarding at Caldwell Mill Animal Clinic are welcome to play as well! Make it fun for their stay or if they are at the clinic getting a bath or vaccines - let your furry friend have a day of play as well to enjoy the day.

Day care is a confidence builder and an important part of having a dog and letting them learn to socialize. We will send you home a tired pooch. In dog training we want to mentally burn our dog energy out, but at day care we will physically burn their energy out. Your dog will have plenty of dogs to play with as well as we have a 9x18 above ground pool where they can learn to swim. We have baby pools as well for smaller dogs or just to cool off during a hot summer day!
