It's clean, good location, very friendly staff. I wish my dog could talk to find out if he likes it there:) It would be nice to get some kind of report and/or verbal feedback from the staff person most often with him. I really needed to …

Thank you, Ginny! We charge the late fee since we charge by the night (rather than per day like most of the others in the area) and this should have been in the confirmation email your received for your stay. We're happy to refund the one night free stay for new clients (email us at info@canalbark.com). You are always welcome to call or email during his stay for updates and to talk with the front desk staff at drop off or pick up. We look forward to seeing you again!

I have only left my 8-year-old girl at the kennel a couple of times, so needless to say I was really worried and hesitant to leave her this trip. I felt some better after speaking with them when I called for a reservation. The final thing …

Our cat Mister Smith has never complained about staying with Canal Bark. He is a pretty mellow guy, except when taken in the car and then he sings like Bob Dylan. This time after picking him up from CB he was a quiet, very calm and almost …

We learned in the afternoon that a roofing crew would start on our house the next morning...which would drive our dog crazy! Our regular dog sitter couldn’t take Heidi. I called Canal Bark and they had a spot for her. Paperwork was emailed …

Our dog Barney absolutely loves going to daycare. As soon as we turn onto Michigan Street he perks up & begs. At the end of the day he is always in a good mood & tired. He loves the staff & all of his canine buddies. Sorry to hear that the …

We've had nothing but great experiences with Canal Bark. We have used them three times so far for our black lab mix, Pepper, and she loves it there. She has a bit of separation anxiety, but she runs right in to play!

Thank you so much for your kind review! It has sincerely been our pleasure getting to know Pepper and take care of her. She has warmed up to us a quite a bit and we look forward to the next time she stays with us 🙂

I can't say enough about Canal Bark. We've been bringing our pup here for about a year now. She's a great dog but is little timid to new people. That never deterred the staff at Canal Bark. They took her in with open arms, understood her …
