“We love Dirty Paws Lounge and are thankful we found it. Our dog gets the exercise she needs, the companionship of other dogs and great care from Jennifer. All we have to say at home is “Miss Jennifer” and our dog runs back and forth to the door until we leave. I have a happy and peaceful feeling every day my dog is there, knowing she is well taken care of!”

“One words describes this place. “Awesome”. My best friend can’t wait to get to the lounge and meet his other dog pals. Jennifer the owner greats us with a smile and makes sure our dog has fun while he is there. The place is roomy, clean, with things to keep the dogs busy. I would recommend this place to any of my relatives or friends. We are most glad we found Dirty Paws!”

“Our young adult Great Dane loves her play time at Barka Lounge. She comes home relaxed, happy and tired. I am so glad there is such a convenient place for her to go with a great staff that knows how to deal with her special needs. We have also boarded our dog there, and they even send you an e-mail from your pet, complete with picture. It is a great relief to know that our dog is well cared for while we are at work and can get the exercise and social interaction she needs in a safe, caring environment.”

“My husband and I have been taking our beagle-mix here for a little over a year (initially when it was Barka Lounge). He is at doggy day care at least 2-3 days per week, and we have boarded him twice. He loves it!! He always comes home happy and tired. When we turn onto Mound he starts getting excited and can’t wait to get out of the car to run inside. There is a fenced-in area to the side where the dogs play outside as well. Jenn (the owner) has been great from the beginning. She took my husband on a tour of the facility before we first brought our little guy, and introduced him slowly to the other dogs. We couldn’t ask for a better place to look after him while we’re at work!”

“I am so glad I found this place! My pup Bella LOVES it here. She knows when we are going to daycare and she gets so excited to see Jennifer and all her little puppy playmates! There is plenty of room inside and outside for my girl to run and play. She comes home tired so I don’t have to feel guilty about not taking her for a walk. I can’t recommend Dirty Paws Lounge highly enough. If you want a tired dog at the end of the day, bring them here!”

“Both me and my dog are very thankful for the Barka Lounge! I love that the dogs have so much room to run and play – they even have the option of going outside! My mutt has quite a bit of energy and whenever she comes home, she is worn out and content. The owner, Jennifer, is really sweet with the dogs and I feel at ease while I am at work knowing my dog is in good hands. I would
recommend the Barka Lounge to anyone who loves their dog!”

“This is by far my favorite of all day care facilities Rosco has played at! We have gone to Wag n Tails, Bark a Bout, Activity Center, etc! From the second you walk in the door its very personal. There arent 50 employees handling your dog, which i love! I agree with the person that posted the review in October of last year, my dog does not care for the crazy obstacles, he honestly just wants to run with the other dogs, play with toys! I found that most places were extremely costly, and I couldn’t afford to take him every week. At Dirty Paws Lounge the prices are reasonable and Rosco comes home a happy boy, and the best part of it all, he doesn’t smell like all the other dogs, he smells clean! She says she is moving locations (locally still) with a larger outdoor area for them to play in, which I think will be great! From the many experiences I have had in different locations, I would highly recommend the Dirty Paws Lounge!”

“We love the Dirty Paws Lounge, my dog, Cletus, goes every Friday. He looks forward to it. As soon as we get close he starts clawing the window to get out. It has been a great help with
socialization. He gets the best attention there and is spoiled just like at home. Jennifer is great with the dogs and the doggie parents. She greets everyone in such a friendly way and knows how to make your dog feel special every time. He plays all day, then gets to rest when he gets home and it has been such a great way for him to get extra exercise. I will continue taking him there!!”
– Wendy D.
“We love Dirty Paws and know that when Ruby is there, she exercise, love. care, and attention. She knows exactly where she is going when we pull into the driveway and pulls me all the way into the door…Jennifer helped me through the puppy stages and is such a great person. I would recommend everyone with a dog to try it out!”
– Dana Mowat
“Jennifer and her staff are fantastic and take great care of Madison, our puppy, who LOVES going to daycare! She’s always so excited on the way to the Barka Lounge and Jennifer has been able to help Madison become more socialized with the other dogs. It’s a life saver to know Madison is well taken care of during the day and enjoys her time there!”
