Inside Kennels

We are excited to be the only Boarding and Day Care facility in the East Memphis area that offers In-and-Outdoor Runs for our guests! Each In-and-Outdoor kennel is equipped with a doggy door that leads to an individual yard, allowing your dog to go outside as he pleases.

For extra potty breaks or in case of an emergency, our overnight staff will be here to take care of your furry family member! Our overnight staff is also wonderful for older dogs that need a little extra TLC or dogs that exhibit anxiety while away from home.

We want to make sure your pet feels right at home while staying with us at Barks and Recreation. Because Day Care is provided for all dogs in our care, our Boarding prices are all-inclusive. Each dog that stays with us will get to participate in Day Care and group activities to ensure that all of our furry friends have a fun time! If at any time you feel like your dog should not participate in Day Care, he will be given individual playtime and taken on walks throughout the day. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to care for your pet while he is on vacation!outside North

All dogs that are Boarding with us must be checked out by 11:00 AM on his scheduled pick-up date, except Sundays when we’re open from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM.  If you would like to pick up your dog after 11:00 AM, that’s no problem! We’ll place him in his play group and you will be charged for one day of Day Care with us.
