I adopted my two kitten from Bark Avenue for $25 each. They threw in the first shot and the spaying. I didn't end up getting them spayed here because they wanted to keep them overnight but I would certainly recommend adopting from here.

I just took my puppy for a groom...and they shaved him completely! He has been moping around like a sad depressed dog for almost a week. Has anyone else had this problem? Also I;ve spoken to people who pick up their dogs from day care and they are super hyper from being locked up all day!! I've had much better experience at other dog groomers.....more affordable too. I agree with another review...the 5 star reviews are FAKE..it couldn't be more obvious.....sorry mgmt.....you're trying, but not fooling anyone with an average IQ. People who run these kind of places should hire more experienced staff, from word of mouth, it seems you have a lot of work to do:(

i normally dont write online reviews. i have been taking my chihuahua mix to b.a. for daycare and boarding for over a year at their old address and I now take cHico to their downtown location. he gets picked up and dropped off every weekday unless i work from home. i have never had anything but a wonderful experience with these dog people and i like that a portion of the proceeds goes to help homeless animals. im writing this because its really offensive what some of these people are saying and they deserve to be defended. im sure everyone takes these reviews with a grain of salt because really, who are the sorts of people that write reviews? are you actually claiming that they sold your dog and then gave you the proceeds? these are dog people in the truest sense of the term. Chico wontt go anywhere else.

Pros: Good people that care about dogs

Cons: Occasionally the grooming gets booked up

After been taking my small dog to bark ave for groomig several times I decided to leave my best friend for a long weekend, on the third day this people coll me to tell me terrible news """they lost my dog""" the person on charge told me that my dog ''ran away'', how a ''''professional dog care specialist'''' could lost a dog?????
after two weeks of pretending search they reimburse the ammount i had pay for my best friend (they want to give me a dog from the shelter) but the point is that how can you replace a man best friend? what do i tell my three kids 13, 9 and 7 years old that grew together with our beloved dog?how a professional staff could loose any pet? the only explanation that i could came up is that after watching the people that works there either they sold my dog or he was very bad hurt by a larger dog.
BE CAREFULL WHEN YOU LEAVE YOUR DOG HERE ask a lot af questions, aks for a tour of the place

I looked up this place after having a bad experience (very uneducated staff) & was surprised to see it was almost rated a 5 star!! After further inspection it made sense! All positive reviews are posted by OWNERS melaniepozez jayblumberg jasonblumberg. What frauds! I knew something didn't sit right, I am sure the other positive posts are others with close relations to these people! This should be a RED FLAG to all those considering boarding their dog at Bark Ave.

Boarding is very critical because your leaving your loved puppy or kitten in the hands of strangers. However at Bark Ave your pet gets the best service and best handlers. The kennel has weekly/holiday themes to dress up your pets for all occasions of fun. You pay top dollar but rest assured that your pet will enjoy his or her stay there. But if your still worried then pick up the phone or even connect online to see your pet for yourself through their web cam.

We saw that BarkAve was "voted number 1" but our experience was the opposite. We went to the BarkAve because it was "cage free". But when we went to pick up our dog, he was either caged or put in an office. I rarely saw anyone play with the dogs, much less supervise them. Most of the time, there was only one person working. When we asked why the dogs were not playing in the open rooms, we got various answers- remodeling, cleaning, getting ready for a meeting which all required that the main playroom be emptied. I was not quite satisfied with the answers so we found another cage free location that was really cage free, where the staff played and paid attention to the dogs and a webcam that proved it. For less money than at BarkAve, you can find a place that is open longer (including weekends), and cares for your dog properly.

I returned to pick my dog up after four days of boarding, the first thing I saw was that the main room... the main room where the dogs play... was open and under massive construction with sawdust all over the floor, construction supplies everywhere, and not a dog in sight. It was not like that when I dropped my dog off. If this room is under construction, where do the dogs play? I was never given a tour of any other play area. My dog was brought to me by the same girl who was there when I dropped off. Another employee was cleaning, another was decorating, and another was standing in the main room that was under construction. Who was with the dogs?

When I saw my dog, she had DEEP, FRESH, BLOODY GASHES on her nose. I was told these were scratches gotten from roughhousing with a r@t terrier. Now... I've seen my dog play before. We go to the dog park all the time. Whenever it gets too rough she yipes in a high pitched voice and tries to get away. She never ends up bloody. These gashes, after closer inspection, look like she put her nose through a cage and was bitten, yanking her nose away, the teeth causing the deep scratching. I'm no forensic scientist or anything, but it seems pretty obvious. When dogs nip at each other, it's usually around the ears and neck area, not nose first. Nose first is aggression. If they would have been honest with me I might actually have understood.

To top it all off. Her bed, which I was told I could bring and was hoping it would make her feel more at home, was almost NOT given back to me, I had to ask for it, and then I noticed that it was as sparkling clean as the day I brought it in. There was not a dog hair or a dirty paw print on it. She clearly did not sleep on it. So where and what did she sleep on? Why tell me I could bring a bed if they weren't going to let her use it? I do not understand all the good reviews of this place. Are they from employees?

Most day care and boarding facilities ignore cats. Bark Avenue not only welcomed mine but the care offered was incredible. Dawn, the in house cat expert provided such love it brought tears to my eyes. This is my only destination!

Pros: The best place for cats in town

Cons: can't think of any

It took about 30 seconds to realize how much the team at Bark Avenue loved my pup. When I returned after a week away my pup literally refused to leave. When Melissa, the director walked us out to my car and gave him a kiss I became a loyal client for life!

Bark Avenue defines convenience. Everything I need for my dogs is here. The facility is great. The trainer is great. The groomer is great. The fact that I have to go nowhere else is great. The staff takes care of my guys like their own.

The staff was unbelievable. The facility was designed with dog lovers in mind. Within a minute of my dog's arrival he was receiving his morning belly rubs. The training my puppy received turned him from a monster to love pie. The free pick up and delivery allows me to conduct my work schedule as I must. Overall Bark Avenue is an 11 on a 10 scale!

Bark Avenue is the ultimate piece of mind for a nervous parent like me. They treat both my dogs like loving family. The quality of care the staff offers is fabulous. The fact that they pick up and deliver makes life a piece of cake.

This place is great! They come directly to me and get my beloved..take her to play all day and then deliver her back! The staff is extremely courteous and take wonderful care of the dogs - they are in such good care. Even if you don't live downtown - it's still convenient and better than the others!

This review is based on one day of day care.
The staff wouldn't let me look around before I left my dog. There only was one person on duty in a room full of dogs, and no one was playing with or working with the dogs. The worst thing I saw was that staff used a spray bottle, and they sprayed dogs in the face with water for barking or for seeking affection or attention from staff. When I arrived to pick up my dog, well before closing, there only was one person present, and my dog was crated/caged. I wonder how long he had been crated/caged.
I didn't think the space was sufficient for the number of dogs present that day .
I much prefer the professionals at WagVille on San Fernando Road.

PROS: The staff is nice to people, and they did give my dog medicine.
CONS: The staff did not seem very attentive to the dogs.

Bark Avenue is an absolutely wonderful place for you pooch or feline to spend a day. I've had the pleasure or should I say my little guy "Johhny" has had the pleasure of spending fun filled days at Bark Avenue. They have an excellent staff of caring and attentive people and I commend their dedication to the animals in their care. I have regularly used the daycare and boarding and I feel very relieved in knowing that when I have to leave him he gets excellent attention and care. Kodos to Melissa and the entire group for the wonderful work they do. Top drawer.

Talk about a great place to bring your dogs and cats! Bark Avenue is a new place in downtown L.A. to bring your pets for boarding, grooming, supplies, etc. The staff there is very friendly and attentive. The doggy daycare is designed with the pets in mind with a play pen and handlers ready to give them attention. I think that they even have a doggy pick up service if you want to have your dog picked up from your home to be groomed, etc. They really try to make things convenient for the client. I totally recommend Bark Avenue for all of your dog and cat needs.
