Play Care 

When a walk just isn’t enough…


Fully Licensed.....Currently the only day care centre in Manchester city centre - our transparent, spacious, cage-free play area is perfect for providing dogs the physical & mental stimulation they need.  As we all know they are very social creatures and the experience of spending long periods of time with others is priceless in terms of their wellbeing. With over 2000 square feet of indoor and outdoor play areas you can be assured that while you are busy with other things your dog is having fun.


At the barkside a first aid trained member of staff is always with the dogs encouraging safe and exciting play. All dogs will need to be fully up to date with the relevant vaccinations before enroling in day care, so you can rest assure your dog will be in a healthy safe environment. We also have comfy areas for dogs who like to relax. We accept big and small dogs however all dogs must pass a temprament test before being accpeted. 


The unit will be open from 8.00am -6.00pm Monday – Friday. (We offer either full or half days) We can also provide a taxi service from £2 each way (for a 3 mile radius then 50per mile after),  perfect if you start work before we open or close. We will deliver your pooch back home so when you return from work you can relax knowing that your dogs day has been filled with exciting activities, cuddles and lots of socialisation.
