Day Care

Fully Licensed 5* Doggy Day Care 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.

A canine first aid trained member of staff is always on site encouraging safe and exciting play. All dogs are required to be fully up to date with the relevant vaccinations before enrolling in day care, so you can rest assure your dog will be in a healthy and safe environment. We accept big and small dogs however all dogs must pass a temperament test before being accepted. We do ask that males are neutered by 12 months and females in season cannot attend for the duration.

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 dog(s) day has been filled with exciting activities, cuddles and socialisation.

“The Barkside is such a find in the city centre, the staff are amazing and it’s obvious they love all the dogs and have their best interest in mind. Biscuit practically pulls my arm out it’s socket to get in there in the morning. Thanks for all your hard work.” – Meg
