Services for Atlanta Dogs
Whether it’s for a night, a week, a month or more, your dog will enjoy the amenities and benefits of Piedmont Bark in Midtown Atlanta. Most boarding guests spend the day playing and interacting with dogs of similar size and temperament in one of our six spacious indoor playrooms. All dogs enjoy the human touch of our caring attendants. Each dog gets a private run or cage for sleeping and eating. Boarding dogs are taken outdoors at least three times a day for a break in routine, fresh air and to "do their business".
Since each pet is unique, we ask that you fill out our registration form and let us know any of your pet’s special needs such as required medications, special diets, exercise requirements, etc. Once we have received your registration, we verify vaccination records with your veterinarian. We require written proof of Rabies, Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvo and Bordatella (kennel cough) vaccines. Please note that many veterinarians administer the Bordatella vaccination only by request. Vaccinations must be by a licensed veterinarian and must be current 24 hours before the pet arrives. Once your pet is registered, it takes just minutes to make a reservation. All dogs must be registered before you make your first reservation.
When boarding your dog, we recommend that you bring the food your dog is used to eating so that your dog's diet is not upset while boarding with us. Also, feel free to bring your dog’s favorite treats or biscuits. We will also gladly accommodate diets that require refrigeration. If you chose not to bring your dog’s food, we will serve your dog our premium house food for a nominal charge. Please note that we cannot accept food containers made of glass or porcelain, or any material that could easily shatter. There is no need to bring your dog’s food bowl or water bowl; we have several of our own. Additionally, due to safety concerns, most toys cannot be permitted. You may bring beds or blankets for your dog, but it is not recommended that you bring anything uniquely valuable (with so many dogs around, there’s always the chance that something may get chewed!). If you have something you would like to bring that you feel would make your dog’s stay more comfortable, please feel free to call and discuss it with us. We will be happy to accommodate if we can. Our goal is to make your dog’s stay as comfortable and fun-filled as possible.
At our Midtown Atlanta location, dogs may arrive Monday through Friday from 7am to 6:30pm, on Saturday from 8am to 4pm, and from noon until 5pm on Sunday. Reservations are required, but we may be able to accommodate last minute reservations for registered dogs.
Please note: We book up quickly for all major holidays, so be sure to make your holiday reservations well in advance. We require a refundable $50 deposit to hold boarding reservations for all major holidays.

Daycare for Dogs in Atlanta
Dogs just love daycare at Piedmont Bark. With ample room to play, lots of human attention and plenty of canine companionship, it’s just the thing for the bored, stressed or lonely pet. If you work long hours, daycare benefits both you and your pet.
A typical day at Piedmont Bark starts at 7am when the dogs first arrive. They are grouped into individual playgroups according to their size and temperament and assigned to one of our six indoor play areas. Each playroom is a bright and cheery park-like setting, with plenty of natural and artificial light. The floor is made of reinforced concrete and has built in-drains to facilitate rapid cleanup.
All dogs play until mid-morning, at which time they are walked outside, then returned to the playroom to romp and play until nap time. All dogs receive a brief scheduled nap time based on time of arrival and health needs at some point during the middle of the day. This gives them a chance to relax and drink some water after a rambunctious fun-filled morning. Feel free to bring lunch or a snack for your dog to be given during this time. After their nap, dogs remain running in the playroom, with the exception of potty breaks, until you pick them up.*
We ask that you fill out our registration form and let us know any of your pet’s special needs such as required medications, exercise requirements, etc., so that we may give your family member the individual attention they require. Once we have received your registration, we verify vaccination records with your veterinarian. We require written proof of Rabies, Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvo and Bordatella (kennel cough) vaccines. Please note that many veterinarians administer the Bordatella vaccination only by request. Vaccinations must be by a licensed veterinarian and must be current 24 hours before the pet arrives. Once your pet is registered, it takes just minutes to make a reservation.
* After Hours Pick-Ups: If you are unable to pick up your dog before closing time, you may notify us at 404-873-5400 to make arrangements for a friend or relative to pick up for you, or to make boarding arrangements for the night. After hours pick-ups may be possible depending on staff availability for a nominal charge of $35 if advance notice is given. If you forget to call us, you can still feel comfortable that your dog will be well taken care of and will receive plenty of bedding, food, and water for the night.

Dog Grooming in Atlanta
The Piedmont BARK Groom Shop offers professional Dog Bathing and Grooming Services seven days a week. Bathing and Grooming is available by appointment only, though we may sometimes be able to accommodate walk-ins for Baths. Drop-off time is 8AM-10AM Mon-Sat, and 12PM-1PM on Sunday. At drop-off, you can either specify a pick-up time (the earliest we can guarantee is 4pm Mon-Sat, and 6pm on Sun), or simply request that we call you as soon as your dog is ready.
Please note: It usually takes 3-6 hours to do a complete bath and/or groom for a dog, though it may take longer depending on the dog’s size, the type of and condition of the coat, and the specific services needed. For clients in a hurry, we are happy to accommodate “Express In-And-Out Grooming” (availability permitting) for an additional cost of $25.
Piedmont BARK Groom Shop Pricing
Please note: The following prices are estimates only. Pricing may vary depending on the amount of time and effort involved in meeting your dog’s individual needs. For a more accurate estimate, please ask to speak with one of our professional groomers at the time of drop-off, or stop by for a visit so the groomer can get a good look at your dog and discuss what options are available to you. Note: for dogs with health conditions, behavioral issues, or especially matted/tangled fur, grooming options may be limited. Your dog’s health and safety will always be our top priority.
