For $10, today's side deal gets you one day of pet-sitting services from Barkalounge Doggy Daycare (a $25 value). Barkalounge Doggy Daycare is a 4,800-square-foot facility that specializes in high-quality daytime pup care with comfortable amenities. Your Groupon gets you one full day (M–F, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.) of cage-free, constantly supervised care for your favorite canine (you can purchase multiple Groupons, but you can only use one Groupon per dog).
At Barkalounge Doggy Daycare, dogs are broken up into small playgroups (typically 12 dogs) based on temperament and interaction. The daytime dog-sitters provide year-round indoor exercise, healthy treats, positive socialization, and plenty of attention. After an initial screening to approve your dog's social skills toward others, you can leave knowing your loyal companion is in good hands. Every staff member is required to be certified by the American Red Cross in canine CPR and first aid, and all dogs older than six months of age must be spayed or neutered to avoid surprise puppies. You must provide evidence of up-to-date vaccinations before you can drop off your pooch. Call ahead to schedule your dog's visit; dates are subject to availability.
This Groupon is for new Barkalounge Doggy Daycare customers only.
Barkalounge Doggy Daycare won the Indy Tail's Readers Choice Award for Best Trainer and was named a favorite Overnight Boarding/Day Care. It was ranked in the top five by CityVoters for Best Pet Services in 2007. The doggy daycare has also been featured in Indianapolis Monthly:
- Here, dogs hang out on the center's daybeds and sofas inside a 4,800-square-foot cage-free facility on the city's southeast side. And thanks to the doggy cams installed in each playroom, owners can see what their pups are up to while they're apart. – Indianapolis Monthly
Shannon Walters opened Dog'on Salon to give dogs a safe and fun home away from home. To make that possible, she assembled a staff trained in the ways of canines to run her indoor-outdoor facility. This experienced group evaluates pups based on energy levels, age, and size before dividing them up into appropriate play groups. When they aren't tending to pets, the team cares for shelter dogs looking for a place to hang their hats, even on the rare occasion they're not wearing one. In addition to daycare and pet boarding, Shannon's team also grooms dogs, finishing each session with a bow or a bandana.
