Free Play Daycare
Both our Maxie and Shepherd locations offer our free play off leash program. This program has three different daily groups for your pup to participate and lots of room to explore. These three groups are separated by size, temperament, energy levels, and play styles. This platform allows dogs to roam, play, and rest as they see fit in a larger pack of dogs than our academy program. Dogs that are able to self-regulate their activities are best suited and get the most out of this program. Daily health checks are done twice a day by pet professionals extensively trained in body language. These pups also have unlimited access to our many amenities including cold plates, misters, pools, and bubble cannons! Check out more about our amenities here! You can watch our pups playing in free play daycare here! Dogs interested in this program must meet our requirements.

Is it really doggy daycare without a splashpad? The splash pads were built and designed in-house and are always a big hit with our pups and employees! Be sure to check out the cameras to see how much fun everyone has playing with our splash pads!
Our first cold plate began as an experiment. We wanted to offer an effective way to cool off the dogs that emulated something they enjoy doing on a warm day - relaxing on the cold bathroom floor. After some trial and error we've finally created this masterpiece! The refrigeration is underground and we've added a canopy with a misting system! Park members will find easier access to the misting timer and some USB outlets on the benches to charge your phones as well. We are so lucky to do
It's always a party in daycare! It was obvious to us that our daycare dogs loved bubbles. After some time wondered how we could make it even more fun. Regular bubble machines wouldn't cut it, so we designed and created a bubble cannon!! The bubble solution is non toxic and dog safe. The daycare pups love playing with the cannon and come running whenever they hear the horn. We can always guarantee that anyone driving down Durham or Shepherd always smile when they see how much fun the cannon
At both our Maxie and Shepherd locations, we have four different groups your pup can join. Each of these groups are determined by size and temperament. We have two larger dog groups, a small dog group, and our enrichment group! We are very proud to say we know each dog individually and consider they play styles and personalities when we place them in a group!
Houston Bark Park and Daycare was established by animal lovers and advocates. The design of our buildings, outdoor play areas, and cold plates were all meticulously designed and fabricated by the owners personally.
