Fear and Force Free Doggy DayCare Serving South Portland and Surrounding Areas

How do you know you can trust your doggy care provider?

You go to trusted community members who have a long track record of outstanding pet care.

We've Cared for Dogs for Decades.

Britt Bolnick and Todd Sullivan, founders of The Bark Yard, have collectively been involved in dog rescue for over 20 years.
We founded Pittie Posse Rescue in 2017 and have built a community of trusted dog care professionals, team members, trainers, and folks in the vet community. 

We opened The Bark Yard to provide outstanding and trusted dog care to our community of dog owners, as well as to create a home for the various positive training missions we have dreamed of since our rescue’s inception. 

We have used our insider knowledge from the rescue and dog-care community to build our ideal doggy care environment, based on everything we’ve learned about what makes dogs happy and keeps them safe.

We Believe a Well-Trained Team is Key.

At The Bark Yard we believe that the care and development of our staff is crucial for the care your dog receives.
We were excited to create a business that cares as much for our staff as it does our clients, which means that the folks caring for your dog are well-nurtured, trained, educated, and taken care of…meaning they invest everything they can into the care of your pup as well.
Our dream is to eventually build a sanctuary for rescue dogs. The Bark Yard is part of our path to get there, and a percentage of the profit will go back into our rescue work.

We have built the dog services and support we’d want for OUR 4 rescue nutjobs, and can’t wait to care for yours!
