About Us Located in beautiful Arvada, Colorado

The Barking Lot is your locally owned and operated quality doggie daycare, boarding, and grooming facility. We are conveniently located minutes from beautiful Olde Town Arvada, right off 58th and Lamar (between Wadsworth and Sheridan) and are proud to offer quality and affordable services.

The Barking Lot opened its doors in 2005, originally named All Dogs Daycare. A few years later it was renamed The Barking Lot and continued to provide care for you and your canine companions. 

On October 1, 2013, The Barking Lot began a new chapter, when it came under the ownership of Paul Scanlon. Paul saw that numerous upgrades were needed to better provide a safe and fun environment for his guests, so the facility underwent an extensive remodel. Equipment was upgraded, health and safety features were added, and staffing was significantly increased.

The Barking Lot strives to provide exceptional and affordable care for its customers - both the 2-legged and 4-legged varieties. Pet parents can leave their canine companions in our care with renewed confidence.

Please stop in; take a tour, meet our team, and see how together we can maximize and strengthen the bond between pet parents and their pups.
