The Barking Lot is a space designed for your much-loved companion. Centrally located in Victoria Street, We strive to make your lives that little bit easier and keep your dog happy in a friendly and stimulating environment while you're out and about. We've been caring for Wellington's dogs since 2013.
While your dog is with us they are our guest and we aim to provide the highest quality service to them and to you as their owner. We're all dog lovers here and we understand that each dog brings different needs. We like to see dogs leading a fulfilling life and making new friends. Here at The Barking Lot your dog's personality will shine through!
Our staff have a lot of experience and expertise and will do everything to ensure every experience your dog has with us is the best possible. Whether you're after a quality grooming service or just need somewhere for your dog to be occupied and cared for, we are never short on enthusiasm for what keeps your dog satisfied.
How We Interact With Dogs
We like to see dogs leading a fulfilling life and making new friends. Here at The Barking Lot your dog's personality will shine through because
- We encourage the stuff we like by letting the dogs know.
- We interrupt the stuff we don’t like and redirect them onto something we do like.
- If a dog isn’t happy or is overwhelmed, we will remove them from the situation.
- If a dog is too excited or is overly aroused, we will let them calm down separately.
- We DO NOT use physical corrections.
- If some dogs are not getting along, we will monitor the situation and then make a decision on the best way to solve the issue.
- We do not put our dogs in situations we know they will not do well in.
