The Bark Knoxville

Now Open

My Curious Canine was founded with the mission to be a place where behavior and wellness come together to meet the needs of dogs and their owners. We have offered a fear-free standard for dog training, grooming, dog walking, and pet sitting for years, and now we are excited to announce our newest expansion: The Bark Knoxville. Knoxville needs a community space to bring their dogs for play and essential care.

The Bark Knoxville

The Bark is able to perform those services on a larger scale. We offer doggy daycare, an indoor and outdoor dog park, safe play spaces for dogs and an inviting beer garden for their owners where they can watch their dog have the time of their life.

The Bark is located at 601 Lamar Street near the Old City and just a short trip to downtown and the University of Tennessee.

Knoxville: A Dog Friendly City

Knoxville is one of the dog friendliest cities in America. We have one of the highest rates of dog ownership in the country and wonderful businesses and parks to enjoy; but all of Knoxville's dog parks are publicly owned and completely unregulated.

Lets be honest, public dog parks aren't always all fun and wagging tails. You never know if your dog is going to have the same play style as the other dogs there. You don't know if mean or aggressive dogs could be there. There are zero pet professionals around to notice and address negative interactions. The weather could have you dripping sweat, shivering or running back home to give your muddy dog a bath.

Indoor & Outdoor Play

Socializing is a must have part of your dog's care to ensure mental stability and happiness. Knoxville has a need for a privately owned dog park that offers indoor and outdoor play.

We require a temperament testing before admission. We are able to track incidents as they arise and prevent problem dogs from reentering our play spaces until they have completed an applicable training program and can pass temperament testing.

The Bark offers monthly and annual memberships as well as day passes in additon to in-house training services, doggy day care, and group classes.
