Bark Side of the Moon is such a wonderful place to either take your dog for daycare or to board overnight.  Jeff, the owner, is very attentive, takes requests at the last minute, plays guitar for the dogs, and just an overall pleasure to do business with.


Our puppy absolutely ADORES Bark Side of the Moon. As many others have mentioned, our pup is actually excited to go visit Jeff, and is always very happy and (thankfully) very worn out after a day of playing & jamming out to Jeff's tunes at Bark Side of the Moon. We're moving away from the city soon, and SO sad to be losing this absolute gem of a place.  Although we'll be out in the suburbs, if we have to go out of town, we might just have to come back to Andersonville for boarding our dog, that's how much we love this place.

I wish there were more stars to give Jeff at Bark Side of the Moon!   I have 2 ultra-tiny Pomeranians (2 and 3 pounds), and I was very worried about leaving them with just "any old dog boarder" when we went to Mexico for a week.  Because of how quickly little dogs can go downhill if stressed out or not given enough attention, I researched a lot of places, and chose Jeff because of his Yelp reviews.

Such a great place! The owner is a very sweet and nice man! I can tell he truly loves animals. I was a bit nervous leaving my dog for the first time at Barkside of the Moon but there was no reason to worry. When I picked him up, I could tell he had a great time. Plus, this is the most inexpensive boarder I've used in the city and surrounding suburbs. It was $35 over Christmas instead of the $50 I paid last year at another boarder.
