Rates and Services

At Bark-a-Lounge Pet Specialty Services, our goal is to provide top-notch pet care services for clients in and around North San Diego County and Silicon Valley. Our all-inclusive rates of service cover overnight boarding, dog day care, and three daily one-hour dog walks. Flat rates are customized according to your needs as well as the location where services are provided.

What to Expect

Your pet can experience a positive time during our walks, as he or she will get great exercise. In the end, he or she will be calm, relaxed, and happy. Remember, a tired dog is a happy dog!

Your furry friend will also be given treats and fresh water. If brushing is needed, that will be included as well. After each walk, we will leave notes to let you know how your dog enjoyed his or her time outside.

Important Notes

  • Pet care prices vary depending on your needs and will be discussed at your FREE consultation.
  • There is an additional charge of $10 for each visit done for all holidays.

In YOUR Home Pet Sitting

This includes 3-4 walks (or more depending on your pet’s needs) at no additional cost.

Please note that services depend on the size or breed of your dog. You may consider boarding your furry friend at our founder’s home.  Her goal is to treat your pet as she treats her own dog. Thus, you can rest assured that your animal companion will have his/her own environment and get plenty of one-on-one attention.

Food is the only thing you have to provide for your dog. Ellen will take care of play time, dog walks, and cuddle time with your best friend.

Important Notes

  • An overnight stay does not mean a 24-hour stay in your home. Special fees apply if 24-hour attendance is needed.
  • We can discuss your requirements during our free initial consultation. This way, we can ensure that we will deliver optimum care for your pet and meet your expectations.

Puppy Packages

Puppies need extra attention, love, and understanding. Ultimately, a well-trained pup is a happy pup. If you’ve consulted your trainer and found that your fur baby has passed basic obedience commands, let's work to keep those commands consistent.

Customized Rates

Visits are according to your specifications. Rates you will be charged depend on the time spent during each visit.

Depending on your location, we can stay in your home with your pet from 6:00 PM – 8:00 AM. The time allotment will include two 60-minute walks and thorough brushing. Of course, your pet will be given tender loving care all throughout the time we spend with him or her.


If you do not want to take advantage of overnight stays, we can visit your pet twice daily. Food and exercise, as well as play time, will be provided.

*If you do not require us for overnight attendance. please let us know where your pet sleeps (e.g: crate, indoors, garage, etc.)
