In-Home Pet Care

If you’re going away and have pets that need to be cared for, we’re here to help! Though Working for Wags, we also offer in-home services such as pet sitting, check-ins or playtime visits, dog walks, and more.

Working for Wags is our in-home pet-sitting and dog walking service. You don’t have to be a member of The Bark Park to hire our sitters. Our team is made up of vet techs, vet assistants, dog daycare specialists, and other animal-trained professionals in Tucson, AZ. Our dog sitters are all 18+ and go through a series of steps to ensure they are qualified to work with your pets, including basic dog care protocol, procedures, and background checks.

Dog Staycation

Give Your Dogs Their Own Little Vacation!

Going on vacation? Why not treat your dog to one, as well? Our friendly and attentive team will do everything possible to ensure your dog enjoys their home away from home experience.

Whether you need to board your dog for an overnight stay, the weekend, a holiday, or for more extended care, your dog will spend their days enjoying supervised open play and nights of restful sleep. Your pup will be tired, but happy when they go to bed. Our boarding facilities are fully-equipped to handle dogs of all shapes and sizes.

Traveling and time away from home can be stressful enough on its own, so the last thing you want is to worry about your furry friend. If you’re taking a vacation or going out of town for a quick trip, don’t stress about trying to find a friend or family member to take care of your pup! We offer safe and caring overnight dog boarding services.

Dogs of Tucson offers a variety of hotel accommodations to fit any dog size and any budget. Our Canine Companions pay attention to all the details that make your dog’s stay with us seem more like home, and we will do our best to meet any special requests that you may have.

As dog lovers ourselves, we take your dog’s care very seriously. That’s why we have some of the same Park Rufferees and team members that you see at The Bark Park also providing the boarding care. That way you and your pup already know and are comfortable with the team providing them love and care while you are away.

Member dogs will be familiar with our team from The Bark Park, which will make your dog feel comfortable and at ease staying at our facility. Our team will also have had the opportunity to learn your pup’s personality and play preferences, so you can trust they’ll be in good hands.

Doggie Daycare

The Perfect Way To Socialize Your Dog!

Many pet owners work all day, which is why there is a need for doggie daycare. Doggie daycare works a lot like daycare for children. You drop your dog off in the morning on the way to work. While you are gone, your dog will get plenty of attention and love from our Canine Companions. Your dog’s day will be filled with activities based on the curriculum set out by the daycare facility for your dog’s specific needs and temperament.

Your dog may enjoy his day by playing with other dogs, playing with people, or snuggling up on a nice bed or couch and getting loving attention. Your dog will have the chance to spend time indoors and outdoors, including the opportunity to have outside potty breaks. This is so much better than waiting all day for attention, as some dogs do for their humans.

Life can be hectic at times — we can definitely relate. Sometimes, having someone else watch your best friend for a few hours can help take some of the load off your plate. What if, at the same time, there was a way to provide your dog with some valuable physical and mental health benefits? Well, there is, and it’s doggie daycare at Dogs of Tucson.

Our daycare services are perfect for pet pawrents who work long hours or don’t have a large yard for their dogs to enjoy. We provide a safe, secure space complete with large play yards for your pup to explore.

There are many things to consider when choosing a company that will take care of your dog and all their needs. Trust is a critical factor that should be at the top of every pet pawrent’s mind.

We are passionate about providing a safe and healthy environment for dogs, and we strive to make sure their experience with us is nothing less than exceptional. Our top-notch doggie daycare facility is staffed with experienced and knowledgeable professionals who can provide your pup with the best care possible!

Daycare includes supervised fun in a friendly, safe, and sanitary place with plenty of room for dogs to spread out and play. Doggie daycare is also a great way for your dog to interact with other dogs when they can’t enjoy The Bark Park with you!

Benefits of Doggie Daycare:

  • Provides physical and mental exercise.
  • Increases socialization skills.
  • Helps with separation anxiety.
  • Eliminates boredom and mischievous activities.
  • Creates an overall happier dog.


  • $180 full day, 5 days a week.

Training & Classes

Training for YOU with your dog. Dogs of Tucson is committed to providing a well-rounded, all-inclusive experience and we believe that human training is a big part of that.

We do not cover the full spectrum of dog training sessions. However, if you are unsure where to begin or have a dog displaying specific behaviors that you need some advice on how to address, please give us a call or send us an email. We would love to chat and help you find a good fit for a trainer in the Tucson community.

The Bark Park Readiness Sessions

  • The Bark Park is not for every dog and we will be the first to tell you that. However, the positives of having a social dog vastly outweigh the negatives and its our goal that every dog who wants to enjoy our facility gets the opportunity.
  • If your dog has never socialized OR you simply want to build some confidence prior to visiting The Bark Park, our Park Readiness program is the solution for you.
  • Readiness is a bridge to help under socialized dogs become comfortable with other dogs and humans.


Why might your your dog might need this:

  • doesn’t know own size or strength
  • doesn’t know how to self regulate
  • doesn’t know how to give or receive proper corrections
  • becomes overwhelmed or overwhelms other dogs
  • fear, anxiety or stress is present when unaccompanied
  • doesn’t understand play language
  • removes stressors for canine and humans
  • investment in your dogs future; well socialized dogs lead a more stress free, fully more content life


Program highlights, begin with a private social eval (which is $25) then based on the dogs comfort level we will suggest one of the following paths.

  • Readiness Session: this gets your dog comfortable with the Rufferee team and The Bark Park. These session are required to be a minimum of twice a week.
    • 1 hour readiness session is $35
    • 1/2 hour readiness session is $25
  • Readiness Play: this is when you dog is ready to meet other dogs in a private, controlled setting. Multiple Rufferees will be present to do the introductions and encourage play.
    • 1 hour readiness play is $45
    • 1/2 hour readiness play is $35
  • Modified Doggie Daycare: this is when your dog can play with other dogs, but due to fear, anxiety, or stress they only do well with short duration of play. Depending on your dog this can be anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours of time.
    • 1/2 hour $25
    • 2 hours $50
  • Human Monitored Doggie Daycare: this is when your dog required a human to parter with them to make good choices in play. We teach them to initiate play, self regulate during play, and receive/give proper corrections.
    • $25 per hour


Reservations are required for all readiness sessions! We do charge cancellation fees for no shows. These policies can be found here.

What our clients are saying! Services

My dog loves it here and they give lots of attention to each dog. Large playrooms. I will continue to patronage. ~Linda

I have had my pup, Sandy, visit which I stayed, watching him play with other dogs there. He did quite well. The staff is incredible. They are very in tune with our dogs, the other dogs behavior esp. that my pup is small, just 12 lbs. They keep the larger dogs safely away from the “new” smaller pups. I think this is going to be a very good fit for us. Indoor playgroup, smaller group and best will be very helpful, keeping my Sandy safe from the heat of summer. ~Liz

This place is so friendly and they are very loving to my Luke and Leia. Highly recommend them!!! ~Mikie
