About Us

Bark & Play is a doggie daycare located in downtown Denver that provides daycare for your pet and also offers overnight stays. While you are away we will take great care and make it a fun time so that when you arrive your pet will be happy to see you. We also offer many items for your pet: leashes, collars and quality healthy food.

We have recently remodeled our facility to ensure the safest, cleanest and healthiest environment for your pet.  We have pet friendly, 1500 square feet of indoor play area and have a 2000 square feet of outdoor play area with toys and pools and a shade area, so the dogs can be outside (without getting overheated). We will pull down the side doors and have a covered area on cooler days. You will be amazed at how the social environment will allow your pet to get exercise and interact with others.


Big Jon aka “The Dog Father”

After 35 years in the automobile industry, 20 of which I owned Big Jon’s Auto Sales in Longmont, Colorado. I spent 5 years on the Colorado Motor Vehicle Dealer Board for the State of Colorado and 5 years as the Executive Director of the Colorado Independent Dealers Association. I am transferring my passion to the doggie day care and pet hotel business. I will be working with my daughter Kim. Our goal, quite simply is to treat your dog as family!


My passion is taking care of your pet as if they were my own. Born and raised in Colorado over 30 years ago my dream of providing care for dogs and your best friend. You will see I have a natural ability to connect with dogs. Stop in and see the commitment we have and will continue to do taking care of your dog.


After 10 years in the security field, I felt it was time to pursue an old passion for dogs. With my wife Kim, we pledge to treat your dog as family, and strive to make Bark & Play your dogs favorite home away from home.
