Our Story

In 2011, Christine graduated college and got her first dog, Izzy. Izzy is how she discovered her passion for therapy work and her natural ability to train and understand dogs. She then went on to apprentice with a well-known trainer and started to turn her hobby of training and caring for animals into a career. After only focusing on Puppy Training and Development the first few years, she then saw a need for quality pet care in and around the King of Prussia, PA area. She became excited about the idea of creating a safe, healthy and fun facility for dogs to enjoy that truly has the dog’s well-being in mind. The idea grew to include enriching dog’s lives every day by offering outstanding lodging, playtime for socialization, training for good behavior as well as grooming.

Our Philosophy

Most importantly, you’ll find peace of mind knowing that our highly trained caring team understands the love and affection you and your pets bring to each other, and that we will treat them like the family members they are while they’re here with us.


BARK U’s difference is its people. We’ve assembled an amazing team of animal lovers who are trained in animal behavior, play management, socialization and pet safety, all to ensure the health and happiness of our guests. The most important quality our team shares is its love of animals. With that strong bond in common, we go above and beyond to care for your pet every day.
