our dog franchise philosophy

To offer exceptional customer service where pet owners can give their pups a safe and engaging place to socialize, play, and be cool. 
No one likes a cage, so we don’t confine our pups to one at bark! bark!. We keep dogs and their owners happy with:
The right-sized facilities
High cleanliness standards
An environment where any visiting pup is comfortable, not stressed, and can play and socialize with confidence.
Real-life socialization based on temperament, not size. Our socialization philosophy brings dogs of different sizes together to foster a true pack mentality that builds structure and confidence.
Overnight accommodations that are slumber party-style (cage-free), where dogs are given their own cots, beds, and blankets in a room with other dogs and even a human to cuddle with! Animals who need more privacy can be booked into private suites with tempered glass doors, so they have their own territory but aren’t isolated.
Cool cams where pup pawrents can observe their animals enjoying themselves, playing, snoozing, and living the cool life in a worry-free environment.

meet our dynamic dog duo

Vivian Dominguez has always had a love of dogs. Right out of high school, when she’d finish her work shift, she’d do what she loved best: spend time with the dogs in her neighborhood. Through this, she saw the needs these dogs had for socialization and engaging play when their owners were away. Over time, this interaction with dogs grew into a budding business.

In 2009, Vivian teamed up with co-founder, Danielle Portillo, to solve the bored pup problem by opening the first bark! bark! location in downtown Long Beach. The business grew quickly, and in 2011, they opened their second location in Signal Hill. bark! bark! has continued to grow and become the go-to place dog owners seek out for safe, fun dog daycare and overnight hotel services.

For Vivian and Danielle, every pup who wiggles through their door becomes a new family member, and their mission is to give dogs a safe, fun place to play, learn, socialize, and get tons of cuddles and affection while their humans are working to provide their pets their best life.

Despite opening in the middle of The Great Recession, bark bark franchise has flourished, proving resilient in an ever-changing economy. Vivian’s and Danielle’s determination to provide world-class care for their furry customers is now the foundation of their plans for franchise expansion.
