Central Bark (PKC Partner)

In March 2016, Central Bark got a much needed makeover. We welcomed new groomers and finished a new addition to our facility. We've updated our products, services, and now hold the work of our grooms to a higher standard to better suit our customers and their pets' needs. Located inside Hawthorne Pet Den, we are also able to provide daycare services at an additional charge. So while you are at work, at school, or running errands, your pet will be playing and having a spa day! Some of our services include, nail buffing, de-shed treatments, paw pad treatments, and much more! Here at Central Bark, we take care of dogs like they are our own. With plenty of services to choose from, we'll make sure your dog gets the care they need to be healthy and happy. Check us out on Facebook and call us to make your appointment today!

Hawthorne Pet Den (PKC Partner)

Hawthorne Pet Den offers boarding and daycare for your K9 companions. In our kennel-free environment, dogs get to enjoy a fun, safe, and healthy atmosphere while interacting with other dogs and staff. We have 3 separate enclosures inside of our building with dogs being separated by size and energy level. Dogs that have separation anxiety, kennel anxiety, or other anxieties are considerably more relaxed being able to play with friends, watch the action, or take naps rather than being in a kennel. We offer 3 different sizes of kennels for our friends that are having a sleepover. Our small breed kennels are 5'x5', our large breed kennels are 7'x4' our family or extra large breed kennels are 10'x5'. Dogs are provided with comfy blankets to sleep on, fresh water at all times, and fed according to your instructions. All kennels are swept and mopped, blankets changed, and clean bowls are provided daily. Come in for a tour of our facility today!

Dog Parks/Trails

Katie's Dog Park

The half-acre park features two separate play areas with one meant for large, active, and energetic dogs and another for smaller dogs or those that are a little more leisurely in their play. Other amenities include two water fountains, benches, a shade pergola donated by Lowe’s, and most importantly, the entire park is fenced in so dogs are free to run off leash. The park is located at 3100 Avenue of the Chiefs, next to the Pocatello Animal Shelter.

Old Town Bark Park

This 1/2 acre park is tucked into a shady corner on UP Avenue and Center Street, just west of the railroad underpass in Old Town. There are benches, a dog-friendly drinking fountain, Mutt Mit bag dispensers and a trash bin.

Bartz Field

Located on Bartz Way (behind Reed Gym on the ISU campus) next to the new Stephens Performing Arts Center, is open to off-leash use by dogs. This is an unfenced park with bag dispensers and trash cans. The University has generously opened its property to dog exercise so let's not wear out our welcome at this multi-use park - please pick up after your dog!

City Creek Management Area

These lands are primarily owned by the City of Pocatello but include private owner partnerships for access. Since they are City property, these lands technically fall within the bounds of the City leash law for parks. However, due to the impracticality of enforcing on-leash use here, the City Creek trails are treated as de facto off-leash areas. These fabulous trails are, for the most part, heavily trafficked and multi-use, so good trail etiquette is a must.

Edson Fichter Nature Area

Owned by Idaho Fish and Game, this area has become a favorite off-leash dog area due to river access and 9 acres of open space (unfenced). The trailhead is behind the Indian Hills Elementary School soccer fields. Bag dispensers and trash cans have been added - please make an extra effort to pick up after your pet here, since pet waste has also become an issue at this site.
