Welcome to Bark Life

Bark Life Dog Walking is a registered canine services business based in Halifax, NS, that caters to adventure-loving dogs and their busy humans. We offer daily group wilderness excursions, slower-paced trail walks, and in-home boarding for friendly, family-oriented dogs.

Bark Life sets the bar when it comes to dog care in the Halifax/Sackville/Bedford West area. We take the time to get to know your dog as an individual, and focus on building a trusting, nurturing relationship using force-free training techniques and skill-building exercises during each outing or stay.

With Bark Life, your dog receives mental stimulation, physical activity, social interaction and affection on days when you can't do it all yourself. Our small groups ensure that your dog's individual needs are being met, and that they are never overcrowded. We use quiet trails away from the general public where your dog will be able to swim, explore and play in a beautiful, serene wilderness area. Additionally, you'll get a text update, photos and video clips after every excursion!

Boarding clients enjoy all the benefits of home - and more! Your pup will have access to playtime in our fully-fenced backyard, and will be taken on daily outings suited to their needs. We are a kennel/crate-free space (unless specifically requested), and we incorporate toys, enrichment activities and couch snuggles into our everyday routine. 

Bark Life Dog Walking is Canine First Aid certified, registered, insured by Profur Insurance and has over nine years of professional experience working with dogs of all age, breed and temperament

Our Services

We offer a range of services to meet the needs of every dog and their owner.

2-Hour Group Wilderness Hike

A half-day wilderness excursion for active, social dogs. Hikers are picked up, safely transported to a quiet, forested trail where they can explore and play for a minimum of two hours, then returned home. Six dogs max per hike; consistent off-leash recall skills are required.


In-Home Dog Boarding

Going on vacation? Let your dog stay with us! Our in-home dog boarding service provides a comfortable and safe environment for your dog while you're away. We treat your dog like family and make sure they get plenty of love, exercise, mental stimulation and attention. 

1-Hour Group Walk:
Small & Senior Dogs

All dogs deserve time in nature, regardless of age or size! Bark Life offers a daily afternoon outing on a quiet, flat trail specifically for dogs who prefer a more relaxed pace. Dogs over 7 years or under 35 lbs only; six dogs max. Strong recall is preferred; however, dogs may wear a leash/long line if needed.

Bark Life offers two different daily walk options to best serve the unique needs of our clients. Whether your dog is a high-energy, mid-sized adventure pup, a teeny-tiny super sniffer or a gentle giant entering their golden years, we have you covered. Dogs are placed in a walking group based on personality, skill set, ability and play style while also considering location and schedule preferences. We recommend dogs walking or hiking a minimum of 2-3 times weekly to facilitate a feeling of comfort, safety and familiarity within groups.


At Bark Life Dog Walking, we prioritize the safety and well-being of all dogs under our care. Our combination of hands-on experience, canine behaviour education and Emergency First Aid training ensures that we are equipped to handle any situation that may arise. We always hike with Emergency First Aid supplies,  and provide clean drinking water for the dogs on every hike. We have two Tractive GPS trackers available for new clients, and have CAA coverage in case of a transportation-related emergency.
