  • Is in-home pet sitting not the right fit for you & your dog? You may consider utilizing our Pet Resort dog lodging service. We take dog boarding in Fargo, ND up a few notches with our indoor/outdoor cabins, luxury suites (private, themed guest room equipped with a fancy raised dog bed, TV, personal sound system, & 24/7 camera access), & enrichment exercises for your fur kid. You can add-on a grooming service from our Spa Services such as mani/pedis & a soothing exit bath.

Barks & Recreation's home pet sitting service serves the greater Fargo-Moorhead area.

We feel at ease leaving our cat & home with Barks & Rec knowing everything is in good hands.
