It’s a routine familiar to many working parents: Everyone gets up early, and then the children go to day care while the parents go to work. But it’s not just for families with infants and toddlers anymore. In some cases, the “children” have four legs, not two. More and more pet owners are taking their beloved animals to places like Barkstown, a day care and boarding facility for pets that also offers a coffee shop for humans and other amenities.

Barkstown is one of about a dozen kennels and boarders in the Louisville area that offer day-care services. For more information, call (502) 479-8833.
