Every now and then when Alex and I get into our let's get fit phase, and like to walk the dogs down to Old Ballard. Since we like to stop off for a treat for ourselves, we figured it would only be fair if we reciprocated for the dogs. So, we started going into Bark. Darn, if you ever want to feel like a celebrity, take your dog along with you. Everytime, we get mobbed by customers and employees who want to pet our dogs and give them treats. The dogs love it. We went once without our dogs, and felt so alone. Never doing that one again here.
In all seriousness, the place is great. There's a treat display in front, where you can get your dog some baked goods. Not as good as the ones at the Three Dog Bakery, but pretty decent. Beware of anything with colored seeds because they can run off on the carpet. They also have a pretty strong collection of dog toys and such, if you want to shop for your pooch.
