what our clients are saying…
We can’t recommend this place highly enough! We have a Border Collie, so she always has tons of energy to spare. We’ve been bringing her here twice a week, every week, since she was 6 months old (she’s now going on 6 years!). She basically grew up with the staff here at Opportunity Barks and she is always thrilled to be dropped off. Don’t hesitate to give this place a try, your dog will go home happy (and tired!).

This is an excellent place to take your beloved dogs, have been taking my two male cocker spaniels here for over six years usually one day a week, but if something happens where they will be safer at Opportunity Barks, like when we were having a roof put on, it was a God send. Hugs to Great People. Recommend them all the time!

Service Above and Beyond
Just wanted you to know how much we appreciated your fine service while we were on vacation and our beloved dog, Pearl, was being boarded at Opportunity Barks. We all knew Pearl’s eye issue could be a problem while we were gone, as the initial surgery was fairly recently completed. But we felt we had to leave on vacation as our travel plans and prepayment had been in place for several months.
We were not surprised to get the phone call that you had taken Pearl to our vet’s office because her eye issue had erupted. We certainly appreciated your willingness to take her back to your facility and isolate her, and then take her back to the vet the next morning for surgery, and then go back and pick her up and once again watch over her carefully until we arrived home two days later. And then you presented us with an adjusted bill when we got back, backing out charges for the day she spent in surgery and recovery. Actually we were more than appreciative, we were astounded.
Thank you for your fine service and care for the dogs in your care. Bravo!
Needless to say we are big fans of Opportunity Barks as an excellent source of dog day care and boarding in the Eugene Springfield area.

We Love It!
And Lucy and Leonard love it more. We drop them off and they don’t think about saying bye! But best of all, we don’t worry about them and we know they’re being loved on and are taken care of.

Services for El Rico
Carol and Sonya at Opportunity Barks are among Rico’s best friends. I appreciate the kind attention that you give to Rico when he is in your care. You have given me confidence that he will be well taken care of during the several times that I have boarded him. I appreciate the updates on his activities when I have checked in during my travels. Rico also loves the doggy daycare program that you provide. I love that he gets to run and exhaust his energy in a large fenced grass field with his doggy friends. Thank you for the love that you show to all your doggy guests.

Gibson – One Happy Dog!
We just wanted to tell you what fun Gibson had staying with you this week. It was wonderful to go away knowing that not only would he be well-cared for but that he would be loved and nurtured as well. The kids were so worried about being away from him but they have said many times to me that they can tell he had a good time with you! We had a great mini-vacation and it was even more fun because we knew Gibson was in the best of hands. Thank you for showering him with love and affection. You are the best!

She loved it!
I met a couple of wonderful women at the dog park a few months ago who were opening a daycare/boarding place for dogs. I have taken my dog there three times – to check it out, to play, and to board overnight. She loved it, and for the first time, I felt I didn’t have to worry about whether she was safe, well cared for, and HAPPY while I was away. She mopes at home if she is left behind for a couple of hours, so I was concerned.
There was no need! Opportunity Barks, in Pleasant Hill is a great place, and I’d recommend it to anyone who is looking for an absolutely great place to board their dog while they are out of town.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Kenzie thanks you and we thank you for all your love, dedication and care. You both are incredible and please know that you are so appreciated. It takes special individuals to understand the love for another person’s pet and you deserve the “Academy Award” for Best Animal Provider, Love of Animals and Insight to their Needs. Please take a bow. You have no idea how much it meant to me that Kenzie was with both of you. Kenzie knows how much you love her and so do I. Again thank you sooooooo much!
Cathy Buck, Vida, OR
I searched areas from Monroe to Pleasant Hill for the best place to entrust the care and training of my precious Yorkie, Sadie Sue. I wanted a secure place; it needed to be very clean and well-staffed. I wanted a place for Sadie Sue to have and to have fun, with a focus on training. I found that and so much more at Opportunity Barks!
Carol continues to help me become a better dog owner through bi-monthly private lessons…. I appreciate how patient Carol is when teaching me to be the one in control and not Sadie Sue.
It warms my heart to watch Sadie’s excitement when she sees the staff and to see the joy in the faces of the staff when they see her. It is definitely worth the drive to Pleasant Hill for Sadie Sue’s doggie play days. Opportunity Barks is professionally-run but based in pure love for the animals. It takes special individuals to do this type of work. I don’t have any worries about whether Sadie Sue is safe, well cared for, and happy while she is away from me. Carol and her staff deserve a standing ovation for a job well done
