Barking Hound Village Westside and Barking Hound Village Buckhead, which have been operated by Bark and Board, LLC, will become Bark and Board Westside and Bark and Board Buckhead. The other five locations of Barking Hound Village will remain under the existing corporate name of Barking Hound Village.

"Having been a part of, and associated with, Barking Hound Village during the past nine years has been a terrific adventure," said Scott Powers, President of Bark and Board, LLC. "David York, owner of Barking Hound Village, is a mentor and friend who was gracious enough to offer me the chance to purchase the Westside location five years ago. Then, three years ago, Bark and Board opened our second location in Buckhead, which operated under the Barking Hound Village name."
"Scott and his company have been terrific partners these past years," added York, "and I look forward to our continuing friendship as we become friendly competitors."
