I am going into the business of running a doggie day care-my best friend and I are going to build a metal structure (50'X70') with a couple doors and several windows. 
We are concerned about both internal and external barking.  Internally we need something that will keep the barking from bouncing off all the metal walls and making us deaf!  Externally, we obviously need something to keep the barking from leaving the building.
Thanks!

Oh, aren't your neighbors going to love you!! 

A flimsy metal building aint gonna block that level of noise and there's no product that you can economically apply to walls to get good levels of sound isolation.   Might as well go ahead, spend the extra dough and build a 'real' framed structure, with insulated walls and a couple layers of drywall.

Probably your cheapest alternative is headsets!  See

There really is no inexpensive way to do your project.  You can use a sound damping coating for the metal building interior - for info see  http://www.soundproofing.org/sales/liquid.htm 
And for sound absorption panels that are Class A fire rated (required for a public facility) see  http://www.soundproofing.org/sales/flameresistant.htm

I am opening a business beside a doggie daycare and will need to soundproof my space as well as hers. As it is a doggie daycare and accidents happen soundproofing the concrete floor would have to be "waterproof" as well for any accidents.  Any suggestions.
Thanks

Why would you need to soundproof the floor? is this on a second floor?
If you are concerned about the echo and reverb,then using noise absorption material on the walls and ceiling will make up for the conrete floor. What you need to remember is you need to achieve more than 40% soft surface area to see have a noticable reduction...

Hey ernest - can't you find a better way to advertise your company than posting it on every question a person has needs to solve.  How about a real answer to the concerned persons' question!!!  How does your product solve the problem under discussion?  oh, by the way, what is your "fantastic product" - a magic wand?
