The Barkley has a passion for exceeding expectations and strives to provide the highest level of quality and personalized service. The experienced staff at The Barkley understands that each pet has a unique personality. Therefore, we offer custom-designed activity options to meet the lifestyle needs of each pet.
Day Camp Group PlayThe Barkley provides discounted Day Camp days for its overnight guests. Day Camp is a “cage-free” environment, designed for dogs that are social with other dogs. Day Camp provides an outlet to expend excess energy, socialize, exercise and remain active. At Day Camp, there is never a dull moment and our schedule is packed with fun and activities. Separate areas cater to small and large dogs. All campers must be admitted to camp prior to check-in. Click here to read more about Day Camp.

Served with a fine, Irish linen napkin.
Pee Pee PadsThe Barkley housekeeping staff can outfit any guest room with a fresh pee pee pad for those who prefer to potty inside.
Spa VisitNo resort stay is complete without a special visit to the grooming salon and spa. The Barkley highly recommends exit baths prior to departure.
Relaxation MassageDue to the health-promoting qualities of deep-tissue massage, as well as its restorative properties, The Barkley offers pet guests private massage sessions with certified Canine Massage Therapists. Aroma-scented sessions not only comfort the patients, but also help with circulation, flexibility, stress, emotional/physical trauma, and early detections of lumps or growths.
