The Barkwood Inn Pet Resort: Everything Your Pet Deserves
By Shelly Aucoin
The long awaited summer vacation is finally around the corner. Your bags are packed and your tickets purchased ~ but what about your best friend? If Fluffy isn’t welcome at your destination, have no fear. Your pampered pooch can go on vacation to the Barkwood Inn Resort!
Barkwood’s newly renovated facilities offer over 7,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space at their state-of- the-art facility. Their friendly, attentive staff is on hand to make sure that your dog comes home happy and relaxed. Under 24 hour resident supervision, your pup will have his or her own luxury boarding suite ~ no cages, cubicles or chain link fences ~ complete with soothing music and flat screen televisions. Each suite can be equipped with a webcam so you can check in on your loved one and put your mind at ease.
Dog accommodations come in a variety of options ranging from Junior Suite Club Level to VIP Suite Club Level. All packages include full access to their interactive DayCamp program, comfortable bedding, soothing music and multiple potty breaks. Additional services include sky view, window view, pea stone patio, and flat screen television. Suites range in size from 4×6 to 6×9 with 8 foot ceilings and thick walls to eliminate any noise from adjacent guests. All of the suites were created with the utmost care to maximize comfort and minimize stress for your pets.
Do you have more than one dog? No problem. Your buddies can stay together in a larger suite at a discounted rate. In addition to all these luxurious comforts, a la carte selections are available throughout the stay ~ choose from private play sessions, private cuddle time, private nature walks, extra evening potty breaks, Kong toys stuffed with peanut butter, homemade frozen or baked treats, Pupcakes, and real grilled steaks!
Barkwood hasn’t forgotten our feline friends either. They offer two levels of suites in addition to a variety of la carte items. The junior suite includes private window views, window seat, soothing music and a kitty climber while the VIP offers the addition of a flat screen television and webcam. Optional treats to make your kitty purr include private play sessions, cuddle times, daily brushing, Bizzy Kitty toys with catnip, real tuna, frozen tuna pops and sardine snacks.
In addition to over night stays, The Barkwood Inn also offers half or whole day DayCamp, salon grooming, one hour playgroups, one-on-one day boarding, and an extensive variety of training classes. Do the four-legged members of your family a favor and call or visit the Inn’s website for more information.
