Our Mission

Our passion for dogs provides an exceptional experience; physical exercise, fun with friends, relaxation, or play in our indoor and outdoor areas ensure your dog loves it here and cannot wait to come back.

The Founder

Rita Dunker founded The Barkshire to provide a loving and caring environment for dogs that integrated elements of a children’s kindergarten class.

Dogs of The Barkshire enjoy:

  • Group play and opportunities to develop social skills
  • Plenty of exercise throughout the day
  • A safe and carefully designed environment
  • The Barkshire separates dogs by size and temperament (geriatric and shy dogs receive special attention)

Each member of The Barkshire team shares the same philosophy: our dog guests deserve a level of affection matched only by their full-time family.
