Staying at The Barkshire


No one likes being alone — least of all dogs. Dogs left behind at home may feel abandoned. Returning to a place like The Barkshire lets them know they’re cared for and are still with family.


The comfortable and well-appointed suites we offer provide perfect accommodations for your dog’s overnight stays.


Staff members on-site 24 hours per day means support and a watchful, caring eye are available for your dog whenever necessary.


We require a veterinarian certificate showing proof of vaccinations for DHPP (distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and parainfluenza), Rabies, Bordetella, Bivalent Canine Influenza and a negative Fecal exam. Titer protection may be substituted for the distemper and parvovirus vaccinations. Dogs must be spayed or neutered after 6 months of age. Please ask for our Neuter/ Spay policy. We welcome puppies as long as they have their full round of shots.


If your dog becomes ill during their stay, we will contact you and your veterinarian immediately. In case of emergency, we will transport your dog to the nearest veterinary clinic.


THE BARKSHIRE requires that you bring in your dog’s regular food, to avoid changes in the dog’s diet. Individual meals must be packaged in zip-lock bags, and must include enough meals for the entire length of stay. No rawhides please.


Any medication your dog requires must be labeled, with dosage instructions included. A fee will apply.


Please reserve in advance with our online form. A confirmation email will be sent out once the boarding is entered in our system.

Cancellation Policy

We collect a deposit for peak boarding times at the time of reservation: 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. The deposit will be refunded if a cancellation is received 2 weeks ahead of the reserved boarding time.


All dogs will enjoy their own orthopedic elevated bed and are welcome to bring their own bedding and other familiar items to make their stay comfortable.
