General information

All pets must be in good general health to attend and activity at Barking Oaks Pet Resort. Barking Oaks is staffed for special care and are able to handle geriatric pets.

Prior to participating in group play or Doggie Daycare, pets must be spayed or neutered, older than 4mos. and pass a social evaluation. Approved pets may have social privileges suspended if their behavior changes and they become aggressive or dominant.

Barking Oaks Pet Resort offers discounts for multiple dogs or cats, from the same family, sharing accommodations.

For the safety of all pets and visitors, customers’ pets are required to be on leash and under control (or in a carrier) at all times on the property.

We encourage you to transfer any medications from a glass container to a plastic receptacle.


You may check your pet in anytime during business hours. During peak times, some suites may not become available until 12 pm. In this case, early arrivals may be placed in another suite until their suite becomes available.


Barking Oaks Pet Resort is much like a hotel. Check-out for all guests is by 12:00 p.m., since pets arriving in the afternoon may be booked into the same suites. Any pet checked out after 12pm will be charged an additional $15.00, unless they are scheduled to do daycare grooming/bath or training.
