“A one-of-a-kind animal funhouse,” raves USA Today, and Great Britain’s Daily Mail calls The Barkley Pet Hotel & Day Spa “the most luxurious pet hotel in the world.” With limousine transportation, gourmet meals, a full-service spa, and plenty of supervised playtime, the 32,000-square-foot resort for dogs, cats, birds, and exotic animals does not resemble a traditional kennel.
Designed in collaboration with pet-care consultants, psychologists, behaviorists, arborists, veterinarians, and old episodes of Lassie, the climate-controlled facility sports cheerful colors, plenty of skylights, and an advanced ventilation system. Tropical fish dart across tanks flanking multilevel cat condominiums where loving staff members lavish kitties with continuous attention. Dog owners can choose from a range of suites—many of which are equipped with flat-screen TVs and leather furniture—for their canine friends.
The Barkley’s cage-free doggie day camp gives pups plenty of supervised outdoor playtime. Humans can check in with their furry friends on a live, streaming webcam. The Barkley also offers professional grooming and obedience-training services, and Dr. Daniel Slaton and Dr. Steven Rosenstein at the adjacent, fully integrated Westlake Village Animal Hospital are on call 24 hours a day, seven day a week, in case of emergencies.
