$49 for a Doggie Day-Camp Package ($163 Total Value)
- Doggie day-camp evaluation; held on separate day from day-camp sessions (a $35 value)
- Two day-camp sessions (a $35 value each)
- Medical exam (a $58 value)<p>
In an initial evaluation, professional staff members observe canines’ interactions with other dogs, ensuring all campers—who must be fully vaccinated—are appropriate candidates for daycare. Evaluations take place 7 a.m.–8 a.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m.–9 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. At the cage-free day camp, dogs, which are divided into size-appropriate groups, romp over play equipment and socialize on grassy lawns as trained supervisors preside. Customers can check on their pets by logging on to the day camp’s live, streaming webcam.
During medical exams, which are conducted at Westlake Village Animal Hospital, vets screen dogs’ eyes, ears, noses, throats, mouths, teeth, hearts, lungs, skin, and neurological functioning for problems. Experienced doctors ensure dogs’ internal organs and musculoskeletal systems are healthy, and they provide owners with doggie nutritional advice and behavioral counseling.<p>
The Barkley Pet Hotel & Day Spa
“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.
