Barkley Pet Hotel

Pet Luxury has been taken to a new level, at the Barkley Pet Hotel in America.

Going away is always very hard for us Pet Owners, as leaving your pet behind becomes a huge mental burden and it feels like leaving your child behind.  You want them to be taken care of like you would when you are at home, but who is going to take care of them as good as you always do?  The problem is, finding places or people who offer such a service is never an easy task.  The options that most of us are exposed to is house or doggie sitters, or that dreadful thought of leaving them at the kennels. 

Barkley Pet Hotel have given some lucky dogs and cats the opportunity that most pets (and owners!) would love to go to.

Bakley Pet Hotel

These lucky pets do not only have a wonderful place to go to while mom and dad are away, they also have a ultimate luxury option to be collected by the Barkley VIP PET Limousine.  Fancy Fido indeed!


Upon arrival you are greeted by the friendly staff and after a quick check-in, the fun begins.  It looks like the meaning to Pet Friendly 'wining and dining' has been taken to a new level.  The only down side makes us wonder if they will ever want to come home after all this fun!

There is nothing more soothing than a someone special - while mom and dad are away - who can read to you a bedtime story.  Boy, do we love this hotel! Is there place for humans here?


The first thing that comes to mind while you read about this dream pet hotel, is "how much does it cost?".  It was nice to see that they are not that over-the-top expensive and that they mainly charge rates per hour, which means you can tailor make the facilities to fit your budget.
