“Pampered Pets Beg to Stay”

at one of Montgomery’s top rated boarding facilities.

Since 2014, owner Amber Murphy has used her passion for animal care to fuel her family run business. “The Barkly Pet Retreat and Spa is a safe and fun place for your fur baby to stay while you are away or even just for a day of playtime and fun. We provide different types of unique accommodations including grass yards and a pool for doggie playtime, we also provide multiple services that are personalized for your dog.” 

The Barkly hosts our furry friends on a 7-acre lot with 7,000 feet of indoor space and a 30,000 gallon “beachfront” pool for dogs to enjoy getting their paws wet using the inclined entrance. The services offered at The Barkly don’t stop with Boarding though, with our other dog and cat service options including Daycare, Training, Grooming, and more.


Personalized Boarding and Daycare

When you leave for several days at a time, it can be a headache to figure out care for your beloved pets. When you choose the Barkly, you can feel confident that you are bringing them to an environment that couples love for animals with experienced supervision to make sure your family members are comfortable.

Every Barkly canine guest receives a minimum of 3 walks a day, customized feedings, fresh water daily, and clean, air-conditioned private rooms and suites. Have several dogs you would like to board? No problem! In fact, you can take advantage of our “same-room” discount!

The Barkly allows you to bring belongings from home, but remains stocked with raised beds, toys, blankets, and more to ensure The Barkly feels like their home away from home. Looking to board a feline friend? They offer these guests a private room in a separate building away from boarding dogs to ensure they’re happy, too!


Perhaps you have a busy schedule that leaves your best friend at home alone all day causing trouble in the form of chewed or torn up belongings. The Barkly’s Full and Half Day Camps make both you and your pet happier, letting your pup burn off some energy in their puppy playground or pool with caring staff until you’re ready to reunite. Not only does Day Camp provide them with a good distraction, it can also help to socialize your dog when you choose their Group Day Camp option.


Still Think Your Pup May Want More?
The Barkly allows for you to add on A La Carte boarding services to your pets stay, such as administering medications, extra play time and walks, treats, or even pick up and drop off services for those within a 15-mile radius. 


Professional Pet Grooming That Makes Life Easier

Their full-service dog and cat grooming salon is open to every size and breed by appointment only or as an add on to the end of their boarding or daycare. The precision and care their groomers bring helps your pet feel calm and relaxed while getting their hair done. Whether your dog is prone to chronic matting, shedding, nail growth, or any other hygienic or visual concerns, The Barkly’s knowledgeable dog & cat groomers will leave your pets looking, smelling, and feeling their best.


Do You Want the Best Out of Your Pet?

With 15+ years of dog training experience on staff, The Barkly can assist with problem behaviors such as chewing, barking, and jumping, or simply teaching your dog commands such as “sit, down, leave it, drop, come, stay, off.” Their staff prioritizes compassion and results in their private and group obedience training classes to help you achieve your behavioral improvement goals when you come for class, or add it on to their boarding stay to keep puppies or excitable pups positively stimulated.

Each “board and train” and/or “learn and play” session is paired with a free day of daycare. This creates an environment that fosters learning even for dogs that seem distracted. The Barkly Pet Retreat wants you to be able to bring the best out of your pet. Not only that, but you can even schedule one on one sessions with instructors to help your pet learn specific commands. You and the instructor will devise programs that best work for you and your pet’s needs.

A Reminder for Emergencies

The Barkly Pet Retreat is Here for You


In 2020, we have all witnessed how quickly life can change. Whether from a pandemic or a natural disaster, life can be unpredictable. It’s important to have your pet’s information ready in a safe space should you need a pet kennel. As Amber Murphy points out, “Unfortunately, it can be difficult to get shot records required to set up boarding in the midst of a hurricane. We urge you to have your pets prepared even if you don't normally use a boarding facility in the event of an emergency.”


If you do need a facility to board your pet even in uncertain circumstances, The Barkly Pet Retreat and Spa will be ready to help your furry friend feel comfortable and loved while away from you.

"I love the staff at The Barkly, and never worry about Jake, my lab, when leaving him for day care or extended stay. He absolutely loves going and is very attached to the staff. He has been going there since he was a puppy. The new owners have made many improvements. Of course, Jake's very favorite thing is the pool!"

The Barkly Rudy Tessy 5 Star Review

Rudy & Tessy

"This is my second time reviewing the Barkly because we love them so much. We drive out of our way to give them our business because our dogs love it there. When we pull up they are nothing but tail wags, and are as normal as can be when we pick them up... and we've left them there for 9 days before! Thank you Barkly!"
