About Courtney

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Barkley Beachside is the perfect getaway for your beloved pooch! We are located just steps from a beautiful freshwater pond and only a short walk to the beach! A stay with us includes a daily walk and plenty of playtime in our large fenced backyard!

You will sleep soundly knowing that while leaving your pet with us, they will have 24/7 supervision and will be with a host who has years of PROFESSIONAL pet care/training experience. With experience as a veterinary technician, the assistant manager of a pet boarding facility, and the trainer of many dogs in obedience, agility, and confirmation, your pets couldn't be in better hands!

We offer all types of services from boarding and daycare to grooming and training. Please inquire if interested in any of our services. Discounts for dog walking services within 1 mile of our home! Discounts are available for multiple dog families! Boarding and daycare packages also available!

The ideal guest for our family is an active one who is extremely friendly. Since we have 4 fur babies ourselves, it's imperative that any guests that stay with us get along with our resident pets. Our 'Old Man' of the house can sometimes be touchy with other intact males (but is great with all females and neutered dogs), so intact males will not be permitted. We believe that every dog is unique and we will gladly accept all breeds. However, any dog who demonstrates aggressive behavior, either towards humans or dogs is not a good fit for this family. If you are unsure of how your pet will do, please feel free to set up a meet and greet.

MULTIPLE DOG DISCOUNT: If you have more than one pet, you're in luck! The first dog will be $28/night, and each additional will be $22/night. *This excludes Holidays*

HOLIDAYS: Holiday rates for all major holidays apply. Holiday rate is $35/night, $30 for each additional dog. Holidays include Memorial Day (Friday-Monday), 4th Of July (2017: Saturday-Wednesday), Labor Day (Friday-Monday), Thanksgiving (Wednesday-Sunday), and Christmas/New Years (Dec 23-Jan 2). Custom quote required for holiday visits.

PUPPIES: Any puppies 6 months of age and under will be charged an additional $5 per night. Puppies 3 months old or less will be charged an additional $10 per night. This fee is mandatory for first time boarders, and can be waved if I deem your puppy we behaved enough after their first stay.

SIZE LIMIT: I am no longer accepting pets under 30 lbs. This is for the safety of your pet! If your pet has stayed with me before please contact me to find out if I will take them again.

BOARDING LATE PICK-UP: The nightly rate is good for a 24 hour period. If your pet(s) are not picked up within 3 hours of the time you dropped them off on the first day, you will be charged an additional $10 per dog. For example, if you drop off at 8 am on day 1, you must pick up by 11 am on the last day to avoid this charge.

DAYCARE LATE PICK-UP: The daycare rate is good for 10 hours or less. If pets are not picked up by the 11 hour mark, you will be charged an additional $5.
Daycare of 4 hours or less will receive a $5 discount.

MINIMUM STAY: During the peak season (May 1-Oct 1) I will charge a minimum of $40 for a stay. This means if you have ONE dog, staying ONE night, you will be charged $40 instead of $25. *This applies to overnight boarding only*

NO MEET & GREET REFUND POLICY: Since I require a Meet & Greet on all pets that stay with me, I have a slightly altered Refund Policy for those who are unable to do a Meet & Greet prior to their pets stay. For Out of Town Dogs, and last second local bookings, I will be enforcing a No Refund Policy once your pet has arrived. If for some reason your pet(s) cause a problem (examples listed shortly) and can't be cared for, you will not get a refund and will be responsible for finding another sitter. Some problems include: non-stop barking, severe separation anxiety, destruction of my property, and/or the inability to be crated. Generally your dog would have to do a combination of these things to actually result in me calling you to come pick up your dog. This policy is to prevent any surprises from occurring, and to ensure that I won't have any problems.

Please review my cancellation policy BEFORE booking. Since I am limited to the number of pets I am able to take at a time, I am FIRM on this policy.

I would absolutely give Courtney the highest rating possible! She was fantastic! We took a cruise and left our Golden Retriever Farley with Courtney for 11 days. This was our first experience leaving Farley and were apprehensive. After our "Meet and Greet" with Courtney and her wonderful Goldens Troy, Yeager, Fuzz and Blitz I was so happy to know I'd have no worries whatsoever....Heck, I wanted to stay and play! She has the best pet-friendly home...large couches, big sunporch, large fenced back yard and lots of doggie-love exuding from her body! She sent pictures of Farley having the time of his life and updated me through his stay. He looked so happy I was afraid he wouldn't want to come home! Courtney's experience as a vet tech is also a big plus. Farley was on medication for an ear infection which she administered daily and she flushed and cleaned his ears too. The love for dogs is so evident in Courtney's home❤️and she is such a caring and kind person. I can't recommend her enough! It's such a great feeling to know that Farley can return to this "home away from home" when we need Courtney's services again. She's the BEST!!❤️
Courtney is absolutely the most awesome person! She is a true dog lover. Very professional, yet so personable and flexible. We feel so bad about dropping off our dog late on Christmas eve. We were disorganized and running late and asked Courtney to add another night. She has been so gracious about the whole situation! We know that our dog absolutely LOVES staying with her! She was so excited to see Courtney again!
Courtney also takes the best pictures!
My senior dog, Moe, had a great time at Courtney's house and was provided lots of TLC. Moe will definitely be returning and I highly recommend this place. He had plenty of room to run around both inside and outside with a nice fenced-in yard.
