Years of experience has taught us

Do it differently

At the heart of what we love and do is our passion for truly knowing and caring for all of the puppies and dogs entrusted in our care. Each staff member approaches each day, class, group or individual with a level of love and attention akin to surrogate parent meets teacher, in a process we call the “Bonding Cycle”.

Whether having fun with dog daycare friends in our City Park or free-running with the “forest monkeys” at our Country Park, learning new things in dog & puppy day training classes or getting their brain whirring in our enrichment sessions, taking things slowly in our one-on-one de-sensitisation groups or running flat tack with a gang of furry four-legged classmates, we ensure that your gorgeous puppy or dog’s every hour, day or week is perfectly suited to their own personality and needs.

A Dedicated 2-legged Team

Our two legged team are truly a breed apart - with a diverse mix of ages and backgrounds, coupled with a depth and breadth of knowledge and experience about doggy daycare, puppy training & dog training, life enrichment and health and safety experience and certification. We share not only a common, and insatiable, adoration for our four legged friends but a mutual commitment to ensuring a quality of love and care that we are always proud of. And we know you will be too. We take it very seriously that you entrust your dogs with us and welcome any and all questions and requests you might have to ensure we are getting it just right for them and for you.

Our roll call of dogs and puppies is divided by age, size and personality and we have a dedicated roster of staff for each class enhance the bond with and experience of each dog in our care.

Whacky Woodbury

Bigger, Better, Older, Wiser – 3 big play areas dedicated to a variety of fun and games for our bigger and older dogs. The Woodbury staff have created a varied mix of activities and games in different areas of the facility at different times of the day to suit all energy and personality types of our dogs.



We get to know your dogs personality type

We get to know your dog’s personality by understanding not just their breed proclivities, but their life stage, lifestyle and history. We know their mood is as changing as ours, but what sits in all of their hearts and minds are character traits and shared behaviours. By always treating the dogs and puppies as individuals, letting them learn through socialisation, play and experiences we build a bond and understanding that is pretty special.

Just a little something else we’ve been doing for the past 10 years…


Yearly School Photos

Every year we do our very own dog School Photos - each year using the House Colours we choose a theme and get a professional photographer to catch the dogs at their best - such fun and the results are divine.


I’ve got lots of friends. I love being in

School Report Cards

To accompany each set of dog school photo's we also work long and hard to compile our yearly dog School Report Cards - and what a reception they receive!!  It is the cause of much conversation as our dog parents digest the year their furry loved one has had at Barkley Manor. We see it all from the parents; comparing dog grades with other dog parents, laughing at the antics and best known traits of their four legged family member, some marvel at their dogs achievements, some nervously laugh at their lesser grades, everyone smiles at the list of four legged friends that their dog has made, and all share their pride with everyone and anyone!

Supporting Paw Justice


Sometimes you meet people who are way beyond just 'good guys', and we have had the honour of not only meeting but supporting Craig and Shaughn, the brains and paws behind this cause! We all get frustrated by the injustices thrust upon the innocent in our modern society but these guys got angry enough to decide to affect some change. Whether signing their petition for a change in the sentencing laws for cruelty to animals or buying one of their Tshirts / DVD's to raise funds for their amazing activities you can join in their crusade - we are 100% with them and behind them and we hope you are too.

Visit them at or sign the petition next time you come to see us.

Barkley Manor Country Park

Dog Forest Adventures


On a Forest Group walk  the "Forest Monkeys"  as we affectionately call the dogs, are loaded on the School Bus and taken for a forest day trip. Being a dog monkey is about having the freedom to run, explore, sniff, chase, swim, plunge, shout with joy, jump, chase, chew, smell, hunt, amble and roll in mud.

We specialise in creating different experiences for different groups of dogs - young pups country enrichment, older and slower, hunters and gatherers, too shy for public parks - we want to celebrate your dog being themselves.

We ask that all puppies / dogs join our daycare first so we can start the Bonding process and optimise which day and group they are best suited to.

Forest Retreats - Dog Boarding


Let your dog hang out with their four legged friends on a perfect country holiday at the HOMESTEAD - a purposely designed, open plan home, staffed round the clock for the ultimate in overnight dog boarding care. No dog kennels here!

Divided into size and temperament dog groups, the overnight Forest Monkeys have fun packed days exploring their own country wonderland - with 5 fully fenced areas there is something for every dog - the Meadow for dogs that love chasing and playing tag, the Grotto for dogs that love social gatherings, the Spring for dogs that love bombing and swimming, the Verandah for sunbathing and snoozing dogs and the Dell for dogs who love hunting and snuffling all the good smells.

Dog Training Retreats

Whether topping up on some good dog manners or learning some cool new things a combination of forest retreat, day training and then a structured handover to you, is all tailored to your needs.

All dogs benefit and enjoy a refresh or adding new learning / dog training - we like to use the relaxed and positive back drop of a retreat to then add ‘lessons’ - We create programs that optimise long term success for you & your dog, by actively getting you as owners involved at the beginning and end of the retreat.

It can be a uniquely rewarding way to not only reconnect but ensure you and your puppy / dog are leading your best life together.
