Luxury dog boarding in Bristol at Barkleas

It’s not always the case that people want photoshoots in the colder winter months, but when you’re a luxury boutique dog hotel it’s the perfect time to showcase your cosy indoor environment.

Formerly called White Cottage Dogs and newly rebranded as Barkleas, owner Leanne has adapted her gorgeous home in Wraxall to cater for only the most pampered of pooches.

Not only are dogs allowed on the sofa here, they’re positively encouraged to sit up there…

Leanne commissioned us to provide a varied set of images portraying the luxurious and cosy nature of her dog boarding facilities. 

Considering there is a log burning stove in each and every room, that wasn’t exactly hard to show.

Everyone is friends here, regardless of whether they’re little or large.

Being a doggy day care of course there is ample outdoor space for fun and games, alongside regular walks at nearby Leigh Woods.

When it’s time to relax there’s a bed to suit everyone’s taste.

Doggy day care is such a personal service, as any owner would want to feel comfortable leaving their beloved with someone who loves and cares for them as if they were their own. With this in mind Leanne reluctantly agreed to a photo with all 4 of her doggies.

Barkleas is such a gorgeous and welcoming environment; a home away from home. If we ever owned a dog, we know where it would go during holiday time!
