Welcome to Barkdales.

Barkdales has officially been awarded the highest possible rating of 5 stars by Stockport council for our fabulous day care facilities.


We are a unique daycare exclusively for small breeds. Our services are tailor-made meaning we adjust daily activities to mirror the home routine which your pet knows and loves. We only accept a maximum of 10 dogs each day, ensuring no overcrowding and lots of company for your little one. We always have at least 2 members of the team each day ensuring that your pets receive plenty of attention, individual care and lots of love.


You can find us conveniently located opposite Hazel Grove train station, with lots of free parking right outside.


What makes us special?

Barkdales offers a safe, secure, loving and stimulating environment for your dogs. During the day your best friend can choose from a wide range of activities including playing in the gym area and joining in with sensory activities. Dogs have access to an abundance of dog toys, constant access to the fully enclosed garden and sensory area as well as some lovely comfy sofas and chairs and obviously the ever available laps of our team members.

An individual care plan is designed to suit the needs and behaviours of each dog. Individual apartments are available, which the dogs are free to retreat to if they need a bit of quiet time. Those who require a little bit of security can also bring their own blankets and toys to help them feel right at home. The apartment doors are only closed if the care plan requests a separate place to eat or sleep during the day.


No day is ever the same at Barkdales – we love to theme our activities around the different seasons throughout the year and celebrate occasions such as birthdays.

Enrolment Process


Our enrolment process starts with a one-hour trial on the day you require. This is so our team can assess your dog in our day care and be sure we meet their needs before starting the enrolment process. Your dog will have a member of staff on a 1:1 basis for the hour to ensure they are settling in.


After a successful hour trial we can then enrol your pup or place them on the waiting list for a space. We will also offer you an introduction session where you can bring your dog into Barkdales after hours, to meet the team, see our facilities and discuss your dogs needs in-depth.
