AGE / WEIGHT:   All dogs must be at least 6 months of age and no more than 50+/- pounds*.  In addition, all dogs must house trained (accidents happen - our wood floors get steamed cleaned every even day with pet friendly natural products and all guests have 24-hour outdoor access).

VACCINATIONS:  Like humans, vaccinating your dog could save them from preventable deadly canine illnesses.  In addition, dogs should be treated for flea and ticks (in the summer months at least) as Lyme and other diseases are preventable.   By limiting the number of guests to five (5)  dogs at any given time, the chance of infectious disease transition (such as kennel cough) is greatly
reduced.  However; as dog parents, we highly recommend, but do not require, the following for your dog: 

MEALS:  The Barksville Inn serves only premium, grain-free dog food rated 5-Stars by DogFoodAdvisor©.   Brands we serve include American Journey, Blue Buffalo, Natures Variety's Instinct & Taste of the Wild.  You are welcome to bring your dog’s food from home - in any container you choose - to avoid possible digestive issues.  Please no bowls or measuring cups - we have quite a large Lost-n-Found basket.




  1.     DOG COLLAR & LEASH:  A dog collar with an ID tag with your dog’s name & your name/phone number on it.

  2.     FOOD:  If you decide to bring your own food.  Any container or plastic baggie is fine.  No bowls or measuring cups, please.

  3.     MEDICATIONS:   Medications in a plastic baggie or easy to open bottle with clear instructions attached.

  4.     DOG BED / TOYS:  We welcome you to bring your pups favorite toy, bed, blanket or other item for comfort.   


The familiar scent of home can greatly reduce canine anxiety.   We will do our best to return your dog’s items in good condition; however, we cannot guarantee it.


PAYMENT:  Payment for Services is due at Pick-Up in the form of cash, check, debit/credit card or via Venmo ($barksville) and/or previously agreed upon payment method with the Innkeeper.   No deposit or prepayment is required.  The Barksville Inn never  charges additional fees for cancellations, late pick-ups, meals, administering medications, weekends or holiday stays.
