Grand Opening Celebration!

Grand Opening Celebration!

Join us on April 19th to help us celebrate Barley’s grand opening!

Puppy Swimming Lesson

Puppy Swimming Lesson

I don’t know if it can get any cuter than a puppy swimming lesson! The next class will be held on Wed Apr 23rd from 6 pm – 7 pm for $15. It’s a great way to introduce the puppies to the water and a fun opportunity for them to socialize with (and pick on) dogs their own size! Contact us if you are interested in signing up at (801) 467-6069.

Barley’s swimming pool is now open!

Barley’s swimming pool is now open!

The opening day at Barley’s swimming pool could not have been more perfect!  Thank you to everyone that came in today.  Tucker, Zeus, Hogan (pictured), Zuri, Abbey, Toby and Tig, you made this day so special.  We hope we get to see you at Barley’s again soon!

First Time Swimming for Dogs

First Time Swimming for Dogs

We had our staff training on the first time swimming orientations this weekend at the rec center.  Lori from CRCG in Denver flew in to offer the training.  Thanks Lori, it was a blast!  A special thanks goes out to all the dog owners that allowed us to train with their pooches.  The first time swimming orientations will be required as a one-time training to ensure each dog can swim and get in and out of the pool safely.  This is offered at $25.  After the first time, the open swim rates apply.  We can’t wait to open the doors!

Starting to fill the pool!

Finally, the pool is up! Get ready to have some fun!! We are shooting for a mid-March opening and will post more news as we get closer to the opening date. Watch for the article spotlighting Barley’s in the March edition of Pets in the City Magazine. Thanks Megan and Debbie!

Game on!  We got our building permits and the rec center construction is currently under way. 

 

The county approved our building plans and issued permits for the rec center located at 2300 E 2827 S.  We hope to have the recreation center open by early 2014.  Follow us on Facebook to keep up on the progress.

Thank you for spreading the word about Barley’s to all the dog lovers out there!

County Building Permits Update

It would sure be nice to have a fun indoor place for our dogs to play and swim, especially during the cold, windy, dark days of winter!  We were expecting to be open by the first of the year but unfortunately the county has other plans for us!  The building department gave us a time frame of 4-6 weeks for the construction plans approval and building permits needed in order to complete the construction and build the pool.  Hopefully the process will be on the shorter end of the projected time frame.  At this rate, the soonest we would expect to be open is Feb 2014.  Stay tuned for more information and follow us on Facebook to get updates on the progress.  Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Doggy Day Care Lounge

Doggy Day Care Lounge

The half walls separating the large dog lounge from the small dog lounge in the doggy day care are up and should be finished today!  BCRC will have soft rubber flooring throughout the day care and lounge areas for increased traction and comfort for the pooches.

BCRC is adding an agility training course to the rec center!

In addition to the indoor dog pool, day care, dog wash, walking and hiking options, BCRC will also be offering an indoor agility training course for your pooch to practice on! We will have open course times and reserved course times, depending on your preference. Construction on the facility is moving right along, demo: check, build out: in progress.
