Welcome to Barking Success

We are located on the same site in conjunction with the long established Old Clayton Kennels and Cattery on the Storrington Road in Washington, West Sussex, RH20 4AG.



Day Care


We offer a social, interactive day care for your best friend


Barking Success is set on 4 acres of land and is adjoined to Old Clayton Kennels and Cattery. We are a well-established Day Care and Training Centre for all breeds, shapes, sizes and personalities.
Our Day Care is the perfect place to leave your beloved pet for the day. You can be confident that they are in the care of our experienced Team, who want to play and enjoy their time with your best friend.





What will your dog be up to during the day?

Your dog will be introduced carefully into our secure, fenced play areas, they also enjoy a lengthy walk on our 4 acres of land. New dogs are kept on lead at first until our Team are confident that they are comfortable with the other dogs. If a dog shows any sign of stress or discomfort, we have the space and facilities to keep them in a smaller group or away from other dogs for the day if necessary.
We understand that different dogs want different things, from hyperactive puppies to our more senior members! We closely monitor all dogs throughout their day to ensure that they are having a great time and socializing happily with their friends. We post pictures of their day on our Facebook page every evening so you can see what they got up to!

Throughout the day your dog will be physically and mentally stimulated both indoors and outside. We take all the dogs on a walk around our paddock in the morning. We take full advantage of our location, acreage and our four secure outdoor play areas. New Astroturf has been placed in our two biggest play areas so that your dogs can run around on the grass all year long without it tiring! At Barking Success, we ensure that all dogs get the chance to socialize together in an outdoor, natural environment. We also have two indoor areas with extra bedroom space where the dogs can have some quiet time.

Our Team provide long, flexible hours starting from 7:30am till 6:30pm. You can pick from a range of options and packages to suit. You can see the prices if you click the Day Care and Boarding drop down menu at the top of the page.
