Briarcliff is a dream come true and an exciting venture for new owners Peter and Valerie Atkinson. For about 4 years they have been looking for just the right location to launch their vision of a Pet Resort. One of the most important elements they looked for was space. Too many of the boarding facilities and veterinarians offices they visited were too cramped and small. They wanted to have extra large play yards, huge play arenas both indoors and outdoors, no cages, just beautiful large rooms and suites. I know they were asking “for the world”…and they found it in the beautiful BRIARCLIFF. Briarcliff is LIKE NO OTHER pet facility you’ve seen. It is a HUGE 20 acre facility dedicated to just animals of all kinds. Located in the beautiful countryside of the city Menifee, Briarcliff has all the room you could want for your pets visit with us. The building alone is 25,000 square feet that is climate controlled for your pets comfort during any season. Recently purchased near the end of 2007, it has been under complete renovations and upgrades and under this new ownership is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care and attention for your pets.

Peter and Valerie Atkinson, both Professional Dog Handlers with over 40 years combined experience have a long and extensive history in the Pet Care Industry. As new owners they’re very “Hands On” in running their business and are committed to making sure each and every pet has an enjoyable and stimulating stay. Their “Hands On” approach assures the owners that their pet is being handled, walked, loved and cared for many times a day. They don’t believe in the “guillotine door” set up of most kennels. Their idea that each dog is handled multiple times a day provides “peace of mind” for them as well as owners. They believe that this “hands on” approach is the only way to run their business and it ensures Happy and HEALTHY Guests.

As Top Professional Dog Handlers Peter and Valerie Atkinson have conditioned and campaigned many of the Country’s Top Show Dogs. They have handled numerous Best In Show winners and #1 ranked dogs in a variety of breeds and are committed to providing quality care. Feel free to take a peek at some of their Show Clients dogs and the success they have enjoyed, by looking through the show gallery. Many of these dogs having lived with us during their show careers and were professionally presented, conditioned and groomed by Peter and Valerie or their staff. More recently, Valerie had a nice article in the Wall Street Journal Feb. 10, 2009 that ran during the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

Valerie Atkinson and friend.
