Barkly Manor has been a long time dream that has finally come to reality. Shawn Bumiller’s love for animals and belief in Kim’s dream has made this all possible. Their determination led them to relocate to Denver to start this adventure.

Kimberly Arnold grew up in Morristown, NJ. Kimberly’s life has always been filled with amazing animals. She started working at the local horse stables at the age of 13. From there she went to work at a private stable where she trained ex-racehorses to become show jumpers. Of course there were also all of the family pets, from dogs, to cats and even ferrets that were in her care. Then came college where she attended Seton Hall University and received her Bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems. Despite all of the course work she still found the time to work at a boarding facility. After graduating she went to work in the IT field for a couple of years. During that time she realized that her true calling was working with animals, dogs in particular, so she started her own dog walking business. With her knowledge and passion for dogs she is looking forward to making Barkly Manor a wonderful place. She is also a trainer and  a certified canine good citizen evaluator.

Shawn also grew up in Morristown, NJ, where he enjoyed a typical happy childhood. After graduating from Villanova University, he entered the working world and for 5 long years worked for a large insurance company. Happy to escape the corporate rat race, he began working for his father’s small insurance agency. Under his father’s wing he learned of the hard work and rewards for owning one’s own small business. So when his lovely and beautiful girlfriend Kim approached him with the idea of moving across the country to open a doggie daycare he said, “Absolutely not”. Though through some coaxing, Kim got her way and the Barkly Manor dream became a reality. Shawn has no background in animals professionally. His job here is to provide emotional and financial support. So when you meet Shawn please be his emotional support and tell him that Barkly Manor will be a success and that everything is going to be alright!
