TESTIMONIALS

Fantastic service from start to finish. The Bark & Birch team within a few weeks transformed my dog who was very hyper now hes so chilled and so good out and about. I’ll be using their services again and I’d highly recommend Bark and Birch to anyone.

My 4 year old German Shepherd went for a 2 week board as he was aggressive towards people and other dogs and his behaviour was getting worse. I was very nervous having him sent away for such a long time but I can’t thank Bark & Birch and the team enough. It was the best decision I made for him, he is so much more calm and happier now, I actually enjoy taking him on walks again and can have friends over to the house without having to shut him away. I highly recommend Bark & Birch for all their hard work with my boy and am so thankful I have my kind, calm, family dog back.

I got Marley an Alaskan Malamute from a rescue centre where he had been for over 3 years, when I got him he had some behaviour problems and showing slight aggression towards other dogs and to my youngest granddaughter. So looking for someone who could help I came across the Bark & Birch site and reading the reviews, I gave them a call and never regretted it. He took Marley for just over 2 weeks and with the training he was given by the trainer he came back a totally different dog. I would highly recommend this training team. I was getting regular videos and updates on his daily training and so I could see how he was improving day by day
Thank you Bark & Birch

Ray
We rescued a street dog from Spain with acute anxiety issues. After much consultation we decided to book 5 weeks of specialist training and kennelling with his team. It was amazing to watch her progress on the daily videos and see Tina slowly change and enjoy her training. She was mentored by Gloria who is a specialist with anxious dogs, who delivered her back home and spent hours with us to ensure we could carry on her training.
We now have a happy dog, who is craving praise and human interaction with an on ongoing training programme tailored to her.
We can’t thank this amazing team enough, with special thanks to Gloria for her patience and dedication

What a turn around, the team kept Rex longer than agreed and brought him back a new dog, with a great handover, & continuous support we have our dog back. Went in for all types of aggression and came out a new dog! Thank you Gloria Amanda & team!!!

Brad
Our rescued German Shepherd was having issues with dogs and humans. Showing aggression towards both. After two weeks, videos sent daily from Bark & Birch, our German Shepherd, and us, have an excellent start to our training. She is now socialising with dogs and people. Doesn’t pull like before and is amazing to see her happy. Thanks to Gloria and the team.

Finding Bark & Birch was the best thing to happen to me and my dog. It has completely changed my viewpoint on dog training. He is like a real life dog whisperer and has put in so much time and effort into getting to know my dog personally, and really helping me to learn as well. Their doggy dog care is also a god send -my dog prefers it there than his own home! I can’t recommend him highly enough!

Jessica
Fantastic training. I sent Max my Staffy cross for the 3 week program and such a huge change! He was a terrible puller on the lead, would ignore my commands and didn’t like other dogs approaching him. Gloria was brilliant and he now respects me as his owner and I truly enjoy taking him out for walks now. I am now also able to take him to a dog social group every week in my area to continue to work on his relationship with other dogs without fear as he listens to me brilliantly now. Honestly cannot thank Bark & Birch enough!!

Rebecca

Francis
We had a trainer come to us for the first part of our German shepherd Lily’s training he was amazing. From the first meeting we could see he knew his stuff, within minutes he had lily obeying his commands. After a few sessions we could see a marked improvement in her obedience that we decided to take her training to the next level she went to stay for eight nights boarding. She now responds to all commands, walks to heal. We would recommend Bark & Birch to everyone as this team are totally professional, amazing work.
