    5 star review  Kim was a real find - and the Bark and Birch service is fantastic. Responsive, professional and caring. We booked a two week basic residential training course, and our puppy has come back more confident and able to take direction. We're more confident following the hand over too! We know we've ongoing support/advice should we need it which is great as our puppy grows and new training queries appear.

    5 star review  I was really nervous about boarding my puppy for 2 weeks, but I knew it was essential for his development. I never felt pressured to take on their service, they offered a balanced opinion, which was helpful and comforting. Communication was consistent and regular. I received regular updates, pictures and videos, which was a huge comfort. Bark and Birch were accommodating where possible and very professional. I highly recommend Bark and Birch, best decision that I made and great value for money. Now I can enjoy my puppy as opposed to being a very tired, stressed puppy mum! Personal thank you to Corrina.

    5 star review  Our experience with Bark and Birch was fantastic. Our Cockapoo Sadie needed training for walking to heel, separation anxiety, greeting people, and to become more comfortable in her crate. We were able to chose a specialized two week course. Sadie's trainer Shelley was absolutely perfect. She accomplished all of our goals and we were given updates daily with videos/pictures. When Sadie really enjoyed a particular toy and treat, she even sent us a picture so we could get it for home as well. The handover was great. Shelley took time to make sure we understood the new commands and answered ALL of our questions. Since having Sadie back, Shelley has also been very responsive to some follow up questions. Highly recommend Shelley as a trainer!

“Bark & Birch has been a god send. Our 2 year old PUG was destroying everything, their 2 week course made such a difference”
