    5 star review  We used Bark and Birch for one of their 2 week obedience training programmes after having our puppy for 2 weeks. He wasn’t enjoying his crate and was whining throughout the night. We had a great trainer in Shelley who trained our puppy to love his crate sleep through the night and no longer wee around the house. He’s well behaved understands his simple commands and is an all round well mannered lovely well trained puppy. I would highly recommend the two week course to start your puppy on the right path and before they pick up habits which are harder to get them out of. Great service from daily update videos to after care helping us keep our puppy on the right track. A very happy customer and a very happy pup. Would highly recommend to any new dog owner.

    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.

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