“Dogs are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.”

We understand that occasionally, although we adore our four legged companions, they are sometimes left at home..

This is where Bark Academy comes in..

What we offer –

Puppy Visits

We offer a Puppy Home Visit, which stops you worrying about your new fur baby whilst you are at work. If your new pup is too
young to join us for walks, we will pop along to your home, and spend some time cuddling and playing with your new addition, clean up any accidents and make sure they get something nice to eat until they’re ready to join our Happy Pack Adventures.

Group Walks

Your Dog will be picked up in one of our doggy friendly vans. All of our walks have been carefully assessed to ensure maximum fun and safety.
Our walks will be filled with a mixture of enrichment games and training.
Group walks are a great opportunity for your dogs to become well socialised, have fun and on a whole become better behaved. Your dog will be exercised in a friendly group.
Your Dog is looked at individually so if he/she loves doing zoomies and playing chase with their pals or prefers to have a relaxing tootle, we will cater to all individual needs.

After your dogs walk, your dog will be returned to the van in which they will be dried, and returned home safely.
At home we will replenish fresh water bowls and feed or give treats as discussed in the consultation. Any other requirements please ask, such as curtains closed, lights left on/off or TV/Radio.

We will come for a consultation to your house where we can meet your four legged companion, this is where you can tell us about your dog and we can tell you a little bit more about ourselves and the company.
After our consultation we will contact you with confirmation of your booking ( by phone, text or email ).
Keys and alarm codes will also be discussed in the consultation. A record of your dog’s vet and medical needs will be taken in case of an Emergency.

Then the next step is where the fun begins…

Your dog will be picked up in our doggy friendly van.
The van is set up in professional dog cages with beds and blankets so your dog can relax to and through their walks.
When we arrive at our chosen walk this is where the adventure starts…

We walk in ALL WEATHERS.
However safety is our main priority, therefore we will not walk in excessive heat or snow but we will make alternative arrangements to make sure all the dogs are seen to.
Dogs can be let off their leads but only with the clients written consent and if we are happy on the dogs recall, this will be discussed as part of the consultation.
Your dog will rest after an exciting days adventure, waiting happily and content for you to return home. We are fully insured through Pet Plan and Canine First Aid Trained.

We can update you on your dogs daily adventures via text. In Addition you can also visit us on Facebook to see photos and videos of our walks which is www.facebook.com/BarkAcademyDogWalking and we are also on Instagram – @TheBarkBus_DogWalking.

On our walks we provide training, to ensure the dogs safety, ours and the public’s. Your dog will be taught to sit and wait outside the van, sit and wait before commencing the walk and being let off lead (if agreed in consultation). Recall at all times is very important, if your dog has no recall or limited recall, we can also help with the training of this. Whilst having fun on our walks, training also stimulates the brain ensuring after the walk your dog is tired physically and mentally.
