Our pet services come with an initial consultation visit.
The initial consultation visit is free of charge and it enables you and your pet to meet us to discuss the care and services that you require.
If you require a dog walking service the initial consultation will also include going out with you and your dog so that we can get to know and understand their personality.
At the visit we will go through the paperwork, which includes completion of a dog, cat or small animal registration form, show you our credentials and insurance document.
The visit will also give us the opportunity of discussing areas of security within your home.

We would also be pleased to care for any small animals at the same time.
Testimonials For Our Pet Sitting Service
"Following on from the training classes, I had a weeks holiday booked.
I thought of no one better to ask than Ros and the team.
Communication was brilliant before during and throughout.
Ros was informative, thorough and very attentive.
I knew my puppy was in the best care until I returned.
After the holiday I received a report on how he had been and what he got up to, full of his adventures, behavior and pictures too.
This was brilliant.
Amazing, I would recommend this 10 out of 10 service to anyone.
Thanks again, its people like you that make a difference in our pets lives :)"

"I'm glad your husband has found Bentley to be a lovely dog and has become fond of him like the rest of your family and can
I just take this opportunity to say how grateful that I am for all you, David and Danny have done in regards to walking and
looking after Bentley. I am truly impressed at how professional and knowledgeable of dogs you are.
I was lacking in confidence when it came to who I allowed to looked after Bentley and I hate to say it but I was also lacking confidence in Bentley after what I have been told he was like without me around but I feel you have shown me that these feelings are not necessary and have put my mind at rest.
Forever grateful to you all"

Thankyou so much Bark2school, Ros, Danny & Sue for the wonderful start you have all contributed towards Baileys training,
I'm sure she wouldn't be so far ahead without your expertise & continued care We are continuing with her training (Alan's started on her special trick)
and we are so happy with how she has progressed in both her behaviour and temperament . Once Bailey has completed her obedience training we will be
signing her up for the crèche and agility - she loves school days! Anyone thinking of training their puppy I would recommend Bark2school and the
team as caring experienced trainers who really do have your dogs very best interests at heart. Training is reward based, structured, consistent & fun.
Thank you again team. xxx"

"Rocco has not been happy a lot lately, but he made a box last night after puppy club and put his happy things in to remind him. Thank u to u all for class we really enjoyed it x"
"I recently attended the junior class along with my two children. Ros was fantastic with my miniature schnauzer "Archie".
Archie was very excitable to say the least at the beginning of the course and I nearly gave up after week 1 but Ros
was great and very patient with him and us!! We soon learnt how to control his barking. The training techniques for the basic commands
really work and he was like a different dog by the end of the course and that was due to Ros’s expertise. We took everything on board
from the classes and it definitely paid off.
I would highly recommend Bark2School not only was the course informative, enjoyable and fun; Ros is available at the end of the phone during and after the course which I think is so important."

"Having recently completed the puppy class followed by the junior class, I would not hesitate in recommending BARK TO SCHOOL to anyone.
Classes were run very professionally and with excellent tuition.
Every class was both enjoyable and beneficial to both of us. Thank you."

"We used Bark2School for both the puppy socialisation and the foundation class for Merlin our flatcoat retriever. Throughout both courses I think we learned as
much as Merlin! Both Ros and Emma were very patient with all puppies and especially their owners! The end results speak for themselves and I would have no
hesitation recommending Bark2School."

"We took our puppy 'Tilly', a Cavachon, to both the Puppy Socialisation Class and the Junior Course. It definately gave us a good and clear insight into the
correct way to train Tilly and try and get the best out of her. We enjoyed the classes, especially the Junior course which gave us enough room and space to
learn the new techniques for correct training. Ros and Emma were very helpful and knowledgeable and we would definately not hesitate in recommending their services."
Many thanks. Best regards"

"We took our 8 month old GSD Zeus to Bark2School. We attended the Foundation course. Ros was absolutely lovely and really couldn't want to help you more.
She was so patient with all the puppies and their owners :)
After having a chat with Ros about our worries with Zeus misbehaving she advised us to have a 1-1 consultation with Emma and I now I feel so much more confident
and Zeus, well he's like a different dog. He is so well behaved.
I wouldn't hesitate recommending Ros & Emma to anyone (and I have). Thank you so much for all your help. When dad is home, we will be talking about other classes for Zeus and we were quite interested in the agility course once we have worked on Zeus's interaction with other dogs which we may need yours/Emma's help with and depending if my brother jack get a job he's doing a trial for, we would be interested in the dog walking as well."
