*Adores dogs and loves spending time with them.
– Owner of Barkers, canine crazy and primary service provider
Barkers was born out of my lifelong passion for all things canine and a burning desire to do something that I love.
I’d spent almost 20 years in the design industry but had always had a yearning to move away from the corporate world and follow my heart. While living in Dubai I began fostering cats and spent many weekends helping at a local dog charity and so my determination to take the leap strengthened. After falling in love with one particular dog at their kennels my mind was made up; I quit my job, adopted Benton (the dog in question) and brought him back to the UK with me, determined to bring the best possible pet care to Salford.
Since then I’ve completed training in Canine First Aid, I am now undertaking a course through the ADTB(Academy of Dog Training and Behaviour) and loving every moment.
– Hole digger, muddy carpet maker
When I first arrived in England things were very strange and I was nervous of traffic noise and the tall groups of dark trees in the park. After lots of slow introduction and reassurance I’m now bouncy and confident; a converted desert boy who enjoys nothing more than rampaging through the woods.
*I’ll do anything for chicken.
