The Barlings Boarding Kennels Tour

What customers say about our dog boarding…

Cannot recommend enough!!! Took great care of our (very difficult) Mal while we were on a 2 week holiday. We know he is a real pain, but Barlings took good care of our boy and we felt relieved knowing he was in good hands. Thank you so much for looking after our Ruqi

Absolutely top class kennels. Mathew and Louise go that extra mile.There honesty and commitment is second to none. We cannot recommend them enough. Thank you.

Fantastic kennels, run by friendly and accommodating owners and staff. First time visit and so glad we came, won’t go anywhere else now. We usually have to groom the dogs on return from any other kennels we have used but Barlings did this as part of their great service, very impressed. Keep up the good work guys, see you soon.

Dog Training

We provide 1 to 1 training sessions that are bespoke to your requirements.

The onus is on you and your dog having fun and leaving with a positive attitude and sense of achievement.

You will be trained to train your own dog so you feel empowered when at home and have a plan.

We have a selection of our own dogs that join in the classes as a distraction.

Please ring for further information with your needs.

What customers say about our dog training…

Compassionate trainer, very experienced and patient with dogs and owners! Boarding facilities are excellent. Wonderful grooming facilities and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommend.

Have been taking my dog here for a few weeks now. Both of us are learning a lot as I soon realised that I am on as much of a learning curve as he is. The training environment is safe and Matthew is fantastic in his teaching methods, he is patient, calm and understanding giving max and I time to learn and giving max rest time during a lesson works really well for us. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this wonderful trainer to anyone.
