What my customers say

Our family have used Barko's for nearly three years now and have found them to be flexible, reliable, conscientious and what is also very evident is that they love dogs! Our dogs in turn love walking with Kelly, she's very good with them and they trust her, as we do. We couldn't have found a better walker!

Kelly has been brilliant since we first asked her to look after Pip when she was just a puppy. Kelly welcomed Pip into her home and I always feel like she is treated like a member of the family. We appreciate how reliable and trustworthy Kelly has been and she goes out of her way to fit in with our plans. Pip has been collected from our house and taken for a walk, she has spent the whole day with Kelly and she has also been for sleep overs. She always returns happy and worn out. I highly recommend Kelly to look after your dog as if they were her own.

I am a shift worker often working long shifts at very bizarre times of the day. It is great that Kelly is able to walk Buttons at various times during the day - Kelly will walk Buttons either in the morning, lunch or later in the afternoon and it is vital as a shift worker that she is also available to provide some weekend walks as well as the normal monday to friday. It’s even better when you know your dog clearly likes going on walks with her so much. I can go to work knowing that Buttons is in safe hands and will have had a good walk whilst I am not there. I don’t think Kelly has ever refused a request from me even at short notice when I have been unwell. Going to work is much easier when you have one less thing to worry about and knowing Buttons is being looked after gives me great peace of mind.

Kelly has walked our two young dogs since they were puppies and has helped with their behaviour management when out on walks, such as jumping up and eating stuff they shouldn’t. They come back cleaned up and tired by their exercise and happy to rest until I come home. Kelly has been reliable and flexible with our variable working hours. Our dogs like and respect her and enjoy going out with her. I am very happy to recommend Kelly.
