Who we are
Hi, I’m Matthew. I’ve been an animal lover all my life.
I believe that a house is only a home when there is a pet in it! Having spent most of my life with animals by my side, I couldn’t imagine spending time without them.
My best friend Arnie, (the whippet) when he’s not sleeping, likes nothing more than a long walk and run around with his four legged friends.
BARK! Dog Walking & Pet Services is my dream job and I'm looking forward to working with you and your pets!
At BARK! we believe that it is important for a good bond to be formed between ourselves and our clients. For this to happen, we recommend that you and your dog join us on one of our walks.
That way you can see how we opperate and you can proceed with future bookings at your choice.
An optional home visit is available if a walk isn't convenient.
1 hour group dog walk
Additional dogs from the same house
Your dog will be collected and walked in a group of up to four.
Depending on the season, weather and breed of dog walks will take in the beautiful Ilkley countryside, ensuring your dog fully exercised. We walk dogs both off and on the lead (with your consent) giving them a great all round session.
After the walk your dog will be towel dried (if required) and returned safely home. Fresh water will be provided.
30 minute puppy visit/walk
If your puppy is too young to venture into the great outdoors, but you don't want to leave them alone for too long we can offer a ‘pop in’ visit.
During the visit we will ensure your puppy has lots of puppy play, toilet training and cuddles. For those little accidents we’ll make sure everything is spick and span before we leave.
Once your puppy is vaccinated and able to go for small walks we offer a one to one puppy walks.
40 minute individual dog walk
If your dog isn’t good in group, an individual walk is perfect for them. Dedicated one to one walking, from your home, means that your dog has our undivided attention.
Perfect for nervous, older or rescued dogs with a troubled past.

The safest way to transport your dog is in our custom fitted van. Contact BARK! to discuss our competative rates.
30 minute small animal care
