Barket Place was born to help committed pet parents through their journey, raising their dogs. We want to help reduce the overwhelm that can be met dealing with behavioural challenges, training scenarios, and all the decisions we make as dog guardians. We offer a digital experience that allows you to get the support and advice you need instantly.

The number one reason that dogs under 3 are given up to a rescue centre or euthanised is attributed to behavioural challenges. We want to make a change.

Through our courses, consultations, and webinars – as well as our subscription-based Barket Club – our priority is supporting you to get the best out of your relationship with your dog.

Our Founder, Caroline, has a passion for improving connections between human and hound, with a focus on relationships and reduction of stress for canines living in a human world. We’re here for BOTH ends of the lead – to make sure you have the support you need.
