A quick, snappy, focused recall. It’s something all dog owners strive for… but not something we all have. Fear not! Our 3-Week Recall Challenge is back! Now in its 4th iteration, this challenge is exactly as it says on the tin. A focus on recall training over 3 weeks. With live videos from Barket Place […]
It’s been such a year of highs and lows. So we decided we wanted to ensure our Barket Club members ended their year on a high! What boosts our mood better than music? Well, of course, our dogs! And if we add Christmas into the mix – you’ve got a recipe for festive fun! That’s […]
Are you taking part in our ‘Paws Up for the NHS’ Challenge? The last few weeks have been really unsettling – for both us and our dogs. We wanted to give you something to focus your dog’s minds on, bring a smile to your face, and support our heroic keyworkers. ‘Paws Up for the NHS’ […]

Have you seen the new Christmas Advert from John Lewis and Partners with Excitable Edgar the fire-breathing dragon? Well, it got us thinking about how we work with Reactive Dogs. When we put our stressed or fearful dogs in the wrong environment or context, then they are likely to blow. While Excitable Edgar’s energy is one of […]
I’m sure when you think about dog training, you don’t think about high plastic waste. Generally speaking, our pets’ use of plastic is pretty low – with dog food packaging being the highest culprit.
