I founded Barker’s Dogs in January 2016 on my pure passion and love of dogs. I grew up with a Daschund, then had Chihuahuas and I now have a Spaniel and two Pointers. I have always had a massive love and interest for every breed, they are all fascinating in their own way. I take great pride in running a very successful and highly thought of top class service. Having dogs of my own I understand how important it is to have peace of mind that they are being cared for to the highest standard and are happy and safe.
Mike has extensive experience from working at a well known Doggy Day care provider in London, where his primary role was carer/driver for up to 100 dogs a day. Working with many different breeds and temperaments Mike takes it all in his stride. His vast knowledge, experience and compassion towards dogs is a great asset to the Barker’s team. He has chosen to ditch his fast paced London life and now lives a short distance between Stanmer & Wild Park.
Lee specialises in the K9 Sports side of Barker’s. An avid Canicross runner Lee has the ability to get the best out of your four legged friend. He can either free run your dog or run them wearing a Canicross harness, either solo or as part of a pack. Lee can also give your dog a bit of fun with Bikejoring. Both of these sports are great for high energy dogs and dogs that need to learn focus. Lee enjoys nothing more than long rewarding walks in the countryside and giving all dogs the best stimulation and happiness possible. When he’s not out walking or running, he plays a supporting role with day care, boarding and walking.
