We are an experienced, relaxed, dog-loving family who have owned and loved dogs of all shapes and sizes all of our lives.
We have ALWAYS had a four legged friend sharing our home and we cannot imagine a time when we won’t have a dog (or 3) living here as part of our pack.
David and I have always had a dream of setting up and running a Boutique Dog Hotel here in North Norfolk. Dogs have always been a huge part of our family and we found care for them whilst away from home varied and challenging. Commercial Kennels are simply not an option for our beloved dogs. Although they are functional, we felt our dogs lacked the interaction, love and comfort they experience here at home.
We have both had long and varied careers in the service industry with David coming from an events and catering background and me from fashion retail with a daily 5am start commuting into Central London.
In 2002 David set up and still runs a successful building and renovations business whilst working part time as a Gamekeeper. I now run House of Barks here at home.
We have 2 teenage boys, Archie & Wilf, who have grown up in a house full of dogs. They love and adore having doggy guests staying with us. They are confident dog loving kids who understand the care, attention, respect and love that each individual dog deserves.
In 2018 we made the decision to start this new chapter and to finally fulfil our dream of working with dogs full time. We have NEVER looked back!
