Great dog care

Gary looks after my two dogs, a mixture of dog walking and holiday care. He is absolutely fantastic with them and
they love him! I completely trust Gary with my dogs and can't recommend him highly enough,

Our Cocker Spaniel loves Gary. He takes her for walks whilst we are at work. It is clear that Gary loves dogs and has a

great affinity with them. I am very happy to leave my beloved dog in Gary's care and trust that he will always look after her.

Gary has just looked after our Beagle-cross Poppy for the past 2 weeks, throughout, he text us with updates and posted videos of her having fun in the park. She really took to him, as did we, he's a lovely guy who genuinely cares for your pet the way you would - I wouldn't hesitate to use Gary again, or to recommend him to others.....Thanks Gary!

Excellent service
Gary has recently walked our 3 dogs several times and delivered house sitting for 5 days and we could not be happier with
the service provided. It is obvious that Gary is a huge dog lover and their welfare is of the utmost importance to him. We would definitely recommend Gary and will continue to use Barks in the Parks.

I couldn't recommend Gary more. A perfect gentleman who walks my two dogs every day. Reliable and pleasant with a true affinity to animals. So grateful I found him . Don't hesitate to use his services. He's a treasure. My Puddles and Daisy think he is ok too.


Barks in the Parks
My cocker spaniel runs away from me to jump up to Gary, whether he is taking him for a walk or spending time together while we are away. Nothing is too much trouble for Gary, who picks him up and drops him off.
I am delighted I have found a second home for my pet pooch, and Gary is the only choice for my pet and me.

Trusting someone to walk and care for a man’s or woman’s best friend is a difficult find but Gary and his company Barks in the Parks has been a Godsend.

Scarlette my dog absolutely loves him. Scarlette jumps from my car wagging her tail and runs to Gary when I drop her off in Prestwich. I travel from Worsley so Gary can walk and dogsit Scarlette most days and it is the best decision I have made for Scarlette and myself.

She is always wagging her tail and sleeps peacefully when she gets home with me. I have total peace of mind and this makes my working life easier as I don’t worry about Scarlette being on her lonesome during my working hours. So, a million Thank yous Gary, Scarlette and I are very lucky ladies indeed in finding someone so kind and honest and who genuinely loves animals.
Thank you so very much Gary.
Scarlettes Mum.

Above and beyond
I have a very insecure, jumpy dog from a rescue, who does not like other dogs coming too close to him. Gary walks him regularly and always goes above and beyond to make sure my dog has an enjoyable and stress free walk. I trust him implicitly to ensure the safety of my dog and other dogs he meets.

Great Care!
Gary looked after our dogs while we were away. He had a great relationship with them, and even did extra visits off his
own back. He was really flexible, and the dogs loved him (even without treats!). He also looked after our geck, which isn't everyone's cup of tea. He was very thorough and made sure he had all the information he needed to make sure our animals were well looked after. We have already booked him to look after our pets again when we are next away. We would highly recommend him.

The Best
Gary has been walking our dogs now for sometime, at first we were not sure about letting somebody else walk our dogs but we didn’t need to worry. Gary Is the absolute best person that we could wish for to walk the dogs and look after our other animals, Rabbits, birds and smaller animals. We would recommend him very highly and have nothing but praise for him.
Our dogs love him.
