Your dog’s best buddy

Pet care experience

I am a host with Rover since the early days of the company. Under the tongue in cheek name “Chateau Le Bark” I provide total care for pets and their 2 legged companions.  As pet ownership continues to sore in the UK and pet parents are seeking ever-expanding services for their furry friends, I keep adjusting my offerings accordingly. As part of my ongoing training, I completed a 6-week "Leash Monster" class on curbing leash aggression and happily teach visiting fur babies what I learned (Hint: there are lots of treats involved!). I also accommodate older or special needs dogs, adhere to special diets, and administer medication.  Under my experienced care, your dog will have plenty of fun and exercise with 3 - 4 walks each day including outings to nearby dog-friendly parks, forests, and nature reserves. In between all this activity and playtime, there will be periods of rest and snuggles and, if owners allow special treats. Your dog’s full and fun day of activity ends with plenty of snuggles. During sleep aways there are lots of toys, comfortable doggie beds to help your best friend miss you just a little less. Care from Chateau Le Bark provides an experience your dog will never forget! NEW: Chateau Le Bark now offers pet loss grief counseling. I’m a certified and licensed pet bereavement counselor and when the times comes to say a final goodby to your dog will be by your side to help you work through your grief. Ask me about it.

Ralf is an absolute delight to deal with. His service is a great combination of professionalism and an evident genuine love for dogs. The pre meet up allowed for us to confirm that Ralf and my French Bulldog, Ivy, were the right fit for each other but also provided me with a great level of comfort of knowing that I’m living my dog in the good hands. Ralf takes his job very seriously, asking questions about how to handle the dog in the best manner and provided me with daily updates and photos/videos throughout the whole stay. He also left the place in the immaculate state. I would highly recommend Ralf’s services and I will definitely be a returning customer. Thank you for everything, Ralf!

Ralph was completely faultless. He stayed at our house to look after our disabled French bulldog Ivy for a weekend. We were somewhat apprehensive about it all but on meeting him we were filled with confidence and the experience was great. Not only was he excellent with Ivy, who requires very specific care, but he was incredibly clean and left the house as if he hadn’t been there. Nothing bad to say and will definitely been requesting him again.
