About us

Why come to The Bark Side?

The Barkside is a small, family run business working from Pineham Lock, Northampton. Having owned a variety of pets throughout our lives, we’re avid animal lovers with a wide range of experience with animals.

We never out-board to other carers, meaning that we get to know both you and your pets very well, helping to eliminate stress they – and you – may feel each time they are placed with someone new. Your pets become much-loved members of our family, ensuring that when they are with us, they really do feel like they're at a ‘home from home’.
