Owning a dog opens up a whole new world; in which people smile at you as you pass them in the street, stop and chat to you as you walk in the park and, even more surprising, talk to you on public transport! Even though we had a dog when I was a child, I wasn’t really prepared for the changes which happen when you own a dog for the first time.

We hope you enjoy the website, about Barney, our Border Terrier and everything about dogs that might help you on your journey. I’m not a vet or a dog trainer, just a very happy Border Terrier owner. I hope you love Barney’s tails, as much as we do!

Welcome to Barney’s world, our Scruffy Little Terrier.
