British dog training company Bark & Birch Global is expanding into several new territories in 2022 including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong.
The company is also planning to further increase its European footprint this year to cover France and Germany.
Chief executive Nick Rijniers, who began his career training German and Belgian Shepherds in the Dutch Special Forces, started the company in 2019 in the UK with only two members of staff.
Bark & Birch now has over 100 staff members globally and trains over 1000 dogs a month. turning over $8 million dollars in the second year of business with operations in UK, Ireland, Portugal and the USA.
The growth of Bark & Birch into Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and New Zealand furthers strengthens the brands global reach and follows the official launch of Bark & Birch in Brazil in December last year.
Rijniers said: “2022 was always going to be a huge year for Bark & Birch. Expanding into Australia, New Zealand and Asia is huge for us and we have already started recruiting for staff and dog trainers in these areas.
“We have always had the goal of becoming the biggest dog services company across the world and we are thrilled to be expanding into these territories.”
Bark & Birch’s team of dog behaviourists and ex-police/army dog handlers rehabilitate animals and teach basic and advanced obedience, either as part of a residential ‘Board and Train’ programme or through a series of private one-to-one sessions. The company claims it will always strive to build customised programs around each dog.
