Security and surveillance are also provided 24 hours a day. Birch Bark is located in a peaceful, rural, idyllic setting in the heart of the Orchard County. It is within walking distance of Peatlands Park and Derryadd Lake. The business is owned and run by Diane Turkington who has a lifetime of experience in keeping dogs. Diane was motivated to start Birch Bark as a business by her deep devotion to caring for dogs in a ground-breaking way and has an NVQ Level 2 qualification in Animal Care. Park/Lakeside Walks Give your dog that extra special treat and include our Peatland Park or Derryadd Lake Walk in your package. The walks are through very beautiful, unspoilt, countryside with views that are breathtaking. Web-Cam Service For extra peace of mind, book our web-cam service and view your pet when you want, giving you peace of mind that he/she is enjoying their holiday too (limited spaces). Grooming Service Why not have your pet professionally groomed whilst you are away. We can arrange to have your pet bathed and groomed before its departure for home. Collection Service If you are pushed for time preparing for your holiday, we can help by collecting your pet and taking him/her to Birch Bark for you. Some people find this way the parting is easier for both. We can also return your pet at your request. “Remember, it’s their holiday too!”
