OUR TEAM

Bella Ryan

Daycare Leader

Bella came to Barkney Wick after setting up and running her own extremely popular dog daycare centre based at her home in Stoke Newington.  

Bella has extensive experience working with dogs of a variety of sizes, ages and temperaments.  Before em-barking on a full time position caring for pups, Bella held office and production roles.  She made the switch to caring for dogs to finally follow her passion.  Bella is an all-round animal lover and firmly believes in socialising dogs from a young age to provide them with confidence, teach them about the world we live in and how they should react to everyday normal events.
