Barney is the Chief Happiness Officer at Breen & Associates. He is a happy chappy and is extraordinary in judging people's characters.


Chief Happiness Officer & Food Lover

Barney joined the Breen & Associates team in October 2020 when he was 12 weeks old!

He has an innate talent of finding happiness in everything he does. He radiates contentment and his joie de vivre is infectious. He is a great listener with an exceptional talent for cheering people up. 

Barney is very good at protecting his human friends with a loud bark and growl from what he perceives as danger (usually an unexpected noise outside the office).

He has completed Puppy & Juniors Dog Training. 

He enjoys playing with his favourite sticks (an entire selection from his walks in the forest), taking the team out for a walk, and food - lots of it!
