The pawfect place for your pets

Jack Hayes

Life’s true joy is often intertwined with the presence of our beloved pets, and for Bark Road, this heartfelt connection serves as the driving force behind their brand.

Bark Road is a community-centred pet store, located as part of West Melbourne’s West End at Adderley St.

With a commitment to providing quality products and unparalleled customer service and being a sustainable pet store, owner and founder Brent Martin has Bark Road poised to become the go-to destination for pet owners and enthusiasts.

“Life’s no fun without our pets,” Mr Martin said. “They’re the true spirit of our brand, and we believe in listening to them and learning from our customers, friends, and the wider community. We aim to build relationships that last.”


We are excited to offer a wide range of products and services to cater to the diverse needs of your furry family members.


Bark Road offers a diverse array of premium pet products, including high-quality pet food, treats like crocodile tails and kangaroo boomerangs, toys, grooming supplies, and refill and reuse products. Their carefully curated inventory ensures that you can find everything you need for your pets under one roof.

Mr Martin’s clear passion and enthusiasm for animals shines though, not just in his product line but his knowledge and advice for product recommendations, pet healthcare, and general pet care tips.

At Bark Road, you’ll find an unwavering commitment to environmental sustainability through implementing a refill and reuse model to reduce plastic waste in landfills, recyclable packaging is recyclable, and sourcing “from sustainable supply chains whenever possible.”



“Our journey as a small business may not be easy, but we are committed to making a positive impact. We’re constantly looking for ways to minimise our footprint and improve as we go,” Mr Martin said.

“We are proud to be a part of this vibrant community and are committed to engaging with our neighbours through pet-related events, workshops, and educational programs.”

“Join us on our mission to become a colourful, modern, and sustainable pet brand. Bark Road is not just a store; it’s a movement that celebrates the bonds we share with our pets and the planet we call home.”

Bark Road also offers an in-house grooming salon, where their trained professionals will provide a range of services, from baths and nail trims to stylish haircuts. All products can be found online with delivery available throughout Melbourne’s inner city.

Bark Road is located at 118 Adderley St, West Melbourne. •
