Welcome to our latest hosts, making waves on the radio and Barking Mad Banbury back on the road.

Hi everybody. Thanks for taking the time to stop-by and welcome to your local Barking Mad Banbury news update for June.

We’d first like to welcome our latest additions to our host community. Lovely Ann and Helen are besotted by doggies and have plenty of experience looking after their own and other people’s pooches. They are both such a great addition to our dog boarding service in Banbury and we’re thrilled to have two such wonderful, caring ladies join our community of dog sitters.

Would You Like to Bring Your Dog to Work?

Bringing Dogs to Interviews – a Barking Mad idea?

In today’s pet friendly climate, dogs appear to be welcomed in more ways than ever. Fancy a coffee with your pooch in tow? – Just visit a dog friendly café. Want to book a holiday? – You will be astounded at the sheer volume of accommodation that now welcomes our four legged friends. There are limits however, or are there? Some forward thinking companies such as Google and Barking Mad Dog Care, now allow employees to bring sociable dogs to work in their head-quarters all year round but for everyone else, the UK’s fifth official Bring Your Dog to Work Day will take place on Friday 22nd June, encouraging businesses to welcome employees’ canine companions into the workplace to raise money for charity.
