Introducing Mandy, one of our amazing hosts
Host Mandy loves caring for Charlie
If you could choose the perfect dog sitter to care for your dog when you have to go away, what qualities would you look for? – Someone nurturing, experienced and a passionate dog lover? At Barking Mad Dog Care, we have had eighteen years of experience of carefully matching our thoroughly vetted host families to our doggy guests’ individual requirements. We assess each host family in person and visit each time a customer’s dog comes to stay, to ensure that our high standards of dog sitting quality are maintained, for your ultimate peace of mind.
Each month we will be shining a spotlight on one of our fantastic dog sitter host families to show just what amazing dog carers they really are! This month we are delighted to introduce you to Mandy Waring, from Chester, who loves to welcome Barking Mad doggy guests into her home.
Amanda was nominated by Peter and Bianca Leaver , owner-operators of Barking Mad Chester and Cheshire West, who couldn’t wait to sing her praises! They told us:
“Mandy truly enjoys the company of dogs and they seem to sense this as soon as they meet her. It is notable how quickly Mandy assesses the personality and quirks of any dog she trials and adjusts her methods to care for each dog as an individual. This means that doggy holidaymakers soon settle in and holidays are always set to go well, right from the very start.
Every time we have asked her to Host, she has readily agreed and has given the dogs we place in her inimitable care, lots of wonderful experiences, which mean they get a fabulous holiday when with her.
Mandy is a real ‘can-do’ person who has an enviable air of serenity about her. She is a joy to work with and we have come to value Mandy very highly indeed as one of our most capable and reliable colleagues in our dog sitting service in Chester and Cheshire West.
Mandy enjoys a cuddle with Minnie
With their owner’s permission, Mandy has even recently taken two doggy guests (Minnie and Ruby) to another of her homes, on a fabulous ‘holiday within a holiday’ in the Lake District. They clearly had a fabulous time with her there, judging by the pictures we received. They have also visited some rather smart pubs with Mandy and her husband and are generally accepted into her family life with total immersion. The genuine joy with which they greeted her as we took them for their latest holiday, was heart-warming proof, if ever needed, of just how welcoming Mandy is to our Barking Mad dogs.
Mandy genuinely and whole-heartedly enjoys spending time with dogs and we think they bring her company, snuggles and welcome distraction from her work, which she does from home, whilst her husband is away on business. Mandy is a very nurturant person and our dogs benefit from this every moment of every day when with her. She really does have all the crucial personal qualities and motivations for an outstanding dog holiday host.”
