Snowy Days and Dog Holidays – February 2018

Barking Mad had an extremely busy February with lots of our existing customers booking in their doggie holidays for the year ahead. The snow didn’t stop us travelling the length and breadth of our territory from places like Glasgow to Strathaven to meet with new customers and their fantastic dogs to find out exactly what they would like from our truly bespoke dog sitting service.

Those dogs that were lucky enough to go on their holiday during the snowy weather enjoyed lots of fun filled walks followed by some well-earned rest and relaxation cosied up with their host families. Penny, a Dalmatian from Denny, had a fabulous time with Ruth in Motherwell and after their long walks really enjoyed wrapping herself up in her blanket to keep cosy whilst relaxing in front of the fire..

Archie loves being warm if it’s cold outside!

Archie loves his Barking Mad holidays with his host Catherine in Hamilton and wasn’t going to let a little bit of snow get in his way. He has stayed with Catherine on many occasions, they have a fantastic bond and really enjoy each other’s company. Due to the terrible weather his owners were unable to fly back into Glasgow Airport, so Archie got to stay on Holiday for an extra 2 days…there were no complaints from him or Catherine!!

Dogs for Good Fundraising – January 2018

We are very proud to announce that ‘Dogs For Good’ is Barking Mad’s chosen charity for 2018. This amazing charity trains assistance dogs to support adults and children with a wide range of disabilities. This helps give them back their independence and in turn enriches and improves their lives and the lives of their families too.

Barking Mad meets Dogs for Good

If you would like to help us raise money for such a fabulous charity then we will shortly be introducing an initiative to enable customers to make a voluntary donation of a pound, with every booking made with our dog home boarding service.

Barking Mad would love to raise enough money to fund the training of a puppy for Dogs for Good so Jakki and I have decided to start our ball rolling and will be organising a sponsored bike ride from Kilsyth to ‘The Kelpies’ in Falkirk and back again (30 miles approx).

We would love it if any of our customers and hosts would like to join us on this journey along The Forth and Clyde Canal taking in the stunning scenery and passing ‘The Falkirk Wheel’ along the way. We have yet to set the date so please keep an eye on future news for further details or please get in touch for more information. To have a look at our ‘Just Giving’ page click HERE
