Host Longevity – A Barking Mad dog can be for life!

When you become a host family with Barking Mad Leeds you could get visitors for many years. Flat coated Retriever Cedar and his older sister Berry, first had a dog home boarding holiday with Barking Mad Leeds in 2007.  Here is Cedar with the Hartleys in 2007 and his latest visit in 2017.

They always stay with the Hartley family who started hosting in 2006 and still host today. Cedar has had many dog holidays over 10 years and he is now 11 years old. He still enjoys his holidays but now with his younger sister Chilli and his puppy brother Lowan.

It’s been a Dogtober for us with Dogs For Good!

Barking Mad Leeds has been supporting Dogs for Good, a charity that provides dogs to support children and adults in their day to day life. We love them so on top of our every day dog sitting service we held a Hot dog and Pup cake sale at our local Scout group. They had great fun making dog masks, origami dogs and of course eating plenty of food. A grand total of £66.50 was raised.
