Barking Mad Plymouth, Torbay and South Hams Dog Sitting Local News Spring 2019
Looking forward to Spring in Devon and Cornwall
Barking Mad in Plymouth and Torbay are looking forward to Spring. After a few days of Summer in February we are back to normality now. Make the most of taking your dog to the beaches along the English Riviera, South Hams and South Cornwall before the Summer bans come into place.
We’ve been taking a lot of bookings for doggy holidays in the Spring and Summer but still have host availability for all dates. If you want your regular host please don’t leave it too late to book your doggy friend in for his/her holiday.
We’ve just celebrated our 11th anniversary of homing holidaying dogs in Torbay and about to celebrate 10 years in Plymouth.
Here are some photos of our dogs enjoying their holidays in South Devon

The bad news is that the sun appears to have disappeared over our beaches along the Torbay Riviera, South Hams, Plymouth and South East Cornwall.
