Barking Mad Banbury Dog Boarding Local News – July News 2019
Hi there pup lovers!
It’s that time of the month again when we share what has been, and what will be going on with Barking Mad Banbury dog boarding. Local dog sitters in Shipston on Stour, Moreton, Chipping Campden and all Oxfordshire and Warwickshire villages in between. As I write from Barking Mad Banbury HQ outside is hot, hot, hot so do please remember all the rules about heat and the drastic effects it can have on your dog. July has been extremely busy welcoming both new dogs to our fold along with lots of lovely new Banbury dog boarders. We can’t wait for them all to meet for their first dog holiday’s together.
Talking of our local dog boarders, we organised our first coffee morning for hosts mid-July. It was a super event and a great chance for our dog boarders in Chipping Campden to meet our dog sitters in Shipston and Banbury. We can’t wait for the next one in September.

Barking Mad Banbury Dog Boarding Local News – May News 2019
Hello everyone, thanks from dropping-by to see the latest news from Barking Mad Banbury dog home boarding services. Last weekend we spent the day helping Dogs for Good at their ‘Picnic by the Lake’ in Northamptonshire. It was beautiful sunny afternoon, at a beautiful spot and was such a joy to see so many supporters and their lovely dogs come along. At least £3,000 was raised on the day, plus we even got to advertise our local dog sitting service in Banbury.
We’ve also been out and about marketing for local dog sitting hosts. Blockley was warm, welcoming and charming village to spend a day and turns out to be the main location for the ‘Father Brown’ TV series. We got a picture of the crew at work. Our Barking Mad Banbury car drew some attention too and we even had people stopping us on the street to ask about our local home boarding service.
Summer is definitely here which means lots of wonderful dog shows, village fetes and fairs will soon be upon us. We at Barking Mad love these and we have our trusty marquee ready to go for our first event in Bloxham on June 8th. Not only will we be sharing information on dog boarding in Bloxham, we’ll also be awarding prizes at the Dog Show, and raising money for Dogs for Good! Come say Hi!

During the middle of February, we were invited to help the marvellous Dogs for Good charity at their Banbury HQ. They were expecting the busiest event of its kind with lots of dog owners, socialisers and their guests getting together over afternoon tea. Myself, Andrea and two colleagues were deployed to the catering department and spent a wonderful afternoon meeting these charity heroes along with beneficiaries of the wonderful work they do. It was both inspiring and wonderful fun and we are so proud to be part of this fantastic assistance dog charity in Banbury. To learn more visit, https://www.dogsforgood.org/

A new team member, the New Pet Care laws and a selection of doggies who’ve recently taken holidays with us. Barking Mad Banbury – November News 2018
Welcome to our latest local dog boarding news for the Banbury, Shipston, Moreton and Chipping Campden areas.
First off, we’d like to welcome Lisa to our Barking Mad Banbury team. A dog owner for years, Lisa is already making a fantastic contribution to our dog sitting services. Not only is she a marketing whiz, you’ll also see her out and about in ‘Mutley,’ our dedicated Barking Mad Banbury, dog transport ‘limo.’
Sadly, Lisa is very camera shy, but we are hoping to grab a candid snap of her to post soon. In the meantime here’s a shot of ‘Mutley’ taking a pooch on its dog holiday in Brailes.
We here at Barking Mad Banbury wholeheartedly embrace the new Animal and Pet Care legislation
Since October 1st and the introduction of the Animals Activities Licensing Act (AAL) we’ve been completing and suppling all our new paperwork to our relevant Local Authorities. As we offer dog boarding in Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire there’s plenty to get through. But, it’s absolutely worth it!
We already boast the highly esteemed ISO 9001 quality assurance, plus Primary Authority through the PIF with City of London. Given the increased number of dog sitting options out there and the change in attitude to pet care, any new positive legislation relating to dog sitting is wholly welcomed by us.
At Barking Mad we’re extremely happy and thrive on having the highest standards of dog care.
Finally for this month here’s a montage of some of the wonderful doggies who who’ve taken a holiday with us recently. They’ve all been an absolute joy to take care of and our dog sitters in Banbury, Moreton, Shipston and Chipping Campden can’t wait to have them all back to stay.
New Pet Care laws, plus what’s been happening and what’s coming up for Barking Mad Banbury – October news 2018
Thanks for stopping by. It’s great to see you checking in on all our local dog boarding news from the Banbury, Shipston, Moreton and Chipping Campden areas.
With Christmas fast approaching our annual household competition has begun to see which of us witnesses the first Christmas advert on TV (the winner gets whatever is being advertised…within reason). We’ve also noticed that shops and supermarkets already stocking-up on festive goodies. So, with summer dog shows over it’s time for us to start planning for Christmas markets and fairs. Sharing the word on dog sitting in Shipston, Chipping Campden, Moreton and Banbury is an absolute joy for us and we always love to meet new doggies and their hooman companions on our travels.
As always, we’ll also be raising money for our local Banbury dog charity, ‘Dogs for Good.’ The flannel puppies we’ve been selling to raise money have been flying out and we’ll be making more with a Yuletide twist for our November and December fair dates.
Following the New Animals Activities Licensing Act (AAL) introduced on October 1, we are currently preparing all our paperwork for our dog boarding in Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. Barking Mad are in complete agreement with the new legislation, recognising that these days dog owners consider their waggy-tailed ones to be family members and not just pets.
So we’re more than happy in having our highest standards of nationally recognised pet care (ISO 9001 quality assurance and Primary Authority through Pet Industry Federation with the City of London) updated and confirmed by law. Bring it on!
That’s all from Andrea and David for now, thanks for joining us. Next month we’ll be introducing a new face to the Barking Mad Banbury dog sitting team, as well as sharing pictures of new dogs and dog-loving hosts on our books. See you then.

Local shows, plus say hello to some of our new doggies and hosts – August news 2018
Well it’s been quite the August. Lots of dog shows and village fetes where we got to meet loads of lovely dogs and new dog sitters in the Banbury area. We also managed to raise even more money for our chosen charity, Dogs for Good. So a big thank you to one and all for all your donations, interest and help.
Our next dog show promises to be something quite special. On Sunday 9th of September we’ll be back in Brailes for Mila’s Funday. It’s a show totally dedicated to dogs that promises to be a whole heap of fun. Plus, it’s another chance for Andrea and I to share information on bespoke dog sitting in Banbury, Shipston, Moreton and Chipping Campden. Let’s hope our marquee stays firmly in place this time, unlike Tysoe Show where, caught in a gust of wind, it took-off and landed on top of a plants display. As the kids say, Awwwkwwward.
Time to say hello to just some of our new furry friends who’ve just returned from their Barking Mad Banbury holidays. Every single one is an absolute delight and our local dog boarders in Banbury and Shipston have all found it hard to say goodbye at the end of their holiday.
And finally, we’re really happy to introduce Brian and Jenny, the latest family to join our community of host dog sitters near Chipping Campden. A lovely couple with decades of dog experience, they not only boast a charming English country garden but 2,000 acres of private country estate for holidaying dogs to enjoy and explore.
Barking Mad Banbury back on the road – July news 2018
After weeks away from the village show circuit we’re really looking forward to unfurling our marquee and getting those tent pegs straightened and polished. We’re itching again to share the word on dog sitting in Shipston, Chipping Campden, Moreton and Banbury and have three dog shows lined up this August. We hope you can make it to one of them, especially if you’re thinking of becoming a dog sitter in the local area, or you want to discuss a dog home stay as an alternative to kennels. As always, we’ll also be raising money for our local Banbury dog charity, ‘Dogs for Good.’
First up is in Brailes on Saturday 11th Aug. Our first time and quite a show by all accounts.
One week later we’ll be pitching-up at Tysoe Show. Our lovely, home village promises a great day out and we can’t wait to meet old friends and new to share how Barking Mad Banbury can help with their pet sitting needs.
Next we’re heading to Ilmington Dog Show on August Bank Holiday. Set between Shipston and Chipping Campden, the dog show takes place on Monday, August 27th and among many great attractions is a fly-by of two Spitfires! Now that’s very exciting.
And finally, here’s a small sample of lovely new pooches on their first Barking Mad Banbury holiday. Throughout July, dogs from Shipston, Moreton, Banbury and Chipping Campden have all had an amazing time and given our local dog sitters such wonderful memories. We hope to see them (and you) again real soon.

Barking Mad Banbury and our chosen charity Dogs for Good – April 2018
A couple of weeks ago we were fortunate enough to be invited to Dogs for Good HQ just outside Banbury. Whilst there, we enjoyed presentations by co-ordinators and trainers on the incredible work they do. We also grabbed a chat with the charming CEO Mr Peter Gorbing who spoke passionately about his belief in the therapeutic power of dogs.
It was great too, to hook up with fellow Barking Mad Milton Keynes franchisee Sue Garrett. Sue has been incredibly helpful and a real rock to rely on during our first few weeks being Barking Mad in Banbury. Many thanks, Sue! Tea and cake followed (yay!) and we were able to meet with some of the people being helped by their Dogs for Good pooch. Each story touched our hearts and we saw first hand just how much these extraordinary dogs can be life changing.
Next up for Barking Mad Banbury is volunteering on the Dogs for Good Fun Day on Saturday 16th June at Stoneleigh Park. Do look out for our stall too. Here, we will have lots of information to share with you about our home from home dog sitting services covering Banbury, Shipston-on-Stour, Chipping Campden and everywhere in between.
