Jessie and Snowbelle who joined Barking Mad this Summer

We were delighted to welcome Jessie and her dog Snowbelle as new customers this Summer.  Jessie and her family recently relocated from the USA and were thrilled to find Barking Mad.  They wanted to ensure Snowbelle would be happy while they were away and really didn’t think kennels would suit her.  We matched Snowbelle up with host Elsie and she had a brilliant holiday while Jessie and the family were away on theirs.  Read more

 Barking Mad Wigan September news 2018

What a summer!

What an amazing and super busy Summer we’ve had here at Barking Mad Wigan! Our doggy summer holidays start as early as May, when our customers want to get away on holiday before the hustle and bustle starts of the school holidays and can run right through to the end of September.

During these months we’ve welcomed back dog guests who have stayed with our Barking Mad Wigan hosts before (and love them so much they have already booked for next year!) and we’ve also welcomed new members to our Barking Mad Wigan & St Helens family. Read more

Northumberland Summer Shows

We’ve had a busy summer here at Barking Mad Northumberland. As well, as transporting our 4 legged customers to and from their holiday homes and chatting with our 2 legged human customers about their holidays, we have also been busy at the local summer shows. I always like to support the local shows, and pop up my trade stand. At Barking Mad we don’t have anything to sell on the day, unlike other trade stands, but we do have a good chat to anyone and everyone about our service. It’s lovely to meet you all and say hello to your dogs too. We attended the very popular Warkworth Show in August and then the Swarland Show in early September. Both events were very busy, helped with fairly pleasant weather.. its always a gamble, who knows that the British weather will throw at us!

Back to School – Barking Mad South Northampton local news September 2018

So here we are, school holidays over, everything back to normal. All at Barking Mad hope you had a fun filled enjoyable summer, whether you went away or stayed at home.
The weather was fantastic which made for lovely long strolls in shady parks with the dogs, and the hosts enjoyed being out in the fresh air, able to walk with a purpose, with some doggy cuddles on the sofa when they got back home. Read more
