Working with Dogs is Amanda’s Dream Job

New Barking Mad Knutsford dog sitting service

Amanda is delighted to have become a Barking Mad dog sitting professional

New business owner Amanda loves being Barking Mad!

Barking Mad Dog Care is delighted to welcome our newest dog sitting franchise owner, Amanda Prentice from near Holmes Chapel in Cheshire. Amanda is enjoying working with dogs, bringing the one to one holiday service to her local area and says:

“I spent the last few years in a training role, driving around the country and always rushing back to see my dogs, so when the opportunity arose to become part of the Barking Mad family, I jumped at the chance.  Now I can spend precious time at home with my family and dogs and meet like-minded people to arrange some fabulous doggy holidays.”

As a dog owner, Amanda had always struggled to find care for her own four legged best friends when she needed to go away. (She and husband, Chris, have a golden doodle called Hugo and a very cheeky Cotton de Tulear called Harvey.) With no family living close by and the thought of leaving her dogs in kennels unbearable, the Barking Mad concept really appealed. After attending a comprehensive training course at Barking Mad HQ in the  Lake District, Amanda launched Barking Mad Knutsford and is currently living the dog lovers’ dream.
