September 2017

Summer may be over now, but we made sure that we saw the season off in style with a BBQ to thank all our host families for the fantastic work they do for us all year round. We really can’t thank them all enough.

Elsewhere, we’ve been out in the local community meeting all of you (and some of your furry friends) at our stand at Tesco Brighouse and our stall at the Morrisons charity carnival raising money for CLIC Sargent.

 

LOCAL EVENTS

 

We don’t have any community events coming up in October, but we’d like to remind you all to keep your pets indoors and safe around Halloween and Bonfire Night. If you get your dogs to join in with the fancy dress fun, we’d love to see photos.

 

HOLIDAY AVAILABILITY

 

We still have dog boarding spaces available for the October school half-term holidays. Christmas slots are filling up fast, so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.

 

HOST WITH US

 

We’re always looking for new host families to join us on our Barking Mad adventure, if you think this is something you’d be interested in please contact Mark on mark.abbott@barkingmad.uk.com

 

 August 2017

Is it just us or is the year whizzing by? August is always a busy time for us, and we have so many doggies wanting to have holidays with us that we’d love to welcome some new hosts into the fold here at Barking Mad Dog Care Huddersfield & Halifax. If you’re interested, we’ll leave some details at the bottom of this post.

We’re still managing to have our share of fun in the sun, though. We recently attending the Doggy Dash for Life in Beaumont Park to raise money for the Huddersfield and Halifax branch of the RSPCA.

Louise went to see the team at Head Office and took one of our dogs, Daisy May, with her. They had the lovely photo taken together. We hope you like it!
