About Me

Hello!  My name is Rebecca and together with my team Susan and Gail, we run your local Barking Mad dog sitting service in Bolton and North West Manchester.

We have been based in the Bolton and North West area for 3 years and love the beautiful surroundings of our region!

I am your first point of contact and meet you and your dog to match up your dog with a loving host family. We are dedicated to ensuring your best friend has a wonderful dog holiday and in turn giving you peace of mind to enjoy your own holiday.

Our host families are very special people who have lots of experience and are hand selected to meet your dog’s needs and personalities! We have a very high level of repeat business and excellent referrals from our customers and hosts.


Susan and Gail started in the spring of 2015, and are also based locally in Bolton. We have all grown up with dogs in our life and have a great love of all animals. Myself and my husband Kris share our home with a Lhasa Apso Daisy. Susan has two Cocker spaniels, Archie and Blue. Gail hasn’t got her own at the moment, which is why ‘Barking Mad’ means so much to her.

Susan and Gail are out on the road in our ‘Barking Mad’ car safely collecting and chaffering your dogs on their holidays and making sure they are settled in their hosts home.

I wanted to set up my own business when both of my children started school, when I heard that a well-established franchise Barking Mad had come up for sale in my local area of Bolton we got so excited and enquired immediately, as it was too good an opportunity to miss out on. Having a background in communications I have managed to combine my love for people and my passion for dogs. It really is my dream job!

So, when you are planning your holiday. Don’t forget “dogs deserve a holiday too…’ Let us arrange that for you, we would love to hear from you on 01204 886062 or email rebecca.hamer@barkingmad.uk.com
