About Me

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.

I am your first point of contact and meet you and your dog to match up the very best dog loving host family to match your dog’s everyday needs.

We are dedicated to ensuring your best friend  has a wonderful dog holiday and in turn giving you peace of mind to enjoy your holiday.

Our host families are very special people who have lots of experience and love to give and as a result.

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. 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 best friends 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 we got so excited and enquired immediately, as it was too good an opportunity to miss out on. Having a background and love for people and with my passion for dogs it was the dream job for me.

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./ rebecca.hamer@barkingmad.uk.com
