February 2016

As usual the year has started off very busy with lots of customers getting in touch to book their dogs in for their holidays. It’s always a good idea to get organised and book your dog in for their holiday, when you are arranging yours. We do get booked up, especially at busy times, and we don’t want to disappoint your dog. As we always say at Barking Mad….dogs deserve a holiday too.

September 2015

We had a lovely day out at the Grinshill Animal Rescue Dog Show on Sunday at Shawbirch and met lots of lovely dogs and their owners. Grinshill Rescue raised the amazing sum of £3,192.48. They now need more space to enable them to cope with the ever increasing number of rescue dogs and have launched an appeal to raise funds. This is the Buy a Brick Appeal. Bricks cost £35 and can be personalised with two lines or 16 characters. For more information visit their website www.grinshillanimalrescue.co.uk.
