Dog Home Boarding in Exeter

My dog care service has grown and flourished and I have met many fantastic dog-loving customers and hosts.

I have also learned so much about so many breeds and made some great doggy friends. They recognise me as the ‘dog taxi’ come either to take them on their dog holiday or to take them home again.

I live in a period cottage in the beautiful village of Rawridge with my husband Paul and daughter Georgia. My cat Sniff and my gorgeous dogs Stanley and Hugo. I have lived here for 6 years and in East Devon since my childhood. I have a real love of the area, the countryside and the way of life.

Previously a teacher for ten years. I began to find that the demands of the profession were increasing and placing more and more stress into my life. Combined with suffering a major health issue. I realised that my life had to change, so I bought the Barking Mad franchise for Exeter, Mid and East Devon. Why wouldn’t I? It offered me my own business with a network support. Whilst working with dogs – a passion in my life, flexibility, challenge, working from home.

If you have a dog who needs a part-time friend or you don’t have a dog and find your life a little empty, why not think about becoming a host. It is a wonderful role, sharing your love, expertise and care without the full-time commitment of a full-time dog.

I do look forward to meeting you soon to share with you the wonderful world of Barking Mad.
