About Me

Hi, I’m so pleased to be the owner of your local Dog Care service, Barking Mad Wigan.

I live in Wigan with my husband, Lee, our 2 teenage daughters, Chloe and Megan and our 2 rescue dogs, Mollie & Milo.

Having spent over 20 years in retail, I wanted a change and my last job made me realise how much I loved working with dogs and their parents – Barking Mad came along, it was the paw-fect opportunity and here I am into my 3rd year of providing high-quality care for dogs in the Wigan Borough.

Dog Care in Wigan

I’m devoted to ensuring all dogs in my care receive the best, whether that be home boarding,  dog walking or dog minding, I am absolutely devoted to your dog and it shows when I am greeted with waggy tails and slobbery kisses when I arrive.

If you’re looking for an alternative to kennels, a truly home-from-home holiday for your dog, solo dog walks for that one-to-one attention, dog minding in the comfort of your own home or frequent daily drop-in visits whilst you’re at work or away, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

To meet customer demand, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic, we are happy to be able to offer the following services;

Drop-In Home Visits – from £7 – I visit your dog within your home for 15, 30 minutes or 60 minutes to check all is OK, replenish water and food, let them out for fresh air or a walk, and always make sure there is time for cuddles!

Dog Minding – from £35 – I stay with your dog for 4 hours or more during the day, in their own home. This service will especially suit puppies, seniors, dogs with separation anxiety, who have recently had surgery or dogs who have never been left before.

Solo Dog Walking – from £10 – Choose 30 minutes or 60 minutes solo dog walk within your local area, at your dog’s pace, on lead or off-lead.

Play Dates – from £10 – If your dog is sociable, they can join in on our Play Date sessions, which take place in a fully enclosed, private field allowing them to run free with a maximum of 4 dogs for an hour.

Pet Taxi – from £6.50 – We’re available to chauffeur your dog anywhere you can’t; to the groomers, vets, daycare, relatives. Our car is fully insured, kitted out, air-conditioned, and very comfortable – sorry, no hoomans!
