“My earliest memory is 3yrs old, lost with my faithful Staffie ‘Honey’. My protector! Since I’ve been blessed with Corgis, Ridgebacks, Danes, Mastiffs & Spaniels”
Barking Mad is a fantastic dog home boarding concept, with a win-win situation for all involved. I so wish this dog sitting service had been around a long time ago for my own dogs.
We will make sure your dog enjoys bespoke one to one luxury dog care as we meet you in person every time and love your dogs as our own.
I live in the lovely quiet little village of Kingsbarns, 7 miles along the East Neuk Coast from St. Andrews, Fife. Lucky me!
I’ve been in the service industry for nearly 30 years having worked in casinos, pubs, restaurants and art galleries, self-employed for most of that time. Running a pub in Tayport, Fife with the long hours and demanding work load, was taking its toll on me. Every day people were cycling, walking dogs, canoeing etc. right on my door step. I felt I was missing out on ‘life’!
I came across Barking Mad dog home boarding through my partner Jill, who had heard about them through her sister Carol. Carol had booked their little Yorkshire terrier in for a dog holiday with Francis Newman (who at the time, was the Glasgow South Franchisee). It transpired that Francis had been Jill’s flat mate at University and they had not seen each other for some years. The rest is history.
I grew up with dogs from an early age. My earliest memory is of me at about 3 years old, lost in the maize fields on my Dad’s farm in Rhodesia whilst out looking for him. Next to me were my tricycle and my faithful old Staffordshire bull terrier ‘Honey’. My protector! Thankfully, we were found some hours later, a little hungry and thirsty, and me with a teary, dusty face with the odd tongue lick mark from Honey.
