Elaine is a dog lover at heart and growing up always had a family cocker spaniel. When she moved to her first home she had two Alsatians Jo & Jake. But it wasn’t long before 2 became 15, when Jo had a litter of cheeky pups, that brought a lot of joy. Since then she has also owned two Border Collies. Riggs and Bex who were brothers that, when she went to the farm to see them. She couldn’t bear to separate, so she came home with 2 dogs instead of one!
When the chance came to join Barking Mad in 2014, she simply couldn’t say no – Elaine says “I’m proud to be part of a very professional team with my husband who is also passionate about dogs & delivering true first class service. I am dedicated to making sure that every dog has his (holi)day & all my hosts are true dog lovers who are just as passionate as me”.
Now she loves living just outside of Scotlandwell with her husband, gorgeous daughter, 4 chickens, 2 cats, 2 rabbits & 3 super Springer Spaniels – Woody, Shadow, & Bracken – who all have boundless amounts of energy and love nothing more than romping over Bishop Hill, up East Lomond or round Loch Leven as well as Willow the cheeky wee Cocker Spaniel, Milla our lovey scruffball Miniature Schnauzer we inherited in 2019 and Skye the latest addition to the family who is a rescue from Romania.
John shares Elaine’s passion for pooches and he also grew up with a family cocker spaniel. At the start of 2016 he took the opportunity to become Elaine’s Barking Mad partner, as he says “it’s great that we share a love of dogs and have the chance to work together to make sure we deliver the best possible experience for every dog who holidays with us and for all our amazing hosts”.
