‘Once you have shared a life with a dog, you can’t imagine a life without one.’ 

About Me

Hi, my name is Steve Lake. 

As far as I can tell, dogs have only one fault – their lives are far too short. In my opinion, that’s even more reason to give them the pampering they deserve. 

After many years of a management career in distribution, I gradually began to adopt the urge for a change in lifestyle and to work with one of my passions, dogs. This heralded the start of my venture into dog holidays with Barking Mad Bury St Edmunds.

Why should Humans have all the fun? 

I have a love of all animals and the Natural World, but my first love has always been dogs. Dogs have evolved to complete a family home . They offer unconditional love for very little in returnThey are quite simply ‘Mans best friend. 

Our aim at Barking Mad is to provide an unrivalled, professional and reassuring service, second to none. We alleviate anxiety for the concerned dog owner and give their precious dog the best dog home boarding holiday ever. In return, our customers dogs help to fulfil and enrich the lives of potential hosts in their preferred role of dog sitting. 

Many people wonder what the role of a dog sitter is. It is in fact a very simple and rewarding concept. There are many reasons why people choose to host and offer doggy boarding. You can rest assured that all of our hosts are experienced dog lovers who meet our strict criteria to care for your little (and some not so little) ones in a similar environment to their home. 

We know you will have many questions, so for all those queries and peace of mind, just give me a call for a relaxedno obligation chat. 

I am honoured to have joined such a professional and successful company as Barking Mad. Bury St Edmunds is one of the latest areas to offer this premium service in dog home boarding. If you have just heard of us and you need further convincing of our service, check out our reviews via Trust Pilot. We are proud to be the UK’s most trusted dog sitters. 

Currently, I am sadly ‘without dog’ and although I am reliably informed that this is not a medical condition, it does sometimes feel that way. Luckily, I have many doggy buddies who I love to spend time with and I am looking forward to meeting your wonderful dogs too, along with lovely new human customers and hosts.
