“I love meeting new and existing customers, hosts and of course all of those wonderful doggies!”
Hello, my name is Luis Saraiva and I bring you the Barking Mad dog sitting service in Surrey.
Having the opportunity to provide a one to one dog care service that takes all of your worries away while you are on your vacation or business trips is our mission.
We place your dog with a loving host family specifically matched to the needs of your best friend.
We specialise in reassuring you that your dogs are being cared for in a loving, fun environment, as you would want them to be. May I say, your dogs will be having a ‘woof’ of a time on their dog holiday!
Our one to one dog home boarding service covers the KT postcodes. I live in Cobham, within walking distance of Painshill Park, with my wife Karen.
Dogs have always been a part of our lives in England and Portugal, where we have had a ‘house full’ of four legged friends. From a Jack Russell to a Labrador, not to mention a Portuguese Serra d’Aires and a miniature Schnauzer, we have had 7 in total and even brought three back from Portugal.
After our last dog died, our young daughter kept asking when we could get another one. I suggested to her that maybe we could first become a host family, looking after dogs for other people, so I contacted the Barking Mad franchisee for our area who informed me that he was looking to sell the business. Since I was looking for a suitable venture, interesting and stimulating, with a concept that had affinity with our love of animals, especially dogs. One thing led on to another and here I am, the proud owner of my own business – that was back in February 2012, and I haven’t looked back since!
I hope to welcome you very soon into the Barking Mad world!
