“Golden Retrievers are my absolute favourite! What’s yours? I look forward to meeting you soon!”
Hi, My name is Tom and I am very proud to be the owner of Barking Mad dog sitting Purley and North East Surrey.
I look forward to meeting you and your dog. I will work hard to place them in the safe hands of our experienced dog loving hosts so that you can enjoy your holiday.
Once I get to know you and your dog I will ensure that I match them with the best dog loving host to suit them. After you have set off on your holiday I will send you a message letting you know that your dog has settled in well so that you can relax safe in the knowledge that your dog is having fun too.
I was a long standing customer of Barking Mad and I had the opportunity to become involved in running one of their territories I jumped at the chance to set up a family business. This meant i had to give up my tennis coaching where I was at the mercy of the elements either roasting or freezing on court depending on the season.
I have always owned Golden Retrievers. Meg is a mischievous white retriever who has been part of our family for the past 6 years and still behaves like a puppy! My first dog Amber was a typical Golden Retriever, everyone’s best friend. Amber was truly a globetrotting dog: she was born in Hong Kong, relocated to New York and then finally settled down in the UK. It was her experience in quarantine kennels that made me keen to find an alternative home for her whenever I went on holiday. I was introduced to Barking Mad and both Amber and Meg have had many enjoyable holidays with their wonderful hosts ever since.
When my suitcase is being packed, Meg focuses on the front door, eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Barking Mad car. She can barely contain herself and goes off on holiday to her host with hardly a backward glance.
I am always looking for new hosts so if you are a dog lover with a secure garden who would like to care for a dog and join our host community then I would love to hear from you. You will get all of the benefits of dog ownership but without the full time or financial commitment.
