Everyone at Barking Mad Dog Care is celebrating this week after being awarded the title of 'Best Sitter' by public vote, in the Dog Friendly Awards 2017! The Dog friendly Awards, held in association with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle, are described as:
"The public's opportunity to recognise and reward pet and non-pet businesses and places that go the extra mile for the benefit of the UK's 9.4 million dogs and their owners."
Barking Mad founder and Managing Director, Lee Dancy, enthuses,
"I was so proud to accept this award on behalf of everyone involved with Barking Mad. To be publicly voted as the best dog sitting service in the UK is such a great honour. It really is a testament to the hard work, professionalism and enthusiasm of our network of local business owners and hosts. We all absolutely love what we do and that simply shines through. I'd also like to say a huge thank-you to everyone who took the time to vote for us, it really does mean so much."
What are the Dog Friendly Awards?
Founded in 2003, Dog Friendly helps businesses to welcome responsible dog owners. They give members access to the largest database of dog friendly places to visit, safe in the knowledge that their dogs will be as welcome as their owners. Dog Friendly has spent many years working alongside the Kennel Club as part of their Be Dog Friendly campaign to encourage places across the UK to adopt a dog friendly policy.
The Most Dog Friendly Pet Businesses section of the awards is supported by My Pet People.co.uk, the public facing website from the Pet Industry Federation (PIF), the UK's largest trade association for pet business. The best dog sitters, dog groomers, dog kennels, dog walkers and pet shop are all chosen by public vote.
Why do our customers rate us 5*?
At Barking Mad, our 5* Trustpilot rating also places us in prime position, as the UK's most trusted dog sitter. We put our success down to the fact that we treat every single dog as an individual and offer a bespoke service tailored to your pet's requirements. Our personally executed host checking and vetting process has evolved over our seventeen years in business and ensures that every dog is matched with a holiday carer who is perfect for them. It's no problem if your dog is very young or old (as long as they are fully vaccinated), requires medication or has health issues. We have hosts to cater for a wide variety of breeds and sizes but all dogs receive plenty of love, care and attention and live as part of the family.
