Barking Mad Dog Care is celebrating its 20th anniversary – and is still looking for franchisees.

The franchise, founded in 2000, provides dog sitters to look after pets in a home-from-home environment while their owners are away.
Jennifer Davies, from Colchester, Essex, has been a host dog sitter for Barking Mad for nearly 14 years and believes that her hobby has changed her life. 
“The best thing about hosting is unconditional love,” she said. “I always get a lovely good morning greeting with lots of tail wagging and I am much fitter.”
Barking Mad managing director Rachel Stewart said: “As Barking Mad celebrates its 20th anniversary, our proudest achievement is the happiness which holidaying dogs have brought to the lives of our host families and our franchise business owners, as well as providing peace of mind for our customers.
“We are looking to expand into new areas of the UK and Ireland and would love to hear from anyone who is interested in a unique, multi-award-winning dog care franchise opportunity.”
