The North West Norfolk branch of home-from-home dog care business is joining in celebrations to mark the company’s 20th anniversary. Tania Stowe, of Hunstanton, set up her branch of Barking Mad in 2016 and has seen it go from strength to strength. Last year she received recognition from the business for achieving exceptional financial growth.
She was also recognised for her role in the community having set upTea with Tails in collaboration with Hunstanton Methodist Church and sponsoring Heacham Minors Under 9s Football Team.
She plans to mark her franchise’s fourth birthday along with the parent company’s 20th with a celebration party later this year.
She said: “Our proudest achievement is the happiness which holidaying dogs have brought to the lives of our host families.
“We match friendly dogs to hosts’ preferences and lifestyle, for their holidays and short breaks. It’s ideal for retirees, home-based workers and teachers in school holidays.
“We take care of everything, including chauffeuring dogs to our hosts’ homes with all their essentials and providing 24/7 support. Hosts experience all the benefits of dog companionship without any of the emotional or financial responsibilities of full-time pet ownership.”
She said it has been scientifically proven that patting and walking dogs can help people to feel more relaxed and less anxious. This makes a huge difference to emotional and physical well-being. Those caring for a dog are also less likely to be socially isolated.
