At Barking Mad Dog Care we believe in supporting and encouraging our local franchise business owners every step of the way. Our annual conference, held at the stunningly located Lakeside Hotel, on the shores of Lake Windermere, gives us the opportunity to come together, recognising and celebrating our inspirational franchisees’ achievements. It is also a fantastic chance to share ideas and our combined wealth of experience.

Barking Mad Franchise

Barking Mad is an established and experienced franchisor and has won multiple awards including the Amazon Growing Business Awards UK, CBI, British Franchise Association (BFA) and HSBC bank. We are a full member of the BFA and the Pet Industry Federation within the Pet Services sector. Barking Mad continues to grow and following our acquisition by Franchise Brands plc Group in November 2016, we have a solid foundation to take the business to an even greater pedigree.

Pictured above are John and Elaine Warburton of Barking Mad Fife and Kinross, who were awarded the accolade of Most Improved Business of the Year, along with five other franchise owners. Barking Mad founder and MD, Lee Dancy said:

“Elaine and John Warburton are growing and nurturing an enviable Host Community. They are at the heart of their business and as a result their hosts are dedicated to them too. They took over an existing franchise and have grown the business consistently from the start, they truly are big achievers with a great future ahead of them.”

Elaine delightedly said:

“Our 14th conference is a proud celebration for Barking Mad and a lot of fun too. We love what we do and are privileged to work with such talented hard working people who have made us the UK’s brand leader. This year sees us ready to go live with our first ever TV advert which launches on the 15th May and has made the event even more special.”
