Avoid going on holiday because you don’t want to leave you beloved pets? Need to make an emergency trip but can’t find someone to look after you dogs and cats? Don’t fancy the idea of outdoor kennels? Want a secure and loving place to board your pets? Or just need someone to exercise your dogs or horses? Barking Mad, the first pet sitting and dog walking service specifically for expats in Lunigiana, is happy to help.
Barking Mad is the inspiration of Emily Pratt, a 27 year old British girl, who has lived in Lunigiana for the last ten years. Emily, who is currently based at her mother’s home near Licciana Nardi, recently started caring for other people’s pets in her home (no outdoor kennels here),which is in the middle of woodland, and with no busy roads nearby, the location is just perfect for dog walking.
Emily is nuts about animals of all kinds. She has two dogs and two cats of her own and is an experienced horse rider. In the UK, she was part of a professional gymnastics on horseback team and worked as a groom.
Emily offers a range of services. She can look after your pets in her own home, she can stay in your home and look after them when you are away, or she can drop by and feed and exercise them. She can also administer medication. Emily is fluent in Italian so dealing with the vet, if there is an emergency, is no problem.
Here’s what one of her clients has to say about her:
“I was very fortunate in having the good luck to know Emily and to be able to ask her to look after my pets when I received an urgent call from the UK to “go now”. She is very caring, responsible and genuinely a great lover of animals. She has the experience of looking after her own pets, who are number one in all that matters, and is more than capable of ensuring the utmost wellbeing of your pets, either in her own home or in yours.
She is a most honest and straightforward person, and I have no hesitation in entrusting her with my home, which has a number of relatively valuable items of furniture, knick knacks etc.”
Give Emily a call on 3317202234 to discuss your requirements. She is happy to look after all types of animals, and will provide you with a quotation, as well as references if required.
