Bury St Edmunds dog owners needed as Barking Mad launches in town

A dog-sitting service has launched in Bury St Edmunds, giving residents the chance to look after a pooch for free.

Barking Mad has set-up in the area this week, after the online pet-matching scheme proved a success in other towns. It sees owners pay the company to source a host, before going away. Barking Mad will then procure a small fee to the short-term owner to cover costs.

Steve Lake has bought into the franchise, which he hopes will allow dog lovers, who are unable to own a pet, to enjoy the experience.

"We hope hosts will see a boost to their own wellbeing," said Mr Lake, who left a career in distribution to start-up.

Mr Lake meets potential owners - who can state a preference for the kind of dog they wish to take.
