DOG sitting specialists Barking Mad Maidenhead & Marlow are sponsoring their second 'Dogs for Good' assistance puppy - named Wendy.

The money raised through events such as coffee mornings and dog walks will support gorgeous Wendy, a yellow Labrador cross retriever, throughout her important first year with a puppy socialiser.

Dogs for Good, formerly known as Dogs for the Disabled, trains dogs to help children and adults with all sorts of challenges, including autism, physical disabilities, special educational needs and dementia.

Barking Mad has worked with the charity since October 2017 and also sponsors a 10 month old Labrador called Prince, who has recently represented the charity at several Dogs for Good fundraising talks.

Tim Organ of Barking Mad Maidenhead & Marlow said: “We are delighted that Barking Mad’s fundraising efforts have been rewarded with the opportunity to support and train another puppy. As our home from home dog sitting service goes from strength to strength in the Maidenhead, Marlow, Slough and surrounding areas, we are honoured to be able to help contribute to the amazing work which this inspirational charity undertakes.”

Barking Mad will be continuing to raise money for Dogs for Good to train more desperately needed assistance dogs throughout 2019, by holding local events and via their online fundraising page, They will also be partnering with the charity at Crufts from 7-10 March to further spread the word.
