Bamburgh Castle launches pet-sitting service

Bamburgh Castle, in Northumberland, is offering a new pet sitting service for dogs inside its grounds.

The service, which will be run by Northumberland Dog Rescue volunteers, will see dogs being played with, walked and watered while their owners explore inside the Staterooms and Armstrong and Aviation Museum.

Bamburgh Castle Visitor Services Manager Karen Larkin said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Northumberland Dog Rescue volunteers to provide this new pet-sitting service for dogs over the summer holidays. It means their owners can go inside the Castle staterooms together and explore other indoor areas of the Castle where dogs are not able to go, due to the fragile nature of our collections.”

She added: “The pet-sitting service is being run inside the castle grounds by fully trained and experienced volunteers from Northumberland Dog Rescue. Every penny raised from the service will go directly to the charity which is dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming dogs in our area.”

Northumberland Dog Rescue will be offering the pet-sitting service on Sundays and Mondays from 30 July – 28 August and on Wednesday 16 and 23 August. Slots can be pre-booked in advance to for 30 or 60 minutes with suggested donations of £5 and £10. Sessions will also be available to book on the day, subject to availability.
