Bamburgh Castle’s dog-sitting service proves a hit

Bamburgh Castle’s dog-sitting service has proved a hit with guests, with “hundreds of dogs being cared for”.

The service, run by Northumberland Dog Rescue volunteers, saw dogs being played with, walked and watered while their owners explored inside the Staterooms and Armstrong and Aviation Museum. Slots could pre-booked in advance for 30 or 60 minutes with suggested donations of £5 and £10.

The scheme was launched in May with a trial week and, as a result of its success, summer holiday dog sits were arranged and promoted.

Lee Fraser, of Northumberland Dog Rescue, told Northumberland Gazette: “Our fully trained, experienced, and insured dog-loving volunteers have done an incredible job caring for, and looking after them in all weathers, with hundreds of dogs being cared for.”

He added: “We are currently looking to offer the dog sitting service during the October school half term and, once finalised, details will be published on both the Bamburgh Castle and Northumberland Dog Rescue Charity’s website and social media channels.”
