Dog-sitting service returns to Northumberland landmark

Bamburgh Castle, in Northumberland, is bringing back its dog sitting service inside its grounds during the summer holidays.

Dog owners will be able to leave their pets to by walked, watered and played with as they explore the parts of the ancient fortress which are off limits to dogs. The pet-sitting service will be managed by Northumberland Dog Rescue, with all money raised being kept by the charity.

Castle owner Francis Watson-Armstrong said: “Our dog sitting service is an excellent way of letting visitors explore inside the Castle together with peace of mind knowing their pet is in safe hands and being made a fuss of by wonderful trained volunteers from Northumberland Dog Rescue, who are also our chosen charity.

“Every penny taken from the dog sitting service goes directly to Northumberland Dog Rescue who do the most amazing work of taking in and rehoming unwanted dogs and giving them the best possible care and rehabilitation while they are in the shelter.”

Northumberland Dog Rescue will offer the dog-sitting service every Sunday and Monday from May until September. The charity asks for a donation of £5 for 30 minutes or £10 per hour.
