A MOTHER has won a national award for her work in organising more than 1,000 home-from-home holidays for dogs.
Tina Young, who lives with her daughter and professional photographer husband Brian in Guyzance, was awarded the Special Achievement Award at the recent annual Barking Mad conference held in the Lake District.
The recognition of Tina’s work as a Barking Mad franchisee comes as she enters her seventh year running the business from home.
Founder and managing director of the UK-wide organisation Lee Dancy said: “Tina is a very special person who is an absolute brilliant ambassador for our brand.
“Despite becoming a mother, undergoing a major operation and moving house in very close succession, Tina never lost her business focus. She’s bright, enthusiastic, and has a balanced approach to her business. On behalf of the entire team at head office we’d like to say how much we enjoy working with Tina and thank her for being such an important part of our network.”
Tina said: “I am absolutely delighted with the award. I really love what I do. To receive this recognition makes me feel very proud.
“It’s such a positive, enjoyable business to be involved with. I always get such lovely comments from dog owners who are relieved to know that whilst they’re away, their dogs are being loved and looked after, just like being at home.”
