Discover dog sitting! Dog sitting is a more suitable dog care solution for many dog owners like you. The thought of leaving your dog in kennels when you go on away or on holiday is often not a realistic, nor your preferred pet care choice. Your furry best friend deserves a tailored dog holiday!
Our network of Barking Mad dog sitters arrange holidays for dogs in our experienced dog loving host's homes where they can enjoy all the home comforts they are used to (including being spoilt rotten!). Our dog home boarding service means you can relax whilst you’re away, having complete peace of mind that your dog is being properly cared for.
We know how stressful it can be finding someone to take care of your dog while you’re away on holiday. You want to know your dog is safe and well looked after before you can properly relax. And the upheaval of you going away can be upsetting for your dog too, wondering where you are and dealing with changes to their routine.
Traditional dog kennels are often not the best solution as your dog could spend all day on their own or cooped up in a cage. There is a better choice for many dogs – it's dog sitting! Your canine companion will be able to enjoy a holiday of their own staying in the home of a trustworthy sitter. They’ll get to follow their normal routines, with their regular food and favourite toys, minimising stress and disruption. And you can rest easy knowing your pet is being looked after by a caring and affectionate dog sitter.
Our dog sitters are people who love dogs and understand them, and will take the very best care of your dog. Finding a great dog sitting service you can trust is not easy. We make it easy in that we do the job for you so you can enjoy your time off in complete relaxation.
No matter your plans, you can enjoy your holiday or time away from home without feeling guilty about leaving your dog behind. With the Barking Mad dog sitting service, you’ll know that your dog is having just as much fun as you are.

My labrador has just returned from holiday with 'Barking Mad'. Once again she had a great time with her host family with whom she has stayed several times in the past, and who love her to bits! I have complete peace of mind leaving her in the care of Barking Mad while I am away, and should like to thank Katherine and her team for the exceptional friendly and professional service they provide! Once again - WELL DONE BARKING MAD!!!!!"
