If this all sounds familiar, you could be exactly who we’re looking for to join our team of talented and successful home dog sitting / boarding franchisees across the UK.

Who are we?

Barking Mad is an award-winning business, established in 2000 to provide an alternative to traditional dog boarding kennels.

We deliver a personalised, first class home dog boarding service, giving our customers the assurance that their canine companion is enjoying the best possible care in their absence.

We operate across the UK through a network of carefully selected and expertly trained franchise owners.

In each franchise area we have a team of highly experienced host families. Our home dog boarding hosts come from a whole variety of backgrounds, but all have one thing in common; they are all passionate dog lovers.

Barking Mad is an award winning business, driven by the desire to change the face of dog care.

We were awarded the prestigious HSBC Franchisor of the Year Award in 2013.

Why are we so successful?

Since the launch of our home dog boarding franchise business in 2002, we have carefully developed our model to ensure we are meeting the growing needs of our expanding network. Our franchise model is robust and successful.

The key reasons for our success are:

• Profitability: Our home dog boarding services are required by our customers 365 days of the year. All of our franchisees rely on Barking Mad as their main income stream.

• Growth Market: 24% of all UK households own a dog and ownership continues to grow. Trends have changed and many people are now looking for an alternative to the traditional boarding kennels.

• Professional Service: We pride ourselves on our high standards and professionalism. We are dedicated to arranging home dog boarding in genuinely caring environments. Our success is not only due to the outstanding care all dogs receive with us, but also as a result of the personal service we provide. We do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach and provide an entirely individual service to all our customers and their dogs – every time.

• First Class Franchisee Support: This is the area in which we truly excel. We have a highly skilled team to help our franchisees grow and develop their business. Our support isn’t limited; we provide first class training and unbeatable support throughout the life of our franchisees’ businesses. Our tried and tested business model, together with our individual and national support network, ensures our franchisees always receive the support they require.

• Innovative Systems: We have implemented systems which bring time-saving and financial benefits to our network. We continuously look for new and exciting ways to improve our franchise business.

• Customer Contact Centre: At Franchise HQ we have a dedicated team dealing with all inbound calls Monday to Friday 9:00am to 5:00pm. This means our franchisees are free to do what they do best; and we never miss a call.

• Brand Presence: Our website is professional, informative and always up to date. Each franchisee has their own local branch section. We set up and maintain our franchisees’ entire online presence, including social media.

Our franchise model stands out in terms of professionalism, brand exposure and the support we provide.

Our home dog boarding franchisees reap the benefits of an enjoyable, profitable, flexible home-based business.

If you are motivated to become a franchisee with our award-winning business, come and be Barking Mad with us.
