Dog sitting services in Amersham

Because your holiday is better when you know your dog’s having a great time too.

Today, your dog climbed a hill, explored a wood and had an encounter with a squirrel, before flopping into his favourite bed and snoring loudly. Tomorrow he’s thinking of doing something similar.

Every holiday has its fond memories – why should your dog’s holiday be any different? Barking Mad gives gorgeous dogs great dog holidays in Amersham, Chesham and Gerrards Cross. We do it to provide an alternative to kennel care. And we do it because, when you know your dog’s having a fabulous holiday, it makes it easier for you to enjoy your holiday too.

Amersham dog-sitting, tailored for your dog
We know how important it is for your dog to feel right at home – and for you to feel confident in your choice of care. That’s why we take time to make the perfect match between dog and host.

We’ll find out their favourite treat and squeezy toy. We’ll make a note of what drives them mad (usually the postman). We’ll even take them for a trial stay, so they can get used to staying in their home from home.

Across Buckinghamshire, Barking Mad is giving dogs the loving, caring home from home they need while you’re away. Our wonderful hosts maintain your routines. They make your dog the centre of attention. They give your dog a holiday so good that dog owners trust us with their dogs again and again.

Who will my dog be staying with?

"It seems that Hattie enjoyed her stay with Viv.. she seemed quite tired when she got back. And I know that she enjoys lots of attention and ball throwing. She settled back into her normal routine quite happily.
Thanks Carole"

"Gus had another weekend with a new couple in an Oxfordshire village. He seemed happy to go and on his return, and some previous curious behaviour seems now to have very largely gone. Gus now knows Carole quite well and is happy to be with her."

"Tigger had a fantastic first stay with Barking mad. Considering his other experiences with previous dog sitters I was very happy to see that he was relaxed and happy. I really appreciated the text update and feedback on his return. Carole was great with him on first meeting and he was happy to go off with his new friend. He is looking forward to his next holiday!"

Chris Cowie - 30th Nov, 2015
"When our boys returned they couldn't stop talking about the good times they had at their hosts. It's very nice to receive comments from the hosts and our boys."

Louise Chitty - 9th Nov, 2015
"Our boys Grenville and Gryphon have had another lovely holiday with Lynn and Neil and are already looking forward to their next holiday in February. We are so happy to have discovered Barking Mad: we can go on holiday in the knowledge that the dogs are having as a good a time as we are!

Michael and Louise Chitty"
