About Me

Hello, my name is Richard and I am delighted to have been running the successful Ashford Franchise since October 2015, which includes the towns of Folkestone, Ashford, Tenterden and the surrounding villages.


Dog lovers come to Barking Mad for a superior alternative to either kennels or house sitting. Our customers require the very best dog holidays and I make it my mission to provide it, every time. I select the ideal host family from my portfolio of trusted dog lovers and provide accommodation in a warm, friendly home environment with one to one dog care.

I have lived in the village of Egerton since 1994 with my wife Dee. We used to have a retired Greyhound Suki that we rescued from racing kennels and provided a great retirement. We wanted another dog but busy lives meant that we could not be certain to have the time to dedicate to one. I contacted Barking Mad with a view to becoming a host for some doggie fun in the summer of 2015 and found the franchise business was for sale. Hosting was great but working full time with dogs was better!

Exercise and feeding routines are maintained. Barking Mad offers complete piece of mind for the owners while their four legged friends are enjoying their holiday too.

So call me today and I’ll happily come over to meet you and discuss the best possible way to care for your dog when you go away. Alternatively if you fancy becoming one of our dedicated hosts, we would be delighted to welcome you to our select clan!

I'm also looking to provide an even better service for my customers and am looking for someone to invest in the business and work with me. Would you like to be Barking Mad? Interested in a rewarding career working with dogs? Please get in touch.
