Discover Bromley and Croydon’s dog holiday care service.
There’s something rather special about the people who run Barking Mad franchises across the country. Almost without exception, they didn’t start out with plans to run their own dog sitting business. They started by needing someone to look after their dog while they were away.
Take Tina Darlington. Tina is the person who these days matches gorgeous dogs with wonderful dog hosts. She discovered us when she was searching for dog holiday care in Kent for her own dog, Oscar. She was so impressed, she joined us!
Dog sitting in Orpington, Bromley and Croydon
Barking Mad dog sitting works like this: Tina works with you to find out what your dog likes, dislikes and needs. From regular medication to staying clear of the postman we’ll learn everything we need to find your dog the perfect host while you’re away.
We’ll chauffeur your dog to his or her host, and we’ll arrange a trial stay before you leave if you think that will make life easier.
While you’re away, your dog will enjoy a world of new sights, smells and adventures, balanced by the reassurance of having lots of familiar favourites around too. There’ll be new walks, but a familiar bed waiting at the end of it. A new garden to explore, but familiar food waiting indoors. And we’ll keep favourite toys and playthings around, so your dog will have its paws firmly under the table in no time.
That’s what makes Barking Mad’s approach to dog sitting in Orpington, Bromley and Croydon different. Because we know that a happier holiday for your dog means you enjoy a happier holiday too.

Dog ownership isn’t for you. Oh you’d love to own a(nother) dog, but work, family, money or other commitments mean you’d never be able to offer the full time care a dog needs.
But there are some weeks every year when you absolutely could bring a dog into your life. That’s where dog hosting can help.
Dog hosting is perfect for people who love and know how to care for dogs, but can’t commit to full time ownership. And we’ve got dog hosting opportunities in Beckenham, Bromley and across Kent right now.
