About Me

Hello my name is Tracy Johnston and I am the proud owner of the Barking Mad dog sitting service in Cleveland, Darlington & Teesside areas.

Barking Mad offers a home from home dog boarding service where your beloved dog is cared for in a loving family home that suits your dogs needs.

We provide the very best one to one care rated No.1 and 5* by our customers via TrustPilot.


I live in Hartlepool with my husband Tim, our two sons Liam & Oliver and three adorable but crazy black miniature Schnauzers.  Millie is the old lady of the pack but she still loves to go on long walks and loves to chase 2 year old brother & sister Tetley and Luna.

I first heard of Barking Mad by chance after overhearing a conversation between two people. Being a dog lover myself I asked them for some information and I was handed a leaflet.  After reading this leaflet and visiting the Barking Mad website I was amazed to find the franchise in my area was available. It didn't take me long to decide this would be the perfect job for me as I am mad about dogs, enjoy travelling and most of all meeting new people.

Before starting this new venture I was practice manager in my husbands dental surgery for the past 17 years.  This was a very sociable job, dealing with members of the public and managing his staff, something which I enjoyed very much.  As my husband was retiring from dentistry and selling his surgery I was looking for a new challenge and Barking Mad came along at just the right time.

If you are a dog owner wishing to find that special holiday home for your dogs while you are away or if you are interested in becoming a host please contact me on 01429 860846 or send me an email tracy.johnston@barkingmad.uk.com

I do look forward to hearing from you!
