Dog Holidays & Holiday Care in Cornwall

Booking a holiday? Book your dog one while you’re at it…

When you’re booking any holiday there are a few things you simply can’t do without. The accommodation has to be great. The care you receive has to be…well, genuinely caring. You want relaxation, adventure and great food. The odd tummy rub doesn’t go amiss either. At Barking Mad, that’s exactly the sort of holiday we plan to give your dog.

Barking Mad provides 5* holiday care for dogs whose owners are enjoying a well-earned break. There’s round the clock care, and every home comfort is close at hand.

We’re dog owners too. We know you worry whether your dog’s happy while you’re away – because we used to do exactly the same. That’s why we’ll take the time to get to know you and your dog before you jet off. We’ll even arrange a trial stay so you know your dog will have (almost) as much fun as you will.

Cornwall dog-sitting, tailored for your dog
In amongst the excitement of new surroundings, new smells and new adventures, there’ll be plenty that’s familiar to make your dog feel at home.

Our experienced hosts will maintain your routines. Same food. Same exercise. Favourite toys. Familiar bed. So when you and your dog are reunited, there are no bad habits to break.

Owners in Truro, Newquay and Penzance choose our dog holiday services again and again. Many have used us so often their dogs think of us as a home from home. We think yours will too.

Who will my dog be staying with?
Our Barking Mad franchisees and hosts are spread right across the UK. In Cornwall you (and your dog) will receive the warmest of welcomes from Mandy Turton.

Mandy knows all too well the problems of trying to arrange dog-sitting. “I know from experience with my Cockerpoo that every dog has individual requirements and needs. It’s my aim to ensure that the needs of my customers’ dogs are catered for at all times.”

For dog sitting and dog holiday care in Truro, Penzance & Cornwall please talk to Mandy.

Love your holiday - by making sure your dog loves its holiday too. Call Barking Mad.

There’s no paperwork, money or insurance to deal with (we’ll do that for you). All we want our dog hosts to do is concentrate on giving their guests the most enjoyable holiday imaginable.

"We have used Barking Mad on many occasions for our lively Cockerpoo since he was quite young, as he did not enjoy the experience of kennels. Where possible Mandy has tried to host him with the same family so he feels settled quite soon (as he is a Mummy's boy)! Receiving photos of him whist away is so very reassuring, as is the postcard telling us what he has been up to whilst away.Being able to have him returned to us as soon as we are home (even on a Sunday) is brilliant. I could not recommend this service more highly."

"A really great service!
So easy to arrange with no hassle and with lots of consultation to ensure Digs would be well looked after by a caring family.
Far less stressfull than using boarding kennels, and with regular updates while you are away you have the peace of mind your pet is being well looked after.

We will definately use Barking Mad again.
Many thanks to Mandy and the team from us and Digs"

"Alfie had a good Xmas holiday

The placement was complicated as we wanted to house our dog upcountry from Cornwall as we made complicated travel plans to travel abroad and then pick up Alfie before going onto Scotland. Being a national franchise this was all arranged seamlessly by our local rep Mandy with the Wiltshire rep Clive. Alfie had a good time with his host. Not sure he actually wanted to come home !"

"Gary arranged care for Josie, our Jack Russell while we were travelling for a month. We had absolute confidence in Gary after meeting him before he collected Josie. He told us about the lady who would be looking after Josie and it sounded like a match made in heaven, which it was. You always want your pets to be kept safe when you are away from them, but to know that they will be loved and probably spoilt too, is wonderful. We will definitely be asking Gary to arrange care for Josie again."
