About Me

Hi, my name is Nicola and I’m very excited to be running your Barking Mad dog sitting service in Derby and the surrounding area.

We provide Derbyshire's best 5* rated dog home boarding service with one to one care.

All dogs in my care enjoy a home from home experience enjoying their same routine with plenty of love and attention – even down to cuddles on the sofa!! 

The joy and pleasure our dogs also give host families is fantastic and seeing dogs returning to their owners from their holiday all happy and tails wagging is extremely rewarding.


I live in Derby with my husband Paul and my teenage daughter, Gabrielle. I have two little dogs – Bentley, who is a Chihuahua / Miniature Dachshund cross and newly arrived puppy called Bear who is a Chihuahua.

I’ve previously worked in the hair and beauty industry, but have always loved and wanted to work with animals. When the Derby branch of Barking Mad became available I absolutely jumped at the opportunity to work in my dream job.

Having been a Barking Mad customer for years, I love and understand the concept of Barking Mad and the peace of mind it gives whilst you are away on holiday. Before using Barking Mad myself I was always anxious when away worrying about how my dog was, but now I go away relaxed and safe in the knowledge Bentley and Bear are away having a fantastic holiday of their own!

If you’d like to become a host for Barking Mad or if you’d like to use the service for your own loveable pooch I would love to hear from you – and remember ‘dogs deserve a holiday too’!

You can call me anytime on 01332 650232 or drop me an email at Nicola.Fairbrass@BarkingMad.uk.com
