Dog sitting services in Gatwick

This year, make arranging your holiday easier.

Sorting the passports, transfers, packing and kids is quite enough of a task without worrying about your dog. Yet we meet lots of people who spend their entire holiday worrying whether their dog’s happy back at home. For some, it’s enough to stop them holidaying abroad for good.

We know that feeling. We wanted an alternative to kennels too. That’s why Barking Mad exists, to provide loving, 1-2-1 dog minding and dog sitting services in Crawley, Reigate and East Grinstead while you’re away.

Personalised dog sitting services in Gatwick
We know your dog has to feel right at home if you’re to enjoy a worry-free holiday. That’s why we take time to make the perfect match between dog and host.

We’ll talk to you about your dog’s favourite treats and squeezy toy. We’ll talk about food, medication and exercise. We’ll find out what they love, what they hate, and what sends them into a bit of state. We’ll even take them for a trial stay, so they can get used to staying in their home from home.

Barking Mad’s dog minding services in Crawley, Reigate, East Grinstead and across West Sussex ensure that your dog can always enjoy a wonderful home from home alternative to kennels while you’re away. When you return, you’ll find your dog just as happy and content as when you left.

Who will my dog be staying with?
You’ll find Barking Mad branches across the UK. For dog sitting services in Gatwick, Crawley and Reigate you (and your dog) will receive the warmest of welcomes from Emily Timms.

Emily lives in Edenbridge with her six year old cheeky Cocker Spaniel, Charlie. She’s a passionate animal lover – in fact, when Emily was looking for a change of career she considered opening a pet shop, but then discovered Barking Mad. We’re glad she did.

It will be Emily matching the perfect host to your dog, so you can enjoy a getaway free from worry. For dog sitting and dog home boarding services in Gatwick, Crawley and West Sussex talk to Emily.

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

Become a dog host

Dog hosting is like being a part-time dog owner. You choose when to bring a dog into your life. When it’s with you, you give it all the love and attention you can. And when it’s not, you don’t have any of the commitments – or bills.

And the beauty of Barking Mad is that once you’re bitten by the dog hosting bug, there’s always another dog in need of a loving home from home.

“I wish I’d done this years ago…”

That’s something we hear rather a lot from our Barking Mad dog sitting franchisees.

Other things they have in common include a love of dogs (of course), a passion for what they do, and a drive to build their business.

If that sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. You can find more about running your own dog sitting business here.

"Ruby came back happy and tired showing she enjoyed her stay and lovely long walks."

Claire Minter - 6th Jan, 2017
"Pip loved staying with the other family - well we think so anyway because he returned home un-phased and like he had not been away. That is the sign to us of a happy dog.
I would recommend Barking Mad for someone to look after their 'furry babies'.

Mel and Jenny - 10th Oct, 2016
"Fozzie has stayed on several occasions with families from Barking Mad and has been well looked after and come back very happy. When he knows he is going on another of his holidays he is very happy and excited."

Lynne, Dorking - 7th Oct, 2016
"Another happy stay for my dog with a lovely family. Emily (and Charlie)even helped me out with some last minute logistic problems, so thank you!"

Rob and Jane - 20th Sep, 2016
"Our Scottie, Fergus, happily gets into Emily's car and doesn't look back! He comes home equally happy and we love that we get photos and postcards from his holiday. A great service, especially for sensitive dogs ( and owners!)."
