About Me

Hello, my name is Frankie Doig and I am so excited to be Barking Mad all around Manchester!

If the thought of leaving your dog in kennels is terrifying, then Barking Mad is definitely for you.

Our lovely host families are true dog lovers and will supply all the home comforts that will individually suit your dog’s personality and needs whilst also providing a fun holiday.

We believe that it is the small personal touches that mean so much to our customers and make the Barking Mad service so special.

I can’t wait to meet you and your best friend and look forward to giving them a first-class holiday with Barking Mad.


From being very young I remember driving my father mad asking for my own dog, I wore his resolve down and became the proud owner of a very hairy Heinz 57 called Tango. Since then I have had many dogs, the most recent member of our family is a very cheeky, loveable Cockapoo called Rolo.

I first came across Barking Mad after I sadly lost my German Shepherd, Angel in July 2014. I was unsure if I was ready to welcome another dog into our lives, I came across Barking Mad and thought it was a great idea. I could host friendly dogs whilst the owners were away on holiday and give their cherished dog a home from home holiday experience of their own. I was so impressed by the concept of this bespoke alternative to kennels that I immediately enquired about becoming a franchisee, gave up my career and the rest as they say is history.

I look forward to meeting you soon!
