Barking Mad: Where dog holiday care gets personal...

“I think it’s the one-to-one care - that’s what really makes the difference,” says Frankie Doig, Barking Mad’s branch owner in Sale, Salford & Urmston.

“When you go on holiday, you have a variety of care choices for your dog. But for many people - and many dogs – kennels aren’t one of them. Dogs that need a more personal and attentive approach love Barking Mad. And for owners who know they won’t be able to enjoy themselves properly if they’re worried about what’s happening back home, our particular brand of Manchester dog holiday care is exactly what they need.”

Manchester dog sitting with Barking Mad
Every dog holiday we arrange begins the same way. In Sale, Salford and Urmston, Frankie will visit you and meet you and your dog.

You’ll talk about the things your dog loves and hates. You’ll discuss routines, diets, medication and exercise. And Frankie will match your dog with one of our wonderful dog hosts.

A dog host is chosen because we think they’ll be the perfect match. So if your dog loves fresh air and exercise, your dog host will too. And if your dog is more suited to a gentle amble and pottering in the garden, well, we’ve other hosts who feel exactly the same way.

They’ll ensure your routines are maintained. They’ll keep familiar toys, food and bed close at hand so your dog always feel content. They’ll even send you the odd photo while you’re away, to show you that your dog is enjoying as good a holiday as you are.

Donna Bell - 15th Nov, 2016
"Fantastic service and real peace of mind when you use Barking Mad. I left my Jesse for the first time for three weeks. I was very concerned as she was to split her time over two different families. All went really well; Jesse got great feedback and acted like she had just been out for a walk! Didn't miss me one bit!
I can wholeheartedly recommend this service. Will definitely be using again and again."

"Definitely recommended - let me check up on my little donut and know she was doing well. As a nervous nelly it helped me be able to worry less and actually enjoy my holiday, knowing Dinky was enjoying hers."

"Great service from Frankie, very thorough questionnaire to cover all aspects. My dog was treated as a special person by Frankie and the family and this gave me confidence that my precious family member is well looked after when I am away."

"When we are away we always send Pasha to Frankie. It's peace of mind for us and fun fun fun for Pasha. She always comes home exhausted and we get regular updates about her holiday too. Thanks again Frankie and see you in 2016!"
