About Me

Hi, my name is Claire Dutton and I’m your Barking Mad dog home boarding representative for Grimsby and the surrounding areas.

I am dedicated to ensuring your dog has a wonderful dog holiday and in turn giving you peace of mind to enjoy your time away.

Our dog sitting host families are very special people who have lots of experience and love to give your dog.


I have a very high level of repeat business and excellent referrals from my dog care customers and hosts.

Since school I have always wanted to work with animals and did my work experience at a local vet practice. However, upon watching my first operation and subsequently being picked up off the floor; I decided that maybe this would not be the best career option for me!

I have spent most of my life in New Waltham where I currently live with my husband, Ady and my lab, Isabelle.
I have been part of Barking Mad since 2007. I came across this wonderful service when I was going on holiday and needed someone to look after my beloved lab, Paddy. Kennels were just not an option. He had such a wonderful time and was so well cared for that upon my return, I bought the franchise. I unfortunately lost him in 2016, just shy of his 15th birthday.

If you would like your dog to have a staycation whilst you have a vacation please get in touch. Or If you would like to enjoy all the benefits of dog ownership without the financial or full-time commitment and with 24/7 support, then why not become a Barking Mad host?
