Dog holiday care in North Glasgow

Give your dog a holiday to write home about.

Going on holiday always presents a dilemma doesn’t it? You can’t wait to go, but you don’t want to leave your dog. What makes it easier is knowing they’ll have as good a time as you will.

Barking Mad provides dog-sitting and holiday care in North Glasgow for owners who want their dog to have the sort of holiday they’d write postcards about (if they could).

They’ll enjoy lots that’s familiar. They’ll spend plenty of time relaxing. They’ll have a bit of adventure. Well, isn’t that what every holiday is about?

Glasgow dog-sitting, tailored for your dog
We want your dog to feel right at home – and for you to feel confident in your choice of care. That’s why every Barking Mad holiday starts the same way. We’ll take time to get to know you and your dog. We’ll talk about favourite treats and toys, medications, diet, sleep – all the things that help us ensure they have their paws comfortably under the table in no time.

We’ll even take them for a trial stay, so they can get used to staying in their home from home.

Across Cumbernauld, Bearsden and Milngavie, that’s what makes Barking Mad dog holidays different. Our wonderful hosts maintain your routines. They provide constant care and attention. They give your dog a holiday so good, dog owners trust us with their dogs again and again.

Who will my dog be staying with?
Our Barking Mad franchisees and hosts are spread right across the UK. In North Glasgow you (and your dog) will receive the warmest of welcomes from Jakki Gunn and Trudi King-Gunn.

Jakki, Trudi and their carefully selected band of brilliant hosts have been caring for Lanarkshire’s dogs for over 8 years, and they’re in no doubt why dog owners choose them again and again: “We make dogs (and their owners) happy. That’s why we’re Scotland’s best alternative to kennels.”

They’re looking forward to meeting you. For dog sitting and dog holiday care in Falkirk, Airdrie and across Lanarkshire please talk to Jakki and Trudi.

Could you be our next dog host?

The perfect dog holiday in Glasgow starts with the perfect dog host. It’s our job to find them.

How do you become a dog host? Well, it goes without saying that you’ll be potty about dogs, but you’ll also have the commitment to give your four-legged guest 24 hour love, care and attention while their owner is away.

You won’t have to worry about paperwork, money or insurances (we’ll do that) but you will be providing a home from home, maintaining routines and generally providing the very best dog holiday any canine could wish for.

The funny thing is, our dog hosts enjoy providing dog holiday care as much as the dogs enjoy receiving it.

"I am always happy to use Barking Mad as I can relax on holiday knowing Hannah our greyhound will be happy with the family she is placed with.

Jakki and the team run a very professional service"

"We have used Barking Mad for a couple of years now and the dogs have made several trips. We wouldn’t be happy if the dogs were in kennels so are delighted with the Barking Mad arrangement. Julie, who collects and returns the dogs, is friendly and efficient. The dogs know her and the routine and she sees them safely to Barbara, their host. The dogs go bounding in to see her. She takes really good care of them and when they return home they are beautifully groomed. Our dogs are happy, so are we."

"Sonny was a relaxed and happy dog when he came home after spending a week with Ross. That is why I know this works. Thanks again."

Dayle Hegarty - 6th Oct, 2015
"I have been using Barking Mad for 7years now. My dogs are very much part of our family, I have never liked leaving them and always had a worry when we went on holiday until I came across Barking Mad. Jakki and Trudi put me at ease when I met them, their obvious love for dogs means you know that they look after your dogs as much as you would yourself. They make sure the dogs are homed with someone who is matched to your dogs characteristics, keeping them in their same routines. When they come home they have a postcard and photos of their holiday. It is clear when you read it that the host loves what they do and also that they know your dogs quirks, whether it be for swimming in the water or need for lots of cuddles. They also try as much as possible to home your dogs with the same host each time which I love as you know that the dogs feel more at home with each stay. I know when my dogs go on holiday with barking mad they are very much looked after in a warm home environment. I cant recommend them enough they offer a great service, they are dog lovers and do all they possibly can to make sure that my dogs are not only looked after but happy and content. Pepppa and Cookie love their holidays with Barking Mad which helps me enjoy mine even more!"
