Dog Sitting | Looking after dogs in Paisley & Inverclyde

Because your holiday is better when you know your dog’s having a great time too.

Today, your dog explored a wood; chased a ball, a stick and a Frisbee; ate his favourite dinner and then flopped into his familiar bed and snored loudly. Tomorrow he’s thinking of doing something similar.

Barking Mad gives gorgeous dogs great holidays. We do it to provide an alternative to kennel care. And we do it because, when you know your dog’s having a fabulous holiday, it makes it easier for you to enjoy your holiday too.

Paisley & Inverclyde dog-sitting, tailored for your dog
We know how important it is for 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 find out their favourite treat and squeezy toy. We’ll make a note of what drives them mad (usually the postman). We’ll even take them for a trial stay, so they can get used to staying in their home from home.

Across Paisley, Inverclyde and North Ayrshire, Barking Mad is giving dogs the loving, caring home from home they need while you’re away. Our wonderful hosts maintain your routines. They make your dog the centre of attention. They give your dog a holiday so good that 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 Ayrshire you (and your dog) will receive the warmest of welcomes from Faye Carruthers.

Faye’s background is in nursing, but after many years caring for humans she switched her attention to dogs. She knows the difference Barking Mad can make – to dogs and their owners. “It’s a win-win situation for all involved. It makes a holiday much more enjoyable when you know your dogs are happy too.”

Put your dog in capable hands. For dog sitting and dog holiday care in Paisley, Inverclyde and North Ayrshire please call Faye here.

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

I wish I’d done this years ago…

There’s no such thing as a typical Barking Mad dog care franchisee. But every one of them feels the same way. Their wish they’d found us sooner.

If you love dogs – and you love the prospect of running your own business – then a dog care franchise with Barking Mad could change your life.

"Another wonderful service provided for Casper by Faye, very relaxing for both of us knowing his needs are tailored for himself as he's an old boy now, thankyou

"Rory has just spent 3 weeks with Eileen and as usual was well cared for. We went on holiday feeling confident that Rory would enjoy his time with her. I would certainly recommend Barking Mad to other dog owners. Thanks again for looking after him."

"Excellent service provided by Faye and her team with hosts carefully selected to gel with the animals.
I would have no hesitation in awarding this company 5 stars for their experience and service."

"We are always delighted to place our two girls (Ellie & Poppy) with host Liz via Faye. They come back probably even more spoiled than when they went (if that's possible!) and are always happy to see the Barking Mad car pull up !!! Only minor criticism would be it'd be nice to get a couple more pics during their break but the host postcard is always a delight to receive. We'd recommend Barking Mad but more especially Faye and her staff to any dog owner looking for a caring happy home from home for their furry kids !!!. Posted by Richard and Iris

"Our wee Pug Pippin has returned from his third holiday with Faye and Barking Mad. Wonderful service as always and Pippin loved staying with Carole and her two dogs. A huge success and he came back full of beans and slept for hours! He obviously had a wonderful time. We hope he is not bored being back with us and no other doggy company.Great photos and postcard - his writing is really improving!
Barking Mad allows you complete peace of mind when away and we would recommend Faye and her team without hesitation."
