Dog holiday boarding services in Cobham, Surrey

Off on holiday? Give your dog some vacation time too.

There’s always lots to arrange before you head off on holiday. And for most of our customers, the thing that used to cause more worry than anything else was where to put their dog while they were away.

But they don’t worry about such things anymore – because they’ve discovered Barking Mad’s dog holiday care services in Cobham, Esher, Epsom and Weybridge.

Personalised dog boarding in Cobham, Esher, Epsom and Weybridge
There’s no great secret to giving your dog a better dog holiday. It’s all down to our wonderful hosts. We take time to match your dog with its ideal host, so whether your dog loves bounding down the beach or an amble round the garden we’ll find a host who feels much the same way.

They’ll maintain all your routines – food, sleep, exercise, medication – so there are no bad habits to break when you return. And we’ll make sure there’s always lots that’s familiar close by, like toys, bed and blankets, so your dog stays reassured and happy.

Ever thought about dog hosting?

When Luis and Karen Saraiva’s dog died in 2012, they decided that, before making another full-time commitment, they’d investigate dog hosting first.

One thing led to another and now Luis and Karen run their own Barking Mad branch, but the success of what they (and we) do still rests on the wonderful dog hosts who care for your dog while you’re away.

Why not become one of them? We’ll handle all the paperwork; you focus on making your four legged guests blissfully happy.

"... 'As always, thank you so much for all of your help. It's been a great comfort to us during our three years here in Engand knowing that every time we've travelled somewhere Pearl has been happy and active.'"

"Dear Luis
I am now home from my travels and catching up with emails.
Thanks so much for the wonderful photograph of Charlie and Bertie with their “host mum”. :-)
We are delighted with the Barking Mad service and will certainly be in touch again when we next need to be away.
Thanks again for everything and have an enjoyable Easter weekend.

Best wishes,

"Hi Luis
I just wanted to say a big Thank You for looking after Badger during his ‘convalescence’ - I felt very confident leaving him with you even though it was the first time. You were able to assure me that giving medication etc. would be no problem which was a great relief.
He returned home in the peak of health and when he saw you again (always a good sign) was delighted to be off on his ‘holidays’ again.
I shall definitely use you again and recommend you to all who ask.
Kind regards. Judith"

"Dear Luis.
Thank you for arranging for Yaro to be looked after so well. He has returned in much better condition than any of our other dogs ever have from kennels so that is a big plus for us. I do hope that he was not too much trouble for the hosts and that they might be prepared to have him back in the future!

"We have been using Luis and Barking Mad for several years for our two border terriers and cannot express enough how highly we rate the service. Excellent customer service and communication initially in person and then either by phone or email means we have always had peace of mind when we have put the dogs into the hands of the carers. The transport service to take the dogs from home to their carers takes all the hassle out of moving them at a time when we are usually busy trying to organise ourselves to go away. Barking Mad have always been able to find someone to accommodate our dogs, most of the time with the same carers the dogs have stayed with before. Though their administration vigorously ensures that all the practical elements of a stay is taken care of, Barking Mad work hard to ensure that both us and our dogs are happy during any times apart."
