About Me

Hi, my name is Caroline and I am the proud owner of Barking Mad Dog Home Boarding in Reading!

Dogs are a big part of the family, so leaving them when you go on holiday is a concern for every owner but with Barking Mad dog boarding in Reading, this need no longer be a concern! My mission is to provide you with a trusted, reliable and stress-free alternative to kennels whilst you are away.

Your dog will be welcomed into the home of one of my experienced, dog-loving host families This ensures your dog is cared for as they would be at home – with undivided attention and plenty of cuddles!

My background

Dog Boarding in Reading Caroline Temple with 2 dogsBefore I found Barking Mad, I was an accountant. Like many other young professionals, my husband and I love animals and grew up with everything from dogs and cats to rabbits and hamsters! We always wanted a dog of our own but for us this was not possible as we worked very long hours. A colleague recommended we host for Barking Mad Reading and since then we’ve hosted a number of different breeds including Cocker Spaniels, Beagles, Labradors, Boxers and Jack Russells and fell in love with every single one of them! In fact, we enjoyed it so much that when the opportunity arose to run the business, we jumped at the chance!

Dog home boarding in Reading

I will come to visit you to find out all about your dog, including details of their eating, sleeping and exercise routines, general likes and dislikes and any medical requirements. This enables me to match your dog to the perfect host family for them. We ensure our loving host family has all of your dog’s details so that they can stick to their routines as much as possible, helping your dog feel comfortable in their new accommodation. We arrange transportation to and from their dog holiday destination and ensure they are happy and settled in with their hosts.

From a host’s perspective, I know that it is not always possible to have a canine companion of your own for many reasons and I’ve found Barking Mad to be an excellent solution to this.

If you would like to find out more about care for your dog, or if you are a dog lover who would like to look after friendly dogs for short stays, do get in touch as I would love to hear from you! You can contact me on 0118 324 6724 or email

I look forward to meeting you soon!
