About Me

Are you looking for dog sitting in the Durham area? Well you’ve come to the right place!

My name is Joanne Hewitt I’m delighted and proud to be the face of Barking Mad dog home boarding Durham.

I will be delighted to come and meet you and your dog and gather as much information about personality, routine, diet and those little quirks that only you know. We will then be able to provide a match to a suitable dog loving host.

Our dog sitting hosts have all the attributes to look after your beloved pet whilst you are on holiday giving you peace of mind that your dog is safe and happy.

I live near Bishop Auckland with my husband Neil and our young adults Isabelle and Adam which makes me ideally placed to provide this wonderful first class service to County Durham.

I grew up with two King Charles Cavaliers Tansi and Tamer and two Afghan Hounds Ziggi and Chi (at the same time). I have many memories of endless grooming, long walks and the fun of seeing all the breeds at dog shows. Last year sadly our own beautiful boys Bailey and Jasper (Golden Retrievers) passed away at a ripe old age. We all miss them so much and the warmth and fun they brought to our home.

I discovered Barking Mad when I saw a Facebook post about hosting, I thought this was a great way to satisfy my needs for lovely dogs as unfortunately we were not able to commit to owning another dog. My husband, children and I were busy working or studying. It was then I also noticed the franchise opportunity and on enquiry to K9HQ felt it was ‘meant to be’ as the franchise in Durham was available, so I jumped in with both feet and left a 28 career in nursing.

I’d love to hear from you to discuss what I can offer your dog – please call me on 0191 5805111 or email – If you are interested in becoming a host please also do get in touch.
