Hello, I’m Julie and I have just taken over your local branch of Barking Mad – Dog Home Boarding in South Lakes.


My Background

I have recently moved back to Heysham with my 2 pooches Jessie & Elsie on having spent the last few years back in my hometown of Barrow-in-Furness running the South Lakes Franchise. Previously, I spent 30 years in the Offshore Industry, travelling to various countries around the world, but my love of animals always remained. I spent most of my childhood on the smallholdings behind my parents’ house, riding horses, mucking out, feeding the pigs, cows etc. I returned home when I was either hungry or tired, much to the dismay of my parents.

If you see my distinctive Barking Mad cars out and about chauffeuring doggy holidaymakers, please do give us a wave. It will either be myself or a member of my team working hard to provide 5* rated dog holidays in and around Lancaster.

Please do not hesitate to give me a call on 01539 234044 if you would like to have a chat about your dog’s requirements. Please also call if you would like more information about joining our team of host dog carers. You can email me at

Dog Boarding in South Lakes

Barking Mad offers award-winning home from home dog boarding where your beloved pet is cared for in a loving and attentive host family home.  Our experienced team of hosts are specially chosen by u. I ensure they meet all insurance and license requirements.  Each host is then specifically chosen for their compatibility with your dog’s needs and daily routine offering luxury dog care.

Our hosts have joined Barking Mad for a variety of reasons.  Some may have lost their pet and just feel that they cannot commit to owning another one fulltime.  Many have a dog themselves which thrives on having another four-legged friend for company.  Others are perhaps retired or work at home and love having a dog part-time for companionship, walks and fun.

So, if you’re looking for a superior alternative to kennels, or think you may be interested in becoming a host with a dog home boarding in the South Lakes and surrounding areas. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
