“I love my Barking Mad job, providing the best 1:1 dog home boarding in the Lake District!”

About Me

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

My Background

I have recently moved back to my hometown of Barrow-in-Furness with my rescue pooch Muffin to fulfil my dream of working with dogs.

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.

A few years ago, I knew I’d had enough of traveling and being away from home. So I decided to follow my heart and have a complete career change.  That’s when I came across Barking Mad.  I loved the idea that it was on a 1:1 basis. If I ever needed a holiday stay for Muffin my 12-year-old Yorkie, I immediately knew it would be ideal.

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. Muffin and I would love to hear from you.
