Hello and welcome to Barking Mad Dog Home Boarding in Chelmsford.

After 40 years of commuting, Steve decided to start a new adventure with something close to his heart. We had two lovely chocolate labradors, Oscar and Scooby many years ago, but we didn’t like the idea of kennels so we wish we had found Barking Mad sooner.

We are committed to providing the best possible care for your precious dogs. We will work hard to provide you and your dogs with an excellent, worry-free dog home boarding experience. We fully understand how important it is to have complete peace of mind when you go away.

With a Barking Mad Chelmsford doggy holiday, everything is expertly taken care of, giving you the right personalised, one-to-one care for your dog every time.

Dog Boarding FAQs

Do I get to meet the holiday host?

Barking Mad Chelmsford is a fully licensed dog boarding service. Every dog sitting host goes through a rigorous vetting process that we undertake when inducting hosts into the Barking Mad community. At Barking Mad Chelmsford, we have a relationship with you, your dog, and your dog’s host. Many of our hosts have been part of our host community for many years, and they pride themselves in helping us to deliver fantastic doggy holidays.

How does the dog boarding service ensure our dog is settled and happy? 

At Barking Mad Chelmsford we understand that dogs are family. So we find out everything that there is to know about your dog before we match them with a suitable holiday host. We will create a document called a pet schedule, which forms the blueprint of your dog. Then we share the pet schedule with you, so you can double-check the details. We recommend a short stay where your dog will stay for two nights with their holiday hosts so that they are familiar with their holiday home and ensure they will be comfortable when they return for their holiday. We will keep you informed during your dog’s stay, so you can relax knowing that your dog is enjoying a fantastic home-from-home holiday.
