My Background

Growing up in the local area in Berkshire, in a dog-loving family as soon as I left University and had a suitable home, I found Jasper. He was a cross between a miniature Schnauzer and a Bouvier des Flandres. When he passed away I remember feeling so alone. There was no excited dog to greet me at the door with his favourite dog toy. There was no eager face waiting for the end of the banana and I had no reason to go for dog walks.

I can’t imagine life without a dog. Although dogs are a big commitment which is why Barking Mad dog boarding in Basingstoke is the perfect solution. Not only for those looking for professional local dog sitting care but also for people who can no longer have a dog full time but can host in their homes for short periods of time that suit their availability.

I have lived just outside Tadley for the last nine years and in 2015 started sharing my house with Archie a very cheeky Lakeland Terrier who is an expert photo bomber. Together we explore the beautiful countryside around North Hampshire and West Berkshire. Archie loves taste testing my home-baked doggie biscuits.

Dog Home Boarding in Basingstoke

Working in a corporate environment for the last 30 years, I have never been able to participate in ‘Bring Your Dog to Work Day’ but I couldn’t be happier, this now happens every day and I’m looking forward to meeting your dogs too and finding them the perfect host who will love their company, walk and play with them for the duration of their holiday stay.

If you are interested in having more information about home boarding or hosting, please contact me on 01256 830705 or email me
