About Me

Hi, I am Amelia and I am so excited to bring you the very best dog boarding service from Barking Mad St. Albans and Harpenden.

I am a passionate dog enthusiast and I know that leaving your four-legged furry friend whilst you go on holiday can be extremely difficult, but let me make it easier for you with our wonderful home-from-home boarding service.

I understand that all of us want the best for our canine companions. To put your mind at rest, I will get to know you and your pet so that our host can be matched perfectly with your dog’s personality, behaviour and needs. They will be the centre of attention during their time away from you but of course being cared for with the same routine you use at home. My duty is to ensure your peace of mind so that, whilst you are away, you can sit back and enjoy your holiday, knowing your dog is getting truly spoilt. I will ensure you are kept updated with photos and post cards so you will not have to worry about a thing.

A little about me: I have lived in St Albans all my life and have had rescue dogs throughout – all sorts of different breeds, from mongrels to spaniels – you name it we have had it or looked after it! Our most recent pet was a mongrel called Rusty. When I first saw Rusty at the rescue centre, I completely fell in love with him and persuaded my family to adopt him. Rusty had had a troubled past and needed a lot of love and affection as he had been mistreated. Between myself and my family, we managed to turn him from a scared, anxious dog into a loving, happy one.

Unfortunately, about a year ago Rusty passed away very suddenly. This left a huge void in our lives. When I first heard about becoming a Barking Mad dog holiday coordinator, I knew it was the perfect job for me as I could get back to being with dogs every day. From the age of 16, I worked in retail, most recently as a store manager. Although I enjoyed this, I knew it wasn’t my passion in life and I always felt like something was missing – dogs! As a Barking Mad business owner, I am looking forward to allowing you and your pet to have an enjoyable, stress-free holiday. If you have put off booking because you’re worried about your furry friend, worry no further – Barking Mad is perfect for you. I look forward to meeting you and your dog.
