About Me

Hello, my name is Richard. I am the proud owner of Barking Mad Dog Boarding in Ashford. Serving Folkestone, Ashford, Tenterden and the surrounding villages. 

Pet Taxi Service

Barking Mad have been organising bespoke holiday dog care for 20 years. We would now like to tell you about our Pet Taxi service. All pets are transported in fully insured vehicles.  I and many of my colleagues in other areas would like to offer a pet taxi service to those who are self-isolating or prefer not to go out during this time of risk. So, we can transport any household pet in one of our vehicles. Contact me on 01303 812902 or mobile 07815 762554

I spent over 30 years selling scientific equipment and wanted a job that I could fit to my needs and desires.  Working with dogs made great sense as we had lost our greyhound Suki a few years previously.  Working is now so much more fun, lots of nice dogs and great hosts and customers. Also, with my wife retired and my mother ailing I am looking to step away from running the business and to sell on to a new enthusiast.  If they are interested I hope to keep in touch by providing holiday support and doing some collection and deliveries.  Any replacement has to be a special person as our dogs, hosts and customers are our priority. Therefore I won’t be leaving unless I am certain that the new owner will continue to uphold the high standards we work to.

Dog Home Boarding in Ashford

Richard Wall Barking Mad Dog Sitting Home Boarding AshfordBarking Mad offers an award-winning home from home dog boarding service where your beloved dog is cared for in a loving, attentive host family home. Which means, our experienced hosts are specially chosen by myself. I cover them with insurance, support and license them. Also, I match their abilities and experience to suit your dog’s daily needs, offering luxury dog care. Our hosts have joined Barking Mad for a variety of reasons. Some may have lost a dog at some time and just feel that they cannot commit fully to owning a dog of their own. Many have a dog themselves who thrives on the company of other dogs. Alternatively, they are retired or work at home and love having a dog part-time for companionship, walks and fun.

so, call me today and I’ll happily come over to meet you. We can discuss the best possible way to care for your dog when you go away.
