“Before you get a dog, you can’t quite imagine what living with one might be like; afterward, you can’t imagine living any other way…” 

About Us

Hello from Tony and Anna!

We are delighted to run your local Barking Mad dog home boarding service in Blaby District and surrounding South Leicestershire areas.  We provide dog sitting across the region, from Barwell and Earl Shilton in the west, to Desford and Kirby Muxloe in the north; from Broughton Astley, Cosby and Countesthorpe in the South, to Kibworth and Great Glen in the East.

We live with our current pack of lovely dogs Bobs (Lab/Goldie X) and Isca (Black Lab), and gorgeous (and big and fluffy) Norwegian Forest Cats, Mouse and Murph.  They make a great little team, and all get along famously.   Having had dogs for over 20 years, we completely understand the challenge of finding a trustworthy solution to the “what to do with the dogs whilst we’re away” puzzle.   So, when the opportunity arose to set up the Blaby and South Leicestershire Barking Mad dog care business, we jumped at the opportunity to leave stressful jobs behind and work with dogs.

We provide 5* dog home boarding where your beloved dog is cared for in a loving, attentive host family home.  Our bespoke service means that we carefully choose the right Host for your dog so that their needs are met.  Your dog is in a home-from-home holiday environment having all the walks and cuddles they could wish for, whilst you are away.  We take care of all the organisation, transportation and legal aspects, so that you can have a stress-free holiday, knowing your much-loved dog is in the very best of 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, or maybe they are retired or work from home and love having a dog part time for companionship, walks and fun.

Would you like to join our host community?

As a Barking Mad host, you will offer bespoke one-to-one home boarding holiday care for our dogs for weekends and holidays. If you would like to say hello to a temporary furry guest, enjoying all the well-documented social and health benefits of dog ownership without the financial cost or full-time commitment, then why not become a part of our valued host community?  We provide full support 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week, so you’re never alone – all you have to do is enjoy looking after a lovely pooch!

If you’d like to have a chat about the Barking Mad service in Blaby and South Leicestershire, please don’t hesitate to give us a call on 01163 267271 or email

Looking forward to hearing from you!
