Hi, my name is Penelope Davis and I am delighted to run your local Barking Mad Dog Home Boarding Service in Loughborough.


My Background

My life-long love of dogs began when I was told that our family rough collie Sheba never used to leave my pram and guarded me like I was her own. I now own a lovely American rough collie Nova who keeps watch over my own children in our home (whilst also making sure she gets her long nose into everything that’s going on!). She was a ‘lockdown dog’ and truly changed my life as I spent more and more time outside getting to know so many other dogs and their owners and began to see the magic transformation dogs have on our well-being as they not only have so much love to give but also bring your closer to nature and the great outdoors.

After years of working in education, I decided to invest my future in dogs, sharing in the daily joy and love that they bring whilst meeting fellow dog lovers. Matching client’s fur-babies with the perfect Barking Mad Hosts truly is a wonderful way to spend my days!

Initially I started out as a dog boarder and felt truly privileged to care for a wide range of sizes, breeds and personalities. This gave me invaluable experience in understanding that each dog is unique and deserves a tailor made one to one dog boarding experience. This is when I discovered that the Barking Mad model provides an exceptional service to clients as we create the perfect bespoke and stress-free holiday for your dog.

Dog Home Boarding in Loughborough

I truly understand just how important your dog is to you and I am so proud to be able to offer services which ensure they are cared for and walked by people who will look after them like their own. Our hosts volunteer purely for the love of dogs: they adhere to our strict set of guidelines set down by the business and the Local Authority and are fully covered by our insurances and license.

We always trial your dog before their actual holiday for a night or two to establish your dog’s routine and introduce them to their holiday host. This ensures you can go away with complete confidence and peace of mind. Our hosts are often are retired or work from home, have access to safe, dog-friendly local walks, and have secure gardens.

We share photos and videos of our hosts in their homes and they get a full set of instructions of the care they will provide that we design together in our registration meeting. This rigorous process ensures your precious pet will get all the undivided love and attention they deserve without any of the anxieties associated with multi-boarding or kennels. Starting from the moment they are collected from your home to be chauffeured to one of our vetted hosts, every aspect of their care has been carefully thought out and considered so that you can go away on your holiday with the security and knowledge that your dog is in very safe hands.

Pet Sitting in your home

Our experienced hosts can care for your dog and other pets in your own home while you are away. The host and I will come and meet you and your dog before your holiday to establish house rules, maintenance, and pet schedules. We offer an hourly, half day or overnights service tailor made to your pets and holiday needs.

Dog Walking

We also provide a daily dog walking service where your dog will be collected and chauffeured to a rural idyll for an hour long walk in the middle of your working day. Our doggy adventures can be one to one but are always limited to no more than 3 dogs for each walk ensuring your dog has the opportunity to socialise without the risk associated with larger pack walks.

Wedding Package

Designed so your best friend is part of your big day. You can get your perfect pooch pictures without any worry that your nuptials won’t be a dog’s dinner. We believe that dogs are part of the family so it’s only natural that you want to include your dog in your wedding day. We are proud to provide our personalised and flexible furrytail dog wedding chaperone service to take all the hassle and headaches out of having your pooch around on your special day.
