Hi! I’m Carrie and I’m delighted to run your local Barking Mad dog home boarding service in the Newcastle & Tyne Valley area.

Our dog boarding in the Newcastle and Tyne Valley team includes my husband, Ian, and in the busy months we have help from our driving and admin staff, too. Our wonderful host families are also here to make sure that your dog is not simply just accommodated but has a lovely holiday in a local home-from-home environment while you’re away.

Dog Home Boarding in Tyne Valley

As former Barking Mad Newcastle and Tyne Valley customers Ian and I know how important it is that the care your dog receives is tailored to their needs and that they are looked after by genuine dog lovers. At our first meeting in your home, I will ask all about those little things that are unique to your dog. Because we understand that every dog is an individual and they are a very important part of your family. I then use this information to match them up to a compatible host family. We usually have several matches for each dog which ensures a high level of availability. I am licensed with the relevant authorities.

Barking Mad Dog Sitting Home Baording Carrie And Her Staff Newcastle Tyne Valley

Your local team (L-R): Ian (owner/doggie chauffeur), Helen (admin assistant), Ethel (doggie chauffeur) and Carrie (owner/operator)

How It Works

Ian or another team member will chauffeur-drive your pooch with all their personal bits and bobs (unlimited baggage allowance!) to their holiday home and stay with them until they are settled. Our hand-picked and experienced dog care hosts will then provide all the love and attention you would want for them. Most hosts are located right on the edge of Newcastle-Gateshead or in rural locations within Tynedale, so your dog will be exercised in lovely green spaces too.

Our hosts look after your dog and we look after our hosts which ensures real home-from-home care, provided in the context of a professional, 5 star rated service. Our care is always, of course, provided on a one-to-one basis (or to a family pair). We never mix dogs from different families other than providing the option for your dog to have a resident playmate, if you wish. We stay in touch with messages and photos and we’ll return your waggy-tailed pooch to you complete with his or her holiday postcard!

I’d love to hear from you to discuss what we can offer your dog. Or, if you are interested in hosting in the Newcastle, West Gateshead and Tyne Valley area, to tell you more about the rewards of looking after our friendly guest dogs. Call us on: 0191 4147264  or email:
