About Us

Hi everyone! We are Amy and Shannon and we are the owner of Barking Mad Dog Boarding in Edinburgh.

Dogs are a big part of any family. So, leaving them when you go on holiday is a concern for every owner. We aim to take away that worry so that you can concentrate on being excited about your time away! Barking Mad offers an alternative to kennels. We provide home-from-home boarding for your dog, who will be carefully matched to one of our dedicated host families.

Dog Home Boarding in Edinburgh

Everyone worries about leaving their dogs when going on holida. So we take that stress, fear and concern away while you are away having fun on your break. Your beloved dog will have a wonderful time on their holiday. Enjoying the time of their lives. We provide the home from home comforts that your dog is used to with no change of routine keeping them happy and content.

Our Background

We met whilst working together in a veterinary practice, and have become very close friends over the years. We have owned and experienced just about every pet (including chickens), but dogs have always been number one. In fact, it was our own dogs that led to us becoming such good friends. We love nothing more than taking our three out for the day. Climbing the Pentland hills, swimming at Cramond beach or lazing around in a dog-friendly pub!

We loved working with pets and their owners, but were on the hunt for something that would allow us to continue to care for animals and also build our own business. When we got the chance to run the Barking Mad Dog Boarding in Edinburgh branch, we jumped at the opportunity!

How it Works

We will come to your home to meet you. To get all the information we need to pair you with a host who can provide the home comforts your dog is used to. With no change to their normal routine.

Our area covers all the EH postcodes in Edinburgh. So we can provide a fantastic friendly, professional and caring service for our customers and dogs in East Lothian, Midlothian and West Lothian. Our dog boarding in Edinburgh service includes home visits to meet every new customer. A personlised chauffeur collection and delivery service to one of our dedicated hosts where they’ll spend their very own special holiday break. If this sounds like a great plan for you and your dog. Then please get in touch and we will be delighted to give you all the information needed to get you organised before your next trip.
