We provide the very best dog home boarding near you in Bath, Trowbridge, Frome, Glastonbury, Yeovil, Warminster and South Somerset. Dogs deserve a holiday too!
My name is Nicole and I’m your Barking Mad dog care representative in Bath, Trowbridge, Frome, Glastonbury, Yeovil, Warminster and South Somerset.
We work with you to provide quality dog home boarding. Your dogs will enjoy an excellent, worry free dog sitting holiday experience. Your dog will stay with a loving host family in their home.
We appreciate that going away, whether it is a family holiday or a business trip and entrusting your dog to someone else can be a difficult decision. However, having arranged lots of successful doggy holidays we know you will find the Barking Mad experience to be a very positive one.
Your dog will be lovingly cared for by one of our carefully selected host families who will maintain your loved ones routines giving them a real home from home holiday themselves.
I live in Somerset where I have lived all my life and I love it. I am a mother of two beautiful grown up daughters and a step-mummy to a very handsome ten-year old boy. I am also of course, a proud dog owner.
I have always loved dogs since I was a little girl and remember trying extremely hard, begging my parents to have my own dog. However, only when I was an adult earning my own wages and living on my own did I go out and find my first dog ‘Macintosh’. He was a delightful Springer Spaniel. I now have two dogs, one working Cocker Spaniel and a German Shepherd. I love them both dearly no matter what.
My dream has always been to work with animals however as a busy mum I worked in a school to be able to bring up my two daughters and be there for them as much as possible. Now they are older I have much more time and flexibility to follow my dreams.
I started working for Barking Mad as an employee in 2016 and enjoyed it so much that I decided to buy and run the Bath and South Somerset areas myself. I love the concept and like many dog owners I was always too worried to leave my dogs to go on holiday. I was always lucky enough to have my father and my daughters to look after them.
At Barking Mad, we are extremely careful in the selection of our hosts and host families. Our dog loving hosts have safe and secure environments for your special doggies to be looked after. With our support our hosts provide the very best dog care so your special furry friend always has a one to one holiday to be remembered.
While you are away we will keep you updated on how your canine best friend is getting along with our host family, by text or email that we hope will help you relax and enjoy your break. We find that it’s often the simple things showing we care that make the biggest difference to our customers.
Our dog sitting service cover areas including Frome, Warminster and Trowbridge. (A full list of towns can be found below).
Your loved ones are then returned with a happy, waggy tail and a postcard telling the story of their holiday, and even a photograph too!
I truly believe Barking Mad is the best local alternative to kennels with lots of repeat bookings and recommendations from lots of very satisfied customers. But don’t just take my word for it, take a look at what some of my customers have been saying on the customer comments page.
I look forward to meeting you and your best friend!
