About Me

Hi there! Are you looking for a Dog Sitter in Pontypool? My name is Alison and I am excited to be the owner of your local Barking Mad home boarding service in Gwent.  We offer dog sitting in Gwent, Pontypool and the surrounding areas, including: Abergavenny, Abertillery, Blackwood, Brynmawr, Crickhowell, Cwmbran, Ebbw Vale, Risca and more. 

My Background

Me And Sweep

My first photo shoot with Sweep

I live in Abertillery with my son Danny and have 2 Labradors called Poppet and Sweep. They both have boundless amounts of energy and are lovely dogs with very different personalities. Danny helps me in the business and together we dedicate ourselves to ensuring that every dog has the very best one-to-one personalised doggy holiday.

I worked in the NHS for 15 years but after losing my husband felt I needed a career and lifestyle change. It was whilst researching places for my 2 dogs to stay that I came across Barking Mad.  After visiting them at Barking Mad HQ, I was inspired by their brand story. I knew that starting my own dog sitting business was something I would love to do!

Our Services

We understand it can be difficult leaving your dog behind when you go away, but Barking Mad dog boarding in Pontypool gives your dog a loving home environment, which follows their normal routine.  Every dog is different, and we find out your dog’s likes and dislikes, whether they are Labradors, pugs, spaniels, collies, poodles, Jack Russells, West Highland terriers, schnauzers, whippets, pointers, greyhounds, dobermans or any other breeds.  We can’t wait to meet lots of lovely dogs and learn all about them.

Get peace of mind while you’re away with one of our passionate host families at Barking Mad Dog Boarding in Pontypool. With our dog sitting service, you can feel relaxed and confident knowing that your pet is enjoying themselves. We even send their very own holiday post card, telling you what they have been up to!

Our host families provide peace of mind to you by caring for your best friend as you would. Each host family is carefully selected, and matched with their perfect dog. This ensures that your dog receives the same love and care that you provide them.  The end result is Happy dog, Happy holiday, Happy you!
