Alison Preece Bakring Mad Gwent April 2019


We provide the very best dog home boarding in Abergavenny, Cwmbran, Pontypool and the surrounding areas. Dogs deserve a holiday too!

“If I had a pound for every time a dog made me smile, I would be a millionaire – this is so true of all dogs”

About Me

Hi my name is Alison and I am excited to be the owner of your local Barking Mad home boarding service in Gwent, including Abergavenny, Abertillery, Blackwood, Brynmawr, Crickhowell, Cwmbran, Ebbw Vale, Pontypool, Risca and the surrounding areas.

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 will be helping me in the business and together we are dedicated to making sure that every dog has the very best one-to-one personalised doggy holiday.

We understand it can be difficult leaving your dog behind when you go away, but Barking Mad dog sitting 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.

You will be able to feel relaxed and confident that your pet is enjoying themselves on their holiday with one of our passionate Barking Mad host families. They will return home relaxed, happy and with their very own holiday post card, telling you what they have been up to.

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.  I went to visit them at Barking Mad HQ and was inspired by their brand story. I knew that starting my own dog sitting business was something I would love to do!

Our host families provide peace of mind to you by looking after your best friend and caring for them as you would. We select each host family carefully and match them with your dog to ensure they receive the same love and care that you provide.  The end result is Happy dog, Happy holiday, Happy you!

Become a Barking Mad host family

If you are passionate about dogs but can’t commit to one of your own why not consider becoming one of our fully supported hosts?  You will become the heart of our business. There is no financial commitment or paperwork for you to complete.  Give us a call – we will be delighted to hear from you.
