How Does Barking Mad Day Care Work?

After an initial ‘getting to know you’ registration meeting, your dog will be perfectly matched with a host carer. They will spend their day in a family home, following their own routine and enjoying companionship from an experienced dog lover. We understand how important it is for your pet to receive the time and attention they deserve.

As an alternative, we can provide home visits. If you need someone to pop-in on your puppy or gently exercise your elderly dog, our bespoke services can be tailored to provide the ideal solution. The right doggy day care can really make a difference to your pet’s life.

How is Barking Mad doggy daycare different to other providers?

We empathise with the emotional dilemma of choosing a suitable, professional dog carer. It can be time consuming and seem overwhelming to find someone who you can trust as an ideal pet partner for the day. Getting it right is essential for your peace of mind though.

Our doggy days out are pooch–perfect for your best friend. Barking Mad differs from many other doggy day care providers, as care is provided in family homes rather than in a commercial setting. Your dog will receive loving care and attention individually or with a playmate, rather than as one of a large number of animals at a doggy day care centre or kennels.

Will my dog have indoor and outdoor access?

We understand how important it is that your dog’s routine continues as normal. We will follow your instructions and stick to their usual schedule for walking, playtime and relaxation. Dogs can experience lovely walks and make use of enclosed, secure outside space as well as being able to make the most of home comforts.

What is the minimum age for puppy daycare?

There is no minimum age for puppy day care but your pup will need all their usual vaccinations before we can care for them. Puppy care is also dependent on host availability so if you are considering a new addition, please contact us in advance to find out more.

Can you provide references or reviews?

Barking Mad has over 20 years of multi award-winning experience of caring for precious pets. Our customers have provided thousands of independently verified, personal reviews via Trustpilot. We would also advise asking other local pet owners for their first-hand experiences of doggie day care. At Barking Mad, we are proud to be a business that has grown by referral and which continues to do so.

Do you have insurance for doggie day care?

It is vital that you check that your doggy day care provider has the right policies, procedures and insurance in place to cover all eventualities. Barking Mad dog care professionals all provide insurance and fully comply with official guidelines where necessary.

We have robust processes and procedures in place and are ISO 9001 (UKAS) accredited. This award demonstrates the effectiveness of our quality management system. It is also testament to our capability of satisfying the rigors of an external, independent audit.
