“ I would thoroughly recommend Barking Mad to anyone who wants peace of mind whilst they're away. Veronica & Laura offer a thoroughly professional and caring service. They take the time to understand your dog's likes/ dislikes and routine and put thought into which host family would be best. Harvey always greets Veronica/ Laura like an old friend when they come to pick him up and seems very happy & in good health when he comes back. ”

Barking Mad in Derbyshire offer an alternative to kennels and provide your dog with a home-from-home environment.
Barking Mad have over 60 franchises throughout the UK and has been established since 2000. Here in Derby Barking Mad is run by mother and daughter; Veronica and Laura Young.
We operate by selecting a number of host families that are all previous dog owners, who will look after your dog in their own home whilst you are away. All homes are checked for factors such as having a secure garden, being of a suitable size, and previous dog experience is essential. If the host already has a dog or pet we will ensure that it is sociable around other dogs.
There is a matching process to ensure that your dog goes to a suitable host. For example, if you own a particular breed of dog we will aim to find you a host that has previously owned the same breed. Our hosts maintain any routine you may have in terms of walking and feeding, and will also collect and deliver your dog back to you on your return.
Our dog walking service is only included as part of a dog sitting package and unfortunately we are unable to offer this as a separate service.
Barking Mad are always on the lookout for host families, so if you think you would like to be part of the team, please get in touch!

“I would highly recommend Barking Mad to anyone. Veronica and Laura are not only very professional but also so friendly and approachable. They understand all the anxieties you have when being away from your dog and send regular updates to reassure. My dog is very elderly and needs lots of tlc. He is matched with a host who provides plenty of this and always comes home looking great!”Report

“We would highly recommend Barking Mad. From the initial visit to coming home, everything was professional & friendly. Veronica really takes the time to get to know your dog, what he likes/dislikes. It was very reassuring to know he was in a home doing all his usual things & not getting stressed. He even sulked for a couple of days because he missed his host!”Report
