Barking Mad - Dog Home Boarding in Essex

Hi, my name is Emma and I am delighted to be your Barking Mad representative for Chelmsford and the surrounding areas.

I live with Bracken, a lively Jack Russell/Springer spaniel cross who is 10 years old but thinks he is still a puppy and enjoys long walks in the country, as well as 2 cats - Moggs & Jack, both rescued from my nursing days. 
Oh, nearly forgot and my husband Paul!

Before joining Barking Mad I was a Veterinary Nurse for 16 years working mostly in small animal practices. I have experience in working with dogs of all ages, shapes and sizes. I decided that it was time for a new challenge. I wanted to be able to run my own business and still work with animals. When I heard of Barking Mad I thought it was such a fantastic service and one that I would really enjoy being part of.

Dog Creche

I understand and appreciate the difficulty that owners go through when leaving their beloved dogs behind! I will make it my mission to provide the best holidays for your pets and great peace of mind for you whilst you are on holiday.

Our host families are what make us such a great alternative to kennels. Each host is carefully selected to meet your dog's requirements while on holiday and they all have one thing in common, they love dogs and will ensure that your pooch has a memorable holiday with all of the home comforts they are used to.

Dog Home Stay in EssexDog Home Stay in Chelmsford

Our Service
Who’s who - It’s really important to get to know you and your dog, especially in the beginning. We’ll come to you and over a cup of tea you can tell us all about your day-to-day routines for feeding and exercising so we can replicate this for your dog. We’ll chat about likes (usually a lot), dislikes (usually the postman) and any healthcare requirements. By the second chocolate digestive we’ve started to understand your dogs’ individual needs and lifestyle. By the end of our meeting, which usually takes around an hour, we’ll all be getting along famously.

Oh and don’t worry, we love dogs of all shapes and sizes, pedigree, Heinz 57 or rescue. They can sleep in the bedroom, pull on the lead, or even hide your favourite socks. As long as they are friendly we’ll get along just fine.

Holiday home - Selecting the right host family is very important and your input into this process is invaluable. You will want to know where your dog is going, so during our time together you are going to see all of our dog-loving families. They are just like you and me, and guaranteed to meet our extremely high pet sitting standards. Together we’ll make the right choice, and you can decide whether your best friend stays in a home with or without a resident dog, depending on his needs.

Dog Home BoardingHome StayPet Home Care

5 Star - Our service includes door-to-door, chauffeur driven transport for your dog. Being collected from home is far less stressful, and completely overcomes the anxiety caused to dogs when left behind by their owners. Our experience has shown visiting dogs settle more quickly with their home comforts around them including bed, food, toys and treats, arranged as they would be at home. In no time at all, they’ve become part of the family, with their paws placed firmly under the table.

Our hosts are at home during the day to ensure round the clock care is always provided, especially where puppies, dogs on regular medication and senior citizens are concerned. We’re in touch with our hosts regularly, so we will keep you posted during your time away about anything you need to know.

The best bit for us is seeing dogs happily settled-in and comfortable with their host. We will, wherever possible, be sure to use the same family each time you book a holiday. There are no minimum or maximum time limits, we’re here whenever you need us.

Trial Stay - We’ll arrange a short stay in advance of your main booking so that when you’re away you can relax knowing your dog is having as good a time as you are!

Leave it to the experts - There’s no point having a dog and barking yourself, we do all the hard work so you don’t have to. No tedious form filling, laborious visits back and forth to meet various people; a simple phone call is all that is required.
