Barking Mad - Dog Home Boarding in Northampton, Northamptonshire
Hello, my name is Hayley and I have the privilege of providing your local Barking Mad branch of North Northampton. We are delighted to provide you with the very best professional dog sitting home boarding service in the Northampton area.
I am a lifelong dog lover and owner. My daughter and I currently have a seven year old Golden Retriever called Lucy. Lucy has a skin condition (bless her) which requires periodic creams and using Barking Mad as a customer has meant we are safe in the knowledge she is monitored and checked daily with one to one care.
Barking Mad provides a tailored home from home dog boarding service where your beloved dog is cared for with a loving, attentive host family home. Our host families are specially matched, insured and chosen to suit your dog’s daily needs.
The care we provide gives you complete peace of mind in that your dog keeps its daily routine, sleeps in a cosy home, plays, walks, and is given care, affection, tummy tickles and even medication if required.
Our team here are experienced dog lovers and receive comprehensive training and support from the nationally recognised Barking Mad brand.
If you would like to send your dog on a lovely holiday, or if you would like to become one of our wonderful hosts, please get in touch and we would be delighted to speak with you.

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.
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.
