Barking Mad - Dog Home Boarding Service Covering South Northamptonshire


Shirley Rands
Hello, my name is Shirley Rands. I live in Towcester in South Northamptonshire and I run the Barking Mad service covering South Northamptonshire.

As a dog lover and owner myself, Barking Mad can offer the most rewarding holiday for your dog as an alternative to kennels. My Westie, Deefer, was on medication for life and after owning him from a puppy he was very much one of the family. I wanted the best for him and when I went away needed to have someone trustworthy to look after him, give him the personal care that he needed, and his cuddles and walks as he was used to, whilst ensuring he received his medication. Barking Mad arranged for him to be cared for by another dog lover, kept his same routines and we both had a stress free holiday. It was great! Unfortunately I lost Deefer in 2012 at the age of 12, but now own a Black Labrador, Diesel. He has very different needs but still receives the same care, love and attention he craves, whilst maintaining his all-important routines.

My background is in retail Banking and I have worked for 2 of the big banks over a 20 year period, my last 5 years in management. I love meeting people, and have pride and passion in my work. With Barking Mad I can still deliver all of these qualities, whilst offering a great unique service to dog owners for their beloved family member while they are away.

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 CrecheHome StayDog Day Stay

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.
