Barking Mad - Dog Home Boarding in North and South Tyne and Wear
Hi my name is Cath and I’m delighted to offer the very best in dog sitting as your local Barking Mad dog home boarding in Washington, North and South Tyneside.
I have been around animals and owned dogs all my life. I am so lucky to be able to combine my love of dogs and my work. Previous to this role I ran my own dog walking business for four years.
I heard about Barking Mad when I was looking for dog boarding for my own dogs, Flynn my loveable Labrador and Ash, my crackpot cocker spaniel. I was about to cancel my holiday as I struggled to find the right care for my “babies”. I really wanted one to one care and kennels were not an option. Barking Mad provided boarding for my boys in a loving family home which kept them to the same routine they had at home (including the cuddles and lots of love)! Barking Mad were brilliant and so professional and the peace of mind they gave me was priceless. After their initial short stay holiday my dogs would get so excited when the car arrived to collect them. With wagging tails they would jump in the car without a second glance.
Before dog walking I previously worked for the NHS for many years. My experience with people has helped me a great deal with Barking Mad customers, who are understandably very nervous about handing over their precious dog(s) to my care. I provide reassurance and gain their trust to enable them to enjoy their holiday in the sound knowledge that their dog(s) will have a happy holiday as well. After all……dogs deserve a holiday too!!!!

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.
