Barking Mad - Dog Home Boarding Service in Huddersfield, Yorkshire
My name is Mark and I am delighted to be launching Barking Mad in Huddersfield and Halifax. I am 55 years old and have lived in Yorkshire with my family for the last 27 years, so am now beginning to feel like a proper Yorkshireman!
Having worked in IT and Sales for most of my working life, I was looking for a new direction, where I could ensure the quality of the services I delivered on a consistent basis, so when my wife and I discovered Barking Mad, we were really intrigued by the idea of their pet care services.
We already have four mad, but very happy Yorkshire Terriers from various backgrounds (Bertie, Basil , Ollie and Daisy May) and we enjoy spending time with them and taking them for walks, so the idea of building a business out of our love for dogs seemed a great idea.
We visited Barking Mad HQ in the Lake District and were immediately impressed with the quality and depth of the organisation and the belief and confidence of both the owners and the staff at Barking Mad.
The businesses ethos and commitment to making their customers dogs the centre of everything they do and the total commitment to the quality of the customer and their dogs experience won us over completely.
I am greatly looking forward to delivering this great service to customers in our area and meeting so many different dog breeds and personalities!
If you are interested in becoming a host, or using this service to book your dogs a doggy holiday simply call or email me and I look forward to hearing from 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.
