Barking Mad

Established in 2000, as the original alternative to kennels, Barking Mad Dog Care has grown into the UK & Ireland’s most trusted dog sitting service, as independently verified by TrustPilot. The multi award-winning brand attributes its success to first class customer service, systems, support, processes and innovation.

Barking Mad’s large and supportive network of 85+ franchise owners coordinate canine holidays and recruit a community of carefully chosen, dog-loving host families, who care for pets while their owners are away.

Spending every rewarding working day with adorable canines and fellow dog lovers really is a dream come true for franchisees. They reap the benefits of a successful and flexible career, with loyal repeat business in a growth industry, as demonstrated by John and Elaine Warburton’s win in the Lifestyle category of this year’s BFA HSBC Franchisee of the Year Awards.

Barking Mad’s support centre team are specialists in all areas from dog behaviour to accounts and licensing. Franchisees are guided every step of the way and benefit from an industry-unique national call centre, providing a friendly and professional voice to answer calls.

The Barking Mad system is the only dog care franchise to achieve ISO 9001 certification, the world’s most recognised quality management standard, ensuring consistently first-class processes, procedures and compliance with all legislation.

Barking Mad benefits from industry-leading innovation, investment and a wealth of support, expertise and resources, as part of the Franchise Brands plc group, an international multi-franchisor with a combined network of over 450 franchisees in 12 countries.
