Barking Mad UK

Established in 2000 as the original alternative to kennels, Barking Mad Dog Care has grown into the UK and Ireland’s most trusted dog home boarding 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 franchise owners coordinate canine holidays and recruit a community of carefully selected dog-loving host families. These are the men and women who care for the dogs while their owners are away. Spending every rewarding working day with adorable canines, and fellow dog lovers, is a dream come true for franchisees. They reap the rewards of a successful and flexible career, with loyal, repeat business in a growth industry. This was demonstrated by John and Elaine Warburton’s success in the ‘Lifestyle’ category of the HSBC-sponsored bfa Franchisee of the Year awards. 

Barking Mad’s support team are specialists in all areas, from dog behaviour, to accounts and licensing, guiding franchisees along every step of their business journey.

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 625 franchisees in 10 countries.
