My name is Alison Quigley, I run Barking Mad South Lakes. We offer a local, quality service providing loving home from home holiday care for your dog/s.

Dog owners come to Barking Mad as an alternative to kennels, friends or family. We rely on local referral and fantastic Trust pilot reviews. We are not an online agency and offer 1:1 care for your dog/s 24/7.

Barking Mad is locally owned and has over 70 branches across the UK, we are experts at making dogs feel at home whilst their owners are away. We initially meet new doggies and their owners and get to know them in their home setting. we organise a short stay in advance of a main booking so that customers can relax when away knowing that their dog is safe and happy; from the food they eat, the exercise they need, to any healthcare requirements needed and cuddles are optional!

Barking Mad offer a collection and return service for dog/s; a dog being collected from home is far less stressful and completely overcomes any anxiety caused when dogs are left behind by their owners. Dogs travel in their preferred position safely in a car (not van) similar to their own experience – a real home from home!

Here in the South Lakes, we are always seeking hosts to occasionally care for dogs. Hosting provides all the benefits of dog ownership but without the full time emotional and financial commitments attached to owning a dog. I personally select, vet, insure and license our host families to look after dog/s on holiday. Our fantastic host families are the heart of the business and are offered training and events – a real local community of dog lovers!

I look forward to networking with you through LBN or meeting your pooch – puppy or pensioner!

Best wishes and wags!
