Leave your dog in safe hands while you travel

Leave your dog in safe hands while you travel

Concern for your dog’s wellbeing when abroad can spoil a relaxing holiday or important business trip, and may prevent you from travelling altogether. So Barking Mad has come up with the answer: ‘Home From Home’ pet care.

Barking Mad understands how important peace of mind is for dog owners when they travel, especially when kennels or house-sitting are not appropriate. That’s why its unique ‘Home From Home’ service was set up 12 years ago.

It has since helped thousands of people to enjoy a happy holiday, safe in the knowledge that their pooches are in the hands of experienced pet professionals back home.

While you are away, your companion will be under the care of a local host family who will ensure that his or her routine is kept as consistent as possible. The network comprises more than 20,000 people and 1,300 trusted host families in the UK.

So you can enjoy guilt-free short- or long-term travel at any time of year. What’s more, you’ll even receive a postcard from your pooch while you’re away to let you know how he or she is getting on!
