If you love dogs but can't have one full time, why not look after friendly dogs for short stays?  Just say when you're available and what types of dogs you prefer and The Barking Mad team will get in touch when they have one they think you'd like to look after! It really is that simple!

The team will bring each dog to your home and collect them again at the end of their stay.  All of the gorgeous, furry visitors will bring everything they need including food and toys!  'Hosting' works really well if you love dogs but can't commit to owning one full time.  The fantastic host network includes people who work from home, people who are retired and people who travel a lot, ideally with no other pets of their own.   If you live in South Northamptonshire and think this could be a great option for you, please get in touch for a no obligation chat.
