Alternative to Kennels in Ireland Seeks Dog Lovers

New alternative to kennels in Ireland offers solution to loneliness


Barking Mad dog sitting hosting is the perfect alternative to dog ownership

Caring for dogs who are on holiday is the perfect alternative to full time pet ownership


Our new alternative to kennels in Ireland has launched this week, offering volunteer dog cuddling as an antidote to the problem of loneliness in modern society. Lifelong dog lover, Jennifer Curtin, is proudly introducing our bespoke dog holiday service to the Limerick and Galway areas. She explains,  

“Our community of Barking Mad host families mainly consists of active retired people and those who either work from home. It is also ideal for those who have extended periods away from work, such as teachers. We offer the opportunity to care for dogs in your own home, while their owners are away on holiday.  

Hosts experience all the benefits of dog companionship without any of the emotional or financial responsibilities of full-time pet ownership. We take care of everything, including chauffeuring your doggy guest to your home with all their essentials. We also provide 24/7 support and insurance.  

Caring for a friendly dog on a temporary basis and meeting other like minded dog lovers can really help overcome feelings of isolation. Canine cuddles prove really beneficial to emotional well being. The motivation to go and take a walk is also great for your physical health and well being.”  

Would your dog like to stay with our home from home service?
