I’m Amy and I set up Barking Mad about Animals! after university in July 2010. I am based in Tenterden, Kent but do travel to surrounding areas for various jobs. I have always loved and been surrounded by animals and decided I’d like to pursue a career in this area. I have been brought up with dogs and am also very fond of horses and have ridden since I was two.

My job entails dog walking, house/pet sitting, equine care and dog home boarding services. I look after a wide range of animals, no animal too big or too small! More information about these services are available on the website and my Facebook page.

*Fully licensed to board dogs in our home.

*Fully insured with Pet Business Insurers.


The ‘boys’ : Osbourne and Gus 

OsbourneThe most important members of the household are my two dogs. They are very welcoming to the home boarders and thoroughly enjoy meeting new friends! Osbourne is a Jack Russell Cross and a real gentleman. He enjoys the quiet life and relaxing on the sofa with the quieter home boarding guests!

Very sadly, Ozzy had to be put to sleep in January of this year, after a short battle with kidney disease. We couldn’t bear not to have him on the website still, so he remains on here. We miss him terribly, but we know he had such a lovely, spoilt life with us!



GusGus is a West Highland Cross and a very playful boy. He is more than happy to entertain the livelier dogs who come to stay and likes to share his toys with new friends!

Gus sometimes joins me when I walk other dogs local to where I live, it helps with his socialisation and makes the walks more enjoyable for the other dogs too. Gus is fully vaccinated, wormed and de-flead.
