"I have used Barking Mad several times and have had excellent service. Sam has been very happy with his holiday placements."

"Really happy with the service we received from barking mad. Our dog Barney can be a little nervous with new people so the trial period worked perfectly for when we took our 2 week holiday. Without Barking Mad we wouldn't have felt comfortable about leaving Barney and wouldn't have gone on holiday. Would fully recommend the service to anyone and Sharon and the team always keep you informed with updates through the holiday. Posted by Mark Tuttle"

"Millie has never been in kennels after various not-so-nice experiences with our previous dogs. She has only ever been to one of the host families of Barking Mad and we've always been delighted. She's happy and clean when she comes back with no hoarse voice or kennel smell.
We're relaxed about leaving her and she is always happy to see Jakki when she comes to pick Millie up.
Having Millie picked up from home also stops that horrible, guilt-ridden journey to kennels and removes the experience of having to hand a dog over to somewhere where it inevitably is noisy.
It's a great experience over all and we couldn't go back to sending a dog to kennels ever.
Hurrah for Barking Mad!!"

"I can not recommend Barking Mad enough. Totally delighted with the service. Steve is a great chap who went totally out of his way to ensure our mad puppy Willow was put with the most suitable host family. Willow enjoyed her stay to the max, I think she wanted to stay with them!! Us as a family felt relaxed knowing she was in capable hands and I will continue to use Barking Mad, its the best for you pet. THANK YOU!!"

"Thank you for introducing us to the fabulous hosts who looked after Rosie recently. Our 15 year old border terrier takes many medications and my husband and I were a little worried about leaving her but we didn't need to. The hosts looked after all her needs but more than that, they gave lots of love and cuddles. She came home bright and happy and we are so grateful for the care and attention that you and the hosts gave her."
