"We were really happy with the friendly efficient service. Charlie returned home a very happy dog with a lovely postcard telling us all his news! Have been singing your praises - huge thanks to you and Kathy."

"To say we were anxious about leaving our spoilt boy Oscar for 3 weeks at the age of 9 months would be an understatement.
We really had no need to worry, Oscar has come back this morning from his holiday with his host family thoroughly chilled out!
It was really lovely to hear how he was getting on whilst we were away & the photo's & postcard confirmed that Oscars had lots of fun with his host family.
Thank you for such a professional & caring service, we will certainly be looking to book for next year."

"My wee friend Harvey has just come back from yet another holiday with Barking Mad. I know he had a super time (as usual) as I got the cold shoulder for the rest of the day. It's not that I sent him away - it's the fact he was brought back!!!! We're now pals again though. He is always well looked after and I have the utmost confidence in Barking Mad. Many thanks to the hosts, Trudie & Steve and their two Westies, Molly & Layla, and, of course, Lin and Val at Barking Mad."

"Our initial meeting with Jan and Phil was very professional and very reassuring. Our request for holiday care was rather last minute after recommendation from a friend in another area and also rather complicated but Jan and Phil found the perfect solution for Coko who seems to have had all the love and exercise she needs with Kevin, Annette and the lovely Harvey. The regular postcards were much appreciated by all the family. So much better than kennels for a dog who thrives on human or canine company - we hope that Coke will not be too disappointed to be returning home after a memorable holiday!"

"Thank you to Kerry for finding such a wonderful family for Saffie for our recent extended holiday. It was important that she had the human contact she needed while we were away and Chris and Keith were everything that we and Saffie could wish for. Saffie loved her 'holiday' home and arrived back with us a very happy dog.

This was our first time using Kerry and the Barking Mad service, we knew that kennels was not for us or Saffie. For anyone like us who is nervous about leaving their pet behind I can tell you not to be, Kerry provides a friendly professional service and quickly puts you at ease with her passion to match your needs to her hosts and I would have no hesitation in recommending her and Barking Mad to anyone!"
