Latest Customer Comments

"This was the first time we had used Barking Mad and were a bit apprehensive as a couple of dog boarding experiences elsewhere had left Cassie anxious and withdrawn.
Trisha came to visit us a while before our planned break to explain how the service worked, and spent time taking notes of Cassie's likes and dislikes and generally getting to know her. Cassie also has a skin condition that requires periods of medication, Trisha reassured us that this would not be a problem to host families.

Cassie was chauffeured by Trisha to stay with Val & Colin. On her return although pleased to be home, we could tell by her body language that she had had a great time away and had been well cared for. Its such great peace of mind that we can go away and know that Cassie is happy on her holiday too!"

"I LOVE Barking Mad! We have used it on several occasions with our two dogs and without exception, they are so excited to leave as they know they are off for some fun. They usually stay with the same family and always come back very happy and well cared for (this last time with a pile of Christmas presents!!!) I don't worry about them one second while I'm away."

"Sonny had a great time on his first barking mad holiday. He settled well and the hosts liked him. He was quiet when he first got back home but soon got back to his normal loud rowdy self. We will definitely use Barking Mad again.
