"Very happy with the service. This booking was rather last minute but sorted by Sharon very quickly. My girls did in fact revisit the first sitters who had looked after them 3 years ago and it was lovely to get the feed back from them of what they thought of the girls and the things they had done together when they stayed.
Pick up was smooth and return was the same. We could see the girls were happy to be home but had enjoyed their time with the sitters.
I have recommended the service to a friend of mine as they were looking for an alternative to kennels"

"Thanks Jane and Ruth for giving Jake a wonderful holiday. He has come back very chilled and has obviously been cherished while he was away!

"When we got our miniature schnauzer "Finlay" we said we wouldn't leave him or put him in kennels so when a family wedding came up that meant a full weekend away what to do!!! Then we were told about Barking Mad by neighbours who use them for their dog.So then we met Steve and it was all ok, Finlay took to him right away, he picked him up and took him to stay with his hosts MARK and LISA, WE RECEIVED A TEXT TO TELL US THAT fINLAY had settled and was happy with them, we enjoyed our wedding and felt relaxed that Fin was happy and settled.On Monday Steve brought Fin back with a picture of him with Mark and a postcard. Thanks Steve and Barking Mad. Sue,Dave,and Andrew Hill. Chk4z3"

"I needed to board my timid but huge Golden Retriever. I was very concerned about putting him in kennels for the first time. I wasn't happy with any I found - although caring were not what I needed for Probie. However, I found Barking Mad by accident and haven't looked back since. Probie has been with a couple of hosts and always comes back happy and healthy. I have no worries about letting him go - in fact he jumps straight into the car ready for his 'holiday'. Jennifer and Carolyn have been fantastic. We all worry about our dogs, probably more than we need to, but I worry no more knowing Probie will be very well looked after."

"When Sharon drove off with Jasper our beloved labra-doodle for his holiday with Juliette and Mark we knew he was in safe hands and we had complete peace of mind. We received texts and emails during our 2 week holiday assuring us of Jaspers wellbeing and contentment with his new family.
Thanks to Juliette, Mark and family, Jasper was fit, healthy and happy on his return home, just a little tired from long walks in the woods. We could not fault the 5 star service we got from Sharon and will be booking Jaspers next holiday with Barking Mad very shortly. Posted by Michelle Burdett"
