Latest Customer Comments

"Both Pepper and I are delighted with the service we received. In Pepper’s case, the trial sleepovers were invaluable.

Janet’s comments on my beloved Puppy really pleased me and I am happy that Pepper behaved for Janet. She would certainly have had a lot of attention from Pepper. My dog loves both people and other dogs.

If and when I do go away again, I really hope Janet is available and that Pepper can stay with her again.Pepper was in fabulous condition and happy when she came home. She was exited but then settled back into her routine. I'm indebted to Janet. Her card was very informative and positive. No surprise that she loves Pepper-so do I.! I worried about her when i was away but I didn't need to. Janet and Pepper hit it off perfectly. Pepper is very loving, very friendly and a perfect companion. Janet recognised all that.

Thank you so very, very much. Posted by Jeannette Prescott"

"My dog is very clingy and loves her home comforts. There was no way I could consider leaving her in a boarding kennels where she would be shut up all day with very little human contact, she would pine and become very stressed.

Kathryn and Barking Mad found Sky a host that suited her, and I think she was spoiled rotten. She has come back very happy and is not stressed at all.

I was glad that there was the pick up service as I would have struggled to leave her, but she went quite happily in the car for her holiday.

I would strongly recommend the service and will definitely use them again."

"When Harley came home we could tell he had been well looked after, his eyes were bright and he was a happy Harley. Will use Barking mad again with no worries."

"Thank you so much to Steve and Tina for ensuring that Rafferty was taken care of whilst we were on holiday. As this was the first time he had been left with anyone other that the family for any length of time we were a little anxious but appreciated our "pup-dates" whilst we were away. A huge thank you to Lyn for her patience and understanding, especially the first two days when Rafferty was settling in. He apologies profusely for pooing in your bedroom - he has NEVER done that before! All was well in the end however and he came back having had a lovely time with lots of attention. Thank you all again, and we will definitely use you again to look after our grumpy little chap (definitely Lyn!!)and would not hesitate to recommend your services to other dog owners."
