"Skye, our labradoodle, is just back from her first Barking Mad holiday. She was well cared for by her host family, who from their insights on the 'post card', really got to know her well and her quirks. They obviously gave her a lot of care and spent time with her. We would not hesitate to use the service again. From the initial registration to the collect and drop off, the service was great. It meant we could relax and enjoy our holiday."

"We have used Barking Mad on a number of occasions and have always been very happy with the service and the care that Alfie receives. This time was no different. Alfie clearly had a great holiday and was very well cared for. He even won first prize in a rescue dog competition, returning home with a rosette and a photo of him proudly wearing his prize! Many thanks to Carole and the host family.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this service."

"Thank you so much for these photo's and please send our thanks to Babs and family for looking after Fleur so well. We can see that she had a lovely time -I think she is missing all the attention! It must have been all her doggie dreams come true - having people who appeared to like being sat on!!!!! I am busy planning our various footie weekends now that I feel so comfortable in leaving her and will email you when I have finalised things."

"Once again I was so pleased with the service from Carol & Sharon and went away safe in the knowledge that Oscar was in good hands. He came home quite happy and well and the first thing I did was to book him in again for his next holiday. I wouldnt consider using anyone else."

"Hi I would like to thank Rebecca and Michelle for the smooth and excellent service on Sam's stay with his foster parents. I have been worried about how Sam would react as he is a rescue dog and tends to fret when I am away for a few hours all my worries were put at ease by Rebecca and Michelle. Sam seems to have enjoyed his stay away and I am looking forward to my next holiday knowing Sam will be looked after and in good hands. So once again a big thank you from Dave and Sam.
