"Thank you so much to Sue and Stuart, Marni's hosts for the weekend! Marni has obviously had a marvellous time and been given loads of time and attention!
Thanks also to Val and her team here in Reading. They found just the right hosts for Marni and gave a fabulous professional service - I particularly liked the little extra touches eg the texts letting me know how Marni was enjoying herself! Thanks again! Sue"

"I was delighted to discover that Barking Mad was now in Cornwall. I had previously used kennels but as Charlie is a rescue dog, felt that a place similar to home would be kinder to him. I felt reassured from Gary's initial visit and on return from holiday it seems clear that my boy enjoyed himself too and was well cared for.
I would certainly recommend Barking Mad as an alternative to kennels."

"Very grateful for the care and attention Frankie received when we were on our holidays. We've never left her with people other than family and friends so this was a big deal for us but the professionalism and service Shirley provided helped put our minds at rest. Seems like Frankie had a great time and will definitely be using the company again."

"I have used Barking Mad for years and cannot recommend it highly enough. The pickup and drop off service is wonderful, and when Carole turns up at my house, my two dogs are always delighted to see her. I think that speaks for itself."

"We recently left our 2 chocolate labs for 2 weeks to go on holiday. We were a little nervous as we had never left Rosie the 9 month old pup, and Holly had only ever stayed with family before.
We need not have worried, after bring introduced to their hosts for a weekend visit, they both happily went on their way with Nicola without a backward glance!
They returned happy and well looked after and we would certainly use the service again in the future. Thank you. Posted by Lynne Hitchen"
