"Charlie is getting on in years and I was delighted to discover Barking Mad as an alternative to kennels. Jan and Phil have taken a great deal of trouble to match him up with his hosts, so much so that when he came home the last time he tried to turn round and go out with Phil again! It is really good to know that he is so happy and well looked after, it means that I can enjoy my holiday as well. Charlie always comes back fit, stress-free and having probably had more pampering than he gets from me. Thank you to Jan and Phil, Pat and Doreen for taking so much care of him."

"Otto had a 'two centre' holiday in September where he stayed with Barbara for a few days and then Julie and Pete, a couple he knows very well. The care and attention given to Otto by all three people is outstanding and keeps us entirely free of concern when we are away. This is of paramount importance as Otto is an integral part of our lives.

We know that Otto is a very sensitive little dog who requires human company and reassurance and this Barking Mad, via its hosts, has provided in abundance. Many thanks once again for caring for Otto so well and with feeling and kindness."

"We are very lucky to have found a couple who really like our dog Esme (Airedale terrier), and this gives us great peace of mind when we're away. Also Nicola Sheard, our local Barking Mad agent, is always very accommodating with our sometimes 'last minute' bookings."

"We have a lovely 9 year old Cavalier. After moving to Sidmouth Alfie developed Diabetes and now requires two insulin injections a day. We contacted Lucy at 'Barking Mad' and she found us a lovely Nanny who was happy to look after Alfie.
Nanny Nett gave Alfie all the attention he needed and managed his Diabetes with great care. Lucy reassured us that Alfie was in good hands and the communication was excellent.
Alfie returned from his short break in great shape and is looking forward to his next trip to Nanny Nett in a few weeks time. Thank you.
Jacqui and Mike Sutton"
