"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.

"Just wanted to let you know that we think Barking Mad is such a great way to have peace of mind when it comes to dog care....allowing the owners to slope off and not worry....I had used kennels for many years for Molly and Milly and because they had each other the leaving behind bit was for each other. When Molly died, not so easy and Milly very nervous and I guess not too happy or settled. I used to get Iain to take her but found it too difficult, coward that I am!!

With Barking Mad it is so different. Thankyou for matching up Milly with Dennis. I know they both get pleasure from each others company and that is good for all of us.

If for any reason Dennis couldn't take Milly, I have every confidence in your matching skills.
All hard work for you with not a lot of free time, everyone going on holiday now all year round!!!

Thankyou for such a great service....... Posted by Pam Gotts"

"We love Barking Mad. They give such a caring service it means that we can go on holiday worry free knowing our Lab Alfie is happy and well cared for.

Whenever we go away Alfie gets so excited when Carol (or Tracey before) comes to collect him, he can't wait to go. Unlike the time when we had to use another dog care service and we had to take Alfie to the host family. He cried the whole week because we had to leave him. The beauty of Barking Mad is the pick up and drop off service, Alfie just thinks he is going away and we are at home!

Carol sent us a text to say he had settled in OK and we got a lovely postcard and photo of Alfie with his holiday family.

I cannot recommend Barking Mad enough, thank you Carol."
