Something to bark about

Latest Customer Comments

"I needed to board my timid but huge Golden Retriever. I was very concerned about putting him in kennels for the first time. I wasn't happy with any I found - although caring were not what I needed for Probie. However, I found Barking Mad by accident and haven't looked back since. Probie has been with a couple of hosts and always comes back happy and healthy. I have no worries about letting him go - in fact he jumps straight into the car ready for his 'holiday'. Jennifer and Carolyn have been fantastic. We all worry about our dogs, probably more than we need to, but I worry no more knowing Probie will be very well looked after."

"When Sharon drove off with Jasper our beloved labra-doodle for his holiday with Juliette and Mark we knew he was in safe hands and we had complete peace of mind. We received texts and emails during our 2 week holiday assuring us of Jaspers wellbeing and contentment with his new family.
Thanks to Juliette, Mark and family, Jasper was fit, healthy and happy on his return home, just a little tired from long walks in the woods. We could not fault the 5 star service we got from Sharon and will be booking Jaspers next holiday with Barking Mad very shortly. Posted by Michelle Burdett"

"Thank you Val, to you and your team for the really amazing service you offer at Barking Mad. The time and care you put in to making sure that our lovely Bea goes to the perfectly matched host family each time we leave her in your care. She was such a nervous dog when we first had her and became distressed if anything changed her routine. From her first wonderful stay with Vera and Amber, she came home each time more and more confident. This is all down to you and your caring hosts. You are all very special people and David, Bea and I are so pleased we found you!"
