“We’ve hosted for Tina for probably eight years now and we’ve had every sort of dog from a Bernese mountain dog down to the tinest Yorkies. They are all lovely in their own ways and our favourite are still the Labradors because they are very easy going and good fun on a walk. At the moment we have a lovely golden cocker spaniel.
It has really helped us as we’ve come into a new neighbourhood and we now talk to lots of different people with dogs and we’ve now been able to integrate into the estate which is lovely.
What we do like is the fact that Tina gives us the dog’s profile sheet which has all the information about the dog. It details the walks, when the walks are and how the dog likes to be on the lead. We always know if we have to give pills and what food the dogs have and literally every piece of information is in there. We had a dog that happened to have an ear infection when he was with us and Tina organised the vet and medication. We didn’t have to worry about that as it was completely down to the Barking Mad team.
I think the advantegs of this are that it gets you out walking and you thoroughly enjoy having the dog there and he’s just good fun. I don’t think we’ve ever had one that we’ve disliked (how can you dislike a dog, really?!).
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and so I would say to anyone who’s looking at it to give it a try. See how you feel because I think you’ll enjoy it!”
