"Another 5 star stay"

"I love Barking Mad and everything it stands for. Our pooch loves it too. Alfie has a lovely time whilst we are on holidays and we feel content in knowing he is safe, he has his home comforts, he is looked after to a high standard and we love the fact contact is maintained and we get updates plus photos. Tina is so supportive as are all the hosts. We really can't thank you enough."

"Sam & Jess had another relaxing holiday"

"Sam & Jess have had another relaxing holiday with Barking Mad. They came home happy and contented, this was especially reassuring as one of my dogs had not been too well before their holiday and I was reluctant to leave them. Thanks to the care and cuddles from Marilyn and Mick, all was well!"

Lesley Walker on 8 January 2018

"5 star stay"

"Always a 5 star stay with Barking Mad. Nothing ever too much trouble and always lovely hosts that look after our 2 Jack Russell's, Molly and Mitzi. You'd be barking mad not to use this service"

Gillian Fletcher on 3 January 2018

"Harvey had another lovely weekend"

"Harvey had another lovely weekend staying with some of his long time favourite hosts, Sue and Paul. He has a strict diet which must be followed and a problem with his ears and yet again all his needs were so very well cared for. From his report and the photos, it looks like he had a lovely time and enjoyed his walks and seeing his old friends. Thank you all!"

"Fantastic Dog Care"

"Thanks for organising another brilliant holiday for our boys. They had a wonderful holiday with Geoff and Ann and came home very, very tired! We loved the photos of them having such a fab time on the beach. It's such a relief to know that our dogs are well cared for and having a great time while we are away. Really appreciate the postcard too and hearing what they've been up to!!"

Mr & Mrs Beaumont on 18 December 2017

"Excellent Service"

"Tina and her team gave us a fantastic service and were very supportive. We were using their services for the first time and were a little apprehensive. The hosts were chosen with care and the text and email updates allowed us to enjoy our holiday knowing our little lad was well looked after. He returned to us fit and well. We would have no hesitation in recommending Tina and her team to anyone who is looking for a little help with dog care."

Graham Dodds on 18 December 2017

"We love Barking Mad"

"We love Barking Mad! Best choice for our Max when we go on holiday! He loves company and we can go away knowing how well he is looked after (and spoiled) by his Barking Mad host!"

Elizabeth Hilton on 12 December 2017

"Dog Holidays"

"Very professionally run business with lovely staff.
We love the photos and updates we receive on our dog Riley but especially the postcards, which are written with much humour.
When Riley comes home after a stay, although he's so happy to be home, I can tell he's had a really great time and has been very well cared for.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Barking Mad to anyone."

Gillian Scott on 27 November 2017

"As always, a brilliant service"

"As always a brilliant service! We have used Barking Mad for a number of years and can go away safe in the knowledge that our dogs are well looked after, giving us total peace of mind. We highly recommend Barking Mad"

Christine Ferguson on 20 November 2017

"Barking Mad is an excellent service"

"Barking mad is an excellent service. Your dog is in a home from home environment with people capable of looking after them. The process of your dog leaving home and coming back is very straight forward and the staff are amazingly helpful and reassuring. Our dog has been on his 10th holiday with barking mad. We wouldn't send him anywhere else. Top class service."

Susan and Malcolm Brown on 1 November 2017
