What our customers say...

Barking Mad regulars Jenny Baxter with Angela Rogers and their dogs Sandy Bobby and Harvey 2 1

Last year everyone on the October break re-booked for next year which must speak volumes!!!

Jenny Baxter and Angela Rogers and their dogs Sandy, Bobby and Harvey. 
Jenny Baxter and Angela Rogers have been attending since the holidays started. Angela said: “
My dog, Harvey, and I have been going on Barking Mad Breaks every year since 2008. In fact since 2010 we have been on every single Barking Mad Break that has taken place. (This is usually two or three a year). We never want to miss one and consequently I arrange my other holidays after I know the dates of the Barking Mad Breaks.
The holidays are such fun for the dogs and the owners and you get to spend quality time with your dog whilst taking part in various activities. These include agility, flyball, rally obedience, massage for dogs, train trip to Ludlow, dog games and walks. You do not have to have any previous experience of these and, if you don’t want to take part in a particular activity you don’t have to. The whole holiday is very relaxed. Your dog sleeps in your room and does not have to be in a crate. The meals are also delicious and it is always better if someone else has done the cooking! You meet so many friendly and dog loving people and, of course, you all have something in common. Some evenings there are talks or quizzes on dog related matters
I highly recommend these holidays as the whole break is most enjoyable and there is a relaxed atmosphere and I certainly do not intend to miss any future breaks."

have been on three Barking Mad Breaks, she said: “The whole weekend was fantastic. It was really good to have such a mix of people (age ranges); and actually lovely to have such a large group (of people and dogs).

To be honest, I’m not sure what you could improve. It is a fantastic idea, and we loved it.”

said: “We keep coming back because it is so good to spend time in lovely surroundings with like minded people.” Pippa loves coming.



Marla and I had a FANTASTIC time and can't wait for October to arrive. In fact, I've just marked it on my kitchen calendar and counted up the weeks!
Alison Bradshaw said:
I just wanted to say a huge Thank you from myself and Indi for a lovely weekend.
Like everyone, I had a few reservations about what to expect but they disappeared rapidly as we were made to feel so welcome. Indi and I had a super time and it was lovely to actually just spend some quality time with her without all the usual day to day hassles and worries.
Please say a very big thank you to Leigh for all the lovely food. I think we all felt thoroughly spoilt and it far exceeded my expectations. Such a treat to have someone else do all the cooking ! And the lovely cakes ! A real treat from start to finish.
I will definitely book another holiday with you
