About Jacqui & Bella

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We want to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season......we are thankful for everyone who came back this year to share their pups love with us. We look forward to a new year and lots of love from all the pups.

We are The Kimberlin family and we are located in Irving, close to the DFW Airport and 20 minutes away from Dallas Love Field. This location works really well for are frequent flyers who travel a lot for work.

That being said, we have a lot of frequent flyers now so that means we have a lot of regulars so to make sure that all dogs are a good fit into are pack we ask you to please fill in all the relevant requested information before sending in a request for a Meet & Greet or general inquiry so as to better assist you in a timely manner.

We are a family of pet lovers, and have been for too many years to mention. My sister Helen was part of the DogVacay family in New York. We have two rescue dogs, Ms Maggie & Lilli Wonderful - who we never did find 'forever homes' for, due to falling in love with! Plus we have Mr Cat, and a very well behaved 2-legged daughter, Bella.

We are surrounded by lots of dog-fun places, such as parks, dog parks, and trails. We also have a 6ft fenced in back garden that no one is getting out of. Because we do have a grassy back garden and maybe multiple dogs at one time we would appreciate that all visiting dogs have monthly Flea & Tic Meds (this is Texas so you always have to treat your dogs).

Bella and I have regularly volunteer for local rescue groups where we have gained a wealth of knowledge with special needs, abandoned and abused dogs. Knowing what we know, we decided that it would be best not to take unaltered dogs into the Pack (but there is always exceptions to every rule - so please ask us about our rules)

The only problem with volunteering is we just end up falling in love with them and want to adopt them all! So sometimes if there are not to many dogs we may have a foster dog in our home. If you have some concerns about our foster dogs being in the home with yours please feel free to voice your concerns.

I don't think I can remember ever being without dogs and cats. They are a very important part of our lives and we love them dearly. Hence, we just want you to know that whenever your pets come to stay with us, they will become part of our family - receiving as many kisses, cuddles and treats (my own organic handmade treats, at that!), which we give to our own pets, and they love them. They don't know I sometimes put Kale in them;-). And if they don't know how to 'sit' on command for a treat, by the time Bella has finished with them, they will and they will join the rest of the pack waiting for their next treat. She is extremely patient and good at teaching young and old dogs new tricks.

Do your pets suffer from anxiety and/or being left alone issues? Not a problem. There is always someone for them to play with, sleep with, watch TV with them. and generally hang out with them. But if your pet just wants their own space, there is a place just for them in our home. They can even have their own TV if they want! We also have various size crates if that's what your pets feel safer in, other wise they hang out and sleep like part of the family in a cage free home.

We will update you as many times as you like - with photo's, we can send via text messaging, email, and we can even get them on Skype or Facetime for you if you are having withdrawal symptoms!

We always want to do a Meet & Greet with you and your pets in advance of any bookings so that we can all see how we get on, and you can feel safe in the knowledge that your pet will get the best care and attention - whether they come for a few days or longer. If you would like to do a trial run for a few hours before you leave your pup, that would work to. I can guarantee that they will fall in love with Bella, they all do! So when you return you will see just how comfortable they have become in our dog friendly home.

We know many of you that have small dogs will have fears about the big dogs around the house. We have a separate area for the small ones if this will make you feel more comfortable for your little pup. But after doing this for this long we find that most of the little dogs will end up running with the big dogs. But if not then they have the Bella area that they know is safe from the big dogs. If you have anymore questions about this please feel free to ask any questions before asking for a Meet & Greet.

Please note that if our calendar is marked as one spot left or fully booked, please send us a message asking if we can fit you in. We already know who fits in with the pack so there will always be exceptions to the rules to try and accommodate your pup.

Please ask us ahead of time about how we like to do our Meet & Greets. But also you can read all our reviews, they can not be bought...they are just very happy people.

We are flexible with are hours of business to accommodate your flight schedule, but there will be a surcharge for extreme times over what would be classed as normal 24 hour day. Please don't hesitate to ask about this charge.

Also with DogVacay we are covered by their Premium Insurance and 24hrs hotline, so you can rest assure that your dogs are in good hands at all time.

To all our regulars, there has been a change at the Kimberlin household, so please if you have any questions in regard to your pups care, please call us.

Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We look forward to sharing our family with yours.

Thank you.

Jacqui & Isabella.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Jacqui and Bella! I have never been away from my pup before, so I really wanted to make sure I found someone I could trust and use again in the future. I hit the jackpot! Jacqui stayed in frequent contact with me and sent me so many pictures and updates on Breck. I could tell he was completely at ease when I picked him up. He has found a couple new playmates, and I found Jacqui and Bella. Win win for both Breck and I!

You will never find anyone as loving and caring for your precious pet as Jacqui and Bella. Our sweet Watson has been loved by them twice now and will be spending his Christmas vacation with them. I feel so comfortable when he is there. I have no worries at all because I know he is being loved and spoiled just as if he were home. They treat him as their own and love him as much as we do. They send regular photo updates and texts to let us know how he is getting on. They are conscientious and want him to feel safe. Watson is never nervous or clingy when he gets home, so I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is happy there. We are so fortunate to have Jacqui and Bella to turn to when we need to leave Watson overnight or for an extended vacation. I highly recommend them!

My baby's stay with Jacqui and Bella was absolutely amazing. This is our first time leaving our baby for four days, but those four days felt short when I received constant updates from Jacqui! I had picture messages and videos of our little one playing with his other buddies. It was the most precious thing to watch him interact with other doggies! I have another trip coming up, and I know my next stay will definitely be with Jacqui and Bella! Thank you for welcoming us to the fam ❤️

Jacqui and Bella were absolutely amazing with our Rottie, Monko. I was leaning towards a traditional dog boarding place but came across DogVacay, and Jacqui and Bella's page. I am so happy with the end result. Leaving our baby for the first time to go out of town was completely unnerving, but Jacqui made me feel so comfortable. I received constant updates and pictures of how our teddy bear was doing while we were away. We will definitely be returning to Jaqui and Bella's in the future. We cannot see ourselves leaving our boy anywhere else. Thank you Jacqui and Bella for taking care of our boy and loving him so much!

Jacqui is very loving with pets! She calmed our small poodle through a weekend of storms. A lovely host for your dog...
Charlie loved it..:)
Jacqui and Bella were great! Jacqui sent pictures of my dog every day and kept me updated. My dog had a great time. Jacqui was flexible when I got home a little later than expected. Would def go back - Steve F
Jacqui went above and beyond...yet again! Constant photo/video updates and so much love for the dogs!! We felt totally at ease leaving our dogs for a looong trip because we knew they would truly be having a dog vacay with Jacqui.
Awesome as always!
I could not be more pleased with our choice of using the Kimberlins to watch our sweet pup while we were away on vacation! We met Jacqui a few weeks before to allow Piper to get to know Jacqui and sniff around the house/yard so she would be comfortable there. Jacqui was so warm and welcoming and truly cared about Piper's well being. When we dropped Piper off before our vacation, we knew she would be just fine! SHE was getting a vacation, too! Jacqui, Stanley and Bella took very good care of her, sent us pictures every day, and even sent her home with a new toy!! The location of their house was perfect for us since we were flying out of DFW. We will definitely be using them in the future!!!

Max couldn't wait to spend the weekend with Jacqui and Stanley! And as usual he came back happy and tired! We always have a wonderful experience and have peace of mind leaving him in great hands!
Jacqui and Stanely were amazing! This was our first time being away from our pup, Jake, for more than a few days, but we knew we had nothing to worry about. We received pictures and videos daily so we knew Jake was having a blast. We think he probably had more fun on his "dog-vacay" than we had on ours. We most certainly will be using Jacqui and Stanely again when we need somewhere safe and loving for Jake to stay. :)

Another great vacay for Peyton!! The Kimberlins take such care of my sweet old lady! And she loves all the friends she meets. So happy I found them!!!
Jacqui and Stanley are awesome and always take great care of our two dogs! I can't imagine anyone taking better care of them! They also love their daughter Bella. One of them has special needs and they do a great job giving her medicine. We won't use anyone else! Thank you Jacqui, Stanley, and Bella.

Once again, Peyton had a blast with the Kimberlins and all her new friends. Loved getting all the fun pics of the doggie parties. You can tell how much all are loved and taken care of!! Peyton can't wait for her next visit!
The Kimberlin's were absolutely wonderful hosts to my dog Rex. I was nervous, being that it was the first time I was away from him, but they made me feel completely at ease. Jacqui updated me with photos and videos of him several times a day. In all of the photos, Rex was having fun and enjoying their beautiful back yard. He will definitely be back to visit!

My Dina loves to stay with Jacqui and Stanley. I know that she is loved and well taken care of. I bring her there sometimes so she can spend time with them and the other dogs. She is well socialized and comes back home calm and obedient. The Kimberlins are a wonderful family that is truly committed to making all their four paws guests and their parents feel special. I will be bringing Dina back.

Peyton had so much fun with the Kimberlins! I received many pics and video updates showing her with all her new 4-legged and 2-legged friends. This was the first time I have felt comfortable leaving Peyton with anyone outside of my family. Am so happy I have found the Kimberlin family!

As usual they took great care of our babes and we always receive numerous pictures of them having fun or begging for food. I never worry when I leave them with Jacqui and Stanley; my babes are in good hands. Michele
Jacqui and family were amazing! They worked with us and our newly adopted dog so that we could enjoy our weekend knowing that Biscuit was having a great time and was being well cared for. I was pleased with the updates that were provided as this was the first time that Biscuit was interacting with a large group of dogs and they introduced him in a way that was calming and not overwhelming. Biscuit will definitely stay with the Kimberlin's on our next vacation. He had so much fun this trip that he was completely pooped the rest of the night after we picked him up.

Jacqui and Stanley are the absolute best! I was super worried about finding a great dog sitter for Louie, as I travel a lot for work and like to find someone that will treat him like he's family. :) Jacqui, Stanley, and Bella were a total blessing! My first trip I got updates with pictures of Louie having a blast each day. I never once worried while I was away and felt totally at ease with Louie being cared for. Jacqui is one of those people that is just full of love, especially for your fur baby! I would drive 200 miles to have Jacqui care for Louie; she's that amazing. I am thankful for dogvacay so that I got the opportunity to find Jacqui. Super amazing family and the best dog care. BTW, Louie did not want to leave when I picked him up! That's when you know you found the right person! :)
Glad I found someone to care for Louie that has the heart of gold. :)

I wish I could give 100 Stars!! Mia and Crosby had the BEST time with Jacqui, Stanley and Bella who took such amazing care of our furbabies. We were gone for over a week and I was stressed about finding someone to watch the pups until we found their profile and then knew right away during our meet and greet that our pups would be happiest with the Kimberlins. We got tons of daily pictures and videos while we were away and we could tell that Mia and Crosby were having an amazing time being loved on and making new friends. We wouldn't trust anyone else to watch our babies, the 30 minute drive was more than worth it knowing that they were given the best love and care. I don't think Mia and Crosby were ready to come home when we picked them up, they had THAT much fun! So look no further if you are wanting a wonderful, caring and fantastic family to watch your dogs. (and they get HOMEMADE treats!) They gave us a stress-free vacation and the puppies an amazing vacay of their own!

We had THE BEST experience with the Kimberlin's! This was our pups first time to sleep away from home, and she enjoyed every second of it! We dropped Marge off and before we got to the airport, we already had pictures and updates of how she was doing. For the next few days we received dozens of pictures of the happiest dog we had ever seen. She was loved, safe and happy...what more could we ask for? I can't say enough about what amazing hosts the Kimberlin's are. You can tell they love the animals. As an overprotective pup-mom, they put my mind at ease. When we went to pick Marge up, she didn't want to leave!! I can't say enough about our experience. It was wonderful! I'd go on vacation just so the Kimberlin's could watch Marge! :)

As usual, Jacqui and Stanley (and Bella) took great care of my dogs! They love them like family while they are with them, and send them back to me happy and healthy. We no longer live in Irving, but still drive 30 minutes over to bring our pups because they take such good care of them.
Read More...
The Kimberlins are truly animal lovers. My 3 year old Boxer felt at home instantly. Jacqui sent me pictures throughout the stay to keep me updated. I was so happy to have found such wonderful accommodations for my Dina. I was able to concentrate on my business trip knowing that my dog was in such loving arms. I can see the difference being with the Kimberlins has made. She was able to socialize and play with other dogs in a safe environment, and now its much calmer. Well, as calm as a Boxer can be :-). I will be a repeat client and would highly recommend this animal loving home to everyone.

Jacqui and her family were fantastic! They took such good care of our pup Max - treating him just like he was their own. I received regular communication including pictures and videos over the course of Max's stay. It was such a relief to know he was in good hands. They also were flexible with our travel dates as our plans were derailed multiple times due to weather. We will absolutely be sending Max back to Jacqui and Stanley during our next trip!

Jacqui, Stanley, and Bella were fantastic! We're always apprehensive about leaving our 5 month old puppy, but Jacqui put us at ease during the meet and greet. She took great care of Beans and even washed his towel when he had an accident in the crate. He came back happy, clean, and most importantly tired! We're so glad we found the Kimberlins; anytime we need someone to watch Beans, we'll be sure to return.

We were new the the Dallas/Irving area and a co-worker suggested using DogVacay. After looking at several profiles we selected Jacqui & Stanley (and their daughter). We couldn't have made a better choice. They treat our Boxer like one of their own and they are great about sending pictures and updates while she is in their care. It is with confidence that we highly recommend this special family - you won't be disappointed.

Stanley kept our Leo for a short time (daycare 10am - 3pm) and everything was fine. We were hoping to find a good solution for Leo for a future trip. But our plans changed. And we moved from Irving, so we haven't had a chance to really leave Leo with Jacqui & Stanley overnight.

Jacqui and Family are amazing! They have a perfect home for the dogs and take great care of them. I absolutely love getting the photo updates from them through out my dogs' stay because I can tell they're being loved like one of their own. I've booked with them twice already and will continue going to them! HIGHLY recommended ):

Stella and Simon had a great time with the Kimberlins. The Kimberlins were great about keeping us updated about our the our dogs had and communicating about a shortage of dog food. They were accommodating with our schedules and the dogs came home clean (especially after some rainy days while on their dogvacay). We'd recommend the Kimberlins and plan to use them again for future visits.

We love Jacqui's family and our dog Yoda does too! She sends regular pictures and short videos to let us know how he's doing when she keeps him. She has a daughter who also spends time with the dogs and they all seem to adore her. Jacqui is very aware of the personalities of the dogs she watches and how they will mesh. We have now become regulars and we definitely recommend them!

True dog lovers and great hosts.
The Kimberlin's went above and beyond, loving our furbabies like they were their own!

We had to leave our two large dogs about 2 weeks and this was the first time I ever left them this long. I have to admit I was nervous but Jacqui sent photo updates almost daily and I could see how well the dogs were being cared for first hand. She also sent us emails with updates.

Upon returning home, our dogs were not anxious to leave Jacqui's care because they had been so loved while staying with her.

Our dogs will definitely be return guests when we travel again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this family as they are kind, loving and patient (even with needy dogs!)

We are so fortunate to have found Jacqui and Stanley. Our dog Casey was relaxed, content and safe while we knew she would be cared for there just as she is at home. We definitely will use Jacqui and Stanley in the future when Casey needs a safe and fun place to stay. We loved and appreciated the frequent updates and photos during her stay.
Thanks so much Jacqui and Stanley!

The Kimberlins were absolutely amazing! This was our 1st time leaving our 1 year old Maltipoo and we were gone for 10 days. We were so nervous about leaving her, but after our meet and greet, we knew we had found the perfect caretakers for our little girl. They were super gracious with the drop off and pick up times and put up with our “over protective parent” requests. They sent us updates and pictures and even did Face Time (although our baby could not care less as she was too busy having fun!) They took care of her as if she was their own, which meant so much to us. The Kimberlins are such a warm and caring family, we couldn’t image leaving little Cali with anyone else.

I am so pleased with Jacqui, Stanley & Bella! My 14 year old chihuahua had the best stay away from home she's ever had. With her being an older dog, I was so nervous to leave her anywhere, but after meeting with them I knew that Princess would be well taken care of and she was. Receiving pictures of her daily made her distance so much easier. I will definitely use them again and will be referring anyone needing a vacay spot for their furry family member to them.

The Kimberlin's were great with our two corgis. Jacqui is very knowledgable about dogs and taks a special interest in healthy eating and playing. She's a joy to talk to and he dogs loved her. Stanley greeted us when we dropped them and although the dogs had lots of nervous excitement, Stanley handled them well with the calming help of Bella, who both dogs attached themselves to. We'll be back soon.

Great as always!!!
When we first met with Jacqui and sweet sweet Bella, we were instantly put at ease. The first time I dropped my Kensi off with Jacqui, Kensi kept following me around and didn't really understand why I was leaving without her. The second time I dropped Kensi off, she ran towards Jacqui and didn't even look back towards me. My Kensi can be really shy, so when she ran to Jacqui, I knew right then that this was the perfect fit. I won't go anywhere else.

My dog Daisy had a very good time with the Kimberlins. They took good care of my very active young lab. Highly recommend them!
Jacqui, Stanley and Bella are all wonderful with Trooper! I completely trust them and know that my pup is in great hands while I travel. They've gone above and beyond to work with my strange drop-off/pick-up times and make Trooper feel like he is a part of their family. I would suggest them to anyone!

First, let me say that Jacqui and the Kimberlin family are wonderful! We had never left our dogs with anyone other than close family/friends—the dogs are very special to us and we tend to spoil them! I was having a hard time finding someone to keep them for our week-long vacation, when I found the Kimberlins. Even though my request was fairly last-miunte, Jacqui was very accommodating and so easy to work with--she put me at ease from the very first contact. She and her family take their responsibility very seriously, and treated our dogs as family, not just boarders. The dogs received love and attention, affection, treats, daily walks and lots and lots of petting. Jacqui sent several pictures each day and gave me little updates. She administered oral medicine to my older dog twice a day. I had complete peace of mind, and never worried that the dogs weren’t happy or comfortable. The Kimberlin house and yard are immaculately clean, and set up to be warm and welcoming to furry friends.

I highly recommend the Kimberlins for the very best care for your dogs. They go above and beyond, taking care of their dog guests as their own, and are very kind and accommodating. First rate! I will absolutely look forward to using them again the next time we go out of town.

The Kimberlins were nothing short of exceptional from our first interaction. Before we chose to board with them, we requested a meet and greet. Jacqui is responsive and fast to every inquiry and message we sent, often replying within an hour or even quicker. We stopped by their home about a week before we had to board to introduce our pup to their family. It was apparent that the Kimberlins have significant experience in dog care. They had a plethora of toys, dog beds, and people to care for our pup. The questions Jacqui asked also indicated their high level of experience both with their own dogs as well as many different types of breeds. I also like the fact that they are extremely active in animal rescues, shelters, etc. My wife and I both recognized quickly that they would be a great home for our pup, and would do nothing short of spoil him during our time away.

We dropped our pup off a few hours before our flight out and before we even reached airport parking, we already had photos of our pup playing in the yard, interacting with other dogs, and being pampered. This would become the norm, receiving tons of photos daily to update us on what he was doing. It was almost like getting a daily journal of our pups experiences. We also got typed summaries of the pups adventures, his new friends, his habits and his health. As our dog is prone to allergies of any type, the Kimberlins took great care and caution along the way to ensure he had a great experience and that he would be rested, refreshed and even healthier when we picked him up. The extra notes, photos, and even the souvenir he received at the end of his stay are incredible personal touches which made our experience with this family even more unique and fulfilling. From here out, we will not hesitate to travel for vacation or work, as we know we have found a great second home and family for our pup. We truly appreciate everything the Kimberlins provided for Miller during his stay and we are looking forward to dropping him off again during our travels, since he had such a great time!

I was very pleased with Jacqui K and her family. They were all very friendly and took great care of my dog. I especially loved all the great photos they sent to let me see how my dog was doing with them. I would recommend Jacqui and family to anyone. I plan to use her again whenever I have to leave my dog behind on a trip.

Jacqui was fantastic at accepting a last minute day care, even without a meet and greet! She and her daughter Bella provided love & a nurture to Kyla,my 14 yr old Bichon with a heart condition and instant friends for Puff,my very social 13 yr old Bichon. He was in hog heaven and Kyla was chilled. I received pictures immediately, if Puff could drive, he'd be there now, lol. If this happened a week ago (before her heart issues caused by her Bichon Buzz) Kyla would've been a bit more playful! I'm very concerned as to Who cares for my babies! We are confident that they received the quality of care & love that we provide them 24/7! We will be back!!! It was nice to take my father who is visiting from CA, to brunch. Thank you again Jacquie & Bella, Warmly,
The Martin's

Once again my Mocha and Latte received the very best care from the Kimberlin family! The photo updates are so great and makes you feel at peace! Their presence is so welcoming as they are genuine , down to earth 100% dog and animal lovers! They truly care for our pets and treat them with the same love and nurturing as they do their own furry family members! I have just come to love this family and my puppies LOVE visiting the Kimberlins!!! It is a wonderful, clean, loving environment and words cannot express the fantastic experience that myself and my babies have had with this family!! I recommend them with the highest of praise! Susan , Mocha, Latte!

Jacqui, Bella, and Stanley were absolutely amazing with Firefly. This was the first time I was leaving her since I've adopted her and she had recently injured her leg jumping off the bed and I couldn't have been more comfortable and confident that she was in the right hands for the weekend. They treated her like she was their own and sent me pictures throughout the weekend and Jacqui almost cried when we came to pick her up, just going to show you how much she loves taking care of your pet while you are away. I would recommend her to anybody I know looking to go away. I live in Fort Worth and I would, without hesitation, drive the extra distance to their home to have Firefly stay with them again before even considering anyone else! They were absolutely incredible and I couldn't have asked for a better experience for my baby girl!

I just moved to Dallas from Florida March 1st of this year. I moved here on my own with my two babies Mocha and Latte. I was very anxious to find someone to care for them as I have to travel somewhat frequently. When I saw Jacqui's information and photos I just new this was the fit. As soon as we walked in the door of the meet and greet I felt an overwhelming sense of love, comfort as did Mocha and Latte. The Kimberlin family were fun, relaxed and absolutely wonderful. It is a great environment for any dog as they have a GREAT home and yard! Jacqui makes these awesome treats and is so creative and all about love and safety for your loved ones. Bella is a love and she let Mocha and Latte sleep with her as they do at home. They tailor the stay to your dogs needs and schedule is simply amazing. The dogs are never alone and that was very comforting to me. Jacqui sent pictures via email a couple of times daily to let me know and see they were having a blast!!
Simply put I recommend the Kimberlins to anyone and everyone who is looking for a kind and loving family to watch your loved ones. They are more than qualified and do it out of the love for dogs and people. I have found a home away from home for my Mocha and Latte with the Kimberlins!! Thank you so much Dogvacay!

The Kimberlins offer our two dachshunds a cozy family setting and lots of attention, not to mention yummy homemade treats! We always feel comfortable leaving them in such a warm and affectionate household.
As always our babes love staying with Jacqui and family. We never worry about them because we get photo updates which we look forward to during our trip. The babes love the homemade doggie cookies. Michele
Where do I begin? Jacqui is amazing to work with especially since our reservations were beyond last minute! Mercedes fell in love with Jacqui and the entire family instantaneously!
Its so comforting to know we have her when we need her!
I HIGHLY recommend!

I never worry about our babes while we are traveling; we receive numerous photos and updates on how they are doing. Great home away from home. Jacqui's family are true dog lovers and it shows.
The Kimberlins took wonderful care of our boys! We have a quiet small one and a social big one and Jacqui and Bella took care of both of their needs. One of them also needs to have his ears cleaned every few days and she took care of that too. Made them special treats (with our permission), sent us lots of pictures, and even made a mid-week doggie progress report. The house was very dog friendly but didn't smell like dogs, have tons of hair everywhere or anything. t couldn't ask for a better family to keep our boys with!

This was the first time I have used DogVacay before and Jacqui made it a great experience. From the moment we did our meet & greet I knew that Jacqui and her family are passionate about dogs and were ready to provide my dog with a warm, loving, and playful environment while I was away. I received several email/text updates with pictures so that I always knew how my dog was doing. When I finally picked my dog up, I could tell that she would be missed and my dog really did enjoy her time with Jacqui!! Thanks!

Our babes were well cared for and we received numerous pictures so we they were in good hands. You always know how things went by how fast your babes run or don't run to the door when you arrive to pick them up. We will absolutely use them again.
I wasn't sure if anyone was going to want to dog sit my THREE. Two being hounds and anyone with hounds understands, they are not the quietest of the Canine family. Although, we hit the mother load when we found Jaqui,Stanley and Bella. They were wonderful from day one when we had our Meet and Great day. Jaqui made sure to know the habits of our dogs (each of them) and while we were away, she updated us to reassure all was well.
Jacqui and family a huge relief. My sister and I now do not have to worry what to do with our four legged kids Jacqui, Stanley and Bella have it all under control.

PS Our dogs LOVED the homemade dog treats that Bella made for them.

I rate a 5Pawsome!
