About Jacqui & Bella

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Happy New Year to everyone, thank you for making last year a wonderful experience for us here. We are looking forward to another wonderful year with some wonderful 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.

Our 9 month puppy did great with Jacqui and Bella. He was with them for around 5 days and boy did he have a good time. We were constantly getting his videos and pics and that put us at peace. Such amazing people. So glad to have found you guys. We would definitely recommend Jacqui and Bella to everyone.
Thank you for everything you do.
J, F, K :)
Edgar had the best time!!! Jacqui and Bella were the best hosts. I got pictures everyday and Jacqui responds so quickly! She also posts videos and pictures on her instagram so I could watch what my little man was doing while I was gone. I was extremely nervous leaving him for a week and I'm so glad I found these two! I will always use them when we go out of town. Rest assured here fellow animal lovers :) They are the best!
Our dogs always have a wonderful time with Jacqui & Bella. They treat them like family and we wouldn't leave them with anyone else!

We receive regular photos and updates about our dogs and know their receiving great care and plenty of attention. As hosts, Jacqui & Bella are extremely accommodating and often adjust drop-off/pick-up depending on the unreliability of airlines these days. They have been amazing with their care and attention to any number of health-related items when watching our dogs. We'd strongly recommend them!
