Hi my name is Jackie. I have many years of experience with walking and boarding dogs. I also volunteer my time to the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind. I have two dogs Hope and Boston, along with my two boys ages 11 and 14 and a great husband that loves dogs.
We will take care of your pup as if they were our own. My two Labrador's will welcome your dog with open paws. Between my dogs and my boys your pup will be very entertained in our fenced in yard. My home will be your dogs home away from home.

Jackie is an amazing host that made my coco feel just at home. He is a 1 year old pug and got along great with her two Labradores. She updated me everyday with pictures and stories of how he was doing. When we went to pick him up after a week there he almost didn't want to leave. He had a great time and would 100% use her again and recommend her to anyone. There's a reason she has so many repeated guests because she is the best!!!

What a great experience!! After a nightmare experience at a pet hotel, I went looking for something better and what I found was so perfect! For starters, I have a 90lb lab- sometimes his size intimidates people, but Jackie was great with him and she has labs, so she understands their personality. We had an initial meeting and you could tell that the dogs are welcome in her house and my guy felt right at home.
While we were away we got texts and photos detailing what a good time he was having, it was very reassuring to know he was not locked in a cage but was happy and hanging out with some other dogs in a safe environment.
When we got home our dog was not exhausted like he is after the hotel, he was his normal goofy self.
I would not hesitate to book with Jackie again! And I would encourage you to give her a try too!!

Jackie is super responsible and nice to my dog, Sam, and we received daily updates from her with pictures. Her house is nice and clean, and has two labradors to play with mine. It's very important to know our furry baby is in good hand, and she's the one! Will definitely book her again!

p.s., we came home with a nice hand written note and our dog's photo as gift!

Maelee says she had a WONDERFUL stay with Jackie and family.

Mom and Dad were very relieved to receive daily updates including pictures of our girl having fun.

Leaving your FurBaby with someone else for several days is never easy - feel confident in using Jackie.

My Girlfriend and I took a trip to Colorado for 7 days. I left my Labrador, Archie with Jackie and her family. I can honestly say I never worried once about him the entire time, knowing he would be well cared for. I would highly recommend her for anyone's needs. Thank you Jackie, for being so good to Archie.

Jackie is now our go to person to take care of Peanut. We brought Peanut on her first DogVacay and were extremely satisfied on Jackie's services rendered. Peanut came back super happy, calm and we could tell her training was reinforced. Thank you Jackie. Will definitely use Jackie M again for any services.

I have used a pet hotel for an overnight and was mortified to ever leave Peanut alone again. I never thought my experience would be so warm and carefree as I left my Peanut with Jackie. Jackie was truly a comforting and reassuring host. She was keen on following Peanut's diet. Consistenly followed up with messages and pictures to update on Peanut's well being. Her Labrador Retrievers (Boston and Hope) are so well behaved they reinforced Peanut's training. I am definitely glad we were able to meet Jackie through DogVacay and will use her services again. I strongly recommend Jackie M for any services needed.

Jackie and her family openly welcomed our dog for a busy week of activities ... Including her son's birthday and a party for one of the pups who also had a birthday. We have already made our next reservation!
Asia's week with Jackie was outstanding. We were away for Asia's first birthday and Jackie was creative and had a birthday party for our puppy. All the dogs at Jackie's house wore party hats and took some really cute pictures which she sent to us daily. Great communication and a warm and secure environment.

Jackie provided another great vacay for Brody. He was so excited when we arrived at her home. He immediately greeted her and her dogs and began to play! Thanks Jackie for once again taking excellent care of my baby!
I made a pre- visit with my dog Holly and we were both impressed with all. Jackie's two Labs are so well behaved. Holly's visit these past few days was wonderful for both Holly and us. Jackie kept us in the loop with daily pictures and texts to our cell phones on her activity. Holly will definitely be a return customer in the near future.

Absolutely wonderful! Jackie accommodated my schedule and really enjoyed having my dog stay with her family. Highly recommended!
My dog Roxie is a 1.5 year old lab with a lot of energy. This is the first time we have left her with anyone and we could not have asked for a better environment for Roxie to stay. Jackie was great and made us feel very comfortable leaving Roxie. Her home is very dog friendly and Roxie seems to have had a great time. We will be using Jackie again and highly recommend her.

Jackie was amazing with my dogs! I felt such a connection and will never use anyone else to watch my girls! She sent us updates and photos threw out their stay and even gave us an adorable photo of them when we picked up! Highly recommend her!
From the moment we had our meet and greet to the moment we picked up our dogs from an overnight stay, I knew Jackie was going to be great and she was! Her home is very pet friendly. She also gave me updates(text and photos) on how my dogs were doing. I would diffidently recommend her and most diffidently use her again! Thanks Jackie!

from a people point of view - Peaceful!
Jackie was very accommodating to any of "Chocolate Chips" scheduling needs (food, treats, sleeping arrangements, walks, etc.) Her daily pictures and updates were fun and comforting.

from Chips point of view, my guess would be "pawsome". What 18 month old lab doesn't like to run and play and he made new friends!

Perhaps the best compliment I can give was said by my husband, when Chip got home, "it doesn't even look like he missed us!" Chip was happy, relaxed, tired and content to get back to his home routine, with no adjustment needed -

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you - Jackie you are a gift to Chip and our family!

Excellent experience! I'm very happy that I found DogVacay and Jackie. My dog became part of her family when he was with her. I will use her again.
Jackie is a great dog sitter! She sent plenty of pics so we could see our pup enjoying herself. Jackie's resident dogs are super sweet playmates. Our pup had a good time and we felt very comfortable leaving her. We will definitely book Jackie again!
We had to book a last minute reservation with Jackie for our two dogs Hobo and Rufus when our previous sitter had to cancel. We were stressing a little because we had travel plans made and now had to worry about finding a new sitter at the last minute. Well I can tell you we hit gold when we found Jackie! She arranged an immediate meet and greet and put our fears to rest. She and her husband and two dogs welcomed us with open arms (and paws) and put us right at ease. During our trip Jackie sent us such cute photos of our boys who obviously made themselves right at home. They had a great time romping in the back yard with Hope and Boston. So much so that when they got home, they just wanted to sleep! I highly recommend Jackie and her family. They are obviously dog lovers who take excellent care of their dogs and yours. I will definitely use Jackie's services again. In fact she will be our go-to sitter! Thanks Jackie! You are awesome!

We needed a vacation. We left Tyson with Jackie for a whole week. There is nothing better than knowing that while you're on vacation you can confidently relax and truly enjoy it because your dog is also enjoying HIS vacation at Jackie's house - which was obvious from every single photo/update Jackie sent. Jackie and her two sons treated our pup as if he was their own - - from our hearts ... Thank you Jackie!

P.S. Tyson misses his pal Boston!

Charlie has the best time coming to your house.
Molly had a great vacation at Jackie's house. This was my first meet and greet through this site and once I met Jackie there was no reason to do any more. Jackie put me at ease right away and was great with Molly. She took care of her like she was one of her own. Molly loved playing with the other dogs and running in the backyard. I loved getting daily updates and pictures of Molly on my phone every morning. It put a smile on my face knowing she was so happy. Haven't been home for an hour and have already booked Molly's next 2 vacations with Jackie. It's always hard leaving one of your babies, but it's wonderful to have someone that you can trust when you go away!

Jackie was great. We did a meet and greet first to make sure all dogs got along and it worked out really well. The fenced yard was perfect for my older dog. Jackie sent me pictures along the way and I was very comfortable that Daisy was well taken care. Would definitely use Jackie again. Thank you!

Jackie did an amazing job in taking care of our Goldendoodle Charley. She provided updates every day for us and she took care of him like he was part of her family. Charley will definitely go back when we go away again.
Yet another great stay for our pup, Jack! He had a great time during his daycare this weekend. Jackie was right on time with updates, and is, as always, very flexible with pick up and drop off times. We'll be seeing you again soon!
Jackie and her family were so wonderful with our dog Eli .We had such peace of mind while we were away.We already made another reservation :)
Jackie and Mike immediately put our minds at ease at our initial meet & greet, and took great care of our pup, Jack this past weekend! It's easy to tell they are passionate about their own animals as well as those they take in for sitting. I was updated with messages and even pictures of Jack each day while we were away. Jackie is extremely flexible with pick up and drop offs, I highly recommend her and her family for your pet sitting needs! We will definitely be back!

My dog Penny was a very happy girl staying with Jackie and her family. She is looking forward to going back to play with Jackies two sweet Labs. They are the best and I highly recommend her.
Thank You Thank You Thank You. Myself and wife could not be happier with Jackie. We used her to watch our 2 year old yellow lab for 3 days and everyday we got pictures and updates on how Jax was doing. I would highly recommend using her.
I was extremely pleased with Jackie's services. I have used others before and always felt it was only about the money. Jackie takes real interest in the dogs and doesn't keep them locked up in a small area. Her home is their home. She gives you progress updates and sends pictures. VEry HAppy with my experience and have more dates in future set up, knowing our dogs are in good hands.

Sophie's visit with Jackie was wonderful! My sweet dog was happy and relaxed when I picked her up. I knew when I left her she was in good hands, and as a result I enjoyed my time away and enjoyed the photos she sent of Sophie every day. Jackie is very experienced and took great care of Sophie. I am already arranging for another visit with Jackie which Sophie is looking forward to!

Jackie is a true dog person. She made us feel extremely comfortable leaving our pup with her from the first meet-and-greet to the day we picked him up. The daily updates reassured us that he was enjoying his time with her and her family. She was incredibly sincere and made sure our pup felt perfectly at home - even let him sleep with her in bed. Her two dogs Hope and Boston are wonderful, well behaved and matched perfectly for our pup to spend the week playing his heart out. In addition, she ensured he got plenty of exercise with daily walks. Her home was absolutely the best place our pup could stay; it was a true vacay for him. We highly recommend a Doggy Vacay with Jackie.

After meeting Jackie we felt very comfortable leaving Max there for the weekend. She sent pics and status every day and he was having a good time playing with the other dogs. He came home tired and proceeded to sleep the rest of the day. Jackie really cares about your pet and even gave us a picture when we picked him up! We plan to book future vacays with her also!!

Jackie & her family were phenomenal!! I was a little nervous because my Lexi had been diagnosed with diabetes 5 months prior to our vacation and needed a little extra care, but she was definitely well taken care of. She had her special meals and insulin injections twice a day and she came back to us in great shape. The one thing I found most comforting was the daily picture and quick update on how Lexi was doing. It really helped make missing her a lot easier. I would highly recommend this loving, caring family if you want your pet to be taken care of as if it was their own!! *****

Charlie enjoyed his stay with Jackie. She took such good care of him like he was part of the family. Charlie came home happy and relaxed. Thank you again for watching my baby boy.
Amazing caretaker for our basset hound. We now have a dependable person that we can go away with piece of mind. Jackie and Family treated our dog as if it were her own. Our bassett hound was given back to us in excellent shape. If I did not mention it, Jackie sent pictures of Abigail with her family on a daily basis & @ times more often.
I have had our bassett hound to other sitters but using Jackie via dogvac is second to none.
Thank you Jackie for allowing us that piece of mind. We will see u soon!

As soon as I spoke to Jackie I knew I could trust her to take good care of my dog Murphy. Not only is she very knowledgable and experienced, but she welcomed him as a part of her family. Murphy and her son became "best buds" and he even slept in his room. This was the first time I didn't leave him with family but Jackie makes you feel that her family is yours. The daily emails and pictures are a nice touch. I am excited that I can do more traveling and not feel guilty about leaving Murphy home.

Brody stayed with Jackie and her wonderful family for the second time. Once again he was well taken care of and came home tired from all his playtime with her dogs and other guest dogs. Jackie sent me texts and pictures each day so I could see how great Brody was doing. I feel very confident leaving my baby with Jackie.

Jackie is an outstanding sitter. The pictures provided during my vacation were very helpful and validated that my puppy was quite content. Highly recommend. Mike T.
Jackie and her family are true dog lovers! We felt totally comfortable leaving our precious dog with her. My dog doesn't usually get along with most dogs, but she was happy with Jackie's dogs. I will definitely be using her pet sitting services again. Thanks!

Jackie took such great care of our dog! We appreciated her updates and cute photos. She is truly a dog lover who understood our pet's needs and treated her like a member of the family. We have already booked her for our next vacation and know that Indu is looking forward to going back to play with Boston and Hope!

We were so happy with Jackie and her family! They took great care of our husky Sky. It's obvious that they love dogs and loved having Sky stay with them. Jackie sent daily updates on Sky's progress and sent photos so I could see how well she was settling in. Jackie has two friendly dogs that Sky enjoyed playing with. Her home is lovely with a lovely large back yard for the dogs to play in. Will definitely be leaving Sky with Jackie in the future and very much recommend her as a safe and caring pet sitter for your dog! Thanks Jackie!

We could not have found a nicer and more loving sitter for our mini labradoodle Teddy! Jackie is a wonderful person and we will surely use her again to watch our Teddy! Jackie sent us daily texts and pictures of our baby. It was very reassuring to us that she kept us updated. Teddy also made two new fur friends - with Jackie's dogs named Boston and Hope. We highly recommend Jackie!!! Thanks again Jackie :-)

Brody had a great time on his dog vacay thanks to Jackie and her family. It was great getting messages and photos of him while we were away. When we looked at the photos we could see how happy he was. He came home tired from so much play time! We will be booking another stay for him very soon.

Jackie and her family made this a wonderful experience from beginning to end! I felt my 8 pound "princess" Chloe was treated like a member of the family.The pictures I received always made me smile-from snuggling in bed with her son, being hugged by her niece and posing with her new dog friends. Chloe truly got a vacation of her own! The only negative is Chloe misses her new friends.I highly recommend her!

Coco had a great experience staying with Jackie and her family. He easily made himself "at home" and it was comforting to know he was in such good care. We would definitely board Coco with Jackie again!
This was the second time we had Zig Zag stay with Jackie. She was an amazing host and sitter and we would love to have Zig Zag stay with her again. Thanks Jackie !!!
Jackie and family were wonderful hosts. Unlike many people who take care of dogs on the side with no experience, Jackie has many years of experience with guide dogs and is an amazing host. Our dog Zig Zag was so happy with her and her pooches to the point that we were worried he wouldn't want to come home! We will definitely use Jackie again. Thanks!

Jackie is very good with dogs. Hootie was well taken care of and seemed to have enjoyed her stay with Jackie. I would use her again and recommend her to others.
Mookie had an incredible stay with Jackie recently. Jackie's home is so inviting to all types of dogs. Mookie enjoyed being outside, getting exercise, being walked and played with often, and fed well. Jackie has a lot of experience and you could tell immediately. Mookie was so well behaved under her care and seemed to take to Jackie very quickly. I especially enjoyed the pictures Jackie took of Mookie during his dog vacay! I felt at ease knowing Mookie was in such great care. I loved her dogs as well, as they interacted so well with Mookie. Jackie's family took Mookie in as if he was their own. Jackie has such a way with animals....cares for them like they are her own. I am so fortunate to have found a person....a family...that is so amazing! I know where Mookie will be staying the next time we go away. Thank you, Jackie. You are the best!
