About Jackie

Welcome to K9 Hideaway! Conveniently located just 4 miles from interstate 485, our privately owned 8-acre property sits well off the main road in a relaxing wooded setting. Large, open areas are fenced in for your dog’s enjoyment! At K9 hideaway your dog gets an in-home style retreat with his/her own private bedroom to lounge in, a fully screened in porch to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds, and a full size walk out basement to play in if our weather gets too hot, cold, or wet. Here your dog can enjoy nature walks, time to investigate the acres of land, explore agility equipment, try some K9 Fitpaws equipment, games of chuck-it or Frisbee, and take as many naps as they like.

As your host, I am home all day because this is my full time job. If I go out to run errands or an evening out to dinner, your pup will be secure in our home with an alarm system on. I do have 4 mutts of my own that will be in the home as well, but they can be kept totally separate from your dog if needed. I want all dogs to feel safe and relaxed.

A little bit about me! My first career was as a teacher for children with Autism. I spent 8 years refining my educational skills and using evidence based techniques to enrich the lives of my students and their families. Being a life-long lover of dogs, my first venture into dog training was having my own dog, Shade, certified as a therapy dog for Paws for People. Then, while teaching in Delaware, I helped develop a program that brought therapy dogs into the school to assist children with special needs.

After moving to the Charlotte area in 2012, I could no longer ignore my desire to work with dogs, so I decided it was time for a career change. I began volunteering at the Humane Society of Concord helping in any way I could, including working at the shelter, helping with adoption events, fostering, and assisting with training and rehabilitation. I then spent time working as a trainer for a large doggie daycare franchise where I did private training, board & trains, and held basic obedience classes using reward based training methods. I am heavily involved in the sport of Flyball, training my own Flyball Dog, Nan, and competing regularly with a Charlotte based team called Turbo Paws. After purchasing our home in 2014, I have decided to open it up to other K9 friends who need a stimulating yet safe and relaxing place to be when not with their families.

I will only be hosting one dog or one family of dogs at any given time. If you have a multiple dog family my rate is $37 a night for the first dog and $15 for each additional dog. In Addition stays on the Holiday will be double the rate for that night. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Jackie made me feel at ease taking care of my high energy Border Collie. He is 5 yrs old and it was his first time away from home without his mommy and daddy. He was a happy camper as Jackie kept him entertained throwing the tennis ball and Frisbee for him on her spacious land. A heaven for dogs!! Would highly recommend Jackie and we will use her again for our upcoming trips. Thank you Jackie!!

Jackie is an awesome host for my dogs! Dogs are free to roam the house, and get plenty outdoor time in the yard. Jackie cares for them like her own, and keeps sending pictures and updates. Thanks Jackie!
She is the best!!! The dogs loved it! So much room to run and play!
Our English Setter Bella just spent a month with Jackie while we were in Hawaii and she had a fabulous vacation, as well !! She played with Jackie's dog Nan and Jackie sent us pictures of the fun they had on the HUGE area that is provided for them to run and play. If you are looking for a place to board your dog, this is IT!!! Loving care is provided and we are so happy that we have found K9 Hidaway. Jackie loves dogs and Bella loved being there. She is booked for another week in August. Check out their FaceBook page and you will see what I mean!!!

We feel very lucky to have found Jackie via Dog Vacay.
She was so accommodating with our drop off & pick up times, and it was immediately obvious that our Apollo would be in great care, during his stay with Jackie.
Thanks for your loving care, and attention for Apollo during our absence.
We will certainly seek your services again when next travelling.

Jackie was absolutely amazing with our dog Sammy. She spoiled him with tons of playtime and attention. We received daily updates and pictures. Sammy had his first birthday while in her care. Jackie celebrated with making him a toy and birthday hat. I will be using her services again and would highly recommend Jackie.

Jackie was excellent with my dogs. The quality of time spent with them was unbelievable. They had learning, discipline, loving, play and lots of fun times. Jackie, thanks for treating Holly, Katie and Chase like your own!
Wow! Jackie opened her home to my three dogs and my mom's three dogs and they made themselves right at home. Jackie spent lots of time with them, playing and even did some training with my young one. She treated my dogs like her own. I loved that Jackie sent pictures and videos of my dogs playing. I could tell that they had a great time! I'm already thinking about the next getaway! I would highly recommend Jackie.

This was my second time using Jackie and it was obvious to me how comfortable my dogs were from the moment we arrived. I loved the pictures and videos which confirmed how happy they were during their stay. She will be my choice for future trips.
I did not think Shelby (our dog) would want to come home after the pampering she received from Jackie. Before making reservations, Jackie invited Shelby and I over over to tour her place. Shelby gave it a paws up by making herself at home. While we were on vacation, we received videos and pictures via text messaging and email. That was very comforting for us, being so far away from her. (I think this was only the third vacation we had taken without her...) We knew right away she was having fun and getting lots of love and attention. Shelby chilled in her own private room, on the screened porch and even the couch while Jackie gave her belly rubs. She even played tug of war with one of Jackie's sweet pups. The yard is fenced in, so no worries of Shelby wondering off. I can say without a doubt, if Jackie is available, we will book with her again. I would be willing to plan my trips around Jackie's schedule. That is how good my sweet Shelby girl was taken care of. Jackie comes highly recommended from me and Shelby. And Shelby says thanks for the treats you sent home with her.

Jackie is an absolute wonderful pet sitter who spent so much time with our pups despite a full rainy weekend. She sent regular updates throughout the day and it was clear that the were exhausted every night. We can't say enough good things about Jackie. We completely trust out dogs to her care!

I couldn't t be more pleased with Soldier s stay with Jackie. We could tell how 'at home' he was from the pictures. Although we don t need 'doggie care' often .... this will definitely be our first choice : ) Thank you Jackie
It was so nice to have a vacation and not worry about my dogs! Getting a daily picture and report were awesome. Jackie's house was set up great for dog guests, and her huge fenced in yard was perfect for giving the dogs plenty of space to explore. She even taught them a trick with the tunnel! I will definitely use her again.

I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience leaving my dog in the trusted hands of Jackie and K-9 Hideaway. I felt more than comfortable as I was given a tour of her lovely home and know that she was knowledgeable in dog care. Jackie has set up her home to make sure that interactions between visiting dogs and her own dogs is positive. The separate potty area is nice and the back yard is a dog's dream of space and toys to play with.

Jackie was very sweet to send pictures of my dog enjoying her stay. I felt like I was being updated and kept informed about my dog's stay/experience which also increases the comfort factor.

Jackie is amazing and I plan to use K-9 Hideaway again in the future. Totally a well deserved 5 Star Pawsome experience! :)
