About Jacqueline

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
WORK AT HOME + BIG FENCED-IN BACKYARD + DOG FIRST AID TRAINED

Go ahead, take that vacation or go off to work assured your baby will get kisses and hugs (a minimum of 50 per day), consistent attention (I'm a publisher who works out of her home), frequent potty breaks, and plenty of playtime with me and my four-legged guests. My boarding and daycare guests enjoy amenities such as in-house toys, homemade treats, a spacious fenced-in backyard, frequent walks, and a comfy bed (my guests can sleep wherever they want). Please let me know if you need me to administer your pampered pup his or her medications. I provide MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION at NO EXTRA CHARGE. Additionally, I am trained in pet first aid and CPR.

Plus, The Puppy Penthouse, which is conveniently located just minutes from the airport and train station, has flexible hours to accommodate YOUR schedule.

For the safety and well-being of all my four-legged guests, please note I cannot accept boarding or daycare reservations for or allow in my home the following types of dogs:
1. Are not current on at least ALL of the following three (3) vaccinations: rabies,
bordetella, and DHLP.
2. With known or unsure aggression issues, as I usually have more than one dog at a time.
3. If I do not meet the dog via a Meet-n-Greet prior to the proposed reservation dates (your vacation/work dates).

Additionally, please be sure to complete your baby's profile prior to contacting me for a Meet-n-Greet. Without it I cannot ensure the safety of myself or my four-legged guests and therefore cannot set up a Meet-n-Greet with you and your dog.:(

Went very well and manny enjoyed his stay.
Jackie's the best. The meet–n-greet experience with Jackie was very pleasant and thorough. Rusty liked Jackie right away, and began following her everywhere. He’s been at her home numerous times, and each time it's a 5-star vacation for him. Rusty even seems a bit disappointed every time he has to leave Jackie’s home. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a loving and competent dog sitter.

Jackie is the best. Her love for each and every dog is very evident. She treats our pets as her own, with care and love. If I need a host family again, Jackie is first on my list!!! Thanks for all you do!
Amelie and Drinky had a wonderful stay with Jackie. They always looked happy and well cared on all the pictures that she sent me during holidays.

A great detail from her was that she gave me CD with hundreds of pictures from all their time with her.

I know I can trust on her to board my two pupps.

My dog, Mak, seemed to have another good stay with Jackie and her husband. They took good care of him and he clearly feels comfortable with them. Jackie was pleasant, as always, and gave me a thorough report of how Mak did during his stay. Mak always enjoys being there!

I left my sheltie mix with Jackie for the weekend. She was very careful to cover all the details. She bonded immediately with Rusty and he had a good time. Jackie's a wonderful lady and I plan to continue leaving Rusty with her.
Jackie is the absolute best ! She really takes the time and gets to know your dogs personality. They are well taken care of in a dog loving atmosphere.I can tell that my dog is happy there because when we pick her up to go home, she looks back at her home away from home fondly:)
I would highly recommend her and plan on having my dog spend time there again soon.

Jackie is so warm and loving with our Jack. Her daily updates and pics are great too! Having live nearby makes it so convenient.
So happy to have found Jackie and Dog Vacay, Miss Stella just loves her!
You couldn't ask for a better host! Jackie is very responsible and compassionate with the animals! I never worried about my dog while he was in her care. All I can say is he had too much fun!!
Jackie was just wonderful with our pup! She seems to really care and enjoy what do does. She felt very comfortable leaving our dog for the first time with her. He had a blast! Will definitely use & recommend her again.
Jackie is personable, professional and knowledgable. I felt absolutely safe leaving my dog in her capable hands and recommend her to anyone looking to give their dog a nice vacation.
I can tell that Jackie really cares about my pup. She is friendly and knowledgeable, and I trust her to do a good job with him! The photos she provides each stay are also a great addition.

It makes being apart much easier knowing he's safe and well cared for. :)

We felt very comfortable leaving our dog Jack with her.....especially after the meet and greet. She is exactly the kind of person Jack responds well to. We never worried about him once the whole week we were gone knowing he was in good hands.
We've used Jackie many times in the past year, and have always had a wonderful experience. She treats our dog as if he was her own. We can't recommend Jackie highly enough!
I like leaving Rocko with Jackie when we leave town since me and my wife know that she will take really good care of him. She is a real good host and we certainly will go with her again in our next booking.
Arte was well taken care of. Jackie was diligent with his medication and communicated with me on a regular basis. Would definitely use her again.
Jackie look after Rocko for four days (on short notice) and since our meet-n-greet we already trust her.
She was awesome with Rocko, she was sweet with him and you can say that she loves dogs and has lots of experience.
We surely will be booking with her again!

I needed someone to watch my tiny Chihuahua Yorkie mix on short notice and Jackie did an amazing job! She clearly loves dogs and my dog Haloumi obviously had an amazing time on her vacation because she came home very very happy!
Jacqueline is excellent with dogs, I could tell my dog was well taken care of and happy. She even looked behind her at Jacqueline's home when she was leaving. I heard from her during my stay away and was comforted that my dog was doing fine. I would definitely use Jacqueline again !

Stella's stay with Jackie was awesome...as ususal. Very nice to go on vacation and leave your baby with someone you trust !
My dog seemed well cared for and happy when I picked him up from his first visit with Ms. Jackie. She sent me daily pictures while he was there and gave me a cd of pictures from his stay. My dog must have had a good week, because he came home tired. :)

I told Jackie it would be a 10 **** review if I could leave one!! The boys LOVED being able to stay with her again and be spoiled, loved and treated like little kings! Since I was coming in from my new home out East, I just couldn't bear the thought of them not being close by while I took care of personal business in MI. Jackie was able to accommodate all my requests. PERFECT pseudo mom, and a lovely friend in all ways!! Thanks Jackie!!! We LOVE you!!!

Awesome, Stella had so much fun she came home and slept all night.
Jackie is the absolute best! We are so lucky to have found her. We left our 1 year old puppy, Charlotte, with her for 8 nights. This was the first time we had left our dog and Jackie made it so easy by sending us daily photos and updates. Charlotte received Jackie's undivided attention the entire stay. Jackie is such a dog lover and very knowlegeable about dogs. She has a great fenced in yard for dogs to play and works from home. Our dog even seemed a bit sad leaving Jackie's home. I would recommend Jackie to anyone and will definitely be booking with her again!

Jackie is wonderful! I felt very comfortable leaving my Sadie in her care. I received daily updates and photos. I will certainly recommend her to my family and friends.
We couldn't be more pleased with Jackie's care of Brady and Greta. Her frequent e-mails and pictures of their antics were very reassuring while we were on our trip. She obviously cares about the dogs she boards, and Brady and Greta adore her.
We could not be happier with Jackie! She took excellent care of our dog, gave him his medication, took him on walks, and even let him sleep in bed with her! She was in constant contact with us, and at the end of the stay provided us with a CD of pictures she took of our dog.

We absolutely plan on using Jackie in the future, and will certainly recommend her to our friends.

Jackie was so wonderful. She was patient, kind, and really attentive. My dog is special needs and it didn't even phase her. I would have her sit my dogs anytime!
Our puppy had such a great time with Jackie! You can tell what a dog lover she is! We felt so much better leaving our puppy with someone who works from home because our puppy is not used to being crated all day. We enjoyed and looked forward to the pictures she sent each day. You could see that Ben had an absolute ball playing with a visiting doggie friend! We would absolutely contact her again for our next vacation.

I have to admit that at first I was hesitant to leave my dog with a stranger. However after Stella and I met Jackie, there was no doubt that I was leaving my dog in a safe and loving environment. I am very happy that we found Jackie and would highly recommend her to family and friends.

Jackie is the BEST pseudo mom for my 2 boys! She was very accommodating with my schedule, and treated the boys just as I would ...even letting them cuddle with her at nite! :-) The fenced in yard and playtime with other pups is a bonus too, since I do not live in a fenced community. This certainly was a 5 Star vacay for them!!

Jacqueline was great with our dog while we were out of town! Would definitely recommend her and I'll contact her again for future trips! Thanks so much!!
My dog had a great stay with Jackie! We got regular updates via email, she was taken to awesome parks for long hikes (I think she even came home less chubby!). Regular meds were administered daily with no issues/extra cost. When we picked her up, Jackie let us know all about her stay, walks, sleeping, everything. Jane will for sure be visiting again!

Jacqueline took great care of Tia this week, she obviously has a lot of experience and knowledge about dogs, and treats each dog as an individual. Tia will be vacationing again with Jacqueline and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a loving place for their dog to stay.
