Hi, my name is Jacqueline and I live in a secure, leafy house in Lilyfield surrounded by dog parks. I have been looking after many dogs exclusively over the past few years to help get over the loss of my two 16 year old dogs in 2018/2019.
I have had pets all my life, from turtles, fish, mice, pigeons, cats, dogs and a horse, so I am very familiar with being around pets of all kinds. I am also an artist and specialise in animal portraits.
I am now retired so you dog will get plenty of walks and lots of company. Your dog will have run of the house and I place clean dog beds in various rooms, so your fur child can join me anywhere in the house. They will be brushed regularly and pampered!
Since the corona virus I haven’t had any dogs in my life as many dogs are enjoying being with their own family during lock down. So I decided it was time to adopt a rescue dog. I now have a gorgeous kelpie x ‘Coco’ who is 6 ½ years old. Therefore, I can no longer offer exclusive dog hosting, however I can still look after your dog in your absence and they will receive the same love and attention that I give Coco. The only condition is that they must get on with Coco. Coco is a small to medium sized dog, very sociable, friendly and sweet girl. Not a mean bone in her body.
My premise is very secure (over 7 feet high fences), very safe and dog proof. It is a typical semi with small backyard with lawn. I find as they get plenty of walks each day they spend most of their time hanging with me for company. They only go outside for the obvious or lazing outside in the sun (see photos).
If you have any routines, feeding times, special diets, special needs, medication, special toys, etc. I am happy to accommodate those. Your dog will sleep in their own bed anywhere they feel comfortable.
• All pets must be up to date with their vaccinations and worming.
• Own clean bedding and pet food.
I can guarantee your dog will be treated as part of my pack and may not want to go home!
My pricing is all inclusive. Please note the following:
Pet Hosting: - includes at least 2 walks per day, socialising, lots of attention. A hosting night is 24 hours e.g. if drop-off is AM and pickup is PM an extra day care must be added. I am flexible with the times within reason. No pickups after 8.30PM.
• Your dog must get on with Coco. Meet & greet essential.
• I am currently not looking after dogs under 3 years old.
• I can only host a single dog and not pairs.
• Hosting preference is 1 to 21 days
• I can pick up/drop off if required within Lilyfield and surrounding suburbs for
$7 each way e.g. Balmain, Annandale, Leichhardt etc. Other nearby suburbs, Five dock etc. $9.
Doggy Day Care: - as per above except day care only. Flexible with drop-off/ pickup times.
Dog Walking only: - I will give your dog/s a generous one hour walk to parks and local area. Service offered to surrounding suburbs only. I will only bring Coco if they are compatible.
I am renovating the house 01 Sept to 15 Nov so I will not be taking any bookings during this time.
Jacq is a wonderful sitter that we would not hesitate to recommend to others.
Jacq is friendly, reliable, flexible, a great communicator and very understanding and accommodating to our specific needs.
Thank you again!
Jacqueline took great care with our two dogs , kept up great communication with me sharing videos and photos of their day. I would recommend anyone who wants their dogs to be taken care of as if they were their own to go to Jacqueline, we were so happy !
I have grown up with animals all my life and know how to interact with them and sensitve to their needs.
