About Jacq
(Quarantined and can't walk your dog? I am now offering a dog walking service during this terrible time. I will give your dog/s a generous one hour walk to parks and local area.)

Hi, my name is Jacqueline (Jacq) and I live in a secure, leafy house in Lilyfield surrounded by dog parks. I offer exclusive hosting as I understand not all dogs want to share with others and placing them into a strange home with strange animals can be quite stressful, so for this reason I offer exclusive one on one hosting (no other dogs/cats/children etc.), so you can relax on your holiday knowing that your fur child/children are also having a stress-free holiday.

Up until very recently I owned two dogs of my own Jock and Poppy who died within 6 months of each other due to non related old age illnesses. Both were 16 years old. I miss them greatly, their companionship and the walks we shared together. I loved my dogs and can't bear the thought of replacing them for a long time to come as they were my family. But I miss having dog company and 'walkies'.

As of 01 Jan 2020 I am officially ‘retired’, so your fur children will spend their time with me as if they were my own, and rarely be left alone. They will receive at least two walks a day to socialise, exercise and have fun but never off the lead. Your dog/s will have run of the house and I place clean dog beds in various rooms, so your fur children can join me anywhere in the house. They will get tummy rubs and lots of loves! I do need to live and get out for groceries etc. from time to time, so I will only take dogs that are OK to be left alone for those very short periods of time. However, my partner is usually around to keep them company when I can’t.

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 that as they get plenty of walks each day and spend most of their time with me for company they only go outside for the obvious or lazing outside in the sun (see photos).

If you have any special diets, special needs, medication, special toys, lead only, no couch rule etc. I am happy to accommodate those. Usually they sleep in my room where they seem most comfortable, or nearby.

I will guarantee your dog will be treated like my own!

My pricing is all inclusive of the following:

Pet Hosting - includes at least 2 walks per day, socialising (if required), my company and full 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.

I can pick up/drop off if required within Lilyfield and surrounding suburbs for $7 each way e.g Balmain, Annandale, Leichhardt etc. Other suburbs, Five dock etc. $9.

Doggy Day Care - as per above except day care only. Flexible with drop-off -pickup times.

Dog Walking - I will give your dog/s a generous one hour walk to parks and local area. Service offered to surrounding suburbs only.

Please note: If you are a regular client please check directly with me as I sometimes block my calendar between bookings for a break but will reopen for last minute bookings/emergencies. However, I am renovating the house 01 Sept to 15 Nov so I will not be taking any bookings during this time.
Hosting preference is 1 to 14 days approx. I am currently not looking after new dogs under 3 years.

Jacq was fantastic. It's our first time leaving Quinby and Jacq was fabulous with communication, sharing lots of videos and pics which put us at ease. Quinby was welcomed as if she were Jacq's own dog. I cannot recommend Jacq highly enough.
