About our Home Boarding

We regret that we are know fully booked for this year.
My name is Mary Jacka and I love❤🐕🐶🐩🐈dogs I have always had a dog, but 2016 I lost my very dear dog Bertie he was a cocker spanial (gold) and he was my very best friend as you will know how that feels, I miss him every day. I decided not to go through that hurt and pain again and thought how wonderful it would be to have a pooch B&B. I have had amazing dogs and met fantastic owners who love and care sooooooooooo much for their pooches


My garden is very safe for your pooch, I am registered with Broadland Council who came for an inspection and were very satisfied that my garden and home came up to their standards. I also hold a certificate covering first aid for dogs.


your pooch will have regular excerise , one around 8.00 am and again between 1.00and 9pm no matter what the weather🌞☔

Health & Hygiene:

I will admin medication to your pooch and keep a daily record and I like to know that your pooch is up to date with vacation and flea treatment registration forms to be completed.

Hi it's me again "Sybil" stayed at my Auntie Mary's & Uncle Bob's again this week. Just wanted to say, thanks for looking after me again, I had a lovely time. My mum has been giving me some of the liver treats you gave to her, before we left your house, smart move Auntie Mary, but when I eat them they remind me of you & Uncle Bob, then make me feel sad, cos I miss you. Looking forward to seeing you again real soon. For kisses cuddles & walks xx

Hi My name is Sybil, and I what to tell you what it is really like to stay with Mary. It took me a few days to settle in before I realised my mum was off on holiday again, I wasn't nice to Mary.... very grumpy and totally ignored her the 1st day. But when I found out I had the run of the private enclosed garden( I am a bit of an escape artist)and house, even Mary's lovely comfy bed to relax on ( I don't get that privilege at home) pole position on her lap for tummy rubbing sessions any time I wanted them (I am so demanding)and then to top it all little pieces of home made liver hand fed when I gave her my brilliant sad face.... yippee I thought (party time) I started to cheer up no end. Mary then introduced me to the art of Yoga, the buddist chants were so relaxing that I became a happy chilled and content dog, ps...... I am pretty good at the downward dog yoga position too. Thanks Mary for giving me a fabulous holiday away from home. Don't tell my mum, your my favourite 🐶🐶🐶

My border jack cross dog Sybil aged 10, has just finished her 3 week holiday in the care of Mary. Sybil didn't want to come home as she has had such a wonderful time, Mary kept me updated on how Sybil was settling in with regular Whatapp txt and photos, it really put my mind at rest. This was definitely a home from home experience. I definitely will be using Mary's services again.

Last week our "enthusiastic" pooch Harry had his first visit to Mary and Bob. We were anxious about leaving Harry as he is a bit of a handful and at only 1 year old is both energetic and exhausting! However, Harry settled in straight away and was so well cared for by Mary and Bob.I loved receiving the photos and text updates and I could see that Mary had got to know him well and was caring for him with love and affection. I would definitely recommend Mary and I would definitely book again - but she is popular so book early!

We left our very energetic 5 month old Portuguese water dog puppy with Mary overnight for his first stay away recently, and both Mary and Bob really put our minds at rest. They were fab and we cant thank them enough. They both clearly love dogs and take care of them as if they are their own - I only hope they have availability next time we go away, she's a very popular lady!!

5 From Helen on

I have been very happy with the care my dog received from Mary. He was very happy to be left and equally happy when He returned home. Thank you very much for looking after him so well.

Rumble loves going on his holidays to Marys while we go away on ours. It is lovely to know he is being so well cared for allowing us to relax and enjoy our time away. Although I fully recommend Mary I just hope she doesn't become too popular!

5 From Paula Harrison on

My Lulu has stayed with Mary and Bob two or three times. I have nothing but praise for them both. Lulu is always very happy to see them and this puts our mind at rest, knowing we are leaving her in good hands.They are both very kind caring people and love their dogs.

Our little Cairn rescue, who has 'issues' was cared for beautifully by Mary. Badger played happily in Mary's garden, doing her party tricks, and when we came to collect her, she looked very much as if she would like to stay for ever!

Boarders Response:Thank you Sue and Sally for your very kind comment Mary xx

Mary looked after our boy very well, he was happy and well cared for and had lots of good walks which he does enjoy. Mary really does care about dogs and works on their own personalities as each dog is different. He will be making a return visit when we next go away.

We have a 3 year old Labrador and had never left him with a carer overnight before. We never found the right person, but Mary really put us as ease and clearly loves dogs, so our dog stayed overnight. We were worried if we had done the right thing and really missed our dog, but Mary sent us updates and videos and when we went to collect him, he looked so happy and at home and had clearly had a lovely time. We will definitely be returning and would recommend anyone to visit Mary.

5 From Ann on

Our Shih Tzu stayed with Mary last week and was very well cared for - she was very relaxed when we went to collect her and we could tell she had been happy in Mary's home - we were so worried about leaving her as we have tried a few other carers but we have finally found someone that we know our pampered pooch is happy with and will be leaving her with Mary again when we go on holiday. Mary sent us pictures during our holiday to our put minds at ease.

5 From Nicola on

This was the first time I left my three year old boxer with Mary. Although he can be quite a handful at times, Mary kept him more than entertained for a week whilst I was on holiday. He was so well cared for and I would thoroughly recommend Mary to anyone who needs their dog looking after well. Mary was extremely friendly and kept me up to date with pictures throughout the duration of my holiday to put me at ease. Her house is the perfect layout for a dog who is used to having the free roam of the house and garden. Thank you Mary

Betty, our rescue dog, stayed with Mary for 10 days. She had visited Mary a few times prior to our holiday as Mary had suggested this would be good idea as Betty was extremely nervous of new people and things. After only two short visits she was very excited when we approached Mary's house. When the holiday came along, I was totally relaxed about leaving her as I could see that she was very happy to be with Mary.She seemed very settled when we returned home. We have already booked her in again for another holiday with Mary.

5 From Trish Jessett on

After taking Nacho to meet Mary several times before our holiday we could see how comfortable he was in her company. It was good to be able to go away knowing that Nacho was being well cared for and in safe hands. We would not hesitate to use the excellent service provided by Mary again.

5 From Ron Ing on

Charlie stayed with Mary and had the most wonderful time. Mary is a lovely lady, a true dog lover, and made Charlie and me feel most welcome in her home. It was so nice to be able to go away and relax knowing that Charlie was having a great time too!.

5 From Shirley Gabriel on

Our Bella - an enthusiastic and energetic but well-behaved 6 year old Springer Spaniel - spent a fortnight with Pooch B+B, and loved it. I cannot recommend them too highly. A very happy doggie stay. We have an aversion to leaving my dogs in 'kennels'; we're very particular and need to know that she will be looked-after in a caring family environment. Bella will stay with her 'Auntie Mary' again, without any doubt.
