Jackie Kemp

I’m Jackie, I provide a dog home boarding service in Egerton, Harwood, Bradshaw, Bromley Cross, Belmont, Edgeworth, Chapeltown and the surrounding areas.

At Digs for Dogs, we know from experience that traditional kennels can be a daunting and stressful place for many animals. We provide dog owners with the perfect alternative to kennels so you can be confident that your four-legged friend will receive the same amount of love and attention that they are used to at home.

With our Dog Home Boarding service, we expertly match your dog with one of our loving pet sitters to give you complete peace of mind that your pet is cared for whilst you’re away.

Me and my dogs

I live in Tottington with my partner Richard and two children, Charlie and Emily.  I’m the proud owner of my adorable dog, Jensen the Golden Doodle, my guinea pigs Basil and Joseph and our little hamster, Humphrey.

I absolutely love dogs – their love, affection, loyalty and the happiness and laughter they bring. We’ve had dogs in our family for the past 20 years and I have always been lucky to have a four-legged -friend by my side whether it be a rescue dog or to my latest addition, the newer style crossbreed of a Doodle.

My Digs for Dogs Business

For 10 years I worked for the local authority in a Children’s Centres, working with families with young children to ensure they get the best start in life. When I heard about the franchise opportunity I felt that it would be the perfect opportunity to continue working with people and families combined with the pleasure of working with dogs in Egerton & Harwood.

My home boarding team

As a dog owner myself, I understand how difficult it can be to find the right care for your precious pooch while you are away.

Digs for Dogs is a great alternative to kennels and the dogs are always truly loved and cared for. I have a fantastic team of carefully chosen loving home boarding families who provide a one to one home from home environment.

I do everything  I can to find out about your dog’s individual needs to ensure I match them with the perfect host family for them – and I can guarantee that your dog will be spoilt rotten!

We’re always on the lookout for people to become a home boarder and provide a loving home to one of our dogs in Egerton, Harwood, Bradshaw, Bromley Cross, Belmont, Edgeworth, Chapeltown and the surrounding areas.

Please give me a call on 07512 159227 and I’ll get straight to work.

Reviews about Jackie Kemp

We always use Digs for Dogs

We always use Digs for Dogs

We always use Digs for Dogs to board our Weimaraner Leo! They are always accommodating and have always found a family to take him! Leo loves his holidays with Digs and always comes back to us with a smile on his face, yes my boy can smile! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Digs for Dogs home boarding service nor their dog walking service, always very accommodating and friendly! Great people, great service
This service is excellent!

This service is excellent!

I have been a customer of Digs for Dogs for the past 12 months and have used their services on a number of occasions now. I have always found the service to be excellent- this business is clearly run by people who love dogs! My own hound is a spoilt black Lab, who loves her food, going for walks and playing with her toys (in that order). I have noticed that Poppy seems very settled with Jackie and in fact is always pleased to see her, which is a good thing for me. Once I have booked with Jackie, I receive details of the family that Poppy will be staying with and where possible, Jackie will place her with the same family each time, so that Poppy has chance to make a bond. Whilst I am away, I receive regular updates and pictures of my dog, clearly enjoying herself without me! I would have no hesitation in recommending Jackie and Digs for Dogs;  it’s a great way to have that necessary time to yourselves but at the same time feel confident and happy that your pet is being well looked after.
Digs for Dogs is an exceptional service!!

Digs for Dogs is an exceptional service!!

We have now used this service on 6 occasions when we have been going on holiday.  Our little dog Ailsa is now 12yrs old.  Over the years she has been to various dog minders and there have been issues on coming home, being quite muted for several days afterwards, and dirty. 2yrs ago I contacted Digs for Dogs after we were let down 2 weeks before our holiday. I was visited the day afterwards by them.  I was amazed by the detailed information they required, they are very thorough in their job. A holiday home was found for Ailsa at very short notice. I received text messages and photos whilst we were away which was so reassuring for us. She came back home very clean and bouncing!!  We were delighted. We continue to use Digs for Dogs and always will. It is a fantastic service the staff and home boarders obviously are huge dog lovers, they are cared for exceptionally well. We can now go on holiday with peace of mind, knowing that Ailsa is good, and enjoying her holiday as well!! Thank you so much to Jackie x

Host Profiles...

Rachel & Ian

Rachel & Ian

Rachel and Ian live with their two children Molly and Isabel in a beautiful town house in Greenmount, Bury. There is a large secure garden around the property and open countryside all around them. The whole family love all animals and love the personalities and companionship they offer. Rachel has grown up with dogs and has owned Labradors and Border Collies in the past. The family enjoy spending quality time together by going out for family days out to the seaside, walking, holidaying at their static caravan in Anglesey which is right on the beach plus socialising with friends and family. Rachel works as a PA for a local company on a part time basis and Ian works from home so your four legged friend will have company all day long plus when the girls have finished school they will have even more play time and attention! They welcome all shapes and sizes into their home and really look forward and get excited when they know their next guest is arriving. Your dog will feel very much part of the family and have the freedom to roam anywhere around the house.

Nicole & Keith

Nicole & Keith

Nicole & Keith live a beautiful detached house in Ramsbottom with their 2 children Freya & Robby. Keith & Nicole work from home so there is always somebody at home to look after a doggie guest.  Keith has grown up around dogs and has owned Labradors, golden retrievers and Scotties and welcomes all shapes and sizes into their home.  The family love walking in the surrounding countryside and have Holcombe Hill and Nuttall Park on their doorstep and the children would love a dog of their own. Your dog will feel very happy here with a dog loving family and will receive lots of exercise and one to one care.


Madeline and Glen

Madeline and Glen

Madeline and Glen live in a beautiful detached house with their two daughters Emily and Lucy in Walshaw, Bury. There is a large secure garden to the rear of the property and many great walking areas for your dog/s to enjoy lots of walks in the nearby countryside, a stroll in the woods or a paddle in the nearby river.  Madeline has been brought up with dogs and enjoys looking after friends and family dogs plus walking dogs at Bleakholt with her two daughters. They really enjoy the companionship, loyalty and unconditional love they offer plus spending quality family time outdoors when they have a four-legged friend to stay. Madeline works from home and does Swedish massage and sells gift cards and chocolates. In her spare time she enjoys long walks in the surrounding countryside, playing board games and socialising with her family and friends.

This is a great family who love all breeds and have had lots of dog experience. Your dog will feel very welcome here and receive excellent one to one care.
