About Freedom Forest

 I have grown up and round dog and they have always been part of my life from an early age. I find owning dog’s really rewarding, and they give so much back in return. They are always there for you, they don’t judge, and they love you unconditionally and you can always rely on them. They are always there when you’re down, their loving smile, their affection, they wagging tails, and the companionship of always being by your side. They are protectors, and can sense the mood you’re in, and come close to you in times of need.

They are loyal friends, and even though they cannot speak, I understand them entirely. 

I have studied dog behaviour and socialising and can detect anxiety, fear, and confidence issues. Many of our customers have notices a marked improvement in their dog’s behaviour and general wellbeing. Owners that have struggled with having their dogs off the lead, are amazed with the improvements and socialising with other dogs.

I love working with dogs and enjoy seeing them content. I wouldn’t dream of doing anything else. This is my passion and I have found my life’s calling. I have never been in a job that’s been so rewarding. My aim is to give them as much as they give me.

I'm a fully qualified Pet First aider and have many years of dog handling. Whilst most of my experience has come from being a dog owner, I am conscious that there are continual changes in ways of thinking and best practice within the pet industry. At Freedom Forest we are constantly finding way to improve and develop our business.


 Emma McNamara recommends Freedom Forest. September 24, 2018 · Complete superstar service. Reliable, cost effective, friendly and most importantly trustworthy and animal loving. My dog is nearly 14 I have never left him before now as been with my parents ! Jacqueline just got him! Not sure who he loves most - he's been utterly depressed since we all got home!

 Cat Smith recommends Freedom Forest. August 10, 2018 · Jacqueline is amazing with my dogs. I have three with very different natures and they all adore her. She takes the time to get to know them individually and is calm and firm, but also kind and loving. She goes the extra mile and I trust her implicitly with both my dogs and my home. I recommend Freedom Forest and Jacqueline without reservation.

Jacqueline looked after our cat when we went abroad on an extended holiday. She was so thorough and professional before we left and kept in touch while we were away all of which gave us complete peace of mind. Will definitely be using her services again and would recommend without hesitation.

I couldn't recommend Jacqueline enough, she is very professional, caring and diligent in her work. She walks my young golden retriever and has helped solve issues with training we've had. She is always reliable and responds quickly to messages or questions.

Jacqueline is absolutely incredible with our 2 cockapoos, especially with 1 of them who is quite a nervous dog. She is very good at understanding their needs and puts that first, which is exactly what we want from someone looking after our dogs. I would highly recommend her!!!!

I have been using Jaqueline for over a year now, both for dog walking and house/dog sitting. I have found her totally reliable and trustworthy. Also, my dog Max loves her. She has a real understanding of every dog’s individual personality and foibles. I feel comfortable going on holiday leaving my dog and my house in good hands.

Jacqueline has looked after our two dogs for a year now, one of whom is highly strung and has been absolutely brilliant. She also house sits for us and looks after the chickens as well, even cleaning the house before she leaves. I have no hesitations in highly recommending her. She truly is the dog whisperer.

What a lovely knowledgeable lady. From the moment she met my 2 Rotties she showed interest and care for my dogs. I have 1 slow elder dog and 1 that thinks he is a puppy and she walks them together ensuring the both get the walk they need, at the same time. I cannot fault her in the care she has given and always treats them as if they were her own. cannot recommend her highly enough. thank you

Jackie has an inbuilt understanding of dogs and our 2 loved being looked after by her, she cleaned the house before she left too! Would highly recommend her.

Jaqui is a wonderful lady & fantastic with my GSD. She has seriously put my mind at rest as to going away. My dog is so much happier at home when I need to go away and my house is spotless upon my return.
