I treat your dogs like family and give them the care and life style they need.


My name is Jacqui Turnbull. I currently live in Murieston, Livingston, Scotland.  I provide a fantastic alternative to kennels with my dog home boarding and grooming services. I’ve always loved animals, and caring for them is my passion. I started as a dog walker and soon added home boarding to my services. I’ve been providing a professional Dog Home Boarding service since 1998 and was trained as a professional dog groomer in 2011.  I have owned three dogs, two show-type Cocker Spaniels and a Lhasa Apso. I started K9 Friends to provide a dog boarding service to the people of West Lothian. It was a relatively new concept when I started and was mainly found in England at the time. I thought there were bound to be people like me who needed someone they could trust to look after their dog when they went on holiday. So here I am. It is my genuine pleasure and privilege to care for beloved dogs. Read more about my history and experience with dogs on the ABOUT  page.

I started my Boarding business in 1998.  You can rest assured that your dogs will receive the attention, love, and exercise they need from a very experienced, competent lady while you are on holiday.  Make sure you book in plenty of time to avoid disappointment, as I only take four dogs maximum per day, and some periods of the year fill up far in advance.

First Class and very reassuring to leave our boys in very professional super safe hands 
Jacqui Looked after our boys at short notice and treated them like her own dogs so much so that when we arrived back to collect them they were just relaxing around Jacqui's lounge like it was their own house, the boys enjoyed it it so much they have rebooked several more holidays with auntie Jacqui. and the boy's dad liked it even more as the dogs have long coats Jacqui had washed and groomed them ready to go home and give dad a few days away from the grooming brush so a perfect experience for all. Thank you Jacqui

Our dog Diamond who is a Bernese Mountain Dog, has been going to Jackie for her holidays and for grooming for 3 years now. The best thing for us when we take Diamond is that she gets out of the car and runs straight to Jackie's door, bouncing and wagging her tail! For anyone leaving their dog when they go on holiday, it's a big thing knowing that
your dog is going to be happy and well looked after. Jackie also does a great job of grooming Diamond, she always looks amazing! We will never go anywhere else to get her groomed and have to make sure that there is always a boarding space available before we book a holiday as we wouldn't leave Diamond anywhere else!

We have been using K9 Friends since 2008, as a dog walking service for the 1st 5 or so years and then as a boarding service on an intermittent basis. We were very pleased & happy with the dog walking service & would have continued if it had been possible. Since then we have found the boarding facility extremely useful and the provider has always been most accommodating often taking us at short notice and taking a compassionate view of the circumstances under which we were using and this was greatly appreciated. We have also had the benefit of the grooming service which has been of high quality. In general, we have found the provider professional, helpful and trustworthy. She is very good with the dogs. We have no hesitation in leaving our dogs with her  and have recommended her to a friend

"Our Bracken, a working cocker, has been going to Jacqui for 6 years for grooming and always comes away happy, looking and smelling great, her attention to detail is spot on. She always listens to what you want for your dog and will offer advice when required, I wouldn't use anyone else. We have also used her home boarding service and were able to have a relaxing holiday knowing he was getting lots of walks and love from Jacqui. First class service that I would recommend to anyone".

"Jackie is a wonderful, friendly and trusting lady who I have known for a few years now, meeting at an agility class. My border collie Nova means the world to me as I imagine any dog owner can understand. Jackie has always made me and Nova feel at ease and I trust her completely to take care of Nova in my absence and give her the best cut she has ever had. As long as Nova is here I will never use any other groomer. Jackie has become a friend and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional skilled groomer".
