About Julie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome! Thank you for considering me as a petsitter for your family member. Your pet is family in our home receiving lots of love and playtime. I offer exercise based on their abilities, always including a daily walk or time outside at the greenbelt down the street. We have a safe backyard which is fully-fenced and locked. We have a partially fenced pool which I discuss during our meet and greet. I do not leave dogs outside alone. Experience in pet health, nutrition and obedience for over 15 years.

Please see photos of our beloved eight year old cockapoo, Dillen. Dillen enjoys making friends and having pet companions. Dillen is social, mellow and loyal.

I do require a meet and greet prior to bookings so that we can meet one another and you and your pet can see our yard and home.

I require that vaccinations be current and verification provided prior to your pet's stay. I communicate through text and email during your pet's stay and will send updates and photos at least once daily. Please know your pet will be loved and cared for during his or her time with us.

** UPDATE 10.13.2016 ** Please be advised that I will not have pickups or drops offs on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve or New Years Day.


Thanks, Julie

Julie is terrific! She sent lots of photos and updates so we felt our little guy was in good hands.
Julie, you are wonderful. We are so thankful to have found you on DogVaca! Ally and Dusty are actually excited to come and visit. Your house is great and thanks for letting our little swimmer use your pool as her personal play ground.
Would not hesitate to use again: friendly, flexible and you can tell she is a dog lover.
I am always happy when Julie keeps my Frannie for overnights. Knowing she was in Julie's care left my mind at ease .
i knew Frannie she would be well cared for the entire weekend. Frannie arrives to Julie's house wagging her tail and she comes home just as happy. I will always choose Julie to care for my little doggie. Thanks Julie!!!

Julie is the best. Always keeps me informed about how things are going with pictures and texts. You can't pay someone to love your dog. Julie does.
5 stars for sure! A great environment to leave your dog at. Julie sent me pictures throughout his overnight stay and reassured me he was doing well. When I picked my dog up I could tell he had a very relaxed, comfortable stay and I will definitely use Julie again!!

Julie's been fantastic again! Taffy loves going to her place all the time!
Since I found Julie on DogVacay I couldn't be happier! She has truly been a lifesaver for myself and my two dogs. My dogs would typically stay at a local Kennel and as they have aged they weren't tolerating the environment and drastic change from a comfortable, well known home to being in kennels most of the day during their stay. Julie has been so attentive, caring, loving, and understanding of their needs, especially with taking care of older dogs. They come home tired from the excitement of staying at Julie's home but with so much less anxiety than before. I'm very grateful for finding Julie, she's a wonderful sitter and I only wish I would have found her earlier. My dogs love going to her place and are so excited when they get to stay there with her and her sons and sweet dog Dillon. It really is like a vacation for them too! Thanks again Julie!

My Frannie had a wonderful time with Julie and her family. Julie paid attention to Frannie's needs and it was clear to see she loved her job caring for doggies. I received regular updates and photos of Frannie during her stay. ...she appeared visibly happy and content. I will definitely call on Julie agin to keep little Frannie.
Thanks Julie!!

Look no further. For the best person to care for your fur babies, Julie has not only set the bar, she has raised the bar for all who care for your pet(s). Julie is loving and caring. She stays in touch by text and pictures. You can count on her to be responsible and also follow any instructions you may have. We have no hesitation in using her service in the future.

A week away from pup, Julie kept us posted on his well being and he was so so happy. Julie is fantastic!
I can only say thank you so much to Julie - she continues to be fabulous and a fantastic carer. Our pup loves her so much.
Our beloved Boston Terrier, Henry, stayed with Julie for 2 weeks while we were out of the country. We received photos almost daily. When Henry had a minor eye issue, Julie took him to the vet. She and her boys took him for frequent walks. Absolutely amazing personal attention. The end result? When we picked up Henry, he acted as if he wasn't sure he wanted to leave. Julie is great.

Will be back for more fun
Julie was a wonderful caregiver for our 9 month old Labradoodle. She sent updates and pictures of the fun they had. They had lots of playtime and walks everyday and had access to all parts of her home. I will continue to use her wonderful services for our fur baby.

Julie did her usual awesome job. We enjoyed our trip so much more knowing Louie was in great hands
Julie was great for our little Shizu Gracie. She was very attentive to her needs as an older dog with hearing and eyesight issues and made sure she was comfortable as Gracie is a sweet and affectionate dog needing lots of TLC. We got numerous texts per day that assured us she was content.

Our dogs were so happy with Julie - Harley even went swimming in her pool.
Julie was a wonderful caregiver to Lucy. She treated her like she was her own dog and we could tell that she genuinely cared about her. She followed our instructions to a T. Julie was very good about letting us know how Lucy's days would go and sent plenty of pictures.
We would highly recommend Julie and will certainly let her take care of Lucy if needed in the future

Our poodles have stayed with Julie twice and we are very particular with our "babies". Julie loves dogs and it shows. One of our poodles has separation anxiety which he displayed some on his first visit but when we took him back, he was at home happy and didn't even turn around to watch us leave. We feel very fortunate to have found Julie. Here's to more visits! Clare and Bill

Louie had a great time with Julie and Dylan. Julie sent us texts and photos daily, and we enjoyed our trip knowing he was in good hands.
Thank you, Julie! Conan had a great time. I really appreciated all the photos and updates. Also loved the flexibility on drop-off and pick-up times. I have recommended you to others. I've been telling people - Dog Vacay is like the Uber of dog sitting. Will use you again!

Amazing again, we got daily photos and texts about our pups over Christmas holiday. I can't imagine a better place for our pups to spend time. Already booked for a cruise in February. Thank you Julie.
We had Julie watch our older dog while we were on several vacations over the last year. Recently, she has started watching our new puppy, as well. She is easy to work with, flexible about drop off and pick up, and very quick about responding to requests for dog sitting. She is great with our dogs, and excellent about sending updates.

Julie provided a loving home for our dog and kept us posted with short texts and pics. Our dog was happy when we picked him up--and may have wanted to stay with Julie, I'm thinking...she takes him on better walks than we do!
Julie = PAWSOME
Once again I have to thank Julie for her flexibility and unquestionable kindness. We were stranded for a few days, but Julie was kind enough to help cover for us. I really cannot express my gratitude enough. Thanks again and again Julie! you're the best!

Julie is the best, my dog tells me so :)
Julie is great, kind and flexible. Sent me pictures of Maggie almost every day. Love working with her.
This was Bogey's first time with Julie. I don't think he missed me a bit. Julie sent me daily updates and pictures and I could tell Bogey thoroughly enjoyed all the attention! So glad I found her. Bogey now has a second home.
There is no better dogsitter then Julie. She is superior in every way!!!
Another amazing stay! We love the photo and text updates and look forward to using Julie again in a few weeks. Thanks Julie!
Once again, I cannot thank Julie enough for her fantastic care of Taffy. As we pulled up the driveway, he began to wag his tail knowing "I'm there!" He just loves it so much to go to Julie's.
If I could give Julie additional stars, I would! She's been absolutely amazing with Taffy. He loves it so much spending time with Julie, makes me jealous hahahaha... Thanks again Julie!
Julie is nothing short of amazing and a life saver. My dogs have stayed with Julie many times now and I would recommend to anyone. She gives text and picture updates while the dogs are with her which always makes me feel less guilty about leaving them. Most recently the dogs had to stay later than planned due to a cancelled flight and Julie worked with me on a later pick up time. I'm so happy I found Julie and no longer have to use a kennel for boarding when I travel.

Julie was wonderful as usual!
Always amazing. Abby never even looks around to say goodbye. Gives her meds, Los of walks and loving
Tailor had another great time with Julie. She always seems excited to see us come back but I'm not sure she is always ready to leave. I can't say enough good things about Julie - Thanks again for another relaxing vacation with no worries about our sweet little girl!

Julie was beyond incredible! She took such great care of our two babies and loved them like her own. She sent pictures and videos every day and I can't say enough good things about her.

We will definitely be having our dogs stay with her again!

Once again, Taffy spent 2 nights at Julie's. He was so happy and had such a wonderful time. I cannot thank Julie enough for her remarkable care of our dog. Highly recommended!
Absolutely an amazing, loving Pet sitter. I felt 100% confident leaving my dogs with Julie. They daily updates and photos were a sweet touch. We are booking again!
Once again, Taffy had a blast at Julie's! She's really PAWSOME. She kept me posted on how the puppy was doing, and gave tips and advices as usual. Highly recommended.
Julie was awesome! My dogs had a great time, got to walk and were loved. Looking forward to coming back!
Julie took great care of Chloe! She was kind, warm, loving and responsible. Julie sent us texts and photos and kept us updated every day. We felt that Chloe was in good and loving hands and our experience was absolutely great!
julie helped us out last minute - and she was perfect.
Julie was awesome! She helped our pup Kura with getting over her initial separation anxiety and by the 2nd day was doing great. It was wonderful Kura was with a loving family that took her for daily walks and texted us updates, it made our week long vacation so much more fun and relaxing knowing she was in good hands.

Julie was definitely "PAWSOME". I could see how my puppy was so happy after staying overnight and I didn't think he was ready to come back with me! I would definitely recommend Julie! Looking forward to the next one already....
Julie W. is a wonderful caretaker for your dog. She is attentive to detail, flexible, responsible and loves dogs. I have now used her twice for my two, each of whom has her own quirks. My sister-in-law has also had Julie care for her dogs, and our experience has been consistently good. I highly recommend her!

Tailor had a terrific time at Julie's - again. Couldn't ask for anyone better to take our little girl! Thanks for the great hike!
Abby had a wonderful time. Julie gave her so much love and attention. Felt very comfortable in leaving my dog in her care
Julie was very accomadating and made Joey feel right at home. She sent me text photos and gave me up dates on how he was doing while I was away. Thanks for making Joey's stay a good one! (And my trip better without worrying about him!) P
Julie took care of our sweet one as if she was her very own. I couldn't have asked for a more loving experience. My dog loves to take walks and Julie's neighborhood has so many green grassy areas to explore. I will certainly see her again.
Our dog had a great time with Julie and her boys! She kept us informed with texts and pictures while we were gone and he was clearly a very happy dog when we arrived to pick him up. He's definitely missing the tugs-of-war and companionship he enjoyed while there and we wouldn't hesitate to have him stay with her again in the future. Great experience!

Our dog has a lot of anxiety issues and takes awhile to warm up to new people and places. Julie worked very hard to help Pixie feel comfortable with her and in her home. She sent text updates and photos/videos as the day progressed. Julie was genuinely interested in helping Pixie to feel relaxed and happy. I will definitely use Julie again. I know my pup will be well taken care of. Thanks, Julie!!!

Tailor had stayed with Julie one other time for a short 2 day stay. This time Tailor stayed for two weeks. She was happy to see us but was not super excited about leaving. It was almost like she wanted us to stay at Julie's too. When Tailor used to go to the kennel, she came home sad and lethargic. Now she comes home the same way she left - "herself" which is super energetic and happy.
All we can hope for is the next time we need to be out of town - Julie is available!!

Julie actually came to my house and not only cared for the dogs but my 2 horses as well. I felt very comfortable leaving them with her. She was very positive when she updated me so I never worried while I was on the trip. I would definitely use her again.

Tasha has vacationed on two separate occasions with Julie and her family. She comes home happily exhausted. She has become best buds with one of the resident cats and enjoys playing with Dillion ( resident dog) and Marlie ( neighbor's dog). Julie sends lots of pictures and texts, keeping us informed about our girl. Great home away from home!

This was Tailor's first visit with Julie and sons. Tailor now has a new friend, Dillon and two new cat friends. Tailor was excited to come home but is going back to see Julie at the end of the month for some more DogVacay time. Thank you for such a great experience!!

Julie was wonderful. She took great care of Rio and was in constant contact, including sending several pictures. She is a great host.
Julie was fantastic with Zoe! She spent 11 days with Julie for the first time, and when we came to pick her up, she was so mellow and so settled, which told us that she was spoiled and happy! Thanks so much Julie! We will definitely be coming back!

Julie is terrific! I went for a "meet and greet" before I confirmed our arrangements. Julie was flexible in terms of timing and asked many good questions about my two dogs. Both dogs were on medications, and my French bulldog definitely likes to be in charge. Julie had no problem managing the dogs, their meds and early walks (because of the heat). She provided regular updates and pictures while we were away. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her, and look forward leaving our dogs in her care in the future.

Our dog Blazer stayed with Julie and her family a couple of times, one time for 2 weeks. We have never left him that long and I have to say he missed them when he got home. He loves going to her house and gets excited when we drop him off. That tells us all we need to know. She sent us pics and regular updates. Her dog Dillon is such a sweet dog. I would definitely recommend Julie and her family to petsit.

Julie was awesome! Tess had a great time with her, her boys, and her dog. We will definitely ask Julie to watch Tess again.
Julie and her boys cared for our two Golden Retrievers, Tony and Cleo for two weeks while we were visiting our daughter's family. She was fantastic and our dogs loved her. She was very easy to accommodate our desire to take our dogs out for day trips with our grandkids. She even baked us some delicious chocolate chip cookies for our long drive home to Indiana. I highly recommend her.

Julie was the perfect host for our dog. She truly cares about dogs and their well being. She was very accommodating as I had a last minute trip on Chrostmas day!! She exercised our dog which he loves and gave him toys and treats ( she asked in advance). She is quick to respond and have me updates and photos of our dog. I will absolutely be leaving our dog with her in the future. It is a great feeling to leave town worry free because of Julie!

Julie took very good care of my two, and sent me one of the best photos of the two of them ever. They came home happy, tired, and satisfied. She genuinely liked them and, of course, they were responsive.
Julie did a fantastic job for watching Kona for me and we definitely plan to use her services again. Nothing but a positive experience from start to finish.
