About Julie

Hello, my name is Julie and I’m a head-over-heels dog lover!

What makes me special? I'm reliable, loving, trustworthy, and I will love your pup as if it were my very own.

I know as well as anyone that dogs aren't just pets, they’re family! Nothing compares to trusting the care of your 4-legged loved one to kind and capable hands. I assure you, I am that person.

I am a freelancer with a very flexible schedule. I love having a dog around to spoil rotten and to take me for walks ;) Your pup will hang out with me and relax while I type away at my computer. We’ll take breaks to eat and play, and we’ll go on at least 3 good walks every morning, noon, and night. I go out of my way to accommodate your dog’s schedule/needs, too.

(A quick heads up: while I mostly work from home, there are 3 days a week where I need to step out for 3-5 hours. Hopefully your pup can hang solo for a spell).

If your dog has any medical issues, I am a fast learner and a stickler for administering meds on time and by instruction.

My abode is quaint and laid back—a lovely 1-bedroom apartment in the beautiful Inner Richmond. I’m just a stone's throw away from a couple of awesome dog parks - Mountain Lake & Rossi Park. And the wonderful Arguello Pet Hospital is just a block away in case emergencies arise.

My place and schedule is good for most dogs--mild mannered and not too barky. It’s especially nice for seniors who love some good R&R.

Pet care costs prevent me from having a dog of my own, but this means your precious pup is guaranteed one-on-one TLC from a loving caretaker. I will treat your pup as a niece or nephew. Just ask my extended family of happy clients. I have a solid track record of establishing strong bonds with my dogs and their families. My references will be happy to sing my praises.

Please contact me, I'd love to hear from you and your pup!

Julie is so great with dogs and our senior pup, Cooper, had an outstanding time with her! It's always a little stressful leaving a family pet, particularly when ours is 14+ years old with bladder and anxiety issues. Julie was extremely understanding, patient and had no issues with the required diapering and frequent walks. Communication was outstanding both before and during our trip. Julie sent text and photo updates which put our minds at ease. I would highly recommend Julie for your dog boarding needs and plan to contact her again for our next trip. Thank you Julie!

Julie was terrific. She's very easy to work with and our pup seemed very well-cared for and happy. We would definitely ask her to dog sit again.
We just moved to San Francisco and away from family for the first time. So we are used to having relatives take care of our beloved dog for us and were nervous knowing we had a 10-day trip coming up and no one we knew to take our pup (who we may or may not be overly protective of...). I booked Julie after reading her plethora of great reviews and meeting with her. She did a fantastic job with our dog, she sent us daily updates which erased any worry from my mind and he looked incredibly happy in all of them. She was so responsive and nice and we are so, so happy to have a trusted petsitter in our new city moving forward. Thank you, Julie!!!!

Julie was absolutely fantastic! Despite my pup having a senior grouchy/anxiety moment (my fault), Julie was willing to still watch her and sent me continuous updates throughout. She worked her magic and after less than an hour of me leaving, my pup was charmed by her and I had nothing to worry about! I also had airport issues and Julie was completely flexible with me coming later, which was so appreciated. She works from home mostly, which is great because my pup likes when someone can watch her sleep ;) I will absolutely be using her again!

We love Julie, and (most importantly) so does our dog, Henry! She is incredibly professional, accommodating, and a true lover of dogs. She bonded with our guy despite his fear of strangers, and the two of them had a great time together. We won't hesitate to book with Julie again!

We love Julie! And, even more importantly, Zoey loves Julie! When we drop Zoey off, she is as excited to see Julie as she is to see us when we pick her up. Enough said, right?
Second time the pups have been with Julie and they remembered her. Both went rushing up excitedly for kisses, so that makes me happy! Thanks Julie for a great job of looking after my puppies:)
Julie was fantastic, we will definitely be asking her to look after our bulldogs again. It was the very first time I've had to leave my bulldogs with anyone and I was so nervous. Bulldogs are prone to a myriad of health issues like overheating, choking on their food, skin and allergy issues etc. Added to that, my male is a rescue and doesn't like other dogs. Julie put my mind at ease by already having experience sitting bulldogs. My guys took to her immediately on the first meeting.

Julie was so super accommodating to make sure my babies were comfy during their stay. She turned her apartment heat lower, let them sleep on her bed with her (which is huge as they snore like crazy) and even hand fed them the first couple days when they didn't want to eat. She gave me tegular feedback and photos, which allowed me to stop worrying about them and actually enjoy my holiday. Julie, thank you SO much for being so sweet and kind to my bullies.

Julie is terrific! She loved Tucker--it was obvious by how happy Tucker was when I went to get her!

She kept me updated with photo's and messages all throughout the long weekend, even when I didn't have time to respond.

I'll definitely ask Julie to watch Tucker in the future and highly recommend her!!!

Julie watched our pup Zoey for 6 nights when we went to the east coast recently and it was great! Lots of text and photo updates (which we love) and she even took Zoey on some of her runs (which Zoey loves). Highly recommend. Thanks Julie!
Julie is terrific, she is very loving with our Edith. We have a small Chihuahua that needs lots of attention. She kept us updated through emails and photos via text. She even let Edith sleep on the bed. We will definitely use Julie on our future trips

Another great stay with Julie. She saved us in a pinch when, less than a week before our trip, our original dog sitting plans fell through, and even helped us problem solve when she was already booked for the first day with another dog. Julie is a gem!

Julie is awesome to work with. This was our first experience with DogVacay and we were a little nervous because our dog, Penny, has some special needs (including medication and difficulty passing other dogs on walks) and usually take a little time to warm up to new people.

Julie was warm, welcoming and accommodating with Penny and our schedules. We set up a meet and greet to see how Penny would do with Julie and being a new space, and Penny quickly settled in and made fast friends with Julie.

Julie kept us updated while we were away, sending pictures and brief notes on how Penny was doing. She was very flexible with our schedule with drop off and pick up time. Penny clearly had a great time and lots of love and attention with Julie. Penny may have even had more fun with Julie than she does with us :)

Having just moved to San Francisco, leaving behind our previous dog sitter, we were so lucky to have found Julie! She was great with our pups and kept in constant communication while we were away. We loved the updates and pictures sent via text - not every dog sitter does so. We will definitely use Julie again and would recommend her to anyone.

Julie was great. She took care of my pup while I traveled and I can tell my puppy was in very good hands.
Julie was great! We got a really great vibe from her, and knew our dog would be in great hands. Love the single dog policy and would definitely have her watch Maggie again.
Julie is a very professional and friendly pet sitter. My dog felt very comfortable around her. I also appreciate the text updates with pictures of my dog. The whole experience was enjoyable and easy. I would definitely consider Julie for my future dogvacays.

Julie was wonderful! I have a very anxious and shy dog who does not do well with new people and new surroundings. I was so worried to leave her, but Julie put my mind at ease. I got pictures of my dog and updates everyday. My dog rarely is comfortable with new people, but slept in Julie's bed the first night. She could not have been a better dog sitter, and my dog had a great time. There were many hiccups with my trip, including a cancelled flight when I was supposed to pick up my dog, but Julie was so sweet and accommodating. I would strongly recommend Julie, I will be leaving my dog with her again on my next trip.

Julie was awesome! This was our first time leaving our dog with a babysitter and we couldn't have been more pleased. Julie was awesome about sending us daily updates and even cute pictures and it was clear she treated our dog as if she were her own - with tons of love. We'll definitely be using Julie again soon!

Highly recommend Julie! I couldn't have asked for a better dogsitter. She understood how much my 2 dogs mean the world to me and was extremely accommodating to all of my requests. For the first time (after many disappointing dog boarding experiences) I am assured that my dogs will be in good care with Julie.

Julie did an amazing job with a spoiled dog! She is very prepared and organized for your dog's visit. We will definitely continue to use her for all our out of town trips.
Julie was really sweet with my two dogs. She sent a photo of them to me while we were away and she took great care of them. They even got to sleep in her bed, which was more than I expected from a dog sitter. I highly recommend Julie B.!
