About Julie and David

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are both retired, and like to keep busy with our favorite activities, one of them which is taking care of dogs. We both love dogs and enjoy spending time with them; so owners have peace of mind while they are away from their beloved 4-legged family members. We live two blocks west of Forsyth Park where we take Darwin and guest dogs for their exercises daily. Darwin and guests go out at least three times a day. Our guests are treated like family and may sit on our laps and sleep with us, if you approve. We can only accommodate dogs less than 40 pounds. We normally accept only one dog at a time. However, dog couples/pairs are welcome with additional fee, if you advise us with a message so we change the booking maximum to two.

Fletcher had a great time. Dave and Julie sent several pictures throughout his stay and took wonderful care of him. He definitely will be back for repeat stays.
They provided the highest quality service, from welcome to departure. They sent numerous photos of our baby while we were away to relieve any concerns we may have had. We will use their services again without hesitation.
Thank you for your loving care.

We are so lucky to have found Julie and David. It is comforting to know that we don't have to worry about how Baxter is doing while we are away. He loves going to stay with them and we love the pictures they send while we are gone. Thank you :)
Katie had a great time with David, Julie and Darwin. She loved the walks in the park and romping with Darwin. We loved the pictures they sent. We knew she was well attended to. Thank you David and Julie! Katie sends doggie kisses.
I will admit, I was both excited and skeptical about leaving my Lola with strangers in a strange place... but it went great! Lola seemed to make herself comfortable quickly and I was kept updated. I thought it was an extra special touch that David & Julie sent us pictures and updates each evening. That made me a very happy momma. .. and we were able to enjoy our short stay in Savannah knowing that our fur baby was well accommodated. I truly cannot thank them enough. Next time we go to Savannah we will be contacting these wonderful folks again.

Our two dogs love staying with David and Julie. From the moment we bring them over their tails are wagging and they are exploring their now familiar environment (and dog friend Darwin). Our vacations are more enjoyable knowing our dogs are happy and seeing a picture of them every other day enjoying themselves.

Julie and David were wonderful! It was a great relief to know that my dog was in such good hands, and even that she had a great play partner in Darwin, their precious dog. I can't recommend them enough, and when I come back to Savannah, I will definitely be in touch with them. Thank you, Julie and David, for taking such good care of Violet!

David and Julie and their dog Darwin were delightful. Dr. Seuss went on plenty of walks, played and received lots of attention and love. The pictures and updates they sent to us were much appreciated as this was Seuss' first experience with staying with someone outside our immediate family.

Once again great hosts. Lucy is so glad to be dropped off with Julie and David it makes me feel I won't be missed.
We were so incredibly happy with Julie and David! They are very friendly, and kept the lines of communication open. They kept us updated on our pups and sent us plenty of pictures of their adventures. It's nice to have someone you can truly trust to love your pups just like you do!

Senga loves to stay with David and Julie...in fact she rushes in their front door and does not kiss me good-bye! I know it means her stay with them is always wonderful! I highly recommend them!
Julie and David took great care of Leia while we were out of town on vacation. They made sure she felt safe and secure during thunderstorms and during fireworks on the 4th of July. And they sent us pictures of her to keep us up to date. Thank you!
We are overprotective parents of our Mocha girl, and David and Julie were fantastic, and really put our minds at ease. The pictures truly brightened our days, and reassured us that Mocha was in the best company of very caring people. Thank you for making her feel at home.

Lucy's second Vaca with Julie and David: It had been eight or more months since her first stay and when we got out of the car to drop her off she ran to the front door wagging tail and demanding to be let in. A happy dog makes leaving on a trip so much easier on the both of us. Tim and Josie Cooper

Great time for my dogs while we were away. Julie and David take such good care of my dogs, that I never worry about their care. So happy I found Dogvavy and David and Julie!
David and Julie are wonderful. Our two Westies have a 'home away from home' with them.

This was the second time we have left them with David and Julie and the dogs feel as though they have been on a vacation, rather than feeling neglected that we've abandoned them.

We love to receive the couple of photos during their time away. Not promised but a nice touch.

We cannot recommend David and Julie highly enough. Our only suggestion is to reserve early because they do book up. Don't be left out!

Thanks so much Julie and David for taking care of our labradoodlea Bogie and Bacall. What a pleasure, how convent and so very nice for our dogs to be right in our neighborhood with caring dog lovera instead of a kennel someplace. Great service!
This is our first experience with this type of service.
We found Julie and David to be very accommodating. We arrived late due to traffic and they were very gracious. They also accommodated our 6 AM departure at the end of our stay.
They were extremely good with Sophie, she seemed to be very happy with them. In fact, we were just a little worried that she might not want to go home with us. They emailed updates with pictures and she seemed to be very much at ease.
Unfortunately, the condo where we were staying did not allow pets. David and Julie were kind enough to allow us to stop in, on short notice to visit Sophie.
We would highly recommend this service and these caretakers to anyone.

Julie and David are fantastic hosts. Our Havanese Lucy was well walked and cared for. I know this as she was much less stressed out once back in her home than when we left her with relatives or the fancy pet hotel in town. Spending time and playing with Julie and David's Cairn Terrier was good for her as well. I only hope the next month when we leave for the next wedding they will have her back.

Left my Basenji with David for 8 nights following a successful "meet-n-greet". This is our first experience with him. Providing his availability and my needs match going forward, we hope to be knocking on his door again. I was left with complete confidence that David would provide responsible care. Judging by the photos that were thoughtfully sent to me, my dog appeared comfortable and content and when I got him home, it was as if he'd never been away.
Thanks, David. See you next time.

Thank you Julie and David! Ellie had a wonderful time with Darwin. I think she had as much fun as we did on our vacation to Savannah. Truly, I'm thankful I found the both of you to watch our baby. The pictures you gave me are wonderful. Ellie misses Darwin!

David and Julie were loving compassionate for our peke-pom, Ellie! As soon as Ellie met Darwin and explored the rooms in their comfortable home, she was ready to stay! I am very appreciative of their kind care, and I give them the highest recommendation.

Julie and David are amazing! My dog, Sophie, is my baby so I'm very particular with who she can stay with, especially since she has special dietary needs. My dog stayed with Julie and David for about a week... They sent me pictures and I was able to call them just to check-in. I will definitely be a repeat customer and have full trust in them with my pup! Highly recommend!

I received a response very quickly and we had a meet and greet the same day! Jack love them from the very beginning and I felt very comfortable leaving him with them. They sent me photo updates while I was away and when I picked him up he seemed a little sad to leave. He slept all day after he got home, he must have played hard!

David and Julie did a great job loving on our dog. We actually were worried that she wouldn't want to come home with us. Definitely will use again.
Well what can I say, Lucy my Westie loves being with Julie and David as much as me!

We recently moved to Savannah and found this wonderful site. A dog lovers dream to find like minded people who will love you dog too, and that's what we found with Julie. They have taken care Lucy in to their home and hearts.

If you are like me and find it difficult to leave you beloved pets with stranger, then these are the people for you. I don't need to worry about how she's doing and if she's getting love and attention, I can tell she does when I try to take her home!!

Julie and David were wonderful care takers! When we picked Gus up he was happy, healthy, and sad to leave his Dog Vacay sitters. They sent us photos while we were away of our pup napping and playing with their dog Darwin. I couldn't be any happier. It was such a relief to travel overseas knowing Gus was well taken care of and safe.
