About Julie and Patrick

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Patrick and I would love to welcome your dog(s) into our home where they will have a ton of fun, feel safe and receive lots of love and care.

We adore dogs and want to make sure everyone who stays with us has a great experience, so we'll be sure to give your dog plenty of belly rubs, kisses and hugs, while they are with us.

They will have complete access inside our home as well as access to a doggie door which leads to a fully fenced backyard with plenty of room to play, bask in the sunshine or relax in the shade.

We have two beautiful parks nearby where we'll take your dog(s) for walks in the morning and before bedtime. If your pup likes the dog park, we can visit there for a fun game of fetch or just to run around and play. We'll be sure to send pictures and texts so you can share in all the fun.

We ask that your dog be at least one year old, fully house trained and friendly with other dogs. We also ask that your dog be under 65 lbs. (We love big dogs but our current home is not large enough to accommodate them comfortably.)

****FOR ALL NEW GUESTS, we REQUIRE an initial meet and greet BEFORE scheduling your first stay. We want to get to know you and learn how we can make your dog's visit as fun and enjoyable as possible.****

****PLEASE do not send a reservation request without first scheduling a meet and greet.*****

We look forward to meeting you and caring for your sweet dog like they were our very own!

Julie and Patrick have a very inviting home that will make any vacy amazing! They are very excited to meet new pups, and I believe that they will be wonderful host for all :)
Julie and Patrick were very accommodating during Jackson's visit. Jackson unfortunately was growling at a couple of the other dogs. Julie assured us that although Jackson was separated from these dogs, he was comfortable in a carpeted room with his toys and a blanket. He was walked at least once a day and seemed happy when we picked him up.We appreciated the daily updates and photos.
This was the first time we left Scrappy without a family member. He had a great time and came home more spoiled than when he left. Scrappy will definitely be spending more time with Julie and Patrick!!!
Patrick was awesome with our very timid Mini Aussie. She was mistreated early on, and is exceptionally timid around men, but by the time we returned, she was sleeping beside him. I would recommend Patrick highly.
Our first time using Julie and Patrick and it was a success. Remy got lots of love and attention. They were good about sending pictures and updates. Julie and Patrick were very flexible with drop off and pickup times. We will definitely leave Remy with them again!
Had our two four-legged friends stay over Xmas holiday. Was very glad with the daily photos sent, as well as being accommodating to add another day to their stay. Loved that my friends came back exactly the way I left them. Would recommend to anyone who needs to have friends stay away in a loving home.
Our 3 doggies seemed happy to be back with Patrick and Julie again, and Patrick and Julie seemed happy to have them back! The doggies seem to have lots of play time and snuggles while they are there, and are always eager to go back.
Julie and Patrick are the best! They are caring and compassionate. My dog loved staying with them. I definitely recommend them!
Julie and Patrick went out of their way to make our dog comfortable.
I highly recommend Julie and Patrick. Our mini schnauzer had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with them. She got lots of exercise and even got to visit the dog park a few times. Julie and Patrick were very friendly and accommodating and always responded very quickly to emails and messages - they even sent regular photos which was lovely. I will definitely use them again to take care of our dog.
Julie & Patrick were wonderful! They kept me updated by sending pictures the whole time & truly seemed go love my dogs. I felt confident my dogs were very well taken care of while we were away. I would definitely use them again.
Julie and Patrick took very good care of our fur babies in our home! They made sure they were well taken care of, well fed, had plenty of playtime and belly rubs and squeezed in 1-2 walks per day! We will definitely be using them again!
Julie and Patrick gave my lil man the best dog vacation ever! Usually when I pick up Tyler from a boarding or even a friend who is taking care of them he is tired overwhelmed and needs lots of his dad's love and attention. When I picked up Tyler from Julie and Patrick, you would've thought he was he was being pampered at some kind of day spa. He was happy he was content and I almost felt like he wanted to go back to Patrick And Julie's house to hang out with some of the dog friends he had made. They are really great they truly care for dogs. I trust my dog and I would trust anyone's dog with them. If you're lucky enough to get them don't hesitate to let them keep your dog. Thank you so much Julie and Patrick!!!
The did an excellent job. Treated my dog like it was their own. He enjoys running and playing with other dogs. They took him to the dog park everyday. 5 star.
Julie and Patrick were awesome with our Mr. Emmett. We will definitely use them again in the future.
We are so glad we found Julie and Patrick to take care of Baibai while we were in Houston. Their home was easy to find. I understood exactly what was needed for his stay. And they sent pics and notes each day to let us know he was fine and comfortable in his new environment.
We would definitely recommend them and will use them again.
Thank you both for treating Baibai as your own
Julie and Patrick were great. They kept me updated with my doggie's status, even going as far as sending me pictures of the dog in the park. Will definitely be calling them again for my dog's next vacay.
Julie and Patrick did such a great job taking care of Sadie and keeping us updated with notes and pictures. They kept her very entertained! Will definitely use them again!!
Our golden retriever was well taken care of. I appreciated the text updates as well.
Julie and Patrick were wonderful with my 3 miniature doxens. I was really nervous because the pups have never been with anyone but relatives and are just so attached to me, but Julie and Patrick put my mind at ease! The girls were comfortable and happy with them! I even got daily updates to see what they were up to. I'm so glad I came across Julie and Patrick and now when I'm away I'll have peace of mind that my girls are with people who give them infinite love and kisses! Highly recommend Julie and Patrick, they really went the extra mile with my babies and made them feel right at home!
I was very happy with Julie and Patrick when they watched my dog, Katie. I was nervous to leave her anywhere because she is an older dog with some anxiety, but she was in the best hands with Julie and Patrick! They were great with her, very patient and understanding. I also got updates about her stay which gave me a lot of peace of mind. Would definitely come back to Julie and Patrick!
I am that paranoid human who thinks I’m the only person who could take care of my dog the way God intended, hahaha. Julie and Patrick were awesome and very patient with me. They took the time to learn about my dog and made the whole process painless and worry-free.
I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND JULIE & PATRICK. It was very hard for me to leave Paulo, for the first time in his whole life, in the care of “strangers.” However, Julie and Patrick made this experience so amenable and relaxed. Their updates kept my mind at peace. Paulo is a senior dog with an unerring judgment of humans. He loved Julie and Patrick, and that is enough for me to love them, too!
We had an excellent experience with Julie & Patrick keeping our dog. They provided us with updates & pictures which made our entire family happy to see our dog well cared for during his stay. I would definitely recommend Julie & Patrick for pet sitters & we will definitely be contacting them again in the future when we leave town.
Spoiled -- Patrick & Julie catered to Rosie's every whim -- she even got to share coveted bed space with them!
Ubiquitous -- Patrick's texts with updates about Rosie were frequent and popped up everywhere we went.
Play -- Rosie had lots of play time at the dog park and tug-of-war matches.
Easy -- Very easy to get Rosie & stuff to P&J.
Relaxed -- My husband and I had a relaxed vacation because we knew that Rosie was in excellent hands!
Julie was great with our buddy. He had a lot of fun. Thanks.
Julie and Patrick did a fantastic job with our two labs! They took them to play at the dog park and took very good care of them. We are planning on booking with them again next week!
I'm not sure there are enough words in the English language to explain how wonderful Patrick and Julie are. If you want your dogs to be loved, walked and played with, call them immediately. I was actually afraid our dogs would revolt when we returned and demand for them to come back.
Julie and Patrick are lovely. Julie is now Aunt Julie for my young Yorkie mix Yahtzee. She had a blast on her visit, and felt comfortable in her new home away from home. Enough to sleep like a turned over turtle! Yahtzee can't wait for her next visit, and I... am thankful to find a caring, kind sitter to take care of my bubbie when I need to travel.
Best choice we have made thank you very much we appreciated to taking care of our dog
Julie and Patrick were wonderful!! Mikey was a new puppy (9 weeks) and they took amazing care of him!!!! They sent updates which was awesome along with a photo. It was nice to know our little pup was in such good hands.
Our sweet girl had a fabulous time with Julie and Patrick! She was so happy, healthy, and obviously very well loved & taken care of! It helped so much that they updated us with daily pictures and stories of their adventures! We had never left her with anyone but family...Julie and Patrick now feel like family, they rock!!!!!
