About Julie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are located in Northwest London (Oakridge)

**Does your dog need some socialization or canine play time? Half-day daycare is available. $15 for up to 5 hours. Please click 'Ask Host A Question' and state you want to book half a day.** Also, please note the calendar only reflects boarding reservations and not dogs that are visiting for daycare. On many days there is at least one dog visiting for daycare, plus our own dog.

~Animal lover for life, but dogs have a special place in my heart. Our entire family is experienced with all types and sizes of dogs. Our resident dog loves to play with others and would love a buddy to play with in our backyard. Animals are treated like family in this house and there is no shortage of love and cuddles to go around.

There is almost always someone home so pets are rarely, if ever, left alone. Even when the weather is poor we will make sure the dogs get some exercise. The dogs will have several outdoor play opportunities each day. Dogs are not crated overnight unless it is the owner's request. Most sleep on their own dog beds on the floor in the bedroom. We do have a resident cat so dogs MUST be cat friendly.

*A meet and greet is not required for daycare but is for new dogs that will be boarding overnight. If your dog has been aggressive towards other dogs, cats or people we are not able to accommodate him or her unfortunately.

**Boarding Rate: $30 is for 24-hour period. This also includes playtime, feeding, special instructions from the Guest, and plenty of cuddles! Should the Guest's stay exceed the 24-hour period, your Host may charge an additional fee through a Custom Quote.** For example, a Friday morning drop off with two overnight stays with a Sunday evening pick-up would be $83.

Luna was well cared for and came home exhausted from an afternoon full of play. Julie is a great host and I would highly recommend her!
First time using this dog vacay service and we are quite happy!
We solely picked Coopers Haven based on the number of positive reviews, and were comfortable dropping benson off for the first time!
We would happily recommend and would love to have Benson return another time :)
I have been bringing my puppy to Julie's for a couple of months. Each visit, Julie will give a full update on Winston's day, how he ate/played etc. She usually sends some cute photos throughout the day as well. Julie and Rob seem truly passionate about caring for dogs and make all dogs feel at home while they are there. Winston has such a fun time playing with other dogs and running laps in the backyard, he is always so excited to go back. Leaving Winston at Julie's gives me so much peace of mind while I am at work. I don't know what I would do without them! I would highly recommend this daycare to anyone looking for a safe, fun, caring & dog friendly environment for their pups!
Charlie had a great day! Thanks
Wonderful stay for our puppy. She is going back next week. What a welcoming environment for your dog.
Julie and Rob are great. My dog is very nervous and they did their best to make her feel comfortable. I highly recommend them.
This was Stella's first time at Julie's and I felt very reassured. She sent pics and kept me up to date on how Stella was doing! I have already referred her to others!
I would highly recommend Julie to anyone looking for a warm, friendly atmosphere for their puppy!
Julie is very patient with Suzie, who is very nervous and has separation anxiety. I hope in time she will adjust and look forward to going to see Julie. Our other dog Joey is more adaptable and did well at Julie and Rob's.
It was an overall good experience. This was the first time our dogs had been with a stranger and I believe Julie handled my dogs nervousness very well. We will definitely recommend Julie.
Tilley had an amazing time staying with Julie and Rob. They were warm, accommodating and caring.
We felt totally comfortable and confident leaving her knowing that Tilley was in their excellent, capable care. Their dog Cooper is very friendly and a superb host! We will definitely be back. Thanks so much.
Julie and Rob are phenominal at what they do! They are confident with dogs and clearly passionate about taking care of every creature that comes into their house. Ollie had so much fun that he didn't want to leave!
I am so relieved I found Julie! My dog Karl loves staying here! I always hated leaving him at a kennel because he's a very pampered pup who enjoys luxury. He also has many irrational fears and suffers from allergies for which he is often on various kinds of medication. Julie and her husband have always been incredibly gracious in accommodating all of Karl's weird behaviours and complicated medications. I know he feels safe here (which is saying a lot because he's scared of everything!) and he makes new friends every time he stays. He's always excited when he arrives and when we pick him up, he's never stressed - which was always the case with the kennel - instead, he's blissfully tired! We always get a detailed account of his time at Julie's when we pick him up and it's clear that she pays very close attention to all her guests! I really couldn't be happier with the care Karl gets here and I finally don't worry about him when we go out of town. This is absolutely the best place to send your furry friend!
Lola had a great time with Julie, and It was great to get a picture to see that she was doing fine and having a good time.
Our first time using this service and so glad that we found them! We will definitely be repeat customers.
Julie was so supportive as we were leaving our puppy at day care for the first time. She really got to know our pup before the day. Our pup came home exhausted and made best friends with her dog Cooper. We are so happy to have found happy home care!
We have been absolutely thrilled with the care that Julie and Rob have provided for our two furbabies, Cassidy and Dennis. Receiving the regular pictures with updates is always reassuring, and we are 100% comfortable with the attention and care Cass and Dennis receive while in Julie and Rob's care. In particular, Dennis requires "special" care because he is a rescue dog with anxiety issues, but they did not hesitate to take him in and provide him with a comfortable home away from home.

We would not hesitate to recommend Julie and Rob for your dog's "vacay".

When we have to leave our fur babies, we know that they are happy and very loved with Julie and her family. We get updates and pictures which makes being away from them much easier. Both Sophie and Theo arrive at Julie's front door with tails wagging.
Both dogs love going to Julie's! I love receiving the picture updates during the day, it makes us dog parents feel more at ease knowing they're in such great hands:)
We were so thrilled with Cassidy and Dennis' stay with Julie and Rob. They were very caring and kind with both of our dogs, and were mindful and tolerant of Dennis' special needs as a former puppy mill rescue. Pictures and updates were sent to us every day so we never had to worry. We wouldn't hesitate to book with Julie and Rob again!
This was Wendel's second time staying with Julie. The first time he spent a weekend, while this vacay was for 8 nights. I can't say enough about how wonderful Julie and her husband are. From the moment we came in to drop Wendel off I was impressed with their kindness and sincerity. I felt completely safe leaving the country for a vacation knowing that my fur baby would be well cared for. Julie always answered my texts right away and even sent me pictures throughout the week so I could actually see Wendel. This was so appreciated. When I picked Wendel up he looked great, and he was happy and well adjusted. I would not hesitate to book another dog vacay for Wendel with Julie again and I have also recommended her to my friends. Thanks for another great experience!

This was my first time leaving my 10 month old Havanese puppy overnight in someone's care ...and I have to say this was such a positive experience for Murphy and me! Rob and Julie were so friendly and accommodating and made Murphy and me feel very welcome in their beautiful home. And they were so patient with his 'puppy' antics :). This was a great way to socialize him with other dogs as he hasn't been around many. He was a bit timid at our meet 'n greet around the other dogs but then after just one night staying at their place he was right in there playing and having fun with the rest of them. He would have been quite content to stay longer! It's great that they have a fenced in yard and go for walks too...and the dogs are closely supervised the whole time. I really appreciated the updates from Julie while we were away. We will definitely go back! It was a comfort and peace of mind leaving him in such a caring home. Thanks so much Rob and Julie ... and DogVacay!!
Instead of leaving our fur babies - Theo and Sophie - in a kennel when we travel, we discovered a wonderful alternative with Julie and Rob. We had never done this before so we tried a play date to see how it would go. Leaving Theo and Sophie with a family, in their home, gave us such peace of mind. We knew that they would not only be taken care of very well, but feel right at home instead of stressed in a full kennel. Julie sent a picture of them 'relaxing' mid-day and we sighed with relief. We finally found their home away from home. Thank you Julie and Rob!
As always Julie does an awesome job looking after our Reggie boy and fitting us in last minute for an extra day we don't have any worries at all when we are away we know Reggies always in good hands with Julie and her family and Reggie gets so excited as soon as we pull up to their house and to me that says it all he loves it there so thanks again Julie for another great stay :)
Julie and her family are fabulous!! It was such a relief to know that we didn't have to worry about our large crazy puppy while we were away! We knew that he was in extremely capable and loving hands. Julie really understands how stressful it is to be away from your pet and does all that she can to make it easier on us puppy parents. Both for long overnight stays and for daycare, we've been so happy with the care that our puppy has received. He always comes home tired and happy. Highly recommended!!
Ollie had a great time with Julie and her family and we had a relaxing time away knowing the Ollie was in good hands. Joanne
Our golden, Charlie, has spent four days a week with Julie and Rob for the past 3 months and it has been the best experience! We feel good knowing that he is being active and mentally stimulated while we are at work. He loves playing with their dog, Cooper, as well as the other day care dogs and comes home exhausted from a day of fun. Julie and Rob are wonderful people that genuinely care for the dogs. They give each dog lots of love, attention and affection. We would absolutely recommend them to others.
Ollie had another great day with Julie and her family.
Julie and Henry took care of our "baby" Fitz the way we do. Having the peace of mind to know that your dog is well cared for and loved, alleviates a lot of anxiety. He had so much fun and was very content from all the play, that he passed out exhausted when we got home. We were so happy to see him content and exhausted lol. Thanks to both Julie and Henry. We look forward to many more visits!
Great care for our senior dog with some special needs. He was very tired from all the play activity or a new situation and slept for 2 days. A nice break for his owners.
Julie and Rob are amazing
The understanding and care and concern for the animals in their care is amazing
This was the first time our fur baby was away from his home overnight and for a few days
Max was taken very good care of considering he was shy and nervous
We would not hesitate to recommend this host family for a special family member

Thank you again
The Smith family
We have a new Rescue dog that has loved her stays with Julie and her family. Her home kanal warm and welcoming. I am sure our dog feels like she had gone to a dog resort complete with fiends, treats and love. Thanks to your whole family for making this such a positive experience for us and Lizzie!!
Once again Ollie had a fabulous time with Julie and her family. We can relax and enjoy our vacation knowing that Ollie is being so well cared for. Julie's photo updates show Ollie meeting new friends, playing outside and getting lots of snuggles. Julie and her family are totally pawsome hosts.
Max enjoyed his first stay. It is often difficult to leave a fur baby with others but Julie and family made Max and us comfortable.
Julie's knowledge and understanding of dogs is comforting and we know he is in good hands
Max is looking forward to another visit

Thanks again
Julie was great! Yorick had a wonderful time and came back nice and sleepy. We were away 2 days and Julie sent us pictures and updates each day. Yorick got to meet a cat, which he loved. Julie has a wonderful home and I'm glad she let Yorick share it for a weekend. We will definitely be back.
All pet owners have some apprehension when leaving their pets with someone new. My apprehension was doubled as I have 2 big dogs, one old man and his younger step-brother.
From the moment I met Julie and Rob all the apprehensiveness dissipated!
This even after my two boys felt the need to share their bodily fluids with Julie's rug and couch....arrrgggghh! I received pics and updates everyday and my boys looked so happy and content. Being away from boys is tough for sure, but with people like Julie and Rob, they made it so much easier. I had complete confidence my boys were receiving amazing care and I was so happy for that (not quite as happy as them when I came to the
I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone who wants a warm, friendly and caring environment for their pets whether for just the day or an extended period of time.Thank you Julie and Rob - you rock!
We just love love love loved this service, and Piper came home happy and sleepy after her night away and play today!

Julie and her family were warm and welcoming, we felt confident leaving Piper at their home - and the messages and pictures only reaffirmed our initial feelings! Upon picking her up, we had a chat about her stay, and I felt even more positive about it, which I didn't think was possible! We had a great experience, and I can not WAIT to recommend Cooper's Haven to everyone and anyone who is looking for the perfect place to bring their favourite family member when they go away!
Julie warmly welcomed us into her home. Stanley enjoyed his day at Julie's and found the backyard full of interesting scents, just what a beagle likes. Stanley looks forward to his next visit!
Julie and Rob were very pleasant and welcoming.

They have a very large house and the dogs have pretty much the run of the place. (Within Reason)

Our dog Roxy was actually pulling at the leash to go in to their house.

They have a shallow wading pool for the dogs to cool off in warmer weather.

Our dog has special needs and Julie was very concientious. She assured us that the dogs would have care 24 hrs a day.

There were 3 other dogs and one smaller housecat in the house. Julie has a dog and the cat. I would discuss the cat, if your dog has feline issues.
Julie was very forthcoming with information regarding the other tenants in the house.

Julie sent us a pic of Roxy in her bed. It is always nice to get information on your pet when you are away and we were over-all extremely pleased with the entire experience. We have already discussed with Julie, the option of boarding Roxy there again!
Ollie had another great day at Julie's. We appreciate the great care and play time that Julie and her family provide. Joanne
Our dog Eddie loves going to Julie and Rob's home! He just spent a full day there and was treated like a family member by them. Their home is dog friendly with lots of toys and a spacious back yard. Our pup Eddie experienced no separation anxiety and he was entertained by their own dog Cooper who is a great playmate. Julie and Rob love animals and it shows. Eddie will be staying a full week at their home while we travel and we feel so relieved to have found them.
Julie and her family were fantastic Reggie had a
Great time playing with Cooper I felt very comfortable leaving Reggie with Julie and loved that she sent me a pic to show me how Reggie was doing I would highly recommend her 5 stars for sure Thanks Julie and Family
My dog Wendel would like to give a review of the vacation he recently had at Julie's house along with Cooper (the cute Springer Spaniel) and fellow guest Kaiser. Wendel said he felt very comfortable from the moment he walked into Julie's house. She was warm, kind and made Wendel and me (his mom) feel very at ease. Julie took the time to reassure him that everything was going to be ok, she let him sniff out the surroundings and as soon as my car pulled out of the laneway she brought Wendel outside to play. Wendel also said he loved getting his picture taken a bunch of times by Julie, which he noticed she sent to me...Wendel knew this would make me feel better because I tend to be a real mother hen with him!! Wendel wants to stay at Julie's house the next time I go away. He even got to snuggle on Julie's husband's lap on the couch and with Julie on the bed with Cooper. What a great little doggie vacay!!!
Kyzer had a great visit with Julie and her family! He was very tired when he got home. Julie is very flexible with drop off and pick up times, she also tries her best to follow the same rules you have at home. Julie is able to adapt to different personalities in dogs. Kyzer and I look forward to future visits:).
Julie and her family are fantastic hosts. Ollle had a great time with Julie and we were kept up to date with great pictures. I would with out hesitation recommend Julie. Ollie will be staying with Julie whenever we go away. Joanne
Wonderful and accommodating. Kind and loving. My dog had a great stay and looks to be exhausted from a good time playing with new friends.
