About Julie

19 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Have your furrchild child over for a doggie sleepover! I am certified by the American Red Cross in Pet First Aid. I love dogs and the doggie sleepovers I have hosted over the years! I know how it feels when leaving your furrchild and am sensitive to those feelings and treat my doggie sleepover guests as I would want my furrbaby to be treated with lots of love, attention, care and that he/she is safe while you are gone. Your doggie will have lots of playtime and relaxing time with my furrbabies! Your doggie will get walked, nap time, playtime and personalized attention as I prefer to have one client's doggies at a time over for sleepovers but do take multiple doggies often to accommodate my pet parents whenever needed. I send updates with photos by email and send text messages several times per day or can call you with updates if preferred so you know how your furrchild is doing while away. I have 19 years of doggie sleepovers experience. Rest easy knowing your doggie will be loved and cared for while you are away!

New Guests.....I do not take younger large/extra large doggies that are over 35lbs and over 18 inches tall as my doggies are very stressed around large/extra large younger doggies. Thank you for your consideration and understanding!

I have always been a bit concerned because Bailey was once attached by a pit bull and is easily frightened by other dogs. Julie worked to get him adjusted and he did great!! Julie sent me updates and photos every day. It was great to see him playing with the other dogs and having fun.
It is obvious and assuring that Julie enjoys her work.

I left my one year old dachshund, Charlie, with Julie and she was great! I'm always hesitant to leave Charlie because he is very timid around other dogs, but she made sure Charlie felt safe and secure! She sent me many updates and was always quick to respond if I had any questions!! I was very impressed and would highly recommend her Doggie Sleepovers to anyone who is looking for boarding!!

I have two older dogs a Boston and French Bulldog best vocation I have had in a long time, best away from home vocation Poppy and Spanky have ever had! Julie is a 5star resort for dogs Thanks Scott
Julie was awesome with my Smokey! She took very good care of him and always sent me updates. He had a great time :)
Julie has a magic touch with dogs. I truly love her set-up keeping our dog safe and how all the dogs get along with each other. she gives them individual attention and interacts with them. If you need a sitter she is the one. She is A+
This was the first time leaving Mikey overnight, let alone for 3 nights. We visited Julie a week before leaving, so both Mikey and I were comfortable with where he would be staying, Julie and her own dog.

I enjoyed getting updates and photos each day, and will definitely call Julie the next time I have to fly somewhere, and need someone to take care of my Mikey.

Yesterday I searched DogVacay for a sitter located in the opposite direction, so I can spend a weekend at an indoor water park with my grandsons. Hoping to get a confirmation soon. I trust this company and their sitters.

Thanks, Julie, for a great first experience!

Julie did an awesome job prior to Teddi's stay. She was thorough in her questions and obviously cares and loves dogs. During Teddi's stay we got plenty of pictures and updates on how she was doing. Very satisfied with Julie's care!
This was Banjo's first stay with Julie and it seemed to be a very positive experience for her. Julie was very good about sending pictures and daily updates to let us know how and what Banjo was doing. Julie took very good care of Banjo for us and is always eager for our input. We've already scheduled another stay with Julie and would recommend her to anyone considering this type of pet care.

Julie is top notch! She has been watching Winston, our 2 year old Yorkie, since he was a puppy. We travel all over the world and it gives us great peace of mind knowing that he is receiving the best care and attention from Julie while we are away. Winston's best buddy is Major, Julie's dog. They've grown up together and it's fantastic for him to have such a wonderful playmate. Thanks, Julie, for caring for Winsron like he is your own! Debra, Geoff and Winston

Great stay. Julie does a great job.
Julie was FANTASTIC! Before our visit she called and asked all about our dog Buddy to make sure she could properly care for him. During our pup's say she sent lots of updates and photos. Our dog had a great time - would definitely go back. Thanks, Julie!

Julie was great. I received lots of pictures and updates. It was apparent that she is very knowledgeable and loving. It's great to be able to leave town knowing our babies are safe and happy.
Julie was awesome. It was Rocky's first visit, and he was a bit apprehensive, but she made him feel so comfortable. It's a great place for the older doggies! Thanks for you kindness Julie!
Julie was absolutely wonderful - we felt so connected to Jordi our entire trip seeing the all of the pictures we received from Julie. She had a great time playing with both Julie and the other dogs.

Thanks so much - we'll certainly try to book Julie again!!!!!

Julie is awesome, my dogs stay with her quite frequently. They love going to see Julie and get very excited when we pull into her driveway! Julie gives them lots of walks, hugs, attention and snuggles... She takes great care of them!
We had a wonderful experience with Julie. He was so relaxed he fell asleep within the first hour after we dropped him off. She walked him and posted pictures of him on the website and kept us updated throughout his stay. We would definitely use her again and will recommend her to all of our friends.

I was very nervous to have someone outside my immediate family watch my dog. I am very selective with who I choose since my dog Lambeau is only 4 pounds. Julie was very thorough and attentive to detail during the meet and greet and helped put my mind at ease. During my week long vacation, Julie surpassed all my expectations!!! She gave constant updates with how my fur baby was doing along with a ton of pictures!! I was able to relax and now that Lambeau was in good hands. I've already booked another sleepover with her and will definitely keep her as my go to dog sitter. If you book with Julie you will NOT be disappointed!

We went on vacation for 2 weeks and left our dog Holly with Julie. I never worried about her at all, Julie was great with her. She treats Holly like one of her own dogs. I received updates, photos and videos everyday. I am very happy with Julie, she is my go to sitter. Holly loved all the play time with the other dogs too!

We were apprehensive about leaving our Sydney for the first time. Julie put us at ease from the Meet & Greet, through the entire vaca stay. Photos, videos and text messages flowed during our entire vacation. It truly helped to give us peace and enjoy our much needed time away. Sydney seemed to be in love with Julie by the time we returned. He certainly didn't act like we had abandoned him . Upon returning home everything was seamless. No doggy insecurities or hypertension. We highly recommend Julie and Doggy Vaca!!!

Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel had a great time staying with Julie for thirteen days. Julie has a great pet-friendly home and Kinzie snuggled right in! Our dog is 12 years old and needs extra TLC due to hearing loss and arthritis. Julie provided that TLC and shared lots of photos of our dog making herself right at home :) We would highly recommend Julie to others and will certainly use her services again ourselves.

Julie was fantastic with my skipper! This was the first time leaving him for an extended time period and he did so great because of Julie's great care. I loved seeing the updates and pictures she provided during his stay. I would 100% recommend Julie and definitely use her again for the next doggy vacay! Thanks so much Julie!

Chopper was in great hands with Julie! She sent frequent updates and lots of photos. My children loved seeing the pictures and being able to"check in" on him. We are grateful that she opens up her cozy home to our fur baby. We will definitely leave our dog in her care again.

Julie was amazing with Enzo!! He truly was on his our vacation!! With our family of 6 sometime Enzo doesn't always get the attention he needs, this doggy vacy, was the ultimate experience for him!! We enjoyed all the pictures and messages we received from Julie. He was well loved and totally spoiled!! It was a great experience, especially since it was our first time "boarding" a dog with someone other than family! I'm pretty sure he will never forget Julie! We will be using her again for our next vacation. It makes going away from Enzo 100% comfortable! Thank you Julie from the belly rubs to the tweety treat and lots of tlc!

I knew as soon as I walked into Julie's house that things were going to be okay. She put me at ease with her knowledge of dogs and answered my questions before I could ask them. Zoe had a good stay and took to her right away. I could tell everything would be okay when Zoe sat on her feet!
Should the need arise, I will use her again. Thank you, Julie!

Another fantastic sleepover. We love you Julie!!!!
Thank you Julie! This was my first use with dogvacay.com. I was very nervous about leaving my boys for the first time. Julie was amazing! My boys stayed 9 night at Julie's home. She sent me 20 pictures a day. Wonderful experience!
This was our first experience with dog vacay and Julie. She was very patient with us and our fir baby. Our Bella is only a year old and had never been left with a sitter before. Julie was great. She sent us a text message within 15 minutes and sent a picture of Bella on her lap a short while later. I was totally confident that Bella was in good hands and we are looking forward to our vacation in 3 weeks knowing we have an amazing sitter and new friend.

We had to extend our sleepover and there were no problems whatsoever! Julie is fantastic!
We LOVE Julie! There was an emergency with another family pet and she stepped up and took our Scarlett and Bella last minute. She is just so caring, and not only for our fur babies, but us humans as well!
As always I trust Julie with my little Bubba. She is always upbeat and I know she is truely concerned about Bubba having a great time on his Vacay's. She keeps me updated on his day with pics and a summary. Don't know what I would do without her and Major.

As always Julie did a wonderful job with my fur babies! She truly makes you feel at ease and I never worry about my dogs when they are with Julie. I would highly recommend Julie for your vacation needs or even a day visit which I recently did while I was moving across town and didn't want my dogs to stress out with the movers. Hats off to Julie...I am so glad I found her!

Best ever. B.e.s.t.

Julie is awesome as usual. We love her and Major Magoo and so does our little Dachshund Zulu.
We have been using Julie as our dog sitter for about a year now and she is awesome.
Another nice vacation for our Aubie. He loves going to Julie's. It sure makes it easier to leave him knowing how well he gets taken care of.Thanks for all the great communication with texts and pictures. Bev and Pete
Julie did a great job watching our dog while we were on a ten day vacation. It was the first time she watched him and everything went very well. From the initial meet and greet to the eventual stay at Julie's house, we always felt very comfortable. While we were away she sent us numerous text messages and posted many pictures to the dogvacay website so we could see how our dog was doing. We will definitely use Julie again when we need a sitter. Thank you!

Julie was very thorough when we first met to make sure she knew everything she needed to know about my dogs. I appreciated her care and concern. We got many photos and updates during the brief first stay at Julie's and from what I could tell, all three of my dogs had a delightful time. :)

As always, It is apparent that Julie is truly a dog lover. She gives her boarders individual consideration and attention, and focuses on their needs.

Julie is great! We won't go out of town if she isn't available!! We just love and trust her so much!! Thanks for another great sleepover!
Julie is definitely 5 stars. She is so caring- we felt totally comfortable leaving our baby Sadie with her for the first time. She keeps in contact with you every day along with sending pictures so you know how well your furry loved one is being taken care of. Her love for dogs is genuine! She takes notes on how to care for your pet and does everything possible to make your pet feel at home. We will use her again, hands down! Yvonne D.

Julie went out of her way to make sure that my dogs kept their same routines as at home. I have a few high maintenance nervous dogs and she was great with them. She tucked them in each night too! She even went to the store before our trip and bought a calming spray to try with them, which ended up working great. We were also so happy with the daily updates and pics of our three babies while we were gone, we never had to wonder what they were up to and how they were getting along!

Julie is the best!
Julie was amazing! I missed my furrbaby but never worried a bit. Julie sent pictures text messages and followed my instructions to the letter. Vera seemed to really hit it off with her dog, Major. My only wish is that she was closer to my home so that Vera could visit more often and have play dates! Thank you, Julie!!

Excellent! Last minute trip and she was so accommodating! We just love her!!
Another awesome sleepover! Thanks Julie!!!
We were comfortable boarding our previous dog (a lab mix) at a kennel, but our recently adopted miniature dachshund is a lapdog with 24/7 hands-on people interaction. So when we planned several vacations for ourselves, we needed to find a pet-sitter that would be a companion for Zulu during our time away. Julie (along with her own Major Magoo) was the perfect choice.

First, she offered a “meet and greet” to make sure everyone would be comfortable with each other – not only Zulu with Julie and Major Magoo, but us with her handling approach, and to make sure Major Magoo would get along with Zulu. This was her first demonstration of professionalism and knowledge of dog behavior – understanding the interactions between all parties. Knowing we had an extended vacation planned, she also suggested a “get acquainted” session – either a single day or a weekend where they could spend time together (we did a long weekend). This was a great way to “ease” into the process. Julie provided several text updates during the day, letting us know how things were going. When we picked up Zulu on Sunday, she was almost sad to leave her new friends, but happy to see us nonetheless. When we went on an extended vacation, Zulu was excited to be back at Julie’s – we could tell because the pictures and texts Julie posted were of Zulu playing with Magoo or sleeping in her bed without a worry in the world. This put us at ease so we could enjoy our own vacation! But Julie is more than a “pet-sitter”, she knows what she’s doing. For example, when she noticed how Zulu gobbled food, she gave us helpful suggestions/products to solve the problem…and if she noticed a loose item on a toy (that could cause choking), she either fixed it or replaced it with something safe.

Vacations are supposed to be relaxing and now that we’ve found Julie, we know that not only can WE relax, but so can Zulu. We can’t say enough wonderful things about our experience with Julie and would recommend her and Dog VaCay to anyone looking for a pet sitter.

We love Julie! If it wasn't for her, we wouldn't travel. She is the only person we trust with our fur babies!!! Thanks for another wonderful sleepover!!!
Hi Julie,
I think by now you know how very pleased and excited I am that I found you. Thank you so very much for taking such good care of Zulu. I am looking forward to our vacation in Feb, knowing that Zulu will be with you and well taken care of. I would recommend you to others in a heart beat. You are totally awesome in my book.

Thanks
Trey and Donna

Julie is absolutely awesome. We dropped Zulu off this morning and this Doxie momma was a nervous momma.....lol Zulu is 3 yrs old and has never been left at a strangers home before. Julie made us feel so good about leaving her in her home. She texted us about 20 mins after we dropped her off and told us she whined for about 5 secs and then she grabbed a toy to play with her and she was fine. :)This experience will be good for momma and Zulu. I am sure that Julie's Major McGoo and Zulu will be buddies by the time we pick her up on Sunday. I am so glad that I discovered Dog Vacay and Julie.

We can't say enough good things about Julie! She was awesome with our 2 golden retrievers and it was so nice being able to go on vacation and not worry about them. She sent updates 2 times a day and took like 80 pictures of them to show us how they were doing! We have already reserved her time for our spring vacation and would definitely recommend her to others! So nice to know our boys were taken care of like they are at home and given lots of love!

This is the third time we have boarded our dog with Julie. As before, she took exceptional care of him!

Julie emailed us daily updates, as well as photos, so we remained connected to our guy throughout our trip. I was able to tell that he felt very much at home with her and Major.

Julie has once again gone out of her way to accommodate our dog and treat him as if he were her own!! My husband and I have complete trust in Julie. This has allowed us to travel without worry, knowing that our dog will be safe and happy. We highly recommend her!

Julie is amazing! I can't imagine trusting anyone else with my babies!! There is nothing like going on vacation and not having to worry a second about your pets. THANK YOU!!!!!
Julie is amazing! I am so at ease knowing my dogs are being so well cared for! Thank you for all that you do!!!!!
Julie was awesome!! I was a little nervous leaving my fur babies with anyone after a few bad experiences in the past. But Julie completely put me at ease that my girls would be well taken care of. She gave me several updates throughout the day and also sent me several pictures of them going for walks and playing. I would highly recommend Julie for a doggy vacation! I will definitely take my babies back in the future. :-)

I just can't say enough about Julie! We had another amazing experience! It is so nice to be able to go away and completely trust that my dogs are going to be well cared for.

This is the 4th time we have worked with Julie. She is the best! Our dog thinks she is a family member and loves going there. We highly recommend Julie!
Julie was great with the dogs and we will use her again!
Julie did a great job watching our pups. She provided tons of updates/pictures while we were away and kept our minds at ease. We definitely will be going with Julie again in the future!
Rudy had a great time, Julie kept me very informed And took very good care of Rudy!
This is the 3rd time we have left our dog with Julie. Again this was a wonderful experience. Julie sent text messages to let us know how our dog was doing and sent lots of pictures daily.
Julie is awesome! I never worry about my dogs and she is so willing to work with us. I am so glad we found her!!!!!
Julie took great care of my puppy and constantly updated me via texts and pictures of what he was doing. I would highly recommend her.
The visit was great, Rudy seemed very happy and Julie sent me an update with pics while I was gone.
Jock loved his visit at "Aunt Julie's" and seemed right at home! We have no worries while traveling and love her personal text messages and photos! Thank you for allowing us to truly relax on our vacation!
Julie was amazing with our little Pom Cookie! I liked that cookie receive so much one-on-one time with Julie and major. Walks everyday, playtime, snuggles and sleeping on her bed! We received photos everyday, which made it so easy, knowing she's being loved. I feel so blessed to have met Julie and Major, I would use her again next Vacay!

Our dog came back very tired and relaxed all day. He clearly had a lot of play time and it was great coming home from vacation knowing he had fun as well.
Julie provided outstanding care for our dog, Murphy, while we were on an extended vacation out of state. She was exceptionally attentive to his needs. Julie kept us very well informed, as she always sent us pictures of him, as well as text messages/emails. Because of this, we never once worried about our dog. We felt that she treated him like one of her own. Julie is highly knowledgeable and responsible
and we trusted her to provide the best care after having met her during the initial meet and greet. We highly recommend Julie.

We simply cannot say enough about Julie and her Doggie Sleepovers! We have never left our beloved pooch for more than a day and were quite apprehensive about leaving her with someone she had never met before. Julie was so welcoming and understanding. We had a lengthy conversation over the phone followed by a half an hour 'meet and greet' the next week. Julie took such good care of our Molly while we were away. I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Julie kept in constant contact with us by emailing photos and letting us know how Molly was doing. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a doggie sleepover. We will definitely being using her services again! Thank you, Julie!

This was my first time leaving Bubba with someone else besides family. I could not have been more pleased with the special attension Julie gave Bubba, making him the priority even over her own doggy Major. I have a beautiful album I put together of all the pics Julie sent me while I was on my vacation and the updates of each of his days. Julie followed all my notes on feeding, walking and treats.
I could tell Bubba bonded with Julie and I will use her service again. I loved the special spot she made for Bubba with his balnket and bed.
Thank you for having this service!!!

Julie is AMAZING!! We are so pleased with how our doggie sleepover went. You could tell that she was extremely vested in making sure our dogs were properly taken care of. She went above and beyond. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone... even though I hestitate to do that because I want to make sure she is always available for my doggies :).

Julie did a great job taking care of my dog for two consecutive weekends. He got plenty of walks, and I was updated by text and photos throughout his stay. On the second weekend I forgot to being his favorite treats and Julie was nice enough to go and buy them for him.

I'd highly recommend Julie!

This was our second time Julie watched our dog while we were out of town. And again, we are highly satisfied with our experience. Julie was very attentive to our dog. She sent multiple pictures on a daily basis. She really loves dogs and it is evident with the wonderful treatment she gave ours! We hope she will be doing this for a very long time as she is the only one we will trust with our dog while we are out of town.

Julie was great! She sent us updates and pictures throughout our puppy's stay to let us know what he was up to. We had a great first experience with dog vacay and Julie ... We would definitely recommend her and she was able to accommodate Bane last minute !

Julie was amazing!!! I could not have asked for more!!! She texted me daily updates about what she and Brody did for the day. With Brody being a 1-1/2 year old, high-energy black Lab, Julie handled him well. Pictures were emailed so I could see how he is doing. I will definitely use Julie and DogVacay again. Money well spent! Thank you Julie!

We would definitely recommend Julie for your doggie vacation! Felt like we were leaving Max at a home away from home. And we never worried a bit because Julie updated us regularly with text messages & photos.
We were very nervous about leaving our puppy for the first time. We had invested so much time and energy into potty training and working with her. We were afraid that we might have to start all over if we left our dog at a kennel. We are so happy we found Julie. Our experience was wonderful. We met with her before to make sure our dog would feel comfortable at her home. Then after we dropped her off she sent us pictures and messages to let us know how much fun our dog was having.

This helped us and our kids feel much better and not have to worry about her on our trip. This was a much better choice than a kennel or even a family member (that may not have followed our directions about her care).

After we brought our dog home, there has been no back sliding in the training we have done. It is like we were never gone.

We plan to use Julie again for our next trip. It was worth every penny!

Julie was an absolute God send. She was able to take Tiger last minute, she kept me updated daily as to Tiger's day (walks they took, food he ate, his interaction with her dog ...). Julie sent pictures of Tiger spending his day with her pup. She contacted me with any concerns. Julie's love of dogs is very apparent with her interaction with them. I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to use doggie vacay. What a wonderful way to have your pet taken care of while you're gone. Thank you Julie, once again!

Julie was fantastic with our Scottish Terrier, Jock. She willingly kept us informed through text messages and photo updates, which certainly helped eliminate any concerns of how our little guy was handling his temporary "Home away from Home". Jock was so relaxed that when it came time to leave, he was perfectly content to stay with his new friends. This says a lot, considering he is always the first one at the door, when there seems to be a chance to go for a walk or a ride! Clearly, Julie is an animal lover and it showed in her outstanding care of our beasty boy! Thank you Julie for allowing us to relax on our "Vacay" while Jock was on his!

If you are looking for an awesome sitter for your beloved pet, I highly recommend Julie! She went above and beyond and out of her way for my older fur babies, even sending me updates and pictures!!! I will definitely use her again!
My dog, Jade, was in Julie's care for one day. I felt completely comfortable and confident in leaving Jade with Julie. Julie was very accommodating and flexible and appeared very competent in her field. I especially liked that Julie took time to take Jade for walks. I sensed that Julie really loves animals and is very gentle and patient with them.
