About Dan & Julia

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your four legged kids will get to play freely in our large fenced in backyard! My husband Dan & I are at home all day long so your pup will get 24/7 care & love! We also have 2 crates (small & medium sized) as well as a baby gate if your pets needs these items. We live in downtown Evanston so we have lots of places we can walk to as well including Northwestern next door as well as the beach! My husband & I love all kinds of dogs as do our two pups Leila & Ziggy. My husband worked full time at a large shelter so he has experience working professionally with all types of breeds. Your loved one will get tons of hugs, cuddles, & love while they stay with us. We don't have furniture restrictions & our pups love to cuddle in bed with us. We have a one year old who absolutely loves dogs & thinks barking is hysterical. We do have a car so if an emergency occurs we will be able to transport your pup wherever he or she needs to go. With personal as well as professional experience we are able to tell pretty quickly if something is off with your pup & we would notify you asap!

Julia is very nurturing and kind and is a great dog mom to her two pups Leila and Ziggy, She is very responsible and flexible and anyone would be lucky to have her as their dog sitter!

I've known Julia for several years, and there is no one else I trust to watch my fur baby. I know that when I leave, Julia's there providing the same love and attention I do, and I love getting texts from her because it's a picture of Pebbles having the time of her life. Julia's in Evanston now, and I just haven't found anyone else who I know, without a shadow of a doubt, will love her like I do, so I've been staying closer to home! Maybe some day someone will live up to the standard that Julia set, but that day hasn't come for me just yet. She's caring, she's trustworthy, and I'm a little jealous that y'all get to have her and I don't!

I'm sorry to say this, but our experience with Dan & Julia couldn't have been worse. When we arrived to drop him off five dogs came rushing toward us. I thought we were supposed to be notified if other pets were being boarded. The apartment was far from neat and tidy like the pictures, it was a disaster zone. I specifically requested she keep in touch and send pics of Coco; we got one the first night then never heard from her again until she asked when we were coming to pick up our lab. Most astonishing, when our family went to the door to pick up Coco, Dan opened the door and had us wait outside in the cold while he handed us all of our items one by one. We had brought a small token of appreciation gift, but honestly they did not earn our trust. Will never call on them again. This was only our second time using DogVacay- the first couple were phenomenal but weren't available. With Dan & Julia it honestly felt like they were running a raggedy boarding motel just for the money, not for their love of pups. Just our observation. Nothing personal, both nice people. Thank you.

They are very responsive and the dogs always seem happy when I pick them up!
My dog boarded with Dan and Julia over a weekend. They were accommodating with dropoff/pickup and she came home happy and healthy. Would definitely recommend.
