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!

Great hosts. King had a great time.
I have used Julia's services several times and the dogs always seem happy and well fed when I pick them up!
Loved my experience with Julia. She took great care of Jasper. I've already booked her again in a few weeks.
Julia was great and Jax had a blast with all the pups in her home. Easy to communicate with.
Very nice and welcoming
Julia did an absolutely fabulous job watching Terra for me! Terra loves playing with her pups and is always happy and tired at the end of the day. Highly recommended DogVacay host!
I have had great experiences with julia. She is now the first person I contact when Im in need of a sitter. She's knowledgeable about dogs and caring, very accommodating, drop off and pick up is always quick and easy and my dog always comes home tired. She has a couple dogs in the home, and sometimes others she's sitting for, but it hasn't taken away from the care and attention my dog receives and my dog seems to love the company of other 4 legged friends.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her!!
She took good care of my dog, and he has a fenced-in yard where my dog can run around.
Julia was fantastic! Bella spent a week with her over the holidays. Julia definitely gave Bella plenty of exercise (Bella napped almost all day when she came home). Coordination was easy and Julia was very nice!
Julia was great with Duke. She made sure he had everything he needed!
Julia was amazing! She took my dog with other dogs, and he ran around all day long. It was a huge play date! He had the best time, and went to sleep as soon as we got home. He had so much fun running all day. Julia took really good care of my dog, and all the dogs. She's very calm, and she handles them really well. All the dogs have a great time, and I love that mine came home exhausted. I appreciate the day so much, I hope she will take him again.
Julia has a large yard that can accommodate any size dog. She was flexible and made it possible to pick up our dog at the desired time, despite having to deal with an unforeseen emergency of her own. She does a good job communicating via phone, text and app. The fact that she was able to book us last minute was hugely convenient.
Everything was great! Julia was very convenient and helpful in a tight situation and little Huey had a blast!
