About Julia

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Julia and I live in a hardwood two bedroom apt in Lakeview with my husband, 13 lb dog Milton and my 2 year old human Daughter.
Milton is a super cute terrier mix. He always gets along with all dogs, especially if they are his size or a bit bigger.
My human baby has learned to be gentle with dogs and she loves them, so your dog has to be comfortable around children (of course they'll be closely supervised)
Your dog will never get bored in this area, very safe and full of big trees to sniff and squirrels to try to chase. We have one dog park fairly close, so I guarantee lots of playtime, exercise and attention.
I volunteer regularly at Paws Chicago, helping homeless dogs to get a home, so I'm used to handle all type of dogs and I love it! However, I can only take small and medium dogs because of building policies.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns

Julia did a fabulous job taking care of our rat terrier, Idaho, while we were out of the country for 10 days. She kept us updated with photos of Idaho and texts about how things were going, so we could see how much fun he was having. Her own dog, Milton, is an easy going guy, and her husband and young daughter were also great with Idaho. Idaho clearly had a great time with them. We hope to have Idaho stay with Julia again the next time we have to be out of town!
Julia was a great Dogsitter for our 11 year old Boston Terrier! She was very accommodating for a request at the last minute and sent us photos and updates daily. Our dog was very comfortable in her place and I can tell Julia takes good care and has a passion for animals. Will definitely book her again in the future.
Julia is always quick & responsive when making reservations. And Loki loves his time there. We are always updated during our trips with pictures showing how much fun he's having.
Julia was amazing! My dog had a great time at day care with Milton! Julia gave a detailed description of behaviors that she observed throughout the day and really let my dog have full reign of her condo ! When I picked my dog up he was so excited and energetic! When I brought him home he was totally worn out from all the fun he had! We'll definitely be back!
Julia was great with our dog over Christmas and New Years! He returned happy and healthy, and we got lots of pictures of him while we were away.
Julia was awesome! She sent me pictures of my dog (Elsie) throughout the day which I really appreciated! Took Elsie to a dog park, on walks and played with her throughout the day. Her dog Milton was so sweet was playing with Elsie when I picked her up at the end of the day. Elsie didn't want to leave! You can tell Julia loves dogs and I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Julia was an excellent host for my dog Steve! She volunteers at PAWS and is very educated and experienced with all sorts of dog personalities! She kept me updated with pictures everyday! I would use her again in a heartbeat!
Julia was great with Rocco. she was so flexible and accommodating. I would highly recommend her. And her dog Milton is very cute too!!
After meeting Julia & Milton, I felt very comfortable leaving Presley with her family for the weekend. She kept me posted with pictures and text messages, I could tell Presley was thoroughly enjoying his stay! It is obvious Julia & her husband truly love dogs and enjoying taking care of them. I will definitely book Julia with DogVacay again, and recommend her to anyone else seeking a trustworthy, caring stay for their pup!
Liam had a great weekend and barely wanted to leave!
Julia was a wonderful host! Great communication and my dog was truly happy with staying at their home. Julia and her husband love dogs and I would have no doubts on my dog visiting with them again,
Julia was fantastic and Franklin enjoyed his stay with her and her dog. He had a blast and seemed very happy when I picked him up. I plan to use her again!!
Julia was amazing! I was kind of in a pickle and needed a last minute reservation (24 hour notice) for my dog Cooper. After messaging several people, Julia was very quick to respond - within a few hours. We did a quick meet and greet the next morning for our dogs to get to know each other and later that afternoon I dropped Cooper off at her condo. She is around all types of dogs on a daily basis as a volunteer at PAWS, which is great because she knows when something is just a normal dog thing, or if she needs to check with you. She sent me pictures of Cooper everyday and kept me updated via text. Her dog Milton got along great with my dog Cooper, and I'm sure they will be best buds! Would definitely use her again in the future.
