About Jules

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am 74, retired, divorced, and for the first time in nearly 40 years, dog less.
I recently lost my 2, 50lb. babies. One to an inoperable brain tumor(10). The other to old age at 17 and a half. Not quite ready to hit the dog-pound, still grieving. Saw the ad in the AARP magazine and thought "this might be great".
Except for 3 days a week at the y, I am pretty much ready to cuddle and or play. (About 3 hr. workout).
Usually up by 9, down by 1. Sleep upstairs.
Benton park is 2 blocks away. Yard can be divided into cement run, grass and bushes, or both. Yard is completely enclosed, with a garage in back and a locked and chained gate in front. Motion lights all around. I prefer 1 puppy at a time but if you have two that have been raised together, that would be fine.
Please use g-mail or optional land line 776-0771.

Jules was great. Our dog tends to be nervous, but it seems like she had a great time. He sent updates and pictures, which was much appreciated.
After reading endless reviews and profiles, my boyfriend and I finally settled on Jules as the host for our dog, Jenkins. We could not have chosen a better person to be with our boy during his week stay. Jules sent us daily updates with pictures and videos, which we looked forward to each day. It put our minds at ease knowing he was with someone we trusted. Jules definitely went above and beyond, providing the best possible care. He was quite thorough to ensure smooth transition of care while we were away. He is very responsive with communication and will accommodate individual needs. While there are plenty of exceptional hosts in the St. Louis area, I highly recommend Jules!

Jules was awesome. Daily updates and pictures of my dog and completely spoiled her.
Jules is fantastic!
I will start with WONDERFUL, AWSOME . Jules is the best! Athena is a bit of an odd dog. A German Shepard with some quirks. 2 years old and still a high energy dog.

I was so worried. He emailed everyday with pics. I felt I left her with family. Not a thought or worry. Athena loved him!

He is so easy spirited and fun in general. I would recommend Jules to anyone.

Nice home and yard. Lots of space for a large dog.

My only worry now is can I book with him the next time I take a trip! He spoiled us totally!

Huge thank you to Jules! You are the best Jules!

Jules was often in touch leading up to Sunny's vaycay. He sent daily fun photo updates and gave her lots of treats, which we're happy about :) He has a great yard, which we were really happy about since we don't have one at home, and we can tell our dog had a great time.

Jules sends pics every day or so and you can tell he really loves having the dogs and treats them like his own. Used him twice and will continue too
Jules is an awesome pet sitter!. I tried other sitter before but it did not work because my dog did not want to go inside her house at all. She was kind enough to recommend me Jules.

Jules has a way with dogs and he warmed up to him quickly. He keep me informed everyday about my doggy, Vicktor and also sent me pictures of him.

Whenever I have to leave town, from now on I won't hesitate in contacting Jules again. Vicktor my dog, loves him!

This is the first time I used dogvacay. I tried to use another pet sitter but my dog did not even wanted to go inside her place. Jules has a way with dogs. Vicktor, my doggy, although a little bit reluctant to be in a new place at first, warmed up quickly with Jules. While I was away, he sent me updates of Vicktor every day as well as pictures which I really appreciated. If I ever need a sitter again, I won't hesitate to contact him again.

Jules was great. Kenji felt right at home and we felt comfortable leaving him. At the interview day before the actual vacation Jules took time to show us around the house and the backyard so we could feel comfortable with everything. Kenji is our only baby and we wanted to make sure he was in good hands. Kenji is already begging to go back because he gets a lot more treats when he stayed there then he does at the house :) He can't wait to go back in a few weeks.

Jules is a loving dog caretaker. He really loves dogs and wants them to be happy! I felt at ease leaving my dog with him.
Jules was great to work with! Flexible with the schedule, kept us updated with pictures and friendly notes. We didn't have to worry because we knew our Aussie was in good hands. Will definitely be using him again in the future.
Jules obviously cares about people and animals and has a very kind soul. He showed me his lovely back yard and home and I knew Atlas would be very comfortable and in good hands. It was nice to get away knowing that Atlas would not be lonely or intimidated by other dogs as he is a big lazy baby!
I'm so happy to meet him and find your service!

Jules was great with our energetic boy Charlie! He sent us pictures of them playing daily and Charlie came home happy and worn out! I would definitely recommend a dog vacay with Jules!
I have 2 boxers that stayed with Jules. He was awesome with the boys. I think they may have wanted to stay longer. Each day he sent photos of my boys to show how they were doing. I will definitely use him again.
.I have become one of those tired parents who gets through the day dong chores and trying to find enough time to show the dog a little affection. Jules, is the grandpa who offers a parent respite and the dog a fun filled vacation.
My dog Savannah is getting older and has a difficult time in kennels now. Thankfully we have found Jules! He was so good with her, spending lots of quality time doing fun things. He sent lots of pictures which made me feel like she was happy and doing well without me. Such a relief! I highly recommend Jules to anyone looking for a kennel alternative!

Jules was awesome. You can tell immediately he is a true dog lover. He is able to provide round the clock care, love and individual attention which was great for Gumbo because I am home with him every day and he can be somewhat nervous in new environments. Jules was great and I already have another reservation set up for a future stay.

Jules is fantastic! I couldn't have asked for a better sitter. Your dog will receive ultimate love and attention. Jules kept my nerves at ease by sending daily photos and videos of my baby. He even trained her to walk up the steps in just a few days! Something I thought my baby just couldn't do. I highly recommend Jules, your dog will be in great hands.

Jules was outstanding. He was so helpful in arranging a drop off that worked for me and my boyfriend and was very patient when we forgot things- like her leash! Jules made it work regardless, sent me constant updates with photos and videos (Very reassuring when the floods happened), and I would use him again in a heartbeat. I think my dog was in Jules withdrawal for a few days because he spoiled her so! Loved him!

Jules took *stellar* care of our 6-year old dog Pippi while we were away. He has the heart and the know-how to put even an anxious dog like mine at ease: settling her in, entertaining, cuddling, and exercising/walking her. He administered my dog's medication and even made some really astute suggestions for managing and improving her condition (nervous licking).
I was not expecting to find my dog in BETTER shape than when I dropped her off, but thanks to Jules she is in great form. Thank you Jules!

Jules is the man! Our dog loved his stay with Jules. We got photos and emails several times a day. Jules went above and beyond to make our dog comfortable, and we would use him again in a heartbeat. We can't recommend him enough!
Jules is the best! He took excellent care of Pudge and really went above and beyond for him. Pudge loves Jules and I have no concerns about booking in the future as I know he will get loving care and will have lots of fun!
Jules was amazing! I was worried to put my dog in a kennel because she is a rescue dog and not very social with others. I booked Jules for Thanksgiving but right before Thanksgiving I had a death in the family. Not only did Jules allow me to extend the vacay he sent me pictures of Foxy daily. It was so nice that while I was grieving with my family I didn't have to worry about the safety of my baby! I would recommend Jules to anyone. I couldn't have asked for a better sitter.

Jules was very accommodating with my last minute request for for my 2 dogs. I had trouble finding a sitter who met all my requirements because my dogs are both pittbulls who don't always like other dogs and one of them is difficult on a leash. Jules place was perfect for them since he doesn't have any pets of his own and has a nice fenced-in back and front yard to prevent them from running off. He also went the extra step and sent me email updates with pictures every day along with speaking to me on the phone. When I went to pick them up he had all their stuff ready and even helped me load my car. I have no doubt my dogs were in good hands and got lots of love during their dog vacay!

My dog is crazy and Jules did an awesome job. She was happy! He sent pictures and stayed in touch during the stay. She was the only dog there, which is important because she has doggie issues. He has a great yard and his home is set up perfectly for pups. There is plenty of room to play and he was able to book with me at the LAST minute. I am so happy and so is Coco! Next time I need a sitter, I will absolutely go back to Jules!

This was my first experience using DogVacay and I couldn't be more pleased with Jules as my fur-son sitter! Tank is a big boy and can be a lot to handle, but Uncle Jules was the perfect guy for the job. Each day I received an emailed update complete with photos of all the fun they had! Tank loved playing fetch, snuggling on the couch, and even eating Uncle Jules' slippers (sorry again about that!)

In addition to being a great dog-sitter, Jules was awesome about taking my last minute reservation and even accommodated a quick meet & greet the evening before drop off.

If you are looking for an caring and fun sitter for your furry family, Jules is your guy!
