About Julia

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! We have recently had the third member of our family leave us to wait for us at the rainbow bridge. It has been difficult and heart wrenching and I think that helping other people feel comfortable in being able to enjoy activities while making sure that their beloved is in a safe environment with someone who will play with them and give them attention is a great way to keep dogs in my life since I'm not ready to adopt again just yet.

Julia was wonderful. Our two beagles seemed to have the best of times at Julia's home (best of times which were captured through numerous photos throughout the day). Julia was communicative and responsive, and flexible with schedule. And she put us right at ease, with how great she was with the dogs upon dropoff. We will certainly book with Julia again.
Julia was great! Rocco made himself at home. Julia sent lots of pictures of Rocco having fun. Thanks Julia for treating Rocco so well so that we could enjoy our trip!
Laya"s' stay with Julia was fantastic. We were confident from the first moment that our pup was left in good hands in a loving and caring home. Thanks so much Julia. You are awesome.
My dog Duffy looked like he had great time. Many pictures sent and he looked very happy and content. He seemed to be having fun. I will take him there again if needed. Julie and family were great highly recommend
Julia was an amazing sitter for our dog Fiona. Over 1 week of vacation, we received over 20 pictures of her enjoying walks or snuggling with Julia. I knew she was in great hands. We will definitely be booking with her again!
Such a wonderful experience. Julia sent multiple pictures while we were away so we knew Ruger was having a good time with her and the other dogs! She tired Ruger out every day and gave him lots of love! Would totally use Julia again in the future, Ruger loves it at her house!
Love, Love, LOVE Julia! She's an amazing sitter. Zara loves her and her husband to death! Zara was tired and happy. Couldn't ask for more. :-)
Love, Love, LOVE Julia! She's an amazing sitter. Zara loves her and her husband to death! Zara came home happy, happy, HAPPY! Thank you so much!
Love, Love, LOVE Julia! She's an amazing sitter. Zara loves her and her husband to death! Zara was all tuckered out when she got home! Truly the best sitter ever!
Love, Love, LOVE Julia! She's an amazing sitter. Zara loves her and her husband to death! Zara comes home completely normal, as though she's never left!
Love, Love, LOVE Julia! She's an amazing sitter. Zara loves her and her husband to death!
My partner and I discovered dogvacay by accident when surfing the web for doggy hotels to board our baby before we left for vacation. After reading how the website works and some of the reviews of customers who have used the service, we decided to check it out a little further and browse through the doggy sitters in our area. Julia's ad stood out because she just had a very kind face. After reading a couple of her reviews, we decided to give her a call to set up a meet and greet. After only a few minutes of talking to her on the phone, my partner and I felt at ease. She had a genuine sweetness to her voice as she explained what to expect. We felt even more at ease when we arrived at her home with Obi. Her outward beauty matched her sweet disposition and her and Obi immediately connected. Once we were gone, Julia exceeded our expectations with the constant photos/videos that she sent to us documenting her and Obi's day to day activities. She took him to the beach and even to places he has never been. Obi is very hyperactive shows slight signs of aggression towards other dogs. Julia was like the dog whisperer and worked with him to help correct his issue with other dogs AND IT WORKED. We have seen significant improvement in his behavior.
Julia is more than a sitter. She is a teacher, nurchurer and leaving your dog with her is like leaving him/her with a family member because she will love your pup as if it were her own. My partner and I will definitely book with her again!
Bailey had a great time! We got lots of pictures every day and he enjoyed all his nice long walks. He will definitely return!
Our dog Ducky was well taken care of while we were out of town. Lots of walks, belly scratches, and playtime. Julia had 2 other dogs staying part of the time Ducky was there and they got along wonderfully! Our dog tries to go past her house when we are on nightly walks (we live really close-added bonus)
Julia was easy to contact and as we are new dog parents, she answered all questions. Will not hesitate to use her again. (Already penciled in a spot for Nov.)
I think my dog had more fun on her vaca than I did on mine. She was playing all day, she met lots of people, and event went to a BBQ. I could tell from the picture updates she really enjoyed herself.
Julia was excellent. I think my dogs totally enjoyed their stay. I would definitely use her again.
It was perfect to work with Julia, she is very friendly, helpful and has a really good bond with the dogs.
Julia is fantastic!!!!! Our boys absolutely loved her! They got more walks with Julia than what I do, I loved all the pictures made me feel more at ease. Already booked with her for another vacay!! Thanks Julia Mindy
Julia was as wonderful a host as I could have asked for. My dog loved her, she kept me posted on him every day, and she was so flexible and easy to work with. We will defintely be using her again!
Julia is wonderful. Nadia had a great experience. We were so nervous and Julia put us at ease. Nadia loved her walks. The pictures and video sent were priceless. We will booking with Julia again.
The overall experience was good. She really showed a genuine concern for dogs. The only thing I would have done differently would have been to ask for a solo visit. In other words, I would have wanted my dog not to be with so many other dogs.
We had been boarding at a vet for years. Then we came across Dog Vacay and Julia. This being our first experience with an opportunity like this, we were unsure, as your dog is part of your family. I took Waldo over to meet Julia & her husband. I came away very much at ease with how I was convinced Waldo would be looked after. She sent us periodic texts and pictures showing what he was up to, putting us completely at ease.They looked after him well. We will take our dog there again. We recommend Dog Vacay and Julia as a great choice for watching your special 4 legged friend.---Mark, South Milwaukee
My dog Remy had an awesome time with Julia over spring break. She takes great care of the dogs and provides them with plenty of exercise. We loved getting the daily pictures letting us know how things were going. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter.
Julia is amazing! We were really nervous to leave our two older dogs with a "stranger" but were immediately put at ease when we met Julia. She and her husband and true dog lovers and treated ours as they would their own. Julia sent multiple pictures and messages throughout the week to let us know how our dogs were doing. It really helped to see them even though we were so far away. I've already passed her name along to a family member who will be using her in the future and I would not hesitate to recommend Julia to anyone else looking for a dog sitter. I know we'll use her again!
Fantastic experience for both me and my Rosco!!! It was so nice to know he was in good hands and having fun playing with friends & going on walks while I was visiting with family over spring break.I really enjoyed the pictures that Julia took and sent daily to keep me posted on all the fun my puppy was having! Great in every way!!!
Julia was awesome. From even before we left on our trip we knew our guy would be in great hands. The photos and videos Julia sent let us know not only was she enjoying her time with Goorin, he was also having a great time with her.
My dog Harley has been fortunate enough to have an over-nighter by Julia in the past. However this time it was a short notice out of town trip, and Julia was willing to accommodate my request. Harley was in good hands and I was kept abreast of his activities via pictures and texts. Can't say enough of how happy I am with the care Julia gives. Would definitely recommend Julia for anyone looking for a reliable host for their pooch.
Julia did a great job with Zara. She sent pictures of Zara regularly with updates of her activities. Zara had a great time. We look forward to using Julia again. :-)
My dog Harley stayed with Julia overnite. He is a rescue and has an anxiety when I leave.
The first pic I received from Julia it appeared Harley was in no hurry to go beyond the front hall. Shortly after I received another message that he had gone for a run, and a pic of him laying on the floor with Julia. That made me relax.
I received regular updates, and pics. Harley had adjusted quite well.
When I picked up Harley he was in no hurry to leave. Julia gave me a synopsis of Harley's stay and I could tell he was well taken care of.
As a side note, Harley once stayed with a friend of mine, and for a couple days after he appeared sheepish and walked around with his head down. I know something had happened but my so called friend said nothing. When Harley got home from Julia he was all relaxed.
I will definitely make future reservations with Julia, and recommend her to anyone looking for a good person that likes and cares for dogs.
Diver was happy and excited when he returned to Julia's house for his second stay. Julia is super friendly and gave Diver tons of exercise (he's a pup) and affection. The text updates with photos were great and clearly showed Diver fitting right in and feeling at home! I highly recommend Julia!
Nellie loved her stay with Julia. We recieved picture updates and felt comfortable that nellie was safe and having fun. We highly recommend!
