About Julie

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**At this time, we are only hosting regulars (dogs who have had meet and greets or booked stays with us in the past). Thanks and we will update our listing when we have room for more new clients.**

Hello! We have been hosts since dog vacay first began, and we have the experience and professionalism you are looking for! We are a dog-loving family and our pets are treated just like family members. We have a large home in the Boston suburbs with a completely fenced-in backyard. Just a short walk to a park with a large open field, and a short drive to beautiful hiking trails. I am a stay at home mom of three young kids, so your dog will always have friends around.

Our daily pet routine includes walks, and depending on weather, fetch in the yard, swimming in our local lake, dog park visits or hiking. All these services are included in our nightly fee. We provide daily email updates and photos so you can "keep in touch" with your pet. We can even accommodate video chats if you'd like to check in with your dog!

Wherever your dog sleeps at home is where he/she will sleep comfortably at our home. We have couches, lounge chairs, kids' beds and pet beds.

The process for you is as painless as possible. We have experience with many breeds, and understand what your particular dog needs. We have toys, healthy treats, water bowls, and food bowls, so you don't have to pack a ton (though we welcome any and all special items you'd like to bring!)

We look forward to giving your pet an amazing vacation so you can enjoy yours!

Please note:
-All school vacations are currently booked for 2016-2017.

-Currently, we are only sitting for house-trained dogs, 2+.

-Meet and Greets are required before any stays are booked (this is for the benefit of both people and dogs! :)

-Because each dog receives such individualized care (based on their schedules and needs), we don't provide discount rates for dogs who are siblings.

Julie and her family took care of Fitz as if he were their own. Fitz and I both feel lucky to have found such good care.
Julie and family were fantastic hosts to Riley our Golden. We knew from the initial meet and greet that were were very lucky to have Riley with them. They were super nice and treated Riley like their own dog. Their house was ideal with great fenced in back yard. They also took him on long walks and were attentive to a minor health issue he had. They sent along periodic photos and updates and we could see he loved playing with their dog Blanco.

We hate leaving Riley, but in this case were so relieved that he was in a happy place and having his own vacation too. Thank you Julie.
Our impression is that Julie is usually, and unquestionably, a 5-star host, but due to the combination of a booking error and unusual pressures and circumstances, things did not work out as planned or expected. We feel that our experience was most likely an anomaly and should not dissuade people from setting up and meet and greet with Julie and beautiful Blanco.
Copper had a wonderful stay with Julie and her family! Thank you for taking such good care of him.

Our dog always has the best possible experience with Julie and her family. Host dog Blanco is the sweetest most welcoming dog and Julie is terrific about keeping us informed with fantastic photos. The flexibility around drop off and pick up is also always appreciated. We love knowing our dog is having as good a vacation as we are (perhaps even better....).

Julie's house is our dog's home away from home. She and her family care for visiting dogs as if they were their own. During our senior lab's most recent visit, Julie and her family noticed a facial bump that was bothering Max. They took him to our vet--some distance from their home--and gave us detailed, daily updates on Max's care and wellbeing. I couldn't trust anyone more to care for our dog when we're away from home!
We love Julie and so does Lola! Thanks for another great doggie vacay!
Julie was absolutely amazing! She was very accommodating right off the bat and asked all the right questions before we even met to help put our minds at ease. It's clear she's done this many times before!

The pictures and notes we got throughout the day were wonderful as well, and really allowed us to relax knowing that Lucy was well taken care of.

Using this service, and specifically Julie, is way better than using a traditional boarding facility where there are always too many dogs and you can never be certain that yours is getting the right kind of treatment and attention.

Any time we need to board Lucy again, we will definitely be in touch with Julie!
Julie and her whole family were great!
Julie was amazing. She is so nice/accommodating and we could tell that she and her family truly cared about our dog. She sent lots of pictures/updates while we were on vacation and it really put our mind at ease knowing that Monty was in good hands. We could tell he had a great DogVacay! I highly recommend her. We'll use her again!
Great stay! We greatly appreciated the photo updates and the flexibility on pick up and drop off times. Would highly recommend!
another great vacation for our dog Sadie. Julie is terrific and takes such great care. Cannot recommend her highly enough.
Julie and her whole family are fantastic. We never worry about Lola when she is in their care as we know she is getting tons of love, affection, and attention. In addition, Julie is flexible and easygoing. On our last trip we were delayed getting back and had to pick up our pup much later than expected. We felt awful but Julie was very understanding. She is simply the best!
I cannot say enough about Julie and her absolutely beautiful family. Smart, kind, warm, loving, sweet and an absolute blessing for any dog lucky enough to ever be in their care. I know my dog is getting all the love and attention he needs. Lucky us is all I can say. 5 stars is not nearly enough!!!
Julie and the Krintzman family are just a wonderful choice! I feel very lucky to have met them. They are a dog-loving family, who makes each dog feel special and part of their family. The correspondence and pictures are priceless and do so much to put the dog owner at ease. My dog had a wonderful time, I felt relaxed and content, and I can't wait to find the next occasion for a super Vacay with Julie and her lovely family!
Another amazing stay with Julie. We love her family so much. They take the most amazing care of Oscar and always send the best pictures of Oscar having a ball. We're moving to New York next month and are thinking about still bringing Oscar up to Boston for long stays because we can't imagine trusting anyone as much as we trust Julie!
Another wonderful stay with the Krintzmans! We can't imagine leaving Oscar with anyone else these days. The best part is the darling photos we get - definitely frame worthy!
Oscar stayed with Julie and her family over the Thanksgiving holiday and 5 stars is not enough to rate the wonderful experience we had. The daily updates and photos were so warm, personal, and full of love. There were countless pictures of Oscar being loved on by Julie, her husband, and her darling children. It was crystal clear that he was immediately absorbed into this wonderful family. Oscar doesn't normally do well outside of his normal routine but he was so happy and comfortable in Julie's home that he actually didn't want to leave when we came to pick him up. I am beyond grateful to have found such a caring place for my pup to vacay!
Julie was an amazing dog sitter for our Bichon Amy! She gave great care to Amy and kept us informed of how well Amy was doing. She sent us updates every day and included photos of Amy, too. I feel blessed to have found Julie and her family to take care of Amy while we were away. Amy is an older dog with specific needs and Julie cared for her like she was her own. Thank you so much!!!

My 10 year old lab (Casey) found a home away from home when he stayed with Julie and her family. He received so much love, care and kindness during his stay that he hesitated to come home with me when I picked him up. Julie sent me photos 3-4 times a day by e-mail so I could visit with my dog. I would look no further than Julie for your dogs stay away from home. Casey will be returning the next time I have travel plans. On a scale of 1-10 , Julie's pet friendly home is a 10 !
This is a second visit with Julie and her family for Sadie. The care and love they give to Sadie cannot be beat. There are daily walks, time to play with delightful and loving children, shade for resting, and an overall welcoming atmosphere in the home. Julie takes the time to send daily photos by email that confirm the dog is having as much fun at Julie's house as I am having on my own vacation! Thanks to Julie and her entire family for taking such great care of Sadie!
We are so thrilled that we found Julie and her family through Dog Vacay. Julie is organized, responsive, and friendly. We felt completely comfortable leaving Lola in her care and we know that everyone had a great time!

Julie made sure that we got plenty of updates, and she also asked us lots of questions about Lola's habits and routine so that our pup would be as comfortable as possible. She was flexible with drop off and pick up times, and it was really obvious that the whole family just loves dogs! I would highly recommend Julie to anyone looking for a sitter!
I can't recommend Julie and her wonderful family highly enough. Our 2 year old Bernese Mountain Dog enjoyed her stay, and, from the pictures Julie sent us, looked to spend equal time running in their back yard and lounging on their couch. We had never before left Peggy overnight with a non-family member, and Julie's enthusiasm for meeting Peggy and communication throughout Peggy's stay helped put us at ease. My wife and I (and Peggy) were all very satisfied. Well done.
Julie and her family are wonderful, fun people who also happen to provide incredibly loving care for dogs needing a home while their owners are away. Our dog was in heaven with all the attention she got from Julie, her husband, her adorable young children, and Wrigley, their lab. Julie was organized and took the time to learn our dog's schedule. Everyone in my family loved the daily updates and wonderful photos as well. At one point my own children worried that our dog wouldn't want to be picked up - she was so comfortable and happy in her new home. We are so thankful to have found Julie and appreciate the service beyond words.
Copper had a wonderful time with Julie and her family! He spent three days with them. Julie sent us photographs each day, so we could see how much fun he was having. We would definitely use Julie again!
Julie and the family are outstanding! Will not hesitant to leave my dog with them again in the future.
I can't say enough about Julie and the whole Kritzman family! They are warm, caring, and attentive. We LOVED getting Julie's daily e-mail reports and photos! It was clear that Thabo got tons of love, attention, walks, play, and snuggles -- and that he REALLY felt at home. Wrigley, their lab, was a fun companion for Thabo. Julie was also very conscientious about all the details of Thabo's care and comfort and so helpful when we had to leave a day early because of the blizzard. Thabo has found a home away from home -- and we have peace of mind when we need to travel and leave him behind.
I have so many wonderful things to say about Julie, Josh and the whole Krintzman family and what perfect dog-sitters they were, I'm a little concerned I might come across as deranged. I seriously cannot recommend them highly enough. A friend canceled on us at the last minute in watching our dog for a week over the holidays, and we were kind of panicked. Julie was so accommodating and warm, and had us over for a meet-and-greet with only a few hours' notice. It was instantly clear that this was dog paradise: Lovely house, big enclosed backyard, awesome dog playmate (their Lab Wrigley - he's such a sweetie), adorable kids to play with her, and beautiful, safe walking trails and open green spaces to run around in right down the street. The whole time we were away, we got pictures every day that got us all teared up, as they were all of our very happy dog with Julie's insanely cute kids frolicking in the woods or snuggling indoors. When I brought Nori back a second time (when Julie again patiently and kindly accommodated a last-minute panicked request) and walked up the front steps, she was jumping and yelping with excitement to get in the door. Julie & Co are not just incredible dog-sitters, but truly fantastic people. I'm very grateful we found them.
Julie and her family are amazing! We received daily photos and updates during our dog's stay. He got loads of fresh air, exercise, and attention. I was afraid he wouldn't want to come home! Will definitely contact them before our next vacation.
This was the best decision ever for my pet, Sadie. Sadie was well cared for, well loved and happy to be with Wrigley. Highly recommend Julie, her wonderful family and the delightful Wrigley. Cannot recommend this option highly enough.
