About Julie

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Originally from the Midwest ~ barnyard to backyard, I've experienced it all caring for sweet creatures. I'm a retired flight attendant and a physically active, responsible pet sitter who enjoys hiking Balboa Park horse trails and Coronado Beach with dogs during the day. By night, I'm a stay at home, who loves to cook, read and be surrounded by a little fur. My backyard is gated and large.. When the dogs are playing outside, I'm there too. But it's also important they get walks. The dogs drink filtered water - extremely important in San Diego where water can be quite harsh if your dog is visiting from another state.

I volunteered for a high profile dog trainer for security dogs locally for many years, learned a lot about behavior and what to watch for and still attend continuing pet education seminars. Big, small...I like them all and so does my dog, Charlie! Please stop by for a meet n greet. We want to get to know you and accommodate your dog any way we can.

Julie was an was an excellent sitter for our 11 year old, male Basset. This is the first time we have used Julie. She kept us updated daily on how he was doing, along with photos. She even took him for daily walks. She made his experience at her home as close as possibly to his normal lifestyle. We felt totally confident of Julie's ability to take care of him.....
Julie was flexible, warm and attentive. She kept us updated with texts and adorable photos. Her own dog, Charlie, is a hoot!
I was able to schedule a Dogvacay at the last minute and Julie kept me posted with pictures and I felt very comfortable with leaving my Buddy with her. Would definitely have Julie watch Buddy again.
Julie was such a help. Stuck in a last-minute need for a dog sitter… She hustled to help me out with our puppy! Julie kept me informed through the day of how much fun our puppy was having… Which made being away from him much easier. Would highly recommend… Thanks for everything!
It was my first time using a dog vacay and Julie made everything easy and I was not as stressed after talking with her. I received lots of pictures of Guin from Julie. Thank you for being such a great dog sitter and taking great care of our family dog.
Julie is sweet, considerate and flexible. Daisy loved her stay!
We had a great experience with Julie! We drove into town from Arizona and dropped our puppy with Julie and I was nervous (to say the least!). I was anxious to leave our puppy in a new environment after a long car ride and Julie was so understanding and reassuring. Avery had a wonderful stay and we got many updates and pictures to reassure us that Avery was settling in well and getting lots of love and attention!!
Julie is wonderful! All three of our dogs had a wonderful time and enjoyed a lot of play time. So much so, that they have virtually slept the two days since coming home! Julie is highly recommended and we will absolutely request her for our future dog Vacay needs!
So we found DogVacay on Yelp and had never heard of the service. So glad that we did! I was a little apprehensive at first but after reading the reviews and feeling safe with the way DogVacay screens the hosts I was ready to go. Julie responded to my request within hours and made me feel comfortable very quickly. We exchanged some texts and then had a phone chat the next day. I took our 6 year old Boston to her home with food, toys, bed etc and Julie did a great job of introducing Pepper to her fenced in play area and then her dog Charlie. After the usual posturing between K-9s, they were chasing balls and running around like new friends. My 4 days out of town were made easier with twice daily pics of our pup playing, eating and just hanging out with his new buds. Julie genuinely cares for these dogs and it shows. I highly recommend her to others going out of town for a few days. You and your pup will be happy that you did!
Julie is amazing. She is attentive, considerate and loving. I am very happy to have found someone like her to look after my Daisy.
Nelson, our black lab puppy, absolutely loved staying over at Julie's. She has a great back yard for letting dogs run around and play fetch. We are definitely going to take Nelson back to Julie next time we leave town.
Julie was terrific. My pups had a great few days with her while my place was fumigated. She sent pictures and updates at least once per day and so I felt confident they were being well taken care of - even pampered! Julie also groomed them and so they came home to me cleaner than they had left!!
Julie was great with m dog, first time leaving my dog and she talked me through it she was professional and sweet she send me pictures of my dog through the whole weekend she was amazing I look forward to working with her in the future
Julie was fantastic with our two big dogs! They returned to us perfectly tired and happy after a day of running around her big, fenced backyard. We would definitely ask Julie to host our big pups again.
Julie is very professional, kind and attentive to the dogs in her care. We appreciated knowing she would be with our dog that majority of the time and that he'd have plenty of outdoor playtime in her fenced yard. Julie was great about sending us updates with photos during his stay, which put us at ease. We would love to send our dog with Julie again next time we're away. He is in very competent hands with her. Thanks, Julie!
It is very apparent that Julie is a dog lover. She is very attentive and focused on their well being. Julie has a large back yard where she let's the dogs out to play and stays with them while they do so. My dog Mason tends to have separation anxiety, however it didn't take long for him to warm up to Julie and make himself comfortable in her very "dog friendly" home.
Outstanding as usual! Julie sends me photos of my dog regularly and Penny's grown attached to her new "pack." It's really like a vacation for her each time!
Julie is very sweet and a great match for my dog, Luca's, personality.
Julie did an excellent job with Penny as she always does. It's always a relief for me to know Penny is with a trained dog sitter and not just someone who does it as a hobby.
