About Julia

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We would love to take in some canine company! We have one long haired dachshund named Buster that loves to play, especially with other dachshunds. There is a size restriction in my building, so I ask at this time for dogs under 30 lbs.

We are home most of the time other than going to work during the week from 9-5. If your dog is used to going out in the middle of the day, we unfortunately work too far to be able to come home. Our own dog goes out at 8 AM, 5 PM and again at 10 PM. However, this is no problem for weekend stays.

We enjoy taking long walks and will take your dog along if he or she enjoys walks, too. I also run and will be happy to take larger dogs out for a few miles.

We do prefer to watch dogs that have crates if it is during the week while we're at work, but if your dog is fully house trained, they are completely welcome!

Another great experience! They were very accommodating with out last minute plans as well as the drop-off / pick-up times. The text message updates were great. Legal the Beagle seemed to have a great time.
We were so thankful that Newton was able to stay with Julia, her husband and Buster. We had a last minute request and they were able to take Newton within just a few hours. Newton was happy and playful when we picked him up later that night. We'd highly recommend Mutts on M ST.
My wife and I had the best experience leaving our rescued beagle with Julia! She updated us with photos of our dog regularly and this really put us at ease. Her house is great and very dog-friendly. She definitely knows what she's doing and offers the pleasant demeanor that works well for any dog! We would recommend her to any small-to-midsize dog owner.

Thanks, Julia! Legal the Beagle had a great time!
Another successful visit at Julia's! Phoebe and Buster have become fast friends and she's looking forward to her next vacay!
Phoebe enjoyed her stay with Julia - we will be back!
Julia and her dog Buster were such wonderful hosts to my dog while I was gone! Julia was patient and accommodating to my (ever-changing) departure times, and it made a stressful trip much easier. We will definitely use Julia again in the future.
Julia was great! She lots of photos and Freckles seemed like he had a great time. We highly recommend.
Julia was very good with our little baby girl.
Julia, her home, pup and husband were wonderful! So grateful to have our dog stay in such a loving home. Julia sent photos daily which brought great comfort. Our deep appreciation.
Julia and her husband were awesome sitters for Cosmo! Their adorable dachsund was a wonderful companion for him, and he was able to spend the weekend lounging in sun patches like he normally would at home.
Julia is great! I felt so comfortable leaving Baxter in her care. She sent pictures and updates frequently, and Baxter seemed like he genuinely had a good time during his stay. Julia responded almost immediately to messages and was able to accommodate my odd schedule, which I was so grateful for! Her dog Buster is also adorable. Overall, Julia is great, I had an excellent experience, and I will definitely be coming back again in the future!
Mutts on M were excellent! Pics and updates during the stay are the norm but Julia's real flexibility and understanding around delayed flights and pickup were pretty extraordinary and appreciated.

Maggy comes home happy and tired and wants to go visit every time we walk past their building. 5 Stars Pawsome!
It's very relieving to know that C&L are in great hands when Julia takes them in. The girls always have a great time and come home in much better moods than when we board them elsewhere. Two thumbs up and 5 gold stars to Julia!! Thanks!
Miley was well taken care of and I received lots of pictures!!
Julia was such a great host! She sent me daily updates and pictures of Emmie while I was away. Her pup, Buster, was so cute and very welcoming to Emmie during our meet-and-greet visit. I would highly recommend her!
Thanks for taking such good care of Shorty! I loved getting the update with picture. It made me feel less sad for leaving him. He was in good hands! Thanks again. -Leah
As with all of Cangney & Lacey's stays with you, they love it and we greatly appreciate it. Can't say Thank You enough for the great care you provide to the girls. :-)
Thanks for taking wonderful care of Tux during my time away. I appreciate all the attention you gave him and the opportunity to play with Buster. I know he had a great time because he went straight to sleep when we got home.
Julia and her husband were awesome! Fiona had a great time chilling with their weenie Buster- I know because Julia sent me tons of pics and videos, without me even having to ask. Fiona has dry eye and requires a bunch of medications, all of which Julia had no problem administering. In fact, her eye looked better when I picked her up than it did when I dropped her off! I hope Fi can stay there again next time we go out of town.
As with all our reservations with you Julia, your care for Cagney & Lacey is greatly appreciated. So sorry for not getting this review done earlier. Steve has been traveling non-stop and I'm(plus the girls) in Ohio helping to care for my 85 year old father who is recovering from open heart surgery. I'm hoping to be back in DC by 11/2. Again, we can not Thank You enough or tell you enough how please we are with being able to leave the girls in your care. 5 Stars!!!!
Cody had a great time with Julia, her husband and Buster. She sent me picture updates throughout my trip and gave me peace of mind that he was in good hands. When I came to pick him up, he barely cared that I was there because he had so much fun playing fetch all weekend. Julia even let Cody keep Buster's toy, which he still plays with here at home. It was my first experience using DogVacay, and I'm happy to say it was a positive one.
Thanks so much to Julia, her husband and Buster for taking such good care of Bocca! He did not want to go back home after his stay with Julia, that's how great of a time he had! I was also very grateful to be updated on how Bocca was doing everyday: I even received a wagging tail picture! Definitely would recommend this host.
Julia was an excellent host for Heidi, she sent a lot of pictures and took her on long walks, and when we brought Heidi home, she was very happy and relaxed.
Julia was great once again! She sent over tons of updates and really made us feel comfortable knowing our pup was in good hands. Highly recommended!
Julia and her husband are absolutely amazing dogsitters! This was my first time using DogVacay, so I had some initial reservations about leaving my dog with someone I had never met, however, Julia made the experience absolutely seamless and worry-free. I felt completely comfortable leaving my dog, Sasha, in Julia's care. Sasha came home totally relaxed with her tail wagging. Julia even texted me pictures of Sasha throughout the weekend to keep me updated. I especially loved seeing pictures of Sasha playing and cuddling with Buster, Julia's sweet doxie. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to leave my dog with Julia the next time I go out of town. Thanks for taking such great care of my furbaby :)
Julia, her husband and Buster were very warm and welcoming, felt very comfortable leaving our little one with them right away. They sent us pictures of Lula (our mini-doxie) enjoying their sunny apartment and being cuddled and loved. Appreciated their flexibility in meeting us somewhere when we could not drive to their home because of closed streets for the inauguration parade. Would definitely recommend them and try them again! Thanks guys!!!
Julia and her husband were amazing! We felt completely comfortable leaving Teddy with them and their dog. They sent pictures and took Teddy to the park while we were away. We definitely hope to leave Teddy with Julia next time were away, and highly recommend her!!
Julia and her husband were awesome! It was such a fantastic experience, and I had great peace of mind leaving my doggie with them. They sent me pics and updates, and geniunely seemed sad to say goodbye. I will definitely use them again.
