About Julia

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Greetings fellow dog lovers!

Born and bred in Philly, I've just returned to the city after several years in DC where I watched over 15 different dogs through DogVacay and loved my experience. I've just started my MBA at the University of Pennsylvania- my schedule is packed with school activities, so I can't be a full-time dog owner (yet!) so I'm constantly finding dogs to love as their self-proclaimed adopted aunt.

As someone who has owned many pets, I know it can be nervewracking to leave your loved one with a stranger. Trust that you are leaving your pup with a responsible and experienced person who can't wait to care for your dog while you're away, treating your pup as if it were my own. I am happy to engage your dog with games, cuddle side by side on the couch, and cater to any specific allergy/ medicinal/ exercise needs.

During the weekdays, I have class from 9am-4pm but am happy to provide longer walks in the morning and evening. I also genuinely look forward to spending time with your pup so will want to compensate for time away : ) I am happy to check in with you during your dog's stay, sharing updates and pics of your pet safe and sound so you don't miss your furry friend too much!

Julia was awesome! Would definitely have her take care of our dogs again. She sent pictures and videos of the dogs every day while we were gone and let us know right away when one of the pups got sick (fortunately nothing serious). We highly recommend her!

Julia was fantastic with our girls! They were happy and calm when we got home, which means they were taken good care of. We got lots of updates and pictures from Julia and I felt very comfortable with her. We'll definitely be calling her again!
The morning Julia left my apartment, my 60-lb English bulldog sat on Julia's feet while she was getting ready to go so she couldn't leave! She was wonderful with him and I could tell just from our meet and greet that she's a dog lover and would treat my dog as her own. She sent me pictures and updates throughout her stay and by the time I returned from my trip, my dog had clearly bonded with her. Julia is wonderful!

Julia was amazing! My pups had a blast with her and they almost didn't want to come back home! I also loved receiving pictures throughout the stay. You can tell her passion and love for dogs and we completely felt at ease the whole time. Highly recommend her and I plan on using her services again!

First time on the site, whole experience was great. Julia was a fantastic host for Shiloh, highly recommend!
We greatly appreciate the wonderful care and warmth with which Julia took care of our two dogs over a long weekend while we were out of town! Frequent texts and pixture updates kept us assured that our boys were happy. Julia stayed in our home and I would absolutely recommend her services to anyone looking for a trustworthy, caring person to look after their pets. Definitely will ask her to stay again - thanks Julia!

It was our first time using DogVacay an we left our 8 year old pug with Julia over the weekend. She was wonderful and so nice! She was great with Bella, who can be nervous around new people. We received updates throughout the weekend and Julia was flexible with our pick-up time, as we were stuck in traffic coming home. It was great to know that we left Bella in such capable hands. We definitely recommend Julia and will use her again.

Julia was great! She was so sweet to our dog who gets very anxious. Our dog loved her and was very relaxed. We will definitely look her up again if we are in the area. :)
Kaali loves staying at Julia. This was the second time our dog stayed at Julia's and she looked happy and at home when I picked her up after 4 days. Julia and her roommate are super sweet and treat Kaali like it is their own dog, she gets a lot of attention and affection, which she loves. She sends regular updates and pictures. We will definitely ask Julia again next time we need a sitter!

First time we have left our dog for a week and we were able to completely relax on our vacation while he stayed with Julia. She cared enough to understand our dog's needs, including taking him on many walks/runs through some miserable weather conditions and emailing us with updates and questions. So grateful to have found someone our dog enjoyed so much. We will definitely reach out to Julia next time we need a place for Teddy.
