About Julie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Why leave your dog at a large daycare/boarding when he can have me and my dog all to him/herself for playtime!?

I have owned dogs my whole life and currently have a male, neutered, Pointer/Heeler mix who is about 2 years old. He is friendly with all people and dogs and very well-socialized but definitely still has a lot of puppy energy during play time. He likes to play with the bigger dogs and understands that the little ones need their space sometimes.

I have experience taking care of several dogs, from the laziest 4-pound lap-lovers to the 90-pound mud-rolling, pool-loving, face-licking, balls of energy.

When you leave your dog with me, I can accommodate any playtime, exercise, or downtime needs. Activities can include trips to our neighborhood park for fresh air, the Roosevelt or Meridian dog park, long walks on local foothill trails or the Greenbelt (we have close access to both), tennis ball time at the local park, trips to the Boise River, hanging out in our fenced-in backyard, belly scratches, or sunlight snoozes.

My background includes taking care of my own dogs (have owned two Yorkshire Terriers in the past), and in-home overnight boarding for small to large breeds both adult and senior. I am available for walks, doggie day care, checkups, or overnight boarding either in my home or yours. My full-time work gig is remote from home with a occasional part-time retail duties a few days a week, so I can be pretty flexible with my times. If I do need to leave to work for a half-day or run other errands without the dogs, they hang out in our large upstairs laundry room or can have free range of the house, depending on the dog. If I have to work a longer day away from home the dogs come with me or my husband stays home with them.

I prefer not to book more than 3 weeks out in advance due to the release of my retail work schedule being only two weeks ahead of time. I don't like to commit to watching a dog if I know I might be gone from the house a lot during the stay. I require visiting puppies to be housebroken (though I know accidents can happen! - not a big deal!). I also require meet and greets with any male dogs prior to boarding in order to evaluate any potential dominance issues. My dog tends to take after the behavior and personality of visiting dogs, so mellow = mellow and energy = energy.

Wonderful and has a true connection with animals. They Took stellar care of our dogs! With regular photos texts and videos while we were away. We will certainly be returning to her whenever we travel again and would recommend her to anyone we know. Thank you!
Julie was very accommodating and walked my dog when I had to be at work, pretty last minute. She sent me photos and set my mind at ease about my pup's being home alone. She's awesome!
Julie, her husband, & Stabler (their pup) were great hosts for our two dogs. Their home was clean & tidy...the yard, too! We felt very comfortable leaving our dogs with them. We appreciated her sending pics & comments during our time away. Our pups seemed very content when we picked them up.
Will definitely contact her again!!
