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.

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 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 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.

Pictures include our current dog (Stabler), my last Yorkshire Terrier (who is still alive and very active at 14 and lives with my parents in Illinois), a senior (13 years old!) yellow lab I take care of in Boise, my aunt's labradoodle fishing with me, and Boomer (a 90 pound lab I used to dog-sit while living in California).

Heidi spent the day and had a great time! Thanks again Julie!
Julie is an obvious pet-lover. She took good care of our pets and sent several videos and photos of them playing at the dog park and having treats. They seemed to have a great time together and we would book her again.
Julie was a great host. Phyla came back happy and content, and Julie was extremely flexible. My flight home was delayed late into the night, and Julie was gracious enough to allow Phyla to spend the extra evening without any fuss or complaint. Highly recommend!
Julie was awesome! She sent lots of pictures and videos during Jax stay. I can tell that he really enjoyed himself. He will definitely be back :)
Julie took excellent care of our Annie and was really flexible in working with us on drop off and pick up times. She also sent us lots of pictures which helped our children not miss Annie as much!
Jax enjoyed his stay with Julie. She was easy to communicate with and flexible to our needs. She sent frequent updates and pictures. Jax played in the water and went on hikes. He also played well her dog and we'll definitely use her again!
Julie sent me plenty of pictures and videos of Piper on her stay, it really put me at ease during my vacation. I also love how active she was with Piper!
Julie did a great job with Molly! She took her up into the foothills and Molly got some great exercise that day.
Julie provided a wonderful home and lots of attention for Cujo while we were away. There was a wonderful big safe fenced yard with the perfect playmate, Stabler! Cujo was treated to walks and great care. We highly recommend Julie for a great dogVacay experience. Many thanks Julie!
Julie was awesome. She texted us each time she was over to walk our dogs. Both our dogs really enjoyed being with her. Not only did she walk our dogs she also made sure they had plenty of water and food in their bowls. We will definitely be using her again in the near future.
Julie was great! I knew immediately I was leaving my dog in a household that would welcome her and make her feel at home. We received texts and photos while gone - assurance that Julie really loves her dog and takes great care of the dogs she watches for others.
When we returned and got our dog back in her own home, I think she had a little period of time where she was pretty sad it was over... ha!
Heidi had a great time staying at Julie's. She took Heidi on walks and even up Table Rock with her dog, Stabler. Julie sent lots of photos and updates during her stay. Heidi will definitely be going back! Thanks Julie for taking good care of Heidi.
Julie was an awesome host. Very responsive, flexible and sent pictures throughout my dog's stay with her
