About Julie

***I will only be petsitting during my winter break (12/18 to 1/3)***

If your dog loves to play, get belly rubs, and have someone always home than I am a great fit for your pup! I send many pictures with captions showing you how happy and how much fun your dog is having here. I treat all dogs as if they were my own.

About my dog:
I have one very adorable, very sweet puppy named Reggie. He has graduated from Puppy School I and Puppy School II. He is very friendly to all dogs (of any size) and all humans. He LOVES being a host to other dogs and loves playing with them. He is never aggressive...just always kissing, playing, and snuggling. His breed is a cavapoochon (cavalier, mini poodle, and bichon mix). Reggie sleeps with me in bed, so if your dog is use to that he/she is more than welcome to join! Reggie and I both get excited every time we host a dog here!

TRAINING EXPERIENCE: I taught Reggie sit, paw, down, rollover, stay, come, stand, go potty, leave it, drop it, and stay with duration. I would be more than happy to teach your dog new tricks or work on existing tricks!

About me:
I am 26 years old. If your dog loves to play, enjoys belly rubs, and being the center of attention than I am a great fit for your pup! I love going on runs with the dogs. I am home most of the day, every day so your dog will not be left alone. Reggie does not like to be alone so we make an effort to always have someone home, whether it is me, my boyfriend or my parents. We treat and take care of all dogs we petsit as if they were our own. Regardless of the type, size, or number of dogs you have, I would be more than happy to take care of them for you! My mom is a nurse and I am in healthcare so we are both very comfortable with and have had experience giving medicine and injections to dogs when needed. I also have my own car with navigation, so can pick up, drop off, and have a ride for any emergency.

About my home:
During my winter break, I will be petsitting with my parents on a nice, SAFE home in Bala Cynwyd. I live on a cul-de-sac, so there are rarely any cars. I have a big front yard and a completely FENCED IN BACK YARD for the dogs to play in. I also live across the street from a HUGE completely gated in field that the dogs love running around in. I bring toys with me to the field so they can play fetch, run around and have fun! I also bring a water bowel for them that I fill up with the field's water fountain so the dogs always have water. Since Reggie has a small puppy bladder, I very frequently take the dogs outside to my yard or out on walks around the neighborhood, usually every hour. max every 2 hours. I always have water available for the dogs in multiple places around the house and in both of my front and back yard. There is also plenty of space inside for the dogs to play as well many toys in both yards and around the house for the doggies.

What I have:
I have SO MANY TOYS and many dog supplies here with me ready to use to have fun and take care of your dog! Including: treats, training treats, lots of toys, 2 small dog beds, medium dog bed, large dog bed, MIND ENHANCING INTERACTIVE dog puzzles and games, 3 different Kong toys with puppy paste and peanut butter paste, puppy shampoo, dog brushes, teeth cleaner, nail clipper, different types of leashes, balls to play catch, nature's miracle stain and odor remover, potty training pads, blankies, squeaky toys, stuffed animals, dog bones, food and water bowls.

About my cats:
We have 2 rescue cats. Both are friendly, use to dogs here, and DE-CLAWED. They spend most of the day outside and out of sight and come back when they are hungry or sleepy. They mind their own business and stay away from Reggie (and all dogs). If your dog is Large, he must get along with cats (aka ignore and not chase or bark at cats) in order for me to pet sit your dog.

Some Additional Notes:
**I only petsit small to medium sized dogs or VERY calm, obedient large breed dogs. I will not petsit any pit bulls or pit mixes.
**Meet and greets are required. Meet and greets are held at my house. My address and contact info will be given to you after you schedule a meet and greet.
**My rate during this time is $50/night (my holiday rate) due to the high demand during this time period (christmas and new years)

Please feel free to ask me any questions. Thanks for your consideration!

Julie was wonderful with Winnie and communicated very well with my husband and I all throughout her stay. We regularly received pictures and videos to show how much fun Winnie was having and it clear that Julie puts a lot of love into her doggie care.
It was our first time sending little Cooper for Boarding, and we were so glad that we found Julie. She was very accommodating and took great care of Cooper even when Cooper was acting up one night. Julie's dog Raggie is so cute and friendly that by the end of Cooper's stay, they becsme best buddies. Cooper was so sad to leave a Julie and Raggie and other play buddies Julie was pet sitting. We will send our dog to Julie again if she resume pet sitting in the future.
Julie was truly wonderful and provided great updates to us while we were away. Maggie enjoyed her time so much she was sad to leave! She's extremely accommodating and let us know if there were any problems as well giving her lots of love in our absence. We would highly recommend!!!
With a senior dog that is having trouble with movement, I appreciate her coming to the house and taking care of him and giving some love to the cat. I can't recommend her enough. Thanks, Julie!!!
Julie was FANTASTIC!! I was nervous to leave my dog, Darcy, with someone I had never met but my apprehensions dissolved immediately when I met Julie. She has a huge yard where Darcy was able to run and play - Darcy LOVED Julie's dog, Reggie - she was flexible and accommodating and sent photos, videos and updates the whole time I was away. Darcy has been asleep since I picked her up! She definitely didn't want to leave and I would absolutely send her to Julie's house again. Thank you Julie and DogVacay for providing such a great experience for both Darcy and me!
Julie and her family were great! Wrigley loved racing and playing with their dog and came home exhausted. She texted us photos and videos throughout the weekend.
Our dog, Henny, LOVES spending time at Julie's!!! She sends frequent updates along with pictures. She is incredibly warm and nurturing and takes excellent care of Henny. We highly recommend Julie - she's the best!
Julie was wonderful, extremely flexible, she sent lots of pictures and videos, and I know that my dog was so happy and well attended to while there! We will definitely use again, highly recommend!
Maisie loves visiting Julie and her cute dog Reggie. Julie sends tons of photos and reports on activities. I know that Maisie has a wonderful time because she is pretty tired when I pick her up! She doesn't look back once we get to Julie's and the doggie fun begins....and that's fine with me
Julie is awesome! My doggie had a great time, and loved meeting Julie's dog Reggie. Julie sent me great pictures of Klybie during my time away. I know Klybie is LOVED when he's with Julie and her family!
Our dog had a fantastic time with Julie! He can't wait to stay there again soon.
Julie recently watched Louie over a long weekend for us, this was to be his first overnight "away from home". Once we met Julie for the "meet and greet" my concerns were gone, and I knew that Louie would be in good hands. Upon our return, Louie wanted to stay with Julie and his new friend Reggie. I would highly recommend Julie and hope to use her services again in the future... Thanks!
Arya seemed to have had a great time at Julie's place and Reggie (the resident dog) is just great and Arya got along very well with him. Will highly recommend Julie. Vinod
Again, Julie was a wonderful host to my dog. She takes great care and shows a lot of love and kindness. She is the perfect sitter. I will continue to call on her to watch my pet.
Another great experience. Cannot recommend Julie highly enough.
Another great stay for Casper with Julie. So glad we found such a wonderful pet sitter nearby. We love the daily updates with photos! We will definitely be back. Thank you Julie!
Maisie spent four happy days with Julie and her little dog Reggie. Maisie had a fantastic time. I know this because Julie sent me lots of photos and videos of her romping around, and (at the end of the day) sleeping soundly. We will definitely use her again.

Maddie had a fantastic time; she didn't want to leave. We were extremely happy with the care Julie provided and how she kept us updated with texts and photos. Definitely using Julie in the future. We highly recommend her.
Julie was a wonderful pet sitter. We loved receiving her daily updates and photos. Casper looks like he had a wonderful happy time. Will definitely be calling on Julie again - thank you! Diane
Julie took great care of our Buddy! She posted pictures and kept me updated throughout his stay. We will definitely use Julie again!
Julie was a great find for watching my dog. She was so kind and I could tell that she loves animals. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a pet sitter. I will definitely use her services again.
Julie was wonderful. Jimmy was well exercised and got along great with her dog Reggie. We rec'd lots of pictures and updates and he came home exhausted - always a good sign. We will use her again.
If there were a category for BEST Doggie-Sitter in all of Philadelphia, Julie R would receive it.

She was just the perfect sitter for our dog, Lucy. It was the first time in 5 years since we’ve adopted Lucy that we placed her in a sitter’s care while away from home. As Lucy was rescued from a shelter for abandoned animals, she is timid and stays close to us. She is uncertain around other dogs. We needed a sitter, therefore, who preferably had no other pets. Julie R was the answer!

She kept in touch with us throughout the 2 days and evening she was caring for Lucy, informing us about Lucy’s activities and well-being with 11 text messages, 23 pictures, and 2 videos!

If you are needing a loving, understanding, and competent doggie-sitter while in Philadelphia, please choose Julie. You and your pet will be glad you did.
Julie was absolutely wonderful. She did a great job checking in with us and keeping us posted with awesome, playful doggy pictures and videos. He stayed active with her and was super exhausted when we picked him up.... in a good way! We hope to definitely use her again really soon!
I wish I had more stars to rate Julie. She was so warm and personable and is very obviously a dog lover. She sent me numerous pics and texts over my dog's stay with her and it was obvious that he was very relaxed and happy to be with her. He looked great when I picked him up and although he was happy to see me, I could tell he had bonded completely with Julie and was actually sad to leave her. I would use Julie again in an instant and can wholeheartedly recommend her to other DogVacay users. She went over and above and gave my Teddy lots and lots of love, exercise and personal attention and he and I had a wonderful experience as a result. Thank you Julie and the wonderful staff at DogVacay.
I cannot say enough great things about Julie! My dog had such a great time with Julie he almost did not want to come home! I've never seen hime so relaxed after a visit. Not only did Julie take care of Jake last minute, but she really devoted a lot of care and attention to my boy, with special treats, engaging games and walks galore. Julie even took care of me, sending pictures and updates before I even thought to check in. Five stars all around. You will not want another dog sitter after leaving your pup with Julie :-)
