About Julie

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Julie, I have an 8 year old son and we live with my boyfriend on the bottom floor of a duplex house with a fenced in portion of our back yard for dogs. We have a young lab-pitbull mix who would be present with any other dogs I'm watching, so I can only take dogs who get along well with kids and dogs.

My dog Frankie is still young and super energetic, he loves to play with other dogs but our trainer commented that he's very respectful when he can sense that another dog isn't feeling it... so after the hype dies down he isn't a problem.

I'm a dog lover and I've been enjoying learning with my own dog. If I watched your dog at my house we would play inside, they're allowed anywhere in the house and on the couches, and outside we can play ball and frisbee and take walks. If you need a home visit to check up on your dog I wouldn't bring my dog.

I work a night job Monday, Thursday, and Sunday 4-10pm, and during the day I am a part-time dog walker but I'm never gone for more than 5 hours at a time during the days. My son's in school most of the day but once he's off the bus or if he was home for the day he would interact with your dog as well. On the nights I work my boyfriend is home with our son so your dog wouldn't spend much time alone. I'm an energetic and responsible pet lover and we live close to our vet in Chelmsford and a 24 hour emergency vet in Westford if there was ever an emergency.

About the rate...
When you request a reservation, be as specific as possible about pickup and drop off times. We charge $35/night, but if you're looking for daycare with no overnights or if your overnight is going to span less than 18 hours I will adjust the rate accordingly, please let me know if you have any questions.

Julie is incredibly welcoming and flexible about requests. She clearly adores canines of all kinds (even slightly neurotic ones such as ours!). Julie was lightning-fast in responding to my initial inquiry as well as all follow-up messaging and did not bat an eye when original plans adjusted along the way for both pickup and drop off. Our two dogs had clearly had a WONDERFUL stay based on their smiling faces when they were picked up. I feel very comfortable and confident in saying that any pooch lucky enough to stay with Julie would definitely be shown a good time!
Julie and her dog, Frankie, were so welcoming from the first minute. Julie clearly understands and loves dogs. Frankie loves to play in whatever way the guest dog prefers. Her home has hardwood or tile throughout and a fenced yard making it very dog-friendly. My dog, Riley, became part of their family for that week. He was glad to see me when I returned, but I know he misses Julie and Frankie. With frequent photos and updates from Julie, I never worried about my dog. I knew he was having as good of a vacation as I was!
Julie was great with our dog, Georgia. She was accommodating from the start and tired our pooch out. I trust her, and I wouldn't hesitate to send Georgia back. Have confidence in Julie and her family. They do a fine job!
Julie and her pup Frankie are awesome. Scout got to go to the dog park and had a blast. She was well cared for.
We went to pick up our Flora from Julie's house abd she didn't want to leave! She was havinga blast playing with her dog Fankie. Both Julie and her husband were very friendly. I was so happy that Flora did not feel the urgent need to leave, even after a large chunk of time, like she does at Petsmart Day camp.
Lucy had a great time with Julie and her family. She especially enjoyed having Frankie to run around with. Julie's son Brian is a very charming boy who took very good care of Lucy.
Julie went above and beyond by going to our town hall to replace Lucy's dog license that we lost at drop off. This allowed Lucy to go to the public dog park with Frankie for some fun.
Our dog came back to us very happy and healthy! Julie and her family are very caring, and treated Loki like one of the family!
Loki had a wonderful time. It was a test run for a longer vacation and we will definitely be bringing him back!
Julie took excellent care of Solar while we were away. She kept us up to date with photos and it was obvious Solar was having a blast with Frankie and was very loved by Julie and her family. Can't thank her enough and will definitely book her again!
