" I strongly recommend Julie for anyone who needs an excellent pet and house sitter. Julie is very dog savvy and worked very well with our rescue dog Sadie. She has a calm, soothing energy which immediately set Sadie and our minds at ease. Our cat, Sampson was also immediately in love. Julie has excellent attention to detail and is very conscientious. She was very attentive to changes that occurred with our pets and our house while we were away. She was very communicative and this helped to ease any concerns about our animals and our home in our absence. When we returned our pets were happy, content and our home was spotless. As a veterinarian in Portland I will recommend Julie to all of my clients who are in need of pet and house sitting services." -Dr. Keith Weingardt, DVM
"Julie was great! She was flexible with timing, arrived before we left, sent us photos, and welcomed us home. Our 2 dogs really liked her and she did a great job house sitting. We would definitely recommend her." -Jeff H., Portland, OR
"I love dropping our English Creme Golden Retriever off with Julie, knowing that they are both going to have a fun adventure for the day and that she's going to be in good care. Julie is incredibly responsible, communicative, and friendly. I highly recommend her with your pups!" -Lisa R., Portland, OR
"Julie was absolutely wonderful with my English Bulldog puppy and cat. I had a very last minute trip and she met me right away. She took great care of them and our home and I would definitely hire her again!" -Amy C., Portland, OR
"Julie pet-sat our two dogs for 7 weeks. She was excellent! One of our dogs was elderly, and the other a very active young adult, and Julie effectively catered to both of their exercise and daily needs. She was loving and affectionate and cared for them as if they were her own. When we returned, our pups were happy and content. When Julie joined us for dinner a few weeks after our return, both our pups were ecstatic to see her. That was the biggest recommendation of all! We've had Julie back to pet-sit on several occasions since then, and each time we know our pet family are in wonderful hands."

"Julie has looked after my three spaniels several times while I was away. She is wonderful with animals. Not only can she be entirely relied upon to do everything you ask her to do, she even did a little additional training with one of my dogs. My dogs require people who know and understand dogs and can care for a geriatric dog with medical needs and two high energy younger ones, one of whom has social issues. She sent updates and pictures and had no hesitation to ask questions about their care if the need arose. She is also an very responsible house sitter. I have no reservations about recommending Julie to care for your house and your pets." -Becky M., Victoria, Canada
"You are very lucky if you have the chance to have Julie pet / house sit for you. My little ones and my house were very well cared for and the dogs loved her. Julie is proactive and easy to communicate with if anything arises. I would not hesitate to have Julie in my home, and to care for my pets, anytime."
-Wendy Z.,, Victoria, Canada
"Julie house/pet sat for our two small dogs while we were away on urgent family business for three weeks. Just before they were to sit for us, Julie suddenly had her own family emergency to deal with. It must have been a difficult choice, but she did not let us down and followed through on the booking. For that alone, I have to highly commend her for her commitment. She took excellent care of our dogs, one of whom requires braces to be strapped on every day and taken off each night and both dogs required administration of medications . She not only handled all the normal medical needs of our dogs, but in addition, Julie took the responsibility of contacting our vet for additional treatment when they both developed sores on their legs. Yet another complication was added when the brace that our dog depends upon for his walks suddenly broke. Without it he would not have been able to take his daily walks and his injury would have worsened. Julie took his brace to a local seamstress to get it fixed so he could continue with his walks and prevent further injury. She kept in touch about the dogs care and helped put our mind at ease. Julie sincerely loves all animals and goes above and beyond to be sure that they are well cared for. We don't think our dogs missed us at all and must miss the care and attention they got. In addition, we came back to a clean and tidy house. We could not have asked for a better sitter, and we would highly recommend her. We hope she may sit for us again." -Marlyn T., Victoria, Canada
