My little guys had a great time with Julie and her pack! They came home tired and happy. Julie was super easy to communicate with and sent lots of cute pics :)

Julie has been great with Doug. She is very friendly and accommodating and drop-off/pick-up is a breeze!

Play, snack, & snooze with us!

Hi! I'm AJ (Julie) the mama of Duncan, an energetic, sweet, and social Shepherd-Akita-supermutt who will turn 4 at the end of August. He is a true pack animal and gets excited any time I tell him anyone is "coming over." Duncan will try to play with every dog who's down for a wrestle or run!

Please note that I'm no longer taking NEW boarding clients that are under 1 year old, unneutered, or over ...

What Julie would like to know about your dog

What are your dog’s dietary and exercise needs? Does your furry child like to play with others? Is it ok if I let your dog on the couch? Does your dog have up-to-date Dane County Dog Park tags?

I love all dogs! Most dogs love my boy, but know that he is very social. He's matured to the point where he adapts his play to tone it down, and he's diversified his friend base beyond those that meet same-size, same-energy level qualifications. His besties include Rooney the pug and Zeus the 11-year-old Beagle, whose parents call us his "daytime family." <3

When Julie watches your pet

Dogs can play in the yard, or chill inside, where I have several cozy spots, including a little quiet "cave" in a tiny room with a blanket-covered floor and tapestry covering the door.

Whether your dog's visit includes time to run free at the park, or due to the timing, exercise takes the form of playing ball in the house, wrestling, and following me around, I can almost guarantee your pup will go home tired!

Guests have joined us on adventures to the amazing Dane County and City of Madison parks! If you're passing through town for a wedding or Badgers game, be sure to bring your pup's rabies tags and other licenses and we'll get them a day pass to make sure they don't miss out on the fun! Duncs and I are regulars at Sycamore Dog Park, where we have an awesome pack of dogs of all size, age, and personality. Weekends are a chance to venture to expand their sniff collection, zoom in new territory, and incite muddy shenanigans.

Also know that I love to take dogs everywhere I go, when possible, and with permission. Some of the outings with guest dogs: a dog charity event at a local brewing company, food cart lunch date at Capitol Square, pet-centric street festival, boating, thrift shopping, and a backyard bbq to celebrate a dog pal's 1st birthday.

Looking back to summer... When it was super hot outside, I made sure we all get time indoors with the window unit and fans. Pups also got chilled water & ice cubes, and for those whose diet allows, chicken ice cubes were a big hit!
