“Let’s go for a walk!”

My name is Julie and I recently moved to LA from NYC! I have a lifetime of experience caring for dogs. When I first came to CA, I dog sat my way through the state which was a wonderful way to learn different areas and get to meet some great furry friends in the process! Now that I’m settled in LA, I would love to continue taking care of pups. I was a volunteer and foster mom for It’s Ruff Without a Roof, and cared for many rescues in my home. I love to explore, hike, travel, and teach yoga.

I have been a dog lover for as long as I can remember. I have years of experience walking dogs of all types. On a walk I will take your dog's overall well being very seriously, but I will also assure that they have a great time outside of the house while on their adventure. I know that putting your dog in someone else's care can be scary because I have done that personally, but I am honest, trustworthy and I truly care about every dog I encounter. I would love to take your dog on a walk!
