Julie has always loved animals. Growing up she was surrounded by dogs, cats, and horses. But her passion for dogs began to grow as an adult, when she adopted her first dog Riley from a local Sheltie Rescue. Riley is a special needs dog with only three legs! But that doesn't slow him down one bit. In fact, his traumatic ordeal and resulting surgery has bonded him and Julie for life.

Nursing him back to health made Julie realize that caring for dogs was so fulfilling that she adopted Kiley another "tripod" Sheltie. Riley and Kiley provided the inspiration for The Bark-O-Lounge Dog Daycare.

Julie graduated from Boston College and worked as a Registered Nurse before starting a family. Her three children and husband share her love of animals, and their house is very full of fluffy creatures!

As the children got older, Julie decided to go back to work, and open The Bark-O-Lounge Dog Daycare. Her personal experience caring for dogs, as well as working with and observing dogs has helped to build Julie's growing knowledge of dog behavior.

Julie is certified by the American Red Cross in Pet First Aid, and is a member of the National Association of Pet Sitters.
