Julie The Pet Nanny

Julie The Pet Nanny is owned and operated by Julie Diehl and based in Lino Lakes, Minnesota. 

Julie, Austin & Vinnie

Even as a child, Julie’s devotion to animal welfare and happiness has been a priority.  Raised in a pet-focused household, Julie has loved and cared for a wide variety of pets throughout her life—many of which were strays looking for a happy home.  Julie’s deep level of commitment toward animal health and well-being, coupled with experience and education in the pet care industry, results in an unmatched level of accountability and responsibility to pets and pet owners.

Julie shares her life with her companion of 18 years, Jay, and their two boys—Labrador Retrievers Vinnie (yellow) and Austin (black).  With Jay’s shared allegiance to superior animal care, including extensive knowledge and experience in dog obedience and field training, it’s a household full of loving history and happiness for both the two and four-legged family members!

Uncomfortable with the idea of boarding kennels or calling upon others to care for her pets, Julie has experienced the same endless worry as so many other pet owners do when separation from their pets is necessary.  Upon the long-awaited desire to offer a unique, specialized solution to this dilemma, and wanting to create something directly impactful to her life, the lives of animals and the lives of pet owners, Julie The Pet Nanny was formed.

Today Julie’s continued goal is to provide responsible, trusted pet care when you can’t be there and to ensure all animals are treated with the love, respect, appreciation and empathy they most certainly deserve.


~ Your complete satisfaction is imperative! ~
Julie The Pet Nanny is committed to providing affordable
and the best-in-class pet care services available

I am so thankful to come home after a 10 plus hours work day and find a note and know that your team always
looks after my boys with such a diligence, professionalism and love. We I feel so confident in leaving our boys
under you and your team of pet nannies because you all are amazing!

Julie and her team are the perfect Pet Nannies for my three cats! They share a special connection with my cherished pets and I never worry about their care when I'm out of town



We were so fortunate to have found Julie and had her taking care of our beloved Pete-Y for several years. He was so content when we returned from trips. The photos she would send us showed a completely relaxed kitty which many people never saw. We never had a worry about our cat nor our house when we were away on trips. Julie was incredibly supportive when we recently put Pete-Y to sleep. We would not hesitate to recommend Julie.

When we returned home, we were so excited to see our "babies!" They acted like they didn't even know we were away, so a big thank you for doing the job so well! We loved the detailed notes left for us on the counter. Again thank you, thank you! Also, we absolutely loved getting pictures while we were away.

I have used Julie now for three vacations. I certainly could not put a price on her excellent service and love for my doggies. It was so nice to go on vacation and know they were well taken care of. She certainly exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds!!


Lino Lakes

I wanted to thank you again for taking such good care of Cocoa while we were gone. I think she still misses the extra attention and is probably just waiting for us to take another vacation!



Julie has been LOVING Lou for over six months now and I have to say her care is simply outstanding! Every aspect of Julie's business is top notch and professional and the most important thing of all is that she has bonded with Lou and she has genuine love for him. He is so happy to see her when she stops in and her boarding service is simply the best. We tried a few other places and will never go anywhere other than Julie's. She takes incredible care of our pup, respects our home and is very much loved by us all! 100% Recommendation to anyone seeking her services! Thanks Julie!!

We are so glad that mom found Julie to take care of us while she and daddy are away. Julie is so good to us that we can't wait to see her every day and we really miss her when mom and dad come home. She plays with us and takes pictures of us and gives us food and treats and cleans our litter boxes and lets us help her write her notes. Don't tell, but we kind of like when mom and dad go away sometimes so we can see Julie again! We really love her. She's just purrfect!

I made it home last night and my Lovey {cat} was happy to see me and snuggled all night long! The house and her areas looked great and you did a beautiful job taking care of Lovey. Thanks so much and I will recommend you to anyone who needs a pet sitter, and have your name in my files for our next vacation.



THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!  You are incredible and we couldn't be more grateful that our fur babies had the chance to be spoiled by you!  You are the BEST of the BEST!  It's that simple--we've found our Pet Nanny for life!
