Julia P. with Boh
Fluffybutts Belltown has been my go-to pet care for my (almost) 8 year old bulldog for the past 2 years. Julia is fantastic and takes amazing care of my pup, providing top quality customer service and updates along the way. Fluffybutts offers a ton of flexibility in scheduling and services and is tough to beat in price for in-home dog care downtown. Julia provides updates with each visit and is particularly skilled at dealing with a stubborn and somewhat challenging alpha dog. I truly feel at east with Julia watching after my furbaby, especially when traveling out of town. I would highly recommend Fluffybutts to any Belltown resident in need of pet care!
Kristen F. with Penny
Fluffybutts has been such a god send to our family! Julia the owner is so amazing and treats my dog penny as if she were her own. We are lucky enough to have met Julia when our dog was just a puppy and have been using fluffybutts everyday for almost a year. Julia goes above and beyond the call of duty, always rearranging her schedule to accommodate our needs and taking care and checking on penny when she is sick. She also has done such wonders in socializing our dog! Half of the battle of getting a puppy is introducing them to new dogs and people and she gets tons of interactions everyday with Julia. My daily updates from fluffybutts are the highlight of my day! I get to see the cutest pictures of penny with new friends and penny has the time of her life and comes home very tired! I wouldn't trust anyone else besides julia to take care of penny, she knows her and treats her just like family which makes traveling and going to work so much easier when I know she's being spoiled. Thank you so much fluffybutts for all that you do!

Julia at Fluffybutts Belltown has been a great addition to our family. Our dogs consider her family, and so do we. They are always so happy to see her.Since she has been walking our two dogs, almost daily, they have become so much more calm and well behaved. She effortlessly helps make our lives easier. We also take advantage of Fluffybutts overnight stays. Everything is perfect when we get home - Julia takes care of everything! Even when you cannot always plan ahead, Fluffybutts has been great with last-minute walk needs. This is the best dog care service ever! I strongly recommend Fluffybutts Belltown and Julia Simon.
Randi C. with Wynston
So glad I found Julia to take care of my dog Wynston when I’m not home. She has been a life saver. The best part of the day is receiving photos and stories of her visit with Wynston. She’s super flexible with schedule changes (I’ve had a lot) and there is convenient portal scheduling. She does in-home stays for when you’re traveling as well. I haven’t taken advantage of that service yet but definitely plan to. Julia has also give me some great behavior advice for some of Wynston’s quirks. I pray she never decides to move away from the Belltown area. I don’t know what I will do!
Phil P. with Loki
We've had many dog walkers over the years, and Fluffybutts is our favorite, by far! Every day, our walker Julia sends us several photos of our happy pup Loki enjoying her walk, along with a thoughtful, funny anecdote - these updates make our day! She always gives Loki extra love and even brushes her. Their online system makes booking or updating our schedule easy. Options like Yappy Hour let us enjoy some fun after work, without having to rush home. The overnight boarding is also super convenient - Julia already has our key and knows our pup’s routine, so it’s one less thing to stress when we’re about to leave town.

Where to start in my enthusiastic endorsement of Julia Simon of Fluffybutts Belltown?
Julia has brought so much joy to our lives as she has taken wonderful care of our dogs. We have a rescue that we suspect had been abused, we had a tough time getting him to truly trust us despite our showering him with love and affection and the companionship of our other awesome dog. Julia started walking him a year ago and things completely turned around. He adored her and then came to trust us as an extension. Both of our dogs love her and she genuinely loves them; it comes across in the photos she sends and her attentive summaries of the day’s walk/events. While she is dependable and efficient and provides a great service, she also is one of the most thoughtful people I know. We are thrilled to have our dogs in her care and highly recommend her. We have had dog walkers and dog sitters for over 20 years as we have always lived downtown; we have never had this level of affection and commitment; we plan to be clients (and friends) for life.
Babs P. with Loki
We have had many dog walkers and dog sitters, in multiple cities and across multiple states, since our chocolate lab Loki joined the family ten years ago. Julia at Fluffybutts Belltown is by far the best dog walker and dog sitter we have ever had. She is a true animal lover who considers your pet a part of her family. She is professional, trustworthy, caring and beyond patient (Loki is very stubborn!). I look forward to receiving Loki’s pupdate each afternoon. Not only does Julia write the sweetest narrative, she also sends the cutest pictures that capture Loki’s personality. I wholeheartedly recommend Julia as a dog walker and dog sitter (and Loki does too!). On top of her obvious love for animals, Julia is professional, reliable and trustworthy. I love reading the update and looking at the pictures from Loki’s walk each day. Julia’s updates are awesome and hilarious- she captures Loki’s quirky personality so well! Julia comes with my highest recommendation- I don’t know what we would do without her!
Kjerstin W. with Trager and Mose
I can't say enough kind things about Julia. You can tell she truly loves animals, and our cats connected with her right away, even the one who is normally a little more skiddish with strangers. Her rate is slightly higher than some other petsitters we've used in the past, but she's definitely worth it! One of our cats receives medication so it's important to us that the petsitter visits in a certain time frame, and surprisingly that has been an issue with past people, but Julia totally understood my overprotective cat mom tendencies and was timely with her visits and gave detailed reports! We experienced a water leak just before leaving for vacation over the holidays and she was kind enough to check and make sure the leak didn't spring again while we were gone. I can't imagine ever having anyone other than Julia watch our pets in the future! Her online system is also great for payments and making sure she has all the info she needs to give great care to your furkids.
Shelly R. with Albert
My Shih Tzu Albert loves his walks and play time with Julia and he has also stayed overnight with her. The online scheduling is very convenient, and I like receiving pictures and communicating with Julia through the portal. Albert’s walking schedule is irregular, and I really like that Julia is flexible with how often I schedule walks because many other dog walkers require a weekly or monthly commitment. Julia is very responsible and reliable, and I always have peace of mind that Albert is in safe hands when he is with her. We are very happy to have found Julia!
Lindsay C. with Blaze
Fluffybutts has been outstanding under Julia's new ownership. She has been walking our dog Blaze ever since she was a puppy and has been someone we have been able to reliable upon consistently. Our dog is very energetic, and Julia does an amazing job interacting with her and reinforcing our training needs--Blaze adores her. We highly recommend Julia and Fluffybutts for anyone looking for dog walking.
Gwynneth L. with Max and Rey
Julia did an excellent job taking care of our two cats over the Christmas holidays. She sent updates with pictures of the cats every day, and the cats were clearly happy and well taken care of when we got home. She did lots of helpful things around the house like taking in packages and mail, and leaving different lights on each day so that it wouldn't be obvious that we were gone on vacation. It was really reassuring to know that both our pets and our home were well looked after while we were away. I would happily recommend Julia!
Jenny Y. with Gaudi
I can not rave enough about Julia and Fluffybutt’s! I work full time and am also in an intense grad school program and when my fur baby Gaudi got diagnosed with diabetes I had no idea how I was going to be able to manage it. Julia answered all my questions and concerns empathetically as well as very quickly. She offered a very fair price for helping me with his insulin shots when I’m at work. Gaudi and I both love her and highly recommend Fluffybutt’s services!
If you are looking for someone who truly cares about your pet to take care of them in your absence, look no further. It was clear that in the short time Fluffybutts and Miss Cleo spent together that they had an instant bond. What more could you ask for??? I booked them to feed and exercise Miss Cleo when I was out of town for work and I felt very comfortable right from the get-go.
Fluffybutts was fantastic watching Lucy while I was away. I received daily photos and updates while I was away. This set my mind at ease so I could enjoy my trip worry-free. I will definitely call upon Fluffybutts in the future knowing that Lucy was happy and in good hands.
Great experience with Fluffybutts! I've had them for 2 days so far and my dogs already love them. Glad to have them around to walk my dogs daily! They know a lot about training which is great for me!
Fluffybutts was great! We had to book them last minute due to one of our dogs getting sick and they responded quickly and were available to watch them right away. Our dogs loved it and they loved our dogs. We will use Fluffybutts again!!
Fluffybutts were so sweet to our puppy, Norm. They took him out on several walks per day and sent updates and pictures to me periodically. He looked like he was exhausted. They also walk several dogs each day so Norm had a lot of opportunities to play with other dogs. I'm very grateful for their generosity and hospitality for Norm!
I can't say enough great things about Fluffybutts. They cared for my dog like she was their own. She is a nervous dog and they handled her with confidence and calm. She quickly became comfortable and so did I. Leaving my dog with Fluffybutts was more like leaving her with a family member for the weekend. They are real dog lovers, very responsible, kind and patient. I highly recommend Fluffybutts!
Fluffybutts are true animal lovers!! I hate putting my babies in kennels because I travel for work often but I hated how they sad they were when I would pick them up :( so I started having Fluffybutts care for my babies and it's the difference in their moods is a amazing!! Its great now I never have to worry about my babies cause I know they're going to get royal treatment with Fluffybutts.
Barbara E. with Cody
I feel so incredibly lucky to have found Fluffybutts. I was nervous leaving my dog and they were great, constantly sending pictures and texts on how Cody was doing.
Fluffybutts is fantastic! It's such a relief to know that my little baby is being well cared for while I'm working long hours or out of town.
Donna S. with Zelda
Fluffybutts are fantastic! You can tell from the moment you meet them that they really love dogs (and cats!) and put a lot of thought and care into what they do! My dog Zelda had a great time with them and made lots of new human and canine friends. I'd definitely recommend them!
When we picked up our dog Benji, he was happy and healthy, which we couldn't have asked for anything more. They provided updates daily on Benji during his stay. They were very nice and responsive in communication about the stay and the meet and greet.
Fluffybutts were wonderful sitters to our two Pugs. They walked them all over the city. Our big guy Ernie even lost a little weight which is a plus! Will will book with Fluffybutts again for sure!
Fluffybutts was an amazing sitter for our dogs, one of which is a special needs senior. They are very caring and thorough and did a great job of taking care of our fur babies! We needed a sitter on short notice and Fluffybutts was able to accommodate us. They promptly scheduled a meet and greet and thoroughly walked through our instructions and house. They provided a constant stream of updates and did a great job.
Fantastic care for my dogs. They came back happy and healthy. I will happily use Fluffybutts in the future for all my care requirements.
