About Susannah

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! We're the Kelly Family!

This is a warm, family-friendly environment in West Village where classical music is always playing. I am animating on my computer while mother and brother all work at home composing music and painting.

We currently have a friend's dog staying with us on a regular basis, which means we are only able to accommodate a limit of two additional dogs. We prefer to keep the number low so that we can continue to provide one-on-one attention to our Guests!

Very Important:
We can only accommodate dogs who are 30 pounds or less and are 2 years or older.Spayed or neutered, all vaccinations up to date/current.

We are not comfortable boarding pit bulls/pit bull mixes even though they are wonderful dogs and deserving of love.

We are not trained to administer injections or board dogs with extreme medical conditions. We will adhere to special dietary needs and in some cases give out oral medication. Please ask and we will be happy to work with you on this.

Your pup can be slightly neurotic, even quirky, as long as they follow commands and are leash trained. Please, no issues with aggression. Our neighborhood is densely populated with other dogs therefore an ability to do well on the street walked or taken to parks is strongly advised.

We are not trainers: we just make sure your dog is safe, well loved, and treated with great care and respect. We are very big on giving up our bed, providing hugs and infinite affection.

So that your dog vacation goes smoothly and happily, we ask that there is full disclosure on your part and ahead of time regarding any behavior or health issues with your dog. This will happen with a Meet-n-Greet either by phone/email then followed up in person in our home.

We will only host dogs that are fully housebroken, even-tempered and looking to find comfort, routine and a predictable schedule in our clean and orderly home. As our family is made up of mature adults and one elderly we are best at offering our home to just the right match.

Thank you for this consideration,
Best wishes from
The Entire Kelly Family

Susannah takes care of all our guest dogs as if they are members of our own family. We have the hairy bedcovers to prove how much she spoils them. She really loves every dog she takes care of.

Susannah has been so devoted to her job as a DogVacay host and loves every dog that comes into our home.
Without exception,she will give up her time,her lap and her sleep area just to make them feel safe and special.
I watch her go into withdrawal when they are returned to their parents; saying how much the house is empty without them in it.

Susannah has been my go to dogvacay host for my dog, Bella for almost 3 years now. Bella absolutely loves Susannah and her family and can't wait for her next dogvacay. Susannah is friendly, courteous, flexible and treats my fur kid like her own! Can't recommend her highly enough :) :)

Susannah and her family are amazing hosts - lots of love in their house, perfect for my snuggly Fran! Response times were quick and I was always provided updates and photos. I didn't worry once while I was away - I knew Fran was in excellent hands!
Susannah and family took great care of freckles and treated her like their own pet. We are very appreciative. Thank you!!!
Thank you Susannah and family for taking such good care of our 2 mature aged poodles. We loved the regular photo email updates. Milo and Truffle had a great time with their Dog Vacay family. They where made to feel safe and loved in their Vacay home. I would highly recommend Susannah and her family if you are looking for quality care for your dog/dogs.
