About Susan

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
[Before reading further, please only contact with cat-friendly dogs. If you are unsure, I will require a meet-and-greet.]

I'm a work-from-home professional with loads of flexibility and attention for your dogs, cats, or other critters. I've been a veterinary assistant and animal shelter caregiver/counselor, experienced with medication administration (oral and injected) and care of sick animals.

I provide occasional care in my home for several dogs and cats, including a cat requiring twice-daily insulin injections, and I care for several other dogs and cats in their homes when their humans go away. I have experience with a high-needs dog who has lost use of his back legs and also with a dog who walks with a muzzle.

My home has plenty of green space. While I don't have a fenced yard, I can offer extended on-leash walks around this gorgeous Catskills neighborhood and on the trail in the woods behind my house.

My two cat companions have coexisted peacefully with both dogs and cats. Please only contact with cat-friendly dogs, unless the gig is at your home. If you are unsure, we can plan a meet-and-greet. My 5-year-old son also lives here, so please contact only with kid-friendly animals. He is gentle and kind and never unsupervised with visiting animals.

Susan has cared for my dog Jade for well over a year now. She is responsible, attentive and compassionate. When I am away from home I have peace of mind that Jade is well cared for.

Susan is truly a gift. She is warm, tender, thoughtful and conscientious. I trust Susan implicitly and feel so fortunate to have her as a resource to care for my animal family. My animal children think of Susan as their second mama, which warms my heart.

Susan was so wonderful! It was my first time boarding my dog, Stella, who is a little anxious, and Susan and her lovely family made her feel right at home. She sent me regular updates and I was totally at ease within a few hours of dropping her off. When I picked Stella up she was calm and happy and it really seemed like she had had a nice little vacation too! I fully recommend Susan for anyone looking to board their dog in the area.

Susan was very flexible with pickup and drop off times with my dog Peppermint, she sent photos and updates daily and Peppermint loved spending time with Susan and her family!
Susan was so amazing in every way. Her home was lovely and her family was so sweet. Her knowledge as a previous volunteer at a veterinarian coupled with her compassion and intelligence made this a wonderful experience. I would trust Susan with any pet or child for that matter!

Everything was a delight with Susan and wonderful family! We left our 3-year-old mutt Hunter with Susan while we went to our wedding tasting and the whole experience was perfect. She's got a great space where Hunter was able to run around and play and Susan herself (and her friendly husband and adorable son!) were all very good with him.

After we left, Susan sent us fun selfies with our little pup throughout his visit. When we got back, she even gave us a squeaky tennis ball to keep! We'll definitely be contacting Susan again for all of our dog care needs.
