About Susan

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If you're anything like me your dogs are furry family not just pets. I hated the thought of leaving them in a hard floored kennel while I was away from home. Not to mention they were alone and the cost was ridiculous. Mine are used to constant companionship and couches. Face one loves our pets like us. Let me help you have the piece of mind that they're safe and loved while you are away.

Drop off your pet 7 days a week between 8AM and 5PM. Earlier/later drop off times can be arranged. Additional fees may apply.

Pick ups need to be made by 4PM on the last day of the reservation or late check out fees or an additional day charge will apply.

As always Susan is THE BEST. She takes phenomenal care of my baby and sends plenty of updates and photos. I feel absolutely at ease when he is with her and Caleb is comfortable and at home with her family. It is pretty awesome to have someone I trust to care for Caleb when I am out of town. It makes traveling much more relaxing when I know he's in great hands. Thank you Susan!
Excellent Sitter!
My dog loved his extended stay and got along well with her dogs. Susan was accommodating for his stay and our vaca schedule and was thoroughly spoiled. Great sitter we will use in the future.
Susan was great! She updated us with photos of our dog Gus throughout the stay and Gus clearly had a great stay. I will use Susan again the next time we need a DogVacay.
This was my first time having anyone other than family keep my baby. Susan was absolutely awesome and took excellent care of my baby...just like he was her own. She kept me updated with pictures and videos and made me feel completely comfortable that he was safe and happy. Caleb was a happy boy when I picked him up. Caleb will definitely be back to see her soon!
Susan did an awesome job with my pup and I'll be using her for my dog again.
First time doing DogVacay and we were kinda of skeptical... We haven't had much luck relying on friends to dogsit..Susan was great!!! Luna had such a wonderful time there!! The whole family was so receptive to our spoiled little girl!! We got updates every single day with the most sweetest pictures. Very accommodating for a last minute reservation.... Extremely responsible with my dog medication... Would highly recommend to anyone!!
Susan has been my sitter of choice for awhile now. Zoey loves seeing her and I know I can always count on her to take good care of her while I'm gone. I highly recommend her to anyone considering watching their dog.
Susan is the BEST paws down!!!! The way that she takes care of my twins is remarkable. I love the fact that she loves what she is doing and goes above and beyond with the business. My dogs look forward to seeing her and her dogs!
I was so impressed with Susan the first time I came back. I was just as happy with her and how she treated my dogs as I was the first time. Anyone who wants to have the total peace of mind that their dog is in good hands should definitely being him or her to Susan.
Perhaps the most at ease I have ever felt about leaving my dogs behind in years. Susan was wonderful and warm. She clearly loves dogs. She kept me updated all the time. It was so obvious that my dogs felt at home and loved where they were. To come pick them up and to see that they were not anxious to leave was very rewarding. Susan is always my 1st choice.
She was super friendly and sent me pictures and text updates the whole time she was there! Ki wasn't even afraid of her husband, which is relieving, because most men set her on edge. I will be calling on her again next time I have to leave town without Kibeth. Susan was great!
Previously when we needed someone to care for our spoiled doodle we had placed her in a more traditional boarding place. While she was well cared for, we felt that she didn't get much personal attention like she was used to. Sue took Izzy in and treated her as one of her own. She even took time and effort with our finicky eater to make sure she ate. And apologies to Sue's husband for crowding his sleeping space! We will definitely be regular repeat customers for Sue!
This was Lola's 3rd Vacay with Susan and her family. As always she was very excited when we drove in the driveway! Lola gets lots of love and attention all throughout her stay and we get lots of pictures and updates! This time Susan went above and beyond for us by going to the pharmacy to pick up Lola's medication so she wouldn't have to wait the extra day until we got home to start it. We feel so lucky to have found Susan. She loves and cares for Lola like she was her own!
Sue is absolutely the best! This was Lola's 2nd vacay with her and she was again spoiled beyond words! We are so happy that we found such a great family to take care of Lola when we are away! Sue is also very accommodating and worked with us with our drop off and pick up times. She even offered to pick her up since we were on a tight schedule. We will definitely be booking with Sue again!
Susan is an excellent host! She is extremely accommodating and treats Lola like one of her own dogs. Susan updates me several times during the day with text messages and pictures. Lola is either on the couch with her or sharing the bed with her daughter. I am very thankful to have found Susan!
Susan is great! She lets Zoey stay in her own bedroom where she is use to staying while I go to work so it makes her feel like she is right at home!
Susan is great. I feel very comfortable knowing that she is taking care of Zoey. Always dependable and available.
This was my first experience with DogVacay, and I am so thankful for Susan. With a wedding coming up that we had to travel to, we were in a bit of a scramble to find care for Andy after an unnamed boyfriend dropped the ball. She was quick to respond, and the process was so easy. Andy has had anxiety issues in the past when we left him in the care of friends, so I was pretty worried. Susan put all those worries to rest with her warm welcome. Andy took to her immediately and I felt at ease leaving him. She sent us some picture updates over his stay which was awesome. Andy was a happy dog when we picked him up, and now I know we have someone we can trust to keep him in the future!

Also, another part of my experience - the help from DogVacay. They emailed me to check up on finding a reservation, they picked out hosts for me that would fit my needs, and even emailed a message that I wrote to all of them for me, since I was a bit tied up at work. Five stars all around.
Sue was excellent! She sent pictures and updates throughout Kings stay. He had a ball and was tuckered out from his time playing at her house! I was extremely pleased with how she made us so comfortable leaving King with her. Thanks Sue!!
Susan is always great with Zoey and you could see that Zoey really likes her. I always feel comfortable knowing that I have a caring and dependable sitter when I go away.
Susan was the absolute best! Parker was a happy camper and well loved while on vacay with Susan. Susan opened up her home and heart to my baby and I couldn't have made a better choice. susan's place is now Parker's second home :-)
We were so nervous about leaving our dog baby with someone. We have never boarded him and he usually stays with family while we travel.

Leaving our Petey with Susan was one of the best things we could have done. She loved him and treats him like he is her own.

We could not ask for a better person to care for our dog. More importantly he feels right at home with Susan and her family.
Susan was great in helping me with a last minute request to watch Zoey. She is helpful and dependable.

My dogs had a great time at Susan's. I'm pretty sure one of them was questioning if she even wanted to come home. Susan sent photo updates throughout the vacay, and I knew they were well taken care of. Both dogs were tuckered out from playing and all the attention they got. I will definitely call on Susan again for boarding in the future.
