About Bob and Susan

60 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As pet owners for over 60 years, we are the perfect "fill in parents" for your wonderful fuzzy family member. My wife Susan was raised on a ranch in Wyoming and her life was full of horses, cows, sheep, pigs, you name it, every farm animal there was.

I have had dogs my entire life and fell in love with Rhodesian Ridgeback's over 30 years ago as well as having had several smaller breed dogs as well. We almost always have had 2 dogs, but right now we just have our one dog Abby, a 12 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback (who is a mellow & loving senior lady that loves other dogs and animals,). We have had dogs from 6 pounds to 106 pounds in our lives for over 60 years and love being with animals.

We have a large home in a quiet tree filled subdivision, the perfect place dogs to go for long walks and filled adventures while their parents take a break away. The dogs we watch will never be left unattended or outside without being supervised and well protected. Your pet will be loved, cuddled and spoiled by two dog loving people. Their time with us will be spent as part of our family, not kept in crates but part of our household, from walks to tons of loving.

If your dog has it's own bed or toys, or special treats, please feel free to bring them with you as well as their regular food, bowls and any medications they may need.

Unlike some hosts we only take 5 dogs in at a time. We do not have any cats in the house and our dog Abby is wonderful with all size dogs. We require a meet and greet prior to accepting a reservation so that all parties, you, your pet, our Abby and of course us as hosts know the dog is a good fit in our environment.

We know how hard it is to be away from your 4 legged family members, so we will send you pictures throughout their stay so you know what they are up to and how much they miss you but most of all to show you how much fun they are having!

Bob and Susan are exactly what we were looking for in a pet sitter. They go above and beyond to make your fur baby comfortable. Our little Cotton has struggled with separation anxiety, but not at Bob and Susan's! They give her so much love and attention; she doesn't have time to think about 'Mommy.' I feel so good about finding someone I can trust to watch Cotton and we can go away and enjoy ourselves and not have to worry about anything.

Bob and Susan were absolutely wonderful pet sitters for our 2 chihuahas.They treated them as if they were their own. My dogs felt right at home and were very happy there. I highly recommend them and will use them again in the future for sure.

This review is long overdue - we were nervous as we rarely leave our pup anywhere but our concerns were soothed by the Meet and Greet, and Bob's obvious concern to be sure Buddy Bear's visit went well. Abby, Bob's Ridgeback, is just the sweetest dog obvious concern to be sure Buddy Bear's visit went well. Abby, Bob's Ridgeback, is just the sweetest dog and I think helped Buddy be comfortable in a new setting. When we picked up Buddy he was calm and happy. We have already booked another stay and look forward to others!

Bob and Susan are excellent!! Very caring and knowledgeable dog owners. I highly recommend them if you ever need to leave your fur babies. They are in very responsible and capable hands.
Bob and Susan are fantastic!! They were great with Murphy! They are very warm and friendly. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone and plan on having them watch Murphy in the future. They were great with updates on our pup. I can't thank having them watch Murphy in the future. They were great with updates on our pup. I can't thank them enough!
