About Susan

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
PLEASE Take a Minute to read my entire profile!!!!!!!! One spot is guaranteed for regular clients so check on availability.

I love dogs!! I have experience with dog rescue, dog boarding facilities, and previous work as a vet tech. My passion is my dog! Both my husband and I are dog lovers and experienced with special needs dogs.

please do not ask to pick up your pup everyday. we are not a kennel !!!
****I use professional grooming products and dryers for my bathing services. Request a bath with your stay! Nail trim and ears cleaned included.*********

Drop off times are accepted after 9 am and pick up before 6pm.
My rate for large breed dogs is $45.00 per night, and $75.00 per night for any pup over 80 lbs

Meet and greets are required with large breed dogs, and I do not take large dogs 3 years or under or over 60 lbs. Dogs must be be leash trained. .I do not accept unaltered dogs, dogs with separation anxiety, destructive behavior , not housebroken, excessive barker, and dogs that cannot walk politely on a leash. Fenced yards are not allowed in any gated community on Hilton Head.

I live in Hickory Forest in Hilton Head Plantation on a cul de sac. I do walk dogs up to 4 miles per day dependent on age and that walk includes a stroll on the beach 1/4 mile from my home.

When I picked up my dog, a 14.5 y/o mini poodle who is vision and hearing impaired and asked how it went, Susan told me he was "the worst dog ever." She told me that she is clear on her website that she doesn't take dogs with separation anxiety. She listed the dog's numerous behaviors that negatively impacted her home and activities the 9 days the dog was with her. Susan told me that the person with whom I board my dog in another state, who also advertises their services on a national website, "is lying to me" that my dog is not a problem and is a welcome guest. Susan told me the person "has figured out a way to deal with him...probably has a fenced yard and dumps him there all day." She concluded with the advice that the dog never be boarded again but that I should "hire someone to come in several times a day and walk him so he could stay in his own surroundings where he is comfortable."

Our first experience with Susan and DogVacay was very good. We're very glad we tried this "Uber-like" vacation for dogs! Our pup came out of Susan's house smiling, happy and clean so we feel we can assume he had a very good time!
LILO our Bichon Friese had a great stay with Susan. In the past she has only stayed at one Boarding place and I was concerned about how she would do. It was evident from the beginning that she was extremely happy and Lilo knew she was in good hands. I had read all of Susan's reviews and liked the fact that she had many repeat customers. I will definitely board with her again. She was also very calm as I was flustered with too many details of a family reunion. She accommodated my schedule to which I was very grateful. LILO is 13 and Susan was perfect to take care of her meds. Many thanks to Susan.
