About sue

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to our home. We have been fostering and caring for dogs for over 10 years. Our huge back yard is great for running, sniffing, patrolling, playing and chasing. Someone is home all day here to make sure that all of our visitors get the care and attention they need and deserve. Daily photos and updates are easy to send so we may send more than one per day if fun things are happening. You can enjoy your vacay knowing that your four legged family members are in good hands. Why not schedule a meet and greet to see why all of our reviews are 5 star and so many of our guests bring their dogs here vacay after vacay.

This was our first experience with DogVacay and it was just perfect. We did a meet and greet with Sue at a convenient time for both of us. Sue was warm, friendly and knowledgeable. Her house and yard were set up beautifully for dog-sitting. We have a wire fox terrier who can be on the unfriendly and rambunctious side and Sue handled her with love and limits. Lacey stayed with them for a week and Sue sent daily pictures and updates, which I looked forward to getting. We couldn't be happier and can't wait to go away again so Lacey could go visit her friends.

Sue was great and Luke really enjoyed his stay! Would come back again!!
We've left our girls with Sue twice now and we would definitely do so again. Her actual availability has matched what we see on the schedule which is very helpful when trying to schedule. Drop off and pickup is quick and easy. We also love that she has a fenced yard for the dogs to play in. Everyone seems happy and healthy when we get home!

Jammer loves being at Sue's. It is such a friendly environment. Like home away from home!
Very personable and great with Sadie!!
Sue S and her husband were great and took excellent care of my 2 dogs! What's best is they really seemed to enjoy my dogs and that makes me happy. I loved getting the updates with photos each day, made leaving them a little easier.
Sue and her husband were great. They have a really big yard that was fun for my dog to stretch her legs and have fun with other dogs.
Sue was very accommodating with a last minute request and was very flexible. Our Chester came home with bite marks both times he stayed there so we were a bit concerned about that but otherwise he seemed very happy.
Sue was awesome! Our 2 dogs stayed with Sue for 6 nights over the 4th of July weekend. I was worried about Maggie, our recently adopted rescue. We had discovered a few days earlier that Maggie was terrified of fireworks. Sue handled it beautifully and kept me posted on how she was doing. I had taken both dogs to meet Sue beforehand and noticed then and when I dropped the dogs off that Sue really understands what can be stressful for them and how to handle it. Both of my furry kids had a great time and seemed very happy.

Our dog's stay with Sue was awesome! She sent plenty of updates and pics while we were away. He clearly had plenty of exercise and was in great spirits when we brought him home. We definitely felt comfortable that he was being cared for well.
This was a great experience for us and for our dog!!

Sue was fantastic! This was Rosie's first time staying with anyone else and Sue made sure she felt right at home with the other dogs. Rosie had lots of fun and the whole process worked like a charm.
My pup who is normally a lovable dog who loves everyone and since the one night stay has been afraid of everything and rarely has his tail down like he did something wrong but has been putting it down a lot this week since being home. I am not sure what transpired in the one night vacay but my pup hasn't been the same since and I am not real convinced to use this site again. I love my pup unbelievably and I would hope when I leave him somewhere he would get the same love. I was really set back when I showed up to pick him up and all his belongings were on the front porch, left me with the feeling they wanted him gone as fast as possible. I would think people watching a dog would understand they are going to miss their owner and compensate for that but I do not feel that happened. I also noticed major grass stains on his man part which really bothered me. I am trying to get my pup back to normal which usually after I have been gone takes a day, but here we are 4 days later and still not his normal self. Would not recommend!!!

When I wrote to Sue about sitting for my Greyhound Maya, she was very forthcoming about how she does things giving me peace of mind about leaving my dog with her. Unlike some other sitters, there is 24/7 supervision at Sue's which I think is important. The dogs she sits for all seem to get along and her yard is large which is always a big plus!

Everything was great and I'm looking forward to having a regular sitter I can trust with the pups when we have to go out of town!
Sue was fantastic! We felt very comfortable knowing our Toby was with her. Yard was great, other playmates were great and he was well taken care of. The extra time she took with Toby's meet n greet really took our worries about leaving him away. I think he is even better behaved after a visit to Sue! Can't thank her enough or be more pleased with our experience.

Sue was exceptionally sweet. Ozzie is older and doesn't always like everyone. He loved being w Sue.
Sue was so great with my Cairn Terrier, Buddy, and was very accommodating to my schedule. I felt 100% comfortable leaving him with her and received multiple text updates throughout his stay. Will definitely be booking with Sue for my future trips!
We couldn't be happier or more comfortable leaving our dogs with Sue. Layla, our pup gets so much play and attention from not only Sue and her husband but also from the other dogs. Mimi, our senior citizen, gets special care and her choice of furniture to stay away from the active play. We receive pictures every day letting us know what they are up to. We feel very lucky to find a sitter who loves our dogs as much as we do. Would highly recommend!

I had never used Dog Vacay before but thought I would give it a try after my "usual" sitter was not available. Boy, am I glad I did. Sue is an amazing dog-sitter. From the moment you walk in the door of her house, you can feel the affection she has for her four-legged guests. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog, Vince, with her and the resident pups. The daily photos and updates she sent helped eased my mind when I was gone. I will definitely bring my dog to Sue for all of my dog-sitting needs.

We were in a panic to find a place for our 5 yr. old Border/Pyrenees mix since we have never left him for a week before. After reading Sue’s profile on Dog Vacay, we contacted her immediately. She was so accommodating to schedule a meet/greet on such short notice. We knew instantly that she would take good care of Brody. He has some insecurities and doesn’t always get along with other dogs, but she was able to figure him out pretty quick and reassure us that he would be fine. She explained in detail how he would be cared for and answered all of our questions. Sue gives the dogs plenty of indoor space to play and nap and her backyard is big and fenced in which was a big bonus since our dog likes being outside. She even offered Brody the option to sleep in their bedroom since that was what he was used to at home. While we were gone, Sue sent us photos and updates each day, which really helped reassure us that he was doing well. Sue and her husband took very good care of Brody and we would not hesitate to call on her again when we go out of town. I would recommend Sue and Dog Vacay to anyone who wants to board their dog in a loving home.

Once again Sue come to my rescue when I needed to have my dog boarded for the weekend. She is a wonderful host and really knows dogs well. I will always make her my first choice when I need a dog sitter.
Sue is an amazing dog sitter! I was quiet nervous about leaving my dog for so long. She sent me pictures and updates everyday! She even worked on some training skills too. I highly recommend her!
I'm so happy I have found someone who will take care of my dog as well as I do. Sue is awesome!

Sue send me notes & pictures everyday so I know how my dog did (this is very nice and helpful). She is flexible and able to accommodate schedule changes if requested!
She also responds quickly to any questions or requests. Highly recommended - both for you and your dogs.

Excellent! Loving care for our Charlie.
Sue was very accommodating and friendly with our puppy Ginger. Ginger is a full blown puppy with bounds of energy, and when we picked her up, she slept for a couple of days, which is clear that she had a great time! I would highly recommend Sue for your fur babies.

Sue was awesome! Hershey loved her time at Sue's house... Will definitely be using her again!
Thank you Sue for taking such good care of our dog Cooper. I very much appreciated the daily pictures and comments as to how he was getting along. Thank you for the extra sweet care and dog goodies over the Christmas holiday. And thank you also for keeping him an extra day due to our travel conditions. We will gladly be in contact with you again next time we head out of town and need pet care. Cooper had a good time with you and his other dog buddies.

This is my first time trying out Dogvacay. I was a bit worried at first at
the idea because Midoo can be very nervous around stranger dogs. Sue’s
experience with small dogs, especially terriers attracted me – because I
know when tell her about Midoo’s idiosyncrasy and she would understand.
After the initial meet-and-greet, I felt totally comfortable leaving Midoo
with her. Sue patiently introduced Midoo to each of the pups in the house
individually. They magically got along (That don’t happen often for Midoo).
I can see Midoo is calm in the new house and enjoyed her run in the
backyard. The actual vacation went very well. Sue sent pictures almost
everyday and kept me updated on how Midoo is doing. It is obvious that
Midoo is in good hands and enjoyed the stay. Sue is also very accommodating
in every way. My return flight is delayed for 8 hrs and Sue told me that I
can still pick her up at any hour. The whole experience could not be any
smoother. I would not hesitate a second on choosing Sue for the next
vacation.

Very happy with Sue!! I knew my dog Zeus was in good hands!! He came back a very happy dog and Sue was very attentive and texted me updates and pictures which I absolutely loved!!
Sue is warm and welcoming. She took great care of my older dog, giving her quiet time and space for her naps and slower pace. Sue is very accommodating, and helped Maxie to feel comfortable and at ease. We will definitely look to her for any future dog care needs.

This was our first visit with Sue and it couldn't have gone better. Sue sent a picture of my dog Chloe before I even got on the plane to leave. I received a picture daily to show what she was up to while I was away. I think she had a better vacation than I did, plenty of activity at Sue's house to keep her busy. She slept the entire day when I brought her home. Sue is definitely a dog person and I will gladly use her in the future when I go out of town.

Once again, my pups were well taken care of. They came back from their overnight calm and sleepy. Perfect after a long night. Thanks so much!
Sue was great and Bailey appeared to enjoy her stay. She sent daily texts and a photo during Bailey's stay. Will definitely book again.
Sue was so loving and kind to Toby.
Sue could not have been more accommodating and I felt my dogs were safe and loved from the moment we did out first meet and greet. While I was away she sent me daily texts and pictures, telling me what the dogs were doing, eating and how they were adjusting to her, her husband and their surroundings. There is a deck and an enormous yard for the dogs to play, and a large home in which the dogs are free to roam. She was quite comfortable giving one of my dogs medications. I am sure my dogs will be repeat visitors.

We are very happy with our dog's stay! It was a great environment and Sue kept us updated over the week.
My dogs felt right at home with Sue's terriers. They are calm and welcoming. The dogs have lots of room to run in the large back yard and spacious home. Sue and her husband seem very caring and loving with dogs. I highly recommend having your dog vacation with them.

Very easy to set up the reservation and a meet & greet
Sue and her husband instantly welcomed my dog Henry. The welcome committee included a pack of very sweet Cairn Terriers, much to Henry's delight. He was a little nervous when I left, so they took him on a car ride which seemed to calm his anxieties. By the time I came to get him, he was right at home and I could tell that he had made good friends with the dogs and the humans--thanks, Sue!

This was our first time using DogVacay and we boarded 2 older dogs, age 7 and 10 with Sue. Sue was so great with the dogs and catered to their needs. The boarding was over the 4th of July and she held one dog in a blanket to comfort him from the noise as he was afraid of fireworks..She is a very kind and considerate person who loves dogs. We received daily updates on how they were doing as well as pictures so that was very reassuring.
We would definitely use her services again.

Once again, Lucy had a terrific stay at Sue's with all her doggie friends. Sue is very accommodating and sends great picture updates.
Sue was fantastic!!! Our dog Riley has never come back this relaxed from a kennel experience. Usually he's glued to us and takes him awhile to get back into his normal routine. Not after this stay, he was pretty much back to normal the same day. Thanks Sue Riley will be back!!!

Sue took such great care of our little Pez! She is very kind and loving as well as competent and extremely knowledgeable.
Sue was amazing. She accommodated our dogs last minute. Our dogs loved it there!!
Fluffy was very well taken care of. Sue did a great job in keeping us informed on how Fluffy was doing. Would definitely have Sue take care of Fluffy in the future.
Sue took good care of our dog, Ross, which gave us peace of mind during our vacation. I appreciate her providing updates and pics on a regular basis. I highly recommend her!
Sue was a fantastic host for our little baby. First of all she was very accommodating at our meet and greet. But more importantly, she was extremely flexible with us around the drop-off and pickup time. During our vacation we needed her to extend our dog's stay and she had no concerns whatsoever. She also sent us regular photos and was in constant communication with us the entire time. I felt very comfortable with our dog being in her care and would recommend her to anyone!

This was my dog's first time away from family. She seemed very relaxed and well taken care of by Sue! The everyday photos were especially nice because I saw my dog very comfortable with the other dogs.
Sue was fantastic! She made our timid puppy feel at home and helped us feel comfortable leaving her for the first time.
It was a relief to know that Daisy was well cared for during our trip. Sue sent us daily pictures and updates.

Daisy usually stresses out when we are gone. This trip she to enjoy the other company of the other dogs and her care-giver.

We plan on sending Daisy back to Sue when we travel in May.

Sue was wonderful in every way. She explained in detail the care and attention my dog would receive on his dog vacay. I left my dog with her for 8 days and received photos of my dog enjoying his stay with her and her husband. I realized right away this was by far a better alternative than putting my dog in a regular kennel. Sue did a great job making my dogs stay enjoyable and as stress-free as possible. I will definitely use her services again the next time I need a pet sitter.

Sue was very accommodating and took good care of our dog, Ross. Ross was very happy and had a great time! We won't hesitate to call back.
Sue provided a wonderful home for Lucy while we were away for two weeks. She was an attentive host and her other dogs were lovely companions
We were very impressed with Sue and her caring dog sitting services. She was great to work with, quickly responding to any communication and flexible with her schedule. Very knowledgeable and extensive experience with dogs, especially rescues which always takes a special person. She is a true dog lover and Zoe seemed happy, well cared for, and even a little more spoiled upon her return. We enjoyed getting daily updates and pictures which reassured us Zoe was doing well. I will definitely be using her services again and would highly recommend Sue to others!

Great experience! We will definitely be repeat clients. Sue took excellent care of our two Maltese dogs. We were away for 6 nights. The dogs have a comfortable environment inside and outside. Sue really treated them like they were her own. Sue administered medication daily for one of the dogs. Both were happy and healthy when we returned for them.

Sue welcomed Maya - a 40 lb colie - in her house and made her feel special. She took care of Maya for 13 nights and always updated me on her well being. I fully trust Sue with my dog Maya and will use her again.
