About Susan

29 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, my name is Susan and my husband and I have owned dogs for almost 30 years. We recently had to say goodbye to our sweet 16 year old black lab, Sadie, who we rescued at age 2. Since we weren't ready for our next "forever dog," we started fostering dogs through the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF). We care for the ARF dogs until they are ready to be adopted into their forever homes. We also foster ARF dogs for the Pets For Veterans program, helping with socialization and separation issues prior to them being placed with a Veteran.

We have a large yard as well as a great walking neighborhood which is very close to the Iron Horse and Conta Costa Canal trails and Walden Park. We are happy to walk your dogs 1-2 times a day as well as play with them in our backyard. If they enjoy swimming, they are welcome to use our pool in the summer months.

Our two adult children, ages 19 and 23, also live with us so there's always plenty of love and attention available for your wonderful dog. We will welcome your dog and offer them the comfort and love that they deserve.

We look forward to meeting you and your four-legged family member.

Susan loves dogs, all pets really, but I know there's a special spot in her heart for dogs. She has had her own dogs, of course, but as of late she's been fostering homeless dogs for her local animal shelter. She is patient and loving and kind with her furry friends and always goes out of her way to make them feel relaxed and at home. I would absolutely recommend Susan as a very experienced and trustworthy pet sitter.

Animal lover with a big heart! Susan has been fostering dogs with ARF since her families best friend Sadie (black Lab) passed away. Sadie lived a long happy life and we got to know Susan and her family from daily walks through our neighborhood. It doesn't matter the breed or age, Susan loves them all. In just a few weeks I've seen her train dogs in simple commands. She has experience with animals with disabilities and animals who need special attention. Her energy and professional demeanor make her a great care taker for your little family member. If my family had a dog, I would trust her with him/her as I would my own children.

I watched Susan take exquisite care of her aging labrador in the lab's final years. She attended to her beloved pet's physical needs with patience and kindness, but even more important, she was always sensitive to the dog's emotions and level of contentment. She gave her dignity in her aging process. Since then, Susan has fostered puppies and older dogs. She takes such pleasure in getting to know each dog and addressing its specific needs. She shares photos and stories of them as if they are her own pets. She is very knowledgeable about training methods, medications, exercise needs, and other aspects of ensuring a healthy, happy dog. A pet owner can feel confident that Susan will take excellent care of his or her pet.
