About Susan

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home. I have been a pet owner all my life. I love the great outdoors. I love dogs! I live in a single family home, nice quiet neighborhood. I have lived in my home for over twenty years. I have beds, treats. Cage-free, or kennel if you use one. I provide daily walks, play time, fetch. I look forward to meeting you, and your pet. Please remember to bring over the following:

Enough of your pet's brand of food for the length of the vacay, plus at least 2 days' additional food.

Any medications and or vitamins.

Leash and collar/harness with ID tags.

A copy of their current rabies vaccination certificate.

Two favorite toys; a blanket, bed or shirt that smells like home.

Their crate, if you use one.

We had a great experience with Susan and her family. Everything worked out great, Koda came back happy and seemed to have had a great time.
Susan was awesome. Very responsive, and Reuben had a great time. Very dog friendly house.
If you would like to spend over $80 dollars at Petco and more for your dog to visit the vet due to flea infestation and subsequent allergy, please use her. If there were negative stars I would use those. Please BEWARE. When I texted her to arrange a time to pick up my 14 year old dog from her, she casually mentioned she had a flea issue. I had to throw away all of my dogs belongings as well as go to the nearest Petco to buy all new things and medication. She had over 100 fleas on her from being with her for 5 days. No explanation just a "these things happen". Actually no, they don't if you keep your house clean and your dogs in good health. DISCUSTING. I have picture and video proof.
Susan and her family were great! She watched our 7 month old pup with her for almost two weeks over the Christmas and New Year holidays. Susan sent frquent updates and was very quick to respond to any messages we sent during the stay. She even went above and beyond by giving our pup a bath so he came home fresh and clean! Highly recommend Susan!
Susan was great! Murphy stayed with her for almost two weeks and he was a very happy puppy when we picked him up. Susan always answered my questions very quickly and sent updates. I will definitely use Susan again!
On very short notice, Susan agreed to take our two dogs for the weekend. From the time we first met her to drop off the dogs to the time we picked them up, it was clear they were in very good hands. They had a wonderful time and we definitely be using her again soon!
Great people and a great experience!
Susan is wonderful, Belle seems to have a good stay. Susan was also very accommodating with a last minute request we had and we were very thankful!
Our dog just stayed with Susan for a week. She must have had a great time because she is all tired out. :o) While away we received pictures twice from Susan showing us what our dog had been up to. It was a nice touch to get those updates. This is probably the third time we have use Susan's services. We have been very impressed with her professionalism, knowledge of dog care, and flexibility.
A month is a long time, but I knew Oliver was in good hands. He had obviously been well cared for and enjoyed his vacay.
We will use her again!
Susan was a wonderful host for our lab, Elsie. I could tell she felt very comfortable there and was treated like part of the family!
Always comfortable leaving my dog with Susan. My dog, Mollie, gets plenty of attention and exercise.
Susan took great care of Shadow while we were out of the country. He greeted me with tail wagging and was happy and most importantly well taken care of. Susan sent me pics of walking Shadow and that was a pleasant surprise. Susan was quick to respond to my initial request and allowed me to visit before Shadow was dropped off. I would highly recommend Susan to any dog owner and friend. Shadow says see you soon...
Susan and her family obviously enjoy caring for their guests. They provide a safe and fun environment. I felt Oliver enjoyed his stay with them and I will feel quite comfortable leaving him again.
Susan was great. She took my reservation at short notice after my other boarder fell through. She sent me photos of my pup by her Christmas tree, which was so meaningful to me. I really feel like my pup got lots of love during her stay. The only drawback is that she was pretty muddy at pick up and stank up the car. That freeze-thaw weather causes a mess!
Susan and her family are great!! My two dogs Gigi and Rex stayed with them for three days and Gigi even didn't want to go back home. This was the second time for Gigi vacationing at Susan's house. They certainly had a great time there and we will be back as needed.
My dog Mollie gets lots of love at Susan's.
My dog loves staying at Susan's!
Susan took great care of my dog Mollie. She was welcomed into her home by all of Susan's family. I will definitely have Mollie stay again!
Susan has a really happy, dog-friendly home. I could tell right away during the visit that Susan and her family would take great care of our dog while we were away. When I dropped him off and he ran happily into Susan's house and didn't look back. Also, when I picked him up he was calm and happy - unlike how he acts when we pick him up from a conventional boarding kennel. I will definitely try to board our dog at Susan's house every time we're looking to go out of town.
Leila had an awesome time with Susan, her family and her dogs! Leila now has a second home.
Susan was wonderful!! She was very flexible with us, especially since our flight home was delayed 2 hours, and Finn came home very happy!
Susan and her family took great care of my little Gigi for three days. We will be back as needed.
Our Beagle "Buddy" had a great time for the 7 days he stayed with Susan. He was health and happy when we picked him up and was a bit depressed for a few days afterwards because he missed the other dogs. A sure sign of a good boarding!
Love Susan and her family. They watched my little dog Zoe twice now. My girl always has a ball and was super excited when i dropped her off the second time. I even got photos of how much fun she was having. Will definitely be using Susan's services again!
Susan was very easy to work with and our dog seemed to really enjoy her time there. The frequent updates were a nice touch. We would definitely consider using Susan's services again.
Susan was a great host for my dog. My dog was as happy as could be when I picked him up. Susan has a very pet friendly neighborhood, home and back yard. I would recommend Susan anytime!
Susan and her family take great care of my pups! This was our second vacay with her and she responded so quickly and was able to watch my two dogs over the holiday! I'm am very happy with the love Susan brings to my dogs and I'll be sure to bring my babies there again!
Coco had a great time and we were very happy knowing she was being cared for while we were away! Definitely will be a repeat customer!
Susan is wonderful. Very friendly and can tell she really loves the pets she cares for. She took great care of our 7 month old pup and I highly recommend her for your pets care.
Susan C. was very welcoming on our arrival and we felt assured that Willie would be well cared for. We left him knowing he was in good hands and he certainly didn't mind being left behind with a Susan and her engaged family.
Susan was a great host to my pup Clover, despite my last-minute booking. I came back to a very happy dog, so thank you, Susan!
Bungee comes back happy every time. AND they take such good care of her and her things. Her blanket and favorite toy came back freshly washed too. She was showing them off all night!
We left Troy with Susan for 10 days. At the meet-n-greet Susan introduced Troy to all the kids and Peppy to see if they all would get along well.

On Troy's stay over at Susan, she updated some pictures of Troy to give us some feedback.

When we picked him up, he seemed really happy and comfortable there. Troy is "the only child", and he loves attention. So, Susan's home was the perfect environment for him, since he had the kids and other dog to play with. We trust he had a good time and they took good care of him.

Susan will always be our first choice for sleep overs now :)
Super flexible and great host.
Susan and her family were very attentive to Brooklyn. They took him on many walks around her neighborhood. She also sent me updates.
Little Bear had a wonderful time with Susan's family! He was well-fed, walked and played with regularly, and best of all - he was treated like one of the family. We started with a Meet n Greet and knew right away that it was a good fit for our Bear. We will definitely use Susan and her family again for our future vacation needs!
