About Susan

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Just to get off on the right paw, I need to let pet owners know, I have to insist on a Meet N' Greet before I will board your dog. So, please don't book a reservation unless your dog(s) has met my dog, Harper. You will find a place to request a Meet N' Greet on the DogVacay website right below where you would book a reservation. Through experience over the last few years, I have found that Meet N' Greets are essential to having a good experience and avoiding a bad one. I haven't had a bad experience because I do insist on a Meet N' Greet.
I started being a DogVacay host the summer of 2013 and have had the privilege of meeting great dogs and great people.
I am looking for pets who can come to my house and stay for the day or overnight. I prefer the owners deliver and pick up their precious pets. I also now offer Home Visit Services within a 5 mile radius of my home. I live near Comstock Park.
I have a beautiful Lemon Drop Beagle named Harper. She is a great dog! So, any pets who come to my house will need to be compatible with Harper. So far, she seems to get along good with most other dogs, but I have to be careful for everybody's sake.
The pets I have pictured here are my beloved Beagles, Dansen and Lil, who have both passed away. There are also pictures of pets I have taken care of over the years for friends and neighbors, i.e. Hansil, Schultz, Lucy, 'B', Buddy, Sally, Greta and Niina Kat. I also have a few pictures of some of my DogVacay guests, they have all been awesome dogs.
I will treat your pets as though they were my own. If you want to be able to relax while you are away, then pick someone who is responsible. I am that person.
I started being a DogVacay host because I missed my dogs and I also needed to supplement my income because I was working part-time. Now I have Harper, but love being a DogVacay host so much I have decided to continue. It is very rewarding and I have loved every single dog that has come to my home to stay.
Being a DogVacay host gives me a chance to take care of a sweet dog who is missing their family and is lonely. I love the company of animals and I will take great care of yours!

I will never, ever, ever go to a traditional kennel again. I travel for business and this has made my life free of guilt. thank you dogy vacay and Susan!
Susan is the best thing I have ever found. After my mom's passing, i boarded ms. emmy at a kennel because i didn't know about doggy vacay and then i found it - what a godsend! susan is the best! but book early she is busy and very select! which i love! it's like sorority rush for dogs....!
Ms. Emmy loves Susan - so do I! I am so grateful I found DogVacay!
Susan is awesome! Best thing ever to happen to Ms. Emmy! Book early though; she's very busy!
Susan and Harper are the perfect hostesses for our Collie/German Shepherd mix, Andy Panda. We know he gets lots of love and attention, and it's like a vacation for him as well as us. We are at ease when we go away knowing Andy Panda is safe and happy. The photos and videos that Susan sends are a great touch. Pawsome!
Our two dogs had the best time ever at Susan's house. It was the first time we had left our goldendoodle anywhere. Susan sent us photos and videos while we were gone showing them playing and happy. It made our time away all the more enjoyable knowing our dogs were happy and so well cared for. When we came to pick them up, they of course were glad to see us, but then went right back to sit by Susan, their new best friend.
Our dogs came home from Susan's completely exhausted--which means a good time was had by all! Would most definitely book with Susan again.
As always, susan treats mikey and sophie like they are her family! They are happy and well adjusted when they are picked up to go home. I don't know what we would do without Susan!❣❣
Susan and Haper did a wonderful job watching my beloved Bubba. While I was out of town for 3 days he stayed with them. Susan kept me informed how he was doing during his stay with photos and cute sayings. Bubba was well cared for and well loved in my absence. I truly recommend Susan as a sitter.
The best thing Ms. Emmy and I have ever found! I can now take trips, both business and run errands and know Susan will be a second home to my woofie! Thank you for connecting us!
Susan is dedicated to caring for all her clients' dogs. She is terrific and couldn't do a better job!
Jocko was very happy and I am already booked to go see Susan.
Susan is such a wonderful host! She scheduled a meet and greet to make sure our pups were a good fit, told me exactly what to expect, and showed me around her lovely house and yard. I knew my Harper would be in great hands. While we were away, Susan sent daily photos of Harper's activities; what a wonderful way to give us peace of mind. Harper was happy and relaxed when we picked her up. Highest recommendations. Thank you, Susan!!
What an excellent experience for our 14 month old Australian Labradoodle, Sampson Wagmore the First and Last, otherwise known as Sammy. Susan K. is a natural with our canine children. Sammy recognized her immediately as someone kind, fun and a great care taker. He loved playing with her dog, Harper, and Susan's other visitor, Toaster. They played well together, took naps together, etc. We were so happy with Susan's care of our precious little guy. We will not hesitate to ask her to sit for Sammy again. She sent us many pictures of Sammy in his many poses, i.e. napping with the other dogs, cuddling playing and just being a happy camper. Susan provides a wonderful, safe, reliable and fun atmosphere for her doggy guests. What a relief. Thanks, Susan!! Sammy will be back at the next opportunity. :)
We were SO pleased could meet us and consider watching our 14 year old dog with heart problems on short notice. He had only been in doggie care one other time. She was able to evaluate and agreed to watch Bandit for 4 days. She took pictures and sent them to us every day. He was healthy and happy when we picked him and so thankful for the kind, loving care he had received.
Susan is wonderful. Copper can hardly wait to get out if the car when I pull up next to her house. I know he gets super spoiled with her and the pictures are terrific. Also, Susan is incredibly accommodating with our travel.
Susan is the best!
Mikey and sophie only want susan!
Susan is amazing!
Susan is the best! Her home was so inviting for our pup and her dog Harper is a sweetheart. Our pup had a fabulous time and will certainly be vacationing at Susan's home again! It was wonderful to know that our pup was safe and being loved just like at home!

Thank you Susan and Harper!!
We are so happy to have found Susan to watch our dog Juniper! She is an amazing host who genuinely cares about the happiness and well-being of the dogs she watches. She sent us amazing pictures of our doggie while we were gone, a gesture that helped us to travel with ease. Her beagle Harper was very welcoming of new visitors and a great playmate for our dog June!
Susan is such a kind and loving person - we never think twice about leaving our sweet little girl in her care. Buffy always knows when we are close to Susan's house and gets very excited - she can't wait for her little vacation and snuggles. Lucky pup indeed.
We wouldn't use any other host! Ms. King sent us videos and daily pictures and communicated with us about our little guy. We knew he would get the best vacay he could. Excellent care and companionship!
Susan is amazing!!! She has a true gift for caring for animals. Ralph was so happy there and she made him feel so loved while his momma and daddy had to be out of town.
My biggest fear now when traveling is that Ranger won't want to come home because he has such a good time with Susan & Harper! Thank you for the love and attention you give our big boy!
We absolutely love leaving our big baby with Susan. We know he is going to have as good a time as we will. We love the daily pictures so we can see what he is up to. Little Harper is so sweet and happily shares Susan. Thanks again Susan and Harper!!
Susan welcomed Oliver, a basset hound, into her home and family. The pictures she sent each day were worth a thousand words, showing a happy dog. I can't thank her enough!
Wonderful! the perfect place. Susan and Harper are the best! thank you for all you do. Chris Jerry and Abbey
Susan and her beagle Harper were so considerate
and kind to our bulldog Abbey. Susan is so concerned that your dog will have a positive experience in her home and she makes sure of it!
Harper is so sweet and is amazing how she welcomes others and shares her home.
Susan and Harper are a great team and we highly
recommend them!

This was Sparky's first stay with Susan. I felt completely at ease during my vacation, knowing he was receiving great care. He had a wonderful visit and Susan couldn't have been nicer to work with. He'll definitely be visiting again!
Susan was awesome!!

Our English Bulldog, Roxie, was very well cared for. Susan gave Roxie her medicine, handled the special dietary requests and sent us many pictures over the length of Roxie's vacation. Roxie had friends to play with and was very happy!

I did not worry about leaving Roxie with Susan one iota!! I will definitely use Susan again and encourage others to do so as well...unless it is the time I want her! Lol!

Big shout out to Susan...THANK YOU! YOU WERE AWESOME..PAWS DOWN!

Martha Thornton
Susan made us feel good about leaving our four legged children behind. We have never liked kenneling them and appreciated having a home environment with someone that is an obvious dog lover.
Bailey had another great weekend with Susan!!
Susan took wonderful care of Bongo again last week (his third visit with Susan). He returned home happy and anxiety free. Thanks again Susan and Harper!
I left my elderly dog(Sally) with Susan this past weekend, and could not be happier with her service. Because Sally requires medication and special care, I trust very few people to watch her. However, when she is with Susan I am at ease and know she is in the best hands possible. Thank you for allowing me to enjoy our vacation!
This was the second vacay for Ranger with Susan and her sweet girl Harper. Did we miss him? Yes. Were we worried about him? Absolutely not! Susan sent us daily pics to put our minds at ease. Thank you Susan!
Once again Calle had a wonderful time with Susan & Harper! Susan takes such loving care of Calle and Harper protects & helps Calle adjust from being away from Mom!

Thank you Susan for everything you do. We look forward to all our "visits".

Cindy & Calle Cook
Susan is great with Bailey, she understands Beagles! And Bailey likes going to Susan's House!
This was the first time our big boy stayed anywhere but home. Susan did an excellent job from start to finish to make sure Ranger had as nice a vacation as we did! Thank you Susan, you are the best!
Another wonderful visit for Calle!!! She loves Susan and I can always trust that Calle will get the best care possible. Susan is very professional, kind, and so trustworthy!

I can relax and enjoy my time away because I know that Susan is taking care of all Calle's needs!

Thank you so very much, Susan!

Angus just finished another successful and fun vacay with Susan, who attends to his every need. Since he is usually home with Dad, we want him to have a lot of attention, which we know he gets with Susan.
My dog (Sally) had a wonderful stay with Susan. I was a little nervous because Sally hurt her leg before I left, but Susan was great about giving her medications and keeping me updated with how she was doing. I was able to enjoy my trip, knowing Sally was in great hands. I was also delayed coming home due to weather, and Susan was extremely flexible. I couldn't have asked for a better host!
Susan did an outstanding job caring for our dog, Blazer. She was focused on every detail, from feeding schedule to and special needs he might have. I highly reccommend Susan as a caregiver for your dog. We will be using her services again! Scott
Susan is always professional, friendly, and considerate when Hunter goes to stay with her. He loves to visit her and we have nothing but good things to say! Susan recognizes how hard it is for you and your pup when you leave them behind and she goes above and beyond to make the experience as smooth as possible. Although I always miss Hunter when we're gone, I never have to worry about him because I know he's in such good hands.
Angus loves to visit Susan, where he is the king of her castle! He is normally home with my husband quite a bit, so when we go away, we like to know that he will receive a lot of attention. Susan lavishes Angus with praise and treats and sees to his every need. He loves to visit with other dogs, and really enjoys Susan's big back yard. Angus may miss us when we are gone, but we know he is in excellent hands with Susan.
Susan was very professional and conscientious towards my dog and our needs. The meet and greet she requires before accepting bookings shows her insight and passion for a safe and friendly environment. King's Royal Treatment is a fitting name for the environment she creates. I will be recommending her to others!
I couldn't have asked for anyone better to take care of my Sally. Susan kept me updated with pictures throughout the weekend, which I appreciated very much. Sally had a great time with Susan and her little Harper. We will definitely book again. I highly recommend Susan!
Bongo had a great second stay with Susan over Thanksgiving. Bongo was very calm when he returned home after a week with Susan; he was not at all agitated or out-of-sorts as he had been after stays in kennels with cages. I think this speaks volumes about Susan's great care!
Susan is wonderful! I was totally able to relax and know Calle was well cared for in every sense! She is great communicating and sending updates and pictures, and Calle is treated as if she were Susan's own! I would recommend Susan every time!
Once again, Susan has taken wonderful care of Calle. Her expertise, love and care are beyond any words! Thank you very much Susan!
Susan provides exceptional care for her doggie guests. She loves them like her own and not the smallest detail of their care is overlooked!
Once again, Calle had a great stay....thoughtful, loving care. I couldn't ask for anything better!! Cindy & Calle
Susan is a GREAT pet host - she's extremely patient with pups, and a true dog lover. We won't hesitate to use her again in the future.
Once again Calle had the most positive experience possible with Susan! She is very patient with Calle's anxiety at being left and works tirelessly giving her love, affection, and kindness! Susan has a definite goal in mind in getting Calle comfortable more and more with each stay.....and it is working!!
Thank you very much Susan, you are a "gift" to both Calle and I.

Cindy Cook
Susan was very loving with our dogs and paid attention to every detail of their care
Susan was wonderful with Calle! I am so pleased!! It was Calle's first time ever away from me and Susan was so loving & kind and worked very hard at putting Calle at ease....not and easy feat with my little anxious pocket beagle! I appreciated Susan's recommendations for Calle's comfort and care very much and can't recommend her highly enough!
Thank you so much Susan!

Cindy & Calle
Susan was awesome with my dog Chloe. She made Chloe feel so welcome that Chloe wasn't even that excited when I came to pick her up- which is very unusual for Chloe. Susan also made me feel very comfortable leaving Chloe, knowing that she was so happy staying with Susan. .
Susan was a great fit for Bailey our beagle. Susan has had beagles of her own so understands a beagle! She was so nice to both Bailey and myself. And I loved getting the pictures of Bailey each day! I will definitely ask Susan to take care of Bailey again!
We got Emily as a puppy. She grew up with Buddy the boxer. He died last summer and Emily has been very lost and needing extra time with her family. I have used a kennel for the dogs before, but Emily always had Buddy as her kennel mate. This time I tried! Will use it every time we are gone-but only if we can leave her with Susan King!!!!!!
Words cannot even begin to describe the EXCEPTIONAL care given to our sweet Bella Mariposa while we were away on vacation! Susan has a special connection with animals and her love for them is genuine. It was very hard for our kids to leave their girl for a whole week...and Susan even took the time to send my kids pictures and updates via email. She went above and beyond in making our doggie feel at home with snuggles, playtime and even doing her hair! It is without the slightest hesitation that we would recommend Susan King and DogVacay!!!
-The Brannon Family
Thank you so much Susan, I had such peace of mind knowing you were caring for Bandit and Rosie. I knew they wouldn't get "run over" by being with a room full of other dogs. or left alone. The pictures each day kept us connected. You took the time to get to know them and treated our dogs like family. This is the only way to go. So worth the effort! Carol
My dog Zoey stayed with Susan recently, and it was just a great experience. Susan was excellent to work with, and flexible in making arrangements. During the stay, the pictures and short updates were great and really gave me piece of mind that my girl was in good hands. I will certainly be bringing Zoey back again. Thank you Susan!
We are so grateful that we found Susan and DogVacay - our Buffy had the time of her life. It is obvious that Susan loves dogs and goes out of her way to ensure that your pet is treated with tender loving care.

Thank you so much Susan and especially for the daily pictures. Our vacation was much more fun knowing that Buffy was in such good hands.
Susan is a true dog lover! She took fabulous care of our dog, diligently followed his special diet, and gave him plenty of outdoor time and lots of personal attention. Susan even sent us photos and updates so we never had to worry about how he was doing while we were away. We are so pleased with our first experience with Susan that we will definitely be choosing her again. Thanks Susan!
