30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been around dogs all my life. Some have been chosen but most have chosen me as strays or as rescues. I am the person who sees a dog on the run in bitter cold weather, coaxes them into my car and finds a way to warm him up and get him home. I am the one who honestly acknowledges that I get more from dogs than they ever get from me, even if I give a lot. My own dog of 18 1/2 years died over a year ago ago, and I am still learning how to do life without him. Taking care of other dogs helps me to stay connected to canine friends and slowly heal. The dog in the photos is one of those special house guests who I oversee from time to time who opens my heart, and brings wonderful canine spirit into my home!

I live in Plymouth, own my own home, have a nice yard and lots of walking paths in the my area. I do a lot of walking on my own so having a pet accompany me fits quite well. I am college educated, am sane and quite loyal to my families I work for. I am a big fan of the tv show "Lucky Dog"! I have handled all sorts of breeds but am most comfortable with a one-on-one situation and with small to medium dogs. I specialize in eldercare for dogs, and am comfortable with diabetic needs. I will consider overnight "guests" for boarding with an home interview first. I have upon occasion stayed at the home of a pet who needs extra care. It is my policy to only take in one dog at a time in my home. One-on-one contact is always the best!
I love canine companions sometimes more than people. They are very present, giving and loyal...who could ask for more. Feel free to contact me if you think I might be a good fit for your dog. I will provide strong references upon request. Thanks. Susan

Our dog Lucy has gotten very anxious in a kennel setting, and doesn't get along well with other dogs. Susan and Lucy were a perfect fit! We got lots of pictures of her relaxing and when we picked her up, she looked great. It was such a relief to know that she was comfortable and happy in a relaxed, low-key environment while we were on vacation. We will definitely call Susan the next time we need a place for Lucy to stay. Susan took detailed notes on Lucy's needs and was very attentive. Thanks Susan!

Susan once again provided wonderful care for our dog, Denali, while we were away. He came home well fed and well rested, and we got to see a few photos of him while we were away. My only wish is that we would get to have daily updates as we miss our pooch and love to see the updates.

Susan did an excellent job of interviewing and asking questions to make sure Denali's stay would be safe and comfortable, including asking things like "where does he like to sleep?" Or "how is he on a leash, does he pull?" She sent us a few texts while we were gone to let us know how he was doing. And because she was interrupted several times when we picked him up, she did a follow up phone call to make sure everything was OK. My only irritant was that she charged us by the day instead of the usual by the night so our 3 night, 4 day stay cost $140 instead of the $105 we expected. We agreed to the price because by that time we had few alternatives, and we liked Susan. It was a good fit and we will use her again.

We have two dogs. A 12 1/2 year old Vizsla and an 8 month Brittany pup. The pup likes the dog hotels where there's plenty of action but our older dog has never kenneled well. We've tried a few times but he just comes back a neurotic mess. He has a very sweet and soft personality but can be a little grumpy with younger dogs. In general, he a prefers quiet environment where he can curl up and rest. Sue was the perfect fit! We honestly could not have found a better place for Cooper. Prior to dropping him off, we met and she took very detailed notes as to his daily routine, emergency contact info and his misc. personality quirks. Not only did she take really good care of him, she really seemed to bond with him and enjoy his company. She also sent us several updates with photos which was nice to see while on vacation. I would highly recommend Sue for an older dog.
