About Sue

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Mature, reliable, dependable and many repeat guests! Summer, winter, spring or fall; swimming, running through snow, basking in the rays of the sunshine or flopping out on the couch in front of the fireplace, your pets will be looked after as well as mine.
If you think this is the vacation your pet would like to have: look no farther. Located in the Red Deer area (just southeast of Red Deer). My home offers that and so much more. Not only will your pets have full access to all areas of my home but they have a full half acre in which to run and play. With all of the freedom they have, it is imperative that your pet be well adjusted, socialized and house broken.
Along with the three resident dogs, there are two resident cats and there may be a few foster dogs here, as well.
My home is a non-smoking one and I stay away from chemical based cleaners as much as possible.
If my calendar shows that I am booked, please contact me, regardless, as the calendar may not be correct. Computer inefficiencies.
Please note that if your pets require extra care or have issues that need to be dealt with, an extra fee may be applied. Please talk to me about it before arrangements are finalized.
A percentage of my income from this will be donated to a local animal shelter/rescue group.
Proof of recent vaccinations and/or titer testing is required.
I am home more often than not but do work part-time.
Happy home, happy pups!
For boarding in my home, the prices quoted are for a 24 hour time frame. Anything over that, may result in an extra charge:)
Please note that effective July 1st, 2017 my rates for boarding will be going up to $35 per night and is based on a 24 hour day.

I have known Sue for over 30 years and she has always looked after and cared for animals. In Sue's life, the animals always come first. I have lost count of the abandoned and mistreated dogs she has taken in, helped learn to trust again, nursed back to health and suffered over their loss. Outside of our own children, Sue is the only person we would leave our own beloved yellow lab (Harley) with confident that he would be well cared for.

We can't say enough about Sue.This really is the perfect place to leave your dog and feel at ease.Sue was very accommodating at short notice and when we arrived we knew we were leaving Eragon in great hands.The property is lovely , lots of space for the dogs to play and very secure.Sue was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable , and the dogs just love her.
It really is a Poochies paradise and we highly recommend her
My 13 year old dog has never stayed with anyone but a friend on occasion, like 4 times in his lifetime. He has become very nervous travelling which makes it very stressful for him and us as well. We decided to try DogVacay and we were introduced to Sue I. Well!!!!!! is all I can say. Crosby has fallen in love with Sue and vice versa. Sue is very experienced & knows how to introduce the other dogs so it is all comfortable for everyone of the animals. Crosby is very happy with Sue and so are we. We will definitely use her the next time we need a great place to take our Crosby & I will not hesitate to recommend this company and Sue to anyone who is looking for a place to take their dog.
Thank you so much Sue, you made our experience and Crosby's experience a great one.
Sue is such a sweet lady, with not only a love for dogs but is also very knowledgeable of their needs- the dogs are left in great care. Everything was as communicated. I will definitely be using her doggy sitting again! Thanks Sue!
