About Susan

33 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
A graduate of the University of Kentucky (B.S in Agriculture/Animal Science), I am a lifelong animal lover and wildlife/nature hobbyist with over 30 years’ experience as a veterinary technical assistant. I am able to administer oral and injected medications plus subcutaneous fluids. Since 1979 my four legged family has included 5 horses, 5 dogs and 13 cats and I currently live with 2 mixed breed dogs-Sister and Eve, and 3 house cats-Angel, Hazel and Monita. Over the years I have rescued/fostered and successfully re-homed 9 dogs (and several cats) plus accommodated many four legged guests for friends and relatives. I launched Sit! Stay! in 2015, an exclusive (and licensed) dog sitting business in my own home. Situated on a quiet corner in a quiet neighborhood, my dog friendly (and safe) home includes a large fenced yard (a mix of 6 foot privacy and 4 foot board and "no climb" wire) with plenty of shade or sun and room to explore or play. Sitting for one or two dogs at a time allows me the luxury of offering each client a private and personalized experience while giving discerning families the peace of mind they want and need to truly enjoy vacation or business time away from their furry loved ones. My guests are always treated like family members! (p.s. I mark my calendar as "Unavailable" whenever I book guests outside of the DogVacay website. Even though I have not yet booked any guests through DogVacay, I already have several repeat clients and I will provide references on request.)

Susan is wonderful! Our small dog stayed for two nights and was treated like a prince. The two dogs who live at the house, Eve and Sister, are gentle and very well socialized. We will definitely be using Susan again!
