About Sue

SUE'S POOCH PARK has a lot of space (5.5 acres) for guests to discover something, get exercise and stay safe. The property is fully fenced with a gated entry at the drive. We care for it much like a park. Your pooch is very welcome anywhere on the property. The maximum number of guests at any time is three (3). Guests are supervised at all times. Their play is not limited whether inside or out. You provide instructions regarding food/treats, sleep/rest, play, or other care needs. Any restrictions imposed are strictly for safety and sanity. I/we (my husband, Craig, and our adult daughter, Cristine) have cared for and loved 1-2 dogs of our own at a time most of our lives. Our English Setter, Jake, loves to swim in our in-ground pool (which is now closed for the season) chase a squirrel or bird, wander or sleep under a shade tree, on the front porch or rear deck. Maybe your pooch would like to give it a try, too. Oh, and by the way, we give lots of hugs and special attention whenever your pooch wants. No extra charge! Check out the photos to see some of our most recent guests enjoying themselves! It's easy to schedule a Meet-n-Greet through this site. Give it a try!

Sue was great. Sassy just loved it there. She is a very active nine year old Labradoodle and she had so many things to do. She loves the water and Sue's pool was just great. Sassy loves to explore and Sue's vast yard was just perfect. Sassy seemed to fit right in with Sue and her family. We could not have been more pleased.

This was Sassy's first stay with Sue and we were very pleased. We have two other stay's with Sue planned in the next month. Sassy is a very energetic dog who loves to run and play and Sue's home worked out very well for her.
We love Sue! Our golden had a wonderful time running through the snow in her 5 acre yard! Harley loved having a friend (Sue's dog) to play with. Sue always makes sure we get pictures and comments about Harley's activities. She made our trip to Hawaii worry free. This is our 3rd time leaving our dog with Sue and his experience couldn't have been more caring. She is very careful to follow our dog's dietary needs and asks if she is not sure if he can eat a certain food. I feel this is a wonderful safe environment for our dog! Thanks Sue!

Once again our golden retriever, Harley, had an awesome time staying at Sue's. She is so conscientious and caring. We were sent videos daily assuring us of our dog's well being. We were wondering if he would refuse to come with us as happened last time when we picked him up. Harley loves to be outside and run. . .their five acres provided plenty of opportunity for that. Nice to leave our dog and have such peace of mind! Thanks again Sue. We will definitely use this dog vacay again!

You can tell that this entire family are dog lovers!! Sue was honest when she told me that she thought Jackie missed me..........And Jackie is SUCH a needy pet. Her daughter let Jackie sleep in bed with her....how sweet. I had an emergency situation, and Sue and her family were just there to make it easier. There isn't enough that I can say........this is a totally safe and loving environment.

Such a positive, happy, tail wagging experience!
Your dog may not want to leave...
Sue understands dogs and people...she not only took awesome care of my two boys; Sue took time to text me messages & pictures to ease my mind as well.
Sue, Jake and family are the complete package.
I just hope she isn't "booked up" when I leave again.

We were having windows replaced in our home and left our three dogs with Sue for the day. It worked out great for us and the dogs really seemed to enjoy themselves. She treats "the kids" like one of her own. Definitely will use Sue again!
This is the first time I experienced my dog not wanting to leave!! Craig and Sue we're awesome and our dog had a wonderful time! They are both very conscientious and obviously gave our dog lots of attention. . .Harley (our golden) can't wait for a return stay! They sent pics and texts which really helped us know our dog was doing great! We are really grateful we found this dog.vacay.

This was Jack's second stay at Sue's Pooch Park. We are so happy that we have found Sue! Although Jack was nervous at first - he has some separation anxiety - Sue comforted him and he was eventually just fine. He ran, played, and had an all-around great time. Sue's frequent texts to us gave us peace of mind. I give Sue's Pooch Park my highest reservation.

I cannot be happier with Sue and wonderful job she did taking care of our yellow lab Daisy. Sue took time to get to know us and our dog and her routine, needs, personality and habbits. Sue made sure that Daisy feels comfortable staying with her. We were able to go out of town and be confident that our baby is in great care. Daisy had a great time staying with Sue and we are looking forward to booking our stay in the future!

Left my two dogs with Sue for the weekend. Sue was amazing! She texted photos of the dogs playing and kept me up to date every few hours. When I went to pick them up on Sunday, they didn't want to leave. That never happened at a kennel before. They loved Sue's place, particularly all the room they had on her property to run and play. I will definitely be using Sue's services from now on!

My dogs went back for another visit with Sue and had a wonderful time. Thanks, Sue!!
Sue is kind to the dogs and reassuring to owners. She has a wonderful large fenced in yard and a very nice dog named Jake.
Sue and her family were absolutely fabulous! My dog had a great time. They have a very large backyard which was perfect for my dog. Sue was amazing w/ my dog and me! I would definitely have my dog stay w/ her in the future and would HIGHLY recommend her.

Sue took wonderful care of my 2 dogs! This was the first time I had to leave them with someone other than family, and I was somewhat nervous about it. Sue sent text messages and pictures to let me know how they were doing, and I was able to relax and enjoy my trip knowing they were being well taken care of. She has a beautiful property that gave the dogs so much room to run and play, and they seemed to fit right in with her dog Jake. I will definitely take them back to Sue the next time I need to board them.

Thank you, Sue!!

Can't say enough great things about Sue and her family - Luke has had trouble at other places in the past but he was totally comfortable here and Sue made sure he felt welcome and comfortable. I don't think he wanted to leave!
Jack's experience at Sue's Pooch Park was fabulous! Sue took care of Jack like he was her own. I particularly enjoyed the photos and texts that described details of Jack's stay. I recommend Sue's Pooch Park without reservation and plan to have Jack visit again in the future.

Sue, Jake and her family were wonderful hosts! They took great care of Pandora and made her feel welcome in their home. Sue sent frequent text updates and pictures of Pandora so we would know she was having a good time.

Her yard is beautiful, secure and a great safe place for dogs to run and explore.

It was great to go on vacation and know that our dog was well taken care of and safe and happy.

We highly recommend Sue and Jake to stay with any time!

My dogs had a wonderful time during their 4 days staying with Sue and her English Setter Jake! We knew from the meet and greets that Jake and our 2 year old brittany spaniel Jordan would end up getting along. Our 6 year old cocker spaniel/cavalier mix was a bigger challenge. Auggie is more of a people dog and doesn't much care for other dogs (he just tolerates Jordan). Sue welcomed them both and spent time taking them for walks on her five acre property. She also tried to coax Auggie out of his "shell".
It was very hot the first couple of days and she made sure that they didn't stay outside too long or get overheated. Jordan LOVES to swim, and he was in the pool several times daily, along with Jake
. Jordan is used to sleeping in bed with us, and that is exactly what he was allowed to do while staying with Sue and her family. That was fabulous! .
Sue and her family really went out of their way to make the boys feel at home. We received a text update daily, along with photos, and that meant so much-knowing that Jordan and Auggie were being cared for and loved just like they would be at home. There will be no more kennel boarding for our boys, and I cannot recommend Sue highly enough!
