About Susan

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my name is Sue and I offer professional dog walking, pet sitting,daily in-home visits, and pet transportation.

I believe my genuine love of dogs and my years caring for them make me an excellent host for your pet. I spent years in Europe breeding and training dogs and have assisted at dog shows. I specialize with on leash walks and will take your pet for walks either in the neighbourhood, park or forest walking trails depending on the dog and their energy levels. I can bring your dog for walks with others or by themselves, whatever you prefer is fine with me.

When Pet Sitting I will be the primary caregiver for your furry friend .I ensure your dog enjoys play time (both inside and out), food, fresh water, treats, exercise, quiet naps and comfortable sleeping arrangements.

I have for years been
• A regular dog-sitter and dog walker for friends and family
• I regularly donate to canine causes
• I joined the Dog Vacay community in the hopes of expanding my passion for dogs by caring for your fur baby(s)

What makes me special:
? I am Pet First Aid Certified;
? Passionate about canines
? I have cared for dogs for over 30 years
? I am a kind, loving, loyal and dependable
? I have a clear record check and driving record
? References available

Whether it be for a day, week, month or longer, I want my clients to feel comfortable in knowing their pet will be personally cared for and spoiled with love and attention. Enjoy your vacation and leave your pet safely in the comfort of their own home.

Your pet will have constant access to fresh water, and will be diligently fed according to any meal schedule you provide. Treats will be also be provided.

If your dog is on any medications, please let me know. I am happy to administer any pills or liquid medicines your dog requires.

I look forward to meeting you and your little furry one(s) soon!

Jan 2017
Susan at DogVacay was amazing! She truly loves dogs and her services exceeded my expectations. Since our dog was a rescue dog and has anxiety when we are away on vacation, I was worried about having him in a big kennel since he needs a lot of attention. The dogs are able to roam freely and not kept in crates so it truly feels like a home environment. Our dog enjoyed his vacation too, he didn't want to leave when we picked him up. We are definitely coming back!

Susan and her family came to our rescue when we didn't have anyone to look after our Yellow Lab puppy, Archie, over Christmas while we were away. As soon as she answered the phone I knew I had found the right place. She is warm, caring, professional, and a true dog lover!

Susan and her family treated Archie as though he was their own dog, giving him the run of their (dog-proofed) home. I loved that there were already several crate options set up, as Archie is most comfortable sleeping in a crate at night, and lots of nice new toys for him to play with. Susan also has a perfect fenced backyard for play time, and also took Archie on great country walks which he definitely missed when he came back to our downtown home.

Susan was extremely professional and detailed, and I really appreciated scope of the questions that we were asked about Archie and his routine, as well as the detailed paperwork in case he needed emergency care.

We got regular updates on how he was doing, complete with photos, and never worried for a minute about him while we were away.

We would (and will) leave Archie with Susan and her family again in an instant! You could not ask for a better home away from home for your dog.

Susan has taken care of both our two year old yellow lab and our 9 year old yellow lab. Susan is a caring and enthusiastic pet person who worked hard with our "puppy" on improving his fetching and youthful exuberance as Creighton was very excitable. Their visits were filled with all different kinds of activity that kept them happy and stimulated and excited to go see her, or have her visit and walk them. Susan is a kind and caring and knowledgeable dog person and genuinely loves dogs as well.

So, if you are leaving that special member of the family behind and don't know who to turn to? Well I can give this review with a happy heart. Our boy Mylo 11 years old has never been left with anyone but family. Glowing report for the household of Susan and family who took our boy in as if he were their own. I got reports and pictures throughout the weekend just letting us know how he was doing which let me enjoy our time away. I would highly recommend this home as one you can trust and know your loved fur baby will be in the best care possible. Thank you Susan and crew. I think Mylo is missing you.
