About Susan

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Susan's Garden is located on 5 acres dedicated to our miniature farm animals - Our home and property is safe and secure and a wonderful place for your pet to visit - romp & play on our fully fenced property - swim in the pond (weather permitting) and soak up loving attention. Our home is arranged such that there are 4 baby gated rooms where pets are safe from any bickering, yet see and interact with others. Your pet will be treated as a guest - not a "boarder" ...

I have completed a Veterinary Assistant course at The University and Akron and am currently in my second semester with Penn Foster University working on a degree in Science (Veterinary Technician). There are 4 veterinary practices within a 5 mile radius from our farm - and they all know us and all our animals by name.

Please do be sure your pet is fully protected from parasites - while we do not "require" proof of protection - we also can not guarantee your pet will not encounter parasites on our farm... If you would like suggestions regarding coverage - please contact me

Susan was amazing. She has an entire farm with fenced in areas for your dog to run and play. This was our first time leaving Belle with anyone outside of our home and we were a bit nervous. She made us feel at ease and it seems as if our dog had a good time and made some new friends.
My dog pickles had a great time and was treated like a part of the family. Would highly recommend Susan and her husband and personally plan to book with them again in the future.
I asked my Vet if they knew and recommended anyone who pet sat in their home. They gave me Susan's name and phone number. I called Susan shortly before leaving town on a 2 week family vacation. She was very happy to take Bailey for the stay. I felt very comfortable leaving Bailey in her loving home. He was well cared for and definitely pampered. Susan also sent me pics of Bailey during his stay. I would recommend Susan's DogVacay to anyone. I plan on using Susan in the future for Bailey.
Susan and her husband treat our dogs as their own, like children. You can tell immediately how comfortable they are when they visited. they were use to another boarder for years, but they were so happy, running around. Susan kept an eye on them even when were talking, she still knew where the dogs where. They are in a large fenced area, visible from all sides. the dogs are outside only when monitored by her or her husband. Both are outside many times a day for they have a farm and multiple chores daily. What a wonderful atmosphere to be in.Go visit and I am sure you will fall love with it and them like we did! She also send you videos of the dogs inside her home and outside in the yard.
Susan is confident and at ease with dogs, and the other animals, on her beautiful property. It is obvious to me that my dog is comfortable with Susan and her husband, and has the opportunity of becoming friendly with Susan's dog, Emily, and piglets!

I receive photos and videos while I'm away, and can relax, knowing that Dexy is in good, responsible hands.
Susan was great! She sent us pictures and videos of our pups and kept us updated on how they were doing. They were exhausted when they got home after spending a fun weekend with Susan. I would use her again in the future.
Susan is wonderful and very easy to communicate with. She took great care of my very high energy puppy and sent several pictures and videos of her having fun!
Great host. My dog loves Susan and her husband. I feel comfortable sending her back anytime!
Susan was amazing! She responds quickly and her place is beautiful! Our dog had such a fantastic time, it was like going to dog Disneyland for him. Susan even sent us updates on how he was doing and she topped it off with a cute video of our dog "dancing" with her's......which made us all laugh, yet made us all feel comfortable that he was having a good time too. We would highly recommend her....permitting you don't take our spot
Lola loves coming to stay!! Susan treats her like one of her own.
Best thing I've ever done for our dog! He came home happy and exhausted. A week later he is still calmer and more content than he's ever been. The environment is ideal, Susan is great and clearly loves animals. I'm looking forward to Charlie's next visit and recommend them without a single reservation!
Susan took such great care of both of my dogs while we were out of state on vacation. Her completely fenced in property was great for my dogs to explore and she gave multiple updates every day. My family and I were able to put our minds at ease knowing that our dogs we being well taken care of. The next time we are in need of a dog sitter, we will definitely look to Susan first.
Jackson's stay was great. He was well taken care of and we got a photo of him playing with some other guests!
Susan was amazing with my beagle Ellie Mae. I was nervous to leave Ellie Mae with a sitter for the first time especially for a whole week. After first meeting Susan, seeing her home and her pets my nerves were at ease. Ellie Mae got to run around her large farm property daily and had so much fun. Susan sent me videos and pictures everyday of Ellie Mae (of her playing/sleeping/socializing which helped ease my mind as well. I would 100% recommend Susan for a pet sitter. Caring, loving, attentive and treats your animal as a guest. Already decided to have Ellie Mae stay with her again for my next trip in August. Thanks Susan -- could not have asked for anything better! xo
Susan and her husband were great with our Jasmine. Jasmine enjoyed all of the interaction with he other animals and the loving care from Susan.
We thought Susan was a wonderful sitter for Amos. He came home exhausted, but from the photos that she sent of him running with the other dogs and her own farm animals, it's no wonder he's wiped out.
She also offered some great training advice, as we have acknowledged that he is a bundle of energy. Susan seems very knowledgeable, confident and caring.
Susan is great! Lexi loved staying there. She loved running in the huge yard and being around all the other animals. Susan sent pictures and videos throughout the stay. Lexi will definitely be visiting her again!
Susan and her husband are wonderful! She sent us videos of our dog during his stay. My dog had so much fun he didn't want to leave! I feel comfortable leaving him with Susan.
Susan was wonderful and truly accommodating to our two labs Charlie and Chester. We received videos of our boys up to twice a day showing how much they were enjoying the property and the animals. Our dogs were very well cared for during their stay. When we picked Charlie and Chester up after their stay they were very happy and very tired from all the fun they had. I would reccomend Susan to friends and family.
The Fortney's
Susan was great with Jasmine. I was leary leaving Jasmine because she has never been to a persons house, just to a kennel. She was well taken care of and got more attention then we probably give to her. I definitely would recommend Susan!
Susan was PHENOMENAL!! We absolutely loved everything about her and our dog's stay. Her communication was awesome, the activities she provided for our dog was amazing and more importantly, the piece of mind of knowing that our dog was in great hands was instant from the time we dropped him off until the time we picked him up.

We would highly recommend Susan to anyone!
Susan is wonderful! Can't wait for our next visit.
Sam enjoyed his stay at Susan's. She seems to genuinely love all animals and treated our dog like one of her own. We will be back
We absolutely LOVE Susan! She took such great care of my dog and sent regular updates during her stay. I knew she was in good hands and didn't worry at all! It's so nice to have someone like Susan you can rely on to take care of your furry loved one.
I believe Midas throughly enjoyed his visit with Susan. She was very considerate of any of my wishes in regard to Midas. He loves being able to run & romp outdoors . And Susan made sure he was able to get exercise, plus getting love and attention while indoors.
I'd definitely recommend her. Actually I'm hoping to book with her again later in the month.
Best internet find and best money I ever spent! Susan is awesome. Sadie had a great stay. I dont think Sadie wanted to leave!! Susan has the personality that makes you feel comfortable leaving your baby with. We have never left Sadie with anyone before. The only thing Susan was missing was a cape! She has a nice, clean home and takes the kind of care a loving mother would give to her loving children. I would highly recommend her. She also sends you photos of your pup having lots of fun. I cant say enough good about her!!!
Susan (and her husband) were absolutely wonderful, she did a great job with our Bentley. She sent pictures and let us know how he was doing. She baked fresh treats with Bentley and even gave us some when we picked him up. She made Bentley feel like he was at home. Susan has a special love for animals, which allowed us to have assurance that everything would be fine while we were away.

This was our first experience with DogVacay and it was very positive. We will not hesitate to use Susan again to watch Bentley for us!
