About Susan

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Looking for your dog to have a good time away from home? This is your place. I have two very friendly doodles that love company and love making new friends. I work part-time very close to my home and regularly check in on the dogs throughout the day. I will be around to attend to all your furbaby's needs. I'm not gone more than 2-3 hours at a time and I keep the dogs together in a doggy/laundry room where I have a web cam set up so I can check in on them at all times. My backyard is big and partially fenced, but we have an invisible fence that I can train your dog on or if you prefer, I can keep your dog leashed while in the yard. I will do whatever makes the pet owner most comfortable. I also take the dogs on walks every day, multiple times a day if needed.

Pick ups and drop offs are by appointment only. Please let me know ASAP if you will be arriving more than 10 minutes later than your scheduled time. I try to be very flexible, but due to so many extreme late arrivals, I've had to become a little more strict with my time.

I've had dogs my entire life and believe that life is not complete without a dog's love and companionship. If you want your furbaby to be well taken care of, loved and exercised, book with me!

Breed Restrictions-
I don't believe in restricting certain breeds, but I do require a Meet-n-Greet to get to know your dog's personality and to ensure no aggressive behavior..

Susan is amazing & very passionate about animals. I don't know that I know anyone that loves animals as much as Susan. She is a wonderful mother to her own, better than most parents that I know. Your baby would be in wonderful hands with her. Rest assured that he/she would be very well taken care of.

Susan has kept our dog, Jubee, on several occasions. Jubee loves going to her house, which means I don't worry about my dog. I know Jubee is happy, content and well taken care of when she is with Susan!

Susan is a WONDERFUL dog sitter. As someone who loves her dog as her child, I would trust her with my baby any day. Her home is safe and her dogs are a joy to be around-- plus, they all play so well together!! I would recommend Susan to anyone who needs their dog watched!

Very carrying of my fur babies while I was out of town. I would like to do business again in the future. Also I am sure Lulu would not mind playing with Susan's dogs.

Jax had another great time with Susan. She sent daily pictures of him and he looked like he was having a blast. She also sent jax home with a personalized ornament for the Christmas tree. Will use Susan again if booking is possible.
Amazing pet owners. I received pictures and updates daily. My dog was spoiled and loved like he was their own.
This was Lilly's first visit with Susan and the entire process went smoothly, from the reservation booking, drop off, until I picked her up. Susan sent daily updates via text message and photos. Lilly usually has anxiety when we leave her but not this time, she was her normal happy self when we dropped her off and after when we picked her up. She had so much fun playing with Susan's other dogs. I'll definitely be bringing her back!
charlie had a great time!! Susan sent pictures daily which was great.
Jax had a great time and was actually sad to leave when he got picked up. Susan seems like a great person and definitely a dog lover.
Susan was great! My pup had a blast with her dogs and I definitely plan on using her again!
Susan was wonderful and her dog Stevie was very friendly and welcoming to Jack. I appreciate that she took the time to show me where Jack would stay and asked questions about his routine. She is great and I will use her again for sure.
Super friendly and great with our 2 pups. I would use Susan again!!!
Susan is amazing! She obviously loves dogs and they love her too. Each day we got pictures of our dog playing with her dogs and looking really happy! Her house and yard are very dog friendly and our dog was completely happy and at home there when we picked him up. I cannot recommend Susan highly enough!
Powe had a great time, made friends, and received lots of attention. I loved seeing pictures of him each day while I was out of town. I highly recommend Susan and her herd!! ;)
Couldn't ask for anything better for our dogs. Our dogs are part of our family and she treated them as such. She sent photos and updates and was very accommodating with drop off and pick-up. Will definitely use her again. So happy we found Susan!!
Had a very good stay!!
I wanted to thank Susan for watching our puppy Ghost while we traveled to Kentucky for my husband to take his comps for his PhD program. We then traveled to NC to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We were worried about taking the puppy with us, but more worried about boarding him somewhere. My husband found Susan on the doggy vacay program. She immediately squashed any hesitations we had about leaving him. Every day we got a text about how he was doing. Even more comforting was the fact that Susan sent several pictures each day. I was worried that Ghost wouldn't want to come home since he was having such a good time. It was a great opportunity to socialize Ghost with other dogs and other people. Susan's enthusiasm was evident when we talked to her before leaving the puppy. He went with her very easily, (he is already a great judge of character); Susan wanted to know about any issues or concerns she should be aware of before taking him. If anyone is looking for a place for their dog to be cared for while they are out of town, I would highly recommend Susan. Next time we have to go out of town, one of the first calls we will make is to Susan so she can take care of our worries by taking care of Ghost.
She is great inside and out . My dog misses her dog I can tell lol . I recommend her to you if you are looking for someone to care for your dog as a mother figure ,she rocks ! Oh yes she sends daily updates as well !
Susan was great! I had to go out of town for a family emergency and she accepted my reservation at the last minute. She sent me lots of pics and updates so I knew my dog was well taken care of.
Susan was AWESOME!!! Bailey had such a good time and was actually probably sad to leave. He played with her two dogs for the week, and was able to enjoy himself. I recommend Susan to anyone that needs a sitter. She was super!
Susan was wonderful! She went above and beyond with everything. I knew Oreo was in great hands. She sent tons of photos and gave good details on how Oreo was doing. Susan was excellent!
