About Susan

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I would love to watch your fur babies while you are away on vacation, day care or having your home remodeled. I also take extended visits for people going out of the country for a month or more.
I have worked at a local kennel for the past 15 years and it is something I would not want for my fur babies. There is no special attention to each pet, they are let out for just a few minutes 2 times a day and they are locked in a cage. Most pets just do not deserve to be there and some do not do very well there.
I do live very close to Houston Intercontinental Airport for easy drop off and pick up before you leave and return to town. I am available for early morning drop offs and late night pick ups. Please let me know drop off and pick up times. There is nothing worse than wanting to run to the store and being stuck at home all day waiting on some one.
In my home they will be fed on your schedule, and any activity your baby likes, ball, sprinklers, small pool during warm weather, walks or anything that your want. They will sleep where you decide. I have dogs of my own so I have blankets on the floor for them to relax on or you can bring their crate. I have a fully fenced back yard with a cyclone fence and they will be in a safe place while you are on your vacation, holiday travel or even having your home remodeled.
I have a doggie door with full access to the yard 24/7. I do shut the door if it is raining or cold at night. Out side is fully fenced with a patio, deck with ceiling fans and water fountains for a cook drink of water. There is room to run and play.
All my children are grown but I do have grand children that come over frequently. All pets must be child and other pet friendly. I do have a separate small yard if you have a small pet that if I use for constant supervision when in use.
If you have more than 1 dog I will watch the second and third dogs at a discounted rate.
I appreciate you sharing your fur baby with me while you are on your vacation or on business. I send pictures to your account on dogvacay.com or/and text messages. It is so nice seeing your pup while you are having your vacation.
Please provide a current shot record when you make a reservation. It is important that in case your baby gets sick I have all the information on your shot record. Your vets number, name and address and the vaccines they have received. It would be terrible for them to have their shots twice if I did not have proof of their shots. I have had a couple of pets get sick when they are here, a ear infection, upset tummy and diarrhea. Mostly due to a new place and the pup stressing.. I can sit with your puppy a lot during the day to make them feel comfortable.
Your pup will have fun while you are having fun and a lot of times they don't want to leave and when they come back a second time they get all excited when they see where they are going. That makes me feel great. Puppy kisses are the best.

Susan is always my first choice when dropping off my pups. She is always so flexible and accommodating, and I feel that she takes care of my pups as well as she would her own. I love that she is able to keep up with sending me daily updates and the freedom that my pups have to walk around the house and play outside.

Susan was great. Hugo seemed very comfortable when I picked him up. Susan also sent me a lot of photos of him while on vacation which keep me at ease.
Susan was great! She took very good care of our dogs and even sent pictures and updates during their stay. I will definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone!!!
Susan seemed to be very concerned with my dog's well being which was very comforting to me.
I stumbled upon DogVacay by accident and am so excited I did! Susan was a GREAT host for our dogs. Located in the neighborhood and easy access. Took great care of my dogs and kept us updated with fun photos. I think my dogs were bummed to come home! At least I know for sure they played hard cause they slept for 2 days straight! Can't wait to use her service again. Pawsome!

Susan was very accommodating and flexible. She was always quick to respond with any questions we had. Our dogs really enjoyed their time with Susan. She has a large back yard for them to play in and her home is located on a quiet street. I would recommend her for a short or long stay for you dog!

Susan was very accommodating with my last minute request And very responsive.
Susan took care of Romo for 10 days. She has a big backyard and the dogs get plenty of time with other dogs and people. She's close to the airport which is really convenient!
Susan is a kind and friendly person. She did send an update over the weekend which was nice. Our dog also came back from the weekend looking very bloated and tired. He was really sick, resulting in an expensive vet visit. There were many many animals in the house and I'm not sure how well he was watched around food.

Susan was really nice, friendly and flexible. Rj was taken care of and I received a picture everyday which was really nice. I would really recommand Susan.
Susan was very nice and I think that Tank had a great time. Will use her again when we go out of town.
I felt my dog was safe and comfortable as he was allowed to stay inside. Susan is very pet friendly.
Susan was great! We've never left our dog any where before and she made this process so easy. We loved seeing the pictures during her "vacation". Our high energy puppy came home well tired out from all the playing with the new friends she made. Thank you so much!

This was our dog, Bear's third time to stay with Susan. He was so happy tosee her and her pups when we dropped him off. Will look forward to his next stay with her! !
Our dog was actually depressed for a couple of days after leaving Susan's play house for dogs! He loved it there - playing with the other dogs and Susan. Thank you, Susan!
Awesome as always! My wife and I trust Susan with our pups whenever we leave town. They are safe and happy and we can relax knowing Susan is taking excellent care of them.
Susan sent daily updates and really tried to get Dixie and Murl to come out of their shells.
Susan was great, our dogs stayed with her for two nights and when we picked them up they were happy and very tired from all the fun they had. She sent us frequent updates throughout their stay, as well as getting in touch with us prior to the visit. We felt confident leaving our pups with Susan and her family. I would highly recommend her and we intend on using her again in the future.

We've taken our dog Maxie to Susan several times and are always happy to do so. She does an excellent job of taking care of Maxie and has never given us reason for complaint. It's great to be able to have the peace of mind we have when we go on trips, knowing our dog is in good hands. I would definitely recommend Susan to any pet owner looking for someone to take care of their pets attention and love.

This was my first time using Doggy Vacay. Susan was very helpful and even walked me through some of the process. Her response time was very quick and also very helpful. I have two dogs. One 8 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback and a 1 year old deaf English Bull Terrier. We received numerous pictures and updates assuring our pups were happy and safe. When I picked them up they both worn out from all the fun they had. I will be using Susan again when I leave town. The personal attention my dogs received was by far better than anything you would expect out of 'boarding'. The dogs had access to a large fencened in back yard any time they wanted. In the pictures I noticed that Susan was with the dogs at all times and they weren't left unsupervised. This too was very comforting. Overall great experience. I would recommend Susan to anyone.

Susan was good at communicating with me about drop-off and pick-up, she had the house set up well for keeping dogs. Sandy seemed happy with the other dogs when I dropped her off and picked her up. Sandy must have gotten a lot of play and exercise while there because she slept a lot after I brought her home.

Sorry, but I would have never left him if I knew they were smokers. And I felt sorry for the baby inside the house
I felt really good leaving my senior dog at Susan's. He was well taken care of and made some new friends. She was really great to let us know how we was doing during his stay too. Would definitely use her again.
My dogs were scared to death at first. Susan and her family and welcoming home settled my dogs down very quickly. I felt so good that they were safe and cared for here! Great at her job!
This was the first time that we left our dog with anyone other than family, so we were really nervous. Susan and her family made the experience a happy one! Her communication was top notch and helped put our worries to rest while on our vacation. Pepper will definitely be visiting again.

My dog has been staying with Susan and her family for nearly a year now on a weekly basis. My dog views them as part of his pack now and he couldn't be happier. He's excited when he knows it's time to go to her house. My dog is well cared for and they are genuinely happy to see him each day. Susan is extremely flexible, which was a necessity with my frequent work travel. I never have to worry if I'm running late or if my schedule changes at the last minute. She is dependable as a rock and she allows me to focus on work and not how my dog is doing at home. My dog and I couldn't be happier!

Dottie's stay with Susan is always wonderful. She always has playmates and comes home pooped.
Once again Susan and her family were wonderful! Every time she sends me pictures of my babies all curled up with her! They love going to Susan's and all they want to do is sleep when they come home since they play so hard at her home!
Very Good!!
She is wonderful! My two dogs stayed with Susan for 5 nights and they looked like they never missed me.
This is Cappuccino's second time at Susan's place.I feel really comfortable leaving him there! She's very loving !
Beau seems to have had a good visit...his second. Slept like a baby when we got home, always a good sign. Thanks Susan, and our boy will be back in a couple of weeks while we cruise!
Susan and her family were just amazing with my babies! I was a little worried as they can be so hyper but they got along great with her other dogs and she even texted me pictures throughout their stay! I will use Susan again for sure..I am beyond satisfied with the care she provided for my furbabies!

Susan is the best dog sitter in Humble! Chloe and Jaxon loved there time at Susan's with her family and other dogs. They especially enjoyed the doggie door with free access to the backyard. Susan sent us pictures during our vacation and was always available via text with quick responses. Jax and Chloe played so much they slept the whole day after we picked them up! Susan will take great care of your pups and I love the fact that someone is always at home and they are not stuck in cages like at the kennel. We will definetly be using Susan again!

Lovely backyard for Molly to explore and enjoy.
Clarabelle (Maltise) and Elliemae (Westie) were of course happy to see us after a week away.. However, I think they also missed Susan and her other K9s staying or living with her. Will definately use her again if she will will have my spoiled girls. They are both divas.

Noelle had a great time with Ms. Susan. I've used her before and always have a good experience.
Susan was great. This was our dogs first time away. When we left her, she was not happy with the other dogs in the house and was very vocal about it. So much so, we had to put her in her crate. By the time we picked Nika up, there were a couple more dogs there and Nika was socializing with them and seemed quite happy. I don't know how Susan did it but I'm glad Nika spent her Vacay w/Susan. Best ever!!!

Beau was a happy boy at Susan's, although he was sure ready to come home to some "peace and quiet"! All considered the home environment, even with lots of doggy competition, was way better than the sterile kennel environment he has experienced. And the price is right.
Thanks, Susan. We'll be back!

was very please with Susan, She is very nice and sweet to my dog. She send pics of him everyday I would definitely recommend her.
Olivia was very happy with Susan and had fun playing with other doggies. We had a problem with our flights coming home and had to extend her stay with very short notice. Susan was very accommodating.
Zoey enjoyed her stay with Susan!
Awesome as always! Ms. Susan takes very good care of our furry babies.
Susan and family were so great for our dog. He's a bit shy around strangers but really bonded with the household while there. The house is perfect for dogs, they have a doggie door and a large backyard. Susan sends daily photos and updates that let you know how he's doing. This has been his most enjoyable stay away from home!

Great affordable dog care for my pups! Left them with Susan for a week and they seemed to have a blast with her, would definitely use Susan again.
I received several texts per day of pics and captions of my dog and how she was doing.

House smelled a bit like cigarette smoke, so if your pet has an allergy you might not be able to have them stay here. My dog has several allergies but was just fine, and happy, when I picked her up!

It was like she went and spent some time with family. No kennel cough and no allergic reaction to eating something she wasn't supposed to. Great experience at this home!

I absolutely loved Sharon. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Her entire family made Drizzy feel comfortable and I received pictures from her showing how happy my dog was. She's so kind and loving with the animals she takes care of.
My boys were well taken care of by Susan. She is really laid back, helpful and accommodating. She texted pictures of my dogs while they were there. My boys were allowed to roam around the living room and go out as they wanted since she has a doggie door. I would use her services again.

Susan takes great care of our two dogs while we travel!
Our Pickle truly had her own vacation at Susan's house while we were away on ours. She had fun
beagling inside the house as well as outside in the shaded backyard. Susan sent us pictures every
other day showing Pickle enjoying herself. We
were able to have a great time on our vacation
knowing that Pickle was safe and happy. It was
also a plus for us that Susan's house is close
to Bush Intercontinental Airport. We would
love to have Susan take care of our dogs
the next time we go on vacation.

We have a new little furry baby joining Sparkle and Biscuit this time around and she was as happy and very well taken care of. We are always blessed to have Ms. Susan and her family to watch over them while we're away.
Our babies are so well taken care of at Ms. Susan's! She and her family is our furry babies' second home. I will always highly recommend her services to anyone looking for an awesome family to care for your pets.
We are blessed to have a second home for our furry babies in case we need to be out of town.
Susan was very concerned about caring for our 16 year old dog and her needs, as she now requires extra care and supervision due to her age and condition. Misty did just fine, however, and came home without any signs of heightened anxiety. We really appreciated her willingness to take on the challenge that Misty presents. We would not hesitate to board her with Susan again.

Susan and her family were wonderful with my little dogs! They had a great time. I can tell that Susan and her family love dogs! I'm so happy that I found this service.
Susan is a great person. Thank you Susan for taking care of Trixie.
My dog came back with fleas and was filled with cigarette smoke. I will not recommend this place. The only good thing was regular update pics . I feel sorry for my dog.
Susan took great care of our 2 dogs. She sent me pictures daily and kept me updated throughout our vacation. They came back happy!
My dogs thoroughly enjoyed their stay with Susan and her family. I felt they were very well cared for and was able to relax and enjoy my vacation. I would definitely recommend Susan and will return in the future!
Our dogs had a wonderful vacation with Susan. V Susan sent us daily updates and pictures which is very comforting. We will definatley use Susan next time we r going out of town.
Thank you Susan and Family for taking such good care of our very active girl. She have a great vacation.
Susan was very sweet and the dogs were happy when we picked them up.
Susan took great care of my dogs and I loved the daily pictures.
Thankful to have Sparkle & Biscuit a second home to stay in when we're away. :)
Our furry babies had a BLAST staying with Ms. Susan and her family. The pictures we received everyday showed that Sparkle and Biscuit had so much fun during their own "vacation" while we were out of town. We will definitely consider Ms. Susan the next time we will need help with the furry babies. :)

With booking @ the last minute and a few changes on my end, Susan was absolutely wonderful and very accommodating. She has dogs of her own and a yard; so if your dog is of need of social interaction and plenty room to run, book with Susan. Updates are provided daily and your dogs are in good hands. Looking forward to the next stay.

Susan was great. The meet and greet went well. Her back yard and house are very dog friendly. She sent me pictures of my dog and he was receiving alot of attention and I was very pleased. I will definitely come back she was close to where I stay and I'm so glad I used the doggie vacay web site to find a home instead of a kennel and the price was reasonable.
