About susan

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I are both retirees with a love for dogs. We have taken care of dogs for 20+ year and we have been with Dogvacay for three years We live in a home with a fenced and doggy safe yard. We take our guest for a two mile walk every day. Because we only take two dogs at one time that gives us time to walk, play and cuddle with our special guests. We know how it feels when you have to leave your pet behind for any reason. We will take good care of them and give them all the love and attention your pet deserves. We do have one restriction, we will not take dogs that have not been neutered, unfortunately, we have had previous destructive behavior because of this.

I felt so comfortable leaving our Golden Retriever with Susan. It was like she was at home. Susan even let her sleep on the couch!
Susan and Mike (you get two dog lovers and caregivers...a real bonus!) made our nine-month-old puppy feel right at home. It was the first time she had ever stayed away from us and they took wonderful care of her. When we returned to leave Sasha for her second VaCay at their home, she couldn't wait to get out of the car and ran straight toward the front door! The house and yard are immaculate and Susan & Mike are warm, kind, genuine and very accommodating to their "vacationers" needs!
I'm very comfortable living my dog Nikki here. They always take good care of her and her special needs.
Rusty had a great time with Mike. He was very well cared for. Happy to see me when I picked him up, but not crazy wild. A good sign.
Kopi had a great time!! Thank you guys so much!
Susan and Mike are like having family watch your pet. They are very accommodating to your pet's needs, and genuinely care for them. Very nice people, home and yard is a home away from home for your pet. kbaird---hank's mom
Susan was wonderful with our one and a half year old yellow Lab. we wii be using here again. She is highly recommended. Thank you Susan
Top-notch! Susan and Mike are conscientious and responsive, pleasant to deal with and accommodating, and shared pictures and insight about the stay. Very happy to have found them and would recommend them to anyone seeking hands on, personal attention.
Susan was a great host for my dog. She was able and willing to take my pet on short notice. I would recommend her highly.
Our Lily had a blast at Susan's over the three days. They have a great yard to run around in and play. She came home happy and exhausted, perfect for our puppy. I would highly recommend booking with Susan!!
This is the first time leaving Riley with a family we usually take him to a kennel. He had a great time playing with the other dogs at Susan's. And Susan and Mike took excellent care of him. We wIll definitely book with them again.
Susan and Mike are wonderful hosts. I could not have asked for more! We'll be back!
This was the first time that we left Bentley with people he didn't know. Susan and Mike were great! They took Bentley in and treated him like he was their own! I highly recommend them!
I would recommend Susan and Mike with complete confidence. They put my uncertainties at ease and will request them again without hesitation. Thank you Susan and Mike!
Wonderful people, took very good care of my aging little pug. highly recommend!
I never thought that I would feel completely comfortable with anyone watching my 10 year old black lab (Raven) but I was wrong. Susan and Mike are a dream come true. They really made feel comfortable with their warm, calm and peaceful home. Raven was so happy when I picked her up, she didn't want to leave Susan's side. Raven is a rescue and has a bit of separation anxiety ... but she bonded with Susan almost immediately which made me feel very comfortable. I really felt that they truly loved the time Raven was there. I didn't want to leave such a great review because I want to keep Susan and Mike all to myself ... but I will say that they are the best dog sitters that anyone will ever find. Raven has more visits in the next few months with Susan and Mike and I can now rest assure that she will be safe and happy .. thanks to both of them.
Top notch experience from start to finish. Lovely caring folks, I think my dog wanted to stay longer! We will definitely book with them again. Thanks sooo much for taking such great care of our dog.
Mike and Susan are tops. They do a great job caring for Lexie. We never worry when Lexie is with them.
My dog Cali had a great time at Susan's! Cali was welcomed with open arms and I could tell she was at ease as soon as she walked in to Susan's. I was able to be at ease all day because I knew Cali was in good hands. I will definitely book again with Susan :)
Alvin loved staying with Susan during our vacation, he was well treated and they have the perfect place for dog sitting, it was like a week long play date for our dog. Lots of playtime, walks and running around ! Would definitely recommend, thanks so much!!!
Stella had a great time with Susan!!!!
Susan was very responsive to preliminary questions, which I liked. They have a nice sized, secure, yard. I will definitely have Susan and her husband host Tiki on future trips.
This was our first experience with Dog Vacay and it went very well! Our dog Georgie was happy and content when we picked her up. Susan was great to send us pictures during the stay, and we felt very comfortable throughout the whole experience. Thank you Susan and Mike!
You know you found a good fit when your dog walks back to say goodbye to them as you are getting in the car to leave. Couldn't have asked for a better review!!
Susan and her husband were terrific. Cody came home very happy and enjoyed his vacation. I will definitely use Susan again!
Very pleased. Everything went well with one minor exception; missing dog harness. Emailed photos clearly demonstrated that Moose was a happy camper. Will return for further stays.
Lexie usually hates to go to other homes, but she was so excited when she realized where she was. That shows that she loves Susan and Mike. Thank you for taking great care of Lexie. Darnelle
Monty had another great time at Susan and Mikes house-they are great people and have taken good care of him for me...and he likes to play with Sadie!
Susan and Mike are awesome, as usual!
We booked with Susie's Dog House for our two week honeymoon and it was the best decision we made! We never once worried about our fur-baby! Susan kept us updated and sent a few adorable pics. Mike was so kind to take our dog on some play dates & also took him on plenty of walks. Both Susan and Mike have a passion for taking care of other's dogs and certainly go above taking great care of our Doodles! Thanks guys you are wonderful! ??????
Susie's dog house was great. I thought Charlie would not want to come home. We will absolutely bring our four legged family member to them again.
Freya seemed to have a great time and I was very happy with everything! Thank you :)
Susan and Mike care for our pet like we would. We love that their home is safe for Lucky and is completely gated so that she can explore outdoors as well. Lucky also gets along well with Sadie, Susan and Mike's dog who always greets Lucky like an old friend. We tried other homes and kennels. However, we feel so comfortable with Susan and Mike we could not imagine going anywhere else.
Susan and Mike are awesome! Bodie feels right at home.
Susan and Mike are very nice and kind people. They have a real love for dogs and I had peace knowing Monty was in good hands and well taken care of. They have a wonderful and safe environment for dogs and Susan sent me pictures of Monty while I was gone and it was good to see him having fun with their dog Sadie! They even gave him a toy when I picked him up! I would highly recommend them to anyone! Monty will definitely be coming back! Love and Licks from Monty!
Spike was so happy to see Susan, Mike, and Sadie again! He barely said good-bye to us, just sauntered in their house and never looked behind. What a testament to how comfortable and loved he feels there! We feel so lucky to have found such a wonderful couple to take care of Spike.
Susan and Mike were so wonderful to our dog Spike. They really made him feel at home and cared for him like one of their own. They sent me updates and pictures which helped lessen any anxiety on my part, because Spike was comfortable in their home right away! Even though he was happy to see us, he didn't seem like he was in any hurry to leave.... Thanks so much Susan and Mike, you are the best!
Susan and Mike are terrific dog lovers. I can leave Lexie there and not have a worry at all. Lexie is so excited to return. \
The PERFECT host as always. My dog kids are always very well taken care of at Susan, Mike & Sadie's home. Already planning our next getaway now that we have found the best dog sitters!
This was my first time using Susan and Bodie seemed happy and content when we picked him up. Susan and her husband seem to have a true love for the dogs. Bodie will be back!
Domino stayed with Susan, Sadie & Mike and had a blast! I knew they would be a good fit for her when we meet them for a meet & greet and when we were leaving Domino broke away from the car and ran back to their yard!! The yard and wrap-around patio is great, as was the doggy door so she could come and go as she pleased. The house was so dog-friendly-toys, blankets, and lots of love were everywhere. I appreciated that they kept her stimulated (she's a young dog) with playtime and visiting other dogs. I'll definitely use Susan & Mike again.
I have a blind dog and one that came from a very mistreated home, it is comforting to know that my special kids are in the safe, loving & comfortable environment of Susan, Mike & their sweet Sadie.
As long as their door is open, they will always be their doggie sitters!
Susan was great with Jake! Thanks for keeping my boy safe while I was out of town!
Susan and Mike were very easy to work with. They eased our turmoil by agreeing to work with our regular host in filling in for days that he couldn't cover. The meet-and-greet went great with Zoe being comfortable with Susan and Sadie and with their house. We were very comfortable leaving Zoe with Susan. When we returned for our vacation, we were happy to hear that the experience went well for everyone. We look forward to booking again with them.
Blu had such a good time with Susan
Absolutely wonderful!!!
We can't thank Susan and Mike enough. Our dog Ivy was in great hands!! We look forward to our next trip and leaving our Ivy with them. Thanks again!
We're thrilled and Lexie loves staying with Susan, Mike and Sadie.
Susan and Mike treated my dog extremely well and I felt comfortable leaving him in their care. I will call on them again and would highly recommend them to anyone.
What a gift to find a couple who loves your dog as much as you do! Susan and Mike loved our Lexie and so did their Sadie. They even took Lexie to Laguna where Lexie could hear people brag about her! After our meet and greet, Lexie was happy to return to stay with Mike and Susan. Since their dog was age 7 and could not keep up with a boxer pup, they took Lexie to visit a very playful neighbor poodle where Lexie got to do what she loves - play, play, play. We've all ready booked Lexie for next month with Susan and Mike. Lexie loved their awesome yard.
A wonderful stay once again! Deuce & Sadie Rose were very excited to see their doggie host, Sadie again who takes great care of them when they are in her home! Can't thank her enough! I'm sure they'll be back!
Susan and Mike did a great job watching our 2 spoiled dogs. They were very calm when we got them home so you can tell they had a lot of TLC.
Planning a vacation is difficult enough, although trying to find the perfect dog sitter is the most challenging! I could not leave without knowing that they were in a safe and loving environment. I found that with Susan and Mike and their sweet dog, Sadie. I now know that when I plan my next trip, they will be in good hands.
AAA+++ Our pup was super happy, and so were we! Susan and Mike could not be any nicer and we felt that Houdini was a part of their family while staying with them. We will definitely use them again and again!!!
They are fabulous.....Buster loves them!!
