About Susan

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I offer your pet a safe caring environment !

I am retired and living the good life with my loving Mini Schnauzer, Pepper, who loves to have company.

Our home is located in a beautiful guard gated country club. Pepper & I have a large fenced backyard. Your baby will find it to be great for running, chasing balls or relaxing.

Additionally we have many interesting trails for our daily walks.

For the last 50 years I have had many dogs, cats and horses. They have been wonderful companions and loving family members.

It would be difficult to imagine life without a furry friend in the house.
Pepper and I would love to have your precious baby join us in our home.

We have a flexible schedule which allows us to adjust to your doggie's needs.

Hoping to have you come stay with us soon.

Maggie stayed with Susan for 12 days I think. She had a great time with Susan and the other pups!
Susan was a great dog sitter. She provided all the comforts of home for Oda. He was allowed access to her couches, took nice walks & had fun playtime. She is truly a dog lover & took care of him as we would. Definitely would use her again. 10 stars!!
Susan was great! We have two Italian Greyhounds and they can be a little high maintenance but Susan seemed to handle them with grace! She sent us pic often to check in with us and she responded quickly to our inquiries. When we picked up our little critters they seemed very comfortable and not at all anxious as they often are when I pick them up from doggie daycare... thanks again Susan for allowing us to have a more worry free vacation!
Our dog had so much fun, we really appreciated the daily photos and updates. A great place that is less stressful for our fury children. Thank you for taking such good care of him.
Coco is a little rescue, and a very nervous chihuahua, but she is making such great progress since we got her, so it was important that we found a pet sitter that would make CoCo feel safe and secure. CoCo loves her Time with Susan, she even starts yelping to get into Susan's gate. Susan's home is very Clean and safe, and the backyard is huge, with lots of space to run and Play. We couldn't be happier that we found Susan.
Susan is wonderful!! We will leave our dogs with her anytime we need a sitter. Ryan
We were VERY pleased with the care our puppies received from Susan. The frequent pictures and comments showed us and assured us that our "girls" were having a happy and safe time while we were away. They hardly knew us when we returned--they were so content at Susan's house!!
Susan was great! Maggie was happy and healthy when I picked her up after 10 days of Summer Camp with Susan. She seemed to like the long-term stay with several other smaller dogs who were also staying with Susan the week we went away. Susan was attentive to her needs as a senior dog, and I felt confident knowing that she was in good hands.
From the first moment we walked into Susan's, we knew it was a good fit for our 6 lb, senior Yorkie. Susan was accommodating for Sprocket's special needs. When we picked him up, I could tell he had been a happy camper. I highly recommend Susan's service.
We had a wonderful experience with Susan! She had our little Gambino feeling and making himself at home right away. We could tell he had a great time! We will definitely be using her services again. Her dog Pepper is very sweet too.
Great dog sitter. Lots of treats!
Wonderful person, Susan provided out pets love and care. I will use her services again for sure. I recommend her to all people that may need their pet taken care of it!
If there was a 6 STAR Susan would get it!
She and "Pepper" hosted out two little ones for three nights. From the daily photos she sent me, I think they all had a terrific time.

I will definitely have Susan sit for us again and highly recommend her,
We found Suan to be very warm, welcoming & easy to communicate with. We appreciated all the pictures $ messages she sent us. Very reassuring to see Ginger & how she was fitting into Susan's home. Ginger got lots of walks & outside play. We would happily let Ginger visit again.
Thank you Susan
Susan is excellent and very caring to our dog. We would not leave her with anyone else ever. We are so happy to know Susan and we have total peace of mind when our dog is in her care.
Susan was terrific. Asa, our 14-year-old shepherd mix, took to her immediately. When we came to pick him up, he was pleased to see us--but none of the usual whimpering to complain about our absence.
Susie & Pepper were very good with Beezley, who is almost 10, and has only ever overnighted or had daycare with Grands. He has Separation Anxiety ( Or maybe we do?!) He was exited to see us, but definitely not super stressed. We were pleased and relieved we finally have suitable doggie care.
Susan was an outstanding host to our Emmylou. Our Emmylou is terribly afraid of thunder and lightening. The day of her stay at Susan's started off sunny and cloudless ....but things definitely changed drastically later in the day. Susan was wonderful - calming and soothing our Emmylou until the storm passed. We are so thankful to Susan.
Susan and Pepper were wonderful! My little girl had a big beautiful smile when I picked her up. I knew she had a great time. Susan was very easy to reach and promptly responded to my texts. She sent daily pictures. Susan was also very flexible with drop off and pick up time.
Even though my doggy's stay was for one night, I came back to some happy pups! Definitely going to continue using Dog Vacay services! Thanks Susan!
Susan is 5 star all the way. We felt very relaxed leaving Wrigley with Susan, especially after see the pictures she sent showing how comfortable Wrigley was in her home.
Susan was great! Kaylee was a very happy pooch when we returned from our trip (maybe even a little spoiled;). I received frequent updates including photos throughout our trip. Susan even made homemade doggie treats which still continue to be very popular. Will definetly use again!
