About susan

24 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am 56 years old; a music teacher ,and my own children have 4 legs and fur.
I have never been without a dog!
In my house the dogs own it...I just rent.
I have been a foster mom for Michigan Anti-Cruelty Society for 11 years. I have fallen in love with, and rehabilitated so many incredible creatures, and they...me!
Although I have taught children for 33 years, and love children,I prefer dogs (shh).
I will love your pet as my very own for the time that it is with me.
We'll have so much fun with play time, movie time, nap time, snack time, and in the summer, pool time!

I'm thrilled to find Susan! Missy bonded with her quickly and never seemed stressed at being away from me. Susan sent me pictures so I could see Missy playing and snuggling and happy. I highly recommend Susan.
Susan was amazing! She was incredibly responsive before and throughout my dog's stay with her and asked lots of insightful questions so that she understood Bryn's normal schedule and behaviors. She went out of her way to make sure that Bryn was in a comfortable, normal routine while we were gone. She sent lots of cute pictures and video updates and I always felt at peace knowing Bryn was safe and happy! Susan even did arts and crafts time with the dogs, so we had a little paw print present to come home to :) I felt 100% certain that my pup was in great hands while I was gone and we are already planning to book Bryn a stay with Susan for our next vacation in a couple of months!
My dog had an EXCELLENT experience with Sue! We will definitely be back!
Susan was absolutely AMAZING! This was my first time leaving my baby with anyone so I was nervous but Susan made me feel comfortable during our Meet and Greet. The entire vacation, she kept me in the loop with photos and texts so I was able to relax, assured that Christy was having a good time. The report card and art project just cracks me up every time I look at it. I will absolutely book Susan again and often!
Our experience with Susan was fantastic. Ebony had a wonderful time. The genuine warmth and love for dogs is great. We will be sending Ebony over quite often. Thanks Dog Vacay.☺
Susan and her pack were WONDERFUL! I got updates on vacation (including pictures) and a full report card upon return. Bailey had a great time....I was afraid she wouldn't want to come home. She did, but was so worn out from all the fun she slept a full day. That's OK - she needed it! I'll definitely be booking again with Susan. On second thought, maybe I shouldn't provide such a positive review....I don't want her to get TOO popular!!
Sue far exceeded our hopes and expectations. Through Sue's updates, we could see that our dog was in loving hands. On our next trip, we would definitely use Sue. She is outstanding!
Our Gracie was right at home during her time at Susan's. I received pictures, and videos, a darling art project and even a report card. Susan clearly has a love and gentle heart for animals. I was at such ease knowing Gracie was being so loved. I recommend her 200x over!
Susan makes you feel that she sincerely loves dogs. She gives our dog the kind of attention we give her at home. I know she does this withh all dogs. Of this I'm certain.
I should write a terrible review so I can be sure Sue is always available for my two. Seriously I'm so happy to have someone this wonderful look after my other kids!
Susan was great. She is so energetic and wonderful. Our dog had a great stay and immediately felt at home. Susan keep me up to date on Rocky's visit and was prompt in answering my inquiries both before and during the visit. We will definitely be back!
Lambo had a great time at Susan's place, playfully having a great time with the other dogs there too. She sent updates on how Lambo was doing and even wrote a report card writing down all in detail of what Lambo did while he was there.
I would definitely recommend!!
Thank you Susan!! ^_^
Susan is fantastic! She cares so much for her canine residents and has lots of energy and insight into their behavior and needs. She updated us while we were gone and made us smile each time. We have booked two future vacations with her already!
Sue is amazing with my skiddish dog, Seven! He honestly doesn't warm up to people quickly and I am absolutely stunned by how he took to her! I plan on booking her for all my dog sitting needs. My dog has a very specific diet and medication and Sue took care of everything without missing a beat. I will be recommending anyone needing dogsitters to her, she is the dog whisper to all those dogs who needs that extra care to feel at home! We are so glad to have found her!
I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Sue made my dog Tank feel right at home. He stayed for three nights and didn't want to leave. She took him for many walks, played with him a ton (sent great videos and pictures of them playing together and with other dogs daily while I was away), she even let Tank sleep in her bed with her just like he does at home! When I picked him up she gave me very detailed reports of his daily activities, mood, and eating habits for each day he stayed with her. She also made Tank healthy homemade treats which of course he loved! Sue even took the time to make me a clay pawprint of Tanks paw as a present for when I returned. She gave Tank a lot of attention. I was very lucky to find Sue and that she was able to watch my little Tankers on such short notice. Sue, thank you so much again and we will see you soon. Tank says he misses you sooo much and thank you for such an awesome fun-filled weekend!
Susan is just wonderful! She is a true dog lover and was wonderful with Brody! We will be coming back! She gave use a report card with a detailed account on how Brody did and sent us pictures during his stay. She even did some crafts with him!
Susan was an incredible host for our two dogs! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a very warm, loving experience for their pets. One of our dogs is very arthritic and Sue gave her "puppy" massages and had no problem managing her medications. Our other dog loved to snuggle with Sue and got along very well with her own dog. She was very knowledgeable about dog behavior and I trusted her completely to care for our babies. Thanks Sue!!! Our dogs had a terrific time with you and we will definitely see you again soon!
Sue is wonderful! A true dog lover, and the experience she has with fostering dogs helps so much because she has seen all types of dogs and knows how to handle any situation. Her energy is so good our Jake felt so comfortable with her at our Meet-n-Greet I knew he would be fine. Jake has a lot of issues that most people do not want to deal with, not Sue! She handled him with no problem and was sad to seem him go and wants him to come back. I am booking his next Vacay now!
Sue was incredible in her skills of working with Remmy, who is a fully trained Service Dog who was delighted with her beautiful fenced back yard and beautiful home. She is a teacher who manages her dogs as a teacher, so you receive a report card on the dog, a wonderful paw print in plaster-of-paris mold. WE have used kennels and WILL NEVER do this again!! Remmy has traveled now more than 11 countires, and attends conference and events. Sue was INCREDIBLE. She even baked homemade cookies for Remmy (and myself!).
