About Susan

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Mike and I have over 30 years experience as dog owners and dog sitters. We do not mind taking care of special needs dogs or elderly dogs. Both of us are retired. Sue is an animal shelter volunteer and we foster shelter dogs on an as needed basis. We do not foster at the same time we would take care of your dog. We only take in one dog at a time, two if they are from the same family. We have a fully fenced in yard and a large park down the street. Your dog will be treated as one of the family.

This review is late, but better late than never... Sue and Mike are awesome!!! They took wonderful care of my dog again while I was out of town for a couple weeks. I can't say enough good things about them. It makes me so happy to leave my dog with someone that I know is taking great care of her. Sue sent me pics of my dog relaxing on the couch and out in the yard with them. I know that my dog loves them because she is hesitant to leave their house when I pick her up!

Susan was great. Nice fenced-in yard. Very caring with our senior dog. Great communication.
The Spa was perfect for my dog while we were away for a week on spring break.
I have a timid breeder rescue with some health issues. Sue provided a peaceful home with care and love. She is a great communicator as well. We will definitely be using her again.

Susan was wonderful. It was obvious from our first meet and greet that she loved dogs. Cooper is 12 years old Labradoodle and was a bit nervous at first. Susan let him go through her entire house and smell every room. She treated Cooper as if he was her own dog. I picked up a very happy and content dog who had been loved and cared for. When I need dog care again I would not hesitate to contact Susan again. Wonderful experience.

We can't say enough great things about Sue and Mike! It was apparent from our first meet and greet that they were "dog people". Mickey was a stray and while he's come a long way he still has some anxiety and trust issues with people he doesn't know. Sue and Mike were patient and understanding. They voluntarily followed the routine we have set in place for Mickey, but they also treated Mickey as if he was their own. We picked up a very happy and content dog who had obviously grown to love Sue and Mike in one short week. There's no question we'll be using them in the future!

Once again, Susan and Mike took excellent of Maxie. They are the most gracious and accomodating parents for Maxie. Maxie is an older dog we adopted and she was a stray; requiring a little bit of extra TLC - and Susan and Mike give her the most loving home I could ever hope for. She loves her stays!!! Maxie had an awesome vacation at Susan and Mike's!!!

Sue and Mike were wonderfully patient with my old beagle girl who is, shall we say, a bit high maintenance. It has been tough to find a boarding situation for her since she has some separation anxiety issues and is not fond of other dogs. This was a perfect fit, since only one dog is boarded at a time, and Sue is retired and able to give the dog lots of attention. A great find!

Susan was absolutely wonderful with Maxie. Maxie was a stray and is an older dog needing special TLC; Susan is very patient and loving with Maxie! Also, Susan is very flexible regarding dropping off and picking up times; and an extra bonus, all of Maxie's things are sparkling clean when we pick her up! I can't say enough good things about Susan and Mike and their care of Maxie. Maxie had an awesome vacation!

This was the third time Maxie stayed at Sue's for a vacation. Sue and Mike were wonderful 'parents' for Maxie again. Maxie was right at home at immediately. Sue even washed a rug after Maxie was a little 'upset' over a thunderstorm - so thoughtful. Sue is very flexible about dropping off and picking up arrangements which is very much appreciated. I highly recommend Sue and Mike, they are fantastic and do not have other dogs; so their focus was only on Maxie.

I was SO worried about leaving my dog for 8 nights. My dog is very timid and doesn't do well in new environments with people she doesn't know. But Sue made me feel very comfortable, and was so good with my dog. She has a very calm, quiet house which I knew would be best for my dog. She emailed me updates and a pic of my dog and let me know she was fine. She let my dog hang out with her and her husband on their couch, and even let her sleep in bed between them! She made it very easy for me to relax and enjoy my vacation. I think my dog liked them so much, she didn't want to leave when I picked her up! I would definitely recommend this host, and will use her again in the future!!!

Susan is awesome. She had spoiled our dog rotten. He totally enjoyed his vacation and was very relaxed and calm when I went to pick him up. He wasn't too anxious to see me, more like - "oh it's you.. you kind of ruining our couch leisure break here..."
Overall, the dog seemed to be happy and not stressed - so that's most important part... Would leave the dog again with her and recommend this sitter to everyone. She really knows what's she is doing and very accommodating. I was running late to pick up the dog after my flight came late and they misplaced my baggage and Susan was OK with my late arrival.

Susan and Mike were wonderful parents for Maxie; catering to her every need. Maxie is an older rescue dog and is nervous in new environments. Susan took excellent care of her; even taking her out in the middle of night until Maxie felt more at home. I especially like that Susan does not watch multiple dogs; as Maxie needed more attention and does not warm up to other animals readily. Susan sent photos of Maxie looking out the window at the birds and squirrels (her favorite pass-time as a German Shorthair). Maxie was 'well-walked' and played with by Susan and Mike. She loved the fenced in back yard, again with all the birds, squirrels, and nooks & crannys to investigate! I will absolutely call Susan the next time we need a home-away-from-home for Maxie.
