About Susan

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Located just 19 miles south of Shreveport.

Hi! My name is Susan and I Love dogs! I have a little over one acre fenced backyard for doggie adventures. Air conditioned Dog friendly "doggie cabin" out back and my home is also open to dogs with a large doggie door. Carly Sue and I start our day with a Belly rubbin' ( Coffee for me) and then a walk around the backyard to chase off birds, squirrels and the occasional rabbit and to take care of "Business". After that it's breakfast time, Carly Sue likes scrambled eggs - but only gets them once a week. I get that sad look when I give her real dog food. After breakfast it's usually nap time for Carly Sue ( at my feet or in her recliner ) while I sew. I own my own business sewing custom made clothing from home, so I'm almost always home. I do my best to never leave home while I have "Doggie House Guests". After her nap it's outside again , Carly Sue plays while I do yard work, unless she cons me into playing too! That happens a lot. Then it's back inside for a snack and another nap. Did I mention Carly Sue is LAZY! We spends lots of time playing outdoors weather permitting. Carly Sue and I love company. We promise to love and care for your pet just as you would. Our home is also minutes from the local veterinary Clinic in Stonewall, La.
I have been a loving dog owner for over 25 years. I bred and raised yellow Labradors for many years. During which time I administered all oral medications and injections.

Susan was a great host to our 2 spoiled Babies. She listened attentively and fed them the special food that had to be thawed out each day. They got lots of attention as she is there all the time, and we enjoyed seeing the pictures she sent. We are very pleased with her service.

Susan is awesome and takes great care of our "boys". We never worry about them when they are with her. She's great about sending pics.
Our Rotti's birthday is Feb. 14th and when we dropped them off she had remembered and had a present (tennis ball) for him. She is so thoughtful & caring.
Both our boys are afraid of fireworks so we were worried about leaving them on the New Year but we knew they were in as good of hands with Susan as if they were with us. She is so special. We are so lucky to have found her.
Our "boys" love going to see Ms. Susan and we love having someone who cares so much and takes such good care of them.
Susan is the greatest. I wish all 4 legged parents could be lucky enough to have a Susan in their life.
Susan T was awesome and shows she really cares for the dogs. The facilities were outstanding. Odin had so much fun and playtime that he has been sleeping the last couple days he has been back from being worn out. Would highly recommend, she was very close to us and we were able to enjoy our weekend without worrying about how Odin was doing.

Charlie had a great time at Dog VaCay! Susan kept me in the loop daily with texts and photos to let me know how he was doing. Her great outside area and extra attention was truly like Charlie had gone to visit "grandmother" and gave me peace of mind.
Will definitely book Charlie there the next time I need dog sitting.

Susan is a very knowledgeable sitter and took very good care of my dog.
Awesome place for dogs. 45 min drive from South Bossier. Totally worth it for extended stays.
I am so happy to have found somewhere I truly trust leaving my baby! I could tell he had a wonderful time and Ms.Susan truly cared for him. I also appreciate all of the picture updates that help put your mind at ease seeing them running around having fun! I have finally found the perfect place to board my baby!

Susan and her daughter were wonderful with our dog. We got updates almost daily and every picture our dog had a smile on her face. Ive used overnight kennels in the past and each time we got our dog back she would not eat and appeared depressed. Not any more, we have found a home away from home for Lehua.

Susan is so good with Moo Cow, I wouldn't want her to leave her with anyone else! There is so much room for her to run and play, she never wants to leave! Susan cares and gives Moo Cow the TLC she needs while I'm away. Moo will be visiting again very soon!! Thank you for everything and being so wonderful!

We have our rescued Lab Bella staying over with Susan for a week when we left town for a trip. Oh, mine, I think our Bella is having a vacation of her own. We appreciated all the photos/text updates she send to us and the peace of mind we have while we were away. Thank you Susan.

Everything about Susan and Tom's Cloud is wonderful!! I am so thankful I have such a great place that I can take Moo Cow and know that she's in the best hands! The amount of room my dog has to roam around in, plus the constant attention and love Susan gives the animals is beyond any other dog boarding facility you will find anywhere! Moo cow cannot wait until her next stay with Susan and the crew!

Awesome experience! We had never boarded our dog, Willie, or left him with anyone other than family, so I was pretty nervous/anxious to say the least! Susan reassured all of my worries! There was plenty of room for him to run and play and was never put in a kennel!! So happy we found Susan!! She even let him stay inside with her! We received picture updates frequently which made me feel even better about our decision!! Would recommend her to anyone and will definitely use her again!!

"Sweetie" LOVES for us to leave town and let Miss Susan spoil her! She obviously knows where she is when we leave her and is excited to get out of the car. The pictures we are sent let us know Sweetie is having a good time and enjoying her vacation. We have absolutely NO reservations or concerns about leaving our much-loved pet there.

Maizey Moo Cow's stay was above and beyond what I could've expected! The space she had to roam around in was incredible and the care that Susan put into Moo's stay was impecible! Susan sent pictures and updates of playtime and adorable naptimes! I would HIGHLY recommend her for any dog! Thank you Susan for being such a wonderful dog sitter, we'll be seeing you again shortly!

Susan was wonderful with Gumbeaux! When we arrived you could tell he immediately felt at home and was ready for us to leave so he could explore and play. Susan sat down with me to discuss his routine and she took detailed notes. Since this little man can be a picky eater I truly appreciated the special attention she paid to him. Susan sent pics throughout the weekend of Beaux's antics. You can tell Susan is truly a very sweet person who truly enjoys dogs!!

Susan is the greatest!! We have used her many times and our "boys" love staying with her. We never worry when they are with her. She sends pics several times a day and always responds very quickly if you have questions. We hope she never retires as we will be lost without her.

Susan has kept my dogs, Precious and Dixie, a few times since early this year. Recently Precious moved to Arkansas to live with my son (her boy). Dixie's been a little lonely and needed some time at Susan's place with the other dogs. Susan sent me updates daily with pictures, assuring me that she was having a great time! Thank you, Susan! We'll see you again soon.

Susan has kept my two dogs a few times now. She's taken the time to get to know them and that was never more evident than when she called me one day while they were there this past week to tell me that something was wrong with one of them. Within a few minutes Susan and my dog were on the way to the vet's office. It was an serious infection that required an 24 hour stay for treatment and observation. If Susan hadn't taken action so quickly, my dog probably wouldn't have made it. Susan is a wonderful sitter and my dogs are completely comfortable with her. Above that, she has incredible instincts for which I'm so grateful! Thank you!

She is the greatest!! Our boys just love staying with her. They are spoiled and we never worry about them with her. If you ever have a reason/need to use her - do so. You will be very happy that you did.
Susan came to my rescue when I had to leave town unexpectedly. She gladly accepted my request and took great care of my girls! Thanks, Susan. See you again soon!
My black/lab mix had a wonderful time at Susan's. Nala is a city dog who got to enjoy the country life for a week. After Susan discovered Nala LOVES water, she even bought her a sprinkler to frolick in. To be perfectly honest, I was afraid Nala wouldn't want to return to city life. Thank you Susan for taking care of Nala. I plan on bringing her back to enjoy country living in the very near future.

I was impressed with her facility, she makes the dog's fill like they are at home and treats them like family. My wife and I are very happy with her service and will be back FOR SURE!
Susan is way better than "pawsome", she's amazing!! My two babies love her and I trust her completely. They have a wonderful adventure while there and I have peace of mind knowing that they're well cared for in my absence!!
Susan was more than we could ask for! Not only is she pleasant and an obvious dog lover herself, but her home is a doggy paradise! BIG backyard!! and she also has a great set-up to ensure that all her doggy guests have plenty of room to lounge inside, all the while keeping them separated. She also sent us updates and pictures of our pups while we were away which was very reassuring. It was definitely nice to know that while on our vacation that our pups were having one of their own! Thanks Susan!

This was an add on to a previous reservation and was a life saver for us. Susan is the greatest.
We have used Susan several times and will so many times in the future. She is wonderful and truly cares about the pets she keeps. We had a change in our dates on very short notice and had to bring our 'boys' a day early. She was great about the change. She sends photos and messages at least once a day. We never worry when we board with Susan. We can't say enough wonderful things about her.

I really appreciate Susan being available and accepting my request on such short notice. She was very helpful in helping me get to her location and letting me know what we needed to bring. The area she has set up for the dogs was perfect for them. I am sure each of them felt as if they were on a vacation. I would recommend Susan to anyone in the area who needs a dog-sitter. Thanks again Susan.

We recently got married, and our 3 dogs stayed with Susan for over a week while we were out of town for the wedding. After meeting Susan for the "meet and greet" and reading all of the reviews on here, I felt very confident that our dogs would be in great hands. Susan was FANTASTIC!

Her place is literally a dog paradise -- tons of fenced in land for the dogs to play in, pigs at the neighbors for the dogs to "visit at the fence", an air-conditioned house behind the main house that is setup very comfortably to host dogs, etc.

In addition to having a great setup for dogs, you can tell that she is truly a dog lover and that your dogs will be spoiled on their stay here. She sent us daily photos/text message updates (multiple updates on most days) and was also extremely responsive/reachable. With all of her updates and photos, our minds were really put at ease because we could tell that our dogs felt right at home and were very happy and well cared for.

I'm someone that hates traveling/leaving the dogs and that worries a TON about how well they will be cared for when I'm gone. Without hesitation, Susan provided an experience for our dogs that gave me absolutely no concerns! We are already in the process of planning our next trip and are DEFINITELY going to have the dogs stay again with Susan while we are gone. Thank you so much, Susan! Buddy, Carly, and Cissy LOVED staying with you! :)

Susan T has a Great set up for dog sitting! It is very easy to see that she is a true dog lover. We did not worry about Buddy while he was on vacation because we knew he was healthy and happy. Thank you Susan.
Our dogs' stay with Susan was great. Our dogs felt comfortable in her home right from the start and all the pictures and updates she sent made us feel comfortable too. Our fur babies mus have had a great time playing all weekend bc they came home happy exhausted. We will definitely be using Susan again in the future.

This was our 2nd time to use Suzanne. We have a Rotti & a Sheltie. Our Rottie is very slow to warm up to people so when we turned on the road to Suzanne's and he stood up, knob tail wagging & making his 'happy sound' we were very pleased. By the time we picked them up (3 days) he was following her everywhere, lying by her feet and even gave her a 'kiss'. She sends lots of pics & updates. We will use her every time we can.

Wonderful host and wonderful accommodations for our boys. Plenty of room to play both inside and out. Susan spends lots of time with her guests both inside and out. She also kept us up to date with pictures and info on what they were doing. We highly recommend this host to everyone & we will use her every chance we get. She is the kind of person that everyone should have to care for their dogs while they are away & Vacay is very lucky to have her.

Susan kept my babies over the weekend and updated me daily with pictures and comments. I can tell they had a great time - they were exhausted! We'll definitely be back. Thank you, Susan!
Susan has a wonderful love for dogs. She updated me with pictures every day and made Maggie Mae part of her family. I will certainly use her again when needed.
Another GREAT stay with Ms. Susan. It is so nice to be able to go away and not have to worry about our dog Cosmo. She is so good about keeping us informed about how he is doing while staying in her home.
It is a short lovely drive and worth every second to be able to have the peace of mind that he is being well taken care of.
Thanks Ms. Susan!!!

Susan always does an excellent job taking care of Slick. This was the second time we used her. She is very attentive, she sends lots of pictures, and Slick always seems to enjoy his stay there. She also has a huge lot for him to run and exercise - important for a big dog! We are VERY pleased with Susan, and will definitely use her again.

Both my big, big dogs (Great Dane and fat Collie mix) adored Susan, and when they came for their next visit, they were so happy to see her! I can rest assured that Susan is babying them as much as I do. She is very dependable and loving. I could not be happier with anyone else.

Susan was very nice and friendly. Felt totally comfortable leaving our baby with her.
This is the 3rd time that we have used Susan for our two dogs. From the moment that the dogs walked in it was like they were home. They were excited to see their "Aunt Susan" and then took off to run around the 2 plus acres of land she has. We plan on using Susan every time we leave town. Susan is great and she will love your dogs like they are her own. We highly recommend her.

Susan is wonderful! This was Rascal's second stay and he loves going to visit at Tom"s Cloud. We already plan to have Rascal stay again in March where he gets all the love and attention he wants and we have no worries.
WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!! This was our first time leaving our 3 yr old standard poodle Rascal, but our concerns quickly faded after doing a "meet and greet" with Susan. We were relieved and excited that Rascal would be happy and well cared for during our trip. Once on our vacation the texts, emails and photos we received were very comforting. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND SUSAN and could not be more pleased. Rascal will definitely be going on another DogVacay at Susan's again!!!

Susan was great as always. Our girls had a great time running around her huge yard. I 100% recommend using Susan.
Susan is the best. Her property was perfect for dogs. It is a couple of acres for the dogs to run and place (the dogs even learned how to use the doggie dog) and her place was very comfortable for them to rest after playtime. Susan was very reassuring when we got there and send several picture throughout the visit. Everything went great and it looked like our girls had a great time when we picked them will. We will definitely use Susan again when we have a trip to Shreveport.

Susan was awesome! I don't think Slick wanted to leave. Huge yard to run. She sent several picture updates. Would definitely let Slick stay with Susan and "Carly Sue" again.
Tyson's stay was great. When we came and picked him up he was excited we were there, but I don't think he really wanted to go. She sent us updates on him if we inquired and even some pictures! I highly recommend her and we will be using her again! Tyson loved it and he loved playing with her dog there as well!

I was so scared to leave my baby, so I set up a meet and greet. Susan was amazing she was so sweet and she put my mind at ease about the care my baby would be receiving. I received daily updates and pictures of daisy and she had such a great time!! Susan will defiantly be our goto caregiver for our babies in the future.
