About Suzanne

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home as a photographer, so can tend to your pooch 24/7. And I will also send you way too many photos of your dog enjoying his/her vacation! Our home has an open plan on the first floor, so I can keep an eye on your pup at all times.

We take our dog-in-residence, Daisy to some of the local dog parks, including Hamlin and Horner Parks, and for long walks around Roscoe Village. A neighbor who has a huge yard lets us use it to wear dogs out as well. And we have a fenced-in and locked good-sized yard. Our daughter Loretta, aged 12, looooovvvves dogs, and has always had one in her life.

Daisy is an Airedale-Boxer-Golden Retriever mix, and has never met a dog or person she doesn't like. She still has some puppy in her (born spring of '13), and leans to the submissive side.

I've always had dogs in my life, both growing up and as an adult. I can't imagine life without one.

Suzanne's home includes a private, fenced back yard, safe, tree-lined streets, and a spacious indoor area for pups to roam about in.

Suzanne also has a 12-year-old daughter who is gentle, loving, and responsible around dogs as well. There's no doubt about it - your pup will instantly feel like a part of the family during his/her Vacay with Suzanne!

Great with Bella!
Suzanne is great! She and her daughter took great care of my Olive. Their dog, Daisy, is also a sweetheart. I look forward to having her stay with them again.
Suzanne (and Loretta) took such good care of our boy. She definitely had her hands full with 3 other dogs but we were very pleased because Happy came home work out!
Suzanne's home is lovely and she sent me many photos of her dog and mine playing, which was great.
The one star is due to two things:
1) I arrived to pick up my dog at 6pm (scheduled and confirmed), but she was not there and couldn't be reached until 7:30 when she came home. I understand that things come up, but my issue was about the lack of communication and inability to reach her for 1.5 hours as I waited outside.
2) As I was waiting, I looked in the window and saw that my dog was crated and barking/crying. My dog is not crate-trained and the last time he was in a crate was at the shelter. She never mentioned that she would crate my dog, and I would have never known if I didn't see it.

Great - no problems and my dog seemed very comfortable, happy, and tired.
I would give Suzanne 100 stars, if this app would allow me to do so. My elderly dog was held most of the weekend by Suzanne's mom, and my young pup got to frolick and play with Daisy all weekend. I highly recommend Suzanne.
Suzanne was great with my boys, and my boys loved her, her daughter and her dog. I have two boys and one of them is very hyper and can really turn people off. Suzanne welcomed him, with his flaws and all. Some people won't get past his sometimes annoying behavior to see what a sweet, friendly little guy he is and i'm thankful Suzanne gave him a chance.
Her house with a fenced in yard is perfect and worked out great - especially if you have a senior dog that may need extra potty breaks, or a hyper dog that also might need extra breaks because they are playing so much.
It's nice to have someone close by that is reliable and provides a safe comfortable place for your dogs to stay. We will definitely use Suzanne again in the future!

Pawsome!!! Suzanne and her daughter are wonderful! Their dog Daisy is super sweet and provides great company. When I got back, my dog went to bed and slept for hours. He had so much exercise and fun playing. I will rebook with Suzanne again any chance I can. It is such a good feeling knowing my little guy is happy and safe while I'm away. Thank you Suzanne!!!!!

This was our first time using DogVacay and we could not have had a better experience with Suzanne, as she is a very friendly and kind person. She was extremely attentive while we were gone for nearly two weeks, and her loveable dog Daisy and daughter were just an added bonus to create a wonderful environment for our bulldog. We did not worry the whole time we were away and Suzanne updated us often on the days activities and photos that she would take of Benny and other pups that he was playing with. She has a wonderful spacious home in a great neighborhood, and there is a large lot nearby that she takes dogs that she hosts. I will absolutely be in touch with future sitting needs!

Suzanne was wonderful! Very convenient drop off/pick-up and close to home. She sent us frequent photos and updates on Murphy so we were at ease that he was enjoying his vacation! We would definitely use Susanne and family again!
Suzanne watched my pooch Riley over a long weekend and I was very relaxed knowing Riley was in good hands. She has a wonderful home with a great backyard so Riley could run around freely. She also checked in regularly sending photos. I would definitely use Suzanne again in the future and highly recommend her if you are looking for a responsible person to watch your pooch.

Suzanne is a great dog sitter, she gave my dog plenty of attention and is able to stay with your dog 24/7. Highly recommended.
Suzanne is great! She is very flexible and Georgia loved playing with her dog Daisy. Highly recommend!
Inca had a great time! Thank you for everything:)
My boyfriend and I contacted Suzanne at the very last minute to watch our 10 year old dog. This was the first time we left him with someone else. Suzanne was everything we could of imagined. I felt very at ease leaving our dog with her. She was easy to communicate with, always responding to my texts promptly and keeping me updated throughout the day. I definitely recommend Suzanne. She's great.

Suzanne watched our Maxie for 5 days over the Christmas holiday. We were a little nervous leaving him but Suzanne and her family made him feel right at home and put our worries to rest. We communicated with her daily and received pictures which put out mind at ease. I will definitely request her services again.

I would highly recommend Suzanne to anyone. We felt so much better leaving our older dog with her family than having to board him while we were away. I would go back to Suzanne again in a heartbeat. Great experience.
