About Susan

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***From February, 2017 to August, 2017, I will only be providing house-visits (aka check-ups)***

I love pets, especially dogs, with passion. I love their human-like behaviors, loving personalities, loyalty, and especially their wagging tails. I adopted my pup Maya in 2015 and have been in love with her ever since she came into my life. Of course there were times when I struggled with potty-training and house-training her especially when she was a baby, but she grew up to be such a sweet and loving dog. She taught me to be responsible and to be a better mom as a pet owner. Most of all, I'm thankful that she's still here next to me, and she's happy and healthy.

I live at a duplex with Maya. Maya is very active and loves to play with other dog friends! She and I used to live in an apartment complex that had a dog park where she met new friends everyday and learned to socialize ever since she was a 6-week old puppy. So she is very good & friendly toward other dogs or people.

I only take small number of dogs (2-3 dogs) at once so that each one will be well taken care of and get all the attention they deserve. Also, I am home most of the day except when I have classes, and my boyfriend also helps me out with watching the pups. Maya loves going to Bush Central Barkpark, Nortbark dog park, and Wagging Tail dog park, so your dogs can certainly join the fun swimming, playing tag and chasing after balls with other friends there! I also have a large fenced backyard where they can go play around for awhile, take care of potties, and come back inside for a cozy nap. I will always be outside with them when they're in the backyard. I love sending photo & video updates, so you will have a peace of mind knowing that your pups are having a good time here.

I am very flexible because I am a student. You're more than welcome to book any last-minute appointments. I am always by my phone, so my turnaround time is usually within few minutes, maybe 1 hour at max if I am in a class. Feel free to contact me regarding overnight boarding or daycares, and I will be happy to answer any questions for you. Thanks!

Susan was very flexible, responsive to our requests and took great care of our dog. She updated us regularly with pictures. We felt at ease knowing our dog was in good hands. Thank you!
Susan was very great with our fur babies. I loved all the pictures and videos that were sent. She is truly one who understands big dogs. Thanks again!
We booked Susan for a home visits while we were away. Our dog doesn't always get along with all dogs and we didn't want to put her in a kennel, so house visits work well for us.

She has a prompt response time, she's reliable, trustworthy, and sends photos & updates on our dog while we're away.
Susan was so easy to work with! I most especially loved the videos and the pictures while we were away! Our sweet Beau showed us in those that he was not sad at all that we were gone and that he was having a ball!!!
Susan was amazing!! She sent me regular updates and it looked like Niko was having so much fun both with Maya and other pups she was watching. She even took him to the dog park!! I will definitely be using Susan again!
Susan hosted our dog, Cooper, for 4 days last week, and he had a great time. She was really good about sending pictures and videos of him enjoying himself, which was great for us, since we had never left him before. He was in very good hands!

Thank you, Susan!!
Susan was great! She provided plenty of pictures and videos, and Nimbus enjoyed her stay so much that she didn't want to leave.
This is the second time Susan has taken care of Otis. He comes back exhausted every time, I know he is getting tons of love and play time! She sends tons of pictures showing how happy his stay is with her and the other pups. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Susan was great. She gave our dogs a lot of attention and we got lots of photos and videos of their time with her.
Susan was such a great host and kept me updated with pictures constantly! She also made sure I knew how she was eating and getting along with the other pups that weekend. Marty will definitely be staying with Susan again next time I have to go out of town.
This was Leo's 3rd stay with Susan. You can tell he has a blast there always from the way he pulls me from the car to her house and when he is not so eager to leave the place the next day. Susan is super prompt to respond and was very understanding to my changing schedule. She also gives multiple photo and video updates just for a 1 day stay. Would highly recommend !
Susan is an amazing sitter and very easy to communicate with. She send me the photos and videos everyday, which helped me keep up with how my puppy was handling the first boarding situation. I know my dog has fantastic time with Susan and her puppy! I will definitely book with her again! Really great experience! Thanks, Susan :)
Susan is always great with our dog! I've used her services many times and she never disappoints! Within hours of leaving the dog, she sends pictures and videos to put my mind at ease. Her husky is super sweet also!
Susan is amazing!! My dog, Bear, had his first ever boarding experience with her and she was absolutely wonderful with him. As a dog parent we worry about every aspect of leaving our dog, but with Susan there is no need to worry at all! She is very attentive and follows all of your dogs needs. She's amazing with sending updates and answering any messages you send. I will definitely be using her again and I know Bear can't wait to go back!
Susan did a great job with our pup Leo. He had a great time there. We loved the updates, photos and videos that she sent everyday - we could enjoy our vacation so much better knowing that our baby is happy and well cared for. She is also very quick to respond to messages and queries, which makes working with her a very pleasant experience. We will definitely hire her again, when we travel next.
Susan was the very best caregiver we could have gotten for our dog - Thunder. We were lucky to have such a caring and nice person take care of him. Susan constantly kept in contact with many pictures and videos, as well as texting us updates for the whole time we were away on vacation. At no time did we feel we had to worry about the care Thunder was getting. When we picked him up not only was he clean and heathy but Susan had cleaned all his belongings as well for us.
Thank you so much for everything.
Susan was great! Very flexible and friendly, and provided pictures or videos each day of my pup's stay. Thank you!!
Susan took care of Simba & Doodle for a week and sent me pics of how they were doing every day! She genuinely loves my babies, so I'm definitely happy with her services! She is trustworthy and my dogs had a great time playing with her other dogs! We will use her services again in the future!
Susan was wonderful! Our pup was very happy to have stayed with her. She was very responsive and sent daily photos. We look forward to her dog sitting for us again.
This was our second time and Susan did a great job taking care of Snoopy. He was happy and we felt that he had a great time there. Susan kept us posted with nice pictures and videos daily which put our mind at ease knowing that our baby was happy while we were away. I highly recommend her. Thanks Susan!
Love that she had a yard for them to play!
Susan did an excellent job taking care of Vivian. She kept us informed with lots of pictures and videos. It was nice to see Vivian playing with the other dogs and having fun. I would have her take care of Vivian again and recommend her to my friends and family.
Excellent job! My dogs seemed to want to stay when I went to pick them up. ??
This was the second time I booked with Susan and she was great again! Samus loves playing with her husky and she keeps me posted every day with photos and videos!
Susan K was really a great host for Oscar. We left our lab for 1 night and he adjusted really well with 3 other dogs there. She sent us pictures and vidoes when we were away. Overall it was a very good experience. Paddy
I totally enjoyed having my dog stay with Susan. I had to use Susan as part of Brandy's transition to Dallas and I think it made the process easier. I really enjoyed getting photo/video updates daily, which put me at ease that she was settling in. Susan's dog Maya is a sweetheart and was Brandy's 1st paw friend. I would definitely use Susan again!!
Susan replied quickly to my message and was available at my convenience to schedule a meet and greet...my dogs overnight stay went well. Enjoyed her pictures and videos updates...I will happy to call on Susan again for dog care!
Susan is a great dog sitter. My dog was a HUGE nibbler before she got dogsat by her and Maya and my puppy came home extremely discipline and happy. I would recommend her to anyone, also she is extremely flexible with a wonderful attitude.
Susan did a great job! Her puppy got along really well with mine and she sent a lot of really cute updates. Will definitely use her again, highly recommend!
Susan was extremely flexible, friendly and provided a loving place for me to leave my dog worry free. Susan was very responsive (before and during the visit), making sure I knew what to expect and how he was doing. He was in a great mood coming home and was excited to return a second time!
Had a great experience Sadie had more fun activites than at home! Really appreciated all the pics and updates since first time with dogvacay and susan.
Susan was fantastic and extremely flexible! She sent us great pictures of our dogs enjoying their time while we were away. They seemed very happy and satisfied, and she took great care of them when they had to stay inside on a rainy day. I also think Maya will be a good friend to our doggies!

Thanks Susan!!
At first, my wife and I were a little skeptical about DogVacay, but we decided to try it out after reading several reviews. Needless to say, we are thankful that we did, and we are even more thankful that we selected Susan to host our two dogs.

Susan went above and beyond our expectations, and I cannot thank her enough! She answered my initial inquiry within an hour, and she was very flexible and welcoming. My wife and I requested a meet-and-greet at a nearby dog park so that our dogs could socialize, and Susan promptly accepted our request.

The process was easy, and Susan provided an extra level of comfort by posting videos and photos of our dogs while we were out of town. Susan was able to provide 24 hour supervision, and she even gave our dogs a bath (which we didn't even request)! :)

Our dogs were visibly happy when we picked them up, and they definitely had a wonderful time hanging out with Susan's dog, Maya.

Susan is a wonderful sitter for anyone wanting to try out DogVacay. My wife and I definitely plan to use DogVacay and Susan's services again!
Susan was absolutely incredible! She took my extremely last minute reservation and always kept me updated with pictures! Had some flight trouble so she was willing to keep my pup for an additional night without hesitation. Even ran to Petco for more dog food. She is super sweet and I would recommend her to anyone! She has a beautiful husky and a fenced in backyard!
Susan was great! It was my first time using Dog Vacay and she helped me feel at ease leaving my pup with a stranger for a long weekend. I wanted to meet a week before to make sure our dogs got along. She was very accommodating.

During the vacay, Susan sent me updates (like an adorable picture of our two dogs snuggling next to each other and sleeping!) as requested and was very responsive to any questions I had. Susan also took my dog with her dog to the dog park on the weekend, which was great of her and I know my dog loved it!

Susan was flexible with the drop off and pick up times, which I appreciated very much since I work downtown (long commute) and was traveling before my return home.

I was very happy with my first experience with Dog Vacay and plan to rebook with Susan in the future.
So this was the first time that I have ever boarded my dog. I cannot say enough good things about Susan and her pup Maya. From the very beginning she was very accommodating and we had a meet and greet before my dog stayed with them.

They were very considerate of my dog's needs diet wise and she kept me constantly updated with photos and updates to let me know everything was going well. Her husky Maya was adorable and such a good natured dog. She was very playful and never had an issue with my dog who is a boy.

I will be using Susan for as long as I can anytime I need to board my dog again. She was very knowledgeable and kept me informed and updated even more than what I would have expected. Really words cannot express the feeling of knowing that my buddy was in great hands and had a blast at the same time. I don't think I've ever seen him as happy as he was getting to play with her dog.

Really cannot say enough great things about Susan and her family!!
