About Susie & Tim

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are located in Mountain View/Palo Alto border next to a large park, in a safe, welcoming and pet-friendly neighborhood. We have a 2-bedroom, hardwood and carpet floor, one-story house with a balcony. I have a 4-year old, female Apricot Poodle named Honey Brown back at home in Korea. I've been raising her since she was a couple months old, and am terrific at washing and grooming her. I also sat two other dogs regularly (another male adult Poodle and a female baby Pomeranian) over the past 3 years, and have frequently volunteered as a dog walker at PAWS (Performance Animal Welfare Society). My boyfriend Tim has had experience dog-sitting close to 10 small to medium sized puppies and adult dogs for anywhere between several days to weeks at a time for the past 11 years. We've been doing DogVacay since December 2015, except for the three months we were working/traveling in the East Coast, and have taken care of 16 absolutely lovely dogs or all breeds, sizes and personalities together.
We both have a very flexible schedule as startup co-founders, and more importantly, share a great love for dogs. We currently cannot adopt one ourselves because of work, but we would love to help you keep yours safe and loved when you aren't available. Please feel free to drop us a message if you have any questions! :)

Mocha always seems to enjoy her stay at Tim & Susie's!
Everything went great! Our dog was very happy!
Susie and Tim are truly dog lovers. They took care of my 2 Coton de Tulear when we were away for the day. We needed someone who will diligent in watching our sick dog and we found them in Susie and Tim. They are compassionate and gave our dogs the genuine TLC they need while we are away. I feel entrust my fur-kids with them.
Susie & Tim are great! They are very friendly and flexible to the pick up/drop off schedule. They treat my dog like their own pet and sent me bunch of pictures and videos during the stay. I am very satisfied with this reservation and will definitely come back if needed.
Susie and Tim are super nice, they were very accommodating to find time for meet, drop off and pick up. They took very good care of our Shih Tzu and sent plenty of messages, photos and videos. Highly recommended!
Susie and Tim are great doggie hosts. They made Ginger feel at home and played a lot with her. She had a wonderful time. Definitely recommend Susie and Tim.
Susie and Tim were really great. My dog was not such a great guest, however. But they were kind, patient and loving nonetheless! They communicated with me frequently and sent lots of photos. My pup was well cared for! Highly recommended!!
Our 11 week old golden retriever puppy had a great time with a Susie and Tim! They sent lots of photos and updates which I loved. Rosie will definitely be staying with them again!
Really happy with Susie and Tim -- they obviously care a lot about dogs and I could tell that our pooch was very happy there when I picked her up. Highly recommended -- would definitely go to them again.
Susie and Tim took wonderful care of our 6-month old pup on her first vacay away! Our pup had their loving attention and got to play with another dog staying with them, too. We got several updates each day including pictures and video. Thanks Susie and Tim for taking care of our baby!
Tim and Susie were, in short, incredible! They were so loving and very attentive of my beagle Ranger. They took many pictures, took him on long walks, and encouraged him to howl in his unique beagle way! When Ranger jumped up too high and was able to grab his food bag and proceeded to eat it ALL, they told me right away and followed my instructions to hold off on food for 24hrs. I can't imagine the whining they had to put up with, lol! They went and got the exact food I feed him with no hassle whatsoever. Constant pics, videos, and general updates made my heart smile!! I literally could not be more pleased and I absolutely plan on booking them again should the need arise. They're amazing!! Thank you so much for taking such good care of my baby!
Our dog loved staying with Susie and Tim! We could tell how happy she was in the pictures and videos that they regularly provided. They were super patient with her, even when she misbehaved a little on her potty training! When we got home, she fell right back into her normal routine, which shows how content she must have been there. We will definitely send our dog to vacation with them again!
Tim and Susie took care of our dog possibly better than we take care of him on a regular basis! We went on vacation for almost two weeks and were a little apprehensive about leaving him for the first time, but the time and energy they put in to make him feel at home and give him lots of love and play were absolutely fantastic! I absolutely would board our pup with them again.
We really appreciate Susie and Tim making the time for a last minute meet-n-greet request. They were also very accommodating with our early drop off and late pick up times. Since they both work from home, they were able to spend a lot of time with her and even took her with them when they went out. Penny had a great time!
Would have liked more frequent updates throughout Gracie's stay, but otherwise Susie and her husband were very nice and accommodating.
Susie was a wonderful host for our 6 mo old yellow lab, Huckleberry. We appreciated the regular photo and video updates and it was great to have a couple of other dogs staying with Susie at the same time so that Huckleberry had friends to play with. When we picked him up, Huckleberry seemed sad to leave which is a great sign for a dog sitter!
Susie and Tim are the best dog sitters we've had to date! Lolly was sooo happy, our trip was better knowing that she was enjoying herself and was so carefully attended to during her stay. Susie and Tim sent us pictures and asked us questions via text when needed. They were also taking care of some other dogs, so Lolly had friends while she stayed and played. They have a lovely backyard and take dogs' for walks, too! Highly, highly, recommend!!
