Susan is the best of the best. During a trip, a family emergency caused me to have to delay my return. She went above and beyond to continue taking care of my little ones and help in many other ways that brought such a peace of mind. She is not only a great pet sitter, but a great person. I highly recommend working with her!

Susan is phenomenal. From the second we met, I could tell she has a wonderful, sweet spirit and would be great with my little ones. Every time I go out of town, she's the one who stays with my fur-babies. She sends regular updates with pics, is timely, warm and friendly with the animals and me, and overall just simply wonderful. I highly recommend her!
