Susan kept our 2 year old german shepherd / husky mix. She was very caring, flexible, and willing to make accommodations to make our dog feel safe and comfortable. Our dog loved hanging out with her dog Bella. They were great playmates together. I would trust Susan to keep our dog, Nanuk, any time.

A Dog's Home Away from Home

My house has a fenced-in backyard and an access trail to the Baylands is just four houses down the street for dog walks. Currently I can do dog sitting in my home. I'm not a traveling sitter.

I have one dog, Bella. She's a rescue, a 100 lb., 5 yr. old Great Dane/Shepherd Mix and she loves meeting other dogs and people too. I take her to a dog park frequently so she's very ...

When Susan watches your pet

Dogs need to be 100 lbs. or more --to match my dog's needs.

M-F I am at work from 9 to 5:30, dogs have access to fenced in back yard and the entire house all day. There's a big window in the living room looking out toward the front yard with a good view of the street --dog television.

In the early morning we walk on the Baylands on the levee next to the San Francisquito Creek and then over to Palo Alto towards the airport. The walk is one hour long.

In the evening we either walk the same walk on the Baylands, walk in and around downtown Palo Alto and if your dog can be taken to a dog park we go to Jordan Middle School in the evenings.
