We have a rescue dog who was abused prior to our adopting him. We love him so much and are sensitive to his issues, so we had never used a dog sitter before. We were super nervous, but Susan was just perfect. She is very experienced, has knowledge and awareness of the various temperaments of dogs and truly loves dogs. Her sensitivity and compassion made this go as perfectly as we had hoped. She sent ...

Susan is fantastic with our greyhound, Monkey (and Monkey loves her)! She sends us photos and keeps in touch with us so that we don't have to worry about Monkey when we are away. We highly recommend using her!

Highly recommend Susan!! I've recently rescued my dog, a chihuahua-terrier mix, and he's got some issues with separation anxiety and anxiety in general. I went vacationing on the east coast for 6 days, and was nervous about leaving him home for that long for the first time, so I had Susan stay here. Susan was very patient and and good to him, and thoughtful helping him with his anxiety. She frequently stayed in touch, sent ...

I am currently a supervisor at a doggy daycare, boarding, and grooming facility. I have administered medication, I am cpr trained, and I have ...

What Susan would like to know about your dog

When Susan watches your pet

I will base activities on the temperament and energy level of your dog. If I am watching an older, more docile dog we will most likely spend a lot of time just hanging out and relaxing. If I'm watching a puppy or a high energy level dog we will most likely be tossing the ball a lot, taking frequent walks, and playing lots of engaging games. I will try my hardest to accommodate the same schedule that you provide so that I may ultimately ease the anxiety that he/she may have following your absence. I do however, hold a full time job so I would be gone up to 8 hrs at a time some days.
