Nala had a wonderful stay with Susan. It was great to get updates from Susan during Nala's stay. Since this was Nala's first stay with Susan, I was bit anxious but Nala seemed really happy. Susan's responses were quick.

Susan is my go-to option for Rex. He loves staying there! She takes great care and he has a ton of fun running around the backyard

They may not want to go home!

I work part to full time as a Physical Therapist 10 minutes away from home and I frequently come home mid day to check on my guests between my 10 AM to 4:30 ish shift.. For years, I have informally boarded a variety of dogs for friends and family in our animal friendly home. We allow our 2 dogs (rat terrier and Pug) and our dog guests free run of the house and good ...

What Susan would like to know about your dog

I have 2 main concerns: First, I like to know they general personality type with regard to dealing with other dogs and cats. Second, I like to know if the dog is house broken and used to going in the back yard. Otherwise, owner preference for treats and human food are helpful. If OK, I will spoil a bit with egg, lean meat, rice.

When Susan watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We have a quiet neighborhood and Ortega Park is within doggy walking distance.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
They will always sleep in the house. We try to create a pack feel so most of our dog guests sleep somewhere close to our master bedroom near our dogs. Our dogs are crated at night but I rely on the dog parents to let me know what their dogs are used to. We can accommodate a dog's own crate, pad by the bed, couch. Also, I have been known to let a certain Pug sleep with my husband and me!

Time I'll spend with your dog
Will vary depending on my work schedule and which of my kids are home. At least, from 5 PM through the evening. Some days most or all day.
