Susan was great, Charlie (our dog) loved it. She is very loving and caring and will give your dog all attention. She even started teaching Charlie a new trick. Charlie enjoyed staying with her and for sure will return.

As always, Steve the dog loved staying with Susan. He is so happy and well cared for! Susan is our dog’s version of Disneyland!

What Susan would like to know about your dog

Most of my own experience has been with medium to large breeds. I would like to know if a dog has any medical needs and information about how well s/he gets along with other animals.

When Susan watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live 2 blocks from a large park (with a soccer field) where dogs can walk off-leash. I will also take him/her on long walks to the Berkeley Marina and can take him in my car to Pt. Isabel and Albany Bulb if s/he loves to be in the water.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
The dog will sleep in my bedroom on a doggie bed. If the dog is accustomed to sleeping on the bed, I don't mind.

Time I'll spend with your dog
During holidays, I would spend all day with the dog. My work schedule is flexible and I would never leave the dog alone for more than 5 hours.

This semester I teach at the university for long hours on alternate weekends (February 5-6, February 19-20, March 4-5, March 11-12, April 1-2, April 15-16, April 29-30, and May 13-14) so will not be available on those dates.
