Susan is a great person & a lover of all dogs. She has always shown a huge passion for her pets and I have trusted her with my dog several times when I was out of town. She always seems to have a smile on her face when around pets and I love that she is taking her passion to the next level.

Susan Kaufman is fantastic person and dedicated wonderful dog walker. She takes such amazing care of our two dogs. She treats them as if they are her children. Seriously, I could not recommend her more highly as a competent, super professional person.

Thank you,
Jane Dresner Sadaka

I cannot thank Susan enough! She was so kind and hospitable. She sent me pictures and was delighted to have my dog Libby in her home. Most definitely will be seeing her again. Libby loooves her and when she's with Susan I know she's treated as one of her own.

Dogs are simply my passion! I love providing them with all the love and care they need to thrive. As a (former) dog owner myself, I also know how difficult it can be to find quality care for your pups while you’re away (or just need a walk during the day!). I’m here to fill that role and make sure your pup is as happy and healthy as can be. Their safety is ...

What Susan would like to know about your dog

I'm an equal dog opportunist. I'd like to know the dog's temperament, so there's no surprises. I'd want to know where they are used to walking, what people food can the dog eat, as the dog I'm sitting.... loves, did I say ......loves human food. Did you know blueberries are good for dogs? The dog's pee and poo schedule is important as well. A meet and greet is mutually helpful, but I've never met a dog I didn't get along with and visa versa. I'm crazy about dogs; all dogs.

When Susan watches your pet

I live on the UES, a 15 minute walk to Central Park or Carl Schurz Park. There’s also the FDR promenade right on the East River with amazing views, and great places to play and throw some balls around. The area is full of activity and many many dogs, which is great for pups under my care. If your dog likes, I run them at the end of our walk. There are also great stores to walk into where dogs are welcome. When not, we window shop. It’s a great dog neighborhood!

I love to go for plenty of walks, since my work allows me a great deal of freedom. I also believe that Nietzsche once said that “only ideas won by walking have any value,” so it’s always great to get out of the house with some friendly pups! We’ll always make sure to hit up some of the best places for dogs to socialize and have some fun. I love exploring with my furry friends, whether that means seeing more of the city or visiting some dog-friendly stores, cafes, and restaurants.
