Susan is amazing! Our pups love her and so do we! It's great to get texts while we travel and see picts of our fur babies enjoying their time with her.

I used Susan as a dogwalker for several months recently and she is the best! I had an older dog who needed special attention and a slower pace. Susan was always extra careful and attentive with her. She even cleaned up a few times when my dog had accidents in the house. Susan is completely trustworthy and you can see that she genuinely loves animals. I highly recommend her! You can't go wrong.

Susan is terrific and not just for dogs! She's been caring for our Maine Coon, Hannah, and our little outdoor kitty, Reggie, for the past year. Hannah loves Susan. Not only because she feeds her (Hannah lives for her food!), cleans her litter, etc., but the time and attention Susan gives her. In fact, Hannah probably gets to play with her toys more with Susan than us! We always get great pictures and an update on the girls. I feel really comfortable knowing Susan is watching over the cats and checking on the house while we are gone. I'd highly recommend her to other pet parents.

So incredibly happy we found Susan to take care of our Miniature Schnauzer - Eil while we were away! I cannot tell you the peace of mind it brought my family to have such a caring and thoughtful person making sure Eli was okay while we went on vacation. Susan went above and beyond and we just loved receiving the pictures and daily updates. It's clear our boy loves her and we cannot wait to use Susan and her company again! Highly highly recommend her!
