About Susan

I have recently retired from the Okanagan and moved to Vancouver Island. I have owned my own home(s) over a period of 45 years.
I've worked in the Hospitality sector managing Vacation Resorts, Apartment Buildings; greeted guests at hotels and attractions (Crown Mansion Boutique Hotel/Milner Gardens in Qualicum Beach). I have volunteered for Tourism Parksville for 2 years; have a pretty good idea of the variety of areas and attractions on the Island and what the Island has to offer in general. Exploring Vancouver Island is a side benefit to Pet/House sitting.

In the Okanagan, I have pet sat for friends in their homes; in Parksville, I walked my neighbors dog daily. More recently, I joined TrustedHousesitters, where I gained a 5 Star Pet Sitter rating after caring for more than 9 families of cats and dogs over a 9 month period of time. 

I am adventurous and would entertain the idea of caring for ducks, chickens, goats .... just ask me!!

I like to read, walk/hike, cycle, kayak, garden, cook, bake, practice yoga.... I keep a clean home and I will gladly do light housekeeping and gardening in your home while you are away

As your pet/house sitter you can expect Me to be:

Friendly / Dependable / Honest / Resourceful / Punctual and someone who will make caring for your pets and home my priority. I shall send you photos and messages from your pets daily keepping you in constant contact ; keep your home clean & tidy; water plants; collect mail; look after outdoor plants & garden and other tasks as agreed upon

You are welcome to ask for additional information and/or to meet me beforehand.... in person or Zoom

I live in Sooke and I'm often available on short notice 

Note: I only pet sit in your house

Susan was absolutely awesome to have in our home and look after the pups. they really love her. she's great at updating you on their status and adds some good humor in from the dogs perspective as well. She kept the house just as we left it. just an awesome lady to know. We felt super at ease on our trip knowing she was at our house. Will definitely be having her back. 💯✌️
