About Susan

I am no longer able to walk and care for big dogs due to a leg injury. I have recently retired from teaching overseas and have settled in Victoria. One of the things I most missed in my years abroad was the company of dogs; walking, snuggling on the sofa, petting or just hanging out together.

As my present accommodation is too small to offer a dog a home, I would love to spend time getting to know your dog or cat. I fully understand your pet's need for consistent, reliable and loving care with their own beds, toys and walking routes and routines.

Although I am not a professional groomer, I do enjoy brushing dogs and will bathe your dog if needed after a muddy walk. I enjoy dogs of all sizes, breeds and ages and am familiar with the basics of obedience training. I participated in training programs with my own dogs.

I am happy to visit cats in their own homes to feed, brush, snuggle, clean up and most importantly play and hang out.

I have offered overnight pet and house sitting for friends in the past in both the Ottawa area and in London, England and can provide references upon request.

As I do not have a car, I would appreciate a ride to and from your house for house/pet sitting.

This was the 2nd time Susan came to stay with our dog Lily, and we couldn't be happier to have a sitter we can trust. Lily is older and has trouble with her back legs and it is obvious when we get home that Susan has been paitent and extra loving with her, and making sure she gets the right level of exercise. Like last time we received photos of Lily while we were away as well as daily updates about what they did. Susan's communication was quick, friendly, and efficient. A pleasure as always!

Susan is a most thoughtful and attentive caregiver. She made my time away from my kids much easier to relax knowing they were very well taken care of. ❤
