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.

House Sitting
Liz, 2019-02-02

Susan, is a diligent and responsible cat sitter. Her experience with cats is a huge asset and she is kind and caring - a great combination. Our cat was happy and relaxed when we returned home and our house was in impeccable condition. I would not hesitate to use Susan again or to refer her. Liz

Susan was kind, responsive and provided excellent care for our elderly dog. We went away for two weeks, and received several thoughtful updates and cute photos. Highly recommended!
