About Susan

Registered as a Home Boarding and Dog Daycare with City of Greater Geelong.

After an extensive career in animal care during which I worked with domestic animals of all sorts as well as native wildlife, I am now offering professional standard care for your pets in my home. I limit my bookings so you can rest assured your pet's comfort and care will never be compromised by overcrowding. I have a current police check for clients requiring me to do home visits.

In

my home your pets will be welcome inside and out. Outside I have a large grassy yard with a timber cubby for shelter, an undercover paved area complete with stretcher beds and kennels, and live on a quiet street opposite a riverside walking track. I have a plentiful supply of food puzzle and sensory enrichment toys for your pets to choose from while they are here. I work from home so I'm here all day if you need someone to be with your dog during thunderstorms, if they have high medical needs, or if they need to be kept quiet after surgery. Inside I have air conditioning, and if your pet is allowed on the furniture at home they will be allowed on the furniture here.

I do require your pets to be microchipped, vaccinated, and up to date with flea and worm treatments as required by the Code of Practice. I only accept dogs that have been de-sexed.

**Please Note: While dogs of all sizes are accepted, due to the ageing of my own dogs the decision has been made to limit new clients to quieter dogs, and only small breed puppies.

Only dogs that are de-sexed are accepted.

Susan was fantastic with my cat Claude, and she was also flexible and accommodating when I changed my travel dates. I’d definitely have Susan look after Claude again in future

Susan has gone above and beyond to care for my loved pets at my home while I’m away. She is reliable and responsive and after using her services quite a few times now I can thoroughly recommend her. My dog gets all excited to greet her when she does a meet and greet and remembers her each time. My cat who is quite timid runs out to greet her too. That’s a good sign that she treats my pets well while I’m away. I trust Susan to provide really good care and communicate well with me. I can relax and enjoy my time away when she is taking care of my pets. Thank you so much Susan!
