About Susan

*Only taking bookings from existing clients until further notice*

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.


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.

Dog Boarding
David, 2021-07-15

I took my dog to Susan for a three night stay, and I am more than pleased with how she looked after him, the daily feedback, and the cost associated with his stay. Susan did a meet and greet with my dog to be certain that he would fit in with her own pets and other dogs that she cares for, and I came away knowing that my dog would be in good hands. I would highly recommend Susan to other dog owners looking for temporary accommodation.
