I am so happy I found Susan to help me out while I recover from surgery. She has a true love of animals, and my little dog loves going on walks with her. She is always on time, and has been very generous with her time in other areas as well. I highly recommend Susan and will continue to have her help me out in the future.Nov 21, 2014Verified
Susan has been walking my dog Cody for 3yrs now and I couldn't be more happier with her service. She is very dependable and trustworthy person. She is very reliable as well as she always lets me know in advance if she will be out of town. Her service is beyond my expectations. She brushes Cody and sprays doggie perfume so he always smell nice when I get home. She also carries water bottles for him if it is hot outside. After the walk she spends some time bonding with Cody. My Golden Retriever Cody absolutely adores her and is always excited to see her. Susan has a terrific personality and is very responsible and caring dog walker. I really couldn't ask for more. I will always highly recommend Susan for her services and I hope she can walk Cody as long as he is able. I am very happy that I found someone like Susan. Sylvie WarzinskiMar 7, 2017

Our dogs love Susie! We wanted to send a quick message to let you and others know how pleased we are when you watch Rally and Bear when we are away! You are such a natural and show great concern and care for fur babies! We have had Sue watch for our dogs several times and have been very happy with the loving service she provides. We just can't put a price on our pets being so well cared for and being together while we are gone! We will definitely use your service in the future! ~Michele & KevinMar 5, 2017
Bailey has been walked and loved by Susan for over two years. She is loving and caring and very dependable. You can just watch the fur babies and how excited they are to see her. My guy has learned what great adventure it is to be walked by Susan. Gail Conrad and BaileyMar 3, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I usually charge a standard fee of 15$ per dog. If there is two I charge 20$. I have some clients who are elderly and handicapped or to feeble to walk their dogs so I give a discount rate of 10$.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I make sure the fit is right, that my client feels secure with me and most of all that the there best friends (dogs/cats) trust me. I want new clients to know that I will be very trustworthy and reliable . We discuss their needs like hours and days and we come to an agreement where we all are happy. I like staying in contact with my customers by texting or leaving notes.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am continuing basic training and attending behavioral clinics.
