About Susan Sits Pets

When going out of town for vacation or business, or when you have a long day away from home and need in-home care for your beloved pets, you want to know they will get the same care and attention that you would give them. This is especially important for senior pets, or pets with health conditions. With life long experience and love of animals, I am offering a full-time, professional service where my sole focus is caring for your animal family members.

About Susan Hurst

I've always been surrounded by animals - dogs, cats, fish, birds, pocket pets and horses. Throughout college and until marrying and relocating to Delaware, I had an informal pet, house and farm sitting business. Since retiring from corporate project and risk management work, I've provided in-home pet care and dog walking as a full time professional pet sitter.  I've trained my own dogs, am an avid equestrian, volunteer with Delaware Humane Association and BREW Beagle Rescue, and am a life-long student of all things animal.

I have also earned the NAPPS Certification credential. The NAPPS Certification Program provides pet sitters with a broad-ranged and in-depth program in pet sitting. The curriculum includes topics in pet care, health, nutrition and behavior, as well as, business development and management, and a complete pet first aid course.

Along with my husband, I have been a resident of North Wilmington since 2000. We currently share our home with two beagles, Bella and Ringo. In addition to my love for animals, I enjoy cooking and creating art.

We look forward to providing you with the best care for your own fur, feather and fin babies!
