She has “cared and loved for” dogs for the likes of Murphy, Higgins, Rio, Lulu, and Summer and is a beloved dog walker in Atlanta! 

Tell us about yourself

Q: Are you native to the area? If not, where are you from? 

Suzanne: I’m actually originally from NJ, however I’ve lived in Atlanta for 25+ years so I’d guess I’d say I’m native now.

Q: What do you do in your free time? 

Suzanne: I walk dogs🐾 , serve at our local church along with serving at one of our Atlanta area homeless shelters.

Q: Do you have any dogs of your own or have you had in the past? 

Suzanne: We have two loving dog babies. Our senior rescue pit mix, Shelby and a young energetic Lab, Eleanor.

Q: What kind of dog(s) do you like? 

Suzanne: There are none that I don’t 😁 They all have their own personalities!

Great answer, Suzanne!

Tell us about your experience as a Pet Caregiver

Q: What is your favorite thing about walking with Wag!?

Suzanne: The flexible schedule. 

Q: What is your favorite neighborhood to walk in? 

Suzanne: Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Avalon, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody areas 

Q: If you could give any advice to a Pet Parent, what would it be? 

Suzanne: Talk to your Wag walker about what your expectations are for walks, drop-ins, etc. Details always help us give your fur baby the best time ever.

Q: What do you enjoy most about Walks? 

Suzanne: Getting to know the dogs in a very peaceful, positive way. Every dog is different. Being a great walker depends on getting to know the dog whether they are puppies or seniors, whether they like to stroll or fast-paced, any habits they might have.

Q: What was your first service like? 

Suzanne: I got started walking dogs to help out our medical community during the early days of COVID-19. I would do walks in early mornings and weekends when our first responders were hard at work. It gave me a sense of helping others when we were all faced with a pandemic. Since then I’ve made many new friends both human and canine.
