Hey Friends!  Welcome to Surf’s Pup!! 


My name is Janis and I am the Founder and Owner of Surf's Pup!  Surf’s Pup Doggie Lounge came to fruition over the last decade in my previous career practicing medicine.  I graduated Yale School of Medicine in 2010 and spent my medical career taking care of humans on the front lines in Emergency Medicine, Trauma, and Acute Care Surgery through the end of 2018.  


Throughout my time as a practicing Physician Assistant, I survived some of the most challenging times with the comfort and unconditional love that only a dog can provide.  A bad day in the ER could be alleviated with a few slobbery kisses and happy wiggle butts that always greeted me when arriving home!  


Over the years I have come to realize the importance maintaining a healthy work life balance, and as a previous working professional I know how hard it can be to take care of our pets while also taking care ourselves.  My overall goal with Surf’s Pup is to help YOU find your healthy daily balance by helping take care of your pup in a safe, loving, and FUN environment while you tend to your busy lifestyle!


Surf’s Pup Doggie Lounge is here when you need with an “On-Call” Doggie Day Care option for our clients, several hiking packages that can be tailored to meet each dog’s specific needs, and we offer solo Adventure options for dogs that need more one-on-one care and attention.  We NEVER discriminate based on breed (we love our Pittiebulls!!) and we welcome all doggies of all ages and sizes all the time!! 


When you book with us, you are instant Surf’s Pup family, so call or text us today and let’s get to playtime!!

Hi I am Susan!  I have a love of dogs that goes back a lifetime! I live in restricted housing, and not able to have my own animals currently, and love to help with in home care of your pets. I have local customers and friends who trust me to care for their babies as I would care for my own. I am Aunti Sue to so many lovies in the area. I also provide care for special needs dogs and other pets. 

Susan is also the very important DOGmother for the Surf's Pup Doggies, Mystertee and Lily!

"Hey Janis, just wanted to let you know we used Susan to take care of our dogs when we were gone. She was great!! Thanks again for the referral. My one dog had acl surgery about 3 weeks before we left and she did great with him and was willing to do whatever it took." ~Alan, happy client
