About Cynthia

42 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
You provide the pet, I provide the love.
I absolutely adore dogs and suddenly find myself without one. I've had dogs for the last 42 years and have cherished each pet into their golden years. I would like to share that love an adoration with your pet.
I have a home centrally located in Barton Hills. Totally fenced in yard, concrete floors and plenty of AC. Dogs are never left out in the heat.
When you bring your pet to my house it is the equivalent of going to Grandma's house. In my case "Nanny Cindy's". I believe in lots of love, petting, scratching, snuggling and most importantly, walks for lots of sniffing and exercise. My home overlooks the Barton Creek so we have beautiful views and exceptional routes for walking.
Although I board dogs 24/7 my Day Care and contact hours are 7 am- 7 pm. If you are requesting info or trying to make a reservation during the night I will respond early the next morning.
My goal is to be a pet sitter that you can always depend on. If you have an extended vacation you are planning or a family emergency I am is here for you.
Here is my schedule. We get up and have an early morning walk. If your dog is old it may be only to the end of the block. If your dog is young and raring to go I can walk them up to 30-45 minutes depending on heat index. We come back and have breakfast, then I work in my upholstery shop which is attached to the kitchen. My doggy guest usually hang out in the den/ kitchen and enjoy watching me work while they lounge. LOL Since I work from home there is always time for lots of potty breaks and sniffing. When the weather is nice I keep the sliding glass door partially open so dogs can freely roam inside and out. Lunchtime we play in the back yard. Dinner is at 6 with a short walk, then we snuggle to PBS on the couch for an hour or so. Bedtime is where ever they like. I normally ask you to bring their bed to put in the common area just so they have that security. If your special friend would like to sleep in my bed they are most welcome.
My pet limit goes by seasonal demand. My goal is to give each one of my pet guests the love and attention they deserve. If I am boarding dogs from different homes I may give you a call to confirm that they are dog friendly.
For new guests I prefer for you to drop off your pet early in the day. This allows your "family member/ pet" the opportunity to adjust and learn their way around my home and adjust to their new surroundings. It also allows me to take them for a walk and spend some time with them before bed time.
I'm basically home all the time. When your special friend comes to visit "Nanny Cindy" they will be the center of my universe.

First time user and can say without hesitation that we will use Cindy again to care for our energetic dog. She was attentive to my dog's needs (walking him twice a day, has good sized fenced yard for him to run around with new dog buddies and just (walking him twice a day, has good sized fenced yard for him to run around with new dog buddies and just loving on him) as well as mine with timely communication. It is obvious she really enjoys the companionship of dogs in her care.

Cindy treated my dog with love, respect and patience. He absolutely loves Nanny Cindy and that makes leaving him so much easier. From the moment I enter Cindy's home to drop off Nico I feel at ease, comfortable and she listens to my explanations enter Cindy's home to drop off Nico I feel at ease, comfortable and she listens to my explanations of my canine child. I would trust Cindy with the key to my house, which says a lot.
I grew up on a farm and have seen many people treat animals in different ways so when I say that I 100% trust my host, I say it from a place in my conscience and heart.
