Cindy was very helpful and kind. She picked my dog up from my house since we were out of town and took great care of her while we were gone. I loved getting a picture texted every day and could tell that my dog was very happy.
Cindy and Ken welcomed our big, goofy Great Dane into their home as if he was their own. We were so comforted while on vacation with the numerous pictures and videos they sent of McGriff being cuddled by either them or their dog, Riley. Not once did we second guess our decision to leave our gentle giant in their care. From lots of playtime in their huge fenced in backyard to comfy downtime on their laps, we're certain McGriff had a great time!

We were so worried that Cus would have a problem as he was never boarded before and was not use to little children, other dogs or strangers.
Cus is a very fussy ,temperamental little Min Pin, 13 years old and tends to be very protective.
My wife passed away about a year ago and Cus really misses her.
Surprisingly, Cindy was quick to win over the little guy and Cus was right at home and got along just fine with Cindy's dog Riley. Cindy is terrific and cared for Cus as if he was her own. Cindy also let Cus sleep with her which was a huge comfort to both us and him.
We were really pleased with the loving care and attention that Cindy provided for Cus and would definitely recommend her as a sitter for any one in need of this service. We would also definitely use her again, as she is very knowledgeable and provided an outstanding service.
Cus actually missed Cindy for the first several hours when we returned home.

Cindy, Ken & Riley, thank you again.

Much Appreciated!

Jim, Jason & Justin Weekes

Cindy and Ken do an awesome job taking care of our dogs when we're away. Sophie and Charlie had a great time playing with the other dogs in the back yard and came home tired and happy. We're so happy we found Cindy through DogVacay!!
Cindy was wonderful with Houdini. Her space is perfectly set up for canine guests. She and Ken are caring and their love of dogs is clear. This was Houdini's first stay with Cindy and I was not worried at all. Cindy sent me videos and photos of him playing with another dog in the yard.

We are so happy we found Cindy. She took such great care of our crazy girl Sophie. We would highly recommend her to anyone. Before the sit, she took the time to get to know our dog as well as our family. She took my girl in and treated her like a member of her family. This is exactly what we were looking for. Sophie came home exhausted from playing and having a great time in Cindys yard. Anyone that can tire out Sophie gets an A+ !!!

My dog, Smitty, had a great overnight stay with Cindy. He was well cared for and treated like one of the family. I loved the outdoor space Cindy had-a large fenced backyard with plenty of room to run around and explore. Cindy allowed my dog to have open access inside her home as well. I received photos and videos of Smitty on walks and playing outside and indoor pictures of Smitty laying on their couch receiving lots of petting and loving attention. I highly recommend Cindy as a caretaker for your pet! I will likely contact Cindy in the future.

I would not hesitate to recommend Cindy to care for your dog. Tucker had a great time during his stay. It was as if he never left home. Plenty of room to roam and play. I even received daily pictures and updates.
Cindy and her husband were wonderful! Tydus had a great time with them. We will definitely use them again.
We were very pleased with our dogsitting experience at Cindy's. Our dog enjoyed lots of walks and outdoor playtime, as well as socializing with Cindy's dog. In addition, we enjoyed the photo updates we received, keeping us assured that all was going well!!

I can't speak highly enough about Cindy! This was my best DogVacay experience. She took such good care of my (kinda high maintenance) dog Remy! She was professional and kind, and I could tell she truly cared about the dogs', and owner's, well-being. Remy had such a great time playing with her dog, and he came home happy and tired! She has the best yard for the dogs to play in, and I wasn't worried one bit while I was away. I'm looking forward to the next time Remy can stay there!

Cindy was amazing with our puppy. Her home has lots of great space for jumping and playing. Cindy helped keep us apprised of our baby throughout the day, help put us at ease as this was our first time leaving him with a sitter overnight (outside of our home). Loved on him and gave him extra attention as we would at home. We know that Hunter loved this experience

My dog Dexter just had a week stay with Cindy. I was sent daily photos and/or videos so I could see how he was doing. He had an wonderful week getting plenty of exercise and had a great time playing with Riley and the other dogs staying there. I will definitely book with Cindy for future vacations.

I can't say enough good words about Cindy. My little Yorkie, Benny, is an old guy with a young soul. It was hard to leave him but soon after I did Cindy started sending me videos and photos. I saw how happy he looked and I immediately knew Cindy was the sitter for him! He looked so healthy and happy when I picked him up. Gained much needed weight as he had recently been sick prior to his visit. I am very pleased with her care of my little guy. No doubt if I need a fur sitter again she will definitely be my choice again! Kudos Cindy!

I almost never need to board my 5 year old Aussie...but this was one of those rare times. I found this site on line and loved the idea of her going into someones home instead of a kennel. I took my girl there for a visit before the stay to see how she would like it....and it was a no brainer. In fact, when I went to drop her off....she started whining when we pulled into the drive and couldn't wait to get inside. Cindy was a true dog person and the place was a great setup with a fenced yard. I don't how it could have been better.

Theo had another wonderful stay with Cindy, and his new BFF, Riley. He got excited as soon as we pulled in their driveway! Leaving him is easier now that we've found a sitter who we're comfortable with. Thank you Cindy!
Elijah had another great stay with Cindy! This was the second time that we used her. Elijah was excited when we pulled into her driveway, I think he knew where we were and was excited to be back. He ran around the yard, greeted the other pups and wandered right into the house like it was his. We knew he would be fine staying there again. When we picked him up the next day, he laid down in the backseat right away - he was so tired from all the playing the day before!

Thank you SO much Cindy for taking such great care of Reece while we were away! It was very comforting to see the great pictures and videos come through of her having blast at your house. I know our future vacations and time away will be that much sweeter knowing that we have the BEST puppy sitter ever! Our family is looking forward to booking with you again soon and is SO grateful that we found you! Thanks again you are awesome:)

Very happy with Cindy.
My dog was tired but happy when I picked him up. Her place is paradise for dogs and Cindy is sweet. My dog didn't come home stressed out like in the pass when he went to other boarding places. Positive experience!! My dog found another home away from home. Thank you Cindy.

Cindy took great care of our dog Willow. She has a lovely house and huge yard, and her dog Riley is very sweet. She kept us updated and took time at the beginning to get to know Willow. Highly recommended!
Cindy was great! She was so accommodating to us and so great with Bella! Bella is very timid and shy, and Cindy and her husband were patient and kind to her. They tried very hard to make her feel comfortable and safe while she was with them. Cindy sent us periodic updates on how Bella was doing. We are very happy with Cindy and how she cared for our little girl!

We met Cindy a few days before we dropped off Luke the dog, she was very friendly and loving of Luke. We received several pictures and videos of Luke throughout his stay. Luke had a fabulous Time and we will be rebooking with her in August! Highly recommended.

This was our first time leaving Theo overnight, and we were completely comfortable as soon as we met Cindy and Ken. Theo came home happy and exhausted, and we can tell he had a great time and lots of play time. We'd recommend Cindy and Ken without hesitation, in fact, we've already booked Theo's next stay! The daily photos and videos were an added bonus too!

Our little Shih-tzu loved staying at Cindy's! It was a fantastic experience from beginning to end.
Cindy requires a meet up before accepting a stay and it was a good time to see if my dog would like staying with Cindy.
I have never boarded my dog before because she is very wary of new people and doesn't like other dogs. My dog is also used to sleeping in my child's room and I worry about her being stuck in a kennel overnight without human interaction. I had no worries at Cindy's. It was almost like being at home.
My dog was able to be inside or outside, was able to sleep with people, was able to hang out around people all day, was pampered and loved, and I got pictures from Cindy everyday showing my dog enjoying her stay.
Cindy was very easy to work with and was flexible with drop-off times and pick-up times. She was quick to respond to requests and questions. I will definitely board my dog with Cindy again!

Thanks again Cindy and Ken. Toby misses you guys and Riley. :)
We were very happy with Cindy and our dogs came home relaxed and happy. She is organized and obviously loves dogs. She gave both our pups individual attention, took them for walks and kept an eye on their behavior to make sure they were okay. So thankful to have found such a wonderful host! Will definitely use her again.

Thank you so much for taking such great care of Mugzy. Cindy and her family were amazing! We received a daily pic and updates, which was such a relief since he is like our "4th" child ;) He had daily walks and she made him feel at home. We will definitely use Cindy again!!!

Our dog, Elijah, had a great stay with Cindy! We dropped him off on a Friday evening and he was very excited to be back. We had stopped by a couple of weeks prior for a meet and greet with her and her dog. Cindy told us he did very well and got along with everyone and her dog. She sent us a couple of photos of him going for walks and playing in the yard. She even sent us a video of him running around in her huge backyard. When we picked him up on Sunday he fell asleep in the backseat of the car right away! He seemed like his normal happy self, unlike when we have taken him to a general dog boarding facility. He has separation anxiety and Cindy was very willing to stay with him the entire time to keep him comfortable. We would definitely recommend Cindy to a friend.

Cindy was a wonderful sitter! Our dog Sheila had a great time during her stay and loved having other dogs to play with. I received many pictures and videos throughout the time we were away which put our minds at ease. We will definitely be booking with her again for our next vacation!

Cindy was great. She took Logan for walks, let him run outside in the big fenced yard and play with her dog. He came home happy and tried.
Cindy is wonderful. Sawyer was very comfortable with her and enjoyed playing with her dog Riley. We would definitely recommend her. We will be calling her again soon. Sheila Brazie
