Cindy is AMAZING!!!!! We trust her so much with our 2 doggies! They love her so much and have the best time when they are there! She is very caring with the dogs and always takes pictures and videos! We love Cindy and recommend her to everyone! :)
Cindy watched our pup Jake for 9 days and we were very happy with her services. Jake had a great time with all the other pups. I loved seeing pictures and videos on her Facebook page to show that he was adjusting well and being taken care of. I would definitely recommend Cindy for any of your pet sitting needs.
Cindy watched our older dog over the Thanksgiving weekend and took very good care of her. Nellie received a Thanksgiving treat and was always surrounded by other dogs keeping her company.
Cindy was great! She was wonderful about giving us updates on how Cooper was doing. She sent lots of pictures and messages reassuring me that he was doing good.
We loved our home-like experience with Cindy. We have a rescued, older, and very mellow lab who would be devastated to find himself sitting in a kennel with a bunch of dogs barking around him while we were on vacation. Instead, he got to hang out with a bunch of other dogs in a quiet, cage-free environment. Cindy has a bunch of her own dogs and they are all very well mannered and gave him his space while he adjusted to his new surroundings. When we picked him up, he was completely at ease and did not appear to have been stressed at all. We are grateful for a good place to take him while we are away!
Cindy is Awesome! She has a great set up there at Romping Ranch and both our boys had a great time! I think they are actually more well behaved than when we dropped them off! I feel very comfortable leaving our dogs in Cindys expert care.
Mario had a great time with Cindy. She is very caring and good with dogs. Mario got to exercise a lot, and he is usually too tired playing and he would probably sleep for a long time when I pick him up.
The best
Would definitely book her again, my puppy had a great time and was well taken care of.
I got stuck not being able to get home on the day I was originally scheduled for. 1 quick phone call and Cindy took care of things and I didn't need to worry about my pup. Thank you for the easy communication and great care of Mancha! Danna
Another great stay with Cindy and Family! My pup is a happy, very active 35-40lb Dalmatian that LOVES to stay here. She gets great exercise with the other pups and is always so excited for her visit here. Cindy has a large front area that is fenced and allows Mancha to run around without any concerns.
Thank you for always taking care of my pup as if she were part of your family!!
Sadly this sitter did not work out for me or my pups. If you have bigger dogs that are active, the fence is very low and my dog jumped out of their yard.
Cindy really takes the time to know the dogs staying with her, and to keep them happy during their time with her. She posted regular pictures and videos, so I could watch the fun that my dog was enjoying. My only worry was whether or not my dog would want to come back home!
Cindy was great with our dog. Rambo can be a little quirky, but she took the time to make him feel comfortable. We'd definitely go back!
As always Cindy and family took fantastic care of my spotted baby! She had such a good time that she crashed in her bed as soon as we got home!! That's a sign of a great couple of days if you ask me. Thank you again!!
Our pup loves it here. Cindy is so sweet with him and makes him feel right at home. He has lots of fun and gets to play with other dogs. Cindy's dogs are so sweet and good with him. We always feel safe leaving him in her care.
Oops. I am sorry for missing this review. You're the best Cindy!!
We asked Cindy to look after our two Labradors for three weeks over the Christmas period. We loved that Cindy posted pictures of them throughout their stay, including one video of them getting presents from Santa, which was adorable.

We also asked her to help us correct one of our dogs' behavior (leash reactivity) which we had been struggling to change. She was very successful!

You can notice from our dogs' behavior that they were getting a lot of attention, care and love during their stay, as they have not acted up in ways you hear sometimes happens when dogs get boarded.

To summarize, the dogs loved staying at Cindy's home, and we felt happy and safe throughout as she kept us informed of everything happening. We will definitely ask Cindy to look after Oliver and Floyd again.

Thanks Cindy!
Taco has stayed with Cindy so many times that I would need to take time off work to write all of the good reviews that she deserves. This is Taco's second home -- I moved over an hour away from Cindy but still bring Taco there to stay whenever I can because that's how much he loves it there and that's how awesome Cindy is!!!!!!!! I truly know that Cindy treats Taco and all the other dogs she watches like her own and have 10000000% confidence leaving him there for any period of time. Lots and lots of attention and play time. Both myself and Taco highly highly recommend Cindy, she's the best!!
Cindy was amazing! We had to find someone to watch our 5 month old Lab and it was our first time leaving her. We felt extremely comfortable with Cindy! From the initial meet and greet we knew that she was very knowledgeable and comfortable with dogs, and Maggie (our puppy) felt right at home! When we picked her up 4 days later, she had learned some manners, including how to sit! Cindy was great and I would highly recommend her
Excellent service for dog boarding. However she could be more responsive regarding communications.
Cindy's home was very welcoming for my dog Rocky. He had a ball with the other dogs. Cindy was very caring and Rocky had a good time there.
Cindy provides a calm and caring environment.
Our dog very well taking care of and had a get time.
Skip had a great time! So much nicer to go on vacation and know he was playing with other dogs and sleeping where he is comfortable (on his bed in a bedroom) rather than in a kennel! Loved coming home to a dog that wasnt hoarse from barking the whole time in a kennel!
Outstanding as usual.
Cindy did a great job taking care of our fur baby. She kept us updated with photos of him playing during his stay. He is so tired and worn out from having such a great time!! We will definitely be having Duke stay with Cindy from now on. He got the love and attention that he wouldn't get at a bigger dog hotel.
We are very happy, Cindy really take good care of voli
Cindy was awesome! Our Cuddles was a little afraid of the new environment and the other dogs. Cindy kept very calm and introduced him to everything and the other dogs and he did great! She sent us constant updates with pictures and showed us how much fun he was having. We felt very reassured that that he was in her care. Excellent experience and will definitely use again!
Cindy is very pleasant and has a good setup for the dogs, letting them out to play and get up on the couch and cuddle. The dogs are always happy when I return as though they weren't sent away or anything like that.
I was super nervous about boarding my dog. This was going to be the first time I'd been away from him since I rescued him back in 2013, but Cindy was extremely reassuring, and Spirit seemed comfortable with her right away which made me feel better. Cindy sent me updates and pictures all weekend long, and when I came back to pick him up he was happy and didn't seem to have missed me at all! That tells me everything I need to know. I would recommend Cindy to EVERYONE.
Cindy was very welcoming to Mojo and he thoroughly enjoyed playing with all of the other dogs. Thankyou!
5 stars every time! She was able to accommodate me last minute to watch my puppy and he had a great time. Cindy is the best!!
My puppy LOVED it here. I think he wanted to stay forever. Lots of doggy play time, lots of attention... I can tell he had a great time and I am so happy to have found such a great host. Taco can't wait to come back and play!!!
If you are looking for a great place to leave your pups when you are gone look no further! Cindy and Randy are fantastic and treat them as if they are apart of their own 4 legged family.
Thank you Cindy for taking such great care of Mancha! She had a fantastic time and I know she will be excited to come back and visit.
Cindy was great with our dog, Stella! She was very flexible with when we could drop off and pick up. Stella had a great time and came home exhausted from being allowed to play and have fun rather than being crated. Thank you, Cindy!
This is the second time Cindy has watched my dogs. Since they were somewhat new to the process, I hoped Cindy could watch them again and she was very helpful to get it set up. The dogs got settled fairly quickly and when I returned they were playing with the other dogs. She did mention they did not eat very good but they are not underweight. I would recommend Cindy for a VACAY getaway.
Totally Pawsome! Our second stay at Cindy's home was another successful stay for Lola. When I pick Lola up she is completely relaxed and happy. Cindy is just awesome with dogs and is a really good communicator. Little text updates are just so great to get, when you miss your dog. Thanks again Cindy, we will be back soon!
Our dog always has a gret time. We will come back again next vacation.
Sofie had a wonderful time at Romping Ranch! She made new friends, played in the yard, saw horses and got a very, yummy Christmas dinner.

I was going to take her to a kennel where she usually stays but decided to try out DogVacay. What a great decision! She was very well cared for and while away, I got pics and videos of her, and Cindy was great about providing me with updates about my girl

I will definitely be taking Sofie back and highly recommend Cindy and Romping Ranch for your fur-child.
Buddy was well cared for and enjoyed his time with Cindy, and all the other dogs. We will definitely have Buddy stay there again.
Wow, I was scrambling frantically to find someone to board our husky over Thanksgiving. Cindy not only made our Misha right at home, but actually prepared a special Thanksgiving meal with Turkey and trimmings! Her prices are less than most boarding and your dog will have a much better time. We will be bringing Misha back regularly! So glad I found Dogvacay!
Cindy was paradise at her house. thank you!
Cindy is the best! She's great with dogs, and Loki always has someone to play with while he's there. He always comes back tired from playing all day! She posts pictures up everyday so I can see what how he's doing. I trust her completely and will definitely continue to use her whenever I need to board my furbaby!
Cindy welcomed our dog into her home and cared for him as if he was her own. This was the longest we had ever left him (12 days) and it was so important to us that he receive all of the loving care that he does at home. We are sure that he did. Cindy posted pictures of him on Facebook every day, and we looked forward to seeing them every night. Cindy was also very diligent in attending to his medical and exercise needs. We were very pleased with her service and will leave our dog with her again.
We have never left our canine kids with anyone other then a house/dog sitter. But the opportunity to have Cindy work with our 92-pound Labradoodle with a mind of his own while we were out of town was too good to pass up. He not only came back a new dog, both he and his Labrador Retriever "sister" seem to have had a wonderful, exhausting time with Cindy & her team -- it took a couple of long shampoo sessions to get all of the dirt from their many play sessions out of their coats!
My dog was well taken care of. She was treated just the way we treat her at home. For sure we will use dogvacy and board our dog with Cindy in the future.
I appreciate that you noticed Snicker was ill and needed to be treated before it got worse. I am sorry that she is not trained and will be working with her on not running to the door when someone comes.
Incredible. She is a true dog lover. She introduced Gus (used to be Gustav but...) to everyone out there and he got along famously. She has dogs of all sizes so anyone can fit in. He had more exercise than I could ever give him. She has a wonderful HUGE place for the pups to romp, run, chase, etc. And Cindy make any special arrangement/adjustment you might need for your prize family member -- yeah, I love dogs too.

DO take your dog to Cindy!
Cindy provided a very safe and comfortable setting for our two dogs. She also delivered them to my home in a timely manner so they were home quickly after my return. All in all a very positive experience for both myself and my dogs. Win Win!! Also provided pictures throughout our trip to keep us connected and relaxed that all was well. Thanks Cindy for a great experience.
This is my first time using Dog Vacay and I have to say, I love Cindy and her ranch! Theres lots of space for the dogs to roam and I love that Cindy is constantly around and that she has several dogs of her own to keep my Loki company. He must've had a great time, because he slept all day when I brought him home. Would definitely use her again in the future!
Cindy was great with our dog, Monet! She is very intuitive about animal behavior and dedicated extra time to making sure our dog got adjusted to her impending stay, and was also patient and understanding with scheduling issues that arose. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!!!Thank you, Cindy!
Thank you so much Cindy for taking great care of our fur baby Elvis! Cindy gave us many updates throughout the day which we really appreciated. Elvis came back happy, healthy, and tired from his dog vacay. Thank you!
This was the first host we found and went with through dog vacay. Our dog Buster really enjoyed his time here and Cindy treated and cared for Buster as if he were one of her own. It was nice to see pictures of Buster having fun with the pack while we were away to ease my kids' sadness of having to leave Buster somewhere other than home. I would highly recommend Cindy!
I was very nervous about boarding my dogs since they have never been left with strangers. Cindy immediately put my mind at ease during the meet-n-greet and was really great with my dogs! She took care of my two dogs while I was on vacation, one of which is a rescue dog who can be fearful of other dogs and a bit needy. Cindy was very patient with her and by the time I came back from my vacation she was mingling with the rest of the dogs without hesitation. Cindy took pictures and kept me updated daily. I will definitely be using her again when I need to board my dogs. She is obviously an animal lover and treats all of her guests as her own. Thanks Cindy!
You could not find a more dog friendly person or home! Plenty of tlc given.
Cindy is PHENOMENAL. What a wonderful host...Repo played at their house so much he was tired for a full 3 days after we picked him up! We noticed a huge difference in his responding to commands and just being more mellow and well-behaved. She also gave us great tips and tricks to upkeep his training. You bet we will be sending him back to Cindy for future boarding/day care/training. She knows how to take care of dogs and treated Repo like one of her own. We got constant facebook and text photo updates throughout our vacation so we knew that our pup was doing well and having a great time. She even got him to share with the cat and become friends...that in itself should speak volumes. Thanks so much, Cindy. :)

I can't say enough good things about Cindy, she is loving, fun and warm to all the dogs and clearly has a huge heart for animals. she has an in-depth understanding of how dogs think and why they behave the way they do.

Cindy is very professional, The Meet and Greet, scheduling, communication and ultimately the stay at her home went perfectly! I loved her updates and photos online.

Lola came back exhausted from play and a good time, and looked at me as though I had taken her away from a great vacation.

Cindy is now my go-to care provider, I fully recommend her. This was a fantastic experience for Lola and me, thank you Cindy, and I think Lola misses you!
We left Cindy in charge of 2 Bulldogs for 9 days. She kept us in the loop regularly through text messages and emails. Our bulldogs are on the high maintenance side, requiring daily skin care throughout the day . The dogs are not used to other dogs and behaved aggressively with Cindy' s dogs while they were there but Cindy handled things very well. She and her husband played with our dogs and took really good care of our dogs despite our dogs' behavior with her dogs. Cindy is a very nice person and she can be depended on to look after your dogs.
We could not be happier with our choice to go with Cindy for our furry family member! We went on vacation for a 7 days and wanted to find our dog a home away from home.

Cindy is very experienced with dogs and has a dog training background. Before I brought in my dog Boba she asked me if there was anything she can work on during Boba's stay. I told her that Boba likes to jump. I came back and my dogs jumping problem was going. I was so impressed.

Cindy has a large area were Boba was able to run around. I kidd you not my dog slept for 3 days after I picked her up. Haha

It gets better! Cindy provided me with daily updated pictures of Boba...and provided our food since she found we use the same food for our dogs.

I feel really comfortable taking Boba here when we go on our yearly vacation! Boba can't wait to go Back!!

Sparkles' family is very happy with the care that Cindy gave her. She was loved like she was one of the family. We got updates and pictures while we were away. We didn't worry about Sparkles, although we missed her. We will definitely take Sparkles to "visit" Cindy again. Thanks for the dog vacay.
It was just like leaving the dogs with our own family or friends! Cindy is awesome and your dogs become a part of her family while they are under her care. She sent us pictures daily so we could see how much fun the dogs were having. We definitely recommend her and will use her again in the future.
Cindy and her daughter Breanna took wonderful care of our dog Cleopatra. They are a very caring team. Her daughter Breanna is in college and studying to be a vet, which made me feel a lot more comfortable about leaving my dog in their care. My puppy had other dogs to play with and was well socialized by the experience. I highly recommend Romping Ranch and Love a Labradoodle!
