Wow! What can I say but Cyd is P-A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I am a neurotic, over-bearing and cautious pet parent. Cyd proved that even I can trust someone other then me or my wife to watch our little pup. We went to U.K. for 16 days over Christmas and New Year's, and Cyd was a wonderful and calming pet-sitter.

COMMUNICATION: Cyd answered emails, texts or phone calls in a prompt manner. I never waited more than ...

We were so happy to have Cyd come over to take care of our senior pooch. She relaxed and spent plenty of quality time with him on his home turf. He wasn't even stressed out when we returned. Wonderful experience overall.

When Cyd watches your pet

I am an active vibrant senior that has been a pet person all of my life. Most pets are drawn to my calm demeanor and loving heart.

My two last pets, lived to be 22 (cat) and 18 (dog). I must be doing something right.

Being semi retired allows me the luxury of being able to spend the entire time with them. The only exceptions would be errands or groceries for an hour or two.

I have taken care of several special needs dogs. A few examples are deafness, diabetes and blindness,
