Brent and I absolutely love our pets beyond words. We also love fostering and volunteering with Southwest Collie and Sheltie Rescue, as a matter of fact, volunteering with rescue is what lead us to launching Pawfessional Services LLC! We have been volunteering, fostering and pet sitting for over 20 years. Rescue has been a huge influence in ours life, it has taught me patience, knowledge and care for sick and shy animals, caring for animals with special needs and above all compassion for both animals and people.
We currently have 2 shelties in our family, Cash is about 10 years old and Trixie, is 4 years old. We foster a special needs sheltie named Dougie. We have had kitties, reptiles and fish over the years. We both grew up in a small farming community in Illinois, where both of our parents owned horses and livestock, so we have been exposed to a lot of other critters our whole lives and love them all! We live in a nice home that we designed around having our animals living in it with us and our fur guests too! We have installed cameras to help us monitor our home and animals. Our yard is completely fenced and secure as well.
"Cindy the owner of Pawfessional is absolutely passionate about animals!"
"So nice to go on a trip and know I don't have to worry about my 3 shelties. They are safe, happy, played with and yes, loved."
I never worry when my dog is with Cindy and Brent. He’s loved and cared for as part of the family. Cindy’s treats are a must!
"On spur of moment, Cindy allowed my 2 shelties into her home for a weekend. She sent me pictures via text of how they were getting along, and when I picked them up my two were just 'part of the gang'. Love Cindy!!!!"
My late dog Angus loved staying with Cindy. I'm looking forward to taking my new dog Miranda there for pet sitting. Meanwhile she loves the treats Cindy makes.
We love Cindy! She is absolutely the best! She has always taken the best care of our puppy and we are extremely grateful for her!
"Cindy is great with all dogs and has amazing patience with dogs that have special needs or behavioral issues. I highly recommended."
"Any dog would be lucky to spend time with Cindy and Brent. They are kind and experienced dog lovers with a lovely house and yard. Having Cindy visit them in their own home would also be a treat."
Wish I could have selected more then 3. She always comes through and my dog love going her and her husband. Always happy to see her and spend time with them.
Cindy is an amazing 2nd mom to my basset hound Ellie. I trust Cindy completely. Ellie loves to stay with her 2nd mom and she loves playing with her new friends. I recommend Cindy to everyone I know who needs a safe and loving pet sitter. You can't go wrong with Cindy and Brent. They are the very best!
Toby enjoys both his "vacations" at Pawfessional Services along with the dog treats that Cindy bakes. He is a regular treat customer as we place orders for the yummy dog treats often
Cindy has been taking care of our dogs while were out of town since 2018. She comes twice a day feeds them and spends time with them. She also cleans up the patio after the dogs have been outside. She leaves a journal on the counter of all the activity that happened during her visit. She even at times sends photo's or short videos. It is such peace of mind knowing they are in her care while were gone. I actually check with her first to see if she's available before I even book a trip!
