Sylvia was pretty flexible around drop-off and pick-up time, which was convenient given my abnormal flight times. She also accepted my last-minute reservation, which was nice. However, my dog came down with two separate infections within 2 days after staying with Sylvia, and he was perfectly fine beforehand. She also returned my dog's crate and bed soaked in urine. Not ideal, on either count. Granted, maybe the infection was completely random, but still kind of suspect. :o/
Sylvia did great job boarding my Maltese puppy. She was very happy when I picked her up. I appreciate Sylvia's help for her flexibility with the schedule. We dropped my puppy at 6am and picked her up at 10pm (due to bad flight time). And Sylvia was very promptly. During the boarding, I texted Sylvia for several times and she responded them very quickly.
Good stay for my dog..overall nice experience
Sylvia is absolutely wonderful! She is very accommodating and a true animal lover! I'm so picky about where my dog Riley stays when we travel and we felt so comfortable leaving our dog with her! I highly reccomend her and will use her exclusively for watching our dog in the future! : ) Thanks again! : )
Tobie's stay with Sylvia is always a pleasant one. She was able to take him with a 1 day advance notice and was extremely flexible with the drop off and pick up times.
Sylvia was very responsive to my emails and texts, very flexible with drop-off/pick-up schedule as well. We are very happy she took great care of my puppy and observant that he is missing mama & papa to show extra love. She also follows the diet plan that we provided, works great for my pup.

Sylvia also make sure the dogs are introduced in an appropriate manner to avoid conflict, and ultimately they played well together. My puppy wasn't too nippy when he got home, unlike other dog boarding services. We will definitely use Sylvia's services again.
Another awesome dogvacay.
Our pup was very happy to go for another visit. Sylvia is a very responsive host that I would recommend to anyone.
Another awesome dogvacay with Sylvia! Lily was happy to go in and very playful when I pick her up.
I was hesitant to use dogvacay in general as I have heard nothing about it from past dog owners that I personally know. However, I saw Sylvia's profile and she was very close to home so I decided to give her a try. Im really glad I did as she was very responsible and attending to my dog's needs. As a dog owner, I am very protective of my dog and wants his needs met accordingly. All I did was provide Sylvia with the information she needed such as my dog's schedule, how he is with other people and with other dogs etc. Sylvia was able to work with it and was able to take care of my dog. Whenever I called she would answer or shoot me a text about how my dog is doing. Whenever she did not answer, she would call me back immediately and answer questions as to how my dog is doing. I will definitely use Sylvia again. I do not think I will go back to using another dog boarding service, I think Sylvia is perfect not only because she is a great dog sitter, but also because of the ambience of her home, and as a pet owner, I can see how she takes good care of her dog and treats her clients' dogs the same way.
I would recommend Sylvia to my friends. She was very quick to respond to my questions and my puppy was very happy to stay with her.
Sylvia did a great job taking care of Tobie. She read all my instructions prior to his reservation and updated me often via text message during the stay. It was great Tobie got to socialize with the other dogs that were staying with her. I'd definitely recommend her to other dog owners.
She really took care my dog well, and kept me posted everyday, so I can feel relieved while I traveling.
