About Sylvia

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Moved to the area 2 years ago and we love it! Took care of many dogs before coming to Colorado and intend to continue doing the same in our new home! I work from home so your pup will not be unattended.

I am comfortable with large dogs and love puppies but have to limit small dogs to at least 15 lbs-more for their own safety more than any thing else. My dog, Taina, is very playful and I wouldn't want to have any accidents with little doggies.

Our yard is completely fenced in with a 6'ft fence all around. Please make sure that your dog is current on all vaccines, including Rabies and also current on Heartworm and Flea & Tick preventatives.

House training is a must. If you use a crate with your dog, please make sure to bring it with you as I do not have a crate at home.

If interested, please contact me for a meet and greet!

Sylvia is great, easy going, east to work with. She has a huge back yard and dog friendly home. I would definitely ask Sylvia to take care of Bobo for future vacations.
Sylvia was great! My dog has an immune deficiency and she did a great job with him and his medicine. She was great about sending videos and pictures the entire time I was gone. I would highly recommend Sylvia to anyone who needs a sitter for their dog while they are away.

She made everything easy and the dogs were well cared for.
It was quick and easy to book with Sylvia. This was our first time and a little nervous. Everything went well and will recommend/use her again in the future. 2 thumbs up!
Wonderful, as usual.
This was Dusty's first time staying with Sylvia and our first DogVacay experience and everything went really well. Sylvia kept us posted frequently on how Dusty was doing and he got right back into our routine here at home afterwards, which I think is a really good sign. We will definitely use Sylvia again.

Sylvia did a wonderful job taking care of our dog in her home for five days. She was easy to communicate with and answered all of my questions. Our dog was happy, clean, and obviously well cared for when I picked her up. I highly recommend Sylvia.
She was great! Though it was Christmas, she kept us informed with regular pupdates! Our dog was incredibly anxious and easily overwhelmed by other dogs, but by the time we came to pick her up she was running and playing in the back yard. I think she toughened up :)

Sylvia and her family made our dog, Charlie, feel right at home. Sylvia sent pictures every day which helped calm our nerves. When we picked him up, I think Charlie missed the friends he made during his stay with Sylvia. We will definitely book again when we need a sitter!

Sylvia continues to be great and was willing to refund our money when our vacation got cut short!
It was great! My dog came home all worn out from playing so much. She sent regular pictures as well. I can tell he was well cared for.
Will definitely have Sylvia care for my dog again. She took him at short notice, which was great. My dog came home happy and tired. Thank you Sylvia!
Sylvia was, again, a fine Dog Vacay host.
My dog, Cinna, took to Sylvia immediately. Sylvia's house was clean. Her large yard and deck provided a great place for Cinna to hang out. Sylvia posted photos of Cinna regularly during her stay and Cinna looked happy and content. Cinna was happy to see me when I picked her up. It was obvious from Cinna's demeanor when I picked her up that she had a pleasant time and was well taken care of. I would highly recommend Sylvia as a dog sitter.

best place ever to keep my dog ,he came back very happy the best part is the backyard is big and she has her own dog so my dog is not lonely he has friend to play ..loved this place
Sylvia too great care of my 15-year-old cocker Joey for almost 2 weeks. She sent me pictures throughout, which was reassuring that he was being well taken care of. Sylvia has a nice fenced-in backyard for the dogs to play in and lives in a nice quiet neighborhood. Joey requires both eye and ear medication and both his eyes and ears were in great shape when I picked him up. Great job!!

Sylvia was very friendly and answered all of our questions. She sent lots of picture updates and was flexible about drop-off and pick-up times. Skittles came home happy!
Sylvia took great care of our 13 year old Golden Retreiver. He likes playing with other friendly dogs and hanging out in the big, fenced back yard. He was very happy staying there and will be going back again soon.
Sylvia took great care of Sophie and Smokey...They were happy, well fed, and well adjusted...very different from how they returned from boarding at a kennel. I'm a Dog Vacay user from this point on!
Sylvia was very responsive and able to quickly step in for a last minute booking. Our dog enjoyed his stay and came home tired. We will definitely choose her again.
Sylvia took great care of our one year old Golden. She sent pictures, kept in touch and made sure Ollie was well entertained. She was just wonderful!!
Sylvia was a great host to our puppy! She was very accommodating and sent frequent picture updates. Our pup came back tired and happy! Thank you Sylvia!
This was our first experience having someone else board/care for our beloved pet. As hard as it was to drive away without him , Sylvia and family made us feel confident that he would be well cared for. Sylvia updated us with text messages and photos while he was in her care. We appreciate Sylvia and her attentiveness and will use her in the future.

Sylvia was great! She was very nice, she sent me pictures of my dog the whole time I was gone, and if she had any questions or anything, she would text me and let me know. I'll definitely leave my dog with her again :)
Sylvia was amazing. My dog is very playful and she was so patient with him. She even put my dogs comfort over her own. I would recommend her to anyone.
She took great care of my dog. Asked the right questions based on his profile and made sure he got his walks. She sent pictures and provided updates. I had no worries about his supervision.
Sylvia was very caring and understood our concerns about leaving our dog. It was his first time away from us and she was sensitive to that. She was loving and took great care of him. When we picked him up he was content and we could tell he felt safe. We felt more relaxed while we were away knowing that he was in such great hands!

Sylvia was great! Brody had a wonderful time with her and it eased my mind leaving him for the first time knowing he was with her and her family! She sent me pictures during Brody's stay which goes above and beyond. I highly recommend her to anyone!
Sylvia was great with Bailey -- he came home tired because of all of the fun he had!
Sylvia was very accommodating and flexible with us this weekend. And our dogs had a great time! They came home tired and happy.
Sylvia was AWESOME! She was very easy to work with and our dog had a wonderful time with she and her pup. She sent us tons of pictures via text while he stayed with her and he came back to us very relaxed and happy. He had a great time!

Thank you so much!
