About Sylvie

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home so have tons of time (and energy!) to play with your pup! Experienced handler, I walk dogs for Austin Humane Society and have experience with positive reinforcement training.

I can take small dogs into my home - but more often: I come to you! Junior (my 20 pound terrier mix) and I will stay in your home, make sure things are safe and well-cared for, water plants, bring in the mail, etc. I only require wifi so that I can report to my online job.

I work (from home) afternoons and evenings, so your pup will have company nearly all the time!

I am also available for dog walking or pet visits before noon most days. Lately some of my favorite clients are dogs with special needs - those recovering from surgery, aged, disabled, etc.

Let's discuss your pets' needs; I look forward to meeting them!

Sylvie is the BEST! I won't use anyone else except her to watch my dog.
Sylvie was great with Tonks. She sent great pics everyday of their walks, and hanging out. She helped work with Tonks on her walks, and some basic command work. Sylvie provides an excellent environment for pets and really cares about what she does. I will use her anytime she is available.

DogVacay is awesome. It is so easy and you can pay online. It is such a nice environment and our sweet dog feels right at home. Our hostess, Sylvie, is so loving and her passion for animals is amazing. She sent me pictures of Sparky everyday just to show that he was doing well. It was a great way to send us an "update" of our dog :)

Sylvie was amazing!
She is knowledgeable about dogs and their care. She provided loving, responsible care and guidance for our dog. We received pictures and updates at least once a day. We highly recommend her. We will use her again with complete confidence and trust.

Sylvie was amazing! I got so many pictures from her, and my dog had all kinds of adventures. She was really flexible and accommodating about drop-off and pick-up, and worked with me even though I was gone for a long time (three weeks). She is clearly someone who loves animals, and I'd recommend her to anyone looking for someone responsible and friendly to entrust with their pets without hesitation.
