About Sylvia

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have cared for dogs since I was little and they have always been a part of my life. I have experience caring for other people's pets in my home, (all sizes and breeds) and it has been a rewarding and fun experience. Your pet will experience play, cuddle, and exercise in my home to his/her hearts desire! It is always sad to see them go. We love repeat clients and my dog loves making new friends! I have a large yard with plenty of space to play fetch, run, explore, or sun bathe. Constant fresh water is provided and special requests for exercise/diet/medication/special attention is always accommodated. Set up a Meet and greet with me!

Sylvia and her husband are great hosts, will definetly go back.
My dog Lacey had a good stay at Sylvia's. I was visiting San Jose and needed to board Lacey for 1 night. Sylvia was good with communication and even sent me 2 pictures of Lacey. I would definitely have Lacey stay there again.
Was great to find Sylvia an her family, we saw Kim really happy, Sylvia always sent UD updates about Kim AMD Athlon the end when we picked Kim we saw him happy, thanks a lot
Our dog Skip seemed very happy with Sylvia and Donald. They were very responsive to our requests and kept us updated on Skip's visit with photos and messages. We would recommend them to anyone!
Our two pups had a wonderful time with Sylvia and her family! It was great to receive frequent photos and updates during their stay. Sylvia was quick to respond to my inquiries and was very accommodating with our travel schedule. We will definitely take them back when we travel again. Highly recommend!
This was my best DogVacay experience to date. My judgment is really based on my dogs reaction when I pick him up. He is 17 and a half now and if not exercised twice a day gets stiff in the joints. When I picked him up he was frisky and happy. I could tell he had been well taken care of. Also, the family that had him were very friendly and just good people. I would leave Angus with them again in a heartbeat.
Our fur baby had a wonderful experience with Sylvia. We definitely trust her to care for our dog again.
It was great to get frequent photo updates of Rufus and he slept well when we got home! It was nice to know that he was well cared for.
I had already written a review but just want to add that I'm a repeat guest.

In a way I don't want to write a review because I don't want other guests taking up our spot (haha). Seriously though, Sylvia and Donald are awesome and I can't think of better people to entrust my puppy.
Sylvia and Donald are wonderful wonderful people and they're very experienced with dogs. My puppy enjoys (loves) the time at their place and spending the day with Jack. I trust them with my dog. They have a great setup and are very flexible. We also see eye to eye in how we raise our respective dogs so that makes it that much better.
Washington had a great time here! Washington is currently only 8 months and very rambunctious, but he really enjoyed playing with Jack (Sylvia's dog) and came home tired and happy at the end of the vacation.
My dog loves spending time in Sylvia's home! They provide great and flexible care with photo updates throughout the day. My pup comes home happy and exhausted and my mind is put at ease knowing she is in good hands. Thank you!
Sylvia takes great care of our pups while they are with her. We have one spunky whippet and one cranky papillon and both come home happy!
Great hosts, very friendly, fantastic setup for active and social dogs
Tofu had a good time with Jack ! And looks like he used all the energy there cuz he sleeps a lot after he is home :)
Our dog Snoopy was very well cared for. He was with Sylvia and her family for 10 days. During his stay she sent pictures of how he was doing and responded quickly to my inquires. We will definitely take Snoopy back when we travel again.
My daughter's dog Kai seemed happy and well taken care of. We really appreciate Sylvia and her husband Donald taking care of Kai for two days/nights. We will definitely contact Sylvia again when we need a sitter for Kai.
Sylvia took great care of our pup and is very reliable.
Sylvia was flexible and accommodating with the times etc. Received timely photos and videos. Dog is safe and happy to be home. Thanks to Sylvia.
Lea loved staying with Sylvia and her family! We loved seeing the pictures of her safe and happy while we were away! We will definitely use Sylvia again!
We hired Sylvia last minute for a 30 minute walk of our two dogs since we were going to be away for a long day. She was friendly and sent lots of great pictures of their walk! Would certainly recommend her :)
