About silvia

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Having worked at an animal hospital I discovered the joys of pet sitting and visited client homes for quite a few years, however I always felt bad leaving them. When we discovered Dogvacay I jumped at the chance to nurture a pet in our own home.We look at them as our grandchildren and sometime I forget they can be left alone. We enjoy each other with a little spoiling and lots of loving and at times the real grandchildren do come and play with them .
I work from home so we are always together and that makes them comfortable right away.
Please keep in mind we don't have a fenced in yard so if that is what your pet is used to then this may not be a good fit for them as we like to spend as much time as possible with our new family member.
-Our long walks are mainly in the morning , then we go out as needed. On the longer stays I continue with puppy training you have started and especially walking on the leash without pulling. I use Ceasar's way and they respond well to it.There is no extra charge for this
Sometimes I feel like Dr. Doolittle as they follow me around no matter what I'm doing .We want them to be as comfortable as possible so they live here just as they would at home.
*I do ask that they come freshly bathed and nails cut and of course vaccines and flea treatment is a must.Thank you for considering me.

NEW POLICY WITH PUPPIES UNDER 1 YEAR OLD: Due to the extra work keeping an eye on them and accidents the moment I look away there will be an additional $15 per day charge. I take them out at least every 2 hours. Some see it as play time and forget why they are out there, then a minute after coming in they go.Thank you for understanding

Awesome as always! Max loves it over at Silvia's!
Rudy has stayed with Silvia and her husband twice, and he has always enjoyed his time in their home. The last reservation was booked a couple days before when a friend cancelled dog sitting last minute. Silvia was very flexible arranging drop-off/pick-up times that worked best for me. She took Rudy on a daily walk, gave him his meds and lots of affection. Plus, she sends almost daily texts to update me on how he's doing along with a picture. Will definitely book again!

Silvia was an absolute gem! We were so lucky to find her for our 3 year old Yorkie/chihuahua, Yoda. After leaving him in a kennel for our last vacation, we knew that we needed to find an alternative for Yoda. He had the best time at Silvia's! She sent us pictures multiple times a day, and we loved seeing what he was up to. Yoda doesn't like men, but he really took to her husband. He got exactly what he needed, lots of love and affection. We couldn't be happier, and we will definitely leave him with Silvia again!
