Our experience with Sylvia was wonderful! She took great care of our dog at her home for a week- lots of walks (even in bad weather), gave him needed medicine, and even a bath. She sent lots of pictures and videos, and responded within 1-2 minutes to any message I sent. Our dog came home happy and clean. I fully recommend Sylvia.
I recommend Sylvia without any reservations. She sent me tons of videos and pictures, helped socialize my shelter pup, regularly accommodates my schedule and my pup's varied and difficult health needs, and my dog absolutely loves her and her family. I cannot recommend her services enough. I just looked through and believe I have used her as a dog sitter over ten times and each time my pup comes back looking happier and healthier.
I can't stress enough how great my experience with Sylvia consistently is. I've used her services every single time I go out of town, which recently has been quite frequently. I get regular updates on my pup with pictures and videos, my dog gets impeccable care (directions followed to the letter, extra care given), and my dog always comes home looking happier and healthier from time spent with her. She goes above and beyond to take care of my dog. My dog also has several health and behavioral problems and she manages them with ease.

Can't recommend her enough- feel absolutely comfortable leaving my mischievous pitbull with her for long periods of time.
Sylvia was extremely thoughtful and I could see that her experience kicked in as soon as I dropped my dog off (she immediately cleaned up a mess my dog made and asked whether my dog had been fed and walked for the evening and how much food to give my dog at every feeding - questions other sitters hadn't thought of asking me). I received daily pictures and videos keeping me updated as I was out of the country and felt very comfortable knowing that Sylvia was on top of things. I would recommend Sylvia to anyone who wants their dog to be well taken care of and entertained!
Afaf was awesome and so loving with Luna (5 month lab). She was also very understanding of my schedule and logistical challenges during her stay. Luna appeared to have a great time and seemed very comfortable with her. Afaf has family who live close to her and share the same love Afaf has for dogs. There is a park close to her house, where Luna enjoyed plenty of walks. This was all very helpful for my puppy's socialization. She is knowledgeable and kept me updated daily with plenty of pictures (this definitely helped with my separation anxiety). I will definitely book again with her. As a matter of fact she will now be my go to dog-sitter.
I was very very pleased with the services of Sylvia. First of all, she responded in 2 minutes, took a same day reservation when I was in a pinch and really needed someone. And hour into leaving my dog with her, Sylvia already had her in the park playing sending me pictures. Awesome! I have a pretty high energy big breed and she handled her with ease. So nice, respectful and flexible with pickup/drop off times. This is my go to boarder now. If you need a sitter, DO NOT HESITATE. Sylvia is awesome.
We left our Shasta with Afaf for 15 days . She was awesome . She regularly updated us about Shasta ( puppy of 5 month old) . She bought toys and a good leash for her , so Shata will not be uncomfortable . I will use Afaf again for next trip ..
great experience!
Second time I've used her services, and second time I was equally pleased! Highly recommend!
Afaf took really good care of my dog, she was available at last minute and was very accommodating. She kept me updated through pics of my dog during my whole trip. Overall very happy and satisfied.
She regularly updated me on how Bhuma was doing, with pictures, and called me at appropriate times to inquire about whether certain things were normal with Bhuma. Her family also seemed very engaged, and I think Bhuma went for more walks than she normally does, which is great! Bhuma came home very happy.
