About Sylvia

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I will provide a safe, clean, and fun environment for your dog. They will have countless hours of backyard play time with our own Labrador Retrievers and Chihuahua, and daily walks around my neighborhood.

Clean, dog beds for them to sleep on INSIDE! No dog will sleep outside or in the garage. Ever. We provide a warm, caring, home environment, where your dog will be part of OUR family.

I was also a foster and volunteer for the California Animal Rescue, based in Santa Rosa. I have fostered ten dogs, which have all been successfully adopted, the last one being adopted by us!

Highly recommended. She has 2 very mellow labs and the cutest, friendliest chihuahua you'll ever meet. Your dog will feel right at home.
My wife and I just got back from a great weekend in the Russian River area. I left our dog, Yogi, an energetic black lab/pointer with Sylvia and her family for an overnight. Yogi could not have had a better time with her two labs! The reason I know this is that right when he got in the car after we picked him up, he passed out and didn't wake up until the following morning! He got so much play time and was the happiest I have seen him coming out of a dogvacay...Sylvia is a great person with a great family and I would trust them with Yogi for any length of stay. Thanks so much! - Bryan

Sylvia took Zelda at the last minute (my fault) for which I was very thankful. Zelda seemed to have a great time playing with Sylvia's labs. I worry about Zelda's over-energetic behavior, but felt assured Sylvia could handle her.
Sylvia is a fantastic host! We needed someone to watch our dog Buddy with very little notice for a same-day daytime-only reservation. That night, we changed our mind and asked if we could leave him overnight, change the reservation, and pay the difference, and although we were prepared to pick him up in case she said no, Sylvia was extremely flexible and agreed to watch Buddy overnight.

We picked him up the next day and he was in a great mood and seemed like he really enjoyed his stay. Sylvia and her family also seemed like they had a great time with our dog.

Next time we are in the area (we don't live around here) and need someone to watch Buddy again, we will definitely want Sylvia and her family to be his host again.

Sylvia was an amazing host when she watched my dog on two occasions. I could tell my dog loved staying with her and her family since she got excited the second time we pulled up and ran in and made herself at home! Sylvia Was able to help me out even though it was a last minute reservation, and she was very accommodating of my schedule! I dont think i could say enough good things about my dogs and my experience, it was easy and Stress free. I would highly recommend Sylvia if you need someone to watch your dog while your away. You can be happy knowing she treats them like her own dogs and she also kept me updated with texts and photos throughout my vacation!

Sylvia was wonderful with Apollo, very understanding, and confident that she would be able to take great care of Apollo. Would highly recommend Sylvia, very knowlegable about the dogs and interacting with her. Willing to go the extra mile to insure that our dog had a great time.
Looking forward to using Sylvia again. Thank you.
