My name is Silvia and I have a love for dogs!! When your dog boards in my home, he/she becomes part of our family! They will be socialized with my dog, a very gentle choc. lab and our fearless energetic Addy.,We'll go on walks to our nearby park and have ball play in my backyard. If summer is hot, pups will get to have water play. Your dog will be inside for the night and we love to cuddle. I have toys and treats too! I am insured and bonded. I'm a member of Pet Sitters International, which keeps me on top of what I love to do...... Care for dogs!!

Daisy the basset must have had a very busy time with Sylvia and her family, she came home tired! Daisy got along fine with her two dogs and just followed them all around. She will definitely be staying there again.
Silvia was amazing, I was in a bind and she was more than understanding. She's is incredibly organized (yard & house very secure), knowledgeable, compassionate, and most importantly, loves your dog while you're away!

Our dog was so happy to be at Silvia's home, and play with other four legged friends, and when we picked her up, she was well-adjusted and doing great.

An added bonus were the photos we received of our dog while we were gone. What peace of mind!

I've never felt such peace after leaving my doggie behind. Without a doubt, we'll be using Silvia again.
Kali seemed well kept. Nice back yard. Silvia is nice and accommodating.
Silvia was really professional - I was very impressed by her set up when we went for the meet-n-greet. It's great that she not only has a yard that the dogs can run around in but she also takes them for at least one walk a day! It's a good deal for us and our dog was really comfortable staying there. We will definitely be back!
Sylvia took excellent care of our dog and he appeared to have a great time. She has a great setup to accommodate her guests and is very pleasant/easy to work with. This was our first time boarding with her, we are new to the area and would definitely recommend!
We left our 6 month old Sheepadoodle for a week over the Christmas holiday this year and could not be happier. It was his first week away from us, and he was having the best time and was treated as one of her own in her lovely home! We rec'd pictures and updates every day, and even a Christmas photo complete with a Santa hat and bow on our big baby. Frequent park visits and plenty of play with the other dogs kept our Louie happy. We ran into some weather-delayed travel and Sylvia was amazing in taking him for the extra time without a problem. Thanks again Sylvia for everything. I'm sure Louie will be excited to return to your warm and happy home on our next trip away!
The environment (home and family) is warm, friendly and immaculate. It is wonderful that the dogs have a yard with grass and access to a covered patio.

The dogs go for walks twice a day and sometimes to the park.

They leave your family and become part of another family. I couldn't have been happier!
Sylvia took great care of our dog Maddy! Her home was set up well for multiple dogs and she provided us with plenty of updates throughout the week. We will surely use her again!
Penny liked staying w Sylvia very much. She even recognizes her name when I asked her if she liked Sylvia. Cocked head and ears perk up. Sylvia sent pics and texts to us showing Penny was having a good time.
Silvia provided much more than the standard boarding care. We received several photos and updates while our Beagle was in her care. She gave her extra TLC and made sure Lucy was happy in her temporary home. We'll definitely use Silvia in the future and highly recommend her services. Thank you, Silvia!
This was my first time with DogVacay and Silvia. My dogs are my babies, they get better treatments than any human being. I do not trust them with any stranger, but Silvia made me feel very conformable. her communication before, while and after boarding is amazing. Her house is very dog friendly, backyard is great for gods, she has all toys and crates available. Her house is hardwood floor so you know it is clean. While my dogs were staying with her, she sent updates, pictures and in constant communication which brought a big smile to my face and made the trip easier while I was away from my babies. I would recommend her services and will trust her with my babies.
Not the best for the amount of money that she's charging.
My yellow lab, Chloe, had her first dogvacay stay with Silvia over the long Easter weekend. Silvia's house is very dog friendly with a great backyard and 2 friendly resident dogs. Silvia took such good care of my dog, with daily walks and visits to the park. She sent me several pictures which assured me my Chloe girl was doing fine and having a vacation of her own.
I would absolutely recommend Silvia (& will) to care for your dog(s).
Thank you Silvia!
- Tracey and Chloe
My puppies must have had a wonderful time at Silivia's, because I'm not sure they are glad to be home. She sent pictures and the puppies looked happy and relaxed. Silivia did a great job and we will use her again.
Both our dogs had a great time! We had a great vacation and I know our dogs did also. Sylvia took great care of our dogs, and were very accommodating to our open vacation schedule. The daily picture updates were awesome and there is no doubt they will be back again!
great no problems randam seemed to like it there said she would keep him again i will use her again
Our dog, Inca, is like our child and for the first time we felt very comfortable leaving her while we go on vacation. Silvia has a wonderful family and home and treated Inca like she was part of her family! Silvia was very respectful and did a great job with our long list of commands (we are very peculiar about that). We received lots of pictures and updates throughout the stay. Inca got plenty of playtime and exercise, too. I would not hesitate to recommend Silvia as a pet sitter for anyone. Thank you, Silvia!
Silvia starts off with a serious meet & greet. She has a detailed notebook that includes her background information, all about her family and her dog sitting business. Then, she slowly and easily introduced my dog to her home, her dog and it feels very natural and comfortable. Within minutes, Wrigley is relaxed and exploring her backyard. She takes her business of caring for my precious pet very seriously and I really liked that. But, she was also flexible with us when we wanted to pick up Wrigley to play at Huntington Dog Beach for an afternoon (which is very convenient to the location of her home). I would recommend Silvia to anyone! I will use her services again. We got to enjoy a week...some with our dog and some time without....which was a perfect vacation in our minds!
I am very impressed with DogVacay and so pleased with how Silvia accepted my dog as one of her own. She updated me through out the day and sent a video! Loved it! Made my day.
Dano, our 9 year old Golden Retriever boy had a wonderful doggy vacay with Silvia and her family. Not only is Silvia an awesome dog person, her whole family welcomed Dano. We received photos of the family membrs giving Dano belly rubs and hugs. He had walks, play and lots of attention. The family dog, Coco, is also a lovely hostess and she and Dano hung out together. Dano is an extremely social guy and it was clear to us in the pictures and in the descriptions and annecdotes regularly sent by Silvia that he was enjoying himself and was never lonely. If Dano could talk I know he'd be telling me that he should go back to Silvia's house the next time that his family has to travel. I would definitely recommend What's Up Dog as the finest of doggie retreats. We'll be back!
My wife and I decided to head to go on a last minute trip, and we were in need of a good dog boarder. I emailed Silvia and she got back to me within 15 minutes. We set up a meet and greet for later that day, and it went very well. Silvia absolutely loves dogs, and it was very apparent the minute you show up at her house. My two male dogs immediately felt very comfortable with her.
While the boys were being boarded, Silvia provided several pictures eachday from the dog walks as well as the boys lounging around. When I picked them up, you could tell they played a lot, and that they had a wonderful time. I highly recommend Silvia, and I will continue to use her in the future!
Silvia was an amazing hostess!! Two days before I was leaving town my dog sitter had to back out I had no idea What I was going to do. I contacted Silvia and she set up a meet and greet Right away. I have a sharpei bulldog mix which is a tough breed and a bit sketchy around unknown people however Silvia was very patient and within a very short period of time They got along great !!! She kept in close contact with me and sent photos and i felt very at ease while out of town. I would like to thank Silvia for A plus service and I highly recomend her.
