Silvia's great! We have used her twice and Norman does well under her care.

We were very nervous at first but there was nothing that could have gone better or Sylvia could have done better! She is just fabulous: knowledgeable, confident, tidy, flexible, accommodating, active, personable and many more positive attributes.

Our furry son was sad to see her go when her visit was done.

Unreservedly we would recommend her to others and will definitely look to her again in the future.

This is a review for dog-walking.

This is the first time Floyd has been taken for a walk by any one unaccompanied by one of us. Silvia is fabulous, her demeanor is relaxed and confident and Floyd did not seem to notice that it wasn't one of us joining him on his venture out, which is the ideal outcome really.

We are happy and lucky to have found her.

When Silvia watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live in a nice, quite neighborhood in inner SE. I will walk your dog around here and also around Colonel Summers Park as I mentioned above. We take our dog Katy on daily outings, I am happy to bring your dog as long as he/she is friendly with other dogs and okay riding in cars.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
In a dog bed, either in the bedroom or living room which connects to the bedroom. If you have a dog bed for your pup, I appreciate if you can bring it. We normally have 1-2 extra but sometimes they get chewed up by visitors :)

Time I'll spend with your dog
I recently quit my daytime job, I mostly work from home so I am planning on spending lots of time with your pup. I am very active and when the weather allows, I take 3-8 walks a day. I live a couple of blocks from Colonel Summers Park, if your dog enjoys spending time at parks I am more than happy take him or her there. We have lots of fun with the dogs that are staying and you never have to worry about your dog being left at our home all day. However, if your dog barks/ chews or has separation anxiety I am are not able to care for your dog. I also like to mention that I am very active, I go to the gym daily, I have meetings here and there and I am sometimes away for a couple hours- I'd like to make sure your dog is alright being by him/herself for a little while.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I recently quit my daytime job, I mostly work from home so I am planning on spending lots of time with your pup! I am very active and take at least 3-5 walks a day- some days a lot more. If you live near a park/ hiking areas I am more than happy to take your dog. I'm very active and love spending time outdoors. I do go to the gym daily and I have meetings here and there so I'd like to find a dog that is okay being by himself for a couple of hours without getting too stressed out!

Extra house-sitting services
Absolutely, not a problem!
