Sylvia was great and our kitties were well taken care of while we were out of town. I felt very comfortable knowing Sylvia was checking in on them and giving them some love - she is super reliable and sweet! Thank you, Sylvia :-)

I cannot overstate how much I recommend Sylvia to take care of your dog(s). Sylvia has experience with all kinds of pets and dogs - from big to small, blind, deaf, or disabled. She is a true animal lover that will take care of your dog with all the love and dignity they deserve. You will be very happy with your dog or pet in Sylvia's care.

Sylvia is my #1 pick - across the board.

Trustworthy. Kind. Avid creature lover. Great accent.

When Sylvia first met my dogs, she immediately connected with them on a creature-creature level. My little woofs, as she calls them, are crazy about her. Sylvia's presence in their lives has made leaving home each day easier because I know my dogs are in the best care. She always sends great photos with updates to boot!

When my half-husky ...

Large fenced yard + Prospect Park

Hello! I'm Sylvia. I love dogs and cats!

I love taking dogs for long or short walks through nearby Prospect Park or Park Slope streets, stopping to play fetch if they want to. I can also take your dog for a run around the 5.3km Prospect Park loop if you would like them to burn off some extra energy.

Dogs that stay overnight with me will be walked depending on what their activity needs ...

What Sylvia would like to know about your dog

I like to know my dogs name, age, favorite treats, breed if known, and any medical or behavioral issues of relevance (eg protectiveness, squirrel chasing, not good with kids etc)

When Sylvia watches your pet

I like to take dogs for walks through the Park Slope neighborhood and to Prospect Park. In Prospect Park I like to take dogs to socialize with others woofs (if their temperament allows), as well as play fetch, or even for a run with me!
