Sylvia was absolutely fantastic. This was our first time ever using Rover and despite a few nerves at first, Sylvia made the process and experience extremely easy and comfortable. She took wonderful care of our baby Sofia, sent us regularly pictures, and even gave us some much needed advice/help on how to train her. We would recommend Sylvia to anyone and will be reaching out to her again for other stays with our pup ...

Sylvia came highly recommended from a friend I met at the weho dog park! Contacted her that day, met the next day at my place and her and my doggie Frenchy were instant friends! Needless to say I hired her and she worked with my other house / doggie sitter on a smooth transition from my place to hers for the final week of my vacation. I will highly recommend her and Rover! All the best ...

When Sylvia watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We take a minimum of 3 walks per day. I also do a 90 min pack hike 3-5 days per week. Depending on your dog's ability they may join or come along in the doggy Bjorn.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Wherever he/she is most comfortable. There are doggy beds all over the house they can snuggle up in and there's always of course our bed! If your pet is more comfortable in his/her crate be sure to bring it for their stay.

Time I'll spend with your dog:
My Fiancé & I do both work as independent contractors allowing us a pretty flexible schedule. We always accommodate our schedules, when we have boarded pups, to minimize alone time for the dogs to no more than 5 hour increments and are sure they get a minimum of 3 walks per day. I also love pack adventures! Whether it's a weekday hike to the Hollywood sign or a caravan to the dog park on the weekends. I take Fun very seriously. We can also work on some training, doggy puzzles and hard core snuggling for those less active guests.
