Sylvia Edwards, Owner.

Sylvia has always loved animals, and has shared her life with both dogs and cats, often at the same time. In addition, she has fostered many retired greyhounds, providing them with the skills necessary to start a new life as a member of a family. Sylvia was born in England, and grew up in the country not only with dogs and cats at home, but also plenty of farm animals nearby. She has decided, rather than adopting another dog, to open her home to dogs in need of a temporary "home away from home". Sylvia can be reached via email here.


Pam Pegley, a good friend and close neighbor has joined Sylvia in providing walking and additional boarding. Pam loves dogs. She is a retired teacher from Bath, England and has lived in Oakmont for 14 years. Pam has owned several dogs and a horse, and now enjoys the company of her calm and very dog-friendly mature 30 lb Labradoodle, Bentley. For seven years Pam and Bentley volunteered as a team, bringing comfort and love to patients in care facilities. In Pam’s home there is a dog bed in every room, and the large secure back yard is a haven of fun and peace.


Both Sylvia and Pam are covered by liability insurance to protect you and your dog(s). A requirement of the insurance company, is that all bookings must be channeled through Sylvia as the owner of Sonoma Dog Boarding.
