About Kelsey

Growing up, my home was always filled with pets. Dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, birds - you name it. Caring for all of these animals was an integral part of my life.

I also had the privilege of being the human companion for Peanut, my yorkie-dachshund pup, for almost 14 years before she passed away last year.

I dearly miss having a four-legged friend in my home and would welcome the chance to dote on your pet. Since I work from home, I'll be able to do that all day long.

While in my care your animal would get lots of walks, snuggles and scratches behind their ears. I'll even take them for a run, it that's their thing. I also live near several parks, including two great dog parks.

Should you prefer someone to check-in on and love on your pet in your own home while you're away, I'm happy to do that, too.

I'm available to do morning, after work and evening walks/feedings and will spend time quality time with your pet so they aren't sitting at home alone.

Next time you're gone for the night, the weekend, or longer, please think of me. I promise to love on your pet like they were my own.

She was great! We loved getting updated pictures while we were gone.
Bruce had a great time with Kelsey!
Bruce came home happy and tired after his stay with Kelsey.
Kelsy is Awesome and the Best! Our dog loves Kelsy...
This was our first time using DogVacay and Kelsey made it incredibly easy. Our dog Harper was very excited to spend the weekend with Kelsey, she bolted up to Kelsey's apartment the minute we arrived. Kelsey was easy to communicate with and and sent along some photos of Harper during her stay. Kelsey was super easy to schedule with, we've already booked future stays with Kelsey and would highly recommend her to other puppy parents.
Kelsey is a great host. Indigo always has such a great time with Kelsey. I never have to worry about Indigo when I go out of town and leave her with Kelsey, because I know she will be well taken care of. Thanks.
Kelsey was so helpful and accomodating! She sent lots of useful updates, helped me bring my dogs things into her apartment (HUGE help), and was very responsive (and of course very nice)! I will definitely keep her in mind for my dog's next vacay!
We would highly recommend Kelsey! She has watched our dogs on two occasions and it has been stress free. She even sends daily pictures of the dogs, and is very responsive to our texts/e-mails.
Kelsey came over and kept an eye on our active kitty, Cassius, while we were away. It was great to get pics of him playing and knowing someone was giving him pets and treats!
Kelsey is great!! She was willing to come over and meet my Yorkie, Moxie, and fully discuss Moxie's likes and dislikes while Mox sniffed her out. Given my work and travel schedule, she was also flexible is coming to pick up Mox and bring her to her place.

During the vacay, Kelsey remained responsive and sent a ton of photos. I never really had to wonder how Mox was doing. I could tell that Kelsey was already picking up on quirks and would report back. Kelsey may not be my usual sitter, but I would highly recommend her and would not hesitate to use her again. Mox and I thank you, Kelsey!!
Kelsey is marvelous. Just marvelous. From calmly handling a fairly last-minute booking and drop off, to making our dog, Hoover, feel welcome immediately, to texting outstanding photos and being flexible about pick up, Kelsey was an absolute delight. Knowing Hoover was with Kelsey made going away easy and stress-free. She's amazing!
Kelsey was fantastic! She sent us update pictures and kept us up to date with everything that was going on during the day. Our pups were able to stay in our own home since Kelsey was able to come to our home to watch them. What a difference that made! They were less stressed and more comfortable - it really made us feel at ease while we were on vacation. When we got back everyone was safe and sound. I would highly recommend Kelsey to anyone who wants a great dog sitter!
Kelsey was nothing but amazing! She sent me daily photos and texts! I will be using her in the future! Thanks so much Kelsey!
Sadie, my dog, had an excellent, short stay with Kelsey. Kelsey was extremely flexible in dealing with my schedule and was happy to stop by and meet Sadie before I left town. She gave me updates while I was gone, and Sadie seemed to be enjoying all the TLC she was getting from Kelsey. I highly recommend Kelsey!
We love Kelsey! We have been boarding our little 7-lb dog for many years now, but we needed to find someone to watch her for us while we traveling for an entire month. It was important to us that our dog could stay somewhere comfortable and receive a lot of attention. Kelsey was SO easy-going, and accommodating, especially considering our request was for such an incredibly long period of time. She made us feel so comfortable about leaving our pup with her for so long, and addressed a lot of the concerns we how our dog might handle it. She was extremely easy to communicate with, always responsive and very flexible. She kept us updated with photos and updates even during the parts of our trip when we didn't have cell service and connectivity! Gemma seemed right at home with her - which put our minds at ease and allowed us to really enjoy our time away. We will absolutely call Kelsey the next time we need someone to care for our little one!! We can't thank her enough!
Kelsey was great! I would highly recommend her. We are already booking her for a future pet sitting. She also sent pics and updates via text throughout the weekend :)
Kelsey is awesome! She is so good with Weebay and he loves going to stay with her!!! We will definitely use her again. Thanks Kelsey!
Kelsey was awesome! She was so sweet to Weebay and sent pictures and made me feel better about leaving my little guy. I will definitely use her again!
Great, and prompt communication. An absolute pleasure and relief to work with. Thank you for everything, Kelsey!
Kelsey is a wonderful host! She always responded promptly to my messages and texts. She sent me daily photos of my dog at her house. She is a very nice girl, and I hope that my dog can stay with her again!!!
Kelsey was a fantasic dog sitter for my dog Indigo. She went me tons of pictures of Indigo while I was away, so that I could see that she was having a great time. Kelsey was very flexible with pick-up and drop-off times as well, which was very helpful. My dog Indigo had a great time, and when I pick her up and brought her home, she was so exhausted from all of the fun that she had while with Kelsey. Thanks!!!
Kelsey did an excellent job. Very warm and personable and she loved Betty and Betty loved her!
Kelsey was really great! I loved that she sent pictures/updates on how Amos and Abby were doing. They seemed like they had a great time. She was also really accomodating when I had to drop them off early in the morning. Also, I just noticed she refilled my poop bag dispenser because it must have run out, certainly not expected but appreciated! I highly recommend Kelsey!
Kelsey was great! She sent us a bunch of pics of Sweet Dee which showed that our little one was having a great time! It was clear that Sweet Dee was comfortable with Kelsey from the beginning. We will definitely have Kelsey dogsit Sweet Dee again.
Kelsey was nothing but spectacular. She met me at the dog park to meet Scotch and get to know her habits and then we walked back to her place together. Her dog Peanut was sweet and friendly with my dog and they had a blast playing together. Kelsey took Scotch on walks and to the dog park daily- where I often got pictures of her "making new friends." Our flight was delayed getting home and she was kind enough to drop her off at our house across town and coordinate with our neighbors so that Scotch was waiting at home when we arrived. We will certainly use DogVacay again and hopefully we'll be able to book with Kelsey! Anyone would be lucky to have such a caring host for their dog.
I had my dog stayed with Kelsey for a weekend. Kelsey was great and my dog had a fantastic time! She was flexible and sent updates throughout the day. My dog returned tired and happy!
Kelsey took great care of our mini poodle. He liked her and her dog a lot. She is very accommodating and easy to work with. She even sent us unsolicited photos of our poodle during the visit!
