"While the owner is away- the dogs will play!"

I am a stay-at-home mom and freelance writer with my own pup crew. I have a large backyard and pet friendly (non smoking) home.

I am home most of the time however, I do leave for short periods of time to run errands every so often.

Our home is fun and laid back with plenty of time for play and personal attention.

I'd ruff to meet your furry friend!

This is the second time my pup stayed with Chelsey. She did a great job and took great care of my girl. Thanks Chelsey!
Chelsey took great care of my big girl, Paisley. I've already booked my second stay with Chelsey!
Chelsey always takes great care of our dog when we go out of town. Plenty of photo updates and playtime with other dogs as well.
Great as always, including a little road trip for our dog!
Another wonderful visit with Chelsey!
Our dogs love coming to stay with Chelsey, and I feel better knowing they are being cared for by such a wonderful family! We will definitely be using Chelsey in the future.
Ranger enjoyed his stay again and even scored two tennis balls (his new favorite)!
Chelsey always takes great care of our dog. She sends lots of updates and pictures that make it obvious, that all dogs are really "part of the family"!
Chelsie was wonderful, we used her last minute while we were in town to take our kids to the Wings Over Houston Airshow. She sent pictures of our pup playing and roaming around after we dropped her off to let us know she was having fun and getting along with her own pets. We look forward to using Chelsie again when we move back to Houston.
Great people. Felt very comfortable from start to finish. When you drop of your dog you look for clues like is the place well kept, whats the personality of the people like, are they secretive, etc. etc. I mean after all your dog cant talk, right? But some people make you feel comfortable from the start and this was the case here. Very satisfied. Would recommend to others. They will be my first choice for Apollo.
Chelsey is WONDERFUL with my 90lbs lab, Chester! She's my go-to person when I have to travel for work, or when Chester has earned a puppy play date for good behavior. I recently had a medical emergency, and Chelsey was able to watch my best friend for a week. I can't recommend her highly enough!
We were so scared to leave our 1 year old Boxer baby with anyone other than family, but this time we had no choice. We considered boarding him with our vet, but he would be in a kennel too much for our liking. We chose to meet Chelsey and her family (people and pets included) because she had such great reviews, but more so because she has had a lot of experience with Boxers in particular. Anyone who has had the great pleasure of spending any length of time with a Boxer pup knows how energetic they naturally can be.. but also how loving and connected to people they are. They need to be with humans to feel happy. Chelsey greeted our Bear with hugs and kisses and was very sweet when he jumped on her (he's only 1, and gets very excited still). They allow their pets on the furniture for cuddling and naps, which was comforting. They also have a big back yard for play and a park close by for extra fun and walks. She was sure to send us lots of pictures and videos daily which eased how much we missed him. I would highly recommend Chelsey to anyone in need of a fur-babysitter! We would be happy to use her again in the future :)
Chelsey (& her family!) are the best, they take care of Rocky as if he were there own!
Chelsey was kind and accomodating in setting up my new dog's first overnight stay. She came home happy. I appreciate Chelsey's care, and hope to use her services again soon! Thank you, Chelsey and Willie and Willie V! Becky
Chelsey is such an awesome person. The family invited us into their home and made us feel more than comfortable. Miah stayed for two nights while on vacation. I got lots of pictures and even got to see a video of a new friend she had made. When I came to pick her up she was still having a blast, but more than excited to see me. I will definitely book with Chelsey for future vacations!
We will be back!!
So grateful for your care of my Sasha!!
I can't say enough about how awesome Chelsey is, after my first dog vacay sitter was relocated to Guam i didn't know what to do. I looked and found Chelsey! She loved on our Tucker and embraceed his crazy habits about chasing bugs and birds. She and her little family are such a blessing, and Tucker loves going to visit. And this mama is very comfortable leaving him in such amazing care. Can't thank you enough for what you do, we are so blessed by you!
Tuckers mama ,

Wonderful family! They took great care of Indy and were so easy to communicate with during his vacay. Thank you for taking such amazing care of him!!
This was our dog Rocky's 2nd stay with Chelsea & her family! He loves it there! He's always so happy when we get pictures of his adventures while we are away! Thanks Chelsey! We will be booking again in the future!
Chelsey and family provide a true 'part of the family' experience for my 70 lb. American Bulldog, who came home happy and serene from the playtime with other dogs and the human fun-loving care they shared! He was tuckered out in the best way, and I was ecstatic that Chelsey was so quickly responsive to my reservation inquiry. She also handled working around an injury he was dealing with prior to his stay, and deftly gauged the length and type of play he could handle At this time. Stellar care at Bark Boarding with Chelsey & family!! We'll be back!
Chelsey and her family were great with our Ruby girl, 74 lb. Labradoodle. She seemed to have so much fun, it took her a few days of recovery from so much play time. She is booked already to again, I know she can't wait.
Chelsey took GREAT care of my yellow lab for 3 days when I was out of town for a convention. I picked him up on Saturday and he was exhausted from playing with the other dogs - he can't wait to go back!
When we arrive at Chelsey's house, Joey knows where he is. He wags his tail and is happy to see her. He has so much fun playing with her other doggy clients.
Chelsey is always very attentive to Joey. They make him feel a part of the family
I had to go out of town for my grandpa's funeral. Chelsey met my pups a few days before, and watched them Friday-Sunday evening. I knew they would be well cared for; Chelsey is very sweet, and it was apparent she loves animals.
Ranger had a great extended stay with Chelsey and her family over Christmas. She kept us up to date and took photos and videos to help us with the separation from our pup. Ranger got along great with Chelsey's pets and other guests.
As hard as it is to leave our four legged children, I know they are in good hands. Chelsey is the best! They were showered with belly rubs and lots of kisses and she even sent updates with cute pictures while we were gone.
Joey was back for a second visit and had a great time. He was happy to see Chelsey which made me feel good.
Chelsey was great! Our dogs had fun and were well cared for. It was so much easier to relax on vacation knowing she was caring for our pups.
Bandit had a great time! More play in the future for sure!
Chelsea and family were great with my boyz, again! They were happy and exhausted when heading home. Thanks guys!
Was great!
Joey had a great time with Chelsey and Willie! Chelsey takes great care of her four legged guests and is on top of every detail that they need. We warned Chelsey that we had spoiled Joey just a wee bit, but she gave him lots of attention too! He also had fun playing with two other of Chelsey's pet vacay guests. Joey will most definitely return.
Zack stayed with Chelsey and her family again. They are wonderful. Her little boy cried when we picked up Zack. I guess he loves him as much as we do. Thanks Chelsey for all you do.
Doug and I would like to thank you for everything you do for us and Zack. Chelsey makes sure our baby is always doing good. If anything doesn't seem right she always lets us know. We appreciate that. Knowing we don't have to worry makes our trip so much better. This morning I was remembering how uneasy I was the first time Zack stayed w/ Chelsey, I bugged her a lot about how he was doing. Thought about him all the time. Our last trip was for 5 days, I never checked on him once. LOL I new he was ok or she would have told me. Thanks for understanding the late pick up last night. :) See you in 2 weeks.
Max loved visiting Chelsey! He played hide and seek and took naps in the afternoon. He also loved his snuggle time! We appreciate the care and attention that she gave our Golden Retriever and would want him to stay with her again.
Chelsey and Willie were great to our pups while we were away on a 7 day vacation. We have 2 weimaraners, so we are fairly picky about who gets to keep this quirky pair. We held a meet & greet before our departure to make sure their pups, our pups, and their toddler all got along. In that time, we were able to see them interact with our pups and we felt comfortable they would all get along. Drop off and pick up were easy and flexible. We received updates without feeling like our vacation was being intruded on, and we even received any concerns Chelsey had during the week. Both pups came home tired and happy. We were very pleased with communication and the atmosphere at their house. We would definitely recommend them and use them again!
Chelsey took my last-minute reservation when my other sitter cancelled--Odie had a great time again!
Odie had a great time with Chelsey and her family--lots of love and playtime!
Chelsey was super fantastic with my dog Ender. She was also super accommodating with my travel plans. Overall I couldn't ask for a better experience!
Chelsea and her family are great with my two pups. She was flexible and they had a great time! My only complaint would be that they weren't very happy to come home and leave the fun of Willy and the other dogs behind. Awesome stay! They've also done daycare for my two wildchilds and understand unique dog behavior quite well. Thanks!
This was the first time we used Chelsey and were EXTREMELY impressed. She sent us updates and pictures which we really appreciated. We will definitely use her services again!!! LOVE HER!!!!
Chelsey was great. Our babies had a good time and she took very good care of them. She sent pics to us and kept us up to date on how they were doing.
Chelsey is great with Zack. I get pictures which I so appreciate. I will be bringing Zack back again for sure. Thanks Chelsey for all you do. We no longer worry about him when we are gone. It's nice just to enjoy our vacation. For some reason I can't click on the stars. But Chelsey get 6 stars for sure.
I always look forward to Abby going on vacation with Chelsey & Will! They take care of her like she is their own and she is very comfortable there. She runs right to the front door! Whether it's one night like this visit or a few nights when mommy has a trip to trip to make I know Abby is in good hands!
Chelsey was great! She was extremely accommodating on very short notice when she agreed to watch our 5 month old weimaraner. I don't know what I would have doe without her. Rosie had a great time with Chelsey taking care of her. I would highly recommend Chelsey to anyone.
This is the fourth time we have left our boxer with chelsey! That should say a lot. I no longer feel guilty about leaving our dog. She has a great time and now so do I. Great experience!
Chelsey is amazing! My pups love visiting!
We love Chelsey! Our dogs get so excited when it's time to visit and Chelsey is so accommodating. Highly recommended!
Chelsey took wonderful care of my dogs. Sugar, was quickly integrated into the family and I received several awesome photos of sugar with her new sunglasses on, they were super cute! Shadow, being more timid, was allowed to snuggle up on the couch and be a couch potato, his favorite activity.
What can I say, I feel totally comfortable leaving my boxer girl with Chelsey and her family. The only negative thing I could say is that my dog enjoys them so much I think she was a little sad to come home. I am very pleased I found DogVacay, but more pleased that I found Chelsey.

Chelsey and her family were fantastic. They were flexible with pick up and drop off times which is a great thing when planning a trip. She took pictures to let us know Coco had settled in well. She put our mind at ease and we were able to enjoy our vacation even more knowing Coco was in good hands. I would recommend her to anyone and will be using her again:)...Thanks for a great first time experience.
One word...FANTASTIC!!! Chelsey and family were so welcoming to my pack of 4!! We will definitely call her again on our next trip!!
Thanks Chelsey for all you do for Zack. Your the best.
Chelsey and her family are wonderful. I will be bringing my baby there again for sure!
This was our second time leaving our lab w/ Chelsey. Zack is like our baby. Chelsey took great care of him. We were gone for 9 days. She sent me Christmas pictures so we didn't miss him so much.

We are already going to be booking Chelsey again in February.
This was our first extended stay. We are very happy to have found dog vacay, especially Chelsey. Receiving daily updates including pictures was a big comfort. When we picked up Bo he seemed very happy to be there. We will definitely book with Chelsey again.
We have used dog vacay a couple of times now and we have been very impressed with the folks we have met through Dog Vacay and who taken our pooch into their homes.
Chelsey is a big reason we feel the way we do about dog vacay. It is very obvious that she is dog lover and that our canine would be in good hands. On very little notice, she accepted our request and when she opened her front door my dog let herself in and made herself at home.

Chelsey made sure to keep us updated throughout the duration of our trip on our doggie's activities and what they were up to.

We will be calling Chelsey next time we travel!
DogVacay is new to us. We wanted to do a trial run before leaving Bo for an extended period of time. Bo's sleepover with Chelsey could not have gone better. Drop off was easy. Later that day I received a text and picture of Bo looking very comfortable. First thing this morning I had another update with photo. We will definitely be using Chelsey again and would highly recommend her.
Chelsea took wonder paw care of my babies while I was on my cruise! She had pics available for me to see and I know they had a great time!! It makes such a difference being able to fully relax when I know my babies are in good hands!! I'll be back again! Chelsea is now my only dog sitter !! Thank you!!
Chelsey was my first Dog Vacay hosting experience and I was very impressed. My dogs are older and she gave them the extra attention they needed. She posted pics so I could see them! I'm so pleased I have already made arrangements for my babies' 2nd vacay! Thank you Pooch Party!
Chelsey and Willie are great hosts and friendly people. Yard for dog to play in and they are very kind.
