About Kelsey

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*Please note: starting January 2017, I will be raising my prices to $30 per night. If you have two pups staying with me, it will be $55 rather than $60. For my daycare, I will raise it to $25 per day. If you are interested in booking with me for the new year, please send me a message and I will send you a custom quote. Thanks!

Hi everyone! My name is Kelsey Mattia, and I am a recent graduate from Cedarville University. I have a lot of experience raising and watching dogs, so I figured the perfect way to make extra cash is to provide pet care for those in need of it. I am extremely comfortable with dogs because I've had a beagle since I was 6. I trained and raised her, with minimal help from my parents. I have also babysat neighbor's and other family members' dogs. I am a huge dog-lover and there are not many dogs I meet who don't like me!

My home is perfect for your dog because there is a lot of yard space, and a huge neighborhood they will be able to take walks through. Since I, or one of my parents, will be home throughout the entire day, your dog will not be locked in their cage or in a room. I will be able to play with him/her and give him/her a lot of attention. At night, your dog will be sleeping in my laundry room either in their cage or on their bed. Whichever you prefer and your pup is more comfortable with!

I am more than willing to provide references from those whom I've watched - so please ask! Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you and your dog.

This was Freckles first stay with Kelsey and all went well. He was nervous when he first arrived at her house, but it did not take him long to settle and feel comfortable with Kelsey and her dog, Jackie. Kelsey is a friendly host and it is obvious she enjoys caring for dogs in her home. I would not hesitate to make a reservation with Kelsey the next time Freckles needs a place to stay.

Kelsey was a pleasure to work with. She was responsive to our day care request and our 3 year old golden retriever Moose seemed so relaxed and happy when we picked him up. She even sent us pics during the day! Highly recommend!!!
Kelsey was easy to work with as we figured out how to arrange the drop off and pick up. She sent pictures and updates throughout the time to let me know how my Lola was doing. I particularly liked that she limits the number of dogs there. I know that the calm atmosphere was helpful to my old dog doing well for a two week stay. I will absolutely use her again when the need arises.

Wonderful experience. Lots of photo updates, will definitely book with Kelsey again! Highly recommend!
Kelsey was a fantastic host and we cannot wait to use her services again! Lovely home and family!! Thank you!!!!
Kelsey and her family were wonderful with both of our dogs. Communication was great and we received updates with pictures of our dogs every other day. I would highly recommend Kelsey to anyone looking for a wonderful sitter for their pet.
Kelsey along with her family were a blast to work with. She was very patient with me and answered any questions I asked. She kept me in the loop and I was updated each day how my pup was doing. Even though he was excited to see us, I could tell he really wanted to stay. He had a great time and they treated him like there own. They exceeded my expectations and I will be in touch with her again.

Having completed a trip for almost 12-days, this was my first time in having Kelsey care for our pet. She was extremely friendly, attentive, conscientious, sent daily photo updates and cared for Brody as if he were hers. She was a pleasure to work with and without a doubt I'm sure we will use her again in the future. You will be extremely pleased with the care provided for your pet and will not be disappointed.

Kelsey was wonderful: responsive and reassuring to this worried pet parent. My elderly little man was relaxed and happy during his stay, and upon returning home.
Kelsey did a great job with Charlie. She was at ease with a pup that was new to her and kept me updated on his experiences through texts and pictures during his stay. Charlie enjoyed playing with the family beagle and a visiting Pomeranian. I would definitely use Kelsey for my future dog watching needs. She and her family were friendly and welcoming to me and to Charlie.

Kelsey & her family took great care of our pup! We could tell he got extra belly rubs and plenty of walks. He came home content and relaxed.
Kelsey was awesome, taking care of our 2 mini doxie's, Penny and Pepper, for 8 days. Pepper has some medical needs, and Kelsey was great in her care. It was so nice to know that our girls were on a vacation of their own, including lots of walks, playtime, and love, while we were away. We received pics each day to let us know what the girls were up to :)
They will be excited to come back for another DogVacay with Kelsey and her family soon!

Kelsey was a wonderful host. She responded quickly to all my questions and was extremely flexible with everything. Her house was clean and comfortable with a lovely yard in the back.. A perfect place for scarlet.

Kelsey also provided plenty of pictures throughout our dog's two week stay. It was obvious that our dog Scarlet had a wonderful stay . She was exhausted when we picked her up and she was surprisingly still very clean! We would love to have Kelsey watch Scarlet again and would recommend her to everyone! We were lucky she was available! Thank you Kelsey!!

Kesley was fantastic! She took great care of our golden retriever. I would definitely send him to her house again!
Our pup's Dog Vacay with Kelsey was indeed "pawsome!" Rylie had a massive back yard to play in and went on walks and even runs with Kelsey. I received pictures while we were away. I'm sure Rylie had a blast with all the attention Kelsey gave her. We will definitely be using Kelsey for subsequent vacations!!!

We were so happy with Kelsey and how she took such good care of Henry while we were away. She was attentive and took pictures of him everyday to forward to us during our vacation! It was good to know he was well taken care of while we were so far away. He had his own vacation with Kelsey!
