About Chelsea

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Give your dog a great play-cation! My husband and I and our two dogs, Dude and Gonzo, would love your dog to come play with us!

Our home has lots of room for your pet. We also have a very large backyard for your pet to roam around.

Your pet's stay includes two walks per day, administering any medication needed, and lots of love and affection! I am a frequent worrier and I know how it feels to be away from by BFFs (aka my dogs), so we will send you photo updates. We love taking photos of our pets, so expect lots of photos from us!

We love to take our dogs to various places around Austin! Whether it's Red Bud Isle, Barton Springs, Lady Bird Lake running trail, or Shoal Creek, we love being active with our dogs.

Let us know if you have any questions! We would love to hang out with your pup!

P.S. We are also cat lovers. If you are looking for someone to come check on your cat while you are away, we would love to visit your cat. Cats are also welcome at our house, if you think you cat can handle our dogs. :)

Willis had another great stay with Chelsea! He has the best time and Chelsea is great about sending pictures and videos. We will definitely keep leaving Willis with Chelsea as long as she will have him :)
I would thoroughly recommend Chelsea to look after your dog. She updated me regularly with how my dog was doing which was very reassuring. She has a lovely clean home and 2 very friendly dogs of her own. I will definitely be using her again.
Thank you Chelsea from me and Sherlock
Chelsea was a fantastic host. This was our first time leaving our sweety with someone else, and I couldn't have been happier with the result. We had some serious delays getting home to pick her up on the last day, and she was very understanding and even delayed her holiday plans due to our being later than expected at pickup. An easy recommendation if you're looking for someone you can really feel safe leaving your pup with.
Chelsea was great! We already have another weekend booked with her. Easy drop off and pick up. I'm pretty sure Willis would have liked to stay longer with his new pack instead of coming home with me!
Great dog sitters! Super convenient location and extremely communicative. Will book again! Thanks Chelsea
Chelsea made this boarding such an easy and reassuring experience! She was very easy going, and even sent little videos of my dog playing with hers in her backyard while we were away. Great communication and my dog came home calm and clearly well cared for. Thanks!!!
Chelsea kept us updated throughout our trip with photos and videos of Lucy! Lucy loved playing with Chelsea's dogs and really seemed to make herself at home. We will definitely use Chelsea's services again!
Chelsea rocks! The puppers loved her time and I know will be visiting Chelsea again very soon. Thanks for the great experience.
Oliver loves Chelsea!
Chelsea was Great!! She was so generous and kind, even though my dog, unfortunately, peed on her couch :/ She has a beautiful house and a HUGE backyard, and her dogs, Gonzo and Dude, were such good friends with my dog Maya. Maya is a rambunctious puppy who needs plenty of exercise and running during the day, and so I'm so glad I found Chelsea as a host w/ big backyard where Maya could run around and have fun. Thanks Chelsea!
Chelsea took great care of my puppy. My puppy is a 'shy eater' around other dogs and in new places. Chelsea was very accommodating by finding her a quiet place away from others to attempt to eat. My pup enjoyed playing with Chelsea's dogs in her huge backyard!
When I picked Diego up from Chelsea's, he was calm and seemed pooped which is great since he is a very high-energy pup! He played almost nonstop with her dog Gonzo, and they got along great! I would say my experience with Chelsea was good, but would've liked her to check in more. I seemed to have to ask how things were going most of the time rather than her texting me, which only happened just a few times over a 10 day stay. I was hoping to get daily pictures or texts just reassuring me that things were great. If you don't care about regular check-ins, I would say Chelsea is a great option! But, if you want someone to check in daily this may not be a good fit for you. That said, she did take him a couple places which I really liked, and other people commented that she was great at checking in so maybe this was a fluke? Either way, good luck finding a sitter!
Chelsea was great! Sam came back very tired from playing outside with her dogs.
Chelsea was amazing! She has a great spacious place (with an enclosed backyard) and two super friendly dogs. She was very responsive and sent us pictures regularly. We would definitely recommend her to anyone:
Bear had a wonderful time boarding for 4 nights! We will be back!
Chelsea B. watched our dog for 2 weeks while we were out of the country. We were very nervous about leaving our dog for so long, but Chelsea did an awesome job of not only taking care of our dog, but making sure he got as much love and attention as he would at home. She also was great about sending us pics and updates throughout the trip. I'd recommend her to anyone!
Chelsea and her husband are great! They were incredibly flexible and communication was a breeze. Looking forward to using them again!
We had a great experience with Kyle (Chelsea was away for the weekend). They have 2 great resident dogs and they had one additional dog staying. All communication was answered quickly. They were flexible on drop off and pick up and everything went really smoothly. They have a really large backyard and pet friendly house. I would definitely recommend them to friends and will take the dogs there again if we are staying in the Austin area.
Chelsea did an awesome job dog sitting for us while we were away! We are thankful we found her to come by everyday to feed and hangout with our big baby. We know he enjoyed the company but this way he was still able to stay at home in an environment he was familiar with.
I had not left Otis with anyone before or used Dogvacay, so I was a bit nervous. (I did not like the idea of putting him in a kennel) so this option was the best for us, and it worked out perfectly. Chelsea was awesome and sent lots of pictures. Our dogs got along great and she gave Otis a warm, loving home to stay in while we were gone. Lots of play time in the yard and walks:) Would use again for sure.
My beagle had an awesome time with Dude and Gonzo! Chelsea took such good care of him, that I'd definitely recommend her if you're a crazy dog-mom like me and need a responsible sitter!
Chelsea was a great sitter for our dog, Captain! She and her pups welcomed Captain, and I know he had fun playing entire time he was there. She has a wonderful big yard for the dogs to play in! She was responsive, very easy to get a hold of, and flexible with pickup and drop-off times.
Chelsea and her dogs were awesome! My dog is so tired from playing so much! She sent me photos everyday and she made sure to keep me posted about what they were doing. She was easy to get a hold of and responded very fast! I would definitely book again!
Chelsea did a wonderful job taking care of my dog, Dagny. She sent daily pics and I knew Dagny had a wonderful stay when she did not want to leave their home. Hopefully Dagny will be able to stay with her again!
Chelsea (and Kyle) were ideal babysitters for our beloved dog, Gracie. The environment was safe and fun with plenty of room for dogs to play in the house and backyard. Chelsea kept us posted with pics and comments while we were away, and we felt confident that Gracie was in good hands. We will use Chelsea again in a heart beat.
My shy dog returned from a stay with Chelsea's family tired, happy, and clean! Not only did Chelsea's two dogs welcome Abigail and keep her entertained, but she also warmed up to the humans--which never happens.
