About Kelsey

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have just moved to the Uptown area! Our apartment is spacious with lots of waggle room :). Dahlia is our miniature dachshund who loves company and enjoys playing with other dogs. We enjoy spending time with the dogs we watch, playing in the house or going on frequent walks to the park throughout the day. We look forward to taking great care of your pup!

Kelsey and Andrew took such good care of our dog while we were away for a week. They sent frequent updates with pictures. Their pup, Dahlia, is very friendly, and our dog got along extremely well with her. We highly recommend them and would definitely rebook with them.
Kelsey and Andrew are absolute rock stars!! We were immediately impressed by their warmth, hospitality, and attention to detail.

During our trip we received frequent updates and we could always tell our dog was happy and comfortable!

Knowing Kelsey and Andrew were looking after our doggie made our trip that much more relaxing and enjoyable. Will definitely reach out to them again for our next trip!
They were great with our pup and took great pictures of her. Their dog is adorable and got along well with ours. 5 stars, will use again.
Kelsey and her boyfriend Andrew were AMAZING! Words cannot describe how awesome, friendly and accommodating they were. We met with them weeks in advance to make sure our dog would be comfortable with them. We have an abuse rescue animal who is very nervous around new people and were very hesitant to leave him, but right from the start he took a liking to Kelsey and Andrew. We were sent pictures of our dog the whole time we were gone, and our dog seemed very happy and energetic when we picked him up, and slept like a rock once we got home! He clearly got lots of fun playtime with them, and also got along great with their dog Dahlia. We plan to use them again and again. Best DogVacay couple Ever!
Kelsey was an excellent host and took excellent care of my pup! The update pictures showed Niko in her natural state - relaxed and ease as if she was at home. I will definitely recommend and use Kelsey again!
Great experience again with Kelsey and Andrew - Max had a great long weekend with them and came home happy and healthy and relaxed!
Poe seemed super happy in the pics Kelsey sent, and was happy to have a friend in Dahlia! Will def use again!
I booked a one night boarding stay for Jack with Kelsey when my original sitter was unavailable for this last minute request. Although we did not have an opportunity to have a meet and greet before hand, Kelsey was very prompt in replying, accepting the request, etc. Once I dropped off Jack, I got a picture of him and I knew he was in good hands. I definitely plan to keep Kelsey on my short list of approved dog sitters.
Super awesome!
Dax had such a great vacation with Kelsey! He came home happy and healthy, all that we could have asked for. Will definitely return for future vacations!
We love leaving Elvis with Kelsey and Andrew because we know he really enjoys his stay. They take really good care of him and he and Dahlia are already big friends!
Elvis loves them and they love him: perfect hosts!!
Kelsey and Andrew are wonderful! Sadie loves staying with them.
Kelsey was super responsive and able to watch my dog even though I reached out to her last minute. The drop-off/pick-up was very fluid as it was really easy to communicate with her via text. I didn't receive any pictures as some of the reviewers did, but she did let me know my dog did great and was super playful. I noticed she also lives right next to a park, which is probably great for dog walking.
Easy communication, flexible drop off and pick up, and most importantly: Sadie came home happy!
Kelsey D was a great host - super responsive, flexible, and took excellent care of Max! I had a DogVacay cancellation and turned to Kelsey with a last-minute request, she and Andrew and Dahlia welcomed Max with no issue. Pictures were great, Max was happy and healthy when I picked him up - they're on my go-to list now!
Kelsey was great! She sent photos of my pup daily along with little notes. Looking forward to having Sadie stay with Kelsey again!
Kelsey was awesome! She accepted my dog Maude with very little notice for a 10 day trip. I was sent pictures and updates daily. Maude was very happy during her stay and she really enjoyed Dahlia, Kelsey's dachshund. I would highly recommend her and use her in the future!!
Leo had a fabulous time with Kelsey! We received the cutest photo updates every day :) He was a happy and tired pup when we picked him up after his 6 days of doggy vacay! Thanks so much Kelsey!!!
I was very pleased with Kelsey. And hoping that Journey over anxious/hyper wouldn't scare them.l have 3 more out of town trips before end of year. So l would truly like Kelsey to keep my yorkie again. Also sending pictures was so delightful . Again thank you.
My first meet l was very impressed with Journey taking to the Host !!
Journey is a very active He loves attention from people and bossy with other dogs. I believe l made a good choice to use dog vacay and my choice of Kelsey. A definitely 5 pawsome
My dogs had such a great time with Kelsey. She sent lots of pictures of them while we were gone and they always had such a happy look on their faces. She took great care of them.
Kelsey and Andrew are awesome. Elvis has stayed with them many times and loves it!
We've had our dog Jaime at Kelsey's several times and she is awesome! She was so kind to take our last minute reservation, has a flexible schedule and always sends us cute pictures! Jaime loves hanging out with his little buddy Dahlia too!
Puddles had the best time with Kelsey! I normally get worried leaving my little guy with anyone but he took to her right away. She was great about his special diet and needs. Would definitely recommend her to friends.
Excellent host! Kelsey was very communicative and sending some pictures of my little Codie and the beautiful Dahlia sharing her bed,
Once more Kelsey was amazing with Pepper! She was so sweet and even sent as a card! I was always kept informed with pics and texts !
Kelsey was great! She sent us alot of great pictures and was very good with updates. Randal and their dog became besties and I will be using Kelsey again.
Kelsey was super communicative, and my dog MJ was happy, but tired to be home! Got lots of pic updates, and was flexible with pick up times!
Upon booking for a second time I realized I hadn't reviewed before... Oopsy. Anywho, she saved the day when my sitter cancelled over NYE. They had never met my dog or me, but she was so laid back which made me more comfortable. She sent so many pics, which meant a lot. Our dogs were inseparable :) but the best part was when I picked up my dog. I could tell she actually cared about her weekend guest just by how she said bye to him.
Kelsey is great, always send the cutest pictures and Pepper is always happy when he gets there!
Perfect hosts! Elvis really enjoyed staying with them and meeting their doggie Dahlia (he misses her now!). They treated him great and kept us updated with beautiful and funny pictures of him as part of the family.
Belle was so tired when she got home from playing with Kelsey and her pup. I loved the photo updates.
