About Kelsey

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I offer a great get-away for your furry family so that you can enjoy your get-away without a worry! I've been in the pet sitting business for five years now and haven't met a dog I didn't love. I do work full time however, I do come home at lunch and am looking to hire someone to take dogs out during the day.

I am willing to watch small or medium dogs at my house but if you have a large dog and are located in Deer Park, I can come to your house. I require a list of all shots and vaccinations before the reservation is completed and dogs must be on flea and worm prevention. Dogs must have collars with ID tags. I would also like a list of previous medical conditions.

I also have a short form for you to fill out so I can know where to get a hold of you and all your pups favorite things!

Please bring food, bed, medications, collars, favorite toys, and favorite treats with you at drop off. I do not feed dogs anything that isn't provided or approved by the parents to avoid tummy troubles.

If your dog normally sleeps with you, let me know and your dog can sleep with me. However, I still ask that you bring the dogs bed as it can often be a place of comfort for the dog in a new environment.

I have an 9 year old beagle mix named peanut who loves having friends over! She is an outdoor dog so if for some reason, your dog doesn't like her, I can easily keep them separated.

Scruffles is the newest addition to our family. She's a small wire haired terrier and about 2 years old. She's still a little timid at first, especially around humans, but loves playing with other dogs once she is used to them (usually takes her about two hours).

We have a pool if your dog likes to swim. And if they don't, don't worry! All dogs will be closely monitored when they are playing outside!

I am also willing to watch Reptiles, Guiana Pigs, and hamsters. I however cannot watch cats and will not watch rats as I have an unreasonable phobia of rats.

we are very pleased to have Kelsey watch our dog Mia, we would not choose to leave our Mia with anyone else, Kelsey is so good with her, Mia just loves her and so do we, we couldn't be any happier with Kelsey! Monika Pierce
We love Kelsey T. She is so good with Skipper. I believe this is her calling and she is so dedicated to taking care of all of her dogs. We will definitely use Kelsey again.
Kelsey is a sweetheart! I totally trust my babies with her. I won't hesitate to use her services again when I need someone to look after my dogs. Thank you, Kelsey!
Kelsey is truly loves what she does; it is completely obvious. Because of her, we travel so much more!
Willie thinks Kelsey is his second Mother. He loves going to her house and when we leave to go to her house he goes crazy. He knows where he is going and can't wait to get there.
Kelsey is awesome and Cici and I could not be more happy!!!
Kelsey is wonderful with my CiCi. Cici loves going to Kelsey's house.
Awesome!!
Kelsey was very flexible and working with use to pick up Fox at a convenient time. Fox was calm & seemed to enjoy being with Kelsey. Normally when we pick up Fox from the boarder she is crazy, running around and wanting to be held. This was not the case when we got her from Kelsey. I love that Fox was able to socialize with other dogs & be in a home. Throughout her stay, Kelsey sent lots of pictures, which was comforting to see Fox having fun.

Kelsey is amazing!! My puppy Cici absolutely loves to go and play at Kelsey's!!
Kelsey is so sweet and friendly. My dog Cici had the best time playing at Kelsey's. She didn't want to leave when I came to get her!! I am so happy I found a wonderful place for my puppy to go to. Thanks Kelsey.
Tiger had another wonderful time with Kelsey. Thank you Kelsey for going above and beyond.
Wow! Kelsey did an amazing job with my precious pups! I was very worried leaving our older dog while we were away for the weekend because he has a lot of health and anxiety issues, but he had a BLAST! She was so patient with him and really catered to what he needed. She was very good about sending updates, pictures, AND videos of the dogs. She did an amazing job watching over them and making them feel loved while we were away. They both had the best time at her house and the long naps the day we got them back showed it. I really loved that she kept their daily and nightly routines as close to their normal as possible. When we picked them up they were both in such happy moods that it was clear they enjoyed themselves and felt comfortable around her. She even allowed us to pick them up late in the evening which was great! This is by far the greatest service I have ever used and it is all thanks to Kelsey. I am overflowing with happiness and gratitude at the service Kelsey provided. I will be using her again and again!

This was our dog's first stay with Kelsey and we couldn't be more pleased. Skipper had so much fun with the other doggies that were staying with Kelsey that he slept all day after we picked him up. You can tell how much Kelsey really loves dogs. We already have him booked to stay again later this month. Thanks for taking such great care of our baby Kelsey!

Gracie once again appeared to have a good time at her overnight stay with Kelsey. Having another small dog to play with is a plus for her.
Kelsey was very welcoming and friendly. Our little dog went to her right away with no barking (very unusual) so we knew that she felt comfortable. When we picked her up - she was sleeping and seemed to have been very happy!
This was my first time using Docvacay and I am thrilled to have found a very suitable dog sitter for my Penny Lane! Kelsey is a very sweet, and responsible dog sitter, and I will definitely use her again. Penny Lane sure made herself at home, and Kelsey was very accommodating to her..Penny enjoyed the company of the resident dogs, and seemed to blend in with the family. It really helped ease my concerns when Kelsey updated me with responding to my inquisitive texts and she also sent me some pics.. that was a big bonus.. I don't like leaving my pet behind, but Kelsey sure made it a lot easier. I highly recommend Kelsey and wish her much success with her business!

Kelsey is great. Willie loved staying with her and playing with the other puppy. He got lots of love and attention. He will be staying again in September.
Kelsey took great care of my four legged baby. I received daily texts and pictures. Couldn't ask for a better dog sitter!
Kelsey was so so sincere and accommodating and did a great job hosting Gracie for a week. This was the first time I'd left her with anyone other than my family, but meeting Kelsey and seeing the good care she gives all her dogs put me at ease and allowed me to enjoy my trip without worries. Kelsey sent me updates and pictures that helped even more to assure me that Gracie was in good hands and doing well. And when I went to pick up Gracie at the end of her stay she was healthy and happy and settled in to her surroundings there.

Big thanks to Kelsey for taking such good care of Gracie and allowing me to travel without having to worry about how she was doing.

I highly recommend Kelsey to anyone who's wanting their dog to be given lots of attention and be well cared for while they're away.

Kelsey took wonderful care of my dogs. I highly recommend her.
Kelsey was a great host for my pups! She was very responsive to my messages and kept me updated with pictures too.This was my first time using Dogvacay and I would highly recommend Kelsey as a host. Thanks for everything!
Kelsey takes such good care of my dogs. One of my dogs is very shy and skittish. She won't go to anyone except my children or me. When company comes over, she hides out in her kennel. When she's with Kelsey and the other dogs Kelsey cares for, my dog transforms into a playful, outgoing dog! I know my dogs feel safe and are happy when they're with Kelsey. I HIGHLY recommend Kelsey to care for your dogs.

Kelsey was wonderful!! My babies had a great time! She took good care of them and sent pictures everyday. They told me they enjoyed playing the backyard and playing with Peanut. We will definitely choose Kelsey again for our next vacation.
Kelsey is great!! Abbie looked like she had a good time. I especially love the updates and the pics/videos that Kelsey sends to ease your mind that your pet is having a good time and being well taken care of.
Kelsey worked wonders with Marley! She was so patient with Marley and sent us updates and photos for our peace of mind. Guess who is now on our speed dial? We can board our girl with complete peace of mind.
I appreciated all the attention Kelsey gave Aries. She took pictures of him and that made leaving him behind easier. Kelsey did a great job with my pet. She appeared caring and knowledgeable about dogs. I will use Kelsey again if enjoyed it as well.
Kelsey was awesome! She stayed in touch, sent pictures and loved on Ali as one of her own. Couldn't have asked for a better care giver for our pup while we gone.
My girls loved being with Kelsey. The next morning, Sophie was ready to go back.
The biggest thing I noticed is that Snoopy was obviously happy staying with Kelsey whereas previously he is anxious to leave the border. I think this was because he received excellent care and attention during the stay. I would not hesitate to use Kelsey again ant I recommend her highly. Thanks for everything including the daily communication and updates on our pet. Tim and Anne

couldn't of found a better person to have taken care of our dog, very pleased with kelesey! we will be using her again and have also refurred her to our friends!
Kelsey is a Godsend! We were very nervous about finding a sitter for Jack, and I commend Kelsey for all her hard work and accountability.

She was very responsive, communicative, sweet and responsible. I can't thank her enough for booking us so quickly and being so reasonably priced. You won't find a better sitter anywhere else.

My dog Abbie was very happy when I picked her up. I think she had a fun time playing with the other dog that was there. Kelsey is very warm and friendly and she really cares for your dog well. She sent pics and updates while I was away, which was very nice. I know Abbie had fun, cause she was tired and sleep well the night I picked her up.

Kelsey always takes very good care of Molly. When I leave on a trip, although I miss her, Kelsey sends me updates and pictures everyday so I can tell she is in good hands! I told my sister-in-law about her and she used Kelsey this past weekend also.

I am so pleased with Tiger's stay with Kelsey. He had a wonderful time and when I returned it was like I'd never been gone. Kelsey was such a joy to work with and I hope that when I leave again, she will be available to watch Tiger.
Kelsey was amazing! She responded straight away when I needed somewhere for Nebula to stay over Christmas. We received photo updates everyday which was great and really put us at ease!
Nebula had a great week with Kelsey and the other pups staying there!
Thanks so much!

Kelsey did a great job making friends with our dog. Since he is a large breed we asked her to take care of him at our home. She was very trustworthy. She also did a meet and greet the night before.
This was my first time leaving my fur babies with someone I didn't know. Kelsey made me feel comfortable from the start. She texted me and sent pics of my Magic and Cowboy to me as well. They seemed to enjoy theirselves.
Kelsey is super flexible, which is definitely needed with my dog. Lola had a great time and came home exhausted from how much she played!
Kelsey is a wonderful dog sitter she was able to accommodate my three girls and take good care of them I will use her in the future and recommend her.
Just returned from Deacon's second stay with Kelsey and we are again pleased with the overall care and consideration that Kelsey has given. We will be back!
Wow, what an awesome experience! Kelsey was a true professional! This was my first go with having someone watch and care for a pet or animal… and I must say, Kelsey really put me at ease with this new experience. I was kept up to date on my dogs stay via texts and text pictures; this really kept my worries during my travels to a minimum. Thank you so Much Kelsey… Deacon and I will be seeing you in the very near future.

Kelsey is a warm and loving caregiver. My maltipoo, Buddy has an anxious personality but was happy and comfortable in Kelsey's home. Kennels are very stressful for him. When a friend recommended Kelsey, we immediately contacted her when Buddy needed boarding. Kelsey would txt pics which were very comforting and he was freshly bathed when we picked him up. We will certainly call on Kelsey again.

Kelsey was absolutely wonderful with Molly she really took to her she took her to the dog park spent lots of time with her and Sent me many pictures to keep me posted while I was away from her. She was really and I certainly appreciate her Molly fell right into loving her and missed her when she left! I will certainly be using her in the future and highly recommend her to anyone else

She is very caring and a great dog sitter . I would let her sit my dog again. I also would recommend her to anyone. Thanks Kelsey .
My babies love Kelsey which makes it so much easier to go places. They aren't the most social bunch so I'm worried that boarding will cause anxiety. With Kelsey they can be at home and cuddle up to her. She sends me updates and photos which are greatly appreciated.

I definitely recommend Kelsey to take care of your pets. It was nice knowing that when we out of town, our pets were well taken care of. The text messages and photos were a great way for us to keep in touch. It was nice knowing that our two dogs had a yard to play in and met a new friend, Peanut.
