About Kelsey

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there, I'm Kelsey!
Paul and I have both had dogs throughout our lives but don't currently have any at home with us - so we would love to watch yours for you!

We live in a condo (1200sqft) in King West area; we don't have any private outdoor space, but there are several dog-friendly parks within a few blocks. We both work Mon-Fri, but with slightly offset schedules so your furball won't be left alone for a full typical work day. Our weekends are generally pretty flexible and we make sure to spend plenty of quality time with our guest pups; whether it be long walks through the neighbourhood, runs at the dog park or lazy nights at home with movies and cuddles.

Please request a Meet-and-Greet so we can see if we're a good fit for your pup. We look forward to meeting you and your furry family member!

I almost don't want to write a review because I want to keep Kelsey and Paul all to myself! They were awesome. Lots of updates daily while I was away for eight days from my pup, Duke. I never had to think twice about if Duke was okay - it was so evident they are dog lovers and took the BEST care of him!! I would highly recommend them to anyone. Very trustworthy, great communication, extremely friendly and a real love of dogs!
Amazing! Kelsey and Paul took such good care of Dylan! He felt right at home. They sent pictures and updates several times a day and Dylan seemed very happy there. He's going back in February! I would definitely recommend Kelsey & Paul.
Kelsey kept us up to date daily during Buttons stay together with photos. Will definitely use Kelsey again.
Poppy's stay with Kelsey was excellent ...I really appreciated her patience with him and the constant updates and photos. I would highly recommend her and Paul to anyone who is looking for a great place for their doggies to stay!
Kelsey is amazing , always smiling and personable ! Koci came back as a happy dog! It was my first time using dog vacay and I'm very satisfied with the system. It really makes travel easy for us, lots of options in the neighbourhood , simple and clean interface . I am so glad I stumble upon Kelsey's profile , she has a lot of good reviews and her picture advertise exactly what it is. What I love is that Kelsey and Paul take in one dog at a time and they really love dogs, so your dog have full attention when you are away . During the stay, she responded right away to whatever way of communication you chooses. Kelsey took care of koci for 5d4n and always update us with pics and status. Super sweet!;)
Kelsey and Paul are excellent dog-sitters. They took care of my shepherd Hank for eight nights while my husband and I traveled to the states. Kelsey's daily text updates assured me that Hank--a dog who is used to a lot of exercise and a lot of attention--was happy, healthy, and relaxed. I'm sure he's already looking forward to his next visit!
Kelsey and Paul were great with our dog, Malachi. We felt very comfortable with them immediately. They took the time to ask questions to understand our pups' quirks and made the entire experience excellent. We'll definitely keep them in mind for future dogvacay needs.
As usual our little buddy , Jake had a great time with his temporary pet parents. Kelsey & Paul are wonderful with him.
I recommend in their spare time they start a photography business, as the quantity & quality of pics we get of Jake while he's on "vacay" are amazing ... and make us a little bit jealous that are lives aren't nearly as exciting as his.
What a fantastic experience we had with Kelsey! We were a bit anxious as we had never used this kind of service before but these guys are awesome! From the moment we booked, they connected with us and sent a detailed list of questions to make sure all the needs of our Westie well communicated. Kelsey and Paul were very accomodating about the time of drop-off and pick-up.

We received regular pictures throughout the stay of how things were going and everything went incredibly smoothly!

Our dog (Vanilla Bean) got taken for a really nice long walk and play in the park and had all of her medicines administered exactly as we had requested before bed-time.

I would recommend Kelsey and Paul to all our friends and family and would definately use them again!
Kelsey and Paul were phenomenal. Benny felt right at home almost immediately and had a great weekend with them. Kelsey was sure to send me lots of amazing photos of Benny enjoying his stay. Kelsey and Paul bring a great understanding of each dog's needs, kindness, compassion and attentiveness that is second to none! Benny will be back!
Kelsey and Paul are friendly, thoughtful, and fun capital-D Dog People. They instilled me with confidence at every step of our interaction, from our first contact on the site to picking Lando up after his stay with them. They spent loads of time with him, gave him great exercise and play, and texted pictures every day. I cannot imagine more excellent dogsitters. Thanks so much Kelsey and Paul!
Kelsey and Paul were kind, patient, and really took the time to get to know my dog and her personality.
The updates and photos made me feel completely confident that our Frenchie was happy and in excellent hands. When we got back, it was apparent that our dog had made a strong connection with Kelsey and Paul and we are definitely going to be counting on them from now on! Elle the Frenchie misses them already!
We are so, so, so thankful to have found Kelsey and Paul! From the time of our meet'n'greet in May to our actual first booking with them- they have been nothing but warm and welcoming with us and Ripley. It's hard to leave your dog- especially a rescue for the first time ever, and especially with some known separation anxiety. Their experience, communication skills and easy going nature really made the process smooth and comfortable for everybody. They took her to a dog festival, the dog park and multiple walks. We got beautiful picture updates throughout her stay and even a link to more pictures on their Flickr account when we got back!

Thank you for putting up with our little rascally escape artist guys, you're the best!
I can't say enough about Kelsey and Paul. My husband and I went on holiday and were a little nervous (to say the least) about leaving Benji with someone. After a meet-n-greet with Kelsey and Paul, we knew right away we'd found the right people to look after him!
When I dropped Benji off, I realized I'd forgotten his wet food, but Kelsey happily offered to go buy some and I just paid her back when we returned. She also read all my instructions without complaint! I would highly recommend Kelsey and Paul to anyone with furbabies!
I cannot say enough good things about Kelsey & Paul! We were going out of town for a wedding and they were extremely accommodating with our drop off and pick up schedule. We received numerous updates about Henry and his activities throughout the day and beautiful pictures of a smiling and happy little pup! Their apartment is spacious and clean, and even though we brought our own toys, they had a little doggie bed and toys of their own for Henry too! He was in puppy paradise for sure. We will definitely be using their services again :)
My girl had a wonderful stay at Kelsey and Paul's. They offered more than just an ordinary daycare/sitter service; it was definitely more like a vacay/getaway for my dog! They were courteous during meet-and-greet, apartment is nice and clean, toys, bed, water/food bowl, parks, daily photo updates, cuddle time, follow instructions well (re: feeding & special needs), very accommodating, and clear/transparent communication ...etc., you name it, they've got it! I felt at ease knowing my girl is well taken care of. Highly recommend for other pet owners.
Kelsey and Paul were great! Flexible with pick up and drop off and provided updates regularly. Harvey had a great time!
Great location downtown. Calm atmosphere for the dog.
Kelsey was a great host. Super accommodating regarding our schedule and our dog was warmly welcomed the moment we entered the apartment.
I received several text/photo updates and knew our dog was in good hands.
I would not hesitate to recommend Kelsey.
Kelsey and Paul were kind enough to watch Harlow a second time. I received updates and pictures several times each day and it was obvious my pup was spoiled rotten. With a comfy bed, toys, lots of snuggles and an off-leash run, I don't think she wanted to come home! We are so glad to have found such a trustworthy and kind couple to watch our dog while we are away. The peace of mind is priceless.
Jack had the most wonderful stay with Kelsey. I honestly cannot say enough. Kelsey took Jack on a couple runs and to the dog park. She also sent me updates and pictures during his stay. I will definitely be booking with Kelsey again. Thanks so much :)
It's never easy leaving your pup while you go on vacation, but Kelsey and Paul made it incredibly easy for me. They were kind, easy-going and accommodating and welcomed my dog Harlow into their home as if she was their own. They even let her sleep in bed with them! Harlow is 65 pounds and doesn't always get along with other dogs so she can be a bit of a handful but Kelsey and Paul handled her like a pro. Kelsey sent me photos and updates several times every day so I never had to wonder how my dog was doing. I would absolutely recommend Kelsey and Paul to anyone looking for a trustworthy dog sitter. I know Harlow is already looking forward to staying with them again!
