About Chelsea

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my name is Chelsea. I have a 2 year old French Mastiff named Zen who LOVES other dogs. Zen is the best of both worlds.. not only will she play all day with the active pups, but she can also sleep all day with the lazy ones. I am a dog lover! Not only will your dog be getting lots of attention from Zen, but from me as well. We have a good sized fenced in backyard for the pups to play, have a park across the street for walks, and are only a few blocks away from Stapleton's Off-Leash Dog Park. I groom and work from home so someone is always with the pups. I do work at a shop a couple days a week, but my roommates will be home. I fix my schedule around my dog sitting. I am a professional dog groomer with 4 yrs experience. Come back from your vacation to a tired, happy, clean well groomed dog! :)

Chelsea was flexible and accommodating with a last minute booking. Having Jilly groomed when I picked her up was such a treat! Will definitely use Chelsea again.
Merlin came back happy and tired as always!
I tried out Chelsea as a first time sitter for my dog. I was nervous because he has a history of "escaping" when we go on vacation. Chelsea was amazing! He loved her and her room mates, and got along with the other dogs. She was very accommodating, as we had to book another night due to a snow storm. It was not a problem. We were also pretty late getting home because of bad road conditions. Once again, no problem. :) We will be leaving our pup with her on the next trip.
Our big boy gets super excited when we arrive each time. Chelsea is great with dogs - she has that magic and he is exhausted for 2 days when he returns home to us. He gets to play with his friends and be a part of the pack when he goes on vacation. We get great pictures and will continue to book with her each time!
Chelsea probably should get 5 stars but we give her 4 partially because of us and our dog.
Without question she's a dedicated dog lover. Our lab is 10 months old and ansy. Chelsea accepted her without hesitation.
She lost weight but again, not necessarily attributed to Chelsea.
We were concern she lives on a busy street. No evidence it is an issue.
Finally, because of her enthusiasm we would likely use her again. A person who loves dogs trumps most other concerns.
If we could give her 4 1/2 stars we would be comfortable with that rating.
Chelsea was great. Our dog Winnie came home happy and healthy and looked like she was having a wonderful time while we were away.
Chelsea did an awesome job with my 10 month old Newfoundland puppies. They are a handful & she was awesome. They were happy when I picked them up.
Chelsea is the best! Our Kindred is so excited when I tell him he is going to see Zen. From the time we arrive until we pick him up, he is uber excited. He loves playing with the other dogs, and he is well taken care of each time he vacations there. When he comes home, it takes him 1 1/2 - 2 days to recover from full days of play! Chelsea is dependable, sends regular picture updates, and is a true lover of my pet and all the ones she sits for. Will always use her for our big boy!
Chelsea was amazing! She makes everything fluid and easy breezy. Chelsea is approachable, loving with the pets, and kept us up to date with photos and check-ins.
I thought I had rated Chelsea this summer! (Sorry!) Chelsea was great! Our dog Dimi stayed with her for the first time this summer for a whole week! She watches dogs All. The. Time. Her mastiff Zen is a sweetheart and very easy going. Dimi had a lot of pups to hang out with while he was there, and he came home happy and tired. Thanks Chelsea!
Very flexible and great to work with - sent photos each night and the pup came home exhausted so I knew he got plenty of play time. Would absolutely use again
Chelsea was great with our dog - loved the pics of him while we were gone. He came home happy and tired! :) Thanks!!!
Chelsea is by far the only person I would trust my dog with as she does her due diligence and has worked with me on several occasions in ways that have made this app the easiest possible way for me to have my dog not only taken care of but I almost feel as if he goes to like a playhouse where he has friends and her dog Zeus is just such a sweetheart and great friend for my dog Jerry. Jerry is gsp and is a crazy dog and I love that but not everyone else does. Chelsea updates me with pictures and has made everything just so easy and has kept me updated every day with a picture of Jerry tired out which is hard to do. Thank
You chelsea
Chelsea was great and Rosie came home very happy.
Phyllis was happy and worn out after her stay with Chelsea! Chelsea even gave Phyllis a bath when we asked last minute without any issue. It was a great experience!
Chelsea was very easy to schedule with for pickup and drop off. Her dog is a doll and got along well with mine. She sent me pictures each day. I would definitely use her again
Chelsea was wonderful, everything was so easy and I knew that my dog, an older Golden Retriever, was in good hands. He stayed for a week and I could tell when I picked him up that he had been very happy, which is not always the case at doggie daycare that we've used in the past. I received photos of him enjoying himself every day when we which was great. I'm looking forward to boarding him again with Chelsea in the future!
Chelsea was very accommodating :-) And then there's Zen, what a face & s!weet disposition! Thanks Chelsea
Chelsea was great! Her dog is no much better behaved than ours
Chelsea was incredibly friendly and seemed to do great with our pup. We went with Chelsea based on all of her great reviews and they were spot-on. Lots of photo updates and it seemed like our pup got all the attention and socialization we would have given him if we were home! 5 stars!
Chelsea was great! Dimi was with Chelsea for a week. It was the first time with her. He was happy and tired when I picked him up. Yay!
Our dog seemed happy and well cared for. Will be using Chelsea's services again
Great as always!
Chelsea took amazing care of my Bodie! I was a bit nervous as we have just moved from Utah and only one person has taken care of him since he was a baby, but Chelsea really put me at ease.

Bodie came home exhausted and happy. I have had him stay with her several times and he is super excited once he sees where we are. I definitely recommend Chelsea and we will use her again.
Excellent. Dogs were happy. Very pleasant to do business with. Will use again.
Great as always! Thanks, Chelsea.
Chelsea did a great job with Monty (black lab)! Monty was happy and tired when we picked him up. Chelsea was even kind enough to watch him an extra 2 hours than planned due to flight delays. THANKS CHELSEA!
Chelsea did a great job with Buddy. He was at home there and happy. When we have boarded Buddy before, he rarely ate. After one day at Chelsea's he was eating like normal. Zen was a great companion as well. We would definitely ask Chelsea to keep Buddy again.
Chelsea was great, loves dogs and I know Rocco had a fun time and made some new friends.
Chelsea was great with our dog. She had tons of experience with all types of dogs, so she has probably seen just about everything a dog could possibly do. Even though our guy had a few issues because he is pretty new to our house from the shelter, she was extremely patient with him and kept us informed about everything. We would definitely use her again.
Chelsea, thank you for watching our dog. I think he had good time. We will definitely book again soon.
Joey loved spending time with Chelsea and Zen and came back to us exhausted and happy!
Our dogs came home happy and tired... the best way to ease back into reality from time away! Chelsea and Zen were lovely hosts :)
My dogs always come home tired after a weekend with Zen.
My bulldog had such a great time staying with Chelsea and Zen- she was smiling from ear to ear when I picked her up. With a fenced in backyard, an awesome dog for her to play with (Zen) and Chelsea's experience with grooming and caring for dogs of all sizes I knew my pal was in good hands. Absolutely recommended!!!
Gretel is happy and exhausted from all her playtime! Chelsea took great care of her!
Lady loved hanging out at Chelsea's home with Zen and some other doggies. Chelsea sent a daily picture and she groomed Lady to perfection. Highly recommend - we will be booking her again!
Chelsea made leaving the dogs behind easy. Thanks for caring for them!
Merlin had a wonderful stay with Chelsea. We really appreciated how Chelsea was able to accommodate a last minute request to take care of Merlin. She kept us updated with pictures. Merlin came home tired and happy!
Chelsea was excellent! We've left our dogs in her care a few times now and they have been very well taken care of. She was really good at keeping us up to date with pictures. The pups are always quick to make themselves at home and I can tell that they love it there!
We felt that our dog was well taken care of. We appreciated the photo updates.
This was Axel's 2nd visit to Chelsea he loved every minute it. She sent me pictures of her dog, Zen and my pup cuddling, it was adorable. He loves it there. I love working with them, as they are very accommodating to schedules. The fact that she's a groomer is an added plus, since I have a golden doodle who needs grooming regularly.
We like them so much that I booked another vacay with her before I had even picked Axel up from this visit!
I wish I could leave Chelsea six stars. We were headed out for a long weekend and our friend, who was going to watch our pup, had to cancel due to their dog needing emergency surgery. I reached out to Chelsea last minute and she responded almost immediately. Chelsea communicated very well, sent pictures, and had everything ready to go at pick up. We will be using Chelsea every chance we get!
Chelsea was awesome! My dog Brinkley seemed to have had a wonderful time and was so sad when he got home because he missed his friends :) needless to say, we will definitely go back to see Chelsea!
Great as always - thanks!!
My dogs had such a great time with Chelsea and Zen! Thanks so much for taking such great care of them. They were happy and tired after a long day of playing, and it takes a lot to wear out my little one! Looking forward to next time!
My dog Kaleo absolutely loved staying with Chelsea! Kaleo stayed with her over a week and she sent me daily pictures and put my mind at ease that my fur baby was having a great time. When I picked him up, he abruptly snuggled up to me and fell asleep. Thank you Chelsea for taking such good care of Kaleo! Until next time :)
Very friendly and accommodating! Chelsea was great at making my shy dog right at home. We'll definitely be back!
I'd never used DogVacay before, and was unsure how booking would actually work. Chelsea was super helpful and took our Gizmo last minute. He had a great time!
Great all around!
Chelsea and Aaron are awesome! Axel seemed so happy to see me but almost reluctant to leave when I picked him up. That's a good sign! He was having some tummy troubles right before I dropped him off but they were kind enough to still take him. We couldn't be happier with our choice of boarder!
Chelsea was awesome! Our pup had a blast playing with Zen and running around the backyard. He may have enjoyed his vacation more than we did! Would definitely use her again!
I am sorry that I am writing this review almost 2 months late. Our experience was amazing! It was our first time using DogVacay as our usual sitter was unavailable. We were a little nervous leaving them, but was quickly put at ease when Chelsea sent us photos of our pups with great big smiles. Chelsea sent us photos and updates throughout the pups entire stay. She even groomed them for an additional fee. I call them first every time we need a dog sitter!
Chelsea was paw-sitively awesome! She accommodated my drop-off and pick-up times. She's super friendly. My Annie took to her immediately. She sent regular photo updates, and Annie had a blast playing with her dog and the other dogs she watched. Annie is now sleeping soundly on my lap, a sure sign that she had an amazing time! Thank you, Chelsea! You made it easy for us to trust in you!
Thanks again to Chelsea, Aaron and Zen! Sasha had a great 5-day stay and came home happy and healthy!
Chelsea and Aaron did a great job watching our dog for the week that we where gone. We came home to a very clean, happy and tired doggy.
Chelsea was so great with our pup, Breck, all weekend and sent lots of updates with pictures of her. Breck was tuckered out from all the fun she had with their dog Zen--she had a great time! Would definitely recommend her!
Chelsea, her boyfriend Aaron, and their sweet dog Zen took great care of our Westie, Scooter, during our week vacation. Chelsea has both work and personal experience with dogs, and both she and Aaron were very caring and considerate. I liked that they work opposite schedules, so at least one person is at home with the dogs at all times. Chelsea sent pictures and a note every couple of days to keep me informed with how Scooter was doing. She was quick to respond to all messages and texts. Contrary to his experience going to kennels (apprehensive going in and coming home exhausted), Scooter was eager to go to Chelsea's, and came home energized and happy. Chelsea even accommodated our request to brush Scooter's teeth nightly, and bathed him before we picked him up so he was nice and clean. I will definitely have Scooter stay with Chelsea next time we go away.
Thanks again!
Thanks again! Another great stay for Sasha.
Wow, Chelsea and Aaron went above and beyond what I would expect from any host. I think they took better care of our dog than we are able to at home. They gave him lots of love, treats, and even sent photos.

Our pup felt at home with them and their playful dog, Zen. I don't think that he wanted to leave when I picked him up. He was happy, healthy, and recently bathed when we took him home. I'm definitely booking with them in the future.
Many thanks to Chelsea & Aaron for keeping our dog, Ben over Christmas time. Ben had a great time playing with their dog, Zen and the other boarding dogs. He was a good boy and was well taken care of. He received treats and play time. Thanks again for your hospitality and maybe we can have Ben meet Zen again for another time.
Happy New Year!
Chelsea and Aaron took great care of my dog while I was away. They were very accommodating to my scheduling needs and sent frequent photo updates. It's great to have a reliable dog sitter and will definitely be booking with them again!
Chelsea was great with my two dogs. This was my first dog vacay use, and she helped me overcome any worries. She offered to have the dogs come over before their stay to familiarize them with her home. My reticent dog really warmed up to Chelsea and Aaron. My naughty dog can be a challenge, and they were easy going and tolerant. Their dog Zen is the consummate vacay host dog. The dogs had a safe, loving place to stay and I had a worry-free time away. I would book with them again with no hesitation.
Great experience again! Accomodated a late pick-up. Can't thank you enough!
3rd stay for Sasha with Chelsea, Aaron, and Zen. Went great again, and Chelsea did a great job grooming Sasha. Will always be my first call when we need care for Sasha. Thanks again!
Our second time to use Chelsea, and she's great. Takes good care of Sasha, and we love getting the photo updates showing Sasha having fun with Zen or just relaxing. Chelsea also accomodated a delayed flight and kept Sasha for an extra night. Thanks, Chelsea!
Thanks to Chelsea for taking great care of Sasha while we were away. Also a great job grooming her. Came home to a happy, healthy, clean pup -couldn't be happier with Chelsea and will use again!
