I have had dogs in my family for over 20 years. I know how hard it can be to find responsible, respectful, and reliable caretakers for them while you are away. I would love to be that person who helps you when you need it!

“Full-time pet caretaker (& pet lover & cuddler)”

Hello, I’m Kelsey! I have always been a MAJOR dog lover. When I was really young, I used to wish for a pet puppy each year as I blew out my birthday candles. My wish came true in 2003 with a rescued papillon mix, and since then I have owned three wonderful dogs. In 2010, I started walking and "dog-sat" for a variety of breeds- everything from chihuahuas and dachshunds to pit bulls and boxers! I cannot wait to meet your fur-baby and give them all the exercise and attention that they need!
