Having a golden retriever is tough in Manhattan. It’s important that he’s well-behaved in close-quarters and that he has plenty of mental and physical stimulation, beyond going on walks. Chelsea is an expert in all of these areas. Her experience as a professional trainer was immediately clear from our first meeting and initial interaction with our dog, Senna. She works with him on reinforcing good behaviour and advancing his training — while keeping him ...

Chelsea was a wonderful dog sitter. We had a young puppy that was only 11 weeks old, and we were still in the process of crate training and Chelsea diligently woke up in the middle of the night to let him pee.

She's also an accomplished dog trainer, and was able to teach our young pup how to stay, and how to touch a target with his nose.

She was also courteous enough to follow ...

Chelsea is as animal-obsessed as you can get while still functioning in the human world. In the 10 years I've known her, she has always exhibited an admirable passion for animals. From her amazing (and really well-trained) little Japanese Chin, to the rescued shepherd mix whose anxieties Chelsea worked through with the utmost patience, Chelsea is always in tune to an animal's needs and what's best for them.

CPDT-KA: Humane, effective training

I am a certified professional dog trainer. I specialize in creating strong foundation skills to set and dog up for success as a pet, performance or service dog prospect.

I love dogs of all shapes and sizes, colors and creeds and am commited to using the most humane, modern, scientifically proven training and teaching methods based on behavioral science. I am also totally over the moon for cuddles, and any kind of work or play ...

What Chelsea would like to know about your dog

What are your dog's favorite treats and toys?!

My main questions for potential clients are:
Does your dog have any history of human or dog directed aggression?
Does your dog have any fears or phobias?
How does s/he react to them?
Does your dog hate anything or anyone?
What happens when those things are around?
How often do you feed, walk and groom your dog?
Does s/he have any medical conditions or history of (arthritis, infection, allergies, bloat)?
How about behavior problems (reactivity, OCD, aggression towards dogs or people, resource guarding)?
How do you deal with these in your home?
Are there specific behaviors you would like your dog to do or not do?
Is your dog allowed on the bed or furniture?
What cues or commands does s/he know?

Ask me questions too!

When Chelsea watches your pet

I am an avid walker and runner, so chances are your pup will be getting a lot of exercise, but I want to make sure I am keeping your pup on a consistent schedule and keeping up with their routine. I can usually arrange for one on one play dates in a private yard if that is something your dog would enjoy.
I also do couch or floor cuddle sessions, TV time and baths, brushing and nails on request.
