Kelsey was fantastic with our Stella girl! She came out to do a meet and greet the day before and I could tell instantly it was going to be a good fit. She sent picture updates throughout her stay and communicated well with me. She's warm, responsible, and has a big heart for her doggy clients. I plan to use Kelsey again in the future and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for ...

My Labrador retriever is overly energized and needs a good amount to of love and care. Kelsey and him became I start friends. He got long walks and was taken great care of. I came home from vaction and he missed her. She is responsible and very friendly. I'd recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great dog caretaker. Thanks Kelsey from Rachel and Diesel.

Kelsey loves dogs as much as she loves people, and that is no exaggeration! I have known Kelsey for a long time and know that dogs (and cats) have been a part of her life and family business since she was very young - her family had a pet sitting business that she grew up working for, and has been a passion of hers ever since.

She is extremely responsible and personable, and will do whatever ...

Dog sitting since 1997

My goal is to give your pet(s) as much love & affection while providing the utmost care while you are away. I grew up taking care of pets of all ages, shapes, sizes, and special needs. My family started an in-home pet sitting business when I was in Middle School and I helped run that business for 20 years. One of my biggest passions in life are animals. I love to see them happy ...

What Kelsey would like to know about your dog

My policy for meet and greets is to always meet you and your pet at home. That way I can get a feel for how the dog is in their own environment. I will ask you to walk me through the daily routine — feeding times, potty breaks, walks, play time, etc. I will also always ask that you leave a detailed note with the vet’s name and phone number, emergency contact, and eating schedule, just in case. I do not have a problem with any breeds. I love all types of dogs, no matter what size.

When Kelsey watches your pet

During the work week I will get up early enough to take your pup out for at least a 30 minute walk, giving her enough time to do her business and get a bit of exercise. Then I’ll feed her and make sure her water bowl is full. On my way out the door, I’ll give her a treat and make sure the TV or radio is on to provide some background noise for her. Once I get home from work, we’ll go for another walk before dinner. I usually like to take my clients on a walk around their neighborhood. However, if the owner give me permission to take their dog on a car ride, I would love to take the dog on any of the trails and greenways Raleigh has to offer.

Once we get some time to relax, it would be a full on snuggle session with one more potty break before we go to bed. If it happens to be the weekend, your fur baby and I will go on a long hike on the trails or maybe take a trip to the dog park. If it’s hot enough, we will even go for a swim! I go for a run on a daily basis and love to have my dog, or one of my client’s, on the run.
