Kelsey does a fantastic job walking our dog. She is very carrying and playful with Winnie. She sends notifications and pictures of when she picks Winnie up for her walks and where they have gone for the walks. Winnie is much more relaxed on the days Kelsey visits. See is trustworthy and prompt.

Kelsey was so sweet with our dog, and made our first day leaving her home alone SO SMOOTH! We highly recommend Kelsey- thoughtful, sweet, clean, and responds quickly!

Flexible sched., active; large yard

Hello! My name is Kelsey and I want to help you keep your pet happy and healthy! Professionally, I work with horses and at-risk youth; personally, I have owned and loved a variety of creatures: dogs, cats and horses are my core, but I've also had birds, rabbits, hamsters, snakes and fish. I have always loved animals- I got my first dog when I was 4 years old (I'm now in my 30's) and haven ...

What Kelsey would like to know about your dog

I will be as involved or distant from your dog's training and behavior modification as you would like me to be. My personal philosophy is that every moment is, and can be, a teaching moment when presented with pleasing or unpleasing behavior. For example, jumping on guests, pulling on the leash and "bum-rushing" the door is not typically behavior I allow to happen regularly or 'encourage' through lack of correction. While I am not a certified trainer or strictly follow a Positive Reinforcement (+R) approach, I prefer to use force free or light touch methods of behavior modification. Again, this is your animal and I am here to care for them in whatever way will be most beneficial to your relationship in the long-term!

When Kelsey watches your pet

I am happy to travel to your neighborhood or take on a house guest! I live on the outskirts of the Normal Park Neighborhood in Ypsilanti, which is an older neighborhood with tree lined streets and multiple parks. My back yard is quite long for a city lot, and is the perfect spot for some one-on-one fetch, or training. I have two cats at my home, so any overnight or long term sitting requires a dog that is OK with felines. Any short term or in-house sitting for a dog that is NOT cat friendly is very manageable with advanced notice.
