While at college in Ohio, Chelsea would regularly pet sit for friends and family members. That is when her love for animals really blossomed, and she developed an interest in becoming a Animal Behaviorist. What Chelsea enjoys most about walking dogs is how they greet her, full of excitement and with wagging tails. She loves being able to provide all of the pets in her care with the love and attention they are missing when their pet parent is away or at work.
