Sundog Pet Care specializes in individually designed training, exercise and enrichment plans for urban dogs. We are devoted to FUN and EFFECTIVE training.
We have a small team of highly skilled pet professionals who understands the importance of a holistic approach to proper pet care.
Clients can expect daily updates with photos, in-depth reports and ongoing trainer support. As the needs of your pet and your family evolve, Sundog offers individual and life-stage specific weekly and monthly packages that change with the needs of your pet.
Making a difference in the life of an animal is always wonderful, but deepening the bond between owners and pets, and knowing that the services we provide give families- 2 and 4 legged members alike-a better quality of life is why we do what we do. At Sundog, the world revolves around your pet!
I am a certified trainer, accredited by the Certification Council of Pet Dog Trainers, and hold a Bachelors in Animal Behavior and Pychology. Despite over 14 years as a professional trainer, handler and instructor, I am constantly driven to deepen my understanding of behavior and training by attending seminars and workshops to hone my skills.

Chelsea knows dogs so well - she's taught me how to understand Gingko and figure out what she actually wants, so that we don't have to spend our time barking at each other. Highly, highly recommend Sundog.
Chelsea is the absolute best! You will not find a more caring, more conscientious, more knowledgeable person to take care of your pet. I trust almost no one to take care of my dog but when he’s with Chelsea, I don’t worry about him at all- she takes care of him like he’s her own (and most importantly my dog loves Chelsea more than anyone...which is all the recommendation you should ever need!)
We tried two other dog trainers before we came across Chelsea, and after speaking with her on the phone I immediately knew something was different about her, in the best possible way. She talked with us about focusing on what was causing our little guy to act out in the ways he had been, what we could and couldn't reasonably expect (this one was huge, and took a bit of vital human training on our part) and took the time to start us out with a strong foundation using techniques that worked—and that we were comfortable with—to create a lasting change in our rescue dog. You can tell Chelsea loves what she does and that she positively adores dogs and their people, too. Her approach is so affective because she treats dog psychology the same way the best specialists approach human psychology: by addressing the source of the behavior that causes the symptoms, and taking each dog's personality into account. At the same time, her methods seem to work magnificently across the board. She is brilliant, her methods are affective, she is highly professional but also extremely friendly and approachable. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to treat problematic behaviors in their beloved rescue dogs, but in any dog, really—it just takes a special person to have the knowledge and patience to work with a dog who has trauma they can never communicate with words.
Chelsea was awesome! She was incredibly personable and fun, while also providing very customized, accessible, professional advice for us and our pup. We already feel more comfortable and prepared to work safely and effectively with our pooch. Thank you!
I like to do a meet and greet or chat on the phone before our first session. I want to hear about your relationship with your dog; both what you like and what you want to change!
