About Kelsey

Dear pet owners! Dag eigenaars van huisdieren!

My name is Kelsey and I am a Canadian pet lover. I just moved to Mechelen after living in Leuven for 5 years! I am here in Belgium as a PhD student in Psychology and Educational Sciences. Sadly, I don't have any furry friends of my own and thus have very little interactions with furry friends. I do have 4 fish to keep me company though! I grew up with two cats, a dog, and two budgies and have been around animals my whole life! I am offering petsitting services because I am genuinely interested in hanging out with your beloved pet while you go on vacation or leave the city for any reason. If there is anyone who needs a pet sitter to walk their furry friends or to watch them while you go on vacation! I used to walk my own dog, feed my cats and dog and birds, clean the litter of the cats, comb my dog and of course, cuddle and play with them all! I also worked at a summer camp for kids who wanted to be veterinarians, and have lots of experience with other pets as well (turtles, rats, ghekos). I have a lot of experience, so no animal should be a problem. I love to help people, I am very friendly and I truly enjoy hanging out with animals. So, if you're in need of a pet sitter for a couple days, please let me know! I would be happy to feed and play with and cuddle your pets!

Please find below some basic information about what I offer:

--> Dog walking

-Dog walks are typically 30 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on the dog's needs

-I offer one to two dog walks per day

--> Dog/Cat/Other boarding

-I am working from home every day, so your pet can have company the whole day! (I find that in a post-covid world, pets are quite used to this). For longer stays, there might be some moments when I leave the house (e.g., to get groceries), but it shouldn't be too long :)

-Since I am home all day, I can take your dog out for a walk as many times as you need :)

-I live in an apartment in the centre of Mechelen with my boyfriend. We are both animal lovers and are happy whenever we get to have a visitor! We have a small terrace, but for dogs to do their business, I will take them outside for a walk.

--> House sitting

-I can work from anywhere that has wifi, so if you need me to come to your house, I can be there at all times and hang out with your furry friend!

--> Other

-If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to message me! Looking forward to meeting you and your furry friend!

Kelsey was amazing, my old cat Maurice was really fond of her! At his age, he needs more attention than anything else, really, so Kelsey was the right person to give him that. You can tell she loves animals. She was quite conscientious and always sent a picture or a message to let me know how my pet was. I felt 100% reassured when I left that my cat would be in good hands. Highly recommend Kelsey!
