I am a 24 year old ESL Teacher who recently finished a year long contract in South Korea. Currently, I teach English online while I travel. I will be moving to South America in late 2019, but until them I am looking to explore new places while still having a consistent home base for my job. I can go just about anywhere as long as there is a stable internet connection. I am an active, nature loving person who enjoys learning and discovering new things.
I want to house sit because I think that it is a great way to immerse yourself in a new community and really learn about the culture rather than get sucked into the tourist traps. In addition, I absolutely love animals and highly enjoy taking care of them.
I am experienced as a pet sitter/ house sitter. I have taken care of family, friends and neighbors animals and homes since I was a teenager and having completed four jobs in three different countries from this website. I have cared for cats, dogs, llamas, goats, chickens, and ducks. I have also taken care of animals who required administration of medicine daily. I am reliable and patient; always willing to put whatever the animal needs first.
I have a lot of experience with animals and have been taking care of them for as long as I can remember. While I travel far too much to have an animal myself, I constantly love the opportunity to play and walk with the pets of family and friends. As well, I am an energetic person, so if you have an active pet then I am more than willing to go for long walks or play with them endlessly. As a plus, my family's business is a Flower Shop. So, I am excellent at taking care of any household plants, flowers, or an outdoor garden. I can promise you that I could be a consistent and loving sitter. Lastly, I am a non-smoker and I don't party. I would much rather curl up with a book or go for a hike.

Chelsey came to mind our beloved animals for a week in September while we were on holidays and I can not say enough good things about her. Chelsey settled in immediately to the house and the animals routines, it felt as if she had been there forever and so I felt very comfortable leaving her there in our absences. As pet sitters go we could not ask for anymore than she did. She kept in touch with us regularly sending us updates by phone and I our animals actually missed her after she left!! I would have not hesitation to recommend Chelsey for any sitting jobs in the future and would also love to have her back with us!
We Loved chelsey's bio about herself and her other pet sitting adventures so we jumped at the chance to take her on with looking after our Dog, Henry and Burmese cats, Ruby and Monty. We picked her up at the airport a few days before we went away so we could show her around the house and to get to know our pets. What struck us about Chelsey was how friendly and charming she was. Always smiling and willing to help with the pets or even helping us get ready for dinner. Our pets took to her so quickly which was great to see as it's so important for someone new to have a rapport with them. We knew from the moment we met her that our house and pets were in very good hands. When we were away she always kept us updated as to how our pets were and where she had gone to walk our dog. The other great thing about Chelsey is that she loves hiking and running so Henry got plenty of long walks. when we returned from holiday our pets looked amazing, healthy happy and vibrant exactly how we left them. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Chelsey and she even familiarised herself with UK driving as we insured her on our car. we were so happy we chose Chelsey, she was amazing and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to anyone as a house/pet sitter
Chelsey did a fantastic job of keeping our fur babies content while we were away! We have two cats; a 22 year old female indoor(only) orange tabby and a 13 year old indoor/outdoor male Maine Coon mix. Our elderly tabby is completely deaf and needs a fair amount of love and attention. She's often confused in the night, gets stressed, shakes and makes a heck of a racket for no reason - she just needs some love then she goes back to sleep. Chelsey knew how to take care of her and calm her back down. She was quick to train Chelsey to where the treats are kept also! Our Maine Coon is an independent boy who likes you to sit and have your morning coffee on the porch before he checks out the neighborhood. He does come back for his regular meals and extra lap time in the afternoon. We do require that he does have to be locked in at night so the foxes don’t try to eat him. He is also very quick to train the caretakers on his treats as well! Some of the other things that Chelsey did while house/pet sitting: pick up our mail, light cleaning around the house, water our houseplants, and give treats to our resident Great Blue Heron. Our bayou neighborhood has a heron who has trained us all to feed him. We trained her like he trained us. Once he's familiar with you he will come near the porch to let you know he's ready for you to feed him: she would walk down to our dock to throw him small pieces of meat; throw stale bread into the water so that the fish would come close to the surface and he could fish for them himself; or she would put chicken carcasses into our pin fish trap and feed him the fish that were caught. By the time we returned, our heron would run after her down the dock because he knew she would make sure he got some treats. Chelsey was a kind and wonderful sitter, my cats really loved her. Even my cranky elderly tabby grew to love her. She was patient and with her online job she was able to keep a close eye on them and provide lots of snuggles. She kept our home clean and neat; it was in top shape when we returned. I couldn’t give a higher recommendation to Chelsey; she loves animals and they in turn love her.
Chelsey Schultz has taken care of my rather large house and eight pets in the past and I am pleased to report she will be on site here August 1st through 8th while my husband and I are fishing in Alaska. Chelsey has remarkable common sense and lifelong companion animal experience, along with an outstanding education.....all of which adds up to a worry-free vacation for me.
