Co-Owner & Manager
Animal Behaviorist & Training Consultant
20+ years of animal care & training experience
From a young age, Chelsea has always been intrigued by animals. When she was little, she expressed her concern for animals (both domestic and wild) through writing and art.
Growing up, she was known as the ‘Animal Girl’ and volunteered at several humane societies and wildlife rehab centers. Chelsea was the go-to person for any friends that needed their pets looked after while they were away, or to train their dogs some manners, fun tricks, or healthy agility.
She gained professional experience in training, boarding, general care, grooming, and client communication while working for companion animal businesses. She then made the journey from Florida to Maine to attend Unity College.
Since completing her Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife Conservation, Chelsea has worked for a variety of conservation programs researching wild animals throughout the country, including: shorebirds, seabirds, sea turtles, wolf-dog hybrids, Red wolves, Mexican gray wolves, coyotes, black bears, raptors, loons, raccoon, foxes, deer, and bats.
This varied background gives Chelsea a perspective that is unique among trainers and pet care providers. Her advanced animal behavioral research experience fuels her success in making nervous pets comfortable and rehabbing dogs with severe issues.
In her spare time she can be found hiking or canoeing with her partner, Phelan, and their three dogs, fostering dogs for Almost Home Rescue of New England, rehabbing wildlife as New Moon Wildlife Rescue, managing the conservation based non-profit, Balloons Blow, along with her sister, or volunteering at the Waterville Humane Society.
Throughout her career with wildlife, she has continued her work with companion animals – providing excellent, professional care and training for dogs, cats, and other beloved animals.
Chelsea has appeared on television, in-person, and in print and is available to speak to your group on animal rights, training, issues and other related topics as schedules allow. Please call for more information.
