Dog training type
Chelsea is a true professional. My dog is ADHD, at best, and is on meds. Her rapport with him is outstanding and she has an uncanny ability to communicate with him and change/correct his wildness while training him to behave. He is learning many things, as am I, and if her work continues I can see there is a solution to our problems. I can’t say enough good things about Chelsea!Jan 17, 2020Verified
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.May 29, 2018Verified

I love Chelsea! She works very closely with my service dog when I am busy! She is the only person I would ever trust to help out with his training. The best pet professional I have ever met! I will never go anywhere else! It helps that all my pets love her just as much!Feb 28, 2018
Chelsea Kronick was the trainer--and will be on call--for my Service Dog even before he was a Service Dog. Forget about the fancy special skills for the dog: She took a nutball, somewhat aggressive Golden one-year old and his clueless owner and turned them as a pair into upstanding citizens ready for High Tea with the Queen. Do not let yourself miss working with Chelsea. 1. What's already a great gift: Her skill and understanding of how dogs think and act, and how to most effectively change them, guide the dog's nature, towards matching your needs, with the dog happier and more integrated than before. Add to that: What is unique in my 30 year experience of numerous trainers, who even for starters never came near Chelsea's skill with dogs: 2. No dog comes without a caregiver or two, and Chelsea learns _the relationship_ of the people to their pets in training mode and off; hell, she's discovered the relationship of the caregiver to himself as well: what goes through your mind when you are frustrated, or who (you/dog) has done what in the ongoing process of training as expectations and actions change and the method must adapt. It's entire process and its subtasks which Chelsea's learns, teaches, fixes. Rinse and repeat. Go with Sundog.Feb 27, 2018
Chelsea is a great trainer! She is highly knowledgeable about canine behavior and is articulate and clear when describing what’s going on with my dog. Since she started working with him (and instructing me on how to read and respond to him appropriately) he’s transformed into a well-behaved, obedient little companion. In addition, my dog has also learned a million new party tricks - which is always fun - and I’ve learned a bunch of strategies to keep him entertained and happy, even within the confines of city life, where I can’t just “let him out back” for excersise. Chelsea has also stayed at my apartment to dog-sit while I’ve been away. This is something that I’ve been nervous to do in the past, but I felt 100% comfortable having her in my home while out of town. She is trustworthy and consistent through and through. Most importantly, my dog loves her so much that I get a little jealous sometimes!!! He’s always excited to see me, but he loooooves her. I wholeheartedly recommend using Sundog Pet Care for all of your pet-related needs; I’ll never hire anyone else ever again. You won’t either.Feb 27, 2018
