Cassandra -  I can not accurately put into words how impressed I was with the care Chelsea gave our reptiles while we were gone. She came highly recommend and after our trip we now know why! She came out for a meet and great, took excellent care of our beardie and our tortoise, brought them the food so we didn't have to prepare ahead of time and came back once we returned with some helpful info to step up our parenting game for both of them. Our beardie was getting over a rough wake up from brumation and she experimented with new foods and gave us a report of the new things he showed interest in and sent us pictures almost daily. She went above and beyond in every single way. I highly suggest everyone use her service .... but then again I want to keep her all to myself! Anyone who decides to use the services

will not be disappointed!

  Jill -  I do not have enough good words to say about Chelsea and her dedication to the animals she works with. She has been caring for my reptiles for years and long periods of time while I am away. The care and communication is what you are always looking for in a pet sitter and the extra mile if the animal requires a vet visit while you are gone. Look no further, she is the person you are looking for.  

Patricia Latas DVM - Wonderful, friendly, hard-working, reliable (and forgiving of us non-traditional companion/exotic/special animal people and our dedicated and justified paranoia about pet-sitting)...and loves her work and the animals. Chelsea has a great base in wildlife and exotic care and husbandry and does a top-notch, professional job. She knows birds, she knows herps, she knows inverts. Highly recommended! Don't worriedly put your trust in dog-cat sitters ever again! 

Stephanie - Scaled Sitting & Services boarded and took excellent care of our veiled chameleon. Chelsea is professional, knowledgeable, respectful & cares greatly for animals. As new chameleon owners, we had many questions about our pet & Chelsea provided expert information & tips.  

Bryan, Paradise Parrot Rescue - If you have an exotic animal, reptile or bird, Chelsea is who you want to take care of them for you when you need a reliable and knowledgeable caretaker. She does grooming, enclosure cleaning, and she has a great background in animal care.

  TamaraChelsea is beyond AMAZING! I have three parrots and was extremely nervous leaving my girls for the holidays. Taking care of parrots is not easy, they are high maintenance and they are SUPER messy! I need not have worried! I received check-in's daily from Chelsea and pictures of my birds! She cared for them as though they were her own. All instructions were carried out to a "T" and my house was cleaner than I had left it. The option to leave my pets in their home was healthier, safer and I was worry free! Thank you Chelsea for the love you gave to Aurora, Stormy & Ivy! We will look forward to seeing you next time!  

Ian - I'm blown away by the professional and reliable service I got from Scaled Sitting & Services. While I was away I received regular updates as well as pictures and details about all of my pets (three snakes and two geckos) all of them were well cared for and handled perfectly. Even the picky eaters. SSS are responsive, reliable, and detailed. This is 100% the service I'll be using if I ever need my reptiles taken care of in the future.

 Jackie - Chelsea took great care of my English Budgies and Betta fish while we were gone for Thanksgiving vacation. She sent regular updates and pictures so I knew my babies were happy. I will definitely use her again.  

Amanda -  Best ever! I couldn't say enough about how impressed I am with Chelsea and her services! Professional, personable, flexible, kind, caring, the whole shebang! I would definitely recommend her to anyone with a frog, reptile, exotic, etc. Will definitely use her services whenever I travel again! Thank you for being awesome!

Yasmine - Chelsea was able to take my bearded dragon on short notice and was able to provide me with updates on his well-being when I was on vacation. Being able to get updates really took all my worries away. The whole process was easy from drop off to pick up, loved how she had a list of vet recommendations just in case there was an emergency, my little guy recently lost a toe and has some tummy problems, it felt great knowing she used our vet.

Anthony - Chelsea is awesome! She cared for our bearded dragon when we were out of town and really put our mind at ease. We got regular updates and she did some grooming for us. Highly recommend!

 Alex - As a pet sitter myself- it’s great to know that I have someone to trust while I take a break from home! We all love an educated and efficient person! Especially when it comes to our animals.  

Leah -  Chelsea did a great job taking care of my bearded dragon, crested gecko, and bunny! She was very knowledgeable and kept us informed that my pets were doing well while I was away. Very happy with her services and will

definitely hire her again!

Alex -  Highly recommend!! I could not have been more happy or felt more comfortable leaving my slimey and scaley family members in their very qualified care.

Michelle - This place was a god send. We have had snakes for a while and when we go away we just have someone come over and check on him, we feed before and after the trip. With our new addition to the family I had no idea what to do. 

They took in our beardie for 10 days and treated her fantastic!! Making sure to find out the foods she likes, they had new things for her to try and sent us pictures every couple of days to let us know how she was doing.

In addition their prices are reasonable and if you choose their  enclosures, they are waiting so all you have to take is your pet. This is my daughter’s pet and this was the best first experience for all of us, we would use them again for sure!

 Ingrid - Chelsea is absolutely fantastic! I had an unexpected trip come up and she was so fantastic with taking in my baby cockatiels while they were still being handled. She sent me picture updates and would answer any questions I had; she even went above and beyond to ask a friend of hers about something my babies had going on with their feathers. She is seriously the best and took excellent care of my baby birds. Thank you so much!  

Kate - What really pleased me was that she went beyond just feeding them. She cleaned their homes and accessories to practically brand new fresh out of the package levels! Her knowledge and professionalism are beyond reproach! She also taught me new ways to make my critters even happier! Any future trips, I will call upon her!  

Traci - We had a great experience using Chelsea's sitting for two bearded dragons. Her enclosures, salad and big selection is amazing. Chelsea is very knowledgeable about caring for scaled pets and her passion shows in the services she provides. Definitely using her again later next month!

Amy Chelsea is so kind and knowledgeable. It’s such a huge relief to know that if I ever need someone to care for my exotics I don’t have to stress over trying to find a friend to give a laundry list of complex instructions to and hope they’re not squeamish about dead mice. I will absolutely be utilizing her services again. 

JanineChelsea used her expertise in husbandry to take excellent care of our wild array of reptiles, fish, and spiders. She was extremely professional and kept us up to date on our beloved pets. She even gave us some pointers on how to better take care of our pets. She is wonderful to work with.

MelodyChelsea watched our home/pets for a week while we were out of town. Despite our animals being a bit out of her norm; she did a fantastic job, our animals were well taken care of and communication during the time we were gone was great. It made our trip much less stressful to know our animals were in good hands. 

  DJ - Chelsea was great and very knowledgeable. I will for sure use her services again if needed!  

DaveWe were heading out of town on short notice so we turned to Chelsea at Scaled Sitters and things couldn't have worked out better. Our beardie was well cared for, pampered would be a better description! Because of the reptile knowledge, professionalism and reliability of Chelsea we will not hesitate to use their service in the future. Highly recommended.

Sabrina -  Where do I start??!! I felt completely comfortable using Scaled Sitting & Services! Chelsea took care of our bunny while we were on vacation and loved up on him while we were away. While we were gone I received photos and updates which made me and my family even more comfortable and at ease. When we got back and picked our bunny up his cage was cleaned, well fed and happy. We will definitely be using her again. So if you're wondering what to do with that exotic pet or furry friend give her a call! She was extremely flexible, knowledgeable and caring.

Mohamad - Chelsea has been so helpful. I contacted her and when I entered her home, I was very impressed. She has everything you can think of for boarding and a very cool reptile collection! I highly recommend her and her services as she has loads of knowledge and believe me she knows reptiles better than anyone I know personally. 10/10. Thank you for making me feel very relieved with where I drop my bearded dragon!
