Green Dog's newest handler is Chelsea Archer. Chelsea was born and raised here in Southern California, spent a few years in Iowa for college, and returned to California. She's worked as a nurse in long term care, as an x-ray technician for a chiropractor, and a few other character buildings jobs, but according to Chelsea, "None of it gave me the fulfillment that working with dogs has. To me, working with my K-9 is so much more than a job, we’re a team of detectives, and the two of us live for the hunt".
In her spare time she's out hiking or at the beach with the dogs, enjoying what nature has to offer. She also competes in dog sports, particularly dock diving.
Chelsea is based out of North County San Diego and we are excited to have her on Team Green Dog! She's part of 2 certified teams, with K-9 Elton and K-9 Louie.
