About Helen

Hi fellow dog owners,

I have lived with dogs in my household all my life and I genuinely welcome all my doggie guests as part of my family. I offer overnight dog boarding, walking and day care, I am the best home from home for your pooch. I combine lots of love and attention with over 35 years experience looking after various breeds of dogs from small to large. I will collect and deliver home if required.

I provide a safe homely environment with 6ft fenced garden and I live in a cul-de-sac. I have a permanent baby gate to my front door to stop any escape issues! We walk dogs twice daily but we do not let any doggie guests off the leads. I separate all dogs at feeding time and provide all day access to outdoor garden area unless heavy rain or cold weather inhibit.

I am trained in dog obedience to Kennel Club Gold Award. I promote positive training by praising and rewarding with treats and I can use clicker training if required.

I offer a tailored service to suit your doggy needs and can help with dog behaviour, socialisation, toilet training, general training, well being and I give oral medication. I can accommodate 2 dogs from the same household at one time as long as they are small to medium size and who get on well.

    Molly had a great time with Helen on her very first visit today. She was happily tired when I picked her up, having had a busy time playing all day :) Helen messaged me during the day to let me know how Molly was doing, which was great. Will definitely use Helen again, thank you!

    First time for Murphy with Helen and her family, he settled in well and had an enjoyable time with his new buddies, would happily leave him in Helens care again. thanks Helen.

    Helen looked after our dog for a week - he hates kennels. he came back looking great and was obviously happy. Helen was kind enough to end us a text saying he was setting in well and then a lovely photo. It helped us to enjoy our holiday knowing that he was well. Thank you Helen
