About Helen

Hi fellow dog owners,

I am unavailable from 24 April to 20 May.

I have lived with dogs in my household all my life and I genuinely welcome all doggie guests as part of our family, living in the home with us. 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 but specialising in breeds with lower energy levels, seniors and puppies. The principle to provide a safe healthy environment with dog and people interaction.

I provide a homely environment with 6ft fenced Chihuahua proof garden! I live in a small cul-de-sac with houses on either side of us. I have a permanent baby gate to my front door and I have gates throughout to separate dogs for feeding, segregation and gradual introduction. We walk dogs twice daily and we do not let guests off leads. I provide all day access to outdoor garden area unless heavy rain or cold weather inhibit. Someone is always present they are not left alone. At the moment I can't accommodate unneutered male dogs as I'm waiting for the right time to get my youngest spayed.

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 needs and can help with dog behaviour, socialisation, toilet training, general training, well being and I can give oral and eye medication. I can accommodate 2 dogs from the same household at one time who get on well.

I am normally available for pick ups and drop offs between 7:00 am and 9:00 pm. Price per night covers 24 hour period and day care covers up to 12 hours 7 to 7. I can collect and deliver for small extra charge. I offer discounts for longer bookings so please get in touch to arrange a meet and greet. I look forward to caring for your dog(s).

    Helen was amazing. It was Millie’s first time being looked after outside her home & she obviously had a great time! We will be back!

    I can reassure, other dog owners, that, my dog, Lilly, was extremely well looked after by Helen and her Husband and highly recommend their service.
