About Helen

Hi fellow dog owners,

I have lived with dogs in my household all my life and I genuinely welcome all doggie guests as part of our 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 can collect and deliver if required for small extra charge depending on distance to travel.

I specialise in small to medium breeds and bigger dogs with lower exercise needs. 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 and we do not let 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 can give oral and eye 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.

I am normally available for pick up and drop offs between 7 am and 9:30 pm. £25 price per night covers 24 hour period and day care covers 12 hours but contact me if you need something different, I look forward to caring for your dog(s).

    Helen was very efficient and always in contact to let us know how our dog was getting on.

    I can’t recommend Helen highly enough. Going to meet Helen beforehand gave me great confidence, and it was great to hear from her on the day how Florrie was getting on. Florrie came home happy and relaxed, and l would definitely use Helen again.

    Sounds like Simba had lots of fun at Helen’s and it was nice to hear from Helen during the day to let us know she was settled. Would definitely use Helen as a dog sitter again.
