About Helen

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 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! I separate all dogs at feeding time and provide all day access to outdoor garden area unless heavy rain or cold weather inhibit.

I 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. We walk dogs twice daily but we do not let doggie guests off the leads.

I offer a tailored service to suit your dogs needs and can help with dog behaviour, socialisation, toilet training, general training, wellbeing 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.

Please note I am unavailable from 19th May to 4th June and I am unable to take any bookings that fall within this period.

    I left my 13 year old Westie with Helen and her husband for the first time today. Everything was so easy from the booking up right through until I picked Todd up this evening. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble at all. I really got the impression that they not only wanted to take good care of Todd but to make everything easy for me too including a 6.15am drop off. I will definitely be asking Helen to look after Todd again - he was in very good hands.

    I left our 4 month old puppy,Gilbert with Helen for the day yesterday. He had a lovely stay :) Helen is a lovely lady and obviously enjoys looking after dogs. Very professional and had lots of great advice for me regarding Gilbert. I certainly will be happily leaving him with her again. Thank you so much Helen and DogBuddy! What a great service :)

    We left Lola with Helen for 2 weeks while we were on holiday. As well as being very professional and keeping you fully updated, Helen is a kind and caring person who obviously cares for her pets and guests very much.. we'd wholly recommend using her services.
