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. From 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 30 years experience looking after various breeds of dogs from small to large. I trained in dog obedience to Kennel Club Gold Award. I promote positive training by praising rewarded by treats, I can use clicker training if required. We do not let doggie guests off the leads on walks.

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

Please note we are unavailable from 19th May to 4th June and we are unable to take any bookings that fall within this period thank you.

    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.
