Thornbury Dog Boarding


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 to 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 guest dogs 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. Please note I can only take 2 dogs from the same household which are fairly small and who get on well.

    We used Helen at the weekend to look after our little cocker spaniel and have been so delighted with her service. She invited us around to meet with her before the boarding date and was very warm and professional. Her house is incredibly well equipped for doggies, which really allowed us to put our mind at rest during the time she had him. Dropping off and collecting Saxon was very quick and efficient and Helen always greeted us with a lovely smile. we are sure that Saxon enjoyed his sleepover. He has been a very happy boy since we bought him home yesterday although he has been very sleepy so obviously enjoyed some nice walks and socialising with the other dogs which Helen has/boards. Thank you Helen, we are usually nervous about leaving our pup with people, but you made the whole process so much more relaxing and comfortable. We will definately see you again soon.

    This was the first time we had left Bella while we went on holiday,and she was looked after wonderfully. Helen was so reassuring to us and Bella just loved her visit. Thank you Helen.

    We highly recommend Helen. She took excellent care of our dog and he clearly had a great time! Helen even text us to let us know how he was doing. We will definitely use Helen again. Derek
