About Helen

I grew up with dogs and I got my first dog, Ragwort as soon as I left home and I still miss him every day! Dog Buddy allows us to meet, love and play with lots of dogs! We have always had rescue dogs so we can cope with nervous and more difficult dogs. We live next door to Blean Woods and we are ten minutes from the beach so seaside walks too. We are both very active dog owners who love toy chucking, tug of war, belly tickles, sleeps by the fire and cuddles in bed for dogs who take a while to settle. We treat your dogs as if they were our own and we take them all out together if we can or in shifts if we can't. We walk ours twice a day as we believe that dogs who get plenty of exercise, stimulation and love are then happy to be asleep at home and are chilled out with visitors and other dogs. Our boarding fee therefore reflects this level of care and two long daily walks, occasionally more!

    Left Tilly with Helen for three nights and everything went really well. Lots of walks and interaction with other dogs. Helen kept us up to date with how Tilly was doing each day, so we could enjoy our weekend away, with no worries. I definitely recommend Helen and would use her again :-)
