About Helen

I got my first dog, Ragwort as soon as I left home and I still miss him every day! As a couple, Kim and I would would love to rescue more, but for the moment Dog Buddy fills this gap. We have always had rescue dogs so we can cope with nervous and slightly more difficult dogs. We live next door to Blean Woods so have acres of woodland walks. 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 chill out with visors and other dogs. Our boarding fee therefore reflects this level of care and two long daily walks, occasionally more!

    I had to leave my 6 months old lurcher puppy with Helen at short notice for a night. Helen was very welcoming and her experience of handling dog was very obvious with Rocket almost instantly warming to her. She provided us regular updates including amusing pictures and walks. Highly recommend her and Helen thanks very much for being a great dog buddy!

    Helen was very accommodating despite my last minute changes. She knows what she's doing and I feel comfortable leaving Sky with her, knowing she will be well looked after. Helen also let me know her walking activity with Sky which I appreciated. I will most definitely be using Helen's services again. I highly recommend her as a dog carer.
