About Helen

We love dogs. 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!

    My dog absolutely loves it at Helen & Kim's. Given he has massive separation issues, this is the biggest compliment. The best thing for me is knowing he is happy & well cared for & the drip feed of texts & little videos to see what he is up to. I recommend to others & will continue to do so.

    Maddie loves going to Helen's. As soon as I pull up outside, Maddie is wagging her tail and can't wait to get to the front door. She goes for walks in the woods, plays chase over the field and this Friday, she's off to the beach. She always comes home tired, but very content. I would highly recommend Helen and Kim.
