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 chilled out with visitors and other dogs. Our boarding fee therefore reflects this level of care and two long daily walks, occasionally more!

    Ruari came back tired and happy both days. He loved playing with the other dogs and Helen sent me pictures and messages throughout the day. She also used the 'walkies' feature which let me see where Ruari had been on his walk which was nice. Would recommend.

    Helen has been wonderful with Sky. She's been looking after her during the day and socialising her with her own dogs which has benefited Sky immensely. Sky is always happy to see Helen and looks forward to playing with her dogs. Helen is always very helpful and flexible with my needs. I would definitely trust Helen with my dog any day.

    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!
