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!

    Helen took amazing care of my dog. He had a great week, lots of cuddles and fun with dogs.

    We never left our 8 year old dog with dogsitters before. From the beginning I knew he was in good hands. Helen took amazing care of him. He had plenty of walks, plays with dogs and cuddles 😊 We received many videos and photos, Tami had a great day. Definitely recommend!

    I can’t thank Helen enough. We left our two dogs, one being blind, over Christmas and had a continual raft of lovely messages and photos of Stiggy and Tangle looking exactly as they do at home. Helen and Kim genuinely open up their lovely home and treat them as their own. It is such a relief to find someone who will look after them with genuine care and affection. I no longer need to worry when we go away. My only reticence is sharing my new find online!
