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!

    My little dog Maddie spent 2 days this week with Helen and her 2 dogs and had a lovely time. It was her first time with Helen and although on her fist day she was a little nervous, on her second day, she was just fine. She ran through the woods, played in the garden and then had a later walk in the field. Helen treated her like one of her own.

    Brilliant. Helen accommodated us at very short notice. Our badly trained and quirky Impi could not have been looked after better. Lots of walks, lots of attention, lots of love. All very much appreciated from our side and a very happy dog came home.

    Helen has looked after Wallace on a number of occasions and I always feel very assured that he is being well looked after. He is always pleased to see Helen and comes home looking very happy.
