About Tom and Helen

We have been life long dog lovers growing up with chocolate labradors (Tom) and Vizslas (Helen). We love to explore the parks and open spaces in our patch of London. Long walks - no matter how bad the weather - have become part of our daily life. We both work from home so have very flexible schedules. We are lucky to have plenty of space with an outdoor courtyard garden and live moments from two large parks.

Our own dog is a mixed breed (totally mixed!) called Gizzi who is two and a half. She absolutely loves other dogs, is very playful and also needs a lot of walking (at least two walks a day) to burn off her boundless energy. After joking that Gizzi had so many dog beds that we should start to Airbnb them, we came across DogBuddy. While we don't have a second dog to be her buddy, we are certain that she would love the company of having another dog around the house. Tom is particularly keen to have more dogs to play with!

We currently look after a schnauzer puppy on a fairly regular basis and do a 12-1pm-ish walk in Abney Park. We are flexible on drop off and pick up times as we both work from home.

    Tom and Helen were fantastic with Huba, from the minute I left him I felt at ease knowing he was in good hands. They have a dog as well named Gizzi, who is also very friendly and sociable around other dogs. I am sure this helped him settle in. The updates via pictures and texts were great as it put to bed any thoughts of "How is he doing? etc." Would certainly recommend to others and would not hesitate to call upon again if required. Thanks a lot guys!

    I would be happy to recommend Tom and Helen. We did a meet and greet the day before to let our dogs meet each other. Gizzi (their dog) was a real sweetie, and very nice with new dogs. On the day they were very flexible about drop off and pick up times and sent a couple of photos and updates (which we really appreciated). I will be using them again.

    Tom & Helen are lovely, very friendly, kind, reliable & responsible, our dog just stayed with them for 13 nights, I collected him today & he's happy,, well & very calm. Helen sent a few pics while we were away, it was great getting these & it definitely seemed as though our pooch had a great time with them, am so happy to have found such a nice couple to take care of Coco & I would definitely recommend them.
