About Helen

Hi fellow dog lovers and owners,

Thornbury Dog Boarding for Teeny Tinys

I provide a service for small breeds, older dogs with disabilities and breeds with lower energy levels.

Day care and boarding is in my home in Thornbury. Dogs can be integrated or kept separate depending on the guests. I am not taking unneutered males at this time sorry unless they are very young. I do not take medium or high energy dogs.

I have lived with dogs in my household all my life and I genuinely welcome all doggie guests as part of our extended family, living in the home with us. I offer overnight dog boarding, walking and day care, I am the best home from home and we are always present. I combine lots of love and attention with over 40 years experience looking after various breeds of dogs from small to large but specialising in breeds with lower energy levels, seniors and puppies. I have a normal sized garden. I have parrots that live in cages. The principle is to provide a safe healthy environment with dog and people interaction. I cannot take dogs that are not vaccinated under the age of 10 years or need more than 15 minutes exercise am and pm.

I provide a homely environment with 6ft fenced Chihuahua proof garden! I live in a small cul-de-sac with houses on either side of us. I have a permanent baby gate to my front door and I have gates throughout to separate dogs for feeding, segregation and gradual introduction. The dogs have 2 short walks and we do not let guests off leads. I provide all day access to outdoor garden area unless heavy rain or cold weather inhibit.

I am trained in dog obedience to Kennel Club Gold Award. I have training certificates in Dog Training, Advanced First Aid for Puppies and Dogs, Pet Sitting and Dog Walking and Dog Grooming. I promote positive training by praising and rewarding with treats and I can use clicker training if required.

I offer a tailored service to suit your needs and can help with dog behaviour, socialisation, toilet training, general training, well being and I can give oral and eye medication. I can accommodate 2 dogs from the same household at one time who get on well.

I am normally available for pick ups and drop offs between 7:30 am and 9:00 pm. Price per night covers 24 hour period and day care covers up to 12 hours 7:30 to 7. I offer discounts for longer bookings so please get in touch to arrange a meet and greet. I look forward to caring for your dog(s).

From initial contact, Helen couldn’t have been any better! My dogs stayed for one night and Helen kept me informed with photos and texts too! Would have no hesitation to use Helen again. Thank you.

Helen has just had had fudge to stay for 11 days, Helen put my mind at rest from the first meeting, she also sent us regular updates and pictures, seeing fudge so happy and at home, made me relax and not worry, Helen took great care of Fudge and treated him like one of her own, i won't be sending fudge anywhere else from now on.
