About Helen

Hi fellow dog owners,

I specialise in breeds with lower energy levels.

I have lived with dogs in my household all my life and I genuinely welcome all doggie guests as part of our family, living in the home with us. I offer overnight dog boarding, walking, and daycare, I am the best home from home for your pooch. I combine lots of love and attention with over 35 years of experience looking after various breeds of dogs from small to large but specialising in breeds with lower energy levels as I have a normal-sized garden. The principle to provide a safe healthy environment with lots of dog and people interaction.

I cannot take non-vaccinated dogs under the age of 10 years or unneutered males.

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, therefore, I cannot accommodate dogs that cannot be left alone in one room temporarily whilst I am in another without barking.

I have a permanent baby gate to my front door to stop any escape issues. I have gates throughout to separate dogs for feeding and gradual introduction. The dogs have 2 short walks twice daily and we do not let guests off leads. I provide all day access to the outdoor garden area unless heavy rain or cold weather inhibits. Someone is always present they are not left alone.

I am trained in dog obedience to Kennel Club Gold Award. 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, wellbeing 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 daycare covers up to 12 hours 7:30 to 7. I can collect and deliver for a small extra charge depending on the distance to travel. I offer discounts for longer bookings so get in touch to arrange meet and greet. I look forward to caring for your dog(s).

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.

I was very nervous leaving Jake as Helen has a few Dogs of her own. Jake isn’t very good with Dogs but I was amazed how well she integrated him with her Dogs and I needed of worried .

Helen was fantastic and I told her she was like the Dog whisperer.

I would recommend her with out any hesitation. Thank you Debbie Hayward
