Another great stay at Helen's! We had to extend our trip by a day because of unforeseen circumstances and Helen was able to accommodate. Don't know what we'd do without her.

Happy tails until you meet again!

If you're here, you're family! That's how I think about all the pups who come to visit me. I think I offer something special to my clients in that I am NOT just someone who absolutely loves dogs and opens their home to them. I am also a "retired dog professional" with 20 years of experience in dog training, fostering, sheltering and boarding. I can give your dogs a homey place to stay with a ...

What Helen would like to know about your dog

I like to know the basics of course -- your contact info, emergency contact and vet info. If you have any health concerns with your pup, I need to know those. It is also helpful for me to know what kind of training history there is and behavior traits. And if you are working on a particular behavior at home, let me know so I can continue the training during the stay. I honestly don't have a preferred breed. And this may sound strange, but my favorite dogs to board are the ones who are nervous about the whole "boarding" event. I enjoy the challenge of helping them relax and have fun, making it a positive experience for all!
