Helen just watched our dog (came over to walk him multiple times a day) while my family was on a long vacation and I don't think we could be any happier with how it went. We were nervous to leave him for so long, but quickly felt very comfortable with Helen. She offered to visit beforehand to get to know him and prepare for taking care of him. While we were gone, she went well ...

Helen was great! It was my first time boarding my year old golden retriever and I felt comfortable leaving him with Helen and her pups after our meet and greet.

I have EIGHT webcams!!!!!

I early retired in April, 2017 so I am home full time. No distractions such as work or children. I'm the one who always dog sits for friends and family- even during holidays. I have 12 years experience in dog sitting and fostering (over 30 dogs). I am experienced w seizures, subQ fluids, eye/nose/ear/oral/skin meds, seniors, and much more. I also have eight webcams! You can watch your furbabies while you ...

What Helen would like to know about your dog

I am insured so I will need proof of vaccinations on file (Rabies, Bordatella, annual shots, flu shot recommended). I would love to hear the cute idiosyncrasies. In addition to my webcams I am very good at sending pictures/videos and updates. I don't have a breed preference. Due to neighbors in close proximity I do request non-barkers and no separation anxiety. I probably won't be able to handle large dogs that pull for those who need daily walks.

About Helen's Home

When Helen watches your pet

I have a membership to Cary Dog Park. I'm also a few miles from Lake Crabtree which is a 6 mile hike. I have taken visiting dogs camping with me (with prior permission). I have a 27ft camper in the foothills of NC with a fenced area. I am experienced in the different harnesses for dog waking.
