Helen did a great job caring for our fur baby. She kept us informed and up to date with all pertinent information during her four consecutive days dropping in. We recommend Helen as a dedicated, and reliable dog sitter. There is no doubt we will utilize her services again.

If you're looking for a responsible, loving, energetic and FUN pet sitter, look no further! Helen G. is our dogs' number one choice when it comes to in-home pet sitting or just a walk in the park! When we tell our 12-year old shih tzu, 5-year old doodle and 1 1/2 year old poodle that Helen G. is coming to visit, they head to the door in anticipation to give her a warm greeting ...

I am breeder of Standard Poodles, Helen has helped me take care of all my dogs on a few occasions when I needed to be away from home for more than a few hours. She's was very kind to all of my dogs making sure all of them had all of their needs met from walking, feeding/watering, and petting them. She is very responsible and reliable. I highly recommend her.

I'm a dog magnet - I love them all!

I am a lifelong dog owner and lover - our most recent dog until we moved was a miniature poodle rescue. I love to play with dogs and give them the attention they crave and deserve. I know breed traits and am able to "read" the dog's needs well. I have taken care of friends' dogs of varying breeds and have a knack for forming bonds with them quickly. These dogs are always happy to see ...

What Helen would like to know about your dog

I would definitely wish to meet you and your dog at least once, maybe twice, on a "trial basis" prior to first assignments to get to know you and your dog more in depth, including leash behavior, and feeding habits, and so your dog becomes familiar and comfortable with me approaching and coming inside your home.

When Helen watches your pet

I love to check out neighborhood parks and walking paths, and, of course, since we are near the beach/oceanfront, possible beach walks. Play time would utilize the dog's favorite toys - lots of catch and return of toys, plus review and continuing "ed" (training) of basic dog behavior "skills" - sit, down, presenting paws (shake), quiet ("shhh!") and "speak" (bark).
