Helen is super friendly and super responsible. I've known her for years and I know that I can depend on her to always be on-time. She's also super organized. And plus, she's a huge dog lover!!

Helen is really great with dogs! I've asked her to take care of my Pomeranian Wall-e when I was out of town before and I knew everything would be fine as I've known her for forever. She fed him, walked him, played with him, and he was super happy :)

Home full-time - Adores all dogs

Hi there! I'm a recent Harvard grad who's home full time working on my own e-commerce brand, so I'm super flexible most of the time. I'm a huge dog lover, and grew up with my best friend, a Goldie named Cookie. I used to run with her, bike with her, play fetch with her in tennis courts, sleep on the couch with her -- and I'm happy to do the same with your pup. I'm pretty ...

What Helen would like to know about your dog

I would like to know of any special instructions I need to keep in mind - allergies, medications, aggressions toward other dogs/animals, food aggression, what the dog likes/dislikes, etc. Since I live in an apartment, I would prefer to not have high energy large dogs in the home (dog walking is totally fine, but dog sitting probably isn't such a good idea).

When Helen watches your pet

I would love to take your pup on strolls around the beautiful Palo Alto neighborhood. If you have toys, I'm also more than happy to entertain with tug-of-war, fetch, etc. If your dog needs a lot of exercise, I could also take him/her to Stanford campus where there's lots of grass and trails.
