Helen delt w my crazy dog momness like a champ, she was so communicative and extremely attentive to the particular needs and diet and anxious behaviors of my fur babies.

It was such a pleasure to meet Helen. She's a responsible graduate student, with many years of experience caring for dogs. We left our puppy in her care without any worries.

I love meeting dogs of all shapes and sizes, but have a special place in my heart for poodles, bulldogs ...
