Helene was great. The dog was happy and she was so helpful. She kept great notes, sent pictures, and helped with the garbage and dishes. We’d have her back again any time.

About Helene

Dogs are my favorite people!

I have a 11 pound mixed she-poo, YumYum, who comes with me. She is gentle, sweet, and very laid back. if your dog wants to play with her she will. if your dog wants to be left alone that's O.K. too.
After 35 years of teaching special needs children, I am now retired and want to spend my free time with my 2nd love, pets.

What Helene would like to know about your dog

To make sure that your dog's stay is as comfortable as possible, I would like to know his/her likes and dislikes, favorite food, behavioral problems, fears, how he/she gets along with other dogs and people, any medical issues, things he/she likes to do; in short, what makes your dog happy. Also, it would be helpful to know special schedules that need to be followed, feeding, walking times.
I would be happy to sit for dogs in YOUR HOUSE that are over 25lbs.
No breed preferences, love them all, including special needs dogs!
