About Helene

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am Helene and my best fur buddy is Lucy. She turned 8 on October 24, 2016 and has had a magical affect on my life. Through Lucy, I have become a passionate animal lover, volunteering at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, completing all levels of animal care training and also became certified as a Vet Assistant through PBC Adult education. I am retired with a flexible schedule so your pup will have 24/7 supervision in a safe and loving environment. In my one story house your precious pup can roam the whole house, is welcome on the furniture and can sleep wherever they prefer. I also have dog steps for self assist or I will put them on whatever comfy place they show interest. Whether they want to play, explore or laze around, I guarantee lots of cuddles. As I've begun this dog sitting journey, I thank the pup parents who have entrusted me with their pup kids. Times spent together have been satisfying, fun and sometimes hysterical. I hope those of you out there who are searching for the perfect place and host, will give us the chance to share our home and our love with your precious pet. As cute and adorable they may be, accidents may happen, however, ALL DOGS MUST BE HOUSE BROKEN.

Sep 2016
Helene is very perceptive about people and pets. She helped me get acclimated as a first time dog owner and was extremely knowledgeable about what to expect, how to care for my dog after anesthesia and other ways to nurture my rescue terrier out of her trauma and shyness. She is resourceful and well rounded as a professional in general and she deeply understands the meaning of a dog's love in the life of any individual or family. Just like a child, when you're away, you want a caregiver for whom there is no such thing as too much love, too much attention, or too much nurturing.

Helene is an incredibly loving and reliable pet sitter. I have know her for many years and have seen her care for her Maltese Lucy with the utmost love and kindness. Having pets all her life, she is well aware of what it needed to trust someone with a beloved pet. aside from a safe and loving home, Helene provides attention, affection, and good judgement to any animal in her care. Any pet (and their person) would be lucky to spend time in Helene's home!

My Husband and I have never left our pooch with anyone other than our families and were very nervous to look for a sitter. But since we were getting married and all of our family were with us we had to find a perfect sitter for our dog.

From the moment we did a meet and greet with, Helene and her dog Lucy, we knew she was a perfect match to watch our little Nami.
She was very thorough with her paperwork to make sure she knows all of our dog, Nami's, needs as well as very loving with our dog.

Helene, sent us picture updates throughout our Nami's stay and even went out of her way to bring Nami to our wedding venue on-time (even though we were running behind schedule) so that we can take pictures with our dog for our wedding.

Even though we live in Miami, Fl, we'll definitely consider the drive up to, Helene, if we ever require a dog sitter again.

After having Helene take care of Lucy, my Maltese after my mom had passed away in November, I had no qualms to let her take care of Lucy when I went on a two week cruise with my fiancé. I got constant updates, pictures, e-mails and I even Facetimed Helene and spoke to Lucy on our cruise.
Helene is a devoted, loving, caring dog lover who will take impeccable care of your fur baby. Your doggie baby is in the best of hands.
Helene and her hubby, Dave have their own fur baby, a Maltese whose name is also Lucy. When my Lucy comes over, there are two Lucies in the house. Helene's Lucy is a sweet natured, gentle Maltese who is a total love muffin, and loves everyone, including your dog.
I wholeheartedly recommend Helene to anyone who is looking for a loving, warm and happy environment for their doggie.

After doing a Meet & Greet last month with Helene, I knew that I had to look no further. Helene is a true dog lover, takes impeccable care of her own dog and her home. When I told her that I cook chicken for my baby, Lucy who is a Maltese,
she ran over to her refrigerator and showed me her cooked chicken for her Maltese who she cooks for, and also happens to be named Lucy.
My mother passed away on 11/4/16 in Florida, and I needed someone to take care of Lucy so I could fly to NY to bury my mom in NY. Not only did Helene take Lucy on very short notice, but she actually came to my mother's funeral service in Florida.
She is an exceptional person, has a heart of gold, and would take care of your fur baby as if he/she were her own baby. Your dog could not be taken care of by anyone better than Helene.

Helene is a very caring person. Helene, her husband David & her dog Lucy offer a great environment for any dog staying there. My dog Rocky seems to enjoy staying there. Sometimes I wonder if he wants to come home. Helene treats Rocky like a member of their family. I would recommend to anyone who needs a place for their dog.

We drove from St Louis to Florida with our Zoey, for a trip to Puerto Rico with our kids. We were anxious about leaving our 'baby' in a strange place. Immediately on meeting Helene and their Lucy, we were much more at ease. It is obvious they love dogs. We got daily updates, & pictures, and it was apparent our baby had made herself at home. If we have another occasion to need a sitter in Boynton Beach, we would hope Helene can watch her again. Thanks for loving on our baby when we weren't around.

My fiancé and I did a Meet & Greet with Helene & her hubby, David, and instantly knew she and he were the perfect fit for our little Lucy, who is a Maltese. The funny thing is that Helene & David also have a Maltese by the name of Lucy. We also have a temporary dog living with us who is a Shih-Tsu named Charles, as my daughter and her family relocated from the West Coast and is temporarily living with us.
This past weekend, Lucy and Charles went to have their first sleep over with Helene, David & their Lucy. We have now dubbed her Lucy, Big Lucy and my Lucy, Little Lucy.
All I can say is the love and care this couple gave to Little Lucy and Charles is amazing. I would never trust my dog and my daughter's dog with anyone else. They are true "dog people". Dogs to them are people. When we finally had to pick Little Lucy and Charles up, they didn't want to go. Charles plopped himself on the large comfy bench in their living room, and Lucy was running away from me. When they got home, they were sulking and down in the dumps. Case closed. We have found our home away from home for Little Lucy and Charles at Helene & David's house.
Thank you Helene & David for being such wonderful doggie parents to our babies.
