About Helene

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am Helene and my best fur buddy is Lucy. She just turned 8 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 and 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.
Available to care for cats, birds and fish at your house!

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 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.
