About Helen

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
The Hunt family consists of Helen (me) Jon (train driving husband) and our son and daughter. I am a stay at home Mom/Artist with a 7 and 5 year old who are very accustomed to animals and very gentle. We have a ranch house that is open plan with hard wood floors and a huge fenced in yard. I have my own car to use for picking up and dropping off. We live 2 minutes from Melas Dog Park in a leafy neighborhood great for walking dogs. I grew up in rural England and have spent my life around animals. After dropping my children off at school I am home all day working on art projects and so your pet will have company and access to outside whenever needed. If your pet is on the introverted side we can always accommodate by setting aside a bedroom for alone time. We would love to own a dog but I intend to go back to full time work in a couple of years and so am nervous that, then, our busy life will be a lonely setting for a pet. I have listed the preference of one pet but we are happy to take multiples of pets that live together. Please let us get a fix of the joy that animals can bring while knowing your most precious loved one is in safe and warm hands.

Helene took great care of our 1 year old schnauzer mix. She and her family is well set up to provide a loving home to any dog! Shaggy had a great time with the family and other doggie friends. I sure will be coming back with Shaggy :-).
This is the first time I had to use a dog sitter and Helen and her family are perfect. I was more comfortable leaving Bella with Helen and her family then my own brother. They were a complete joy, professional and very loving family towards Bella. I received pictures and updates as the week went on. I will definitely use her services again.
Excellent. Helen even looked after Greg with a poorly paw. He was happy and settled and it was the first time that we have left him...amazing! Thoroughly recommend!
Helen and her family were wonderful hosts for our dog Blue. We received daily updates and photos. It made our vacation stress free knowing that Blue was lovingly being cared for. Blue especially loved Helen's children who were amazing with her. We will definitely book with Helen again.
Our boys stayed with Helen and her family over a long weekend. Our dogs are like our children and we are cautious about who watches them. During our meet and greet with Helen (and her kids:), she made us and our dogs feel at ease. Helen was very professional and asked all the right questions; she really knows her stuff. My dogs can be a little challenging at times and we discussed (and practiced) how to best handle them (calm and patient). My dogs were not raised around children, so it was important that they interacted well with their kids. Her kids were perfect with them; they knew how to approach and play safely with them. Helen sent us pictures of them cuddling at bedtime – very sweet. Our boys came home well rested and happy. I would definitely recommend and will use Helen to watch our boys again.
Helen is great. She's super nice and very accommodating and is able to handle multiple dogs. Thanks for taking good care of Mercedes!
Sophie told us that she had a wonderful time with Helen and her family. Helen communicated with Diane and I during Sophie's stay which provided peace of mind while we were away. We will be using Helen again.
Helen and her family took such great care of Luigi he was reluctant to come home. They are so welcoming and dog friendly, he just loved it there. I recommend them and would definitely use Helen again!!
Helen and her whole family were fantastic with my darling dog, Cammy. They handled Cammy's charms and quirks with humor and patience, including her initial period of awkward aloofness, soon followed by her characteristic lovey-dovey nature. From the regular email updates I received I could tell that Cammy was well integrated into the household in short order. In fact, when I came to pick her up at the end of our trip it was obvious she considered them all to be a part of her "pack."

Cammy had never stayed with anyone besides me or my parents before, so we were a bit nervous about this whole vacay thing, but everything went great and I am sure she enjoyed her vacation even more than we had hoped. If Cammy were ever in need of a host again she would definitely stay with Helen and co.
It was very nice to meet with Helen's adorable family. Helen took wonderful care of my senior dog KoKo. We look forward to working with Helen more in the future.
Helen is lovely. She addressed all my concerns. I didn't worry about my "baby" at all while we were away.
Helen and her family were great with our Benny he came home happy and best of all, tired.
Helen and her family were GREAT and took excellent care of my 18 month old collie. I would highly recommend her.
This was the 2nd time my two dogs stayed with the Hunt family. They are all very loving and caring with the dogs. I would definitely use the Hunt family again when I need a pet sitter.
Very loving to Jesse. Helen and her children were very gentle and kind to my dog. He came home tired, happy and calm. Highly recommend. Thanks Helen!
Helen was a great dog sitter. She did an amazing job watching our dog. She sent pictures to us of our dog throughout our vacation and communicated well to us. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter. Thank you, Helen!!
HELEN and her family are awesome and so compassionate. The entire family treats our dog like it's part of their family, too. I feel so bad when our dog gave them a hard time at night but they made sure that our dog felt secured. I highly recommend Helen. The whole family is so pleasant.
Helen and her family are so very delightful. I could not have left Mia in better hands. She goes out of her way to help the puppies she watches and makes them very comfortable. Thank you, Hrlen
My small dog Pansy is a senior citizen, mostly deaf and completely blind. Helen and her family met her needs perfectly, giving her plenty of opportunity to sniff around outside. The children are delightful with dogs and were carefully instructed how to interact with an old dog. Helen was very prompt in responding to my messages. This visit (our first with Helen) was a winner!
I cannot thank Helen and her family enough for taking care of my girl. I have an elderly, diabetic, blind and partially deaf dog. Helen was so accommodating and took excellent care of her the week I was gone. She catered to her needs and gave her her insulin twice a day. She sent pictures and gave me daily updates. I wasn't concerned one bit!!
Helen and her family were great. We could tell from our first meeting that she loves dogs and will do whatever she can to make all of us feel as comfortable as possible. Our dog fit right in with her family and was very well loved. We are excited to have him stay for a longer visit this summer!
Helen and her family were great! My 10 month old puppy, Packer, had such a good time. He can be tough to handle sometimes because he is very energetic but Helen was so patient with him. He was allowed to go anywhere in the house and lay on the couches. Helen even let him sleep with her. Packer also loved the backyard! Overall, it was a great experience and will definitely use "The Hunt Pet B and B" again!
My dogs had a GREAT time with Helen H! They were exercised more there then when they are at home. she kept us updated with texts and pictures so we knew they were happy and having a great visit. Definitely recommend!
My Springer, Jethro, spent the day with Helen, so I can't speak for an overnight or extended stay, but I was very pleased with her and her family. She truly seems to love dogs, and her children seemed very gentle with Jethro. I will definitely be taking Jethro there again!
Daisy & Corey, my cavalier king charles spaniels stayed with Helen and her family for 3 days and 2 nights. Helen was very attentive to their needs, getting them outside between periods of bad weather; allowing them on furniture, laps and sleeping in bed. I will definitely use Helen's "Hunt Pet B&B" in the future. It is a lovely home with a fully fenced yard and children who were very loving and caring with the dogs.
Helen and her family are wonderful and took great care of our dog during a long vacation! We had only boarded him twice before and were nervous about finding a good place for him while we were away. We had nothing to worry about though. She provided updates and photos for us often. It was clear he was very relaxed there and received a lot of love and attention during his stay. It was a huge relief to know someone responsible and caring was looking after him. We are so glad we found her and will definitely use her again in the future!
