About helen

Two years ago, I had to make the very painful decision to send my 18 year old, arthritic, Lurcher/Wolfhound, Mr P, to sleep in greener pastures (he's the adorably scruffy mutt in most of my pics on here!). Up until that point, I've had dogs - and cats - since I was a small child. I've also had experience with Pit Bulls, English Bull Terriers, Labradors, Ridgebacks, Rottwielers. Basically, all manner of breeds, shapes, sizes and temperaments.

I live in Greenwich Village, with my photographer husband, and I work predominantly from home - I'm a photography producer, writer, and on-line gallery curator. So I'll always be around to take care of, walk, play with, and fuss over your dog...as if it were my own. In fact, your dog will never be more loved - aside from by you, that is!

Please note: for 24 hour boarding the fee would be $80 - i.e. from 10am Mon -10am Tues. If boarding is 3 days and over, the rate drops to $65 per 24 hour care.

I live very close to Washington Square Park and not too far from the Hudson Parkway. And, I love to walk, so if your dog really loves to walk too, we'll be a winning team! However, if your dog is the kind that doesn't, or is unable, to walk far, then that's totally fine too. Each dog has it's own personality and individual needs - which is what makes them so special - and, given initial direction from you, along with spending time with your pet, I can cater to each animals personal nuances.

Whether it's dog-sitting or walking your dog, be assured that you can relax and enjoy your workday, vacation, and/or dinner date. And, I'll send you some great photos!

Simply put: I love dogs...and it seems to work both ways. I'm more than happy to meet with you and, of course, your dog before your first booking, so that we can see how it'll work out.

Thank you for checking out my profile. Please feel free to ask me any questions.

Helen and Jason were awesome!!!! They took my puppy Zoey with very short notice and were great with her in every way. Helen sent me pictures and updates constantly, I even got letters "from" Zoey :) They took her to the park daily and for long walks. Helen and Jason are true animal lovers and saved my trip with being so sweet and wonderful with Zoey. I am definitely leaving Zoey with them next time I leave town if they are free. Have a wonderful trip and thank you once again. Best Sara and big kiss/lick from Zoey :)
Helen was amazing!
She is gentle, and caring and took care of Puzzles as if he were her own.
Helen stayed at our house and played, cuddled, and connected - both felt completely comfortable together.
I would not hesitate to leave him with her any where!
