I am Helen, and I am a passionate and caring Dog-Lover with over 25 years experience. I no longer have a dog of my own, as we lost Memphis two-years ago. I am Fully '5***** Rated' licensed with the East Riding Yorkshire Council, and have full liability insurance.
Detached Home With A Warm Loving Welcome... (just like a 'home from home experience'). A secured large private fenced garden that is covered with CCTV cameras and additional security lighting for the darker months. Also, you might see my red pet-mobile running around town. If required, I can come to collect as I have a pick-up service (As Seen In The Picture). When it comes to your 'best-friends holiday' I am not' doggy ageist' so all are welcome.
All "Visitors" are guaranteed two walks a day. However, when you bring your four-legged friends to "Meet and Greet" you will be advised to bring an itinerary with you when you drop your pooches off to stay. This will include, walk times, diet, toys, sleeping/bedding, treats, and medication, etc. (As per any medical treatment, if your dog has an underlying medical condition, this needs to be discussed and for me to be advised to their needs, and a declaration signed by both parties). At the "Meet and Greet" all forms and any declarations will be completed, and this includes: Next of Kin; Veterinary Authorisations; and Communications in your absence; ie Skype, TXT, Email.
Health & Hygiene:
All "Visitors" MUST have an up to date vaccine certificate, flea/worm treatment and registered with a local veterinary surgery, and in addition be micro-chipped. No "Visitors" will be allowed to stay, if these requirements are not met, as all the "Visitors" are treated equally and loved the same.

Thank you so much Helen and Darren for looking after Herbie last weekend.
It was such a relief to know how well he was being looked after, and we were kept updated with lovely pictures and messages.
Thanks again Helen, Herbie can't wait to come and stay again! XX

We met Helen this morning on a walk with our pup Woody. She was walking a beautiful Labrador and allowed our pup to play with him. Helen was really lovely and knowledgeable and we wouldn't hesitate to use her services to care for our precious pooch!

What a lovely holiday Cole had with Helen, she was in touch daily with photographs and updates of him on his adventures. This was very reassuring as Cole is a 14 week old puppy. I would recommend Helen to everyone she is very knowledgable, understanding and nothing is too much for her. Thank you so much for looking after our boy! Jo

Helen is very caring, a true dog lover.
She looked after Bumble our Springer Spaniel puppy when he was very poorly. Helen and Darren took him to the vets several times and kept us up to date with his progress whilst we were on holiday. We definitely recommend Helen. Thank you. Jill and Ian

Buddy thoroughly enjoyed his stay and he looks forward to his next sleep over. Helen always makes sure your dog is looked after to the highest standard, a home from home for your dog. Highly recommended

Helen looked after my two dogs Eli & Wilbur, they had a lovely time & I will have no concerns when they stay again for my summer holiday.
From Amanda Fuller on
My elderly labrador Gunner suffered a stroke last February so was a little anxious about leaving him, whilst we went on holiday 3 weeks ago. Helen was great she sent me pictures of him on her walks and whilst he was sleeping. That little touch of kindness meant a lot. Helen is a kind and caring person and I would highly recommend her. Gunner loved his stay. Helen Oct 2018

I have been using Helen's dog sitting service for many years now. I have a very active Springer who needs lots of excercise. Helen never fails at giving me back a very happy tired dog when I return back from my holidays. I cannot recommend Helen highly enough. Me and saphie are 100% happy

Mums 3 Lhasa apsos stayed with Helen for the weekend and when they returned for another stay they were so excited and happy to see her. Would highly recommend

Helen and Darren offer a wonderful caring loving holiday home for our Bedington Terrier, she loves staying with them and I feel extremely reassured that she is looked after as though she was their own dog. Highly recommended.

Lulu absolutely adores Helen & Darren - can't get there fast enough when she is visiting . We have complete peace of mind when Lulu is with Helen . I think dogs love Helen because she really cares for & about them , & has an impressive knowledge of doggy matters.
From Liz on
Well where do I start.
Helenâ€™s passion and love of dogs is endless
I have had Afghan Hounds for over 40years and never found anywhere I have felt comfortable leaving them when the need has arisen, that is until a friend recommended Helen.
It is a home from home at Helenâ€™s and Lottie and Gulliver love it.
We still miss them when we are away but know they are in safe hands.

We have been leaving our dogs with Helen & Darren for quite a number of years now and have nothing but praise
for the way they are looked after, If your dogs gets a mid morning slice of toast with marmalade at home, then thats what they will get at Helen's ( just an example ) of the lengths they will go to ,to make your pets feel at home. Our dogs sometimes seem to have a better holiday than us.
From Ian & Christine on
I have two spaniels and they have stayed with Helen over this last year. They both love visiting Helen and rush in the house at top speed!! I know they are going to be well looked after with care and attention, lots of walks, and lots of love from Helen, which gives you peace of mind whilst on holiday. Her house is "dog friendly" and she looks after the dogs as if they were her own. I would have no hesitation in highly recommend her.
From Debra Deighton on
Helen and her husband were absolutely brilliant with my dog. Lovely home, I felt that my dog was safe and properly looked after. Really recommend!
From Georgie Samuels on
We can't praise Helen enough for what she does she is fantastic with our dogs Betty & Beau they love going there and are so happy to be left. She treats them like we do at home and is always taking them on lovely walks. I'm so glad we've found her it's great going away knowing they are in such safe hands and are being so well looked after. Can highly recommend to anybody wanting to leave there dogs in such a safe and loving environment.
My Parson Russel terrier loves Helen. As soon as we arrive at her house he cannot wait to meet her! Helen is kind, caring and passionate when it comes to the care of our dog, going out of her way to make the stay as easy as possible. I have used her for the past 2 years, and I highly recommend her.
From WHC on
We found Helen through a recommendation from a friend and so pleased that we found this lovely caring person to look after Polly (our Pointer). We found her professional and dedicated to Polly. Due to her pleasant nature and commitment, and knowing that Polly is loved and secure, we now book Polly in with Helen before we book our own holidays, to avoid Polly going somewhere else. For the last couple of years, we have been able to go away, knowing that our little lady is having a great holiday too.
