About helene

House sitting

Wether it's just hanging out with your pets and stay with them pets overnight. This is a great option as kennels and catteries oftern lead to unnecassary stress for the pets.

I have lots of experience with this and make sure to prioritise your pet and their wellbeing. I will not be able to stay with your pet all day, as I have to attend Lectures. However I am willing to go above and beyond to make sure that my service is worthwhile to you, therefore I have provided a list of ways I could help while you are away.

  • Giving any animals some one-on-one attention
  • Cleaning up after them
  • Filling up food and replacing water bowls
  • Watering plants
  • Bringing in mail

Helene did a great job looking after the 3 dogs, which is a busy job with such active dogs.

She was happy to put the dogs in her car and take them to the dog park and off the beaten track, so that they got some good exercise.

Nothing seemed to be a problem; Helene rescued the day and went to the pet shop for us, when our food order wasn't delivered.

Communication was great and the house was immaculate when we returned - Thanks Helene
