About helene

Hey, my name is Helene!

I am a student at vic studying software engineering but more importantly, I am the kind of person who's always asking to pet your dog or stopping to pat the cat across the road.

Why Me?

- Local assistant dog trainer

- Have volunteered with SPCA since 2018 Volunteered with the Kitten Inn before that

- Experienced pet carer

- As a student, I can be available during the day

- Willing to come and have an obligation-free meet and greet with you

- will send regular photo updates so you know that your four-legged family member is having the best time

Dog Walking

Where the walks are will depend on where you are located but I always appreciate venturing onto one of the beautiful walks that we have available to us.

When I take your dog out on a walk, the purpose of the walk is not to walk as far or as fast as we can but rather to let the dog get the exercise and mental stimulation that they need.

I am also more then happy to just spend some time socializing your dog/s instead if they do not need walking.

Being familiar with positive reinforcement techniques from the SPCA and working as an assistant dog trainer, I can help to re-enforce the prefered behaviours.

Have experience with dogs of different ages, breeds, sizes and personalities both from Pawshake and the SPCA.

I have also walked numerous dogs which deal with behavioural problems, if this is the case for your dog I will try to avoid stressful situations and were not possible to do so, distract the dog.

House sitting

This is a great option as kennels and catteries often lead to unnecessary stress for the pets.

I have experience with this and will make sure to prioritise your pet and their wellbeing during my stay.

I will not be able to stay with your pet all day but I definitely can walk your fur-baby everyday and give them plenty of cuddles. As well as take care of your property and leave it in a tidy state.

Please note: I currently only accept bookings within the western suburbs (I.e. Wilton, Wadestown, Northland, Karori, Kelburn and Thorndon)

Helene is an excellent sitter and I highly recommend her and would use her services any time again. She is punctual, professional and caring. Thank you Helene for taking such good care of our two senior citizens.
