I am a Canine First Aider, have a full DBS and am fully insured to walk up to six dogs but like to keep groups smaller. I only use force free / positive reinforcement methods with all of the dogs I get to interact with.
I've built a custom dog van: it has 4 spacious cages to limit stimulation whilst in transit and give your dog their own personal space. So spacious a St Bernard can comfortably fit in!
Your dog’s enjoyment and safety are my number one priority and as I walk in small groups, I have to make sure everyone gets on and has the best time! Some dogs just aren’t suited to social situations and need extra attention, I have a small number of spaces for solo walks - get in touch if thats what you're looking for and we can see if it fits!
My pick up/drop off times vary as I prioritise the allocated walking time, your dog gets the full one hour walk.
SERVICES AND FEES
1 hour long walk in Harrow’s many parks/woods. I switch it up on a regular basis to keep variety in your dog’s daily routine!
Each group is maximum six dogs and mixed to best suit each dogs social needs.
Each dog will be rinsed down and dried off before they head back home to await your arrival.
Treats will be given throughout the walk and include Beautiful Joes dehydrated liver, JR Pet Products, Dried Baltic Sprats, Arden Grange dried kibble, fresh veg.
We have lots of water breaks during our brief hot summers and a few scattered in our much longer wetter winters, to make sure your dog doesn’t drink up all the muddy puddles!
Collection/Drop off time varies. 2-2.5 hours allowance for walk and drop offs.

SOME HAPPY PUPS
Helen is the best thing you could possibly do for your dog! She is reliable, knowledgeable and is obsessed with dogs. We've used Hounds of Love ever since Hamish was a wee pup and he loves her. He always comes back from walks tired and happy and we know Hamish is in the best hands when he's with Helen. We also get photos of him throughout the day at work, which is an added extra. All hail Hounds of Love! Don't know what we'd do without it!
Helen is fantastic with my German Shepherd. My dog always comes back from walks happy and tired out!
I also receive regular pupdates about my dogs walk including adorable photos!
I couldn't recommend Helen more!
Helen is THE BEST dog walker we've had.
She's been amazing with Coco: a 3 years Springer Spaniel with lots of energy. We've had to work hard on Coco's training and Helen has been super supportive. She has also applied the recommended techniques which is key. It feels like we are a team.
We have no worries when leaving Coco with Helen as we know she takes such a good care of our baby.
I have a very nervous rescue. Helen is great with her and very patient. I don't feel confident to leave her with many people but she always goes very happily to Hounds Of Love. Helen has a great set up, with her van and a loving home the dog gang hang out in! She's a trooper so thanks from Kizz and me!
Hounds of Love is absolutely loved by our hound and us. Our pup always comes back well walked and happy and looking forward to her next trip out with the HOL gang! Absolutely 100% recommend
