Introduction: Hi, I'm Helen Castillo. I'm in my 30's and I have been professionally pet sitting since the year 2002. I have experience with all types of dogs and have dedicated my life to volunteering in animals rescues to help dogs in need. I only believe in training dogs using positive reinforcement. In my home we love to have doggy guests!! We provide reasonable rates, and in most cases less than the cost of boarding at a nice facility. When staying with us I can assure you they will have so much fun here, and lots more one-on-one cuddle and playtime. OUR FAMILY: We are a family of 7. I have a fun-loving daughter who loves dogs just as much as I do! She is very sweet and gentle with our house guest. We have three adorable dogs under 18lbs (Daisy, Lucy and Stella), and two adorable cats (Sonny and Nena) who are very sweet and loving. We have a completely enclosed backyard where they can run and play under my supervision. We have a beautiful deck where they can bask in the sun. I can't wait to meet you and your pup!! Interested in booking with me? Please Read This Very Important Information Below: *** We are not able to keep dogs with signs of aggression in our home. Your pup must be up-to-date on all vet-recommended vaccines, and be free of fleas and ticks, and cannot have any contagious illnesses including kennel cough and intestinal parasites. This is very important, and thank you for understanding. CONTACT ME TO SET UP A MEET 'N GREET: I look forward to meeting you! ONCE YOU BOOK: When you drop off your pup, please bring a note with any detailed feeding/medicine instructions, and other details you want me to know. Also I'd like to have a local emergency contact (relative/friend who loves your pet), and vet information. Please bring food and any special treats. There are plenty of toys, and food/water bowls here, so no need to bring these items. If they have a special bed that they love, feel free to pack it. If your pup has separation anxiety, it may be helpful to pack a piece of clothing or sheet that has your scent and the scent of your home. Thank you for taking the time to read all about Your Dog's Favorite Vacation Spot!

Pet Boarding

Helen did an amazing job taking care of my pup. I love that she had a huge backyard for my puppy to roam. She gave me daily photos and updates on my puppy and I really appreciated it. I will definitely be using her every time I need to board my puppy. Helen is friendly, personable and an absolute delight

Helen and her family cared/loved on my baby (6 month old Shorkie) for a week. From my initial inquiry all the way to pickup (and after), Helen made me and my family feel very comfortable. She is very responsive and possess great communication. The minute she and my puppy met, they both fell in love. Over a duration of 7 days I spoke with Helen multiple times for she made sure to check in and send updates such as pictures and videos each day. She was there to answer every question I had about my little Princess while we were away. My dog seemed so happy; being that she was getting plenty of outdoor time, daily family activities, and plenty of cuddles and hugs from Helen and her entire family (especially her daughter)! Helen has also given me so much advice on training and health tips for my sweet little baby! I almost forgot to mention, Princess made a lot of new friends as well! Thanks again Helen! We’ll see you soon!

This was our first time sending our pup to stay with Helen and we were thrilled with the whole experience! I loved getting daily updates with photos and videos. It was comforting knowing our dog had so much fun and was well loved while we were away. I’ll be referring friends and booking with Helen again!

Helen is awesome! She is very affordable.From the meet and greet to the end of the trip I was comfortable with her keeping Deuce. I can tell she loves what she do. The environment for the dogs is so welcoming. Deuce warmed up to her and her family very quickly. She’s able to keep your dog on the same schedule that they’re already on. I especially loved the puppy check ins. It was pictures and nice messages about what your dog was doing. Deuce will definitely be back for more stays to come. Thank you for caring for Deuce, as I would.

Helen was excellent. She provided daily updates for my pup, and was very responsive. I loved the fact that her environment was so warm and inviting. I will definitely use her again. I feel my pup actually came back a little calmer :)
