Hi, I’m Helena, I'm the owner & operator of The Purrfect Pup. I've always had a passion for animals! I have my own dog named Star and foster kitten, Flame. I’m a Lane Cove Local and love taking Star to the local dog parks, particularly Kingsford Smith, Blackmans and Tunks!
I’ve had years of experience working with animals and am currently working on my Cert III in Animal Studies and volunteer at the local vets. I currently work with Furry Munchkins Pet Photography as well! I also worked as the shop manager at Oliver Barkley pet supply, a local pet shop. I have a police check and pet first aid certification.
I've regularly minded dogs and puppies as young as 8 wks and I love to see how different their personalities are even when they’re just a few months old! Every dog I’ve worked with is unique and has their own quirks and challenges!
My passion for animals isn’t limited to dogs and I've recently started to foster kittens! I've also had experience with other small animals. I had a gorgeous cockatiel named Sunshine who sadly passed in 2020.
This is my dog Star, a gorgeous 5-year-old Cavoodle! She's definitely a lap dog and loves nothing more than to snuggle up right next to me at night!
She loves to run and meet other pups. She's a great little agility dog and does the whole circuit at Blackmans Park!
Recently I’ve taken a great interest in dog photography so I’m constantly exploring new and interesting dog-friendly locations throughout Sydney! If you’d like to follow Star’s adventures throughout Sydney, check out her Instagram @Starthecavoodle
This is Flame! He was my first foster kitten! He was 5wks old when we first got him and was found abandoned on a driveway under a car.
Despite his traumatic beginning, he's a little spitfire! (hence his name!) He's a very confident kitten and absolutely loved to play with Star! He particularly loved to dart out and pounce on Stars' tail!
He was such a special kitten and I can't wait to watch him grow into a beautiful cat.
