Helen has shared her life with a variety of dogs since 2 years of age, including a Border Collie, Keeshond, Brittany, a couple of cross breeds and many Basenjis and several cats. She has also owned and bred goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, ducks, chinese silkies, love birds, cockatiels, finches and budgies. Thanks to this background and practical hands on experience she is comfortable handling many different kinds of pets. She also has a keen interest in natural health alternatives and species appropriate diets, believing that the food we feed to our pets is the basis of good health and makes a big difference to their health and well being, thus saving us time and money on visits to the vet. After all, we are what we eat and the same goes for our dogs and cats too!
Helen also has a current Police Check.
Together with her husband, she has bred and exhibited pure bred dogs for over 25 years. They have exported Basenji puppies and semen from their dogs around the world and are very proud that their dogs feature behind the pedigrees of so many beautiful show dogs and beloved family members. She has been a member of Dogs Victoria for over 25 years.
An understanding of canine anatomy and correct movement necessary for successful breeding has allowed Helen to have an indepth understanding of canine anatomy and how it relates to structure, movement and health.
“I've been a huge dog and animal lover for as long as I can remember!
I'm passionate about helping animals feel better and live better using holistic, natural therapies, which address the whole body instead of just masking symptoms.
I'm very proud of the many positive results that have been achieved as seen on my TESTIMONIALS PAGE and the smiles and licks of appreciation that I receive from the animals I help absolutely make it all worthwhile.
Massive thanks to all the wonderful people who have shared their beautiful pets with me over the years!” - Helen Veless
