About April

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Pick up and drop off specials available for multiple dogs or extended stay. Message me for details. I love animals and would love to take care of yours. I live on almost a acre of mature property with lots of shade. There is a swimming creek outside of my fenced area where dogs can cool off in the hot summer months. It will be a vacation for your pooch :). If needed I do offer pet massage for the seniors or high anxiety animals to help ease stress. I've worked with local shelters and fostered a blind border collie for almost a year so I can handle any special needs. This home is about 2100sf and all one level so those pets that struggle with stairs it's no a issue in my home. I take last minute reservations!

April was great! Our dogs didn't even miss us and were worn out when we took them home! She was very sweet to our dogs and sent us pictures! I would definitely recommend her and let our dogs stay again!
excellent place for my labs
This was my puppy's first time away form home and he didn't miss me a bit! He had a blast at April's house playing with another young dog she was watching even thought that dog was huge compared to Max. It was great they wore each other out. Only problem is now that Max is home he is missing all his new friends. Good thing he will be back to see April soon!

April did a wonderful job taking care of my dog, on a very short notice as well. She was attentive to his needs, gave him lots of affection, and provided updates through pictures, video, and text regularly. I could see that my dog was healthy, happy, and thriving while I was away. I was able to be at peace on vacation knowing my dog was well taken care of by a genuine individual.

Our 2 dogs stayed with April while we want on vacation. April sent us photos and updates while we were gone. They seemed to enjoy their time with her and her two dogs. We will definitely use April again for our next vacation
Jack did great with April. I appreciated the video and picture updates. It made me feel more at ease to know he was part of a family!
April is the best. She made our dogs feel so welcome. I'd recommend her over the "doggy jails" (kennels) around town.
We used the service as daycare, picking our dog up and dropping her off daily. April displayed a calm temperament beneficial for a dog's first experience with a stranger. She was prompt in replying to text messages. She was flexible in drop off/pick up schedule. Our dog, for whom this was a first out-of-home experience, seemed 'happy' to return to April's every morning (she did not cling to us when we left).

April was amazing, easily reachable and stayed in contact throughout our dog's 10 day stay. Photos, texts, videos were all so reassuring. We felt more than comfortable leaving our dog with her. April's yard was perfect and the creek running through the property was a huge plus, not to mention the new, perfect dog park a few miles away. I wasn't sure if Chama was going to leave with me as she was so happy and well taken care of. She actually turned around, walked back to April to give her kisses as if she was thanking her!!! Highly recommend!!!

April is awesome! We're so happy to have found her as our pet sitter. We know our pets are in good hands with April. She was communicative and even intuitively asked all the right questions about our concerns before we brought them up. We would highly recommend April and will definitely have her watch our pets again!!

April is awesome! She took such great care of our pets and our house on short notice. We have already booked her for another trip and can't wait for her to care for them again. I have no worries when she watches them and greatly appreciate her check ins! Highly recommend her to anyone!!

Our dog, Mosely, had a great stay with April! We were nervous about leaving Mosely somewhere new for the first time, but we had nothing to worry about. Mosely was comfortable with April and the other dogs at her home right away. April shared photos and videos of Mosely's stay while we were gone - it was great to see how much fun she was having! We would highly recommend April to other dog owners.

I am so happy I found April! She did such a wonderful job taking care of my dogs. I loved that they received more personalized care and were able to be in a home setting compared to a dog boarding facility. I would recommend her to all my friends and family.

Loved April and her family! My dogs had a great time and I felt that they were well taken care of with lots of pictures throughout their stay to give me peace of mind! She has a great back yard and access to a creek that the dogs could cool off in. In addition, she took them to a dog park which I am sure they loved (as they have never been to one before). Even with all of my "special and unique" circumstances in regards to my dogs she rolled with it and treated them just as I do at home! HIGHLY RECOMMEND April B!

April was great and updated us often with pictures. Will definitely use her again!
I am real particular when it comes to any of my animals so I choose 3 Dogvacy people to have a meet and greet with. My Pup is a 9 month old Huskie/Sheltie mix so very active. We met April and she was so helpful as she has big dogs it was a match made in heaven. If you ever need a big dog person April is the one you should choose. My pup is not a small dog person so this worked out really well, I felt she was safe and had so much fun. I won't go to anyone else unless April is booked when I need a dog sitter!

We were really nervous about leaving our pups with a stranger for the first time, but after this it's a no brainier! April was fantastic and we will definitely use her again!
April accommodated my time schedule great. My dog was very well cared for and April sent me pictures of his sleeping accommodations. I will definitely use her services again if I am in the area.
We were very concerned about what we would do with our 9 week old boxer after our original plan fell thru. We had 3 days to find someone to watch him that would make us feel comfortable! We found April's information and contacted her and she responded quickly. We even did a Quick meet and great. Bruno seemed right at home. Her two other dogs welcomed him so we felt very comfortable leaving him there. After receiving pictures and video we had peace of mind he was a very happy pup! Will use her again no question!

Our dogs loved their weekend with April!! They came back happy and ready for extended nap afterwards.. Will be using April for all future bookings!!
April did a great job taking care of my dog. The second my dog walked in the door she seemed to feel at home. I would definetely recommend her to anyone needing boarding. ( I also got great pictures of her stay). Thanks for the great job!!!!!
The bes that I've found so far. She took excellent care of my dogs and had the perfect location for a couple of labs - big yard, water and lots of attention. She sent me pictures of them enjoying themselves while I was gone. I will be using her everytime I need to board them.
