About April

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a stay-at-home mom homeschooling my son. I have lived with and loved animals my whole life. As a child, I grew up with three dogs; Reno, Midnight and Ginger. Ginger was a medium sized, mixed breed dog and Reno and Midnight were Dobermans. I believe that was the start of my love for animals. I have owned dogs, cats, birds and fish. My close friend has two smaller dogs that I have dog sat for at her home while she was on vacation for a week. She was very happy to have me do it again this year. I've also watched my mom's Doberman, Max, while she was in the hospital and rehab for several weeks. I would go over and play with him, walk him and feed him. In fact, Max had to be re-homed last November and we drive to St. Pete from Lakewood Ranch to see him every few months. Where we currently live we can not have animals, so I stop and pet almost every dog I see outside our home. I love animals and I know that I would want someone trustworthy and reliable and someone with a real love for animals to take care of mine. That's the service I'd love to provide to other animal lovers.

April would be an asset to any job applied for. However working with animals is an additional plus. She has grown up with them all her life and has as plenty of experience. Shes loyal,dependable and a Pleasure to work with.

April is a lovely lady and followed through on her commitment to visit our little Maltese twice during a day when we were away. She walked Tiki and played and cuddled with her and sent texts with pictures so we had peace of mind knowing she was being well looked after. Tiki was relaxed and happy when we arrived home. Thank you, April.

April is very good with my puppy. She comes to walk her each workday. I appreciate her communication on her visits and the pictures she sends. I will use her again.
