About April

Want your furbaby loved and pampered? I am the person for you! I have 6 of my own, plus our daughter and son-in-law, who live with us, have 3, although 1 goes out on the truck with our son-in-law since he is a truck driver. I cannot imagine my life without my babies. I do homemade doggie treats, and some store bought, but I am VERY particular about store bought. I love babying my furbabies and well, to be honest, they are my kids and they have free run of the house. I do not kennel my dogs, but will do with yours whatever you say they are used to. If they sleep in bed with you, then they will fit right in with mine. If you want them fed at a certain time, you let me know. Your wish is my command!

I also am great with elderly and disabled pets, I have 3 elderly and they all have some disabilities. 1 has no teeth at all, 1 only has part of his teeth, and 1 is blind in one eye and going deaf. Our first baby, Darla, was blind, deaf and her teeth were worn down to the nubs and she had some serious health issues, we had to lay her to rest on Aug. 1, 2014..it was the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I know she isn't in pain anymore and she can hear and see again and eat and run and play.

The last 5 we took in were taken in due to a rescue...the owner, a man that works with my husband in the military, had no choice to but to rehome 5 of his babies since he needed a service dog. It was either we take them all or they were separated, as if being taken from the home they knew was not bad enough, or they went to a shelter...I could not bear that thought, so...well, we took on 5 more babies...but, we will make it work seeing as how my daughter took on 3 of those 5 for her little family.

Your baby(ies) will have plenty of play time, indoors and outdoors. We have toys they can play with at their leisure, as well. If you have a special request or a special diet, please let me know so that I can make absolute sure that it is followed. On dry days, we can take walks around the block or visit the dog park. If you are concerned about separation anxiety, as I am with mine, feel free to bring an item that has your scent on it so that we can make sure your baby(ies) can feel and smell you around them. We don't want any baby feeling abandoned or frightened at any time. This is their little vacation and it should be fun and calm.

I will also provide updated pictures and how they are doing for you while you are away! I know that always helps me when I have to leave mine.

I am flexible and I understand that things happen that are out of our control. Make sure to call me should something happen and we can discuss a course of action to help you in that situation!!!

So, sit back, relax and know that your baby(ies) is/are in a loving environment and will be well cared for and loved in your absence!

We've used April three times in the last few months and each time we've been impressed at how well she's taken care of our dog and how flexible she has been. She went the extra mile during this last stay when we forgot to pack our dog's food by feeding our dog. We offered to go buy some dog food but she insisted. We highly recommend her.

My dog was well taken care of and April was flexible when we had to pick her up later then orignally planned. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again.
