About April

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! We are Jonathon and Renny, newlyweds and dog lovers! We don't have any dogs of our own right now but would love to hang out with and love on yours!

I'm Renny! I am a Nanny for a local family. In addition to caring for their sweet baby, I also look after their Yorkie, Zoe everyday! I also had 2 dogs growing up, a Shih Tzu and a Belgian Malinois! Before we were married, Jon had a roommate with a super sweet Pitbull-Lab Mix, Duke, that he helped care for for 2 years. We have both always had pets and love animals! You can find photos of the pets we have had or cared for in our photo gallery, as well as testimonials and recommendations by their parents in the references!

Jon and I have 2 female cats, Gypsy and Alina, who are friendly and good with other animals. Our friends bring their pets over often and we have never had a problem on our end! If for some reason your fur baby isn't too fond of ours, that's okay! The girls are perfectly content downstairs in their kitty suite/our finished basement! :)

My hubby is a paramedic for Central EMS and is fortunate to have a rotating shift that allows him to work one week and be off the next. We schedule most boardings every other week while Jon is off so that your dog never goes unsupervised. This is for their safety and so that they don't get lonely. Our house is on a main street, not in a neighborhood, and does not have a fence. Pups are not allowed outside without a leash. "But Renny, how do they play and run and get out energy?" We live about a half mile from Kennesaw Mountain and visit there several times a week to run and hike the trails. We also live 12 minutes from Lewis Park, an off-leash dog park for exercise and socialization. If you are comfortable with your dog being around others, we are happy to hit up Lewis Park as well. We want your dog to be as happy, healthy and comfortable as possible while staying with us. We are a very active couple and can keep up with a high energy pup. If your dog is older or more laid back or let's face it, just not feeling a run that day, we can adjust and do a slow walk or just enjoy a relaxing day of play at home.

If you use a crate or anything special for your dog, please bring it (or have us pick it up) but know it isn't necessary! Pups are free to sit, play and sleep wherever they like! Also, being a nanny, I am used to keeping a daily log and sending mom and dad lots of pictures throughout the day. We will do the same for you with your fur baby! Jon and I are really excited to get to know you and your best friend. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns so that we can make sure your dog receives the best care and is comfortable while you are away.

I have had the privilege of seeing April interact with all animals. April is a wonderful and trustworthy person. She is sweet and loving; she has so much compassion for many different animals. I used to have cats of my own and when she came around she just treated them as if they were her own, she played with them and she genuinely cared for them. I believe she is the best person for this job. So if you are looking for a person to care and spend quality time with your animal than Aprils that person.
