This was Tago's first time with April. He is elderly, on some meds, and a little slow. All went swimmingly...he came home happy and relaxed, a sure sign that his care was excellent. We like the setting at April's...lots of space and away from traffic, etc. Her updates were prompt and informative, something we very much appreciate. We will certainly leave him with April again!
Scout was very happy and well cared for at April's home. I will definitely use her again !
I cannot give enough praise for April and her family. April is extremely accommodating. While away I was sent pictures and updates on Cali's stay. It was clear from the pictures that Cali was treated as one of the family.

What more could you ask for?
likky stayed with april's family for 12 days and, as usual, LOVED IT! it is very easy to see how much april loves all animals. she has 2 dogs that likky likes and one cat likky likes. the whole family loves animals and that feeling comes through strongly. i am so happy for the love,caring,exercise,pictures, car rides(likky's favorite) and reports concerning likky. my girl is in such great hands when with april and family.
April provided a great atmosphere for our dog Breaker. She is warm and sociable and very caring. We felt very welcome from the moment we walked into the house. Her dogs are very special and Breaker had no problem adjusting. Her family is delightful and comfortable with animals.We have only positive thoughts and recommendations.
April sent pictures of Breaker, which was fun.
Absolutely a 5 star!
April is a great DogVacay host. Will definitely have her watch our pup again in the future. Thanks!
April was very nice and accommodating. I am sure my Gracie was well cared for. Thank you April and family!
I was very nervous about leaving my 6 month old
puppy (Lexi) for the first time until I met April. I felt very comfortable knowing Lexi was in Great hands!

Lexi enjoyed her visit and looked like she blended in with the family nicely.

I will not hesitate to leave Lexi with April again. April is the best!

Thanks April!!!!
A wonderful experience! April treated Bear like one of her own, and he loved exploring and playing on her huge property. He received lots of love and attention. He was a very happy puppy!!!!
"likky" spent 1-1/2 weeks with april and her family and she was so happy!!!!the pics april sent were so great and likky always had a BIG smiley face...and a floppy tongue meaning lots of exercise. she got lots of car rides (her favorite activity) and ball chasing. april has two sweet doggies and a kitty so that likky always had lots of furball company. also, likky came up with a medical issue and april drove all the way into wilmington from west chester to my vet to make sure likky got the proper care and medicine. april and family are so great as substitute parents that i will always use them.
April and her family gave Jack so much love apparently that his puppy energy came back for many days of play! When I got to the door, Jack did not recognize me for a minute. When he remembered who I was, he showed me that he wanted to play more. I highly recommend April! Thank you so much for taking such good care of Jack. You gave me the relaxation that I needed knowing that he was well cared for!
April was awesome from beginning to end! She was welcoming to not only me and my pup but my kids as well. At our meet & greet she was caring for other dogs. April knew each of their personalities and behaviors. She showed immediate warmth to our dog and us. April was professional, courteous and immediately put our hearts at rest that we had found the perfect place for our dog's vacation while we were away. I could not ask for more!
Another great stay with April for our Roxy. Her Annabelle even gave up her bed to Roxy while she stayed sweet is that! Highly recommend and will have Roxy stay again in the future. Thanks April!
April was very accommodating and great for Samson. He was very healthy and happy when we picked him up. Thank you
I am so grateful to April and her family (both canine and human) for being such gracious hosts to Libby during our recent long weekend away. It was wonderful knowing that Libby was having a great time running, playing, and even swimming with her new friends. It warmed my heart to see that they truly enjoyed being with her. Thanks April!
Roxy really enjoyed her stay with April and her family. Very much appreciate the personal care she received and will definitely ask April to watch Roxy in the future. Highly recommend!
Maccabee and Akiba were so happy to see April and her family again! My boys settled in right away. It is so comforting to know my boys are happy and well taken care of when i am away.
April's doggie resort was perfect. Samson fit in perfectly and he was a happy doggie when we arrived. Thank you so much.
My dog had a great experience at April's. Her family is great and gave our dog alot of attention. April is so accommodating and flexible. I would highly recommend her!
Another terrific stay! Jake is quite the happy doggy when he gets to vacation at the Tracys. Always lots of TLC and great pictures to keep us updated.
April and her family were excellent hosts! I felt very comfortable leaving my prized pup with her and her family. They have a huge back yard, two friendly (adorable) dogs, and plenty of kids to tire my pup out! April sent pics showing Ava having fun playing w a ball, and the entire experience was just A+

Thank you April!
April and her large family are all animal lovers. I highly recommend. John F W Chester
Perfect weekend! Jake was very very happy! We're all set for a long two week stay in June.
5 Star Stay. Jake was treated like one of their own. A great experience for the two nights and he'll be back for an extended stay later this month. Jake probably got more attention in April's home than he does our own :).
Beautiful setting. Relaxed, caring and very lovely hostess and family. A truly wonderful experience for both me and my dog, Teddy. I loved the thoughtful pictures and updates which put my mind at ease and would highly recommend April to all.
April and her family were loving host for our dog Lilly. I can tell she had a very active time because she slept for several hours when we got her home. We highly recommend April and her family. A very safe enviroment and plenty of room to run.
April and her family were wonderful! They made my Abby feel at home. She's never been happier. I will definitely book again.
