About April

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi and welcome to my Pup Sanctuary in South Eugene! I have been caring for dogs for over 20 years. I love all breeds, sizes and temperaments. I have a Golden Retriever named Lucy who will keep your dog company. She is a good natured girl and comforting host. My home has a good sized pet friendly fully fenced backyard that is perfect for your pups to lounge in while you are on vacation. Each Vacay day for your pup can include on-leash walks around the neighborhood plus unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime at home. I will supervise your pups 24x7 and provide transportation to a vet in case of pup emergency. I will provide the same love and attention to your family pet as I do my own.

Additional charge of $15 applies to pick up times past 12pm day after an overnight stay.

Can’t wait to meet you and your fur-babies!

April and Brett were great. They're super warm and friendly folks, and took on our shy, skittish dog with great care and expertise. They are our new go-to dogsitters.
April was great--she stayed in contact and clearly took very good care of my dog
April was great. I felt my dog was looked after and she came home tired.. So I'm sure she had a good time. Thanks April!
My dog Annie had a fantastic time at April and Brett's! April checked in with me daily and also sent photos. Their home is very inviting and dog friendly. I could feel the positive energy as soon as I walked in and was extremely comfortable after dropping Annie off. When I picked her up, it was very evident that she was happy and well cared for. I will definitely be using their services again in the future!
Once again April came thru for us. Chipper was very comfortable, and had a good time with Lucy, and we were not worried about him at all. When we were delayed on our return flight, there was no issue in extending his stay. Chipper will be returning!
April and her husband were lovely and reduced my stress level about leaving my boys. When I picked up my pups after their 2 night stay, they slept for the rest of the day from exhaustion from tons of play with April's golden. I would highly recommend April for pup-sitting needs (bonus- no cats!)
April and Bret were absolutely wonderful! My dog stayed with them and their pup for 10 days and so evidently got tons of playtime, exercise and love. I think it's safe to say we're both looking forward to a return visit to April's. Communication was great and April was super flexible when timing arrangements needed tweeked due to some travel delays. All in all a very enjoyable experience and I will certainly be booking with them again! Thanks April!
April and her husband were GREAT! Oliver had lots of fun and I don't think he was really ready to leave! I will definitely bring Oliver again.
Great communication from beginning to end. We received text updates and photos of our sweet girl while we were on our vacation. It gave us such peace of mind knowing she was happy and safe. We will be booking with April again without hesitation.
Our Louie had a great time with Lucy, and was thoroughly tired out after playing all day. April and Bret are great to work with -- we'll be back!
Our dog loved staying at April's. She was very easy to work with and was great about contacting me if there was a question. Our golden retriever thoroughly enjoyed playing with Lucy. We will definitely be back!
April and Brett were awesome! My dog was so happy there and they were very sweet and accommodating! Thank you!
Very flexible with our disorganized schedule and our dog always seems so happy to be there!
Very satisfying conscientious care.
Very friendly! My dog seemed relaxed and happy when I picked him up. Easy to arrange.....definitely recommend!
Fantastic all around! April was great with Chipper, and we could relax on our trip knowing he was in good hands. We highly recommend April, and will be back for sure!
Sweet Pea (our 11 year old Corgi)had a good time with April. She (my Corgi, not April) can be a bit nervous about new situations but I could tell things went well because she was so relaxed after I picked her up and came home. We will definitely be having Sweat Pea staying with April again!
What a great experience!
Thank you April for making Piper's first "sleepover" a huge success.
It made my hospital stay much easier and I know my husband's as well, because he didn't have to worry about her during the day while he was with me.
From the first moment Piper met Lucy, they were best friends and it was obvious that Piper was going to be comfortable with April and Lucy during her stay.
We will definitely be contacting April in the future whenever we need a safe, comfortable and loving place for Piper to be when we are away from home. A big PAWS up!!
Norine had a fabulous long weekend at April's house. She loved playing with Lucy, running in the back yard, and being pampered. Now she is exhausted with all the fun and looking forward to her next visit. She can't wait for the next sleepover.
I can always tell if my dog has had fun and was well cared for while I was away. My dog acted as if she was ready to stay longer. I could see that Tilly (our Aussie) had made new friends. I am comfortable knowing that my dog was well cared for while I was away. April did a great job! We will defiantly call on her in the future.
