April was great with my dog and at keeping me informed on there activities. I know my dog was happy too as she told me of all his willingness to cuddle with her. Going out of town is less stressful knowing that your loved ones are in good hands.

Musubi had a great time with April and her husband Danny! April was very flexible with pick up and drop off, very receptive to our instructions and follow up regarding Musubi's care, and she was thorough with picture and text updates of Musubi's stay! I could tell they both loved Musubi like their own and had complete peace of mind leaving Musubi with them for the evening. Would definitely book with them again!

April was great! We booked last minute with an early am drop off and late pm pick up and she was so accomodating! She sent us photos with updates during Nina's stay which put us at ease. They spend a lot of time on walks and in the backyard playing, Nina came home a happy, tired dog. We will be booking with April and her husband again. :)

Caring & Nurturing Animal Lover

I grew up with pets: dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs -- even the occasional chicken! I love all animals with a passion, especially dogs! :)

For many years, my next door neighbor offered me the opportunity to care for her dog and cat when she was away, and always trusted me with that responsibility until sadly she passed away.

Back when I moved away from home for the first time, the first thing I missed was having ...

What April would like to know about your dog

Please note: For dogs over 40 lb. I prefer to do a meet & greet before accepting a booking, unless I have successfully watched your dog in the past. Thank you.

I would like to know the breed, age, gender, and distinct preferences of the dog(s). Also, just a backstory as an example: my previous dog had been abused before we rescued her, and was very sensitive about having the lower part of her back petted, and would even growl if someone touched her there. So please let me know if your dog has any strong/sensitive preferences that will make him/her become aggressive, scared, etc. Additionally, I would love to know what makes your dog happy. What can I do to make your pup comfortable? Just fill me in!

When April watches your pet

My husband and I live in Albany Park, in the last building at the end of a dead end street that opens up into a large park. We also have a small fenced-in backyard where I can take your dog off-leash to play fetch or sniff around! Personally, I am a huge nature person, and I welcome any opportunity to spend more time outdoors. I know that dogs feel the same way! The last dog I had for 10+ years LOVED playing ball/fetch, so this is not something new to me! I would be more than happy to play with your dog endlessly until he/she tires out. :) Of course, I will be there for snuggles, too, if your dog enjoys it!
