April was amazing with my overly needy cane Corso rescue. We were on the brink of having to cancel our family vacation after a failed test leaving him at home. I have no doubt that my dog was well cared for. My dog was badly abused when we first adopted him and now suffers with some pretty severe anxiety. However, he quickly warmed up to April and her family.

April was absolutely amazing. When I first met her I immediately felt comfortable with her. My dogs, Hurley and Charlie fell in love with her. Our cat, Osha got use to her while she stayed in our home while we went on vacation. She sent me so many cute pictures while she was there. From the pictures I think my furbabies didn't miss me!
After our meet and greet, and the day of us leaving ...

Dog Trainer with Tons of Experience

Hello! My name is April and I have been working with animals in one capacity or another for almost 20 years! I love dogs! Dogs are my entire life! I will care for your pet in the same stellar way that I care for mine with an attention to the specific pet's likes and needs. Not all dogs are the same, and I pride myself on adjusting my "parenting" style to fit each and every ...

What April would like to know about your dog

I do not have breed preferences however I do love the large breeds! I would prefer that any animals that stay here are well socialized, house trained and crate trained (puppies being an exception). However, I am able to separate animals if necessary and am willing to discuss any special situations with you at any time! I have a soft spot for seniors and have the medical training to care for special needs dogs as well.

When April watches your pet

We live in a fairly rural area of Suffolk so we have lots of space that we own. In addition, I love taking the dogs on long walks around the neighborhood and at the local state park. My dogs are trained to the "walky dog" and enjoy going for bike rides. (Except Kairos, he's lazy!) We have a large fenced in area and an additional acre un-fenced for the dogs to romp and play.
