This was a late extension to a previously booked stay, and April was very accommodating to the change and great with Franklin as per usual.

April was great! She was very responsive and attentive to Franklin's special needs and he was happy and healthy after our 5 nights away. She kept in constant communication with lots of updates and pictures.

About April

With me, your dog is family! :)

Before I left for college, I'd never known what life was like without pets-my earliest memories are running around our yard with our three dogs, and learning how to care for them as I grew up and they grew older too!

We recently got an adorable new roommate, our little ball of fun and energy, Hero, who keeps us on our toes and laughing our hearts out, but even though we have our own puppy ...

What April would like to know about your dog

Our building has weight and breed restrictions, and many children who like to say hi to four legged friends, hence the preference for smaller sized dogs. Before I sit for you, I'd like to know what your dog's schedule is, as well as their dietary needs and any other special requirements to take note of. Please let me know if there are any routines or rules you would like us to reinforce and observe while your dog stays with us- e.g., we allow dogs to come up onto the couch for a cuddle while we all relax in front of the TV, but if you have a no furniture policy, we are more than happy to accommodate!

Please also bring along your dog's essentials while they stay with us: their favorite food and bowls (goes without saying!), their bed/crate, pee pads (-if they are still in training!) and a few toys and items from home that will keep them from missing you too much. :)

When April watches your pet

Both the east river and west river walking paths and parks at the lower end of Manhattan are within easy distance of our place, so we'll have plenty of options to choose from for our walks! Fetch and a good game of tug of war on a favorite chew toy are always on the table too.
