"I have a very difficult dog, with major anxiety issues. He does not do well in kennels so I had opted to leave him at home while on vacation, and wanted someone to come into my house to walk him and spend time with him.
April Schumacher exceeded my expectations in every way. While I was on vacation she sent me texts with pictures and updated me daily, since she knew that I had anxiety over leaving my dog. She left daily notes that I was able to review upon my return.
April also brought my mail and newspapers in, and had offered to water plants and turn lights on while I was gone. She spent a whole hour with my dog for each visit. The weather was super hot and my dog was not wanting to walk much during the afternoon visit. She noticed that he kept going by her car and sniffing around so she asked him if he wanted to go for a ride. I hadn't told her how much he loves car rides. That became their routine in the afternoon - a short walk, a ride in the car, and then chilling or playing in the house.
April is a true animal lover and devotes her life to rescuing animals and taking care of animals. She even donates money to an organization that feeds animals, based upon how many miles she walks dogs.
April was kind and professional in every way and I highly recommend using her services. She loves your animal and treats your animal as her own. After communicating with her on my first day of vacation, I could relax, knowing that my dog was in good hands. Because of my confidence in April, I had peace of mind and was able to enjoy my time away from home.
If you want to ask me anything about this review, please contact April for my email address and I will be happy to answer any questions."
