About April
Hi! I relocated to Melbourne with my partner this January. I've worked for the equivalent of this app in the States (Rover.com) for 3 years, and have been caring for foster dogs and volunteering at shelters for over 10 years. When your dog is in my care there will be no lack of walks, fetch, playtime, and cuddles. I’ll take cute photos to send you and keep you updated on our fun. No pets of my own at home.

**** I've been getting loads of requests, thank you! I work weekends and will only be able to take on dogs that will be quiet when left in my apartment for a few hours and have good leash manners ****

I have cared for over 18 foster dogs, including dogs who come from abusive pasts and newborn puppies. I’ve volunteered 200+ hours at an animal shelter/hospital in South Africa when I was living there at the close of 2018. There I was in the clinic assisting vets, left in charge of the puppy/new mother block and helped rehabilitate dogs who had never lived inside of a home.
I know how to read dogs and feel very comfortable around all sizes. I love being active as well. I play games with the dog, give him/her lots of love, and get outside all of the time.
I'm looking to help you - I'm flexible and willing to lend a hand however I can, just send me a message!

@ your place: I would like to know how I can keep your pet and your home safe while you are away. Will your dog trust me when I enter the home without you? I keep your dog at my side when we are out of the house, I prefer no-contact walks in general for everyone’s safety and enjoyment.

April did an awesome job looking after little Rambo, got lots of happy pics of them on walks when I was away, 10/10.

April is such a delight. Clearly she loves dogs, providing regular updates of Kevin’s stay, including photos. We could not recommend April highly enough - just a pleasure knowing our dog was so well cared for. Communication was courteous, prompt and relevant. 5-Stars
