I brought my dog here out of necessity and last minute decisions. I found the facility under a new manager by the name of April. She was wonderfully personable and knowledgeable about the proper care of dogs. Here is her biography from the website.
April McCormack will be the new operations manager of Airport Kennel Company Effective November 1, 2014.
April has a long history of working with and caring for animals. She developed her love for them growing up on a farm in West Virginia. Her first job was as a zookeeper for a North American Rehabilitation and Education zoo called Ogelbay Good Zoo.
Her professional career with animals began in the late 80's with her pursuit of a B.S. as a wildlife biologist at Lincoln Memorial University. She then moved to Ohio to finish her education at Hocking College.
Throughout her life she has worked for several veterinarians, kennels and horse farms. She has held a wide variety of positions in these businesses. She has been in charge of ground training foals and barn manager. She has also been the Salon and Kennel manager for a local kennel.
In the late 90's, April developed and marketed "Pet Essentials", her own line of all natural grooming products. April has been published in "Natural Awakenings" magazine, penning several articles on natural methods of flea control and care. Companion animals have always been her passion. She has bred and trained Border Collies for agility trials and for general purpose use o the horse farms she has been involved with.
With her wide variety of training, knowledge and experience April has shown she has what it takes to provide a safe and loving environment for your pets. Stop by any time to meet her!
