April Leitzsch

founder of VIP Dog Walking and Pet Sitting LLC

Growing up, I was always the girl surrounded by animals. I had every small animal I could: Hamsters, Gerbils, Guinea Pigs, Ferrets and, of course, our family dog Reno (A Bichon Frise). 
When I was 12 years old, I even spent an entire summer riding horses and working at a local barn.  It was one of the best summers of my life!  After that, I knew that my passion was working with animals.  In my teens, I would pet sit for the neighbors during the summer, or walk dogs after school. When I was 18, I started working for a Veterinary Office where I worked for 3 years, which made my love for animals grow even more!
I started school at Merrifield School of Pet Grooming and received my certification as a Professional Pet Groomer, which I did for 9 years. I loved my job, but growing up in South Florida, I needed to be outside! 
In 2014 I consulted a local Pet Sitter about starting a Professional Pet Sitting Business. Little did I know she was actually looking to retire and asked if I would like to take over her business. I said YES! I owned and operated AT Your Bark and Call Pet Sitting and Dog Walking until moving to Maumelle in 2018. Since moving here, I have started and operate my own business, VIP Dog Walking and Pet Sitting. I feel like the luckiest woman alive to be able to do a job that involves my passion of caring for animals, and I hope to bring that passion everyday to all of my fellow animal lovers!

Jessica

Office Manager

Hey there, I'm Jessica, and I'm thrilled to introduce myself as a certified pet enthusiast and your go-to pet care partner!  From the time I was knee-high, pets have been my jam.  Whether it's a wagging tail, a cozy purr, or even a friendly chirp, I'm all in for the furry, feathery, and scaly crew.  Pets are not just animals; they're family, and I've got a hearth that's as big as the Grand Canyon for our four-legged and feathered friends.  My journey into the world of pet care started with my own critter crew and countries hours volunteering at animal shelters.  I quickly realized that pets deserve nothing but the best, and that's what I'm here to deliver.  I'm your one-stop shop for pet wisdom.  I've got a treasure chest of tips, tricks, and insights to help you and your pet live your best lives together.  Let's make pet ownership an adventure filled with laughter and unforgettable moments!

Carolyn

Dog Walker & Pet Sitter

Maumelle Area

I am a positive, responsible, energetic and health driven person, for myself and my pets.  I've done a variety of things through the years from supervising a landscape crew to being a house painter and then on to excelling at being a personal fitness trainer and instructor.  I've learned how to listen and interact with people and to be attentive to their situations and needs.  My greatest accomplishments have been my marriage, my three awesome children and two precious grandbabies.  Additionally, I've enjoyed much satisfaction from assisting clients in reaching their goals, whether it be losing weight, preparing for a marathon, or simply helping to make a better quality of life.  My interests range from bicycling to cooking to playing the piano to walking my dog Jax.  I have always owned a dog, and each has been an integral part of our family.  I am looking forward to meeting you and your furry kids!

Hi!  My name is Ezra.  I am an art student with a passion for animals, especially cats and reptiles!  I have been a pet sitter for a while and I love doing it.  It has been the most fulfilling career that I have been in thus far.  I start back up at college in January and will be going to pursue my degree in art education.  I recently moved back to Arkansas from Texas.  I moved to Texas with my best friend when I was 18, but decided that I missed my family and the nature of Arkansas.  While in Texas I worked at Target for two years as well as the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, where I worked in group sales.  I started pet sitting not long after I stopped working there and discovered that not only did I love it, but it was the best thing I could be doing for myself.  I am excited to start my journey with VIP!

I have had just about every type of animal from the time I was born! Dogs, cats, horses, birds, reptiles, rodents… you name it, and it has probably been in my care! Since I love animals so much, taking care of fur babies is right up my alley, which is why I chose to work for this company. Your cats and dogs are safe with and loved by me. I will treat them as my own from the time I get there until the time I have to say goodbye!

Hello! My name is Erin Love and I have had animals for the majority of my life. My mom has always called me the animal whisperer. I have experience caring for dogs, cats, horses, lizards and birds! I have 2 years of vet medicine experience under my belt so I can tell when a pet may need medical attention.
