While working at a vet clinic, April Campbell felt terrible for dogs kept cooped up in kennels with just a walk or two per day. She thought about it and felt there had to be a better way to love and care for boarded dogs. After dreaming and planning, she happened across a building that would be perfect for a dog daycare and boarding business and jumped in. In 2005, she opened Central Park Dog Daycare, 5420 N. Classen Blvd. in Oklahoma City. Central Park Dog Daycare offers boarding, grooming and daycare services for dogs and so much more!
Since opening, she has expanded into a second location, Central Park May Dog Daycare at 2905 N.W. 70th St. (off N. May Ave.) in Oklahoma City. She now offers a very successful Cage-Free Boarding option and other premium add on services. April hopes to eventually expand into a larger, updated facility to offer more dog daycare and boarding options.
April is a member of The Posse and finds that while running her business, she really enjoys the support other members offer both professionally and personally. “Everyone has something to contribute,” she said. She also participates in one on one coaching from The Mettise Group which offers her more personalized guidance about specific issues and to help grow her business.
