My care instructions specifically said to stay with my dog at all times, Marcus left her alone to go scooter with his friend...

Marcus is great with my dog. He obviously loves spending time with her and she gets excited to see him. He is very flexible with timeframes (pickup/drop off).

Marcus was great with my two dogs! He was very accommodating and made them feel comfortable. He made sure to give them the exercise they need and sent me updates on how their stay was going. They came back home very tired and happy :)

I'm a professional dog lover.

The number one thing dog owners will love about the care I provide is how much their dogs will love it and how comfortable their dogs will be. From the minute their dog is in my care, to the minute I return the dog, the owner will be able to put any worry out of their mind. They will know their dog is happy and comfortable even if it is one of our first meetings ...

What Marcus would like to know about your dog

I am happy to take care of pretty much any dog. I of course need to know details about the dogs diet, any anxiety issues the dog might have, any allergies, what activities the dog likes or doesn't like (i.e. dog parks, dog beach, playdates with other dogs, riding in the car, and so forth). I also want to know is if the owner has any preferences as far as rules for the dog. For example, I don't mind dogs on the furniture, but I don't want the dog to pick up bad habits while staying with me that the owner won't appreciate.

When Marcus watches your pet

I like taking dogs to the dog beach in OB, Fiesta Island, and dog parks. I find these are the places most dogs are happiest. Of course, I will consult the owner before taking their dog anywhere besides a walk around the neighborhood. I live a short walk from the beach at Mission Bay in Pacific Beach, which is probably the direction I will usually walk the dog. Also, my sister has two great dogs; both are medium sized, well behaved and friendly, and we might all go to the park together at some point.
