Mark was so awesome with our energetic and loving dog Billie! She had a great time playing with his dog Rocket and he kept us updated with many photos per day. We will definitely be working with him again!

My elderly, deaf and almost blind dog got amazing care at Mark's house. I won't leave her with anyone else. Thank you very much, Mark. We are very hesitant to leave her and she was in great hands with you.

My 11 year old Yorkiepoo had a great stay with Mark and his wife. They are super nice and accommodating people. My dog obviously got lots of attention from Mark. He came home calm, clean and well cared for. I will definitely use them again. Thanks again Mark!

Keep your dog happy and safe

We are a dog-loving family. Over the years, we've shared our home with lots of dogs and cared for many more. I am often the first person my friends call to care for their cold-noses while they travel, and the pups always return home happy and healthy. I have given meds to dogs that range from from a 15 lb MinPin to a lovely 200+ lb Great Pyrenees, and we all remained friends afterwards.

What Mark would like to know about your dog

Dogs who get along with dogs and people are always welcome. Leash discipline is encouraged but not a requirement. Housebroken is also good. If your dog has any special needs, such as help with stairs, medication, special attention, or there is any way they can feel more secure and happy, please let me know.

When Mark watches your pet

We live in Lincolnwood, an area with big yards, wide streets and many places to take a good walk. A favorite is the bike trail, which gives us about a mile loop. When your dog is my guest, they are never outside without a leash. L-Wood is a dog-friendly community, and Rocket and I often meet up with other dogs and their person when we’re out for a stroll. You think Rocket drew up the floor plan here. Lots of windows with sills low enough to see over, comfy chairs and couches, and a nice big rug in front of the fireplace where multiple dogs can settle in while visiting.
We also like to play inside and out. The dogs have room to move around and when a dog has a favorite toy or activity, we add it right into the mix. There is also enough space so your dog can have peace and quiet. Naps are common.
