We are so pleased about Bailey staying with Mark. Bailey often has separation anxiety, but there was none of that with Mark. This is such a better option than going to a kennel. We hope that Mark will be available next time we need a sitter. Thanks, Mark!

Our two bassets had an awesome time. Can’t say enough about Mark and his family taking care of our dogs! Communicates extremely well and couldn’t have been a better host. Thank you so much. I highly highly recommend.

Mark is great!! He sent photos and updates and it was so nice to know that she was being so well taken care of. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone and will certainly use him again when needed. She had a great stay!

When Mark watches your pet

-We walk 30-60 minutes daily in an old growth pine forest, rain or shine. The forest is just down the street from our home and chances are you make a take a loop through the woods on our meet and greet.
-I live on a lake and in the summer my water loving dog (and perhaps yours) takes full advantage of a refreshing game of fetch.
-We often teach our in home guests. Everything from basics to a friendly game of hide and seek.
