About Marc & Izzy

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My girlfriend and I live a block away from the beach and two blocks from a dog park in Venice. Since it's the two of us your dog will be supervised all day as at least one of us will be home at all times. I work from home and she has a part time job working 4-5 hours a day.

We live in a one bed apartment with a nice fenced in community area for the dogs to play in.

Max two dogs.. I feel like anything over 2 dogs at once and we won't be able to play and pay enough attention to them.

We want to start sitting because we both grew up with dogs and miss them. Whenever we walk by the dog park or on the boardwalk we always see super cute pups haha..

Pictures are totally acceptable. We can send you update pictures and everything,

Marc grew in a 3 dog household pretty much his whole life. His girlfriend hasn't had a dog before but is very interested in the possibility of having a dog sometime in the near future, so they both love the idea of hosting pups in their apartment together.

The apartment is situated just a block from the boardwalk and beach, and it has a common outdoor area just down the stairs where Marc can take any guest pups for outdoor fun very easily!
Marc was incredible. He sent photos throughout the day and I never doubted that our dog was safe. I would recommend him to anyone in an instant.
Marc and Izzy were great! This was the first time our puppy had been away from home, and I was nervous. But they knew exactly how to handle a rambunctious 6-month-old, and sent me lots of updates of him playing and being a good pup. Will 100% book w/ them again!
Marc and Izzy are great! Very easy going and responsive. My pup had a great time and I know she got lots of love. Will book a repeat stay for sure!
I had to travel on a last minute trip and Marc and Izzy saved the day. They cared for my little Pom as if she was their own. I'm so grateful!!
Thanks Marc!
Mark & Izzy allowed my dog to be the only one in their home. They were so kind & professional. Rhuby seemed to be very happy!
Marc and Izzy were terrific with our Nola! They immediately put our mind at ease, as it was Nola's first time away from home. The daily pictures showed how comfortable she was and we are grateful for keeping Nola so happy and safe.

We would highly recommend Izzy and Marc and definitely plan to use them again in the future.
Mark and Izzie were very nice when I met them. They were quite nice w/ our 11 yr. old dog Copper. He was allowed to get on the bed and couch as he does at home. I felt Copper was in good hands as he isn't left places very often and has never had an in-house sitter. I would use them again. Thank you, Mark and Izzie! sandi w.
Mark & Izzy took care of out chewy as if he were there own. He slept on the bed between them! He was well exercised and loved. Such a relief to leave our furry baby in such great hands.
Our Boxer, Hanks, spent a week at Marc and Izzy's while we were on vacation and he truly did not want to come home! From all the daily photo updates we got, it was obvious Hanks had a blast. He was always taking walks at the beach or was at the dog park. Marc and Izzy are easy and quick to communicate with. We have already booked them again!
Marc was awesome and did a great job with our pets!
Marc and Izzy took great care of Caspian and Blizzard for four nights while we enjoyed a vacation away from home. They live close to the beach and a dog park so the pups had lots of exercise. We received pictures daily of our pups smiling and enjoying their time with Marc and Izzy. They shared stories with us about their activities which told us know they got to know our dogs well. We could tell they were well loved in our absence which made it much easier for us to be away.
Marc was very responsive and easy to communicate with. Our return flight was delayed and Blaine had to stay a bit longer than expected but Marc was happy to have him. We got updated each day with pictures of Blaine making himself at home. We picked Blaine up after his 3 night stay and he was exhausted from attention and walks. Marc took great care of our pup and we are grateful. Very impressed with our first Dog Vacay experience. I'm already recommeding the App to friends.
Marc and his girlfriend were amazing. So chill and took Ziggy to the dog park everyday. They had him on their bed, watching telly together. We would have Marc take of Zig again without hesitation.
Marc and his partner were amazing-- they were very attentive and sent us pictures and brief updates every day. We have two high maintenance dogs and they both did really well. We also had an unexpected delay in our return because of a cancelled flight and Marc was super accomodating, taking care of the dogs an extra day and a half on very short notice. Thanks!
marc was great. very responsive to instructions and made sure lex had plenty of activity
Marc & his girlfriend took great care of jet. They sent a few pictures and were easy to coordinate times with. Jet was both happy and exhausted when I picked him up which is just what I was hoping for. I will be sure to use them moving forward!
Thanks so much for taking care of Lulah and sending pictures while I was gone on a long trip. It seems like she really enjoyed her stay with Marc!
Marc was great and Trooper had a fun visit! Will definitely book with him again. Trooper was very happy there- nice long walks.
If you want your dog to have a great beachside vacation, this is the place to be. Marc and Izzy took care of our German Shepherd as if he was their own.

They were great and gave our buddy a lot of attention, walked him along the Venice boardwalk and sent pictures regularly. He was definitely spoiled. We would trust Marc and Izzy to care for our dog again.
Kasper had the best time with Marc & really enjoyed the beach. I highly recommend Marc & look forward to booking with him in the near future.
Our pup Mosley had a great time at Marc's! He sent pictures from his walk and was exhausted when we picked him up.
Marc is great! He is super flexible with drop off and pickup, which is awesome for me since my schedule varies daily. Roh is just a pup and I was nervous about leaving him for the day with someone but once I met Marc I felt like he would be in good hands, and we plan on going back frequently.
Marc was great, helping me out in a pinch! Excellent communication & Corbin had a great time. Would definitely book again in the future!
Marc was awesome. My dog is not easy because he's hyper, alpha dominant, and requires a lot of work. Everybody tells me they can handle him until the meet him. Marc told me that the first night the dog was wining a lot, probably because of the unfamiliar environment, but he offered to keep him for an extra night to see if he would adjust ... and he did! When I picked him, he was quiet and looked happy. Thanks Marc!
Marc was awesome!
Judy had a great time. She fell in love with Marc!
Marc and Izzy took great care of our dog Ellie! They were super flexible about pickup and dropoff times and I was glad that someone was with her most of the time: she's really social and gets anxious when left alone. We'll see if they're free next time we have a weekend away!
I was very happy with my first doggy vacay experience. My booking was super late and Marc was super accommodating. My pitbull isn't fond of other dogs and he made sure she was the only dog in the house. She was taken on three walks a day and I received adorable pictures of her eating treats her sitters bought for her! Normally Penelope has sad energy when I go out of town but when I picked her up she was totally happy and comfortable. I would definitely use Marc again. Thanks!
Marc & Izzy are super sweet and very laid back. I contact them on short notice as we were leaving for the weekend and our regular sitter was unavailable.
They are very accommodating. We had a meet & greet and was able to drop off Kasper the following day for his stay.
They kept in touch with me while I was gone and let me know how Kasper was doing.
I would definitely recommend Marc & Izzy and plan on leaving Kasper with them again.
