About mac

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I've had dogs all my life and now I'm retired, so I can do the things I love the most, hanging out with my buddies. (my dogs) lol
My wife and friends think I'm a dog whisperer. Because I have my own dogs my home is ideal for taking care of them. We also have friends that love to bring their own dogs over to play and run around with. If I watch your dog, then they will have the opportunity to go to the park, the harbor or just run an errand with me on a daily basis. Things are never boring at our house and your pet will feel just as much love as if they were my own. I also offer a 10 % discount for 2 or more pups.

Mac is my go to guy whenever I need a place for my Archie to stay. He makes the whole experience easy and makes Archie's stay enjoyable. Highly recommended!
Mac and his wife were awesome! They were flexible with drop off and pick up times and sent me updates on how our pup was doing. She had a great time and we will use them again in the future.
Mac did a great job taking care of our pups. They were both very tired when we picked them up, so they must have had lots of fun! He was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. We will definitely be using Mac again!
Mac is the best! His home is Sierra and Isabels second home! WE love them!
Mac was great! It's pretty clear that he knows dogs really well, which put me at ease. He's attentive, flexible with dates, and really zeroes in on how to acclimate your dogs to his home environment. He's got a large yard, so plenty of room for dogs to run around. I also appreciated how accessible he was by phone and messaging. I was also getting frequent updates, which was awesome because I liked to see how my dogs were doing. When I picked up my dogs, they looked pretty happy and tired. :)
I look forward to having Mac watch my dogs again!
I recently moved to the area and was worried about finding someone to look after my very active 11 year Jack Russell Terrier who I have seldom left with anyone but family. The first time I met Mac I knew that Zoey would be in great hands. He took the time at our first meeting to make sure that Zoey would get along with his dogs and that his backyard was escape-proof. Mac is very warm and caring and my dog immediately felt at ease with him.
While I was away I was sent daily updates and reports that confirmed to me that Zoey felt comfortable in her new surroundings and was behaving in Mac's home the same as she would in my own home which was a huge relief. Mac even took Zoey for an excursion to the beach!
When I picked up Zoey after an extended stay, she was happy and playful. Mac was very flexible about drop off and pick up times. I have already made reservations for future dates. Thank you Mac!
For our husky wolf and for a wonderful hosts who accepted our puppies' with open arms including the rest of the canine groups, you are awesome! Thank you fortreating them like a family. No better place to be!
Mac is the best! He and his wife love dogs and are always available when we call for Buddy! Couldn't be better !!!
Dutchess had a great time and made lots of friends! The yard was nice and spacious and we received daily updates with pics of our pup. Mac truly cares about dogs and will make yours feel right at home! Thanks Mac!
Mac was very responsive and clearly loves dogs. I was satisfied with the dog Vacay.
Our beagle, Adora, loved being at Mac's house. She was treated like a member of the family! Park visits, neighbor visits, and down time on Mac's bed! She was well-cared for and we received frequent updates and pictures! It is evident that Mac and his wife love dogs!
Mac was very good with our dogs and he has a huge yard for them to play in. Everything went as expected and I would definitely refer Mac to a family or friend.
Our puppy was well taken care of and came home all worn out after so much fun puppy play!
Very helpful. Awesome service and great person to work with.
Mac was extremely flexible & responsive. Dogs seemed to have had a fun visit. Will definitely use Mac again & highly recommend him!
Our dog had a great time staying at Mac's place. Mac has a very fun yard, adventurous and dog friendly. Mac's two German Shepard are super friendly and get along very well with our dog- a miniature schnauzer. The hosts are very nice people, and make things very easy for us. We will recommend them to others and will definitely choose them again.
Mac was great with our Yorkies. His home is perfect for boarding, and he was very engaged in their care. The only concern is he has a couple of big dogs and our little dogs were frightened. Not Mac's fault! His site clearly shows two German Shepherd dogs. I just didn't realize my little Yorkies would be intimidated. This is an excellent place to board your animals when in Oceanside!
When I brought my dog, Pun, to see Mac for a meet and greet, I knew everything would be fine. I will definitely be bringing Pun back to Mac again. We received daily correspondence and pictures of how he was doing and behaving. Pun was treated just like he was at home. When we picked him up, he was happy and full of spunk. I thought it might be too much for Pun because we left him for two weeks, but Mac made him comfortable and took the best care of him. I would definitely recommend Mac to anyone that needs their pet babies taken care of. His home fosters an amazing environment for the dogs, and they will definitely have a great time.
Mac is really awesome! I was pretty nervous leaving my 3 dogs, including my daughter's service dog, because I had never left them with anyone before. When I picked them up 4 days later, they were healthy, safe and happy. I wouldn't hesitate lo leave my dogs with Mac anytime. I'm telling all my friends!
Mac and his wife and dogs are amazing! We have a rescue dog and didn't want to throw him back into a kennel while we were out of town and we're so glad we didn't. Our dog went to the parks, beaches, on drives, etc. He was so spoiled and they took care of our pup like he was their own. We'll definitely be dropping our dog off again - even if it's just for a few hours of fun.
We could not have asked for a more loving experience for our two pups. Mac and his wife are AMAZING!! We will definitely use them again!
Louie & Buster did great at Mac's! They got along great with his dogs, and Mac made me feel comfortable about leaving them with him. He took them for a walk in the park, which they needed, since I've been laid up by an ankle injury.
They were nice and tired by the time I brought them home.
Mac and his wife took care of my 2 dogs ( lab mix and golden/husky mix) along with 4 other dogs over the holidays. They had a great time and were super comfortable when I arrived to pick them up. One of my dogs has a history of panic attacks/ melt downs when I'm not around. He was totally comfortable with Mac. They treated my dogs like their own. They sent pictures and updates regularly. I hope they'll be able to stay with them again the next time I'm away.
Mac has been super helpful and flexible! He spoils my babies with treats and special ride in his truck. I look forward to being a repeat customer of Macs!
Mac is great and Buddy loves it there!
I will be leaving my dogs with Mac for an extended period of time in December so I wanted to see how my dogs did for one day with him. My family came to town and we went for a hockey game so it was the perfect opportunity to see how they do.

First, Mac made sure I knew his rules for the house, for the dogs, and that any guest that comes into the house know the rules for the dogs. He told me the dogs always come first in his house. He then asked me what my rules were for the dogs in our home. I really appreciated him asking because we do not allow our dogs on the beds and I know if they get up their once it will be terrible to try and break the habit. He asked about their diets, if they're allowed to have human food, what treats they liked, and asked about their temperaments.

He assured me that if he leaves the house, the dogs go with. They're not out of his sight for more than a few minutes. He has plenty of room in his yard for the dogs to run, and he always had an eye on them.

He had no problem with me checking in every now and then through a text to see how they were and he has been very responsive.

When I came to pick them up he told me they did well! Mac's wife was there as well and they asked what kind of toys they liked so they can prep for their stay. It was a really sweet gesture! My dogs are STILL asleep from yesterday. They woke up for food and that's it! They went straight to sleep.

I'm confident that Mac will take great care of my dogs!
