About Marco

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

My name is Marco and I have been a huge dog lover and owner all my life. I live in a huge apt on the Upper West Side which is located half a block from Riverside Park, 4 blocks from Central Park and 4 blocks from a dog run. I am a working professional that is lucky enough to be able to work from home. I currently have a 2.5 year old Puggle named Rocky who gets alone with pretty much everyone. My goal is to provide a safe, loving and fun environment for your dog to stay in while you are away. I will walk your dog at least 3x day or more if need be. Rest assured that your dog will be in great hands and I will update you throughout the day with pics and texts on how your dog is doing.

Thank you for our consideration

Hello, my name is Gerardo Barrera. I have known Marco since the age of 5. I am now 42 years old. He is very responsible and makes sure he accomplishes his tasks by informing himself prior this way he is ready and motivated to do the task correctly that's at hand. And on a personal note. Marco has a puggle of his own. And in our earlier years of long time friendship he has also had a Shepard mix, and a puggle. He definitely has the experience and love for dogs. I hope this helps to better get to know Marco. Thank you, Gerardo Barrera.

I know Marco for a few years and if anyone loves dogs more than anything is Marco . He is truly amazing when caring for them and making sure all their needs are met. He loves taking his dog "Rocky" to dog parks and long walks to interact with other doggies. I trust him with my doggie any day , I know he will care for him as his own.

Marco is a very caring and attentive dog owner. He is so attuned to their needs and provides the best companionship you could ask for. He is located next to a dog park and the neighborhood is very dog friendly so there are worries about your animals walking or interaction with other furry friends. I would not hesitate to recommend him for dog vacay because they would be in wonderful hands.

Marco is great with animals, he has such compassion for animals and treats then like royalty. When I've needed he has taken great care of my Lil one and i don't trust to many people with my Lil guy.

Marco is a great dog lover, new to DogVacay, but I could tell with my meeting with him that he will take the absolute best care of your pup. He lives in a very large apartment with hardwood floors throughout so your pet is going to be able to frolic at will through the various rooms and play with Marco's own friendly pet puggle, Rocky. He is also just steps away from Riverside Park, so your pet is going to get lots of good outdoor exercise as well. He works from home so it's certain your dog won't be alone very often, which is very important to calm and reassure pups in a new environment. Heartily recommended.
I just moved into my new neighborhood and had a last minute trip for a funeral. Marco made himself available for a last minute meet & greet, and was extremely punctual for the dropoff and pickup. His pup was a sweety too! Highly recommend!
Marco was so caring with Izzy. He responded to all text messages and kept us updated.
Marco is an amazing pet sitter!!!! I left my dog Gipsy for Thanksgiving long weekend with him and his dog Rocky. I know she had a great time with them and she felt like at home. My dog sometimes has anxiety with new sitters and she can have accidents, but not the case with Marco. Rocky is an amazing and well behaved dog who became Gipsy's best buddy. Marco always kept me posted with pictures and updates of how she was doing, and I really appreciate that from him. Gipsy went out for a good number of nice walks everyday plus a lot of playtime and snuggling at home. He is a dog owner who loves his dog, so he understands us as dog parents. Also, his place is big, very comfortable with very good location next to the park. Very easy to schedule a meet and greet as well as booking my dog's stay. Definitely Marco, we'll see you again.....Thank you so much for being such a loving and caring person with Gipsy.
