About Mark

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi!
Professor and I would love to host your four-legged friend in our home (by the way, Professor is my dog's name ;-) Our one-bedroom apartment is spacious with lots of sunlight and has a calm and happy vibe. Professor is very well behaved and he loves making new friends. He's a happy-go-lucky kind of guy.

I'm a graphic designer and I work from home, so your pup will never be alone for any extended time. I'm also a runner and bike everywhere.

Professor and I go on walks three times a day. If the weather permits, we also go to a dog park 2-3 times a week. The parks we hit up most are the Herbert Von King dog run, as well as the off-leash times at Prospect Park and Fort Greene Park. Your dog is going to have a great time with us.

We usually only host one dog at a time, except if it's two dogs from the same household.

If you have any questions, feel free to send us a message, or schedule a meet-and-greet. We'd love to hear from you!

Mark has a spacious 1 bedroom apartment with lots of sunshine that your pup will love! Your pup will also have the company of his sweet and calm dog, Professor. Since Mark works at home, your pup will be spoiled with love and affection!
The best thing about Mark is that I felt my dog, Moses, was safe and in good hands. We had a thorough meet-n-greet to introduce his dog to mine, and also spoke about my pet's specific needs. Mark was also nice enough to recommend a dog sitter close to my home for the future, since it is very difficult transporting a dog in a car before work (which was the case in order to get to his house for daycare).

The only thing I would ask is that Mark is a little bit more accommodating to my needs during the day since I am the customer. Even though I was done with work at 3:15, I had to wait until 4 to get Moses as he was on another job. Also, when I asked if I could then come at 5, he was not able to accommodate. I would just ask for more flexibility on his end if possible.

Overall, great experience and I would recommend Mark for your pet-sitting needs.

Lil Madonna had a great time with Mark! Not only is he patient and kind, but he has a great space, a sweet dog, and experience rehabilitating nervous rescues. I'm excited to rebook him in the future.
Mark and Professor were so wonderful with my pup, Addy. Right before I left for my trip, Addy managed to injury herself and Mark went above and beyond to make sure she had the care she needed while I was gone. I highly recommend Mark and Professor. Your pup will be safe and have a great time too.
