About Mark

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dogs are our life!! We are a professional dog care service that takes all breeds of dog from puppy training to hospice care. We service Costa Mesa, Newport & Huntington Beach and their surrounding areas. We run an in-home doggy daycare and a non-profit called PawsForPain.com where we locate and train rescued dogs to be service dogs for the disabled at no cost to them. Our day starts early at 6:00 AM when we start taking in our daycare dogs (all dogs shot records are on file and every dog is able to enter with out disruption from others). We feed at 7:30 AM & 5:30 PM, have "Ball" & "Organized Playtime" at 11:30 & 3PM & we also do individual or pack walks on the Fairview Park Trails a couple times a day, On the hot days we have two small play pools and a BIG sprinkler so our buddies can cool off. Gina Is an ex-vet tech of 5 years and is recertified in animal CPR/First Aid. We work with a couple of rescue organizations and give animal evaluations, we also work with many dogs with socialization problems. Out team practices simple obedience training with every dog, everyday at no extra cost to you.
Our calendar fills up very fast, so if you can not find the dates that you need then please send us a message and we will try to work with you.

"Please ask about our "Free Stay Referral Program"

** We have now hired a fulltime dog walker to help Gina and I keep up on our doggie exercise program. Thanks Kelsey keep up the good work!

** Although we do a thorough job of dog proofing our house and keeping a close eye on your dog, you will be responsible for anything that your dog chews up.

Thank you for trusting us with the care of your loved dog while you are away.

We cant wait to work with you!

Mark was very patient with my girl Josie introducing her to the pack and making sure she felt comfortable. Josie has a blast at Puppy Playhouse and the staff are great! Thanks Mark
Mark literally answered the door wearing a shirt that said "pack leader"... that's when I knew my pup was in good hands! He slept for two days after we picked him up..a sure sign he had a blast at the puppy playhouse! We will be using him again in we picked him up..a sure sign he had a blast at the puppy playhouse! We will be using him again in the future!

Our dog regularly acts out when encountering other dogs, so we sent her to socialize with other dogs. The dog trainer was very quick to correct her when she started to growl and was able to get her to play with the other dogs in his pack. The when she started to growl and was able to get her to play with the other dogs in his pack. The trainer appears highly skilled and enthusiastic working with dogs.
