About Mark & Laurel

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We've moved!

We are now located in the East End of Ventura. We have a great backyard and several parks within walking distance!

PLEASE NOTE: We are currently only accepting small/medium sized dogs up to 50lbs. We may consider a very placid larger dog on a case by case basis.

HOLIDAYS: We do charge $45/day for 12/24 - 1/1.

We have a toddler and a baby so we can only accept doggies that are ok with kids petting them and running around.

We own and manage a professional pet care company that services Los Angeles County (10+ years in the pet care industry) and run that business from home so we are always around to pamper your precious pooch! We also carry our own professional liability insurance. Come on over and meet us!

Please note: our drop off and pick up hours are between 8am-6pm. We are closed at 6pm and it will be necessary to book one additional night and pick up your dog in the morning. Thank you.

We don't have kids so we're pretty attached to our dog. This was my first time using DogVacay. We've only had close friends sit our quirky little Shiba Inu and they totally get her breed, so we were a little nervous picking a stranger. We immediately liked Mark's calm energy at our meet-n-greet and he was accommodating with my request to have our dogs meet away from us, our dog sometimes gets protective. It all went well and I booked. The drop off was super easy, Mark was very communicative about how things were going and texted us photos throughout our trip - which was the best because we were worried and hoping it was going well with their family and their dog. You just never know, right? The pick up at the end was great and Mark was super accommodating about the dates and times. I would recommend Mark and Laurel highly and would definitely use them again for our next trip. Thanks so much for taking care of our baby!
Mark and Laurel are wonderful. They were very accommodating to take my two Frenchies. They are easygoing, caring people who genuinely enjoy the chaos of dogs running around. I was sent photos and updates everyday. I do not consider my babies as dogs, so to leave them is very difficult for me. When I went to pick them up, they were so happy and acting like they owned the place. I would highly recommend Mark & Laurel because they have such a loving home and calm demeanor. I will definitely use their services again.
Remy was well taken care of and came home pretty worn out from all the play time he had. I was happy to have found Mark and Laurel so close to home. Remy got along very well with their dog Koa and had plenty of freedom to play and exercise. I loved getting pictures and updates while I was out of town.
We had only left our dog Jax one other time and that was with a family member. He tends to get severely depressed when he is away from us and it is stressful for us not knowing how he would react in a different environment . Mark and Laurel were great hosts and took the time to send us a photo and let us know he was doing great while we were away. Jax was happy and relaxed when we picked him up and I could tell he had a good experience. Thanks so much for taking care of him! Boni
I was very pleased with Mark and Laurel and felt confident in the way they would take care of our Cookie!I would recommend their services to all my pet owner friends.
They were terrific hosts. They made my elderly dog feel right at home and kept in touch with me during her stay. They dealt very well with an elderly dog with issues. I am very appreciative of their care.
We were so lucky to have found Mark and Laurel on After meeting their family we knew our dog Bentley would be in a safe and loving environment. While away we received wonderful photos of our dog playing and walking at the beach having a great time. I can't tell you the peace of mind that we felt with Mark and Laurel. We highly recommend using them and when the opportunity arises we will request them again.
My dog, Maya just had her first stay with Mark & Laurel and came home happy and relaxed. Maya loved hanging out in their yard with their two girls and their dog Koa. Mark and Laurel were super accommodating and responsive. We were in touch several times by phone and text (especially since I was late to pick Maya up due to heavy traffic in LA) and they could not have been nicer or easier to work with. I felt very comfortable entrusting my sweet dog to them!
Mark took very good care of our Misty. Very friendly and provided a very safe environment. Thank you for taking care of our Misty.
I am so grateful for Mark and Laurel of Sandy Dogs. Two days before our departure, my 15 yr old dog had a stroke, with some significant difficulties walking and navigating stairs. While accommodations were made to keep her downstairs, Mark carried her 55 lbs up and down the stairs, just so she wouldn't be alone. Not to mention she got daily walking "therapy" at the beach. I received updates throughout the week which put my mind at ease, and it was obvious she was loved and cared for. I would highly recommend Sandy Dogs!
Mark & Laurel were awesome. This was the first time that we left our puppy and they made me feel very comfortable. They kept in contact with me and sent me photo updates on his daily adventures. We will return for sure! Thank you Mark & Laurel!!
Mark & Laurel are SUPER wonderful folks to have look after my precious Milka. I felt secure with their home, the surrounding my maltese would be in and their love for animals.
I got photo's every day during her stay there and received daily updates as to how she was doing.

Thanks so much Mark & Laurel. We will definitely use your services again!

Mark and Laurel were the perfect dog parents for Roxie when we took our vacation. They kept me updated with pictures during the time we were away, which was very nice and gave us peace of mind that she was having a good time and was well taken care of. This was a great experience for Roxie, and for us. Tons better than a kennel alternative, and we are looking forward to the next time we go away, with no hesitation that Roxie will be in good hands!
