About Walter

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello fellow furbaby parent! My name is Walter , (I go by my middle name Mark mostly) I'm a college graduate from the College of Charleston with a B.S. in Psychology, specializing in child life/developmental psych. previously, I worked part-time for a company that provides ABA therapy services to developmentally disabled children. I work from home now mostly, which allows me to cultivate my real passion, which is taking care of animals, especially doggos!

I have owned 3 Labradors over the course of my life, all of whom have gone through AKC approved training classes (with myself as the primary caregiver for 2 of them) My current furbaby, Duke, is lab mix who is 100% trained and housebroken, and loves to play with his rubber pigs!

I live at my home in Mount Pleasant, SC, right around the corner from Towne Centre. The home is on a plot of land that is just shy of a full acre. I have a large backyard and a large front yard. The neighborhood is VERY dog friendly, and my house has a full, non-separated fence that encompasses the entirety of the quite large backyard.


A little bit about Duke and I... Duke is a rescue dog who I adopted back in early 2012. He was abused by his previous owner and was about to be taken to a kill-shelter until I took him in. Because of his previous abuse, I took him to professional training and socialization classes over the course of about 1 1/2 years, and because of that and his new loving environment, is a wonderful pup (i still call him pup).

I'm experienced with aggressive animals, older animals, puppies, you name it. If you have special instructions/requests for your pet while in my care, I will be more than happy to oblige. If you have any questions/comments/concerns, please feel free to call me or email me.

**NOTE: I have no other pets at home except Duke, the only reason I selected "reptiles" for other animals at the home, is because it was a "required field" for some reason, and there is the occasional lizard that hops around the area.

Walter is awesome! He is very accommodating to both owner and pet. If ever in Charleston again, I will be sure to take advantage of his services. Thank you, Walter
My 8 month old puppy stayed with Walter for the weekend while I was making a quick trip to Charleston. When I dropped Kingston off Walter was very nice and welcoming, he has another dog which was nice so Kingston could play with him. He also has a nice big backyard for the dogs to run in! Walter was great about updating me, sending me pictures or communicating any questions about my pup! Definitely recommend :-)

Walt and Cat (Kat?) are absolutely amazing. They kept my 10-month-old GSD for 9 nights while my boyfriend and I were on vacation and he absolutely loved it. We expected him to be thrilled when we came to pick him up and he was barely phased because he was having so much fun. Walt was great about sending pics and message updates while we were away, and he has a huge fenced in yard that Wilde loved playing in. Will definitely be using them again any time we are out of town. Thanks again!
