About Mark

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My 14-year-old daughter, Jordyn, and I live in a house in a quiet neighborhood.
We have two cute, friendly little dogs of our own, Rosie and Oscar.

We have more than two-years experience taking care of guest dogs.
We have a very dog-friendly home with a fenced yard.
I am home most of the time, so I will give your dog lots of love and attention, including two long walks per day, and trips to the dog park if appropriate.
I am happy to book dogs solely for the purpose of trips to the dog park.
We look forward to your dog's visit :)

We had to travel for a substantial period of time, and our doggies found a good place to be loved and cared for. Mark sent us photos and kept us updated. He even helped us find another ditter to cover the dates he could not cover. Very happy.
Mark and his two sweet doggies were so friendly, our two were relaxed and happy despite having to be away from us all day.
At the meet and greet Mark let our dog explore his house and generally made us feel welcome. During our vacation Mark sent lots of pictures and updates about how our dog was doing. It is apparent that Mark enjoys caring for the dogs that stay with him. We had a great experience!
My husband and I left our dog Chewie for the weekend with Mark and his daughter. We just picked up our dog a few hours ago, and it appears that he has had way too much fun and is snoring peacefully on the couch!

Chewie can be a bit of an anxious dog so we were a little nervous to see how he behaved when we went to pick him up, but he was totally fine! He was excited to see us, but also jumping in excitement at Mark. On the car ride home he was completely calm and content which was a great indicator that he had a great experience :)

The best part of the whole experience was getting daily picture updates of how Chewie was doing! It was so fun seeing him on his walks with his new dog pals and snuggled up back at the house. Mark is also great about answering emails very quickly and he is great about having a flexible schedule to drop/pick up your dog.

We are so thankful for how well Mark took care of our fur baby and are excited to send our dog to him again!
We got recommendation from a friend about Mark. And we are so happy to find him! He is such a great sitter, welcoming, knowledgeable, and experienced with dogs. Our Shiba inu boy Kuma has never stayed at other places other than our home, or stayed with other dogs. But Mark made us feel much less nervous about this vacation away. He had several other dogs stay during Thanksgiving, but through the photo updates twice a day, we were assured that Kuma was having a wonderful time. Also Mark cares about every concern that we have, really makes us feel comfortable to leave Kuma there. We will definitely choose Mark again for future boarding.
Mark was a terrific sitter! He responds quickly, communicates well, is flexible, and sends pictures twice a day. It was evident from the daily pictures he sent that our Mochi got plenty of exercise and interaction which made him a very happy pup! We will definitely be using Mark in the future.
Mark is accommodating, kind, and forgiving of our crazy little dog. She had a great time, Mark sent photos of her at the dog run and going for walks. Mark does an excellent job!!
Mark was amazing! We are new dog owners, having just adopted our 2 little dogs. We were anxious as we had not left them with others away from home before, plus one of them is aggressive toward big dogs and both tend to dash after squirrels and cats. But Mark was great. He had us introduce our doggies to the other dogs at his place during meet and greet. He also sent us pictures during the day. We left our doggies for 12 hrs with him -- they were happy and relaxed when we picked them up. I will definitely be bringing our little ones back!
Mark was a great dog sitter. We received many photo updates. Highly recommend.
Mark was incredibly helpful and accommodating, answering our questions promptly and even taking time for a meet and greet before Sherman's stay.

Sherman clearly had a good time at Mark's place. It was so nice to get all of the photos that Mark shared during Sherman's stay. Sherman is looking forward to his next stay at Mark's!
Mark took excellent care of my crazy and fickle puppy. He kept me posted everyday with great pictures. My dog was around other animals of similar size and was not confined to a small space as he would have been in many temporary shelters. My dog got to go places and do things. I would not hesitate to bring Myles again, under any circumstances.
My puppies just love Mark and the other puppies.
Our 6 month old puppy spent a week with Mark and his extended family. He sent pictures every day, twice a day, which was very comforting to see our Teri having a good time. They went on walks daily and it was good to see Teri get familiar the "the pack". We will be boarding Teri with Mark again!
Snuzzy enjoyed himself. We looked forward in getting pictures of him everyday. Thanks Mark
always feel comfortable leaving with Mark He is the best!! Jean Hardy
My Izzy stayed with Mark for the first time at the end of August. Izzy has some special needs/wants as she spent most of her life caged in a puppy mill and therefore does not really know how to be a dog :). Mark was great with her, accommodated her needs and made her feel welcome and loved. He replied to all questions and concerns promptly and sent me daily pictures of my girl. I definitely plan on using Mark again to take care of my special pup!
Another great Dog Vacay courtesy of Mark and Jordyn!
Excellent like always. Mark really cares about our dog, Lula, and we know we can trust him each and every time. Thank you, Mark!
Our dog had a great time. It was our first time using dogvacay, and our dog is a 6 month old puppy, so we were a bit nervous leaving him somewhere new. But Mark took good care of him and we received pictures 2x a day which was reassuring. We're sending our dog back to him when we go away again!
Mark is amazing! He seamlessly booked a last minute stay. He was flexible on the pickup. Best of all, Java had a blast. I received daily picture updates about walks and other adventures. She even got to sleep in his bed! I will definitely book again. I recommend Mark 100 percent!
One day with Mark and I already know he will be my go to dog sitter. Olive had a blast and came home exhausted and happy!
This was my first time using DogVacay and I was really impressed! We were nervous about leaving PD with a stranger because he had just lost his best friend and was already anxious. Mark took such great care of him, even taking him to Magnuson a couple of times so that he could fetch balls in the water! I loved all the photos of my happy pup, and it was reassuring to know much fun he was having with his new friends. I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone!
We had a family emergency and needed to leave our pooch in good hands during a difficult time. Mark stepped up with his typically cheerful attitude and made worrying about our dog something that we just didn't have to do while we worried about a lot of other things. Thanks Mark!!!
Mark and his family are the best!
My experience with Mark was awesome!! I couldn't have asked for a better place for my brother's dog to stay. I would use Mark again!! Very pleased!!
Mark took great care of our Corgi!
Mark is a dependable sitter. Flexible with drop offs / pick ups, and around the house for most of the day. Chelsea appreciates the long walks and trips to the dog park.
Mark provided excellent service on short notice when we had a medical emergency and needed dog care. Generally, he provides a "meet and greet" ahead of time to help the dog feel comfortable when it is dropped off. Since we were not able to do a "meet and greet" he spent extra time with us to get acquainted. Our dog, Terrie, has special dietary restrictions and needs medicine with her meals. Mark met all of her needs while she was with him. He also sent photos and we could tell that Terrie was very happy there.
Mark has taken great care of our corgi, Rolo, a couple of times now and he's been amazing from day 1! We never worry when we leave Rolo with him and he sends frequent and wonderful updates on the outings and adventures that he takes Rolo and other doggies on. He's also responsive to messages and has always been flexible with drop off and pick ups. Highly recommend him!
As always, Mark took great care of Toby. Plenty of walks and play time with other dogs, and the many pictures were much appreciated. Mark has been our go-to sitter for about a year now, and we will continue to rely on him. Thanks, Mark!
Izzy, my dog enjoyed her stay very much at Marks house. She liked playing with all the other dogs. Mark sent me pictures every day of how she was doing and playing with the other dogs. She seems so happy to see me when I came home, but she also was having a good time playing with all her friends at DogVacay!! I am going to have Izzy stay at Marks house again this summer, because she had such a great time there. He really does care about the dogs and he takes them on very nice walks.
My dog Frank and I had the best experience using Mark. The whole time I was gone I felt so comforted getting updates and pictures. Frank was so loved and well-exercised, you can tell Mark truly cares about these dogs. Definitely my go-to from now on!
This was my dog's first experience with DogVacay. Mark was easy to work with, flexible and helpful at the meet-and greet. He was great with Lita. She had a good time with the various doggy guests and came home happy and tired! I loved that he took her to the dog park and on long walks, both things she loves. The pictures he sent helped me know that things were going well. I know we will be using Marks' services again.
Mark was AWESOME!! He really went above and beyond. Would definitely stay again.
Aero had a blast! Lots of walks, and playtime with several other dogs were both very good for him. Mark is very conscientious and caring, savvy about dog behavior and needs. He sent photos every day which we both loved. Our pup thrived there. We look forward to having Aero stay there again.
Peace of mind, and loved the daily photos!
Can't say enough great things about Maeby's stay with Mark! Mark was very quick to respond in all our correspondence to set up Maeby's reservation and we appreciated how flexible he was with our meet and greet and drop off/pick up times. We were out of cell phone reception for most of our trip so it was a real treat to come back into wifi-land to see that Mark had sent us picture updates of what Maeby did everyday! Looks like she stayed very busy with lots of walks, new dog friends, fetch, and swimming. We always know she had a good time on her "DogVacay" when she comes home with a little dirt on her neck :) We'll definitely be calling Mark again the next time we go out of town!
Gus had a lovely time with Mark and we really enjoyed the photo updates. Mark treated Gus just like the family and we really appreciate it.
Mark agreed to take our dog (Rusty) for the weekend super last minute. He really helped us out and Rusty had a great time! He was all smiles and then slept the entire day after we picked him up. We will definitely be booking with Mark again!
Banks came back happy and tired, had a great time at the dog park.
Merlin and Lucas, mini schnauzers, returned home from Mark's engaged and satisfied with their other housemates, double walks daily at a variety of parks, and having modeled for many photos which assured us they were having a great vacation. They were comfortable with Mark at his dog friendly accommodations and showed no stress as they have at other boarding accommodations. We will have no hesitation asking Mark to care for them in the future.
My Pom mix, Drogo, came back a happy and tired pup yet again :) Always looks like his is having fun in all his pictures at the park!
Julie enjoyed her stay and I look forward to booking with Mark again.
After warming up to someone new, Romeo really enjoyed his weekend stay with Mark and his daughter. We got lots of picture updates, which reassured us he was doing well while we were away. I am so glad that Romeo was able to go to the park and enjoy so much time outside while he was at Mark's!
Mark is SO great with our ladies. This is the second time we've used Mark, and no matter a short weekend or a whole week long vacation, I know that he and his daughter will love my pups like his own, and take wonderful care of them. You can tell from the first time you meet Mark, that he has a wonderful, caring soul and he makes you feel so comfortable leaving your fur babies in his hands! Thanks for taking care of Mildred and Lucy, Mark!
My dog had a great time with Mark, as usual. Lots of good long walks. Highly recommend.
Left Toby with Mark for 9 days while out of town, and it was a big load off our minds to know Toby was in Mark's care. Mark does a great job caring for dogs and sending out picture updates- we highly recommend him!
We continue to be very happy with Mark.
Our miniature schnauzer loves the time he spends with Mark. Mark does a wonderful job caring for Barkley and getting him out to the dog park and sharing daily updates/photos with us.
Mark is a very caring person. He is good with the dogs. We could not be any happier!! Thanks Mark Thanks Jim and Jean Hardy
Toki loves staying with Mark!
Mark and Jordyn took great care of Ash. They took her to the dog park daily, and sent photos daily. She got great care. Mark helped return her bowl to me when I left it there on accident as well.
He's great - cares about his pet-guests and takes them on walks and trips to the park on a regular basis - with pics!
Mark is an excellent sitter! He provides lots of picture updates, as well as a loving home. We always rest easier when we leave Toby with Mark.
Mark was a great host and provided several great pics. Will use again.
