About Mark

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a full time musician and former dog owner. (I have had a labrador, dachshunds and a wolf hybrid (long story) over the years). I miss having pets in my life but travel too often to own one of my own. I live in a 1st floor apartment with a private back yard. My roommate is also a dog lover with a 9 to 5 job, so, he is home on the nights when I am performing. Thus, we can provide all day care either in our home, or anywhere in the Jersey City/Manhattan area. We would love to be the regular "uncles" for a local pet, or just the occasional solution for traveling "parents" in our neighborhood. Along with our yard, we are one block away from Van Vorst Park, so it is a very dog friendly area. I hope we can be of service.

Nala had a wonderful stay with Mark and Herson! She was given lots of attention and came home a happy dog. We loved all of the updates we received and were at ease knowing Nala was in good hands. They were especially flexible and accommodating when we had to order more dog food to their apartment, but Amazon didn't deliver it when they were supposed to. We definitely hope to have Nala stay with them again in the future. Thank you!
Mark was incredibly accommodating in our scheduling needs and was very proactive in learning Rascal's preferences. It was comforting to know she had around the clock company! Rascal seemed very comfortable with Mark when I picked her up. I wouldn't hesitate to have her stay with him again!
Mark & Herson were great with our pup Kiko. They kept her for a long stay (9 nights) while we were traveling. They both sent daily updates and pics and I know Kiko enjoyed their belly rubs and running around in their backyard. these guys really do like dogs and it showed. Happy to have found them and will be using them again in the future.
Mark took great care of Olive.
Mark and Herson were wonderful hosts! It was pretty evident from our initial meet and greet that they love spending time with animals and would take great care of my dog. Mark was very easy to communicate with throughout the booking process and during the stay. The prompt responses and frequent pictures/updates gave me a lot of comfort in being away.
Mark and Herson are amazing! They are very accommodating and did a great job taking care of Lily.
Mark and his room mate (Herson) are awesome, they recently took care of my babies (QT and Miky) for a week.
We had a great experience leaving our doodle with Mark. He even gave us suggestions on where to go and what to do in Manhattan during our day away from Buddy (our doodle). I would use Mark's services again if I return to the area.
Mark's attentive and relaxed atmosphere were therapeutic for our beagle Charlie!! Highly recommended for every dog lover out there... Alan & Donna Givens
Mark is a great host for my yorkie. Our dog has stayed with Mark twice so far and he loves it! Would definitely book again next time.
Mark was a wonderful host. Starbuck was her normal happy self when we got back so it was easy to tell she had a great time. Would definitely book again.
Mark and his roommate took excellent care of our cat. They stopped by frequently and spent ample time with him each day. We'll definitely book again with Mark!
