I really can’t say enough good things about Mark’s dog walking service, reliability, and excellent animal care. He has been walking my Chihuahua (pictured here mugging it up for the camera and wagging her tail!) for several years, day-in and day-out, without fail. I never have to worry about my pup because Mark is so reliable and keeps an eye out for her. He takes a genuine interest in every dog/cat he cares for. He has my house keys, and my pup and I consider him a trusted friend. It’s really rare to find someone who you can rely on like that these days.My pup has a “Napoleon complex”, and so she tends to be skittish, sometimes aggressive towards big dogs. Mark is very careful and cautious with her, ensuring she gets the socialization she needs with other friendly neighborhood dogs, but not exposing her to uncomfortable situations.Mark is also a very talented photographer; some of the best pics of I have of my Chi girl came from Mark (at no charge). He has surprised me by capturing both hilarious and very sweet moments of my pup doing her thing! Anyone who is fortunate to be in the area to avail of Mark’s dog walking and pet care services is lucky!!
I’ve been using Mark as my pet sitter on out of town trips since moving to the area six months ago. From our first meeting, I could tell that Mark truly loves his job and animals. He’s extremely reliable and responsive and truly loves my two kitties. An added bonus is some of the best pics of my boys have come from Mark!
We adopted our sweet puppy when she was only 10 weeks old. We were nervous being first time dog owners, but Mark reassured us. Before we even brought our puppy home, he told us that he would be there for her and for us. He used to visit her twice a day when she was little. He has given us so many helpful tips that we appreciate as first time dog owners, from helping us potty train to teaching her fun tricks. Mark is super reliable and has always been there for us in these past 2 years. Mark has really become a part of the family. Our dog is always so excited when Mark walks through the door! We love having him around and feel so blessed that he is a part of our lives. He has never let us down.
We have used Mark for several years now. He walks our two dogs three times a week, he also does overnight visits when we on vacation.Mark looks after our 2 dogs and 2 cats and they all love him. Mark can be trusted to give medication when your pets are under the Vets care.Mark is honest, trustworthy, responsive and super reliable, come rain or shine Mark is always there for our pets.Mark’s prices are very reasonable. He spends time with our pets playing with them and generally making them happy when we are away on vacation. You are not paying just for a walk or an overnight visit, you are paying for someone who cares about animals.I would not hesitate to recommend Mark and his services to anyone. His caring attitude and hard work is great to see and he deserves all of the recognition and help that he can get along the way to building his business........great work Mark keep it up.
First to ReviewI have an EXTREMELY active dog and live in a townhouse. I had another dog walker who had to leave town for an emergency and had to scramble for a substitute. I came across Mark on the internet. He came to our house and did a very thorough interview. Our little terrior/minpin mix can be aggressive towards men sometimes but this didn’t phase him a bit. He was relaxed and gave her time to calm down and after a few treats, she really warmed up to him. I was very concerned about hiring someone who would follow through with the obedience training I had worked so hard on. Mark not only did this, but he gave me reports on how she was responding as well as the occasional email with pics. A few weeks in, my husband even commented that our dog seemed more well behaved since Mark had been walking her. On top of it all, his rates are fantastic! He really seems to love what he does and I would love to see him gather more clients. He recently moved across the valley to Clayton and could use some more clients out here!
We love having Mark for our two babies, Eva and Mia. We get regular updates on how they, and our other (no walk needed) pets are doing. He is quick to respond to my questions and has offered a wealth of advice when we found ourselves unsure in a pet related matter. He is always great about accomodating our schedules if we need switch a day or time and gives pdf. copies of his bills for easy record keeping. My family has always felt comfortable having him in our home and we thank all the fellow Yelpers for helping us to find someone so wonderful for our four leged friends.
This is my second review, and I’m still very happy after a couple years of Mark coming by to spend time with my cats when I am out of town. Not only is Mark trustworthy, he is honest and caring, and very flexible with short notice. But best of all, my cats love him. If I were an insecure person, I would think they look somewhat disappointed when I arrive home and walk through the door :) He is that good.Many of his reviews are filtered. Perhaps it is because they are from people who only have one or possibly two reviews on Yelp...like myself.
Simply the best! Mark has been our dog walker for the past five years or so. We appreciate his overall dog/cat/pet knowledge (which is extensive) and his friendly and caring demeanor. Very fair and reasonable pricing. Our dog literally waits for the “Mark Sound” when he comes to take her to the dog park and it is her favorite part of the day. I would also trust him with a key to my home, which is saying something about his trustworthiness and professionalism. You won’t be disappointed and neither will your doggy!
