Wish I could give more than five stars. We scheduled another successful week long stay for our senior French bulldog. Boy was she happy to see Mark and his pack again. .. His pups are all so well behaved and socialized she instantly becomes part of their Big Dog House family. I think she has far more fun when we're gone!!! A Big Dog House is much more than your average doggy day care service, its doggy day care on steroids. With regular updates, attention to special dietary needs, one on one personal care and not to mention the pick up/drop off service it makes leaving the country stress free.  Mark is most definitely our go to guy!

I called Mark and he set up a dog walk for the next day! He's helping me socialize my rescue chihuahua who barks and lunges at every dog he sees, I've had two walks so far and my dog is definitely a work in progress but I look forward to continuing walks with Mark! He is also very reasonable priced which is hard to find in LA! More...

I have a Chihuahua and Dachshund he picks them up every morning and take them for walks brings them back he even brings food sometimes my dogs look forward to meeting him every morning and they're so excited,The best part is We went on vacation twice and left the key to my home with Mark and he is so trustworthy honest and he goes above and beyond to care for my dogs I truly recommend him to anyone! I don't know what We would have done without his help he really is amazing! More...

Recommend this dog sitting spot to anyone living in the valley. I've used the services several times and could tell you this place separates its self from the others. . The person who runs it is Mark who's incredibly friendly and very knowledgable in puppy training and behavior issues commonly seen on pups. I give this place 5 Stars cause it really earned it.

My puppy loves coming here. Mark, aka McGoo, has taught Tic Tac how to walk better on the leash. Currently working with him on being non aggressive with other dogs. So far he is making great progress. More...

I was in a pinch and needed someone responsible that could watch my 6 month old pup. I read several reviews on Yelp and Mark was the first to return my call. He was traveling back to LA and he was willing to come pick up my puppy once he landed in LA. He took great care of him and really worked with him to help alleviate his lack of social skills. In addition, he was more than fair on the rate he charged me too. Mark "Magoo" will always be my first choice to watch my dog anytime I need boarding. He's a great sitter and its clearly obvious he cares about what he does. Thanks again Magoo! More...

I was fortunate enough to share a plane ride with this man and it became immediately clear that he is a spirit BORN to do this. I saw videos of the happiest dogs playing on the land, and saw McGoo watching these videos with me through the eyes of a proud father. I am so grateful to finally have met someone whom I feel is even far above the caliber of person I would trust to share my own pups with.  I vote 100% on McGoo. There's no other way to put it than YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!! More...

On one the most caring animal sitters I've ever known. He's good with all breeds and all temperaments. Whether you need McGoo to just house your pet for a day, or longer, they will come home exercised and well socaialized Can't recommend him highly enough!

Mark is a godsend. When I was in the 11th hour of trying to rehome my wonderful pitbull Jax, Mark came through huge for us. He sat with me and listened while I told him my situation and was so helpful. He showed me his facilities and all the dogs in his care. He was so knowledgeable and in tune with the dogs it was amazing. We were able to work out a long term situation with Jax in which he spent time working with Jax and correcting a few minor behaviors before we reached rehoming situation.  After a few weeks and a few meet and greets with potential new owners, Mark found a great home for Jax. Awesome! Mark is not your average dog sitter. He is So much more! He really understands dogs, and even more he understands people. Great guy and highly recommended! More...

Mark is wonderful.  I had never left our dog with someone before and was a nervous wreck.  Carlos came back groomed, happy, calmer and a bit tired because Mark had obviously walked him, ran him, played with him. ..  I call Mark, Carlos' shrink...  I'm so happy that this Christmas I won't have to worry about what to do with Carlos.  I know he's in good hands.  Thanks, Mark!

I had a beautiful old golden who needed some daytime walks and tender loving care.   Two film industry producers I knew recommended Pooch Watchers.  I was impressed with Mark's passion and commitment to training and helping me improve Sadie's overall happiness and energy.  Mark quickly assessed what was missing in Sadie's daily routine after we talked.  He had observed the areas where she mainly roamed and took note where there could be improvements made. After making the few changes Mark suggested I noticed that she was happier and more friendly when we had vistors come to the house. Thanks Pooch Watchers. More...
