I had never used any type of service to look after my dog. When I contacted Northeast Philadelphia Pet Sitting & Pet Care & met Mark Taplar I knew right away my Black Labrador would be in great hands. Over the two week period we saw nothing less than outstanding service, coupled with the superb love & caring for my dog. The highest rating we can give is 5 stars, but I rate them a 10!!
Mark has made my first experience with a new puppy possible. I am a teacher and until I was off for the summer Mark came to my home twice a day to take care of my two pound Yorkie named Benji. Not only did he meet with my family on his own time to gain our trust, he sent me pictures daily so I could feel at ease at work. Mark spoke with me on the phone many times giving me advice and letting me know how Benji was doing. He also set me up with an amazing puppy plan at the vet and I even ran into Mark and his dog there! Mark is very caring and knowledeable. I will certainly be using Mark's services again. Thanks Mark!
Mark is an excellent person our pets could tell right away he is an animal friendly person. Mark is a trustworthy person to hire to look after your pets and your home if you need someone to pet/house sit! We are very happy we found Mark!
Mark is reliable, personable and great with Buddy
Mark was terrific, was on-time for all of his sessions with Blue and provided updates after each session. I highly recommend Mark and he will be my first call when needing a dog Sitter in the future. Thanks Mark!
Mark is an awesome petsitter! I called him on short notice to take care of my two rambunctious dogs over a weekend before the fourth of July. Not only was he very responsive and timely, he adapted to my dogs in no time. He provided excellent care, spent extra time playing with them over and above the walks, and kept me posted by text message so I had piece of mind while away. This was my first experience with a sitter, and I will never use a kennel again. I'd recommend Mark to anyone!
We are from out of town and needed a last minute pet sitter in Philadelphia. Naturally, we were very nervous about leaving our pet with a complete stranger. But alas, Mark is kind and gentle and helped us to feel completely comfortable from the get-go. We received a text message update and pictures of our pet which just proves the care and effort that he puts into his business. We were very impressed and would strongly recommend his services to anyone.
Mark was awesome with our dog Laney! We have searched for a long time for a person we trust with our dog and Mark exceeded our expectations. His gentle nature was a perfect match for our beagle! In addition he coordinated so well with my 86 year old mom (where Laney was staying while we were out of town). He is dedicated and earnest and we fully intend to use Mark for walks whenever we have to be out of the city. We recommend him fully!
Mark visited our home every day and took care of our 2 cats for a week while we were away on vacation. He was very trustworthy and kind to our cats. He sent us pictures every day so we knew they were ok. We will definitely use him again in the future when we are traveling. Highly recommend him for your pet visit or pet walking needs!
