My name is Mario Perez, I am originally from Mexico City. Dogs have changed my life and it is thanks to them that I discovered my life’s purpose.
When I began walking dogs in 2003, to make some extra money, people on the streets were telling me: “Hey, you remind me of Cesar Millan, you are just like Cesar Millan…” So I was intrigued by this guy Cesar Millan . This is how I found a role model in my life and realized that, without even knowing it, I was already doing the same thing as him, that is to walk dogs in a well organized pack and solving behavioral problems.
At that moment I decided to dedicate my professional life to my best friends: the dogs. It is a beautiful story that ignited a passion that continues to this day and that gives me a purpose in life by giving dogs a space of well-being and a sense of belonging. To walk my dogs on a leash in the city or in the woods, in winter as well as in summer, is always a pleasure and a way to give back what I have learned from them: to always keep moving forward!
If you love your dog and want to give him a good life take him out as often as possible and allow him to walk in a pack with me and my dogs. More than just a walk it is a complete socializing experience!
Mario is not just Dali's dogwalker. Mario is also a member of our family for a few years now (2015), an "uncle" for Dali. He's the one that Dali excitingly awaits for every morning to go exercising, play with his dog friends and follow his preferred leader on earth, Mario. Mario is a great person, very humble and nice, he's also very professional and he has a complete trust on him! Thanks Mario for everything!
Juno, my 80 lb head-strong Vizsla mix, first started going with Mario several years ago (2012). He was a young dog and needed a structured pack walk as well as time out of the house to get rid of his excess energy. Juno wasn’t always an easy dog, but with Mario’s guidance, Juno started learning more and more, how to be in this world. I work full-time, and I don’t know how I could have managed any other way. Not too long afterwards, my little Yorkie Jinger joined in on the pack walks as well. She loved it! And of course, on those occasions when I needed to leave town, both stayed at Mario’s. I knew they would be safe and well-taken care of. To top it all off, Mario is entirely reliable and such a kind gentlemen. Thank you, Mario, for everything.
Mario has been walking my dog for a year (2017) and I am extremely satisfied with his services. I can leave Lily in the care of Mario because I know she will be safe with him. Do you want a canine specialist who is devoted, efficient, professional and attentive to you dog's need ? Contact Mario ! I highly recommend him!”
I simply cannot say enough good things about the excellence of Mario’s walking and boarding services. Mario has been helping me look after my standard poodle, Baloo, for almost all of his 10-year life (2009). Mario is totally reliable, professional, quick to respond to communications, and eager to help. Mario is exceptionally knowledgeable about dogs and totally committed to their wellbeing. He loves and respects them. And just as important to me, everyday when Mario comes for Baloo, I can see that Baloo loves Mario, too. He runs down the stairs to him, tail wagging, whining his delight to get out into the world with Mario and his pack
Mario has been taking care of Winston since he was 6 months old (2016) and is the only person I trust with my dog. You can readily see Mario’s love of animals and Winston adores him. Mario has always been able to help us out whenever we have needed him, both for walking and boarding. Thank you Mario.
