About Mark

Background: I'm an animal lover through and through and have owned, rehabilitated, and rescued many pets throughout my life - dogs, cats, squirrels, birds, gerbils, rabbits, hamsters, fish, turtles and tortoises, even chickens (my house is pretty much like a farm)! I am an experienced, lifelong pet owner and in the recent years, my overwhelming love for animals and passion for understanding them has eventually brought me down the path of being a full time animal welfare activist, trainer, and behaviourist.

Currently, I'm a leader at one of the largest animal shelters in Singapore; I train both dogs and volunteers on how to train dogs, do rescues, am the resident behaviourist, and personally care for many of the furry friends. I am also the co-founder of a local Animal Welfare Group and Volunteer Welfare Organisation.

For doggy pawrents: I can handle dogs of all breeds, ages, sizes, and temperaments with experience from my work with animals, so fret not! From old and/or sick dog care, to large, energetic and/or aggressive dogs, I have spent copious amounts of time doing medical treatments and applications, rehabilitation, and training them! I offer dog sitting, grooming, walking, training, and bathing! I also work with working dogs, so if you have special needs such as jute tugs, high frequency recall whistles etc., I am able to accomodate you.

For the kitty guardians: I am able to handle both reactive/aggressive cats as well as shy and timid ones. My approach for handling cats is to adopt a stress-free one while doing any socialising, rehabilitation, and conditioning. I offer cat sitting and grooming. All of my time spent with your cat is promised to be very positive and fun experience!

I come prepared with all necessary pet accessories that you require/can think of; harness, choker chain, leads, slip leads, headcollars, muzzles, dog/cat shampoo, and even treats on the entire value spectrum, and toys! During the entire pet care experience, I will send photos and videos regularly to you by phone too.

If you're looking for the most meticulous, utmost best care for your pet, look no further! This might possibly be the last profile you would ever need to visit. I take animal work very seriously; I have a team of handlers, accounts with the best veterinary clinics in Singapore, contacts for pet transporters, and all the pet supplies you could ever need, so whether it is an emergency, or an outing, I will be able to make any and all the best arrangements for you.

Let me know what you need during my visit, talk to me about your pets and lets work something out!For a more comprehensive list of my specific skills, please see below under the "skills" section.If you require behaviour modification, training, or behaviour reinforcement/refreshers, please do let me know too. I do programs one-to-one or in group settings for communities.

Mark was recommended by another Pawshaker that we use as our regular daily dog walker. He came to meet my two rather eccentric older Indian street dogs before the actual event. He asked a lot of questions as to their behavior, eating habits, walking schedule, any disciplinary issues, and gave us advice on where to buy quality food and treats as we are new to Singapore. He arrived early and kept in constant contact with us through photos and videos on WhatsApp, which made us feel very comfortable. We highly recommend him and as we travel at least once a quarter, we plan to use him for additional long term dog sitting in the future.

I had the pleasure in enlisting Mark’s services over a long weekend. He sent plenty of updates and is prompt with communication throughout. I can also attest that he’s a compassionate animal lover! I highly recommend Mark for you and your furbabies’ needs.
