Mark A. Basso

Mark is a 31 year old entrepreneur originally from Morristown, New Jersey. He graduated from Montclair State University in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in History. While obtaining his degree, one of Mark's part time jobs was a dog walker. During this time, he realized that his real passion was for animals. From that point moving forward, he committed himself to the pet care industry. He first learned of the logistics of the business through the company that he was a dog walker for. After ten years of time, hard work, and dedication, he now owns and operates his own pet care company better known as PAWZ. PAWZ is a pet care business that covers the territory of New Providence and other nearby areas. PAWZ's commitment is to provide the utmost care for the pets and the pet families within PAWZ.

Mark has watched our dog for almost a year. In this time he has had multiple medical concerns. Ranging from very serious to minor. Each event was handled with professionalism and compassion. I never thought twice about leaving Mark in charge. I am a nurse so I am tough to please!!! It seems his answer to a request for visits is never met with a no, and he makes every attempt to cover the time he may be away. I trust him in my home without question. My dog loves him, I often wish I was here to see his reaction when Mark comes to walk him!! I have nothing but good things to say and would recommend Mark to anyone.

Mark has been such a joy to work with—not only is he a fantastic dog walker for our Maggie dog, but a really quality small business owner to interact with. He is super professional, prompt and caring of our dog.
