Mark graciously took in two white german shepherds from me about four years ago during a very difficult time in my life. I was unable to handle the dogs due to my situation. I contacted him recently to see how they were doing and he replied back with where each dog had been placed, the training they had received from him, and if the family had changed their names. The male, Buck, is even featured in a picture on his website in a graduating class on his website. He was a difficult puppy to handle with a strong will who didn't do well socializing with other dogs. Just look at him in the back of Mark's truck! Buck is sitting there so obedient and looks so happy next to all those other dogs! What a testament to Mark's training. It warms my heart to see Buck so happy. I just want to say that Mark is a very kind and generous person who genuinely cares about animals and people. It's not just a business to him, it's a life calling. He remembers each animal and invests in them. He said he would take my animals in, train them, and find them a home sight unseen. He did not even know me. I still remember the day I brought them to him. His attention was totally focused on them and their care. He put one on a leash and went right to work leading him around testing his skills for obedience training. I was very impressed with the attention he paid to them. I knew they would be loved and cared for in the right way. That meant the world to me. Mark is earning his angel wing

It was 2005 when I found a 3 month old black GSD and brought him home. We soon realized that we could not handle a dog that would one day be 120 pounds so we took him to MDB. Mark was always available by phone for updates and our Ranger came home a perfect gentleman. We got him a brother (another rescue) which has been to MDB here and there and we have them both groomed and boarded there - trust Mark completely We have known Mark for close to 10 years and everyone we send there has nothing but praise for him and the facility.

Our one year old Border Collie/Australian Sheppard mix just finished a six week training session with MDB. We were encouraged to make regular visits during her training and we were in contact with Mark during the entire time. She went in a good dog and now she is a GREAT dog. She is healthy and happy! We are grateful to Mark and his staff for giving us a second chance with our wonderful dog. We just could not train her ourselves and we knew she needed professional help and that is what we got from MDB. Being a "herder" and super intelligent she was not easy to train. I cannot say enough good things about Mark, his employees and the facility. They are organized, clean, courteous, professional and a very caring group of people. I will not leave my dog with anyone else from now on! I have already recommended MDB to friends who have taken their dogs to Mark and they are also extremely impressed with MDB. Thank you to Mark and his staff for being a safe haven for the dogs!

I have no idea who posted the former post, probably the owner! I sent my dog for the 2 month program(the max and suposed to be the best) they told me they would call with info on my dog, they are very unprofessional, rude, took days to return my calls! I finally heard from them at about 2 months and was told to come get my dog, picked him up he was abused and so skinny it was scary! He was worse then when he left! He chewed through dry wall, carpet, and everything in our home which he never did before! I wish my dog would have never come in contact with these people, I dont know how they are even in business! Please keep your dog as far away from this place as you can! It was just the worse experience ever!
