Mark's background in dog training started back in the mid 80's training hunting dogs as a hobby. While working for corporate companies and training dogs, his hobby and passion for dog training grew into a full time career. In 2007 he opened the doors to Mill Pond Kennels becoming a professional trainer specializing in waterfowl hunting dogs, dog obedience and dog boarding.
Since Mark expanded his dog training services to help change people's lives. He founded a 501c3 organization named Rescued Abilities Project to enable him to help veterans and first responders obtain training for their dogs free of charge.
