Mary Mark, UW-AAB, KPA-CTP, CPDT-KA owner/professional dog trainer/professional groomer
Mary is the owner of BowWow Fun Towne. After retiring from United States Navy with 20 years, she decided to follow her passion and love for animals. Since she has been in the Pacific Northwest since 1996, this was her home. Mary started her own pet sitting business called Walkin’ The Dogs & Pet Services in May 2006. She wanted to continue her passion so she took over ownership of BowWow Fun Towne in February 2008. She wanted a facility that provided all of your pet’s needs under one roof. In order to fulfill this desire, she went to grooming school and received her certificate as a professional pet groomer. Mary’s family consists of a daughter, husband and a dog.

Michael – Day Care Specialist
Currently, I have a German Shepherd name Scarlett. I adopted Scarlett early 2020 and training her has been exciting and challenging. As a young child, I grew up with our family Labradors, Max and Moose. I have also dog sat many time for family and friends. My dogs have taught me that life is short so you should live it well. I have worked since Aug 2018 and my favorite part of about working at BowWow Fun Towne is all the cute dogs. I get to meet and spend my day with them. During my spare time, I watch Netflix, play video games and programming. Since computer science and programming is my interest, my goal is to be a programmer for a video game company.

I love dogs so much that when a customer was not able to keep their dog, our family adopted her. Luna joined our family in 2017. Misty was my childhood dog and she was such an ease to trained. Since my employment in 2016, I have learned a lot about dog behavior and body language. Petting dogs and smothered them with love is my favorite part about working at BowWow Fun Towne. My dog, Misty, has showed me that their love is truly unconditional. She is always there when I’m sad to cheer me and she is there to play when I’m happy. She helped me understand why dogs are considered man’s best friend. When I am not working, I like to read DC comic books and watch horror movies. One day I want to finish my college education to be a Politician or a History teacher.
Sophie – Day Care Specialist
My family always had cat. In 2006, we got our first Cattle dog. Currently I live with Kitty, 11 year old cat, and Ziggy, 2 ½ year old Cattle dog. Prior to working at BowWow Fun Towne, I’ve trained and competed in agility with my dog, Ziggy. I have done day care and overnights for my friends and family. In 2016, hired to work at BowWow Fun Towne and the best part working at BowWow is getting to know all the different dog’s personality. My dog has taught me to be patience with others, working to achieve goals (such as training and agility) and the importance of socializing with other dogs. Working with your pup has highlighted how important patience and persistence are. In my spare time, I like making jewelry and making road trips. My goal is to have 4 dogs under one roof.
