We know that you have many options for the care of your pet, but none deliver the amazing results that you will see with OC Pup Scouts. Our adventures provide structure and positive reinforcement in a pack environment, allowing your dog to learn and form positive relationships with our staff and other pups.
OC Pup Scouts' selective hiring process and intensive staff training program ensure that your dog is given the best possible care and attention, and your dog will feel comfortable and excited to see the familiar faces picking them up each day.
Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of your dog. Before joining OC Pup Scouts, each new dog meets with our team to make sure that they will be a good fit for the pack and that all of their health records are up to date.

Owner & Chief of Dog Morale
Michael, a University of Maryland graduate (Go Terps) born and raised in Baltimore, left the East Coast for sunshine and dogs in 2014. His huge heart for dogs led him to create OC Pup Scouts after seeing the need for a trustworthy and personalized pack dog walking service in Orange County. He enjoys paddle boarding with his dog Camden and spending time with his wife, Mrs. Pup Scout and baby boy Julian. His ideal adventure would be taking his Jeep somewhere remote for a camping weekend!
Born and raised in Orange County, Hayley joined Pup Scouts in May of 2020, after 7 years as a Project Manager for a local custom homebuilding company. Proud dog mom to black lab, Maverick, she now looks forward to spending every day with him and many other pups at work. If Hayley were a dog, she would be a golden retriever due to her gentle and fun-loving nature.
Mark joined Pup Scouts in March of 2020 but has been working with dogs since 2017. In his free time, Mark can usually be found in the gym as he used to be a strength and conditioning coach. He loves to cook and his favorite foods are wings and seafood! His favorite part about working with Pup Scouts is seeing the happy smiles and wagging tails when he comes to pick up the dogs each morning!
A Southern California native, Sammy returned home in May of 2020 after graduating from the University of Houston where she played soccer. She loves the outdoors, going to the beach, playing soccer, and hanging out with friends and family. Sammy is a huge animal lover and getting to work with dogs puts a smile on her face.
A Southern California local, Hope moved back to OC after living in Australia for the last year. A few weeks into living abroad she got Dezy, her GSD. She decided to turn her love for dogs into a career and joined our team in September 2020. You can find Hope (and Dezy) hiking, swimming or on the beach. One of Hopes bucket list items is to have a house full of dogs one day because they bring so much joy and laughter.

Born and raised in Costa Mesa, Logan has never known life without a family dog. Ranging from Golden Retrievers, to Collies, and even a Corgi! He grew up with such a fondness for dogs, that he enjoyed reading dog encyclopedias in his spare time. Graduating from the University of Oregon in 2015, he returned back to his hometown with his Golden Retriever, Cooper. Logan’s passion shows in his walks every day, and he strives to bring each dog as much joy as they bring him.
