OC Pup Scouts was founded in 2015 with the idea that structured pack walks can provide something that a daycare facility or your average dog walker cannot. Owner Michael Bass has put his natural way with dogs to use with the goal of providing our community with a better and more trusted option for our 4 legged best friends.
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 same face 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.
WHO WE ARE
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 dog walking service in Orange County. When he's not working with dogs, you'll find him out with his dog Camden and beautiful wife Mrs. Pup Scout, petting stranger's dogs, and watching videos of dogs! Other than dogs, some of his favorite times are spent on camping trips or watching his favorite sports teams.
Pack Leader & Social Media Manager
Native to snowy upstate New York, Jamie has always been crazy about dogs. In 2016, after many years in retail management, she left retail and winter behind to move to beautiful Southern California. Once here she discovered that dog walking combined her two true passions, dogs and the outdoors! When she's not having fun adventuring with your pups, she's drawing, buying (more) plants, and snacking.
Pack Leader & Events Manager
Jayme came to us all the way from the East Coast. Although she is new to California, she is not new to dogs. Jayme has two fur babies of her own (Moses and Teddy), so when the opportunity to basically become a full-time dog mom came about, she ditched the office life and came to work for Pup Scouts loving all the pups in her pack as her own.
Cole grew up in sunny Orange County loving the beach and the outdoors. After many years in the hospitality industry as a bartender, he decided he was ready for a change. Having a fur baby of his own, Ryder, he decided to follow his passion of working with dogs and join OC Pup Scouts. When he's not walking dogs, you can find him at his local climbing gym or loving on his pup Ryder. His dream is to open up a dog shelter of his own one day!
Born and raised in Maine with labs and golden retrievers, Jordan moved to Orange County two years ago to work for the Los Angeles Kings. When he's not walking his pack, you can catch him on the ice at Staples Center during games. Jordan couldn't be happier to be surrounded each day by wonderful dogs and dog lovers!
