CHANDLER, AZ – “Mak Pack Dog Training and Boarding” just opened its second location and it has a great indoor dog park! “Aesthetically it looks about as good as a resort…except, you know, our priorities are the dogs and not the people,” said owner Spencer Mak.
Services and amenities offered here include: dog park, dog daycare, boarding, Bark & Bougie (which are private suites), dog training, dog grooming and private event hosting .
PRECAUTIONS TAKEN IN THE INSTALLATION
According to the owner, the indoor dog park is fully staffed; team members assess, monitor and even do temperament tests.
“Before any of the dogs can even enter our current park, we check their vaccination records ahead of time,” Spencer Mak said. “It’s kind of how strict we are because that’s where we’re going to create our dilation from a traditional kind of free city dog park. [to] a transition to the type of our membership, the type of organized experience of [an] indoor dog park.”
COST FOR THE DOG PARK
- Weekday day pass price: $15, additional dogs $10

YEARS OF CREATION
The business is locally owned and operated. For the married couple, Spencer & Lauren Mak, the opening of their second store makes a lot of sense as it’s another step towards something they have done with great purpose.
According to Spencer Mak, he has spent the past 15 years in Arizona training therapy and assistance dogs; he says his experience and care over the years helped create this new facility.
The property’s daycare offers extended hours and their boarding services are 24/7, which means there is always someone to look after the dogs.
