Z Pet Hotel & Spa owner Mark Edwards has loved animals since he was a kid and has been working with animals professionally for over 40 years. A skilled dog trainer and long-time business owner, the successful operation of Z Pet Hotel & Spa is his passion.
When he arrived in Santa Fe in 2001, Mark started as a dog trainer at Paw Print Kennels and soon became the owner of that business as well as Pet Guardian. After running two locations in town for a time, in 2008 he consolidated both businesses into one location and changed the name to Z Pet Hotel & Spa.
Mark takes great pride in giving our clients a top-notch experience and works continuously to develop a positive, supportive, and team-based environment. According to Mark, "We really appreciate the support our locally-owned business receives from the community and hope we are providing an important service."
