I am a licensed, insured & certified dog trainer in the beautiful city of San Francisco. I have been working with dogs in the Bay Area since 2005 and am passionate about the work I do because I LOVE animals & know what an essential part of the family they are. I know it is not a decision that is made lightly when you choose to put your cherished family member in someone else’s hands, which is why I treat every single pet I care for as if they were my own.
I practice positive reinforcement (R+) training techniques exclusively, using established, science-based methods to reinforce desired behaviors while ensuring dogs stay happy, engaged & eager to learn. Group hikes also include regular & consistent training techniques throughout the hour long jaunt that keeps the pups participating in activities & earning payment in addition to essential runs, romps, sniffs & exploration at one of SF's many amazing local trails. Communication with clients is paramount to my operations, & I share all of your pups' experiences via text, video & email to ensure our dogs maintain good behavior both out & about & in the home. I have experience with dogs of all ages, sizes & temperaments, & if I'm not able to fulfill your specific needs, I can put you in touch with someone who can.
If you're in need of attentive, reliable & compassionate pet care - please contact me & let's set up a meet!
