I am a licensed, insured & certified dog trainer, walker & sitter in the beautiful city of San Francisco.  I have been working with pets 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 only positive reinforcement (R+) training techniques & use established, science-based methods to reinforce desired behaviors while ensuring the dog stays 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 me, & I share all of your pups' experiences with you to ensure she maintains good behavior both out & about & in the home.


Lastly, if you're going out of town & prefer to have your pet remain in their happy place, I'm able to stay in your home with your pet while you're away, & give them the doting & loving attention you always want them to have, even when you’re not there.  If you're in need of attentive, reliable & compassionate pet care - please contact me & let's set up a meet!
