Hi! My name is Sylvia. I have volunteered at SF SPCA (adult dogs and puppies). I learned positive reinforcement training techniques that I use everyday. I have an 11-year-old Chihuahua mix, whom I adopted when she was 7. She used to be very shy, but with my training walks, she is doing much better. I am gentle with dogs, and only employ praises, treats and other force-free methods to work with your dog. When I'm walking your dog, I constantly watch his/her body language to make sure that he/she is comfortable and enjoying the walk. I always provide detailed walk reports. When appropriate, I give constructive feedback and suggestions as well. Hire me and I will treat YOUR dog like my own.

Hello, I'm Stephen! I've been an avid dog lover since the moment I was born. Since then I've been sitting, boarding, and walking all the dogs that my friends have. I have experience from Australian Shepherds to little Rat Terriers, and adore all dogs of all shapes and sizes. It's been exciting getting to know all the different personalities these little guys can bring. I believe in having fun with puppers, but also demonstrating discipline with much love.

Ignore my video, took that while I lived in LA for awhile. So I’m a pup parent with dog experience. I grew up around big dogs. As a kid, I was always told to respect dogs and treat them like children. At the moment I have two dogs of my own that are super social with other dogs and people. When we have pups over, we go on two walks a day and do lots of play time. When I do wag! Walks, I make sure to poop them out as much as possible.
