Born and raised on the east coast, I've made San Francisco my home since 1999. My life has always been surrounded by dogs. Growing up we always had at least 4-5 dogs. All mutts, strays, whatever needed a home; our menagerie was constantly growing and changing. When I was just 9 years old I started helping my aunt with training and grooming her champion cocker spaniels. After years of living in San Francisco without a dog of my own, I adopted Georgia Peach, a lab/kelpie mix. She rekindled a lifetime love of being with dogs, and it wasn't long before I started training. Soon after, Tired, Happy Dogs was born!
My philosophy is pretty simple-dogs look to us to set guidelines and perimeters for good behavior. It's our job to set those boundaries for them, as well as provide a ton of love and positive reinforcement. Last but not least, all dogs need an outlet for their energy. It can be tough for city dogs to get the opportunity to get the exercise they need, and that's where I come in.
I believe in reinforcing training with a firm but loving manner-my motto is there's one alpha dog in my pack and it's me! My goal is to provide your dog with an outing that includes lots of exercise, love, playtime, and good old fresh air.
At the end of the day I will bring you one Tired, Happy Dog!
