SF Dog Pack - San Francisco, CA
Sf Dog Pack employs evidence based R+ training techniques. Walking nicely on leash. Basic manners, puppy prep, adult manners, barking, destruction, aggression and anxiety. I can help you with any problem you are having with your dog. If I can not help you I can refer you to someone who can. I have been studying positive rewards based dog training for 12 years beginning with the rehabilitation of my own #60 pit bull who barked and lunged on leash. I attended the Canine Behvaiour Academy at the Marin Humane Society in 2008 and The Dog Training Internship Academy in 2020. I regularly attend lecture, seminars and conferences and I will continue my education throughout my life, as more science of dog training comes in.
I am a proud and faithful member of the Pet Professional Guild, which has the highest standards of companion animal care. I pledge to never: yank, yell, shock, kick (yes, it happens), use prongs, or choke collars in any manner to control or train your dog. Not only are these not effective, they can be dangerous to both dog and human. I adhere to the Humane Hierarchy and LIMA standards of practice in my work with dogs and people. :-)
I have owned and operated my dog business www.sfdogpack.com for the past 20 years, with 5 star reviews! Let me help you and your dog enjoy your lives more! Happy Dogs, Happy People. Sf Dog Pack. check out my facebook page too!

What year did you begin serving pets?
How did you hone your craft?
Began with behavior rehabilitation of my own dog, Goldie. Next I studied with Trish King at the Marin Humane Society. Have attended various APDT conferences over the years and currently am attending the Dog Training Internship Academy in SF, CA. I am always studying and learning more as more science comes in about dog (and people) learning!
What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?
Reinforce, reinforce, reinforce. If you want a certain behavior reinforce it. If you don't want a certain behavior, reinforce somethig else. It really is that simple y'all. :-)
What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!
In my spare time I am a singer/song writer, and painter. kytha.com I began my dog career as a dog walker in SF in 1999, as a way to supplement my art. It's still that but has become so much more. I love to learn, and I love to watch others (both canine and homo sapien) learn. Fun times!
