Pono loves Kristen! Here she is getting ready for doggie beachJan 24, 2018
My puppy, clementine, loves spending the day with dog wild. Their professionalism and compassion for dogs shows in everything they do. I recommend asking about the off leash pack adventure if you need dog walking services. Your dog will come back tired, socialized, and happy. They even send awesome photo updates!!Jan 22, 2018
Kristen is great with my timid Sheltie, Helen. She knows just what to do to bring Helen out of her shell. I’m very thankful and grateful to Kristen for taking such good care of my dog.Jan 22, 2018

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We specialize in off-leash pack walks and private leashed walks. Dog Wild can tailor each service to fit you and your canine's busy schedules and unique requirements. Our promise to you is that each adventure will involve quality care, observation, and exercise. We offer more than a walk around the block, but a chance for your dog to engage their senses and stimulate their mind and body. All services include a daily field trip report. Off-leash adventures include free shuttle service to an off-leash park and back home.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Kristen majored in animal behavior psychology at the University of Washington in Seattle. She was able to study plenty of animal behavior at the dog day care she worked at in college, taking care of 40+ off-leash dogs a day in a fast-paced environment. Her animal career continued on after college, working as a dog walker, primate caregiver, kitten nursery technician at the San Diego Humane Society and eventually a Zookeeper at the San Diego Zoo working with monkeys, lemurs, otters, and more. Justine studied Ecology and Environmental Biology at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, and soon after, completed her Master’s degree in Biology. She has worked with multiple conservation organizations across the U.S. and Africa like Palm Beach Zoo, San Diego Zoo Global, Cheetah Conservation Fund and Penduka Trust in Namibia, Africa. She has over five years of professional shelter experience at San Diego Humane Society working with domestic pets, in wildlife rehabilitation and wearing many different hats. She is also a part of the Special Response Team assisting in disaster response across the United States – most recently assisting the ASPCA and CDC with an influenza outbreak in the felid population in NYC.
