The Panting Pooch
About this pro
The Panting Pooch is a graduate of the dog*tec Dog Walking Academy which means that I have been educated in Canine behavior and learning theory and pack management. The Panting Pooch also renews its certification in pet first aid & CPR through PetTech. The Panting Pooch also uses The City of San Francisco's ideal vehicle transportation methods to ensure the safety of your pooches during transportation. The Panting Pooch individually crates each pooch during transportation so your pooch is safer during transportation. A dog's walk is often times the highlight of its day. I get to provide your dog with some of best times of its life. There is nothing more fulfilling than being surrounded by the joy of dogs engaged in play.
