Structured Pack Walks for(but not limited to) nervous/anxious pintsize pups

About Us

STRUCTURED PACK WALKS IN THE MISSION & NEIGHBORING AREAS OF SAN FRANCISCO WITH DANIELLE

image1


1.5  -  2  hours walking time  / minimum 3 walks per week required, walking days are M/T/W/F 


The pint size pack walk program provides 1.5 - 2 hours of real-world exposure, confidence-building and rehabilitation for your small dog. Danielle uses a multitude of training tools and techniques to open lines of communication, establish solid and consistent boundaries, create strong trust bonds, and to generate accountability with and for the small dogs she has the pleasure of working with.

Pack walks can build confidence and provide time for your dog to be out in the real world in a controlled environment with other dogs, and with an experienced handler. It's important for your pup to learn and to know how to sniff around, how to meet and greet other dogs and new humans, and how to be encouraged to move through their urban worlds calmly, happily and deferentially.

Consistent boundaries and calm, communicative control are key to building trust; your dog will build trust over time with me as their handler and the pack.


Starting  at  $35  per  walk


Give the gift of structured pack walks to your pint size pup (and to yourself!) today!

Danielle is the proud primary human to a 4lb teacup chihuahua wonder named Greta Tiny Dancer (a/k/a "Tiny"), and the previous proud primary human to her beloved 90lb rottie mix named Suki (1996-2009). Danielle has been working with dogs of all sizes since she was a teenager, most recently working with Tiny who was found at 16th and Potrero in SF at around 1 year old and 2-3 pounds! To integrate Tiny into a bustling city life that previously made her reactive and sometimes aggressive, Danielle slowly but surely made progress with Tiny Dancer, acclimating her to city life by taking her everywhere and giving her heaps of exposure. Danielle also had guidance and help from The Working Walk and The Dandy Dogwalker, where she was introduced to the magic of pack walks  and the transformative effect they have on nervous reactive dogs. The small dog specific pack walk program that pint size offers was built out of wanting to see more dogs like tiny, transform and heal. Presently, Danielle is an independent dog walker in SF, CA, and is bonded and insured by pet sitters associates. She started walking independently in the fall of 19’ and named her business pint size to celebrate and emphasize her already stellar and growing client base of pint size pups (some of whom have been walking with her for almost 5 years!). Danielle is also currently enrolled in the metalsmithing program at City College of San Francisco (and is taking other art classes too!) ; in the past, Danielle worked walking dogs for The Dandy Dogwalker - a company founded in Brooklyn with a Bay Area chapter. Danielle also previously, was a community/party organizer and DJ in the SF Bay Area for over a decade, as well as a worker/owner at Rainbow Grocery Cooperative . Danielle is SF/Bay Area born-and-raised.
