The Dandy Dogwalker's structured pack walks for dogs in The Mission District of San Francisco service has been created in direct partnership with Elijah of The Working Walk, and provides 1.5-2 hours of real-world exposure, confidence-building and rehabilitation for your dog. We use a multitude of training tools and techniques to open lines of communication, to establish solid and consistent boundaries, to create strong trust bonds, and to generate accountability with and for the dogs we have 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; you and your dog dog will have a primary walker, Danielle, as well as access to the Dandy Dogwalker extended community for extenuating circumstances.

Give the gift of structured pack walks for your mini in The Mission* to your dog (and to yourself!) today!

*We are currently only offering structured pack walks for SF dogs in/around The Mission District.*

It takes a very calm, kind, special person to help energetic, independent breeds to get the most out of their walks, and Danielle has been doing this with Ed for nearly two years. We see the impact of her work to help him focus every time we take him for a walk and only wish other rescues had the great luck to have someone like Danielle in their lives!

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 Greta Tiny Dancer (who was found at 16th at Potrero 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. Presently, Danielle is a worker-owner at The Rainbow Grocery Cooperative in San Francisco; in the past, Danielle was a community/party organizer and DJ in the SF Bay Area for over a decade, as well as a hair stylist and popular jewelry designer. Danielle is SF/Bay Area born-and-raised.


Meet DANIELLE’S PACK: MINIS; IN THE MISSION, ON A MISSION

BERNIE

BREED: Shih Tzu / Pekingese / etc. | RESCUED

IG: @bernie_bear_pup

LOVES: sleeping, sniffing, lallygagging

HATES: skateboards

TESTIMONIAL: “Danielle’s Mission District structured pack walks are way more than a potty break or play time; I like to think of it as sending my dog Bernie to school three times a week! Danielle teaches the dogs to coexist with other dogs and be comfortable walking the streets of SF where we all know there are many scary distractions. Bernie HATES skateboards and Danielle makes it a point to take trips to the skate park so he can work on being calm around skateboards. When it comes to communication, Danielle gives you a peek into where the pack went and what they worked on via short handwritten notes and super cute instagram stories. I feel good knowing every M/W/F my dog gets to spend 90+ minutes out with his pack getting some exercise and learning to navigate the world. And, he is slowly becoming more calm when we hear the dreaded skateboards. Bernie and I are so lucky to have Danielle and The Dandy Dogwalker in our lives!”
