My Story

My name is Dani Agnew and I am a dog trainer, walker, and cat lover based in Oakland, CA. I got my start working with animals through my love of horses. I spent a couple years volunteering for Zenerosity, a non-profit  that provides equine assisted mental health therapy services. I enjoyed my time working with the therapy horses so much I quickly found myself working with dogs as well. In 2019 I completed the Dog Walking Academy through DogBiz. I continued to study independently and shadowed positive reinforcement trainers while I built my walking business.

 

In 2021 I completed the Dog Training Internship Academy of San Francisco and became a CTBC (Certified Trainer & Behavior Consultant). I am committed to continued education to ensure that I am up to date on latest science in humane force-free training.

 

In 2022 I completed Kim Brophy’s L.E.G.S. Program and became a certified Family Pet Mediator. I am also enrolled in a mentorship program with Sara Scott CDPT-KA.

When I’m not out with dogs on the trail or training I love reading, yoga, playing guitar, and cuddling with my cat, Virgil.
