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 2023 I completed Julie Naismith's Separation Anxiety course and became a certified SA Pro.
In 2023 I completed the Dynamic Dog Practitioner course becoming a licensed specialist in canine posture and gait analysis.
When I’m not out with dogs on the trail or training I love reading, yoga, playing guitar, and cuddling with my cat, Virgil.
