Experience meets enthusiasm

I love helping dogs and their people live their best lives together. I have spent the majority of my adult life caring for the companion animals of this town.

Tails of the City was formed in 1993 when professional dog walking was so new that even "The City’s" legendary raconteur, Herb Caen wrote about us. We helped establish this industry as an accepted part dog owning life in San Francisco and we are still here to hoping that your dog will be our next best buddy.

As the owner of both Tails of the city and Sunset Pet Supply, I offer many years of insight on what dogs need to thrive, including training, nutrition and natural remedies for illness.

I am a dad who loves music, working with animals, mentoring young people and sailing on the bay.
I am very proud of the work we do and I hope to meet you and your dog soon.

Meet the team

A dog walking service’s life blood is the care and passion it's walkers bring to their job. I am so proud of my team, because they bring not only their experience to the business, but their hearts as well. They are awesome dogwalkers, becuase they are first awesome human beings. You will find them to be kind, friendly, articulate and intelligent.  They are the secret sauce that make Tails of the city rock and I can’t wait for you to meet them.
