My clients are long term and so is my relationship with both the dogs and owners. I provide consistency and boundaries on my walks which are important for a well balanced dog. I have a strong impact on the dogs obedience, social skills, as well as over all personality and am skilled in working with your dog for the best possible outcome. The dogs get off-leash freedom with me but are taught to be responsible with that freedom. They are taught what is appropriate behavior. Not to mention all the exercise! We have fun, a lot of fun, we play hard and it shows when your dog comes home tired. The dogs I walk are healthy, active, well behaved, trained, and well taken care of. Having one consistent walker and consistent playmates creates a great pack of great dogs!
All About Paws is owned and operated by Angela Gardner. It is my mission to provide responsible, dependable, loving, safe, active, and fun care for your dog. You may view videos of a typical play group dog walk on my YouTube videos page. References are available upon request. You may also read comments from current clients on my Testimonials page. All About Paws is a licensed and insured business. I implement fun and learning into my time with your dog. Nothing makes me happier than improving the quality of life for dogs! I don't just walk your dog, I provide an experience that is mentally and physically stimulating.
I had the honor of meeting Mayor Ed Lee when he signed the Dogwalker Permit Legislation for the City of San Francisco because I was a contributor. Article on the signing: SF signs dog walker regulations into law.
If I am not walking dogs I am doing my other passion, stand up paddling (SUP), and yes, I take the dogs to do that too! If I'm not on the water then I'm home watching the game.

My dog Chico made the cover of the book 'San Francisco Dogs' and is featured as a San Francisco dog and I am featured as his human. Available at Crissy Field's Warming Hut and on Amazon here.
