What’s better than a happy dog’s face?
Hi! I'm Jeannine. Thanks for visiting my page. After my getting my MBA, my career in finance quickly put me on the path to burnout. I decided to take some time off and I got my first dog, Bo.
See, my whole career change started because of him. Nothing at work could compare to his happy face when we were out. (Is there anything better anywhere?)
We would go on daily, fun-filled adventures to the beach at Fort Funston. We had the time of our lives, but my heart sank as I wondered:
What would I do when I went back to work? How could I make sure Bo was having a great life? How could I find a dog walker who would go the extra mile(s) with my dog—and make sure he’s getting everything he needs?
Then I realized…that person could be me. I could do it for others too. This could be a viable business. So I made the leap and started K9 Fitness.
My goal was to take dog walking in San Francisco to new heights; to provide an option for dog owners who wanted (so much!) more than the bare minimum so their dogs could truly be happy, fit, social and well-balanced.
That’s why I decided our adventures should not only be longer, but also more fun. The dogs get at least 90 minutes of off-leash playtime, exploration and exercise each day. I try to make our outings special and unique. From fetch and other games to costumes and just running free, I try to capture your dog’s happiness in pics for you to see each night when you come home. In addition to off leash play time, dogs practice basic obedience and learn proper socialization skills. And they get plenty of love, attention and petting!
Pretty much, I created the business that I wished existed when I needed it.
I’m so grateful for my amazing clients and their incredible dogs who enable me to fulfill my true calling.
I’m excited to hear about your dog. Let’s talk.
