Antonia Bartels

Antonia Bartels is a professional dog walker and trainer in San Francisco. She has dedicated her life to strengthening the bond between pets and their people through friendly and positive training. It is her belief that with consistent, fun training and exercise, less dogs will end up in shelters.

 Antonia has gone through several dog training apprenticeships, and well as an intensive 4-day dog walking certification program. She is well versed in pack management skills, positive training practices, and continues to seek out new information on how to better understand the canines we spend our lives with.

In her free time, Antonia continues training her Australian Cattledog mix, Emma to be a better Canine Citizen. She also remains an active participant in dog rescue, occasionally fostering dogs before they find their forever homes. Antonia is also a classically trained Illustrator and Fine Artist and can be seen tinkering away on small nature illustrations and pet portraits - when she can find the time!
