Dave Tint, Alpha Male
This job is the best one in the world--I get to spend my time outdoors with dogs on arguably the most beautiful trails on earth and, in doing so, develop and enhance my beliefs of responsibility, discipline, and compassion.
Dave Tint is our co-founder and lead Dog Walking expert. Dave’s passion for dogs is rooted early in his childhood. He was raised in Menlo Park, California with three golden retrievers; Quaker, Oatmeal, and Mandy. At 10 years old Dave got his very own dog; A Siberian husky named Shadow which he claims as his “first true love.” Dave currently lives in Tiburon with his family and Shasta. Shasta was the last dog he fostered and could not give her up.
Dave attended the University of San Francisco where he graduated cum laude with a degree in Sociology. While attending college Dave began volunteer work with dogs. He volunteered hundreds of hours over several years of service to the Marin Humane Society. His responsibilities included cleaning and disinfecting all dog kennels and restocking clean laundry and toys. During this time he simultaneously involved himself with three separate Bay Area dog and puppy fostering programs; The Marin Humane Society, Copper’s Dream, and The Milo foundation.
Dave believes that working with dogs requires, calm assertive energy accompanied with discipline and control. He attributes this mindset to his dedication to martial arts, specifically Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He teaches Brazilian Jujitsu as well as competes for Marin MMA. Dave is truly passionate about setting the standard for the dog walking industry. He says “commercial dog walking should be completely verifiable. There needs to be a set standard of operation every single day; every hike should be tracked and photographed”. To end Dave states “This job is incredibly beneficial to my life – I get to spend my time outdoors with dogs on arguably the most beautiful trails on earth and, in doing so, develop and enhance my beliefs of responsibility, discipline and compassion”.
