Meet Emi Tringali

Owner, Founder, and Administrator of Sniff and Go, LLC

In 2021, Emi attended the Dog Training Internship Academy to learn about positive reinforcement dog training and animal behavior. But Emi’s experience in the dog walking industry didn’t start there. 

After attending San Diego State University, her passion for animals plus an education in business, led to the pursuit of owning her own business. April 2009 was the official Grand Opening of Sniff and Go LLC!

After the pandemic severely affected the business in 2020, it was then that Emi decided to attend the academy and further her understanding of dog behavior. Her experience there kicked off the start of a whole new journey into the science behind dog behavior and ways to better serve the dog parents of San Francisco! 

Since then Emi has taken a step back from walking pups herself, but now invests her time in training and supporting the employees of Sniff and Go to be the best dog walkers in San Francisco.

Emi and her husband, Paul, currently live in San Francisco, CA, with their SFUSD elementary school son, and their two adopted shelter dogs, Dillinger and Lafawnduh.

Meet The Walking Team

Paul T.

SNIFF AND GO CO-OWNER

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by and taking a moment to get to know our crew here at Sniff and Go. My name is Paul and I have been able to call Professional Dog Walking my passion since 2010.

Being a San Francisco native, I am able to easily navigate our doggo friends throughout all the well known (and not so well known:)) sniffs of The City.

When it comes to our feline friends, there’s nothing better than the purrs and play time that comes from kitties that know they can trust our care.

I look forward to meeting you!

Tatiana G.

TEAM LEAD

Hi, I’m Tatiana! I am a born and raised native of the Bay Area. I grew up with all kinds of animals from dogs to lizards to hamsters. I have loved animals all my life and knew I wanted to work with them since I was a kid. My family currently consists of two dogs, two cats, and an aquarium of guppies. I love walking and hiking with my dogs whenever I can!

I have been a dog trainer since 2017 and am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer through the Council of Certified Professional Dog Trainers, a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, and a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. I am constantly seeking more education and knowledge on how to better the lives of the dogs I work with. I strive to stay up-to-date with the ever-evolving dog world, ensuring I am well-informed about the latest advancements. By doing so, I aim to empower those around me with the knowledge I have gained, making a positive difference in the lives of dogs and their owners.

I can’t wait to work with you and your pup!

Becky

CERTIFIED DOG PROFESSIONAL

Hello, I’m Becky!

I’m a Bay Area Native, and even lived in Santa Cruz for a while. I’ve been blessed with having strong bonds with many animals, especially dogs, whom come in and out of my life. For three years, I was employed by the SFSPCA as an Animal Care Associate, and first-handedly experienced how to treat shelter dogs and cats with FreeFear and positive reinforcement training. During my time with the SFSPCA allowed me to hone in on animal behavior, communication. Currently, I’m practicing these skills with my Shepard pup, Ollie, allowing him to have a freer and happier life one wants for their furry companion(s).

One of my favorite quotes, “A happy dog is a tired dog.”

Isaac

DOG PROFESSIONAL

Hello, my name is Isaac!

I recently moved to San Francisco from Washington, DC where I was born and raised. I graduated from CU Boulder in the spring of 2022 and have spent my time since then traveling and working with dogs!

My love for dogs and animals, in general, knows no limits. I have lived with dogs for my whole life and truly believe they are man’s best friend. Ever since I started dog walking and dog care I have not wanted to do anything else, I feel it is a great way to provide much-needed services to pets and pet parents, as well as a great way to explore and enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

I look forward to meeting you and your furry friends soon!

SARINA

DOG PROFESSIONAL

Hi! My Name is Sarina.

I am a Bay Area native, born and raised. My love for dogs started at a very young age and that love only continues to grows.

Dog health and wellness is a passion of mine, and understanding, just like humans that every dog has it own special needs and wants is something I strive for when building a bond and relationship with each dog I interact with.

Dog walking helps create physical and mental health for both human and dog which is a big plus in my book!

A fun fact about me is, I can play the drums (I may be a bit rusty now).

Being outdoors is always my goal for the day, I love searching for new trails or hikes and spend my off days with my pup going up and down highway 1 finding new beaches, towns and food while enjoying our 1×1 time together.

I am also a self-proclaimed “foodie” and love to find and recommend good eats to family and friends!

SASHA

DOG PROFESSIONAL

Hello! My name is Sasha.

I was born and raised in San Francisco. I have been a positive reinforcement dog trainer since 2022 and am a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants.

I have loved animals for as long as I can remember and have owned several kinds (rabbits, birds, lizards and dogs). Dogs have always held a special place in my heart. I love spending time playing and training with my two rescue dogs named Luna and Ren. Dogs are my passion and I love learning new information about them.

I look forward to learning about your pup!!!

DOG PROFESSIONAL

Hello, my name is DeAnne!

I am a 6th generation native of San Francisco. I just love this City and know it well. I have been a dog-walking professional for the past 8 years and can’t imagine my days doing anything else.  I enjoy working outdoors with canines and find this career so rewarding and fulfilling.

I enjoy weightlifting, long walks, reading in the park, spending time with my children, and going to random movies I know nothing about.

I’m excited to meet you and work with your pet .. Very happy to be part of the Sniff and Go team!

Emma

DOG PROFESSIONAL

Hello, I’m Emma!

I was raised in Brentwood, CA, and recently moved to San Francisco. As a big animal lover, I have cared for numerous pets as a part of my family: Dogs, Cats, and Rabbits over the years. I greatly enjoy spending my time being around animals, whether that is playing games with cats indoors or going on walks and hikes with my family’s dogs. Having moved I no longer live with the pups that I have grown accustomed to caring for, and now I look forward to caring for your furry family just as I have my own!

My favorite thing about dogs is getting to know their personality, just like people each furry friend is completely unique, and getting to know them is a true treat for me. Learning what makes each pup comfortable and excited to play and learn is an experience I am truly grateful to have as a career.

A fun fact about me is that I am a ceramic artist so I spend a lot of my free time in the studio creating wheel-thrown pottery. Additionally being new to San Francisco I am constantly exploring the city, walking the hills, and checking out new scenes as often as I can.

Sniff and Go’s COMMITment to a diverse workforce:

The dog is the most diverse animal on the planet. We always want to learn more from them.

The most important lesson we will ever learn from our dogs is to embrace that same diversity.
Sniff and Go will always strive to have a team as wonderfully unique as the dogs in our care.

Happy San Francisco Pet Owners

“My dog can be temperamental, which makes him a less-than-ideal candidate for group walks. Solo walks are hard to come by, though, so I’m especially grateful that Sniff and Go provides them.”

Jeff W.

“Our pup is a rescue and not good with other dogs, so it’s difficult to find walkers we trust to take him out in San Francisco while we are at work. The Sniff and Go team is phenomenal with him and we never have to worry. They are also incredibly professional and reliable. We would give 6 stars if we could!”

Liberty B.

“The Sniff and Go team is incredibly thoughtful, reliable, accommodating, and most importantly genuine dog lovers. Trusting that our dog, Pixel, will be walked by someone he’s familiar with every day is priceless!”
