Get to Know Us

The Full Story

Our journey began in November 2011, right in the heart of the Dogpatch, our beloved San Francisco. We, Bryan and April, met at a well-known dog-boarding business where we were both employed. This was a great place to learn the ins and outs of working with dogs daily. It wasn't long before we started sharing our mutual interests, dating, and years after, we created a family. We have two beautiful, dog-loving children, our son Ve'a and our daughter Sylvie.  


Over the years together, we grew a passion and determination to expand our understanding of dogs. This was done through learning from experienced dog trainers, educational books, television, and video programs, volunteering at shelters, and, more importantly, hands-on training. With over 20+ years of experience, we have been through the trenches, and with every new dog we encounter, we continue to learn and grow.  


At the pandemic's start, we both lost our daily jobs, working in the gig economy. Our shared passion for helping dogs and their owners led us to take a considerable risk and open our dog training business. That was the best decision we could have made because we have been unbelievably blessed. ​


Mutt and Tumble was created with family in mind, and we express this significant value by treating each dog and owner like family. We are always a call, text, or email away from helping in any way we can. We are looking forward to helping you and your dog!


Much love, ​

Mutt & Tumble



We aim to build TRUST, RESPECT, and LOVE for every dog and dog owner. By giving owners insight and sharing the fundamentals of how dogs should be treated, we are strengthening the owner's leadership and obtaining a well-balanced life for their dog.
