Maya T. Ramirez, CDW

Aok9s founder, dog guardian, artist, caregiver, and Certified Dog Walker, Maya happily provides valuable, reliable, professional services for all her Aok9s pack members, and has been active in San Francisco with consistent work in the dog care industry since 2009. She earned her certifications from Dog*tec Academy while gaining various K9 experiences and activities in the community during her four years employed by The Dog Wranglers (thedogwranglers.com) and launched her first K9 company in 2013. Her life-long love and care of K9s, her use of positive techniques, reward-based conditioning, and leadership skills all contribute to benefit her dog packs. Their excellent cohesiveness, loyalty, and health are easy for everyone to see, and that she upholds constant safety standards and "dognity" for all.  Maya currently lives near Twin Peaks with her long-time partner, Mimi, teen daughter, Lily, and spunky shih-poo, Buddha in a dog-friendly home, aka "The Aok9s Korral". All four are Bay Area natives. Their family shares a unique talent and loving understanding of all dog breeds.  Some days Mimi volunteers her fun sportiness and drive for their pack adventures, and Lily often joins during her school breaks.  All three Homo sapiens are fluent in the spoken, telepathic, and body languages of Canis familiaris​.  They agree it's a pleasure to love and have adorable Aok9s to snuggle up with making it comfortably family-style.  K9s are dogsends!
