Jennifer Bazan

DOGZ101 Owner
Lead Dog Trainer, Certified Dog Groomer
President of Bay Area Ring Club
President and Training Director of Bay Area PSA Club
Jennifer has never been a stranger to dogs, Born into the world of dog shows, her grandparents have been breeding AKC Champion sporting dogs for 50+ years in Redwood City. She has been attending dog shows since she was born. Jennifer showed her first dog when she was 10 years old and ever since then, it has stuck. She competed in Junior Showmanship, and received thousands of dollars in scholarships, and has been featured in newspapers such as the Fresno Bee and San Mateo Daily Journal.

Jennifer has qualified for one of the world's most prestigious dog shows, the Westminster Kennel Club, 5 years in a row for junior showmanship. Jennifer took to the dog shows and got serious when she started working for professional dog handlers such as Carlos Carrizzo, Laurie and Larry Fenner, and Wendy Bettis. There she learned many “tricks of the trade” handling many different breeds ranging from Dachshunds to Black Russian Terriers, but the one that made the biggest imprint on her was grooming. Jennifer learned grooming styles such as hand scissoring, hand stripping, and mastering AKC breed cuts. She is passionate about transforming her guests into well-groomed, clean, and happy dogs.

Tony Pinto

Head Dog Trainer/Manager

He currently has two Pitbulls named Sky (demo dog) and Mamba. Mamba was from a San Francisco rescue—Tony hopes to continue to grow as a trainer so he can put his talents to pulling dogs from death row and rehabilitating them. At a previous dog training facility, Tony trained over 50 dogs dealing with behavior modification and basic obedience. In his spare time, Tony loves to play basketball (GO LAKERS!), enjoys anything Marvel related, and is learning how to garden.
