She is a graduate of the renowned SF/SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers, taught by Jean Donaldson. Pamela also holds a Certificate in Separation Anxiety Treatment, having studied under Separation Anxiety expert, Malena DeMartini.

Pamela brings an enthusiastic and creative teaching style to her work which makes training fun, intelligent and successful for dogs and people. Clients find Pamela able to treat seemingly unsolvable behavior issues with innovative techniques. Her areas of interest and expertise are enriching relationships between owners and dogs, and setting up puppies, adolescents and new rescue companions to succeed in the urban environment.

Forever evolving, Pamela enjoys keeping a fresh perspective on learning and dog training. She regularly attends conferences, seminars, workshops and, perhaps most importantly continues to learn from each and every client and dog she works with. Pamela and her husband Jordaan currently live in Oakland with a fluffy mutt Stuey Little, a semi-feral cat Harold, four chickens named Amelia Eggheart, Frittata, Yolko Ono, Princess Laya, one fish named Joey, and her daughter Gemma, the Junior Trainer! 

Jordaan Van Romburgh
Dogwalking Manager

Jordaan grew up on a small farm in South Africa with a wide variety of animals. His down to earth, big-hearted approach to humans and animals give him a special way with clients and dogs. After spending 11 years working with shelter animals at SF/SPCA and SF Animal Care and Control, Jordaan joined dogEvolve to manage our Dogwalking services.

Jordaan runs our off-leash playgroups and private walks and ensures every dog has a blast on their outing! He also keeps up on obedience skills by introducing tricks and reinforcing good manners. Shy dogs, quirky dogs, “misunderstood” types and other rascals capture Jordaan’s interest.

Clients adore Jordaan and look forward to his regular pictures and anecdotes on adventures with pups!

Jordaan is a Certified Dog Walker (via TopDogSF) and shares a home and family with his wife Pamela, Stuey Little, Harold the cat and his daughter Gemma!

Kristine Adams
Assistant Trainer

Kristine Adams is a Certified Trainer and Counselor and a graduate of the acclaimed Academy for Dog Trainers, taught by Jean Donaldson.

Kristine started her career with dogs working for Pamela as a walker in San Francisco from 2006 to 2012, and quickly became hooked on Pamela’s teaching and her dedication to positive approach, force-free training. In 2017 Kristine began to study dogs full time via The Academy for Dog Trainers, conferences, and seminars from trainers and scientists such as Bob Bailey and Daniel Mills.

Force-free and science based, positive reinforcement training has become a passion as well as a mission for Kristine, and she looks forward to helping dogs and owners have a happier, more fulfilling life.
