Charitable Giving
The Panting Pooch is proud to announce its newest partnership with Family Dog Rescue.

The Panting Pooch will also donate the new customer enrollment fees collected throughout 2017 to Family Dog Rescue.

When an earthquake devastated Nepal in April of 2015, The Panting Pooch created
the fundraising event "
Hiking 4 Himalayas". Hiking 4 Himalayas raised funds for the Habitat for Humanity, Red Cross and ActionAid Nepal earthquake relief funds. The pooches begged their friends and family to sponsor them on their all day hiking adventure. The pooches spent a fun filled day hiking in the beautiful Baltimore Canyon and up to Blithedale Ridge in Marin County. Thanks to the pooches and the generosity of The Panting Pooch's clients Hiking 4 Himalayas was a huge success and raised $1,640.00 for Nepal earthquake relief.

Through special promotions and new customer enrollments The Panting Pooch raises funds for a local shelter. The Panting Pooch has raised $1,415.00 to date for The San Francisco SPCA by donating its tips, holiday gifts and new customer enrollment fees.
About The Founder
In 2011 Lane Gunsolley, the founder of The Panting Pooch, left his successful nearly ten year career in the banking industry to pursue what made him happiest: being surrounded by the joy of dogs. In 2012 Lane graduated from The dog*tec Dog Walking Academy. Lane has furthered his education in canine behavior and training by completing Pet Addict's Dog Behavior & Psychology Course in 2015 and Karen Pryor's Dog Trainer Foundations course in 2016.

While growing up in a small rural town in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, Lane formed a strong love of nature and the outdoors. After completing courses at The Art Institute of Seattle, he began a career in banking, which eventually brought him to San Francisco in 2005. No matter where on the globe Lane may be, he will always consider the great City of San Francisco his home.
 
Lane is the proud guardian of Harlow, a six-year-old "Teacup" Chihuahua and the late Crow, a Golden Retriever and Chow Chow mix. He and Crow shared 15 years of great joy and adventure together. Lane hopes to assist you in providing your pooch with the long, healthy, happy life that Crow enjoyed.

Lane would like to thank his clients for sharing their best friends and allowing him to be a part of some of the happiest times of their pooch's lives.
