Torie Silletto, CTC, PCBC-A, CPDT-KA


With a profound dedication to animal welfare, Diamond Dogs steadfastly rejects the use of pain, fear and force as tools for canine behavior modification. Decades of empirical research has unequivocally proven that dogs respond more favorably to training rooted in positive reinforcement and trust-building interactions.

Torie's professional journey commenced within the esteemed San Francisco SPCA, where she trained and rehabilitated the most intricate and challenging shelter dog cases. Her expertise also extends to enrichment and welfare, puppy socialization, and the mentorship of personnel and volunteers. She further honed her skills at the East Bay SPCA where she orchestrated public dog training classes.

As cherished family members, dogs today merit the utmost care. In addition to over a decade of hands-on experience, Torie has earned an array of well respected certifications, attesting to her proficiency in her craft:

Dog training is unregulated in the United States. This means absolutely anyone can hang up a shingle and charge for their services. 

Diamond Dogs was born out of principled opposition to the barbaric, inhumane practices perpetuated as training.

Our client relationships are rooted in transparency and trust, and unwavering commitment to your canine companion's well-being. To illustrate why it is so important to thoroughly vet any trainer you choose to work with, please take a moment to watch this short video:

My biggest concern when searching for pet care is whether or not I can trust them to care for my furry family member. Rarely do I feel they will care as much as I do. Most often I rely on reviews to make sure a pet has not been mistreated. That is not the case with Diamond Dogs! This business cares about your pet. The owner puts her heart into this business because she loves pets as much as you do. You can trust that when your pup is with Diamond Dogs, they are in the best hands possible!
