Our Team

Meet The Top Dog SF Team!

Natalie Tondelli Walsh

Owner of Top Dog SF,  Certified Trainer and Consultant

Natalie started Top Dog SF while in college, walking dogs part-time while attending SFSU. She walked family and friend’s dogs after graduation, and she quickly learned this was her passion. Natalie became a certified trainer in 2009 when she attended the SPCA’s Dog Training Academy.
Natalie and her husband Tim have had two Labradors since living in San Francisco named Mojo and Luisa, which were the motivation to grow Top Dog SF.

Natalie and Tim now have two children and a border collie mix named Butters. After having her first child, Natalie pursued her lifelong dream of becoming a police officer. For a little over five years, Natalie worked in the County of San Mateo as a police officer, although officially retiring in 2024 to return to the top dogs!
