Tobey Grey Team Leader and Trainer
With today’s busy lifestyles pet owners are often want a life for their animals they simply don’t have the time or energy to execute. Canine Comprehensive was born out of my frustration at how hard it was to give my pets the life I wanted for them, while still balancing my own life.
In my free time I volunteer with Grateful Dog Rescue fostering dogs who need additional training, and performing behavioral assessments for incoming dogs. I also work with MicroMentor helping other small business owners get started. I come from a psychology background and I apply these principles to dogs who have experienced trauma or are coping with aggression.

Joanna Karraker Assistant
“As a kid I raised and trained seeing eye guide dogs, which gave me a great background in animal care and training.”
Joanna grew up surrounded by German Shepherds, raising many successful working dogs for the blind. In college she worked at a boarding kennel and from there continued to pursue ways to get her animal fix! After moving to the Bay area from Pennsylvania she started volunteering with the Milo Foundation. Neighbors asked her to help with their dogs and she began waking and pet sitting independently and eventually linked up with Canine Comprehensive. Joanna lives on a boat in the Emeryville harbor and teaches sea kayaking lessons in her spare time.
