Blue Dog started over 5 years ago with the goal of creating a professional and accountable dog walking company. We provide your dog with daily exercise in a safe and healthy environment.  All of our walks are on-leash and in small packs of three or fewer dogs. We believe that you should be given peace of mind when your pup leaves the house each day; that is why we use PetCheck, an all-in-one tool to schedule and track your dog's walks. Real time email notifications are sent every time your dog is picked up and dropped off and you can peruse the GPS-tracked map to determine where your dog went on his or her daily outings.

All of our dog walkers are bonded and insured, trained and managed by our management team and are offered all of the benefits of being an employee in San Francisco.  This all ensures that you can have the peace of mind that your dog is in professional and caring hands.

Brian, Owner I decided to start Blue Dog over 5 years ago after searching high and low for a walker for my pup, Blue. When I couldn't find what I was looking for, I decided to start my own company! Outside of work, you can find me skiing or just adventuring with Blue!

Denise, Assistant Manager My love for animals started at a very early age. I always felt sympathetic to their needs because we are their voice, and I have always felt a special connection to dogs. Growing up, one could find me reading the encyclopedia and books on dogs until my parents finally got me one (my beloved dachshund Stimpy). After always longing to work with animals, I have finally made the switch and bring over 12 years of customer service. As a self proclaimed dog lady, I'm thrilled to be connected to such a caring and awesome team at Blue Dog!

MC S., Territory Manager From a very early age I had a strong love for animals. I grew up with dogs and every other pet you could imagine. Following my passion for animals, I graduated with a degree in animal management and have been working with a wide verity of animals for the last 8 years. I have a very strong animal management and training background, which allows me to pick up on an animal’s behavior very quickly. I just recently moved to the Bay Area from Buffalo, New York and knew I wanted to continue my career with animals. When I found out dog walking was a career choice on the west coast, I knew it would be the perfect fit for me! Not only do I get to continue working around animals, but I get the chance to explore this beautiful new city I live in! I have had two dogs of my own and they are like my children. My one dog was there for me when I went to college, he helped my husband propose, and he was in our wedding. We rescued our second dog last year and he brings me so much joy and laughter every day. I love my dogs like children and each dog I walk will be treated the exact same way!

Claudia, Territory Manager I've always had an unconditional love for all animals and especially dogs. I grew up in a household of two to three dogs at a time and since moving to San Francisco for school I haven't been able to get a dog of my own since I'm always on the go. Being able to combine work, my passion for dogs and love for the outdoors there was no way I could say no. Working with Blue Dog I not only find I have something to give to each dog but I also get something as well- pure happiness. I have a happy heart and a happy soul when I'm around my pups!

Leilani R., Assistant Manager I moved out to San Francisco from Denver, Colorado in 2013. I am a performer, dancer, and musician. From having a few dogs growing up, to working in the dog industry, my love for the fur babies is ever growing. I am truly passionate for all creatures, especially canine companions, and getting a chance to enjoy the outdoors with the pups is a simple pleasure that I am beyond grateful for. Being a dog walker fits my whole lifestyle, and it doesn't hurt that I make new furry friends along the way.

Jae, Assistant Manager I grew up surrounded by dogs, my mom had a soft spot for them. From the time I was born till I left home, we cared for over 25, from 7lbs to 160lbs. Many rescues, some fosters that that dug their way into our hearts and stayed, and others that just came into our lives in one way or another. Being raised in a household of pups has made me very in tune to their behaviors and emotions, which comes in handy for this profession! Sadly my apartment doesn't allow dogs, so I turned to dog walking to fill the furry place in my heart.

Stevie A., Assistant Manager I've been an animal lover for as long as I can remember, but dogs hold a very special place in my heart. They're so unique and loving, and with some effort you can truly learn the ins and outs of their personality! Stubborn dogs are some of my favorites because it's a true challenge to figure them out and earn their respect.. All the while laughing at them for doing silly things! I've always dreamed of working with dogs but didn't quite know how to approach the opportunity. But with Blue Dog they made it super easy and made me feel really comfortable right away! They believed in my ability to love and look after your precious pals and now I wake up and actually look forward to coming to work! I'm doing what I love while still having so much fun!

Alexandra B. I'm passionate about all animals, whether they are furry, feathery, or scaly, but dogs have always held a special place in my heart. Much to my mom's chagrin, my first word as a baby wasn't "mama", but instead "bow wow". Over the course of my life, I've had the honor of being a playmate to some mutts, generations of golden retrievers, and a wolfdog-German shepherd mix named Lobo. After living in SF for two years, my family dog made the trek from my native Tennessee to come live with me during the summer of 2016. While my thirteen year old Yorkie is the only pup that lives with me, I treat every dog I meet like they are my own: giving them as much love and care as they need. It’s truly my pleasure to care for your pups while we’re out exploring the city. I’m as happy to see them as they are to see me!

Kristina C. My love for my nonhuman companions is unconditional, as their love for me is too.  I knew at a young age I wanted to dedicate my life to helping animals and working to ensure every animal has a safe, happy life. As a child, I would always bring home stray cats and dogs to take them off the street and personally find them a loving home. As an adult working at different customer service jobs, my coworkers could always find me outside petting or saying hello to the dogs that were passing by. That was the highlight of my work day. Now walking for Blue Dog, my whole entire day is spent with such loving, funny creatures. I am thankful for the opportunity to learn and create relationships with multiple pups every single day. They all have such distinct personalities and make me laugh constantly. I love sharing adventures with them day after day and can’t think of a better way to spend my time.

Peter D. I'm a native Bay Area animal lover, thrilled to be spending time with so many great San Francisco pups!   I've loved walking dogs since I was six, when my new neighbors moved in next door with their big husky Brewski and we became close friends.  Since then I've cultivated a deep affection for dogs, cats, and animals of all kinds (but especially the furry ones!)  and couldn't be happier to be sharing the outdoors with them every day. When I'm not walking, I perform and teach music, my other lifelong passion.  My wife and I live in the Mission district with two well loved cats (who luckily don't mind sharing me with Blue Dog!)

Karolina S. A long time ago, a man said, "if you want to have your best friend, find a dog." Dogs are the best humans' friends – they can feel your mood and understand your words; they miss you when you are at work and are so happy when you come back home. I know it because I have been surrounded with dogs since I was a toddler. When I moved to San Francisco, my dog, Rico, had to stay with my parents. I missed him and walking with him so I decided to become a dog walker at Blue Dog. Rico has recently joined me so I can say I am full-time dog walker now. :)

Emily M. You could say my entire life has been characterized by the need to be with animals (dogs in particular).  I wanted a dog of my own so badly I drove my parents crazy by asking for one everyday for nearly 8 years until they finally gave in and brought home Molly, my first ever pup.  Before that I remember going up to neighbors offering (ahem, “begging") to walk their dogs for free just so I could be with them. Years later and states away from my childhood home and beloved pets, I feel a void in my life and a gaping hole in my heart that only a furry companion can fill.  Since I haven’t been able to have my own dog where I have lived since moving to the Bay Area, I have been pet sitting and walking to compensate.  I couldn’t be happier to be with Blue Dog SF, doing just what I love and spending my days with the best four-legged, furry people on the planet!

Jen I moved to SF from LA a year ago, along with my mini-toy poodles, Boba and BamBam. My dogs mean everything to me, so being able to meet and care for other people's dogs is such a privilege. So many different animals have come and gone in my life, and I cherish every moment we've shared together. I look forward to creating more amazing memories with new fur-friends!

Gustavo I am filling a passion I have while working with blue dog. That passion being involved with dog or any type of pet! All my life there has not been a time a pet wasn't apart of our family. I have a pit bull mix that I rescued from the pet store I worked at. We both had a need for one another's companionship. This is what I look for while working for blue dog. The joy a pet brings to someone's life is unmatched and the fact that I get to look after someone else's joy is a great feeling.

Emma Growing up on a farm in rural Ohio, I've been surrounded by animals of all types my entire life. But my dogs (and cat Purple) were my everything. I frequently snuck them to my bedroom from outside and dreamt of leashing them up and taking them for a walk in a city as I so often saw on TV. And now with Blue Dog, I get to live that childhood dream everyday and I am so grateful for it. When I'm not walking doggies you can find me surfing, boxing and petting any dog that passes my line of vision. I look forward to creating bonds and lasting relationships with the pups I care for each day and I hope to continue to live out my childhood dream for many more years to come.

Milda M. I've loved animals since I was a baby. At the age of 2, and being very jealous that my baby brother was born, I ran away and was found down the road hanging out with a group of stray dogs. I have a strong connection with cats and dogs. I absolutely love them and care so much about the dogs I walk for Blue Dog. I'm like their Aunty Milda and they love me too. Walking dogs is the perfect balance to my other life. When not with the pups, I'm either teaching violin/viola lessons or practicing my viola. I have two degrees in music from Biola University and Pennsylvania State University. I am a freelance violist and private violin/viola teacher performing and teaching here in the Bay Area. Walking dogs provides a nice contrast to my musical life.

Megan H. It goes without saying that I love dogs. I have a 4-year-old Dalmatian myself, and I love spending time with her when I'm not studying or working. I care for her like my own child - in fact, she is practically my child. I believe that dogs are the smartest, most loyal and caring companions. That's why I love them so much and wish I had more of my own, but I'm unable to because of space. I got into dog walking because I actually wish I had more dogs of my own. Dog walking allows me to be around many dogs that I can share love with and care for.

Aracely R. My name is Aracely. I was born and raised in the Bay Area so I am very familiar with the city. I am patient, caring and an animal lover. I became a dog walker because I grew up having dogs around. Dogs to me are friends, companions and playmates. They’re always there to cheer you up and offer a different perspective on life. I believe it is important to dedicate as much time to them. It is fulfilling to serve them and give some of my time to them, when they devote their whole lives to being our friends.

Katie I have had an absolute love for dogs since a very young age when my family and I adopted our beloved black Labrador, Abby, when I was four years old. She lived 16 long, amazing years with us and my family and I currently have our beautiful yellow Labrador, Bailey, whom we adopted at eight weeks old. Whether it be my own dogs, my neighbors’, friends’, or random dogs on the street, I love them all! Blue Dog enables me to make the customers and dogs happy by walking their dogs around a beautiful city. Additionally, this job puts a huge smile on my face because I am able to be around all of these amazing dogs each day! :)

Ester

I am a musician, a maker, indoor gardener, outdoor enthusiast, and expert library fine accruer, born and raised in the Bay. On weekends, you can find me in a big floppy hat, poring over plants and rocks in the Sierras. My love for dogs started at home, growing up with Cubby, Boomer, Üter (who was, indeed, towheaded & plump), and then Stinky - I miss each of them dearly. But my journey with walking really began a couple years ago with Chowder, my nephew dog, whom I still walk after work. He taught me patience and helped me realize how fulfilling a simple stroll can be for the both of us. Hanging with dogs just doesn't get old. It's a pleasure to walk your pups!

Siddhi I joined six months ago, so I'm sort of a newbie to the Blue Dog crew. Having recently moved to the States from India, I was beyond happy when I chanced upon this opportunity. Back in Mumbai, I used to work with an animal shelter and the experience was immensely rewarding. Hanging out with animals and taking care of them is so satisfying. Nothing can beat the awesomeness of exploring the city every day with pups!

Ian G. I have been an animal lover my entire life, and have had the privilege of working professionally with them for almost a decade. I began my animal welfare and behavior career at the Maryland SPCA in Baltimore, Maryland in 2007. I moved to San Francisco in 2010 to work at the San Francisco SPCA, where I was Feline Care Coordinator, Adoption Intake Supervisor, and Veterinary Behavior Doctor Assistant. My experience working in shelter and clinical animal behavior has given me the ability to read and appropriately respond to dogs’ emotional states through their body language and behaviors. When I’m not having a blast with your pups around San Francisco, I am the humble servant of 5 cats and a Napoleonic dog named Star Fox, who graciously allow me to share their home and a small section of the bed.

Shannon B. I’ve always loved animals and was lucky to grow up with a wide variety of pets, including dogs, cats, mice, rabbits, hamsters and fish! After moving from the suburbs outside of Chicago to San Francisco to start my Master’s degree three years ago, I’ve gone through serious dog withdrawals, never being able to adopt a dog myself (though in 2014 I adopted a chinchilla, who is the cutest fluff ball out there!). I can’t wait to go to work and be greeted by wagging tails and puppy smiles. I’m so excited to explore the city with the cutest walking buddies I’ll ever have!

Karina A passion for animals and dogs in particular was instilled in me through my parents who picked-up and cared for stray dogs when I was growing up. We always had at least four dogs at the house and these were treated pretty much as family. I want to have a dog of my own someday but right now can't because of where I live so I love that I am able to get dog time through my work.

Bead I grew up in Minnesota with a little black schnoodle, Phoebe. She was always my favorite member of the family, and I was heartbroken when I had to move away from her for college. When I came to San Francisco for grad school, I was lucky enough to find a house in which I could coexist with two cats and a husky. I'm excited to be working for Blue Dog because it means I get to spend my days outdoors and with animals, two of my favorite things, and make many more furry friends.

Anne I love dogs of all breeds and sizes, and I’ve studied some training techniques which have come in handy volunteering at a local shelter and pet sitting for others. Most importantly, as an experienced dog walker and sitter I understand the importance of trusting someone to care for you”kids!” I come from a corporate background in Human Resource Management but it is working with animals and having the opportunity to see their faces everyday that puts a smile on my face!

Tawni For as long as I can remember I have had love for all animals, especially dogs. Growing up, I spent much of my time creating photo shoots with my dogs and dreaming of having a job where one day I work with animals. During my time working for Blue Dog, I have learned a remarkable amount not only from the staff, but from the dogs I walk daily. My favorite part about walking these adorable pups is that every day is a new adventure, and they never cease to put a smile on my face. I am so grateful to be a part of the Blue Dog pack.
