A happy dog = a happy dog owner.
At Blue Dog SF, our goal is simple, 100% dog and dog owner satisfaction.
I’ve been a Blue Dog client for 2 years and I’m very happy with them! They keep a profile about my dog and add every new piece of information I share with them about his likes and dislikes and habits.
Scheduling is very easy. They have an app like most companies but I also frequently email the office directly to request changes. I unfortunately request a lot of last minute schedule changes but they are always accommodating whenever possible.
I love the report cards I get and the pictures. It is so clear they know his personality and all his quirks so well.
I also like that this is a company – whenever a walker is sick, they have back-up and they handle making sure the substitute walker has the key to my apartment so I don’t have to.
A dog friend referred me to Blue Dog and I am so grateful she did! Blue Dog has been such a happy addition to our home and Finnegan is such a happy pup now. I initially met with Brian, the owner, and Megan, my walker for a meet & greet. I instantly felt really good energy from both of them and they both seemed so kind. I could tell right away they genuinely care about the well being of your dog and want to make sure they have a positive impact on them.
Additionally, Blue Dog’s service really sold me right away. They leave a QR code badge in your house and scan it every day upon arrival and again on checkout. You know exactly what time they showed up and came back. Megan leaves me a little note online each day of how Finny did on his walk. I can go on their website and see where they walked that day through their GPS. As a helicopter pup mom, this was right up my alley.
All in all, Blue Dog has been a huge blessing to our home and I am so grateful we found them. Megan is wonderful & takes great care of Finny! Brian is always responsive and great to work with.
We have been using Blue Dog for almost two years now for walks for our Bernese Mountain Dog. He loves the team – and it’s great that we have a consistent walker come every day to our apartment. The notes are descriptive and unique – a bonus! I’ve been very happy with the management team and all of the walkers that we’ve had so far. I would definitely recommend Blue Dog to any new dog owners in the Bay Area.
Long over due review… but Blue Dog is the best! There is no way that we could have raised our dog in the city without the help of Blue Dog, specifically Shannon. My girlfriend and I both were working 60+ hours a week so we needed a reliable walker and Blue Dog delivered without fail.
Blue Dog was there from day 1 when we picked up Chewy at 8 weeks old. Shannon was there to help every weekday; first, we started with the puppy package then moved onto the group walks once Chewy received all of his shots. Blue Dog helped socialize Chewy and they became an extended part of our family. We loved the daily updates and they were so good at reinforcing good habits. It’s great that they have a full time, dedicated staff for anything that comes up last minute (i.e. request to take dog out twice in one day, dog is sick so be on the look out, etc.). And I like that they kept a copy of my key but I think you have other options as well.
I know there are a lot of dog walking options out there but if Blue Dog serves your area, I highly recommend them!
We’ve used Blue Dog for ~9 months, and could not be happier or more confident recommending this service to anyone looking for a reliable, responsive, and considerate group of dog walkers. A few highlights below:
- The Blue Dog operations team is very responsive via email
- If there is a change we need made, Blue Dog has always accommodated our change requests w/ no issue
- All of the dog walkers are considerate and helpful with our young 19 month old dog. They work with us to reinforce the good behavior training we practice at home
- They are trust worthy…we can always count on them to take care of our dog
- Price – they have the best price in the area
Without hesitation, if you’re looking for a dog walker for your dog, go with Blue Dog.
Blue Dog has been great, highly responsive, communicative, and friendly to our dog, could not recommend enough.
I have LOVED being a client with Blue Dog and feel like I hit the jackpot in getting Ale as our dog walker, she has gone above and beyond in taking care of my somewhat special needs Doberman Schatzi. Ale proved to be incredibly trustworthy immediately and I NEVER stressed on the days she came to walk Schatzi. Now admittedly, I’m a bit OCD about my dog and who is caring for her, so the peace of mind Ale gave me was invaluable!
I’ve used Blue Dog since my French Bulldog, Scott, was about 16 weeks old. From the get go, Blue Dog was super helpful with potty breaks and play time while I was at work. Scott is now two years old, going on three, and continues to love Blue Dog. The walks are great for him to make friends with other dogs and get out during the day. It’s been great to get to know the walkers and they’re always professional and helpful if anything comes up. The occasional pictures and walker notes I get from them always brighten my day. I can’t recommend them enough!
I love Blue Dog! They have made me and my dog’s life better. Wilson walks five times a week with them and has an absolute blast, he knows all of the dogs and people in the neighborhood thanks to these fabulous walkers. Shout out to his regular walker Alexsandra! He looks forward to the daily walks with her. All of the other walkers have been amazing too Claudia, Jae and Leilani! Thank you all for the amazing adventures Wilson and me thank you!!
Blue Dog is amazing! They have helped me so much with caring for my fur baby Olaf while I’m at work. Their puppy package was a life-saver for his first couple months. I haven’t found another company that has a twice a day puppy package like Blue Dog. I switched him over to the 1 hour group dog walks after he finished his vaccinations, and that has worked out great as well. He loves his Blue Dog friends – sometimes we run into them in the morning or evening as well!
The petcheck system works well. And although I’ve had multiple dog walker changes, the managers have always been 110% responsive to my concerns and Olaf’s needs as a puppy. The walkers have gone above and beyond to care for Olaf, especially when he was sick, even popping in for a quick checkup after the walk. There are not many people I would trust with my puppy and in my home, but Blue Dog has been wonderful so far!
**3 months later, and I have moved to a new neighborhood with Olaf. Even though Blue Dog doesn’t have many other pups near my new place, they went out of their way to include us in the walking schedule. I think they must really love Olaf – they are the best!!
