A happy dog = a happy dog owner.
At Blue Dog SF, our goal is simple, 100% dog and dog owner satisfaction.
Blue Dog has been great, highly responsive, communicative, and friendly to our dog, could not recommend enough.
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 since we moved to SF in April of 2018 and they have been incredible. Also responsive to requests and schedule changes and the daily reviews are always extremely detailed. I also like that you get a map of where Kaelani (our mini-long haired dachshund) goes on her daily walks along with a few pictures a week with her besty, Dizzy, the Great Dane. Highly recommend them!
The most AMAZING dog walking service ever.
My baby Milo has severe anxiety issues but Blue Dog has accommodated his differences and made his life so much better every day for the past two years. The group size is small, the price is unbeatable, and the walkers are incredible.
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.
We’ve been using Blue Dog for our two dogs’ weekday walks for the past two years. We are extremely happy with their services and their professionalism. Our dogs are walked by the same walker each day, which has helped to build trust and ensure consistency. If the regular walker is unavailable for some reason, Blue Dog notifies us in advance and they send another walker with whom our dogs are familiar. This is a huge plus for us because are dogs will not leave with a stranger. The walker sends us an email with pictures of our pups after each walk, which really helps to put me at ease when I’m at work. I can’t speak highly enough of the Blue Dog folks.
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!!
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!
Blue Dog has made a huge difference for our little family. We recommend their services for those who are needing a reliable and quality dog walker. My husband and I moved to the city, which was not easy for our fur baby. He was used to my husband working from home and spending more time outside with other dogs that he knew well. Needless to say, the transition was not easy because he was left alone and was not getting as much activity. After frustrating trials with dog daycares, and not having great experiences with other dog walkers, our apartment complex recommended Blue Dog. Our neighbors provided references for Blue Dog as well. We only use Blue Dog a few times a week, but his demeanor is more upbeat and we know that he is taken care of.
A few notes about our dog walker- we LOVE her! She has gone out of her way to give love to our four legged child. She makes sure that he is happy by giving plenty of belly rubs and gives extra care to his needs (especially when he has been sick). She provides detailed information, that includes cute pictures and what he did on their walk (so not just the GPS route). Our dog gets very excited when she comes to walk him, even when she wakes him up from a nap (we have a dog camera). Our dog truly likes her, and it comforts us to know he is happy and well taken care of.
The operations/customer service is just as awesome. They are responsive whenever we have questions. We have had to make impromptu schedule changes and they are quick to confirm with us. Their platform is basic and easy to use, but I typically just email them when we need to adjust our schedules. We appreciate it when they reach out to us to provide any changes on their end- if a new dog walker will be joining, etc.
My only wish is that they would include services on the weekends- because we love them so much! Other then that, Blue Dog is worth every penny.
Blue Dog has been walking our Italian Greyhound for the past year, and she could not be happier! We love the daily email scan once she is picked up and walk report with pictures – helps with the guilt of leaving our precious pup home while working. We could not be happier with the entire team at Blue Dog, they have reliable, consistent, friendly walkers, and very professional to deal with….best part is very responsive to emails or any changes in walk schedule.
You and your pup will be very happy with Blue Dog, highly recommend!
