A happy dog = a happy dog owner.
At Blue Dog SF, our goal is simple, 100% dog and dog owner satisfaction.
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 are lucky to have Sonja and Leilani walk our dog. They take extra special care of our pup and work to help her improve her walking skills. They send a email notification when they arrive and when the walk is complete. I enjoy reading the daily updates and seeing the pictures. Thanks Leilani and Sonja!
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 really can’t speak highly enough of Blue Dog. I was hesitant to try and find a new dog walker because our beloved sassy dog Charlie is very anti-dog walker and every single dog walk in the past has not been able to get him out of the house.
Before he even had a walk his new walker Justine and Leilani came over to meet him. I explained ALL his quirks and they weren’t hesitant at all to take him on. Charlie is little but tends to be growly and just grumpy sometimes when someone enters his territory. He has scared dog walkers before.
Here are some things i LOVE:
- Pet check tech so you can see when they come
- I always get the best messages and pictures from Justine
- I have NEVER had an instance where Justine or any of the sub- walkers have not been able to get out. That alone is worth all the money in the world in my opinion.
- They are always responsive over email and let me know when they run late.
- Charlie i think really loves Justine and even though he makes a fuss sometimes (all the time) i know he is living his best life 🙂
I never have to rush home worried. I just heart them all!
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.
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 is wonderful! We’ve been so impressed with Blue Dog’s service and operation. Our dog gets so excited to see her walker everyday and we trust this business completely. They are always responsive, timely and accurate with their reporting on each day’s activities. The dogwalking market in SF is very competitive, but this is a trustworthy group and a very fair rate which helps gives us relief knowing our dog is taken care of during the day. Highly recommend this group!
I have been using Blue Dog’s group walk service for almost a year. It’s great! I get daily updates (sometimes with pictures!) and my dog both gets exercise and socialization which puts my mind at ease during my work day. Definitely recommend!
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!!
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.
