The Management Team
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!
Brian LongFounder & Owner
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!
Claudia MendozaGeneral Manager
My family had dogs while I was growing up, and I've always loved animals of all kinds. But sadly, I've been unable to get my own pet since I've been in San Francisco. I love the city, love animals, and love being outside, so I'm really excited to get to work with all the pups at Blue Dog!

Hello, I’m Isabelle, and I’ve loved animals ever since I was a little girl. I’ve grown up with many different kinds of dogs, big and small, with many different personality types. To this day, dogs are some of my favorite company to keep! Every dog is different and I’m more than happy to do whatever possible in order for them to feel comfortable.
Having grown up around a bunch of friends' dogs but not having my own, my love for them grew with each visit. I adore the different personalities every dog has, and love spending time with them whether it be through playing, walking, or just hanging out! Dogs have been a huge part of my life thus far and I'd like to keep it that way!
Hi! I’m Natalie, a local artist and a huge fan of dogs! I’ve been walking my friend’s furry friends, as well as my sweet dog, Rowan, for over 15 years now. I love each dog’s unique personality and quirks and I always strive to ensure they are happy and comfortable. Walking and getting to spend time with dogs brings me so much joy and fulfillment, and I am so grateful to have this as part of my life.
