On May 22, 2012, Smilin Dogs in San Carlos lost my dog for most of the afternoon on their 750 acre private property in rural Pescadero. At 3:30 pm, I got a phone call from the owner, Konrad, that my dog was "missing" & that he had been looking for her, both on foot and by car. My dog is a 4-year-old, 50-pound lab. This was her second off-leash hike with Smilin Dogs.
Konrad, the owner, searched the property himself. At no time, were there other searchers besides myself. I asked him several times if we could increase the size of the search party, because it would be getting dark soon. He said his wife was on the way from Belmont, as well as a staff member. They did not show up. We found my dog at 6:30 pm by a creek (where she was last seen).
The property is not enclosed. Konrad said it was possible for my dog to cross HIghway 1, while most of the other streets were rural, so not too may cars. 2-3 years ago, Konrad said another dog had gone "missing" under his care on the same property, and was not found for 2 days.
I explained to Konrad that there is inadequate training of his dog-walkers. He said he would talk to the dog-walker who had lost my dog. He said, I could still use their doggy day care facility in San Carlos. And I just received an invoice today, billing me for her 2 hikes! Unbelievable.

Smilin Dogs is the Best! Our Golden Retriever QQ is happiest when she knows she is being picked up for a hike. The day before, she lays by the front door waiting. Nicole and the staff at Smilin Dogs treat her with care when she is hiking, boarding or grooming. We have left QQ for up to 3 weeks at Smilin Dogs and she always comes home happy, content, super tired and clean.

Smiling dogs is a trusted and valued service for our family. We couldn't live without their reliability and ease. They are a big part of our lives and QQ is the luckiest dog alive!

Big Shout out to Smilin' Dog's pet care. Our giant dog LOVES his day trips to Pescadero! The staff members are timely, kind, caring and respectful. We have no worries about our furry friend while he is in their care. They pick him up weekly from our house per our instructions and return him tired and hosed off! He is smiling for days, and tired too! Well worth the money for a tired and happy dog!

An absolutely awesome day vacation. It's relatively inexpensive. The service is impeccable. They're on time and courteous. They pick-up at your house, do a 3 hour hike near Pescadero, and drop-off right back at your house. The best part is that my 80lb. Ridgeback is tired for the rest of the day.

Pros: My dog cames back tired!!!

Smilin Dogs is an amazing service. My golden retriever absolutely LOVED running through the fields. Unlike regular dog walkers, you know your dog is getting a ton of exercise and is being treated by the kindest professionals.

I have a 75 pound energetic lab mix. As a young dog I had no idea what to do with his excess energy. No amount of walks or fetch would calm him. Then I found SmilinDogs. What a great service. Now, my dog has a wonderful outlet for all his energy and everyone is happy. He waits by the door impatiently on walk days. He races to the van each and every time. He has now been going to SmilinDogs for about 4 years. He never tires of it. Everyone I've met in connection with the company loves dogs and are amazing. They all appear to be animal lovers and enjoy their job. I highly recommend this service.

Our Australian Shepard Skye LOVES Smilin Dogs.

He's only 7 months old and has been enjoying Smilin Dogs as soon as he was old enough to go play with the big dogs. He needs a lot exercise and he goes into a fit of hysterical glee whenever he sees Dean or Julissa or any of the other wonderful, down to earth, kind walkers.

We have had a few different services, but Smilin Dogs is Skye's favorite. One of the best things about it is the pick up and drop off service that is part of the day.

We had an extensive interview with Konrad Thaler, the owner, and a trial day to see how Skye did and we appreciated the time he took to see if the service was a good match for our dog.

We love Smilin Dogs so much that we went from 2 days a week to 3 days a week because though he is a bit wet an does get ticks who cares, he's a dog having fun and nature happens. We just do a tick check each time he goes and that's about it.

Skye almost always passes out once he gets home happy as clam.

My Partner Joey and I definetly feel that the walkers keep us up do date on his behaivior and are very respectful when they come and go from our home.

Thanks so much Konrad and to your team at Smilin!

I live in Los Altos and have an Australian Cattle Dog named Lucy, and my efforts to "run" with her left me panting and sore and her under exercised. I knew I needed a creative solution to keep her healthy, fit and mellowed out and me running with my feet underneath me. I had tried several "off-leash" areas but ran into poisonoak or enclosures too small for her needs or "over dogged" areas.

While running errands around town I noticed a white van with a yellow sign advertising the perfect solution! "Smilin' Dogs All-day Off-leash hiking with pick-up and drop-off". Wow! Perfect! I called and the next day Lucy and I were "interviewed". Her shots were up to date and the following Thursday the van drove up to my house. And it has driven up every week for 2 and a half years, rain or shine.

After a few weeks Lucy had tuned in to the particular sounds of the van and can hear it blocks away. She's at the gate by the time her walker has appeared to load her up. The walkers are all real sweet and I completely trust them to pay attention to Lucy's needs and keep her safe and happy. And that ease of mind is priceless.

The bunch of dogs Lucy walks with every week is basically always the same group so they have a pack relationship. Lucy was a rescued dog and her social skills and confidence have improved greatly since learning to be a good member of her Thursday pack.She is all tuckered out on Thursday nights. And the exercise has kept her fit and trim even during bikini season.

I have recommended them to everyone I know with medium to large dogs who are looking for a good exercise regimen. Konrad, the owner is an extremely sound dog professional and I believe in him and his staff totally.

I love the Smilin' Dogs folks who love my dog (and appreciate her uniqueness) as much as I do. I can't imagine having a dog without Smilin' Dogs being a part of our life.

I recently went back to work and was a little stressed out about what to do with my spoiled dog who was used to spending the entire day with me. Smilin' Dogs is basically a hiking/day care service for dogs. Konrad, owner of Smilin' Dogs, will interview you and your dog to make sure their service is right for you and you are right for them. He will show you a video of dogs enjoying the leased space. Konrad is very thorough with his questions and forms and also very honest about any concerns you may have. He owns a very organized company.

Our dog was a little hesitant the first day and I had to come home from work to coerce him to come outside. Thus far, that was the only problem we have experienced. I think now he looks forward to his 'walks'. The scoop I had heard on Smilin' Dogs was that the dog comes back dirty and with ticks. So far, I have NOT HAD THAT EXPERIENCE. My dog comes home a little damp from the quick wash down they receive and VERY tired but so far, no ticks, although I do check him when he comes home (hence the 4/5 stars).

Our dog has since recruited one of his very good friend to join him on his Smilin' Dogs 'walks'. Now you should see how tired he is at the end of the day!! For the price, convenience, peace of mind and fun (for your dog), I highly recommend Smilin' Dogs.

My husband and I adopted a very energetic German Shorthair Pointer 6 years ago and Smilin Dogs has been a godsend for our family. I swear she knows what day of the week it is because Friday morning she'll sit on the deck and watch the gate until a member of the Smilin Dogs staff enters and takes her for the day. She typically comes home exhausted from non-stop running. She's even worn out to the point of letting us sleep in on the following morning!

Konrad Thaler and all the Smilin Dogs staff have been warm and professional and seem genuinely happy to greet our dog in the morning. They are prompt in responding to emails and we have never had any problems/issues. They even send pre-stamped envelopes with their invoices! I would highly recommend using Smilin Dogs to anyone who has an active dog who needs LOTS of walking. We have used less expensive dog walking services in the past but they do not come close to Smilin Dogs with regards to professionalism and allowing our pointer to get the exercise she deserves.

A tired dog is a good dog.

Smilin Dogs offers an incredible dog walking service that my beagle, Rudy, truly looks forward to. He has been with this awesome service for over a year and we were truly happy when they added another day for pick-up in our neighborhood.

Smilin Dogs will pick up/drop off your dog for an off-leash 5 mile hike. The dogs travel in a maximum pack of 12 through hills, valleys, creeks, and ponds.

The staff is wonderful, caring and attentive. They will do their best to bring your pup back as clean and tick free as possible. But the due diligence is still the owner's responsibility.

Be sure to read the back of your monthly invoice, as they put some really helpful info on the back, such as dog friendly cabins in Bolinas, tick removal meds and other good information.

Overall, we could not be happier!

I have been sending my American Eskimo Toby to Smilin Dogs once a week since I came to the Bay Area three years ago. He comes home happily exhausted - and it is really hard to tire him out, so this is a great tribute. When he hears the sound of the Smilin Dogs van coming up the road, he gets really excited. The dog-handlers are great people, responsible and well-trained. Amber is Toby's favourite. For off-leash doggie outings (a ranch near the ocean) you cannot do better.

Smilin Dogs is a working pet lovers' dream come true. My large breed dog Simon has been going for over 2 years, 2 times per week. It keeps him in great shape! And the owners and walkers are wonderful - very professional and great with the dogs.

As for the comment below regarding ticks - tick season is only a few months a year and it's not that bad, you just need to get a tick spoon from the vet and check them when they get home.

Thank you Smilin Dogs for giving me the peace of mind that Simon is getting great care, attention and exercise. He loves it and can't wait to get into the Smilin Dogs van!

Does NOT get better than this. They pick up, drop off, and take the dogs out to a ranch on the coast to run all day OFF LEASH. My dog is 13 years old, and still in great shape, and I know Smilin Dogs have alot to do with that. Konrad, the owner, has a following of dog-owners who couldn't get along without him and trust him implicitly. If it all sounds too good to be true, then log on to their website and see for yourself. Personally, after spending an afternoon at the ranch with my dog, I don't think the pictures on their website do justice to just how special this service is. I send my dog Monday through Friday while I'm at work, and I only wish I had found this service long ago.

Smilin Dogs is a Godsend! I love this service. My 3 1/2 year old Irish Red and White Setter has been going once a week for 3 years. He is picked up on Friday mornings by a fabulous dog walker and is placed in a large crate with a soft rug and a treat in an air conditioned van. He is driven to Pescadero with other dogs (his Friday buddies), to romp off-lease in the creeks and mowed trails of a 750 acre ranch. Cian knows when the phone rings on Friday morning that it is his day to go to Smilin Dogs. He goes crazy and would bolt through the door if he could. After a 2-3 hour hike, he is hosed off and is delivered home late in the afternoon tired and content. The owner and very hands-on manager, Konrad Thaler, is extremely professional, competent and safety conscious of all of the dogs. I trust him and his dog handlers implicitly and can not recommend this service highly enough. Oh yes, and if you choose this service for your dog, ask for a video of your dog playing at the ranch. You will see how your dog loves his day out.
