a very reliable company.

i've tried about 4 other daycare companies throughout the bay area and so far, they're the very best!

We're having an excellent experience with Fog City. We've been bringing our dog here regularly for the last month and couldn't be happier. My dog has a great time (love being able to check in on him with the doggie cam), the staff couldn't be nicer and I feel like they really love my dog. I checked out a couple of different places but I was so impressed with Byron at Fog City during our initial interview that we chose these guys. And, the other dogs that come here are great, making for a really nice environment! Very highly recommend!

Pros: Staff is great - love the dogs

My dog freaks out when we get within two blocks of this place. Thankfully I don't live in the neighborhood. I come over from SOMA because Skeeter goes berserker when we get here.
I am kind of embarassed that the door can be tough to open because I heard it make a crazy noise when my dog slammed into the door trying to jump inside.

I have been bringing my dogs here from the Mission for close to five years. They have always been treated like they were a member of their own family. I've never experienced rudeness, but I have seen the place be super busy. Any time I have ever talked to the employees about a problem or a concern they either answered me or had the guys who own the place call me. If you think the place smells, its probably because they care for the dogs where you can see them, not hidden away like some other places I have tried. My dogs run in the door here but not at SFHL or PP and definitely not Wag. When I was late they offered to drive my dog home - sure I had to pay for it, but it is still a nice option.

Pros: 10 minute parking, they take my dogs to the park twice daily

Cons: closed on weekends.

All you need to do is step in their over-crowded, smelly facilities to know that this place only cares about making money, NOT your dogs.

Why would they put 50 dogs in one small space with no openings and one tiny window?

I've walked in their facilities three times now and each time I am met with a very tired worker. They say they work six hours shifts. Well, no wonder they're tired! Barking dogs for six hours can be very tiring.

GO somewhere else. This place does not care about dogs.

Our two dogs came home with Kennel Cough. As you know, that is highly contagious among dogs.

When we contacted the owners, he said he did not care, it was not his problem and was exremely rude. It is his problem if dogs are coming out with kennel cough.

There are too many dogs in a small building with no outdoor area and poor ventilation. Do not bring your dog here.

I agree with the other reviews. This is a horrible excuse for a dog day care. There is no "care" in this place, to say the least. The people were rude and did not care the least bit about my dog.

I would recommend keeping your dog home during the day and hiring a dog-walker. At $20 dollars a day for a dog-walker, it's cheaper than putting your dog in a cement cell block.

This place had awful customer service and the tiny, cement room was overpacked with dogs. I was very disappointed with the smelly, dirty area. I did not feel that they paid any attention to my dog, because it was so overbooked with other dogs.

My Siberian Husky always comes back exhausted from Fog City.

One of the places I truly trust with my dog and I've tried at least 5 other ones in the city.

They're very conscientious about the dogs and a caring staff who knows my dog on a first name basis is always a plus.

Pros: Reliable. Trustworthy.

Cons: Can't think of any.

The people here are pretty good dog watchers, but I like the other place I reviewed better because the prices are less expensive. However they do deliver the exact same service and quality and my dog seemed happy when she went to both places.

We've tried each and every single place in San Francisco, plus 1 more in Santa Rosa and another in Pacifica and Fog City outshines them all.

Maybe because they actually care about the dogs. Amazing AND shocking!!!

These people have consistently delivered a happy, ecstatic dog back to me. Completely exhausted, with a big smile on his face. Everytime we go there, my dog PULLS on the leash. He can't wait to get in there.

KUDOS, these people are doing something right :)

PROS: They actually care about the dogs.
CONS: Parking. In San Francisco though, let's be fair. This doesn't exist.

I've been taking my dog here twice a week for about a year. She comes UNGLUED with excitement whenever we drive up to the building, which is all the endorsement I need. There has been some turnover with the staff, which I think is to be expected, but I've never had an unpleasant experience with anyone, so I must disagree with the negative review. A few of the staff (the younger ones) seem a bit blase at times, but I don't take any of this personally or as a sign they aren't caring for the dogs. This place is a lifesaver for me. I just wish they were open on weekends.

We live close by and have had positive experiences leaving our two goldens once a week for 3 years. The negative review rings false to me -- they won't accept your dog without an in-depth interview and evaluation before you leave him/her, so there's no way they would not acknowledge the dog. The staff is enthusiastic, polite, and dog-loving. I have seen them walking groups of dogs near our house also, and they treat them well.

Pros: Caring staff, Will bathe dogs, Open 7 till 7

Cons: Parking, Busy street, No weekends

.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. It's also a great place for your dog/puppy to become socialized. Ever since we started bring our puppy Lab there, he's been better behaved and has improved on the seperation anxiety as well, but the thing I like most is the webcam. It's reassuring to be able to see what your dog is up to while you're at work.

Pros: Webcam, Pick-up/Drop-off, Good customer service

Cons: Smells sort of weird, lack of parking

My dog and I have had nothing but the most wonderful experiences with Fog City Dogs at both their Lombard day facility and the boarding facility in Bernal Heights. The best part is that they screen dogs so that the mean ones are weeded-out. While all dogs have their place, not all are socialized enough to be with my baby. So Fog City Dogs is easily the best choice in the city for us. The previous post says they were rude. In two years I've never seen that. That post sounds fishy to me.
