Working with Tammy has been life changing. The amount of love and care she puts into her work has really shown in her training with our little Whiskey. We had opted for the 3 week board and train. Before meeting Tammy, I was worried my dog would never be able to break his fearful anxiety and special "selective hearing" condition. He was stubborn to a fault, and that worried me. Upon consultation, Tammy eased my worries and agreed to take him on. 3 weeks later and he was a different dog!!! I was amazed. He is well behaved, listens to every command, and even tolerates other dogs. It's been a couple of months since the end of the program. She has worked with him weekly since then and he continues to make great strides while remaining consistent. We even have decided to start boarding him with her once a month just so she can keep him in check. Lol Tammy, we adore you. We thank you so much for everything! Whiskey thanks you, too!

Marina is the best walker we could have hoped for. Our dog is so specific and he absolutely adores Marina. I don't know what we would do without her. She communicates with us all the time and is able to handle our boy. We trust her and feel comfortable boarding him with Marina too. Happy dog, happy owners.

Christina took care of my cat, Fosse, while I was away for Thanksgiving. She first came to my house to meet Fosse and see exactly what feeding him entailed. I could immediately tell that she really likes and understands animals. While I was away, Christina not only fed him twice a day, she also brushed and played with him. He was one happy cat when I got home! I would highly recommend Christina and plan on using her again over Christmas.

Paul's punctual, responsible, and very clearly loves animals. It was such a load off our shoulders to know that he was watching our animals while we were away!

Being away from home with work or travel and knowing that my animals are well cared for is an invaluable service. I am grateful to have Pam looking after my cats and dog. Her love and dedication to animals is apparent in her work. When I told her about a litter of feral kittens living in my back yard she lent me a trap and offered her assistance in trapping, handling them, and adopting them out.

Stella is great! She responded promptly to my advertisement and was very flexible in accommodating my pet care needs. She and her family are very pet friendly. Our pet loved their company and his stay with them. Throughout the boarding period Stella kept sending pictures to keep us posted about our pet. I will recommend her and also will hire her services again.

The first time I met Laura I knew she was a huge animal lover. My sheltie, Charlie, is usually reserved around people he doesn't know, but he took to Laura immediately. In fact, he couldn't wait for Laura to take him on his daily walks - whenever she arrived, he would be at the door ready to go. Charlie also liked to go to Laura's house for pet sitting. I felt very comfortable leaving Charlie at Laura's house because the other dogs she was sitting for were always friendly and never aggressive toward Charlie or toward each other. I highly, highly, recommend Laura Tait for all of her pet services - she's a real gem.

Rachel is the best she walks my dogs but even better she makes sure they have fun when they're being walked. Rachel specializes in small groups and all the dogs get the attention they desperately need and deserve. Her specialty is taking the dogs to the beach and giving them a great day out on the town. I highly recommend Fog City Dog Walkers to anyone needing their dog exercised and taken out on an adventure instead of just on a walk around the block like the other dog walkers often do.

I have never used any pet services before I used Rhonda. She was very kind and alleviated any fears I had about leaving my dog with a stranger. She kept us posted the whole time via text and pics. I will definitely use her services again. Ray

Over the years, I’ve sought Amy’s advice for my doggies and kitties because she’s smart, compassionate, and as invested in human success/happiness as animal success/happiness. She has great ideas, the know-how to turn seemingly impossible situations around for the better, and she genuinely loves the animals she works with as if they were hers. My animals and I are way better for it! I trust her with my animals.

Elizabeth is just fabulous! She has been taking care of my two Labradors, Lucy and Betty, for five years. Elizabeth takes them out for a walk 3 times a week, feeds them, gives them medication when needed (even administers ear wash to prevent ear infections- common to labs). My girls need lots of attention and Elizabeth gives them lots of love, She is like their second mother! They are so happy the days that she takes care of them. I always feel my girls are safe and confident that they are getting the best care possible. I highly recommend Elizabeth for dog walking, boarding or pet care of any kind.

Iʻve been delighted with the service that Isabel and her Surf Dogs company have provided me and my dog Ressie for the last couple of years. Isabel is flexible, always accommodating last-minute changes in my schedule. Sheʻs also great for overnights or long-term boarding--Ressie always comes home a happy little dog, whether sheʻs been on a several-hour walk or an overnight stay. She enjoys all her pals--human and canine--at Surf Dogs. And so do I!

Animals are my absolute favorite. Some people call me an "animal whisperer" because I know how animals are feeling when interacting with them and what they want. I own two dogs myself, a German shepherd and a Chihuahua, and they mean the world to me.

I'm currently a student at UCB and looking for a part time job working with animals. I've grown up with animals all my life, including many farms and animals of my own. I have free days except Tuesday and Thursday with exceptions and would love to spend time with all lovely creatures. I love to take dogs to parks or go on hikes but have experience with all different kinds of animals.

About

Dog training and boarding is my passion. Every dog need a pack leader, I can teach you how to become one! Dog boarding is in home, dogs get access to big backyard fully landscaped and sleep in our den. Dogs receive exercise daily.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
