a very reliable company.
i've tried about 4 other daycare companies throughout the bay area and so far, they're the very best!
Couldn't be happier - these guys are great! – 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!
The Extra Mile – 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.
Smelly and crowded – 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.
Do NOT Bring Your Dogs Here! – 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.
Editorial Review – Dog owners can observe their pups as they play, exercise and get socialized in a safe and loving environment.
Too small, bad customer service – 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 dog comes back exhausted!!! – 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.
My dog loves this place. – 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.
A very good option for daycare – 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.
