Fog City Dogs is San Francisco’s premier dog activity center. With 2 convenient San Francisco locations, Fog City Dogs offers dog daycare and overnight dog boarding in a fun, social, and safe environment. Fog City Dogs on Lombard Street in the Marina has been providing dog day care for San Francisco dogs since 2002. During the day, all dogs get to go on outdoor, leashed walks and are in supervised playgroups all day long. Dogs come here for supervision, socialization, and playtime and they go home healthy and happy.

Fog City Dogs on Shafter Avenue in Lower Bernal Heights provides both dog daycare and overnight boarding. Dogs play their way through the day much like at the Marina daycare with outdoor, leashed walks and supervised playgroups. After a busy day of playing, dogs that stay overnight will have individual rooms for meals and a good night’s sleep. Behavior training, bathing, and nail trimming services are also offered at both facilities. Lastly, our Doggie Webcam is available for owners to peek in on their pooches throughout the day. At Fog City Dogs, safety and well being of your dog is our number one priority. But we’ll also do our best to make sure your dog enjoys his time away from home. Fog City Dogs offers all the services your dog needs to stay healthy and safe in a fun and social environment.

I have nothing but praises for Fog City Dogs! My baby girl, Chandler, has been going to FCD since April and she always comes home happy, tired, and ready for a nap! Melissa, Logan, and the rest of the team are all professional, accommodating, super helpful, and so loving of my Chandler. They take amazing care of her, especially when I boarded her for 10 days earlier this month. They went above and beyond by sending me photos, videos, and report cards while I was away. They helped me relieve my anxiety of being away from my baby girl. Whenever I go to dog parks, I make it a point to let other dog-parents know about FCD, their amazing services, and topnotch staff. FCD, thank you for making my baby girl happy and well-loved! She loves you back :)

This is a great place for your best friend. Staff and management have earned the five stars, and are wonderful to all of the dogs put under their care. But don't trust my opinion; your dog is the better judge. My dog is always excited to see her friends, both 2 & 4 legged, at Fog City. There's never an ounce of hesitation to hop out of the car and go to the gate...unlike going to the vet. She's been going for over a year and I never worry about her well-being and safety. If you are looking for a trustworthy and skilled doggie day care, I highly recommend Fog City Dogs.

My dog Ziggy loves every visit to Fog City Dogs. They have taken great care of her and offer the most affordable, no-frills daycare/boarding in SFC. The staff is extremely helpful and kind. Can't recommend this place enough!

Great place for the dog! Handlers really care about the dogs and I've never had a problem with boarding or day care in either location. They're the only ones who can cut her nails. I'm a little sad about their recent price increases and package "deals" and it did affect whether she boarded there or with my friends the last time I needed overnight care. I fully understand the need to raise prices, especially in SF, though. For those people who don't like the temperament test-um, don't you want them to know the personality of all the dogs to avoid problems?

I've been taking my (new) 2 year old rescue here for two months. My most important observation: my dog leans in / tugs, with tail in wag-mode, at every arrival, and he comes home tail in wag-mode and exhausted.


1) People: Staff at FCD genuinely enjoy being with and caring for dogs. I see that in how they interact with my dog, and how they often show off other dogs in their care and discuss breeds and personalities.
2) Regular updates: Melissa/staff provide updates on my dog's activities and behavior, and let me know which dogs are particular pals with mine.
3) Special situation care: In one instance, my dog was nipped by another while playing - a very minor injury to his ear. I was notified quickly and told the staff was on it. When I picked my dog up, the nip was tended and cleaned, and my dog seemed totally unbothered, tail on wag.
4) Partnership (training): Melissa/staff shares with me areas to help my dog along in training and partners on those focus areas.

My 9 week old rottweiler puppy; Bentley, is now becoming a regular here and he loves it! I was apprehensive to leave my little boy anywhere but Fog City Dogs was clearly the best and perfect place for him. Everyday when I drop him off, he is extremely excited and happy to be there. Nick is phenomenal and Bentley adores him. All the staff members are so nurturing, responsive, and dedicated to all doggies and owners! Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

Fog City Dogs Q&A

Fog City Dogs Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

What could be a better way to spend the day than playing with dogs. At Fog City Dogs, we play with and interact with your dogs all day long so they get lots of love and attention. Then when it's time to get some fresh air, we take your dogs outside for neighborhood walks so they can do their business. The dogs bust in the door in the morning because they're so excited to play with their friends, and we look forward to having them visit.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Back in 2002, there were hardly any options for doggie daycare. We wanted a great place to take our own dog during the day. Since there was no daycare options near us, we started Fog City Doggie Daycare on Lombard Street in the Marina. All the local dogs loved visiting with us and romping around with the other dogs. But then many of our customers told us that they'd love for us to watch their dogs overnight when they travel out of town. So we started up our 2nd location as Fog City Dog Lodge in Bayview. Here we offer both doggie daycare and overnight boarding. After 15 years taking care of San Francisco dogs, we still love our jobs.

Why should our clients choose you?

Since we have been going strong for 15 years and counting, we have lots of experience in making sure that all dogs that visit with us stay healthy and happy while having fun. Dog owners can use our doggie webcams to peek in on their dogs during the day to make sure they're having fun.
