We've been going to Fog City Dogs for over a year now and we love it. Kosmo (our dog) goes about once a week for playgroup and recently a 13 day stay and came home happy and healthy. We received report cards and updates constantly and felt completely comfortable our entire trip! The staff are so friendly and nice to Kosmo despite the fact that he can be a bit rowdy at times. We love Fog City Dogs and wouldn't go anywhere else! More...

A great place that I trust to leave my precious furbaby for a few hours or for the night if needed. She is very anxious but I know they are gentle with her and give her time to warm up to them. She also gets great social time with the other doggies there. More...

I love this place - we bring our dog for daycare regularly, and she adores the staff (which is saying something, she really doesn't like most people). Fog City dogs is great!

My pitbull Bean is easy to misunderstand - he's shy with new people and situations and will bark at the 'scary' thing or attempt to escape, sometimes both. Because he's a bully breed, people sometimes mistake his nervousness for aggression. But he's actually amazing with other dogs and is friendly with people 5 min after meeting them. I wasn't sure what to expect when bringing him to Fog City for the first time. He was shaking with nerves and barked at the staff person who attempted to greet him. But they were patient and could see he was warming up slowly. We agreed that I could leave him there, but I was still unsure how the day would turn out. I checked in at lunch, and he was doing great! They let me know that he needed a couple breaks from the group, which I appreciate as it keeps my shy guy from becoming overwhelmed, but otherwise was having a blast. Each subsequent visit, Bean has been more excited and less anxious, until now he basically drags me inside to get playing. Thanks Fog City for seeing my tough-looking pup for the sweetie he is!

Been taking my dog Hunter here throughout the last 3-4 years. Once in 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2019. Each year was a good week-long stay. I miss their online cameras that they used to have back in the day. However, the every-other-day report cards sent through emails are very helpful. Love the staff here. Our dog was a stray rescue puppy, so we were always worried how he'd be in these environments. However, Hunter seemed to do just fine every time. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. Their pricing is reasonable compared to other places, which is why I also consider coming back each time. Thank you Fog City Dogs! More...

I'd like to update my review as one of the owner/managers of Fog City has most certainly made an effort to keep our business and keep us happy. As promised, I received emailed "report cards" and a photo of our boy and he was happy (as usual) when we picked him up. I have also noticed more Instagram posts which is fun. Still miss the webcams, but you can't have it all. Thank you, Fog City, for taking good care of us and our Frankie! More...

I don't know what I would do without these awesome people to look after my dog every day. I've been coming here for months (and occasionally boarding him at the other location) and they've been nothing but kind, courteous and professional every time I've interacted with them. They keep an eye out for my dog and let me know how he's doing each day, going as far as to call me immediately when something seems wrong (his bark became hoarse the other day, for example). Fog City makes my dog incredibly happy and my life so much easier. More...

Our pup came home very tired and happy so we know he had a great day. The staff was very friendly and caring toward our little guy and us. The only thing I didn’t like is that we were not allowed to view the facilities to see where he would be and what he would be doing and we did not get a report at the end other than he was a good dog. Otherwise, would totally do it again and definitely recommend. More...

First time Ive boarded our 8month old puppy. It was a hard decision because he is so young but also because we will miss him daily. However, we had an emergency where our ceiling was collapsing due to water damage from our neighbor. I yelped many boarding facilities and found Fog City Dogs to be very popular. They have been awesome to our pup and us! I would definitely recommend. More...

Fog City Dogs is the best doggie care we have ever found. Kosmo is a large rescue pup with special needs (he is deaf) and he loves Fog City and all the staff. We are so happy having Kosmo stay there for the day and we've left him there for 10 days. He comes home happy, tired from playing with his friends and well-fed (and smelling good from his bath!). The team there are smart, kind, caring and so professional. We get report cards which are personal so we know Kosmo is well-taken care of. We hardcore fans of Fog City Dogs! More...

We've been boarding our shy and nervous rescue dog at Fog City Dogs for over 8 years. We average about 40 nights per year, so we know the place well. Our dog is always happy to come to Fog City, and jumps out of the car, tail wagging, and runs to the door. The people who work there know her and are super loving and attentive. When I pick her up, she's always clean and looks very happy (I do usually pay for a bath but when I don't they rinse her off). The people at Fog City Dogs are very sweet and obviously love dogs. It's a great place and I recommend all my friends consider Fog City as a wonderful and more affordable choice to take car of their dog when they need to get away. Highly highly recommended! More...

Amazing dog boarding! Our cavalier pup Doge adores spending time at Fog City Dogs when we go on holiday. Every time he visibly gets excited when we bring him over. I also love receiving progress cards with notes on Doge's behavior on a given day. Super friendly and helpful staff. Overall, Fog City Dogs makes the whole traveling without your dog thing easy and not stressful at all. More...

I've been boarding (as well as using the day-care) my dog at Fog City Dogs now for 6 years. Murray is always thrilled when dropped off and exhausted when I pick him up (which is a good thing). The staff is attentive & friendly. I love the progress reports I get while I'm away and know he's in good hands when I bring him there. I did try another facility in the neighborhood about 4 years ago as a back up option to seand never went back as I felt FCD met all mine and my dog's needs. More...

I was desperate to catch up on sleep and cleaning in December so I checked out many options. Fog City was clean, friendly and very accommodating. I've only used their day care twice, once before Christmas and once after, but they did seem extremely busy both times for both drop off and pick up, even when they seemed to have plenty of staff around. Most other daycare services had time to chat about my dog, his needs and how he was during the stay, without feeling rushed, and a couple places even had time to give a pretty thorough tour. Most will send pictures if requested.This is one of the places that doesn't do tours and would not send me pictures when I requested them even though they said they would if I emailed a request. Not having seen the room where Oliver ended up spending most of his 4 hours, I would have appreciated pictures for some peace of mind so I could get an idea of how clean and crowded this mysterious back room was.What I have seen and smelled of their Lombard location is very promising, although only one playroom, the one for big dogs, is visible to the public. Even with a bunch of dogs hanging out all day, the place smelled very clean and the one visible play area looked clean as well. so I'm confident that they keep the place very sanitary.They do not have pickup and drop off services for people who do not have a car, so I do have to take the bus to and from since I live in the Cathedral Hill area, which is fine for me, just a quick hop on the 49 or 47, and Oliver is great on the buses.Overnight boarding is at their other location, which is way too far even by bus, so I can't use their overnight. I guess their primary location is on Shafter and that is where they have the new equipment advertised on their website. Weekends and overnights are done there as well, not the more convenient Lombard location.They do seem to care a lot about the dogs and the few people I met were very kind and friendly, if a little rushed.

Nick let me drop off my dog last minute, after I was an hour late to work because the people at my regular daycare didn't show up and were unreachable. At that point, I didn't have time to give him my dog's vet records or do full behavioral interview on the spot, and he was extremely accommodating. I will definitely be moving my dog to Fog City.

I've been taking my rescue dog Simon to Fog City in the Marina for almost 10 years - I work in the Financial District and needed more than just a 2-hour dog walk for my super active dog. Finding Fog City and Nick was key to lowering my worry-level and also increasing Simon's happiness!  Nick is the first face we see every morning and he is THE BEST!!!  His team is well-trained to appropriately manage yet also provide love and fun for the large volume of dogs that are in the building. Simon is there for 10+ hours and I am very appreciative for the love and attention they show him.  Thank you Nick and Fog City! More...

I finally found a groomer in Portland around 2009 who knew how to handle my sheltie’s thick coat, and my dog was always happy when I picked him up (which was not always the case at other groomers). When I moved to SF in 2010, I was expressing my disappointment that I would have to find another groomer—my groomer surprised me by letting me know that her mentor, Lancy Woo, had a grooming business in SF, VIP Grooming! I have been bringing my dog here since I moved to the city. Lancy and her staff, who are all amazing, take such great care of my dog. He loves going to VIP and always looks great when I pick him up. I’m so grateful for them. More...

Kosmo’s first day at Fog City turned out great. We’ve only had Kosmo for 1 week from Family Dog Rescue (another wonderful group) and he has extreme anxiety with strangers— especially with men. Of course a very nice guy was at the counter when we arrived so Kosmo went nuts. But the Fog City Guy (didn’t get his name but he is tall with a beard) was AMAZING. So patient and kind— we got Kosmo settled and he had a great day. Fog City is clean, bright, the dogs are happy and well cared for. I bought a 10 pack deal (makes $ sense) and plan to have Kosmo back frequently.A special shout-out to the Guy with the Beard— you are a Hero! More...
