An actual home away from home

Fun for your dog. Peace of mind for you.

Whether duty calls or the beach beckons, you need to know your dog is well cared for while you’re away. We’d love to do that for you.

Our unique dog boarding situation is unlike any other available in San Francisco: Your dog stays in our luxurious, centrally-located San Francisco home with a large yard to play in. That is, when she’s not out romping with friends in SF’s great parks and beaches.

NOTE: Boarding is for Dogwalks dog walking and daycare clients only.

Why board your dog with Dogwalks

Home environment
All dogs board in Dogwalks owner Julia’s home, enjoying the company of dog friends with lots of attention and cuddle time from Julia and her staff. No kennels, no boredom, no loneliness, no stress.

Outdoor access
All guests sleep indoors at night, but have access all day to play in Julia’s large, fully fenced backyard. Is your dog more of a couch potato? Those are available all day, too.

We mentioned the couches. There are also fresh, plush dog beds! And lots of space—2,500 square feet of dog heaven, cleaned meticulously, and a large yard kept in clean, pristine condition. We’re all about attention to detail to make your dog’s stay fun and comfortable both.

Daily group walks
Provided they enjoy it and can come along safely, boarding dogs get a daily off leash group romp with friends at a San Francisco park or beach with one of our wonderful dog walkers. We work with all new dogs to teach them the skills to safely enjoy group walks.

A better behaved dog
Not only does your dog get lots of exercise while you’re away, we also reinforce good manners. You’ll come home to a relaxed, mellower dog than you left.

Pick up and drop off included
Travelling is hard enough. You don’t need to worry about leaving early to drop your dog off for boarding, or picking him up on time after returning from a trip. We do all of that for you.

The extra mile
Whether it’s an extra walk one day, reserving a favorite couch spot, or email updates on your dog’s fun while you’re away, we always look for opportunities to go above and beyond.

Peace of mind
Put all of this together, and you can relax and enjoy your vacation or focus on your work—exactly our goal for you!

Julia and the Dogwalks team have been taking care of our dogs for over ten years and we couldn't imagine our girls' lives without them. We want the absolute best care for our furry family members. Dogwalks gives us absolute peace of mind in this regard. From daily walks or boarding during vacations, we know that our dogs are safe, loved, and having a ridiculous amount of fun.
