About Us

 

At Sniff and Go, we believe that being a truly great dog-walking and pet-sitting service is all about making owners happy and pets even happier. We insist that there’s no limit to the peace-of-mind that a pet service can provide for its clients, and so, since 2012, we’ve partnered with an innovative method for tracking the entirety of our visit, keeping you informed on everything from the walking route we traveled with your pet, their bathroom activity, and even photos and notes about how the visit went.

Since opening our doors in April of 2009, our staff has been constantly committed to providing a matchless experience for pet owners in San Francisco. We recognize that leaving your beloved pet with a stranger can seem daunting, so we utilize an in-depth and strenuous hiring process to ensure that each and every member of our staff is of the utmost skill, trustworthiness, and character. Because our mobile technology provides total information and accountability for all our employees, each member of the staff carries with them the guidance and expertise of the business owners themselves. Every member of our staff is also bonded, insured and legally connected to us as an employee— not a contractor. This means that we’re accountable for the entirety of our business, and we take that responsibility very seriously. We know how special your pet is to you, and so we make each and every pet special to us.

 

Our clients love Sniff and Go because of our commitment to excellent communication (no more sending emails into the unknown, wondering if you’ll ever get a response!) as well as our dedication to understanding their pets’ unique needs. No two dogs or cats are the same, and before we even begin working with your pet we ensure that we know all there is to know about their health, diet, exercise and emotional needs. You’ll receive a report at the end of each visit detailing where we walked, your pet’s bathroom trips, and any significant developments that took place during our time with your pet.

Here at Sniff and Go, we love your pets (almost!) as much as you do, and we look forward to ensuring that you return to find them safe, healthy, and as happy as can be. Reach out to us today and let Sniff and Go become your best friend’s second-best friend!

Paul

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by and taking a moment to get to know our crew here at Sniff and Go. My name is Paul and I have been able to call Professional Pet Care my passion since 2010. Being a San Francisco native, I am able to easily navigate our doggo friends throughout all the well known (and not so well known:)) sniffs of The City. When it comes to our feline friends, there’s nothing better than the purrs and play time that comes from kitties that know they can trust our care. I look forward to meeting you!

Jon

Jon

My name’s Jon and I love working for Sniff and Go. I love walking, animals and being outside so it’s the perfect job for me. My favorite part about the job is when you first open the door to a house with a dog/dogs that you have really developed a trusting relationship with and the dog is super excited to see you. It always puts me in a better mood and state of mind, even if I’m already in a terrific mood.

 

When I’m not working I like being outdoors, reading, meditating, socializing, spending time with friends and family and my own cats, listening to music, laughing and learning.

Ensley

Ensley

Hi! My name is Ensley. Most of my family and friends affectionately call me, “Enz” or “Enzy.”

It was obvious right from the start that I was an animal lover. I loved cuddling my first kitties (Sun Bear and Siddy/Siddhartha Kitty) at nap time as a baby, and playing with my black standard poodle (Pony), and my bunnies (Plum and Eddie) whom I had proudly named as a toddler. I also loved riding my appaloosa (Topper) and vaulting on our horse (Misty) at camp as a child. And now I love hanging out and snuggling with my current pets – my dog Buddy and my cat Miss Kitty – and all the sweeties I’ve had in between.

I am truly grateful for the opportunity to step back from the mainstream and get to spend my days walking and loving your fur babies. There’s nothing better than being greeted with the excitement and unconditional love that our furry friends innately have.

I look forward to meeting you and your paw pals soon!

Thank you!

Stephanie

Stephanie

My name is Stephanie. I’m a photography major hoping to have a minor in film making. I’ve grown up with dogs and cats my whole life. I had two hamsters and a rabbit once, which were a cool experience to take care of.

I enjoy being around animals because they level me out in a way people cannot. I feel happy to be able to take care of them and be someone they get excited to see. It makes me feel really good when they start recognizing me. There’s never been a day when I’m not liking my job. The animals are what make it amazing.

When I’m not working I’m usually doing some art, hanging out with a friend, or laying with my kitty. One thing some people don’t know about me is that I used to be a competitive cheerleader and hip hop dancer for about 10 years. I competed against the world in 2011 and 2012. We were in the top 10 in the world and top 3 in the U.S. It was really exciting!

Growing up back in Los Angeles I had always been around animals, from owning my first Guinea pigs to my current Husky and Multipoo! I used to volunteer at a shelter and loved getting to know all their different types of personalities and having them become super trusting of you. When I moved to the Bay I was lucky enough to find Sniff and Go and continue to work animals, specifically with your pets when I’m not studying, or geeking over films! I hope to meet you both soon!

Hey, I’m Matelina or just Lina and I’m born & raised in San Francisco. Growing up I traveled a lot so I was never around to explore the city so in high school I’d take the bus wherever felt right and learned to love and appreciate SF. From then on I was constantly on my feet finding new parks and pathways to wonder along. I’ve always been an animal lover and consider myself a friend to all. I love connecting with nature and getting to know all animals on a personal level. I currently have a German Shepherd (Panzer) and a Malamute (Balto) and I often spend my free time cuddled up or wrestling with my dogs.

Hi Everyone!

Hope all is well. I’m a retired US Government member with over 30+ years of combined service with the Department of Defense & Department of Justice.  I’m a San Francisco native and have had a love for animals all my life- cats, dogs, fish, turtles, birds and more.

I’ve spent the greater part of my professional career defending our way of life here in the United States. Educationally I’ve obtained my Masters of Business Administration and look forward to completing my Masters in Computer Information Systems at Boston University.
 
In my spare time I love making memories with my family and our American Bulldog, Echo- she has a very strong bark, hence the name Echo. I also enjoy cruising in our 1960 Volkswagen Panel Bus. We love Bay Area sports teams, especially the Niners, Warriors, & SF Giants.
 
I look forward to meeting you and your family pet member(s).

Hi, I’m Flynn.

I’ve been living in San Francisco since 1989, but I was born and raised in Palo Alto, CA.

Growing up in Palo Alto I have had the opportunity to be around lots of different animals – from hamsters and snakes, horses an ducks, to cats and dogs. But my true love is dogs. The love and companionship a dog can provide is life changing and too often under-appreciated.

I enjoy mountain biking, working out, cooking, BBQing and spending time outdoors.

On most weekends you can find my wife and I exploring (biking, hiking, swimming) Northern California with our dog Dash.
