Private Dog Walking
Your dog deserves our full attention
Group walks aren’t right for every dog, especially in a bustling city environment like San Francisco. At Sniff and Go, we’ve been taking dogs on safe, enjoyable neighborhood walks since 2009.
Our furry friends are:
– shy dogs
– reactive dogs*
– outgoing/high energy
– and more!
*Reactivity is limited to other dogs or city triggers like skateboards, bicycles, garbage trucks, mail trucks, etc… We are unable to accommodate human reactive cases and would highly recommend reaching out to a veterinarian behaviorist.
We can’t wait to learn more about you and your dog! This is the part where we get to know each other and determine whether we’re a good fit.
If we’re a match, select your membership plan based on your desired walk length and frequency. We are currently accepting new clients for 5 days a week with a two-month minimum commitment.
Your Membership reserves a dedicated two-hour start time window at the frequency you choose. Once you reserve a time slot, it’s all yours—even if your schedule changes. After the two-month minimum, you can change your time slot or cancel.
Our dedicated dog walking service is like child care. Because we have limited time slots available, your Membership holds your space whether you use it or not. This ensures that you always have access to a reliable, high-quality dog walker who can earn a predictable wage.
We do our best to ensure a consistent experience, so your dog will be assigned a dedicated walker. Of course, life is unpredictable and there are no guarantees—but we’ll go above and beyond to make you and your dog comfortable.
Every Membership Plan includes:
The team at Sniff and Go is top notch. They have been walking our sweet senior dog for 3 years now and we could not be happier. It’s great to trust the people who are coming in and out of your home and they tailor their activities to the specific needs of each pet. They genuinely care about animals and are rigorous in their training.
I feel so lucky to have found Sniff and Go. They have been amazing with our anxious dog Maggie and I have full confidence when she’s out with them and their ability to handle her according to her many quirks. They have been super reliable and very communicative with us throughout the process. Maggie absolutely adores her time with them and cannot recommend them enough.
I cannot say enough about the Sniff and Go team! They’ve been walking my 2 year old Golden Retriever ever since I used them for a “Pet Taxi” while he was attending SF Puppy Prep. The walkers are all honestly amazing, reliable and great at communicating. They always provide great notes from their walks to make sure I’m aware of certain things they might notice with Wiley. If you’re looking for a good dog service for your special buddy, all you need to know is that I know Wiley’s getting excited for his walk when I see his tail start wagging around noon every day. I can’t recommend them enough!

Certified Dog Walkers
*Sniff and Go is no longer offering pet sitting, boarding, overnights, weekend care, evening care, or holiday care. After 12 years of being open 365, we decided to hang up our pet sitting hat, and direct focus to on-leash private dog walks.
– Current full time clients can be directly connected with one of Sniff and Go’s trained employees, for independant dog care, outside of Sniff and Go’s regular business hours of M-F 8am to 3pm (excluding holidays).
