Looking for assistance with your puppy for SF Puppy Prep?

 

Rate = $50 for AM Pick up (730am to 830am)
Rate = $35 for PM Pick up (2pm to 230pm)

We have been working with SF Puppy Prep since 2016, offering pet taxi services, to and from school. The process of picking up and dropping off puppies can be tons of fun❤! But there is also a lot of responsibility that goes into the logistics of making sure it’s done within a positive and safe environment.

A typical PM routine for us includes:

2:00 PM -2:30 PM Pet Taxis

  • Use of a clean and reliable vehicle.
  • Having two employees on staff so one person can always stay in the vehicle with the puppies that are waiting for their drop off to take place (we love that cool a/c or warm snuggles!).
  • Supervised and clean bathroom breaks for any puppies in the vehicle longer than 60 minutes.

Once back home after school:

  • We get specific instructions for the drop off routine
  • Give the puppies up to five minutes to potty before being secured in their holding place*
  • Refresh water bowls
  • Give treat toy (if requested)
  • Secure crate/ex-pen
  • Secure home

FAQs 

About Us and Insurance

We carry general liability insurance, are bonded, carry commercial auto insurance, and workers compensation. We are a team of 10 employees (not independent contractors) that must successfully pass a criminal background check, go through 40 hours of training, pass a veterinarian taught Pet First Aid and Pet CPR course and then continue ongoing education through a professional behavioralist and trainer based system that covers all topics of dog and cat care. Sniff and Go LLC is registered with the City and County of San Francisco, since 2009 – Business Registration #1012621.

Scheduling

All services come with an online scheduling system that confirms service requests are ready to go. This system also is helpful should you decide to continue services after puppy school – we offer both daily dog walks and cat sitting. After completing a service, you are sent a summary of events along with photos of our day:).

Travel

Most clients will have a fabric travel carrier they bring their puppies to school in that can be left at the facility. Please label these carriers with your puppy’s first and last name so we know which carrier belongs to you. If you prefer for your puppy to have a treat toy of some sort inside the carrier with them, that can be left in their cubby or in their carrier with instructions to do so.

*Potty Breaks

The routine at SFPP includes a nap inside their crates right before being let at for the 2-2:30 PM pick up. Once nap time is over, the puppies are let out – they typically will relieve themselves at this point (right around 2pm). Sometimes the trainers are unable to confirm who did and didn’t eliminate after their naps, so we give the puppies another chance before being dropped off back at home.

The five minute limit is so we can still budget our time while out doing drop offs. Since we don’t know if the puppies relieved themselves ~2pm, the puppies typically will let us know if they need to go within the five minutes. If your pup does not go within the five minutes and they keep having accidents, we can discuss a custom option for you! If they relieve themselves right away, we thenontinue the drop off process.

Puppy Visits and Beyond

Sniff and Go is primarily a daily dog walking and cat sitting business. We are able to offer the pet taxi services because we work as a team to help simplify your daily routine and because we have all the insurance policies in place to do so. Should you need midday visits (for example: your puppy needing to stay home from school, you are looking for weekend help, you are looking for daily walks after school is complete) we would be happy to help!

Keys

AM Pet Taxis: Varied

PM Pet Taxis: Please leave two sets of keys inside your pet’s carrier for first day use. If you only have one set available, we can use a lockbox on site or discuss other options. Keys are then anonymously labeled so they can’t be traced back to your home.

Payments are set up and processed through our online scheduling system.
