Unable to find a nearby shop to supply their Frankie and Cheeko—a chihuahua and a chihuahua-terrier mix, respectively—with accessories, dog owners Kattya and Patrick took matters into their own hands—they opened their own pet boutique in Union Square. At Cheeko B Pet Boutique, they shelve food and treats alongside gear such as collars, leashes, and grooming supplies, outfitting dog and cat caretakers with tools that rarely sacrifice style for function. For example, designer dog outerwear from brands such as Ruff Ruff Couture and Urban Hund shield pooches from the elements and the judgmental stares of style-savvy squirrels. DailyCandy praised the store in 2008 for its sophisticated tastes in four-legged fashion, deeming it a "Trendynob pet hub" where you can "class up your canine."
Combining personal training with play-care, The Grateful Dog caters to canines with an active and stimulating schedule plus a 1:6 handler-to-dog ratio. Over the course of each 12-hour play-care session, day-tripping doggies will enjoy two to three walks, including jaunts to breezy Fort Mason, as well as one-on-one time with a trainer and play time with a handler. The Grateful Dog also pampers pups with organic treats, filtered water, and mini massages before letting them loose to run in circles and bark at invisible aliens free of guilt or any sense of propriety.
Morph's menu is small, but it packs a wallopingly big punch of Japan-meets-Thailand flavors that change with the seasons. Recent first-course offerings included crispy fried-potato strings, coiled into a nest around a stuffing of chicken, potatoes, and veggies sautéed in yellow-curry powder ($8), and fresh oysters served with lemon, fried onion, and cilantro sauce ($9). Entrees at the eatery range from light sea fare (such as a miso-marinated cod served with fresh summer veggies and alfalfa sprouts, $12) to innovative takes on traditional Asian flavors (Morph's chicken is enhanced by yellow curry and broccoli swaddled in a snuggly pancake, $11).
A magazine about canine culture, The Bark melds readable articles about animal behavior and health with the pooch-related ponderings of writers including Augusten Burroughs, Ann Patchett, and Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Mary Oliver. Subscribers who read the current issue out loud to their bibliophilic bichon frise can absorb an article by Camille Ward and Barbara Smuts, which focuses on how dogs resolve conflicts, or snicker at Rex and the City author Lee Harrington's sly skewering of a dog lover's foibles in "The Chloe Chronicles."
With a stylish expanse of brand name products, Proof Lab outfits aspiring boarders with all they need to dexterously maneuver decks around watery and cement-covered bodies. Prepare for a day of carving through waves with rental of a surfboard and wetsuit ($40), or flex bristling arm muscles without swapping bodies with Mr. Universe by renting a standup paddleboard ($40). Proof Labs' surf and skate swamis carry threads from Patagonia, Volcom, Quiksilver, RVCA, Hurley, and Billabong, as well as designer shades to shield eyes from half-dressed pipes. Equip surfboards for the fall swell season with a new traction pad ($22–$38), and keep toes toasty with an aquaiferous pair of O'Neill or Xcel surf booties ($40). In addition to hosting regular demos and outdoor events, Proof Lab makes connections with local skating societies by granting budding sky artists free access to their indoor skate park to test new boards, practice tricks, or recreate scenes from Xanadu.
A cage-less doggy day care and grooming facility, AlphaDog pampers pooches with outdoor frolicking and sudsy shampoos. Before their stay at AlphaDog, all dogs must take part in a one- to four-hour temperament trial.
Customers with crowded schedules can drop off their loyal labradoodles at 7 a.m. for a full-day stay that keeps them out of harm's way as their owners attend to important workday business, such as fomenting against widespread usage of split infinitives. As the dogs bound around the springy turf of the day care's 5,000-square-foot outdoor play area, canine companions can sample carefully selected crunchy treats and make new friends before the 7 p.m. pickup time.
We're a new kind of store, focused on healthy food and top-quality accessories & supplies for pets. Everything we do centers around helping our customers maintain the health of their pets, and enrich their lives. At Woodlands Pet, you can treat your pet family with the same loving care as the rest of your family...
When a haggard, helpless stray pup wandered into the backyard of Mrs. Carter H. Downing house in 1940, he had no idea he was about to trigger the creation of one of San Francisco's most respected animal hospitals and shelters. After searching fruitlessly for a safe shelter for the dog, the determined Carter Downing took the frightened animal home with her, along with all of the other pets caged up in the local pound. After setting up her own impromptu pet adoption agency, Downing proved to be successful at connecting stray and homeless pets with loving families. More than 65 years later, Pets Unlimited carries on Downing's vision, maintaining a network of foster care, community education programs, and a 24-hour veterinary center. The work of the dedicated staff keeps dogs and cats off the streets and puts them right where they belong⎯in the loving arms of humans and Sesame Street characters.
To support their work, a portion of the proceeds from their top-notch veterinary center goes to support Pets Unlimited's charitable vet care, shelter programs, and adoption services. Doting pet parents can bring in their pets for routine checkups, dental cleanings, and boarding, all the while supporting the noble causes of connecting abandoned cats and dogs with nurturing homes.
You won’t see cages line the walls at K9 Playtime. Instead, you’ll notice an open indoor environment where dogs can romp, sip from fountains burbling with fresh water, and socialize with other canines and friendly staffers. To make their stay even more accommodating, the facility installed certain zones with K9 grass, a durable artificial sod specifically designed for dogs to aid in proper outdoor potty training. In addition to keeping them happy and active, this social environment makes dogs more receptive to behavior training. Using positive methods, K9's pet experts can correct issues such as separation anxiety and fear- and insecurity-based aggression toward strangers, as well as help potty train them.
At the end of the day, furry visitors either go home or stay overnight for boarding, sleeping on comfortable beds. Staff members are always present to ensure safety and security.
With up to 1,100 square feet of outdoor space, private suites, and splash pools, Wag Hotels would be a swanky destination for any human. But as much as they might want to—and as much press as they might have read about the hotels—bipeds aren't welcome to spend the night at either of the hotel's locations. Instead, cats and dogs rule the roost at these luxury pet resorts.
All locations are open 24/7 and offer more than 10,000 square feet of indoor playrooms where pups romp around. Spacious boarding rooms with flat screen TVs await canines spending the night while two-level kitty condos keep cats entertained with built-in exotic fish tanks. And for top dogs, Wags offers Ultra suites outfitted with raised Queen beds and in-room aromatherapy dispensed by employees. Animals can even indulge in the hotel's spa, which offers such grooming services as oatmeal shampoos and pet tattoos.
To ensure each four-legged guest's visit is comfortable, Wag's team employs the Wag Care 360 approach. This approach includes sanitizing the facility regularly and allowing owners to check in on their pets via the hotel's web cams. Wag also provides dog training courses.
As lifetime dog lovers, Ashley and Doug Bunker were discouraged by the overcrowded and grimy conditions they found at many of the dog daycare centers near their home. So they decided to open up their own dog daycare, SF Hound Lounge, where they could give pups exceptional attention in a clean, spacious facility. SF Hound Lounge has a 7,000-square-foot main play area as well as a separate play area for small dogs and large, lung-bearing goldfish. Staffers supervise the dogs at all times and disinfect shared toys and bowls daily. In addition to the cage-free boarding loft, the facility includes a self-serve dog-washing area stocked with shampoo, brushes, and nail clippers.
Precita Bark keeps pooches clean with full and self-service dog washes. With either option, the staff supplies everything necessary, including towels, all-natural shampoos, and pompoms for the ankles of balding poodles. The groomers also administer doggy spa treatments, including blueberry facials. And before dogs and owners head out, they can grab treats and toys.
The biggest dilemma facing urban dog owners is how to keep Mr. Woofers stimulated and healthy while you’re out at work for nine or ten hours at a stretch. Of course, with those long sedentary office hours, it’s likely that those same owners aren’t getting enough exercise themselves. Enter: fit BERNAL fit, which looks to solve both problems. The Bernal Heights studio (and its Glen Park twin) provide a supervised play area for four-legged buds, while the humans burn off the calories over on the gym side or at one of the many yoga mats. A recipient of PETA’s Most Progressive Fitness Center, it’s a great alternative to doggie daycare for people who nonetheless worry about their pets’ mental health – and their dog walkers can help pick up the slack mid-day or while you’re out of town.
Dog boarding without kennels. It may seem like a curious proposition, but the family-run team behind Citipets, run their center based on the philosophy that dogs function best when they're part of a pack—overnights included. Further, the duo believes kennels cause anxiety and provide dogs no comfort from nightmares about cars chasing them. Instead, dogs bunk down in communal sleeping rooms where classical music eases them to sleep.
That's just one way Citipets provides special care for each furry visitor. At daycare, dogs are separated into groups by size and temperament during their full day of play. In the 5,000-square-foot outdoor area, they wrestle on artificial turf and play with one other and the dedicated staff. Indoors, they take over 9,000 square feet, with plenty of nooks for tired dogs to recharge with a nap or curl up with War and Peace.
Just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, experience an introduction to coastal cousins—northern elephant seals, california sea lions, and harbor seals, at the Marine Mammal Center. Open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week, the center's docents and experts teach visitors about these aquatic creatures, and the pollution that endangers them and their ocean ecosystems. Visitors can see the marine mammal patients from the observation deck and watch volunteers and veterinarians in action. Through donations and programs like Adopt-A-Seal, any animal-lover can buy fresh fish and medicine for a rescued seal or sea lion.
