Exclusive, home-based dog daycare
All day fun for your dog. Piece of cake for you.
Some dogs need a little extra care: The young dogs so full of energy that a one hour walk just won’t do it. The old dog who just needs some company while she snoozes the day away. The nervous dog who panics when left alone. We’ve got the perfect space for them all.
Our unique dog daycare situation is unlike any other available in San Francisco: Your dog stays in our centrally-located, luxurious, clean 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 during her optional group walk. Oh—and we pick up and drop off, too.
Dog Daycare details
Julia’s large, clean, luxurious, centrally located San Francisco home.
Unlike most daycares, we’re available weekdays and weekends both, excepting major holidays.
We pick up between 9:00AM and 10:30AM and make sure your dog is home to greet you between 4:00PM and 6:00PM (though it is generally closer to 4-4:30).

Why send your dog to play at Dogwalks
Daycare dogs hang out and play in Julia’s home, enjoying the company of dog friends and lots of attention and cuddle time from Julia and her staff. No big cavernous room, no incessant barking, no rubber floors, no stress. Just a nice, comfortable home to hang out in.
Small group atmosphere
Unlike other daycares, this isn’t a canine warehouse. No big room stuffed full of dogs here. It’s literally Julia’s home. That means small groups of dogs are carefully screened to enjoy each other’s company, and under constant supervision.
Daycare guests 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 day fun and comfortable both.
Daily group walks (extra charge applies, please inquire)
Provided they enjoy it and can come along safely, daycare 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.
Pick up and drop off included
Your day is long enough. You don’t need to worry about leaving early to drop your dog off at daycare, or picking him up on time after a long day at work. We do all of that for you.
Positive Reinforcement Training Methods ONLY
We work with your dog on basic manners like building a strong recall, sitting and not jumping.
The extra mile
Whether it’s extra cuddles for an older dog, an extra walk for a hyper one, or picking your dog up from a scheduled vet visit, we always look for opportunities to go above and beyond.
Could your dog use a little more?
Our exclusive daycare program includes a group walk plus all-day hangout time. Great for dogs with extra energy or who don’t want to be left alone. learn more
On the shy side?
Our boarding set up is perfect for shy dogs. Our home environment, careful screening, and close oversight allow us to help your wallflower come out of her shell. Mixed metaphors aside, if you’d like to see your nervous dog come into her own, a canine vacation at Dogwalks is just the thing. learn more
