Bijou took great care of our Japanese Chin! She was very detail-oriented and even wrote us a note about his stay. We hope to book with Bijou the next time we are in the Bay Area!

I'm writing this review a little late but I wanted to be sure to recommend Bijou's services. We used her for several days to board our dog Nugget while we were away.

When we returned, Nugget looked happy and well-fed so we know that she was in good hands.

Pokie is not an easy dog to deal with as he's a senior and is very specific, but he was well looked over. Bijou kept me posted on Pokie's daily shenanigans and it is much appreciated!

Full attention and love, one doggie at a time.

I started sitting/boarding dogs after my little guy went to Heaven and my neighbors asked. I've found it to be a win/win/win for all. I live in the Mission, first floor loft, near parks. For the elder dogs, there is a small park on the premises. I also work at home and have a close eye on their needs. Should anything require medical attention, I'm located two blocks in each direction from ...

What Bijou would like to know about your dog

Meet and Greet is very important for all. Health history and Vet info. Feeding directions (staying with the routine is best). Walking schedule. Any special play activity. Breeds? Not too large. Otherwise, we've got an equal opportunity situation, as long as they are house trained. (Exceptions can be made.)

When Bijou watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
The area here has been so developed of late. Sidewalks are clean, Coffee places abundant. I avoid other dogs that are tied up. The near by park is great. Bernal Hill is not far. Dolores Park is near by. Very busy with dogs. Funston Beach is great when on 'off hours'. Generally, I will not let a guest dog off leash. Safety first. BTW, I am a registered Neighborhood Emergency Response Team member.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I sleep in my loft. The dogs sleep on the main floor area. I'm fine with them sleeping on my comfy sofa with washable chenille blanket. The first night a guest arrives, I sleep with them on the sofa. Usually 24 hours is enough for the dog guest to get that this is a safe place.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work at home. The doggies are at my side full time.
