Steve took great care of Molly. He took her to do all her favorite things like hiking and walking and he was super responsive and shared lots of photos with me. He was really nice and understanding about my flight delay whick made me late to pick up Molly.

We love Steve.
We rarely board our senior dog Cindy. She's a nervous girl and shy with other dogs. But it's impossible to take her everywhere and those times we need to board Steve is our go to person. He's great with her and we always have a sense that's she's in good hands with Steve.

Steve is the best! You can tell that he really loves dogs and that dogs really love him. Our two bullies really like staying with him. He's very responsive both on initial contact and during your dog's stay.

The Kennel Haters Club has been here in our new location for well into the second year now, so it's time for an update! We are all settled in ...

When Steve watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We like to go to Bernal Hill in the daytime and evenings too. We also like to go to Precita Park. Both are great places to take dogs for exercise and fun.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Most of my customers like to bring their dog's bed with them, but the dogs have the run of the house, and can sleep anywhere they like...except my bed!
