San Francisco is a booming city—the second most-densely populated in the United States, in fact—but it isn’t just full of people, it’s full of thousands of pets too. We love how pet-friendly this incredibly city by the bay is, and it’s the perfect place not only to own a pet, but to book an experienced dog sitter. The city is equally famous for miles of rolling hills as it is for classic cable cars to help visitors and natives alike navigate this fascinating city. San Franciscans enjoy miles of amazing off-leash dog parks and free-roaming beaches to let your canine companion blow off some steam while making new friends. No matter where you live in San Fran, from Parkside to Nob Hill, there’s a sitter listed on Rover right in your neighborhood.
