The entire team at Dogpile are amazing. I have a Whippet puppy who they literally have trained into being a good canine citizen with the dog socialization. Someone is always with the dogs watching their every move. Check them out on Instagram just to see how much fun the dogs have @dogpiledogs. They upload videos almost every day. My Whippet, Olivar, goes in every morning excited to start the day and by the end of the day he's zonked! Thank you, Dogpile! You've given me a new and even better relationship with Olivar.

AMAZING dog daycare and boarding. The staff is so relaxed and clearly love all the pups that come in (and the pups love them too)! Super responsive and easy to get a hold of and post frequent updates on their Instagram. Love Dogpile!

By far my favorite dolkey daycare my dog has boarded with them multiple times and starts going nuts and gets excited as soon as we turn on the block where dogpile dogs is.

Absolute perfection. They treat our dogs like they are part of their own family and, honestly, that’s how we view them. Thank you!

We’ve been bringing our rescue dog Kida to Dogpile for a couple months now and they have been AMAZING. She is a shy dog so we were very worried about finding a doggie daycare that can accommodate her and that she’ll have fun in. Dogpile welcomed her with open arms and have been wonderful in giving her the space she needs while also providing her tons of opportunity to socialize. We love seeing updates on their Instagram! They have also been extremely responsive through email and have helped us gain the confidence that our dog Kida is always in good hands when she’s there.

The BEST daycare / boarding facility I’ve found for my dog, Fuzz. He LOVES it there, and I know he is good hands, especially for extended stays. They truly care for the dogs there as if they’re one of their own. The facility is top notch with indoor and outdoor play areas. Look no further!

My dog Pinto loves Dogpile, he gets so excited every time he goes there. The owners really care about every dog and are super careful and loving. They also update their instagram every day so you can see what the dogs are doing, it's very fun.

Great people, facility, and location! New owners are super friendly and seem really invested in letting your pupper live their best life.

Our absolute favorite place to take our pup. Caring and attentive staff. We love taking our pup there for treat weekdays and for any boarding needs we have. Staff are responsive and kind as well as just loving on our pup. We love the physical space he’s in there as well and that he can hang with his friends from the neighborhood.

Share review Embed review Write an update Edit review 9/30/2020 We've been taking our cavalier, Louis, to DogPile since February 2020 and he absolutely loves it! He generally has anxiety and is a stage 5 clinger, but when he realizes we are close to DogPile he starts tugging at his leash and is super excited to go inside. He doesn't even say goodbye to his mom! DogPile has a huge outdoor/indoor space with lots of room for the pups to run around, Louis is exhausted when he comes home. We like that he's not stuck in a kennel or a small room the entire day. We were able to go inside before the pandemic and it was always clean, didn't smell, and the dogs looked happy and well-cared for. It's super easy to drop off Louis either for the day or if we have errands to run. Someone is always there and they are flexible with drop-off/pick-ups. The prices are reasonable and the DogPile team could not be nicer! They post pictures and videos on instagram (@dogpiledogs) and it's fun to see Louis and the other pups playing.

Dogpile is great and the staff there care so much about their dogs! Our pup can be shy around new people and dogs and we were initially really nervous about the idea of daycare. The crew at dogpile were really patient with our pup, sent us updates and pics throughout her first day, and answered all my messages about her. They were honest about how nervous she was in the beginning and by the end of the day you could see her open up and become just so much more comfortable. Dogpile went above and beyond to take care of our little girl and we are so grateful. Our pup came home tired and happy! They also have a really fun IG where you can see all their dogs hanging out having a great time. They are very responsive and just generally a great place to work with. Their location is a little too far for our girl to visit regularly, but they are a fantastic daycare option!

My pup gets super excited when I drop him off at Dogpile. Staff is great and sends photos and vids to let you know how your dog is doing. They accommodate special instructions with meals, which I really appreciate.

We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE DogPile Dogs! We used to bring our last dog to Wag Hotel, but with our new dog, we did some research and wanted to try something new.. And I'm SO glad we did because we absolutely LOVE the personal attention that Dogpile Dogs gives to all the great doggies there! When you think about Wag Hotel, it's great, they have all these super fancy spa treatments for your dog (who could care less). What do dogs actually care about? They care about having a great time with other dogs. They care about personal connections with the humans watching them. We always thought that overnight stays locked in a cold, hard, clear box were normal (at Wag Hotel), but after seeing the crate-free, cozy cots and mattresses at DogPile and multiple successful overnight stays, DogPile will forever be our go-to for our doggy day care and overnight stays. Not to mention, our dog never comes home smelling like pee anymore (a common occurrence at Wag). Everyone at DogPile is personable, genuine, and loves dogs. It's family-run, the same folks are always there, so it's so much more personal than other doggy day cares. They truly take the time to play and get to know your dog.. Check out their Instagram page to see for yourself. The people are amazing, you get the same consistent care, and it's always fun to see posts of your dog on their Instagram page!

We love dogpile! They are the perfect match for our high energy, playful pup. Dogpile's kennel-free / open-space concept is far superior to more traditional daycare groups that we had tried out. Our pup is always ecstatic to get in and play with her friends. It feels like leaving your dog with trusted family; I can tell that the Dogpile crew loves Maya as if she was theirs!

I've been loving taking our pup here since she started. The team is friendly, remembers the dogs, takes great care with any special instructions on food or concerns, and she always comes back happy and tired. The question 'are you ready for daycare' means she comes barrelling down and sits next to the door - she can't wait

Cannot say enough good things about Dogpile. I have a rescue with terrible separation anxiety and he loves coming here. Even though the facility is large and gives the dogs a ton of space to run around the service is so personal it feels like you are leaving your dog with family. Everyone who works here is so kind and really cares about all the dogs. We prefer leaving our dog here vs having a sitter in our house as our dog is so well looked after. One trip our dog was getting anxious at night and the guys took him in to sleep with them. I have also gone in on cold days and they have put coats on all the short hair dogs. These are just 2 examples of the many tiny things they do to look after the dogs under their care. I could give you a dozen more. Our dog always sprints in and then sleeps like a log when he gets home which otake as a good sign! THIS IS THE BEST DOGGIE DAY CARE IN SF!

We love Dogpile more than we can possibly express. We've lived in a lot of different places and there was always a bit of anxiety leaving our dog at various daycares and boarding facilities. Our older dog would have to be carried in. Not here! They basically run up to the door. Colin, Julia, Amy, and Philip are the greatest. They have known our names since about the second time we brought the dogs and they definitely know the dogs. I love the flexibility there (no appointments or set drop times) and they are always able to get us in for an overnight. Our very energetic puppy is always so so happy and sleepy when she gets home. I honestly don't know what we would do without them. 10/10 would recommend.

We LOVE DogPile Dogs! Our husky mixed has been going to Dogpile for over a year now, and she enjoyed her time there. It's a lovely family run business. The indoor and outdoor space are spacious and perfect for the dogs to run around. Everyone is really friendly and truly cares about the dogs. I trust that my dog is in good hands with them. I am so very happy we found this place. Highly recommend DogPile!!!

Dogpile Dogs has been a mainstay in our family since we moved to SF 8 years ago, we really can't say enough nice things about them and I'm not sure what we'd do without them. We first took our Goldendoodle 'Fargo' there, after researching extensively all of the options in SF. We haven't looked back, they took incredible care of Fargo, and now give that same level of care to our Bernedoodle puppy, 'Marty'. They are fantastic, Marty can't run up the entrance fast enough to get inside :) If you have a dog and need daycare and/or boarding, DogPile Dogs should be your first call/email!! They'll take great care of your pup - and you'll enjoy watching them have a great time on the Dogpile Instagram :)

Best place ever!! I’ve taken my dog to a lot of daycares and Dogpile Dogs is one of the top! They seem to be really intuitive about dog behavior and I feel like my dog is always safe there. They listen to any special requests you may have and will send you pictures of your pup. They’re always friendly and willing to answer all your questions, especially for anxious dog moms like me ????

We love Dogpile Dogs! Flat price from 7am to 7pm. The location doesnt look as fancy as a Pop-colored Wag thing, but it's not really what a dogs needs, Dogpile dogs has everything a dog needs: a huge place with an inside area and outside area where dogs are free to come and go during the day. And their owners, Amy, Julia, Phillip and Colin are great people! Our dog @sookiethejindopup loves them!

Awesome place for dog daycare. They have big open space for your dog to run. My dog loves this place and the staff (Amy, Philip) are very helpful and nice.

We took tours of a few dog daycares in the area and felt like we resonated the most with the staff and grounds at dogpile. Having brought our dog here a few times now, we couldn’t be happier with the team, who’ve always been incredibly …

I’ve been taking my dog here for years and Lucy loves it! They have large open outdoor areas where the dogs play as well as indoor areas where the dogs can relax and nap. I’ve takenLucy to many other places in the city and sometimes she wouldn’t even want to get out of the car. At Dogpile she leaps out of the car and runs in...i guess to see her pup friends. She seems to love it.

I have been bringing our dog here for about 6 months. She and I love it here. The staff is super friendly and responsive. There is off-street parking for easy drop-off and pick up. The facility is clean and spacious with a great drop-off entry area. The facility is separated by big and small dogs, and both have in-door and out-door play areas. The dogs are always calm at any time of day, and I have never heard a dog bark once while I am there! When I pick up my dog at the end of the day, classical music is playing, I can see my dog lounging on a dog cot, and she is exhausted from playing all day. We just left here for a week over the holidays, and when we picked her up she was definitely tired from a week of playing, but she was calm, and while I know she was probably happy to see me, she we was just super chilled-out. I cannot recommend Dogpile Dogs enough.
