nice place, looks cool, i like it


I called SFHL asking if I could view their facility at a convient time for them, to see if I was interested in taking my dog there. I was very rudely told that was not an option,...

Editorial review from Citysearch 5/13/2015

I found what I need for my little puppy in this store. The staff are accomodating and I love that they are also dog lovers themselves. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 5/1/2015

I always bring Mitty, my two-year-old cat whenever I go out of town. Glad that I've been able to spot a great offer in this store's pet carriers products! The product is of high quality and it's great for going outdoors. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/19/2013

A client for 11 years and 3 dogs! Nowhere else I would go in the City! My boy Omri (Coton de Tulear) was one of SFHL's first charges, his baby 'brother' Diba (Snoodle) was next to join the party at HL. Now my newest baby, HushPuppy, (mini-Poodle) is a fan... Small dogs have their own space with one another--important to my guys... Day care, boarding, it's the best!!! Like a sleep-over party for pups... more

Dogs Perfect Life 8/4/2009

My bichon, Jake, has been going since he was 7 months -is now 3 years - and dearly loves it. He goes for day care once or twice a week for the play and stimulation of being with the other dogs. I investigated other places, but no where else comes close to the care and attention that he receives here. Pros: excellent day care, excellent boarding Cons: no cons more

Skeptics now Believers 5/6/2008

We left our precious Havanese with the Hound Lounge for overnight boarding for a week as we traveled East to visit our daughter in college and couldn't take her with. We called and were told she was doing fine but until we returned home and saw her; one never knows. Our dog was very relaxed and in great shape. We knew instantly that she was well taken care of. I would highly recommend the SF Hound Lounge to anyone without any reservations. more

Perfect for our somewhat neurotic pooch! 6/30/2007

We've tried several doggie day cares, and Hound Lounge is the only doggie daycare that recieved the approval of our two dogs. They love it there! One of our pups is very gentle and sweet but has severe sound phobias and can't be left at home alone for extended periods. We've tried other daycares but had bad experiences with her crying the whole way to center, and she even tried to escape one facility. Then we found Hound Lounge and now everyone is happy. The staff clearly love the dogs and give them alot of attention. Our dogs love going there and we drop them off knowing they're safe, happy and well cared for. Pros: Caring and safe environment Cons: None! more

best doggie day care in SF 2/1/2007

my portie Hudson LOVES going to the Lounge! The staff treat her with great kindness, and she's always happily tired at the end of the day. I've also boarded her there over several weekends, then ultimate sign of trust. Bring your pooch to the Lounge! Pros: caring staff, clean facility Cons: sometimes hard to park in neighborhood more

Best of Breed Doggie Day Care 1/31/2007

Great owners and staff who know every dog individually. I feel completely secure leaving my 80 lb. baby with them every day, knowing that he'll play and be well taken care of, rather than sitting around all day waiting for a dog walker to show up. Availablility of nail clipping and baths is also great. Nice little perks like remembering my dog's birthday with treats. I couldn't be happier. Real attention paid to each dog's well-being. Pros: Excellent care. Convenient hours. Nice little perks throughout the year. Cons: None. more

Terrific doggie day care 1/28/2007

The Hound Lounge is terrific. Ashley and Doug run a great business and hire very caring and diligent staff. They pre-screen all new dogs to insure that they will fit at the Hound Lounge and then provide personal attention to insure that each dog's individual needs are met. I can drive up to the Hound Lounge any time of the day and it is quiet--no dogs barking or howling--just the sound of paws playing. I drive past at least 3 or 4 other doggie day cares on my commute to the Hound Lounge, but feel it is worth going out of my way in order for my dog to have great care and lots of fun while I am at work. My dog has been going to the Hound Lounge for almost 3 years. Pros: Great staff and management, large space, clean, quiet, friendly more

SadieChi's 'Other Home' 1/25/2007

This a great place for a shy, little dog! Sadie Chihuahua has been going for over two years. She likes it here as much as she can like any place and that's saying something for Ms. Timid. They have a separate small dog area, yay! Professional, clean, safe, fun environment and caring, responsive owners/staff. On-site grooming - it's the best Sadie's ever looked. Plus boarding services (with some prereqs). I love seeing her wiggling her li'l butt when she sees the staff. Pros: Separate small dog area, caring staff, clean facility, extra services more

Happy place for dogs! 1/24/2007

We've been sending our dogs to SF Hound Lounge for the last six months, and they really seem to love it there. Pros: loving staff, good facilities more

A Home away from Home 1/20/2007

When my dog Jagger first started going to 'The Lounge' he was 3 months old and got to hang out in the 'Small Dog Area'. Being a Swiss Mountain Dog the staff knew that it was only a matter of time before he was one of the bigger dogs in tha facility. They took the time to take Jagger out of the small area and into the big dog area so he could start to get use to hanging with the big guys. Not only was that a thoughtful process but Doug the owner would make videos that he gave me when I picked him up to show me how he was interacting with the big dogs. 8 months later he is now over 100lbs. He use to come to work with me a few days a week but it was clear he liked hanging with the Lounge Staff and chasing his pals through dog houses and barrells more than laying on the couch in my office and listening to me make calls all day. Pros: Thumbs Up Cons: None more

Simply The Best!!! 8/23/2006

I recently relocated to the West Coast and was nervous about finding a safe and fun daycare for my dog. My nerves were quickly settled once I met Ashley & Doug, the great owners of this top-notch facility. I appreciated the fact that they wanted to meet my dog to make sure that SF Hound Lounge was the right place for him. The entire staff is friendly and more importantly LOVES dogs! They showed both kindness and patience while Bate got adjusted to living in a new city and it has been such a relief to know that when he is there I needn't worry about him at all. Bate passes out before I pull away from the place so I know he's having a great time. I would feel just as comfortable leaving a child with them (not that they would want that!!!). I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a safe, reliable and immaculate daycare facility. Pros: safe, clean, reliable more

Best Dog Daycare in the City - bar none ! 6/25/2006

I interviewed several doggie daycare businesses in and around San Francisco before selecting SFHoundlounge. None of the others could compare to what these folks offer. On a daily basis they must have an average of 30-40 dogs in thier facility, and yet when you walk in the front door you can't smell dogs! The place is spotless, clean, and plenty of fresh air. They are constantly cleaning, picking up, and disinfecting. You could eat a meal in the middle of the dog play room ( about 5,000 sq ft.) and enjoy it. I'm not kidding ( although you might have noses in your plate ). Pros: Clean, great people, friendly Cons: parking is limited but fine for drop off / pick up more

The Best in Doggy day care! 5/31/2006

My little dog Mochi has been going to SF Hound Lounge for almost a year, and we both love it! Everyone is so nice and treats her like thier own pet. I'm always informed on her behavior and who she played with each day, as well as anything new I should know about. She's never had any issues with the other dogs in day care, and SF Hound Lounge knows how every dog interacts with others. I even got a video of her playing during day care. They are all professional and extremely courteous. Your dog would be lucky to have such a fun and safe place to play every day! Pros: great staff, great value, convenient more

DOGGY DAY CARE! 5/25/2006

This is one of the best places to get your dog to stay at a day care, they treat your dog extremely well and the workers there are extremely nice to the dogs. Not only do they babysit your dogs, they manage to even teach them some manners too! My dog became much more sociable with other dogs and it was great to see her getting along with some instead of barking at them like crazy. more

Dog is in Love! Trustworthy 5/5/2006

Our pup has been going to the SF Hound Lounge for over a year. The two owners are SO nice. They really show a sincere interest in him. Its not like he is just another dog. I appreciate their proffesionalism and screening process. Lets face it, dogs are a part of the family for many of us, and feeling like they are in a secure and safe environment is paramount. Pros: good location, easy drop off, great people more

HORRIBLE customer service 2/6/2006

I called SFHL asking if I could view their facility at a convient time for them, to see if I was interested in taking my dog there. I was very rudely told that was not an option, but I could pay $20 for my dog interview (necessary if I want to enroll my dog in daycare there) and view the facility at that time. I explained I wasn't ready to enroll, just comparison shopping. They wouldn't let me peek without paying, which is insane. Every other dog day care place has let me come by, and has been happy to answer my questions. Don't take your dog here, if they're this rude to people imagine how they treat dogs. Cons: rude customer service, manager is not nice more

Puppy Heaven 1/14/2006

SF Hound Lounge staff is AMAZING! My small dog Renzo leaps out of the car when we arrive. The seperation of the big and small dogs is great. The staff are very caring - and provide specia attention to the dogs needs. Also lots of reinforcng of good dog manners. I have to relocate to NY and the hound lounge will be the toughest thing to replicate. Pros: Cleanliness, Kind, High Quality Care more
