"Consistency. I completely understand an owners need to feel consistency with the staff, and while our main priority is grouping the packs perfectly so they have fun, your dog will stay with the same dogs, at the same parks, at the same times, with the same person - day in and day out for as long as we can. Each one of our professional dog walkers is carefully vetted and trained for you by me, someone who would die for my dog! I would trust my boy, and anyone else's dog with any of my awesome teammates. In fact, I very often do.
Our staff is professional, amiable, athletic dog walkers and customer service men and women. We're all hardworking pros who are well trained and adept at taking care of the lucky dogs that come out with us everyday. We are the Best Dog Walkers in San Francisco."
Team Leader, Assistant To The Regional Director
If I had to pick one word to describe Justin it would be: hilarious. He has the rest of us cracking up constantly. When I opened his initial job application email I saw a picture attached and didn't even need to read the rest before offering an interview. I included the one that got me to the left here. He said his friends refer to him as a modern day St. Francis, patron saint of animals, and he said, "I assure you I would be a fantastic addition to your team!" True! He is the kind of dog lover that upon being introduced to a member of our packs his first response is, "I love him."
As far as dog walking goes he already had three years of experience under his belt from 2010-2013 before a long stretch of professional film and video freelance work. With his experience added we've now got more than 30 years of combined experience between all staff members!
Molly is a Bay Area native and a self proclaimed karaoke enthusiast, cat mom, dog lover, and friend to all furry creatures. Molly came to us with no previous professional dog care experience after many years in the startup space, but her enthusiasm, professionalism, and drive for learning has quickly made her a key contributor to this company. She has taken and run with our dog training materials and is now one of our strongest pack leaders with a newfound natural dog sense.
Within her first month of working here, Molly started taking on various projects with a few of her dogs and was so impactful we had clients reaching out to shout accolades about the changes they were seeing. What's more? Molly did this all on her own without any prompting or prescription from management or senior staffers. She brings structure, fun, and unbeatable care to every single pup in her pack while offering prompt and professional customer services to our clients.
"We highly recommend David and his team - they are so much for more than dog walkers - they are trainers, teachers, and above all a dog's best friend."
"We know Penny loves the Citizen Hound team because of the way she runs to the door when they come to get her and the happy, tired puppy we see at the end of the day."
"David and his team are amazing. They are caring, attentive, super fun, and I can tell my dog is always enthusiastic to see them."
