About Bijou

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
In addition to the following, I have recently completed the SF Fire Department's Emergency Response Training.

Since I had to put my dog down December 2013 (elder dog dementia), I have had the good fortune of dog sitting for neighbors and my extended DogVacay guests. I am familiar with local vet facilities and leash laws. I am fortunately located within walking distance to two excellent specialist facilities, should any emergency happen (SPCA and SF Vet Specialists). Nothing has ever happened, knock wood. Still it's good to be on the cautious side. For fun? Depends on the dog. Some cannot let the tennis ball go. Others like a stroll to sniff the 'news' of the neighborhood.

As far as the dogs are concerned, it's all about attention, food and exercise. And love. I completely adhere to their normal diet. (Having a new house is enough change:) The meet and greet is a very effective kick off for the transition for a short stay. Now that I've been hosting for a few years, it has been terrific for me, the dog and the owner(s). Even the most aloof dog usually becomes a snuggle pup before our time is up. That said, no matter how much we bond, when the Mom/Dad comes home I'm yesterday's toast. I don't take it personally (small joke).

At the time, I'm working at home doing costume and sewing projects. So, it is nice to have a companion. And an excuse to take a walk! I raised my price to $60. a day because of taxes (not my idea). My place is on the first floor. Street access is easy. Last night I dreamt about an adult chocolate poodle. Go figure?

I'm writing this review a little late but I wanted to be sure to recommend Bijou's services. We used her for several days to board our dog Nugget while we were away.

When we returned, Nugget looked happy and well-fed so we know that she was in good hands.

Pokie is not an easy dog to deal with as he's a senior and is very specific, but he was well looked over. Bijou kept me posted on Pokie's daily shenanigans and it is much appreciated!
Pixel had such a wonderful time with Bijou that she barely wanted to come home with me when I picked her up!
