Izzy loves Alpha Dog! I have been taking my 18 month old rescue puppy to Alpha Dog since she was 5 months old. She's a Staffordshire Terrier mix, and loves all her dog and people friends at daycare. Her all time favorite person there is sweet Katrina. When she was injured and couldn't go to to play, Katrina came and walked her, played with her and hung out with her, so she wouldn't be alone all day while I was working. Izzy is a handful teenager, and Katrina, Ashley, and Amanda know just how to handle her. I appreciate them ...

I really should have written this review ages ago... our lab, Misti, has been vacationing at Alpha Dog for over 5 years.  I would't consider leaving her anyplace else.  When I open the car door, and she sees where we are, I can hardly keep her excitment contained.  She can't wait to get inside!   This summer she stayed with Alpha Dog on three different visits.  Each stay ranging from 1 - 2 weeks.  I love that Alpha Dog sends me photos of Misti playing with other dogs.  It seems she made a new bestie this summer with a dog ...

Our Charlie LOVES going to Alpha dog, whether it is for daycare or overnight. The staff is very friendly and always lets us know how he did during the day and often send photos of him lounging with his Alpha Dog pals. I love the greeting the employees at AD give him when he comes in!  They were super accommodating with some last minute overnight needs for Charlie last week and I am so grateful!

Alpha Dog is great! My dog (3 year old chocolate lab Rue) absolutely loves it here! When we get there she starts crying and tries to open the door herself. She is always happy and exhausted when I pick her up. The staff is welcoming, helpful and flexible. We once had a family emergency and they were will to fit her in for a day even though they were booked. Rue and I recently moved up to San Rafael and we still drive down to Mill Valley instead of finding a new daycare/boarding facility. Its well worth the drive. Alpha ...

We have been going to AlphaDog for a few years now and absolutely feel so confident knowing that our dog Brody is going to be cared for with love from the top of the line staff at AlphaDog.Ashley has always been so welcoming and caring not only with our dog but every pooch that comes through the doors. That same customer service carries throughout the ENTIRE staff.The real test though is when Brody knows that he is going to be staying there. When we approach the door he can't wait to get through the door and hang out ! He ...

Amazing staff, very clean and organized facility.  Open 7 am to 7 pm and even have late pick up if needed.  Someone spends the night with the dogs too!  I was over the top impressed.  I have been using another kennel in Marin for years and can't believe that I didn't stop in sooner at Alpha Dog.  Gigi and Gilligan LOVE it.Thank you, Sean and David

Overdue review, what we are fortunate to have found Alpha Dog. We recently moved from the East Bay to Marin, and our pug, Sookie, had been going to Metro Dog in the East Bay since she was 12 weeks old. We were unsure of how she would react to a new place after 7 years, but took to it like a champ. She always rushes into the back each morning and is very puppy-like a happy when we pick her up at night. I have read some negative reviews about dogs not passing assessments, and glad for my little one's ...

My energetic Aussie has been enjoying doggie daycare and the occasional boarding at Alpha Dog- my pup is excited to go and comes back happy and tired!  The staff is attentive, helpful and accommodating.  I love the flexible drop off/late pick up times...The staff knows the dogs and can share with you who your pup has been playing with - highly recommend this spot!

AlphaDog is a 5-star facility with 5-star staff and 5-star management, and that much is apparent when things are running smoothly. However, I think you can tell more about a business by looking into how they handle it when things go wrong. This is a story about exceptional customer service in the face of little mini-crisis regarding my 4-yr old pupper, Luna.I brought Luna to AlphaDog for a weekend of boarding- I travel frequently and wanted to give my default puppy sitters (hi, parents) a break. I did my research and chose AlphaDog for a number of reasons, reputation and ...

Our Jack Russell terrier LOVES this place. We take him there once a week so that he can play with his friends. He gets so excited in the car when he sees the signage and realizes where he's going.Enthusiastic thumbs-up from me and my dog (if he had thumbs)!
