North Beach Pet Sitter
about us
History and Background

Hi, I'm Victoria, founder of North Beach Pet Sitter. For years I was looking for a way to integrate my life with my dogs', earn a living and most of all be happy. In 1997 I found it and North Beach Pet Sitter(NBPS) was started. What initially began as a pet sitting business quickly became a full time dog walking operation as well.

As time has gone by and the North Beach Pet Sitter reputation has
grown, so too has the business! We now service many districts in the northern portion of San Francisco, including North Beach, Telegraph Hill, Russian Hill, the Marina, Cow Hollow, Pacific Heights,
Laurel Village and Presidio Heights!

At North Beach Pet Sitter, we have one primary goal - that your dog has fun in a safe and loving environment!
Our entire mission is to ensure that your dogs have the best time they possibly can whenever they are with us - whether that be by wrestling with their pack-mates, chasing a ball or enjoying a sniff in the dunes.

North Beach Pet Sitter team members are experienced dog owners and lovers themselves, and therefore treat each client like a member of their own extended family. In addition, each playgroup is carefully developed and supervised to maximize your pet’s natural needs and preferences, i.e., high or low energy; small or large size; ball-playing or just romping, etc. Unlike some dog walking services, North Beach Pet Sitter strives to provide more personal one-on-one time by limiting the size of each playgroup (usually no more than six), creating strong, healthy bonds between your dog, their canine pals, and our team members – and you, too!

If you're looking for a qualified, reliable, loving, safe and enthusiastic dog walker or pet sitter to be there for your dog when you can't, you've come to the right place!

I can't say enough about how great Victoria and her employees are! I was really nervous about having someone come into my house and walk my puppy (3 months old at the time). I really didn't want a dog walking chain to do it, but then I heard about Victoria. I wouldn't trade her for anything!! She has helped us out of so many binds. Most importantly, she loves our dog like her own. We are going on 2 years now with her and plan for many more. Thank you North Beach Pet Sitters and 5 stars for you and your team!!!
