About Us

Bernie's was established in 1989 as a retail pet supply business in San Francisco's Mission District, located on Valencia and 18th Street. Bernie's expanded to include grooming in 1992 and moved to Valencia and 25th Street. Concerned about the health and happiness of shelter dogs, Bernie's partnered with SF Animal Care and Control in 2006 and located her grooming shop inside the shelter. In 2011, Bernie's opened a second location, City Dogs in SOMA. City Dogs has an open concept whereby every aspect of grooming is viewable by the public.

Our Services

At City Dogs, the grooming process starts when you schedule an appointment for your dog. We will discuss your pet’s specific needs and ensure that your pet receives personalized care.

Our grooming standards include proper hair removal from the ears, nail clipping and filing, examination of the skin for any abnormal growths, anal glands relieved, bathing with a deep cleansing shampoo, conditioner and finishing rinse, sanitary clip and a stylish hair cut that suits you and your dog's needs.

Deluxe Bath

Practice preventive care for your dog! We use gentle yet deep cleaning shampoo that is mild on your pets skin – even with frequent bathing. So bring your pet in weekly to keep them, and the rest of your family, clean and healthy.

Touch Up

We recommend a TOUCH UP every four weeks to keep your dog tangle free and feeling freshly groomed. TOUCH UPS consists of a bath, conditioner, ears cleaned, nails trimmed, anal glands expressed, and a face, feet and sanitary trim.

Full Grooming

FULL GROOMING consists of a bath, conditioner, ears cleaned, nails trimmed, anal glands expressed, and a consultation beforehand to ensure the haircut your dog receives is comfortable, attractive and maintainable.


Proper brushing of your dog's teeth allows for an examination for cleanliness, broken or damaged teeth and any abnormal growths. Visible health problems will be communicated to you for referral to your vet.
