Our goal is to help each pet feel and look their best for themselves and for their adopted family. The experienced staff at City Dogs grooms your pet as if they were their own – with tender loving care – using organic shampoo and conditioners that are the highest quality in the industry.
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.
We provide expert grooming services for the other love-of-your-life – your pet – in an enjoyable, stress-free environment.
Same day, walk-ins and quick turn-around appointments are often available at both our locations!
City Dogs employs top of the line, dog loving groomers, dedicated to the care of your furry family member.
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.
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.
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 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.
We are available 7 days a week. Closing hours vary from day to day. We close 30 minutes after the last grooming is completed for the day, usually between 3pm and 5pm.
Bernie’s Grooming is available Tuesday through Saturday, book online or call for an appointment.
