What Our Clients Love About Us
"My dog loves everything about DogTired. She goes nuts when they arrive. The outings are long, which is great and my dog comes home tired. She loves to fetch, swim and socialize and she gets all of this with DogTired. She'll typically be picked up around 9am and brought home around 11:30am so the hour long outings are quite long indeed! Then, she crashes the rest of the day, dreaming of her time with her pals from DogTired. Highly recommend."
Brie & Wei Wei
"Unique organization that provides the best exercise for your dog!! I honestly haven't found this kind of service anywhere else in San Diego or other cities. Craig and all the pack leaders are awesome!" - Wei Wei
Quincy, Kona & Andrea
"I have meaning to write this for months...DTSD is THE best dog service ever out there. The owner Craig is like family to me and during hard times and good times, he is always there to help. I can rely on him for anything for my kids. He understands how important my kids are and how neurotic I am about them too :). He operates DTSD like a true business and very professional. I would recommend DTSD to any Fur baby mom or dad; you will not be disappointed." - Andrea
Hugo & Kristen
Dog Tired is an awesome company! Our Rottweiler Hugo is definitely a handful. He did an intensive training bootcamp with the very best trainer in San Diego and we've been socializing him since the beginning. However, Rotties are by nature very high maintenance pups and this one especially needs CONSTANT attention, activity, and training... Dog Tired has positively affected us in so many ways. Thank you!
Boomer & Katie
"I have been a DTSD customer for over 2 1/2 years now. I've used them for day trips to fiesta, training, and overnight boarding services. My pup is always exhausted after coming home.
Their trainer, Sara, has helped me a few times over the past two years to address my pup's ever changing issues, including separation anxiety, crate training, and fear of walking at night...On top of that, if she takes my pup during the day or overnight, she helps to reinforce good behavior. Talk about a win-win!"
Stella & Gino
"DTSD is simply, AMAZING! I was so relieved to find a company with this kind of service for my golden retriever. The online scheduling is so great and easy to use. My dog always comes home tired which is perfect for a young active dog like herself. Use this company, you won't be disappointed!"
Sophie, Penny & Katie
"We just started sending our dogs out with Dog Tired, and I couldn't be happier or more impressed. Craig is wonderful- so thoughtful and friendly and amazing with my girls! I always look forward to receiving my little report after their adventure- I get the best pictures! I highly recommend this service!"
Loki & Leighann
"Dog Tired is simply amazing. My dog is very nervous with new people, and he immediately took to Craig. He comes home happy and tired after running around with other dogs. He has even gotten more social at the dog park. They also provide really cute photos and updates about how your dog did. You can really tell that the team cares about your pup."
Roxy & Cheryl
"They are awesome at Dog Tired. We had them take care of our Roxy over Christmas weekend. They picked her up and dropped her off. We got emailed updates every evening with pictures. Daily romps on Fiesta Island with other dogs. Lots of toys and love and never in a kennel. Every night I was excited to see what Roxy had been up to. The only thing is, I'm pretty sure Roxy had a better vacation than my husband and I had. Thank you Dog Tired for taking such great care of my baby!"
Luna & Amber
"This is the best dog walking service EVER created! If I could give them 6 stars, I would. You can't ask for better customer service or more caring people to look after your fur babies. Dog Tired offers a number of different services, but I choose the all day pack adventure - which means my pup gets to go play for the ENTIRE DAY at a beach or open field with other doggy friends... I absolutely trust Dog Tired with the well being of my dog and HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!"
Coco & Ehab
"I can't say enough great things about Dog Tired; it's hands down the best dog care service I've ever used! Every afternoon, my dog, Coco, is whisked away in an SUV with her friends and taken out for an afternoon of running, swimming and rolling in the sand on Fiesta Island. She is returned bathed, happy and exhausted.
And while anyone can take a dog out for playtime, what sets Dog Tired apart from everyone else is the exceptional service and care that Craig and his team provide..."
June & Danielle
"We are regulars and have the same dog walker, Rachel, take our puppy to the park in her "pack." Rachel loves all her dogs and is so caring with them. When I see the Dog Tired employees at the dog parks it is obvious they are having fun at their job. There are many choices in dog walking companies, and they are not all equal. I don't think we would have had any other dog walking company take care of our puppy."
Nola & Divina
"I echo the other reviews of DTSD. Short of being home with you, your pup could not be in better hands than with Craig and the other wonderful dog lovers at DTSD. Nola comes home exhausted and has to nap for the rest of the day (I spy on her by webcam). She literally does not move for 2 hours. My pup never smiles in my pics but she does in every one taken by DTSD. There's photographic evidence that your dog is having a blast... I'm so glad I found DTSD!"
Whitby & Lindsay
"Dog Tired SD has been a godsend. My pup loves it, and I love the responsive, easygoing, and professional manner of Craig and the team. So so lucky to have this dog care service in SD."
Brady & Megan
"DTSD has been a wonderful resource for myself and Brady. I recently rescued Brady from the East Coast and initially he was having a hard time adjusting to yet another change in his life. But being picked up by DTSD and taken to his favorite place (the beach!) allowed him to get out and exercise and socialize with other dogs which lessened his anxiety and reduced his stress levels... Brady is now settling happily into his life in CA and a lot of the credit goes to DTSD.
Thanks "Guys"! :-)"
Wellington, Willow & Stacy
"This has been wonderful! From the photos and notes I get everyday its clear that my pup is having a blast and getting the socialization and exercise he needs. I have so much more peace of mind while I'm out working all day. Craig is awesome and very accessible and communicative. Love these guys!"
Coral & Sarah
"I move around a lot so I have sent my belgian malinois to a handful of doggy day cares and dog walkers - this place is the BEST!! My pup comes back exhausted and they even send you photos of your pup playing while they are out so that you can rest assure they are having a WILD time!
So glad I found this service! This is exactly what my high-energy K-9 needed! So much better than any doggy daycare where they keep the pups in a small room with urine on the floor."
Oscar & Oma
"Craig, thank you so much for inviting me being a part of your dog-walk. I appreciated.
I was impressed with the the way you handled your pack. I learned a lot. It was a great pleasure to meet you. Stefanie from Germany (Oma of Oscar)"
Lenny & Kay
"Dog Tired has been a total lifesaver. Our Doberman was used to getting plenty of runs with us before and after work until his baby sister arrived. Getting less exercise was adding more stress to the mix... Since he started dog tired 6 months ago it's totally turned around! The scheduling and auto pay are super convenient and the daily feedback (with pictures!) is so great! Literally don't know why anyone would
hire a dog walker when for the same price your dog can "join the pack"!"
Ryko & Lacey
"We left our year and a half old, handful of a pup with Craig and his team for a long weekend while we were in Mexico, and we are so happy we did! They took such good care of him, and sent us updates every day (they took the best pictures of him!)... super accommodating to our schedule... It was so nice to come home to our dog and not have to pick him up and/or wait an extra night to see him like we would have had to do if he had been at a kennel. We will definitely be bringing him back"
Smedley, Gertrude & Kasie
"I highly recommend choosing Dog Tired for your dog boarding needs! They watch my two English Bulldogs and I've had a great experience! Extremely accommodating especially when it comes to pick-ups and drop-offs. They understand my pups health quirks as well. Scheduling is a breeze too with everything online."
Billie, Aaron & Chelsea
"Dog Tired has been a great service for us. Craig is very easy to get along with, always responds quickly to texts, and clearly knows and cares about the dogs. The website/online reservation system is a breeze and allows you to make reservations last minute. Highly recommended to anyone in the PB area."
Franky & Alicia
"My husband and I had our first child last year so our Extremely high energy and cuddly Boston terrier was soon no longer "the" baby... I stumbled across Craig at Dog Tired. It was perfect! Franky loves other dogs and loves being outside and racing them and jumping over them. Match made in heaven. On top of that Craig has just been great with us and working with our busy crazy schedules. Above and beyond what any business owner would do and just a really cool human :)"
Tica Rose, Nyx & Kathleen
"I can not say enough good things about Dog Tired. They have worked with my puppies for over a year now. The service is top notch. I have been a dog walker myself. It's not an easy job. Craig covers all the bases. Not only does he have a love for each & every dog for which he takes care, he makes a point of knowing each dog personally. He gets to know his clients and then matches them not only with his employee but also with each dog in the pack... I know my two girls are in the best of hands."
Dak & Shilpa
"Dog Tired has been picking up Dak, my 2 year yellow lab for 1 year now. It has been wonderful for both Dak and myself. Craig is highly dependable, very professional.. has a passion for what he does... These are qualities needed to run a successful dog walking business... I can be a crazy dog mom sometimes and text him multiple times asking if he pooped, peed, what time he was picked up & dropped off, etc and Craig is always prompt with his replies & very on-top-of-it. I highly recommend them!"
Oscar & Lena
"Craig and his team is amazing. I can always count that the quality of my life has improved, as I am working full time. They are super flexible, reliable, responsive, passionate and definitely worth the price. My pup enjoys spending his day at the beach with his pack."
Mozzie & Samantha
"These guys are amazing! I just moved to San Diego and have an 11 month old husky mix with a lot of energy! I heard about Dog Tired & got the pup signed up. The founder meets with you one on one before and gets to know you and the dog. They're very thorough, ask questions about the dogs temperament, how often they've been in off leash environments, how responsive they are to their recall... they explain their process and story. They are genuine dog lovers and treat your pup as one of their own."
Roscoe & Christina
"Craig and the team are absolutely fantastic! They're highly accommodative, very affordable, and extremely professional."
Maisy & Susan
"Dog Tired and Craig make it possible for me to own a dog. I'm an attorney and often work long hours out of the house and do not have the flexibility to make sure my dog gets out enough during the day without some help... The team pays real attention to each dog and they are quick to let me know if my dog is acting strange or if they notice any other issues. Craig even went so far as to drop off a stool sample at my vet's office... I can't imagine what I would do without Craig and his team!"
Frank, Ashley & Garrett
Dog tired was the best thing we could of done for our German Shepard, Frank. He is happy and calm now when I get home instead of stressed and crazy! Frank even comes home better trained! I also feel very comfortable leaving Frank with them and trust the staff 100% with my house key. Thanks DTSD!!
Lily & Jessica
"I highly recommend Craig and his team! They have been taking care of my Cavalier King Charles for a few weeks now and I always come home to a tired, happy pup! It's a great way to socialize her since a pack of dogs can teach her so much more than I ever could. Craig has been very accommodating, professional, and really cares for his clients (and their owners!) ... Oh! And what's better than them coming to your house to pick up your doggy for free? Thank you DTSD! You go above and beyond!"
Ricky, Vladimir & Lisa
"When I first got Ricky I went through two different dog walkers before I found Dog Tired San Diego. Craig was luckily my neighbor at the time when I started using the company and it was great. I am in the Navy so my schedule changes and often on short notice and they are always so flexible with what need from them.
When I moved they found a way to make it work so I could continue using them... These people are really my family and my dogs family and would not know what to do without them."
Boujis, Bailey & Nicole
"Craig & his team are the best thing to happen to my dogs since me :). They treat them like their own, are always on time, professional & super friendly & just awesome all around. I would recommend them to anyone. And so would my pups! They eagerly await Dog Tired every morning."
Athena & Jenny
"Dog tired has done wonders for my dog! She comes home so exhausted from the day. They are really flexible with my odd work hours and can drop her off late if need be. I would recommend dog tired to anyone! They are so friendly and truly love dogs."
Taco & Amy
What's not love love about Dog Tired!! They come pick up my pup and drop her back when she's tired!! She's a huge fan of the beach now thanks to them. Our pup was a rescue and was terrified of the beach and water when we got her but now she loves both and it's thanks to them!!!
What I love about Craig and Sally is the fact that they are so accommodating. I love the pictures they post on Instagram! All the dogs look like they're having a great time.
Couldn't recommend Dog Tired enough."
Murphy & Jenny
"Craig is truly amazing with my dog Murphy. He is reliable and takes such awesome care of my dog. Murph is an older dog and he consistently accommodates for his needs. He watches Murph both during the week while I work, weekends I am out of town and even does last minute calls too. Affordable, reliable and takes great care of my dog!"
Squirt & Heather
"Awesome service, great price, convenient and considerate service, have been able to accommodate last minute scheduling and saved my butt more than a few times now. My little Pomeranian has a blast."
Sienna & Claudia
"Dog Tired San Diego have been great with my Sienna when I work long days on the weekends and weekdays! Thanks Elara and Craig! Sienna loves her beach adventures!"
Abel & Michelle
"I got my dog, Abel, about 6 months ago and was so worried about what I would do with him when I had to work 12 hour shifts. I met Craig at the dog park one afternoon and have been using his services ever since. Honestly he has been a godsend. Dog tired San Diego is the best thing I could of found. My dog gets picked up in the morning and plays all day long. They go to the park, the dog beach, and for walk. When Abel gets home he is exhausted. I highly recommend Dog Tired San Diego to everyone."
Ron Swanson & Andrea
"My pup, Ron Swanson, started hanging with the pack when he was about 4months old (now 6 months). I know that when Ron is with Craig and the rest of the pack, he is in great hands and I have nothing to worry about. I am confident that when Ron gets back home, he's exhausted and had a great time playing. Craig picks up and drops off Ron, I mean how can anyone beat that? I am so glad that I found Dog Tired and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a dog walker!"
Bernman & Rachel
"Dog Tired has been the greatest lifesaver to date. With my busy work schedule I wanted to make sure my pup was well entertained during the day. They have exceeded my expectations by far and Bernie comes home everyday with a huge smile on his face. From beach trips to the dog park Craig and Sally know how to tire these pups out! You can't find a couple that love what they do more than these two and it shows!
Finley & Cassie
"I LOVE DOG TIRED!!! I recently got a new fur child, aka a golden doodle named Finley, and was reluctant on letting anyone else look after him. I called a few different dog walkers/sitters and Dog Tired gave me the best vibe by far! They have been walking little Fin, taking him on potty breaks, and even hosting him for their 4th of July BBQ. They are ALWAYS available when I need them and the prices are so reasonable. I cannot say enough good things about Dog Tired! You have to give them a try."
Louie & Elara
"I moved to San Diego from Boston about a month ago and was really worried about how my 3yr old Rhodesian ridge bac was going to adjust. I really lucked out when I found out my neighbor, Craig, owns his own pet care business- he has been a life saver! He has taken Louie in with his pack and takes him to the beach and the park regularly. Louie always comes home happy and exhausted- I'd highly recommend Dog Tired to anyone who wants the security of knowing their dog is in GREAT hands!"
"My rescue dog, Pepper, can be a handful and is slow to warm up. He sat next to Craig during the first meeting and really liked him immediately. I am so relieved to know that Dog tired is taking care of Pepper while I am at work! I would recommend them to anyone."
Fin & Lauren
"Craig has done a great job taking care of my 5 year old rescued shepherd. She has separation anxiety and a history of breaking out when I'm not around. After a few stints with Craig she's more social and outgoing. She's always happy to see me when I pick her up but never seems to be in a hurry to leave :)"
Kali, Brooklyn & Jen
We are transplants by way of NY, and are not always trusting of people - it's the New Yorkers in us! :) But Craig was a DREAM to work with. When you put your trust in someone to take care of your fur babies, it's a lot to ask - and Craig delivered!"
Khan, Murph & Cate
"I have an odd couple of dogs, a Siberian husky and Yorkshire terrier. My husky has tons of energy and typically does well in cage free kennels and dog parks. He of course had a ton of fun with Craig and I was pleased he came back tired after an entire weekend with Craig and his dogs! My Yorkie is your typical temperamental terrier and is very attached to me. It's hard to find somewhere that he can stay when I go away for a weekend. After a weekend with Craig, he was tired and happy!"
Django, Jackie & Annie
"We love Dog Tired San Diego, but more importantly, our Boxer Django LOVES Craig (the owner). Our pup comes home completely wiped out, and for a Boxer, that's not always easy to do! Django has a lot of fun with Craig and it's apparent that the feeling is mutual. We love the text messages with photos of Django at play, as well as the hand written notes explaining the outing they had together."
Betty & Gina
"Dog Tired is the best dog service I know!! Craig is an excellent pack leader and dog trainer! I always feel confident that my dog is in a safe and loving environment when she is out with Dog Tired!"
Penny & Cate
"Dog Tired is a great company. Craig takes wonderful care of all his dogs. I have a young Aussie and he has a great time with his pack mates every time. Highly recommended!"
Shannon & Robyn
"My dog Shannon has been with Craig and Sally's Pack from the time she was 10 weeks old. I have had several dogs in the past and always thought that dog walkers weren't necessary but thanks to Dog Tired I have a completely different attitude.
I can honestly say that it is money well spent to have your fur baby go on an outing with Dog Tired. They socialize with other dogs, they are happy, well exercised and come home rested. Its the best investment I have ever made."
