Dogs are picked up in the mornings and dropped off around lunch time after getting a chance to run, play, sniff, roll in the grass, whatever they wanna do!
Enjoy having your dog picked up and dropped off right from your home so you don’t have to worry about scheduling travel time. We can also give lunchtime meals up one return home if needed as well as basic medications.
Get photo updates of your dog as well as a skilled professional’s eye keeping tabs on them.

Are you ready?

Set up a consultation call with us to see if your dog will be a good fit for one of our groups. After chatting during that free call, we set up a time for our two part paid trial where you yourself get to come visit our setup and see how your dog does with our crew. The second part involves checking your dog’s comfort levels with sharing car space with other dogs.

What makes our group play different?

You’re working with a force free, reward-based dog trainer who stays up to date on the latest handling and training techniques who sets up your dog for social success in the long-term as well as meeting their needs on the daily. While we typically go to rental spaces, sometimes we will do a day trip to the beach in SF or hiking on a trail to shake things up. We keep to a regular attendance schedule so your dog gets a regular group of dogs they get to know, trust, and play with minimal interruption from schedule changes. Every dog is evaluated to make sure they are a good fit — and that we are a good fit for them! We want them to be comfortable.

Service Area for Group Play and Hike

Service range using a map of the Silicon Valley area from East Palo Alto down to Sunnyvale, Los Altos, and Santa Clara
Good Sit currently requires a current rabies and both canine influenza vaccinations. We are encouraging all our pack members, private or group, to also have their Leptospirosis, Parvovirus, Canine Distemper, and CAV-1 CAV-2, Canine Parainfluenza, as we do go outside and interact with other dogs from time to time. Many of these vaccinations are available in the DHPP or 5-in-1 vaccination.
Vaccinations are available throughout the Bay Area without vet exams courtesy the services of VIP Petcare and Vetco at their popup clinics, where you only pay for the vaccinations and tests themselves, not the exam. Follow the links to find what clinics are closest to you. Please note that some clinics require making appointments whereas others are a first come, first served basis. (We do not get a kickback from them, we just like them.)
Extra considerations are Lyme and Rattlesnake vaccinations.
Proof of positive titers will be accepted.
*Pickup times are dependent on time of year, weather, and fire forecasts.
