Since that time, City Dog has relocated to it's current location on 550 Park Boulevard to accommodate the growing needs of our downtown City Dog clients.

CITY DOG TESTMONIALS
"Absolutely love City Dog! They always get my pup in for grooming, teeth brushing, toe nail clippings, and any other doggy needs. Their staff is so friendly and nice. I love that they will call you when your pup is done, so you can go wonder around downtown for a while. They do have a great selection of treats & toys, too" Brandon T., San Diego
"Just picked up my Springer spaniel and he looks amazing!! This is the 4th groomer Ive taken him to in San Diego because the other ones butchered his fur and left him patchy. City Dog did an incredible job! He smells good and he didn't sit around in a kennel all day until his turn. He was only there for an hour and a half! Kelly T., Scottsdale
City Dog is the ONLY place to shop in downtown San Diego for premium dog food, tasty treats, and indestructible dog toys for our Staffies! Gary and his team are extremely knowledgeable about feeding options and always ready to lend a hand with everything from flea treatments to a DNA test for our new rescue pup! We love their great lines of collars and leashes, too! David & Jennifer, San Diego
The only place I like to take my dog to do a self wash. City Dog is clean and carries the best dog food, Acana, and the staff is always friendly. I live nearby so parking is not an issue for me, but I like to go mid-day or after a beach trip to bathe my dog. They have three tubs, all different heights which is hard to find, and they have a spray hose that hangs above that truly helps conserve water while you are sudsing away. They supply clean towels at your disposal and everything is labeled properly, so cleaning up is easy. They offer Shampoo and conditioner, but I always bring my own. They also have three drying stations. I would't take my pampered pup anywhere else! Jess G., San Deigo
