Simply put - Metro is everything a dog and dog-owner ever needs! My dog couldn't be happier! The staff is wonderful - Katie and Meagan take personal interest in every dog in their care. My dog comes home well-exercised and socialized, and I have the peace of mind that he is well cared for during the day. Safe and clean (and I did look at several others who could not say the same thing), the staff constantly interact with the dogs, and it's great that there are seperate rooms for dogs of every size so eveyrone can enjoy their day. They do it all - grooming, training, daycare - and even give me a "report card", telling me how Odin's day was and who he played with. I would tell anyone looking for daycare or training to head to Metro!

We were having some aggression issues with our Dillon after taking her to a trainer who made the problem worse (really we think created the problem). We found Metropawlitan Dog and we could not be happier with the results and the staff. The training that our dog recieved there has made a world of difference. We also board our dogs there when we are out of town and always know that they will be cared for.

This place is everything I was hoping for in a doggie day care facility. We have young children and a big puppy. We knew that in order to have the best chance at being a well adjusted dog we needed to include opportunities for our puppy to socialize with other dogs. After taking our dog on a shopping trip to Petco, with our toddler in tow, we quickly learned we would not be able to provide the socialization we read about without help. We chose metropawlitandog after considering a dog walker and other facilities. We could not be happier with all the help and service we continuously receive. Zoe, Meagan and Katie are always available to answer questions or share little tidbits about the dog play that day. After a session of training at the SDHS we decided that some focused training for Cali would help jump start her toward good behavior and good listening skills. We chose Meagan at metropawlitandog because our experience with the daycare was caring and attentive. Meagan was awesome with Cali and we can see clearly that it is the humans in our house that need to be more consistent. We no longer work downtown but will continue to make the trip from Kearny Mesa for the quality care and attention our whole family receives. Thanks for such an awesome center, keep up the hard work. I highly recommend metropawlitandog!

We have been taking "Domino" (our puppy) here since she was 14 weeks old. She is now a year old. We couldn't be happier with our decision. We first started out five days a week and as Domino got older, cut it down to twice a week. The staff is wonderful, devoted and loving toward all dogs. Domino gets plenty of exercise, playtime, and socialization and just as important, care and love. We can go to work knowing Domino will be cared for. We highly recommend Metropawlitan Dog and thank Meagan, Zoe, Vicky and the entire staff for their devotion.

This place is top notch. My dog has been going to daycare here for a while now and we both love it! I toured several facilities and this was by far the nicest and the most clean. The staff is very caring and I feel like my dog is spoiled while I am at work! Couldn't be happier.

I think the trainer charges to much and my dog came back shy and scared also I noticed that they do not clean up after the dogs urinate in the place. I have been looking at other places and this seems to be the case at most but this place gives me a bad vibe

Thank you for your feedback. Our facility takes pride in making our environment clean, safe and fun for the dogs. Our Canine Care Representatives clean up immediately after the dogs and we use the highest quality disinfectants in the industry (the same ones used by the San Diego Zoo and Humane Society), ensuring a clean, healthy and fresh smelling facility. In addition, each one of our staff members has significant experience with dogs and continuously monitors their activity and fun throughout the day. We also have webcams that are accessible to owners and our "virtual visitors" to check on the happenings at Metropawlitan Dog throughout the day. You are always welcome to call us and discuss you concerns so we can take the action needed to ensure we continue to be the premier dog care facility in San Diego.
What would I do without Meagan Karnes, pet specialist and Staff at Metropawlitan Dog? Atticus, my Sheltie from life's storms, and I adore this spot. The staff is courteous, conscientious, friendly, intelligent, always welcoming. These folks LOVE our dogs; they treat them with respect, firm boundaries and affection. For an indoor daystimulation center, they have the facility spot-less, er, no pun, intended. Meagan is our constant advisor, dependable, seizing each opportunity for growth and enjoyment for my sheltie, Atticus, and her other dogs. Meagan has been my dog care specialist for almost four years now. I recommend the MET to anyone who loves their dog/s, needing daystimulation and unquestionable monitoring. Atticus comes home tired and happy; what more could I ask? Thank You!

I have researched all the dog facilities in town and this is far and away the best place to go. Both of my dogs attend twice a week and they love it! Great staff, prices and service. Highest recommendation. The doggie webcam is a plus too!!!

I live downtown and have a new puppy. I am able to drop him off in the am and know he's in great hands. The owner is awesome along with her staff. You can tell quickly they are dog people and that they truly enjoy what they do. My little guy absolutely loves going in the morning. Very new and modern facility and it is more then competitively priced. If you don't check this place out your are completely blowing it.

We take our three dogs here a few times a month for doggie day care, and two of our dogs have been through the beginning training class! We give Metropawlitan Dog our highest recommendation for all those downtown doggies! Great staff, great facilities, great location!
