Doggie Daycare

June 22, 2020

Our pups have been amazing companions over the last few months, hardly ever complaining about having their humans constantly at home and sharing the couch with us more than ever before. In fact, some dogs even tried to get in on the WFH vibes, lending a helpful paw wherever possible. And like us, our dogs missed out on much-needed social interaction as well as their regular hair cuts and grooming sessions. Playful Paws {located at 712 Jefferson Street in Hoboken} is now open for daycare, walking, and grooming services at its new location in midtown Hoboken. So if you’re still working from home but feel your dog could use some extra attention or a chance to get the wiggles out and work on that separation anxiety, a few hours at daycare might be the perfect solution. Playful Paws is offering our readers an exclusive new client offer for a free half-day, so you and your pup can get a taste of what the fun is all about.  At Playful Paws daycare, dogs get to spend the day in a clean, safe, and controlled environment specially designed for their needs. The fun happens under the loving guidance of dog handlers who have experience caring for pets. Just as it should be, the air is climate controlled and filtered, and all dogs have access to clean, filtered drinking water as well. Dogs get to run around as if they were in a Hoboken dog park, play fetch, and spend time in a room with painted trees, a fake-grass floor, and enough space for all dogs to feel like they can take a break or play within a group. {Just like people, dogs need a little quiet time too.} Daycare services are limited to small, intimate playgroups so that the pups can get to know each other as well as the handlers in a safe environment. Playful Paws offers full day as well as half-day groups, with packages available to purchase for an added savings for those who want to send their pups on a more regular basis. Dogs get to spend time playing in a fun and inviting room and enjoy midday walks outside. Pup parents also have the option of signing dogs up for an end-of-day bath or groom so that they come home fresh, clean, and tired. Daycare is available five days a week, Monday through Friday from 8:00AM-6:00PM. {Hours will continue to be extended as the pandemic improves.} Playful Paws is different from other pet care businesses because it’s a one-stop-shop for all pet care needs. Pet parents can rely on the team for dog walking and grooming as well as daycare. A staff member from Playful Paws will pick up your pet for their grooming or daycare appointment if you live in Hoboken, which takes the pressure off having to rearrange your schedule or go outside if you’re still self-isolating. {Consider it a pet taxi of sorts.} The grooming salon offers full grooms that include a bath, deep conditioning, ear cleaning, teeth spray, and nail file + clip — and single services are also available and include a basic bath, nail clipping, and pads. You can purchase add-ons and a la carte options to get your pup looking fresh — including blowouts {yes, that’s correct}, teeth brushing de-shedding, and more.

Dog walking services are also available for dogs in Hoboken and Jersey, and everyone on the Playful Paws team is bonded, insured, and undergoes a background check before being hired. Clients have access to Pet Check Technology, which is a GPS check-in and check-out service that displays where, when, and for how long your pup was walked as well as pictures and a custom note. The team can even assist with training sessions so that pups come home with some new, better behaviors.

The entire staff at Playful Paws treat each dog with the utmost care and respect and are experienced in servicing nervous, elderly, or fragile pups. The salon is 100% cage-free drying and the holding areas are large and open-aired to ensure your dog’s full comfort.
