As a client you will receive an optional email upon both your walkers arrival and departure which includes pictures, a short note letting you know how your pup did and a map of the route taken on the walk!

Meg G.★★★★★
“We knew Brody had to be part of our wedding as he’s such a big part of our lives. We needed someone that would treat Brody like gold since he was a rescue. Along came Playful Paws who seamlessly helped integrate Brody as the ring bearer for our big day. Will from Playful Paws traveled four hours upstate to watch Brody all weekend. I can’t say enough great things about our experience. All of our worries disappeared when we knew Will was watching Brody. Having one less thing to worry about on our wedding day was great. From helping Brody focus & behave for our wedding photographer to making sure he was loved while my husband and I were busy during the festivities, Playful Paws helped us have the wedding of our dreams while including our furry man! Forever grateful!”

Sometime dogs, like ourselves, prefer the comfort of their own homes. If you will be away for extended period of time and prefer us to visit your pet at home, we will set up visits every couple of hours until your return. We will include walks and feedings, of course!

We LOVE Playful Paws! My husband and I feel so lucky to have found them. I have two rowdy and rambunctious German Shepherds. Previously I had a job which allowed me to be home to split dog walking duties with my husband…

Sofie D., Yelp

So glad we switched to Playful Paws, only wish we did it sooner! We love our e-mailed walk updates that almost always include photos. Nothing brightens our day at work more than knowing our fur baby is a pup about town, with all his own friends & daily routines…

Jackie G., Yelp

Playful Paws has been a reliable and friendly service! I have used them for about a year. They provide notifications upon arrival and a summary of the appointment which includes a map of the walk and sometimes pictures of my pup! Shanice and Cherish are awesome!..

Stephanie S., Yelp

I switched over to Playful Paws after I caught my previous walker lying and not doing the full hour walks I was paying for. My Siberian Husky isn’t the best behaved dog but the walkers from Playful Paws have been amazing…

Will you keep in touch with me while I am away so that I know my pet is doing OK? 2017-04-05T14:30:16+00:00

Of course!! Our walkers & sitters will check in with you as often as you would like. Our boarders can send you daily pictures while you are away and our walkers can leave personalized notes or send you a text/email letting you know how your pups walk went! On longer stays we can even Skype or Facetime if you want to have a chat to your furry family member. We also offer GPS check in services so that you can see exactly what time your walker came and left your home.

Who will be the person walking or watching my dog? 2017-04-05T14:30:27+00:00

During your initial consultation, you will meet with a primary walker/sitter. If you are delighted with the consultation (and we know you will be!) then the walker/sitter met during your consultation will be your daily walker or primary sitter. Sometimes we get sick or need a vacation day, so for those rare days, one of our other qualified walkers/sitters will be your fill-in.

What is this GPS service all about? 2017-04-05T14:51:42+00:00

We use a proprietary system called Pet Check Technology™ which uses mobile bar code technology to track when and where your pup was walked. Clients will receive an optional email upon your walkers arrival and departure letting you know when and where your pup was walked. The email includes pictures, a short note letting you know how the walk went and a map of the route taken on the walk! Pet Check Technology™ also allows for online billing and scheduling. There is no additional monthly cost to use this service. New clients are responsible for a small, one time bar code activation fee. Call or email us to learn more!

Are you bonded, insured and a government registered company? 2017-04-05T14:52:28+00:00

YES!! All of our sitters are bonded and insured. We even perform a background check on everyone we hire. We are confident that we have the best team out there!

What is your cancellation policy? 2017-04-05T14:50:18+00:00

We understand that things happen, just let us know that your plans have changed by 7pm the night before your service and there is no charge! Same day cancellations will incur the full walk price.

Where are you located? 2017-04-05T15:13:50+00:00

We currently service the following towns in NJ:
Hoboken, Jersey City and parts of Weehawkin

How will I pay you? 2017-04-05T14:31:31+00:00

We accept cash, check, Discover card, Mastercard, & Visa. You can choose to pay Playful Paws USA by service or receive a biweekly or monthly invoice. Please note that at this time we do not accept American Express.

This all sounds great, how much does it cost? 2017-05-25T04:38:04+00:00

Our prices are listed under each of our service descriptions. Puppies receive discounted pricing up to 6 months.
