We went in on the same litter as our friends who live nearby and Playful Paws embraced the occasion and even walk the sisters together everyday! Cherish and Will in particular have been nothing short of amazing.

What our fabulous clients have to say!
I’ve been bringing my large German Shepherd mix here for the last couple of months for grooming and I had to write a review because this is, by far, the best groomer we’ve ever brought our dog to. They are extremely friendly and easy to communicate with – from the first time you call – to the time we pick up our dog. We have an 80lb dog with A LOT of hair and we know he isn’t an easy dog to groom, but he always comes out looking great and they always say how great of a dog he is. It was also nice to find a groomer that doesn’t break the bank! So happy we found them!
I’m quite pleased with the service I receive from Playful Paws and my professional dogwalker Will. I was a pro dogwalker myself in Hoboken for years. I have pretty high standards when it comes to trusting someone else with my own dog on the streets of Hoboken where there’s a lot of paw and street traffic. But I know that my dog is in excellent hands with Will! My dog gets the consistent exercise, socialization, rewards and discipline as needed during his adventures with Will. I also think Erika provides good customer service.
