They’ve changed their methods without telling any of their customers! Took my dog here for 2 years for grooming, never any problems. I’ve asked if they cage dry, been told no. After waiting 2 hours for my dog in grooming today, I called to check in because it’s never taken that long, was told she was in the dryer, which was then explained to be a cage dryer. And that it would still be 3 more hours for my dog to finish grooming! Dog lovers beware! They do not care for your dog here, they leave them unattended for hours during grooming. Horrible service. Will not be back

Super friendly, nice, seem to be dedicated staff. Smells horrible, I get it.. but goodness it slapped me at the door. Had to leave my 2 dogs for 11 days for a business trip. That added up so fast I want to cry thinking about the bill. I'm sure they are affordable for like a 1 or 2 day over night. They came in clutch for me, so I won't complain too much:)

The only people we trust to watch our boys. They are on a few medications and there has never been an issue. They even call just to let me know that they are doing okay. Best in the county!

Kennel cough. We took our dog there for a meet and greet on Friday and now she has kennel cough. We’ve used the one in Scottsdale many times, but this location smelled and now our dog is sick. I’m sure it’s the place as we took her there for a meet and greet and that is the only place she has been. Our other dog who stayed home is fine for now. This is a real bummer for us as we were hoping it would be a great place like the one in PHX.

The staff were amazing. I was so happy that they cared so much for making my dogs feel safe and loved. Great place and people.

My dog stayed for 5 days at Bay Park. She seemed to do well. It’s pricey and there was consistent effort to up-sell on additional items which is a turn off. The food is included if you don’t bring your own. You can bring your dogs toys for their stay. They were nice enough to give a complimentary bath. Staff was nice. One drawback is that it’s all indoors.

Can’t say enough great things about this place!! Everyone is always so friendly and genuinely has their best interest at heart for my dog Tucker. I wanted to shout out one person in particular though who has truly changed not only my dog, but my boyfriend and I. We have been working with Tom the last few months to work on Tucker’s focus, leash training, and reactivity. Tom has been nothing short of amazing while working with us and Tucker. We (as dog parents) thought we had hit a wall with Tucker, as his reactivity to people and other dogs was too much to handle. We were embarrassed to even take him out in public because he almost always caused a scene. With Tom’s help, Tucker has seriously transformed. Tom has provided us with the tools to correct these behaviors and we are able to control Tucker versus him control us. Keep in mind Tucker is a 12 pound corgi mix, so he has that stubborn small dog complex. But ladies and gentlemen we have success!!! See the photos for a happy doggo

We hired Tom from Paw Commons for a 3 week board and train prior to the arrival of our newborn. We had met with many trainers in the SD area and couldn’t find someone that was the right fit for us after meeting with 3+ trainers. Our dog Louie, while a loving and fun French bulldog puppy, struggled with managing excitement levels, general obedience, had destructive tendencies, horrific leash skills, separation anxiety etc. These were behaviors we desperately needed to curb before our baby arrived. In 3 weeks, Louie became a different dog. Hes unbelievably patient and calm around our newborn, has exemplary obedience skills (sit, stay, come, place, off leash) and is now just a delight to spend time with. Basic things such as walks, went from being a miserable experience to the highlight of our day. It was clear that Tom didn’t just train Louie, but established a strong bond and friendship with him that is evident by spending just two seconds with them together. While Louie’s training was unbelievable, it was arguably more important that my wife and I had the skill set to continue what he had started with Louie to achieve further success once he arrived home. Tom went above and beyond to make sure that we understood the training methods, while working patiently to help us understand how best to work with Louie in various social settings. It is clear his method is not the same for all clients, but rather completely customized depending on the needs of the dog and their owners. If you are having any trouble at all with your dog’s training, I can’t recommend Tom possibly any more. Getting help from a professional has made all the difference, and it has been unbelievably rewarding to work with someone so knowledgeable, invested and friendly. Paw Commons is lucky to have him.

Pat does an excellent job grooming my mini poodle, Holmes. I’m pretty picky when it comes to his teddy bear cut, and she is awesome!

EDIT 7/9/2021: I signed my dog Murphy up for one-on-one training sessions with Tom at Paw Commons. I can honestly say that I have never spent my money so well. Tom has completed helped change my dog's behavior in 2 months, and he's like a whole new dog! I didn't think it was possible to have Murphy trained this well in such a short period of time. Not to mention, Murphy loves him! It is clear that Tom loves dogs and really wants to help them succeed. Tom's techniques and knowledge were incredible and I highly recommend him. For any future advanced training in San Diego, I will be seeking out Tom specifically. Paw Commons is absolutely fantastic! My dog loves coming here and will jump into the arms of whoever is there. I have had him boarded, groomed, and spent the day for daycare there. Every time has been a great experience. I can't recommend it enough! Not to mention I can watch on the webcams.

I'm greatful to have found this place. Staff always greet you with a smile and never fail to put me at ease when I drop off my son (dog) Everyone is absolutely great. Tori and Kat have incredible work ethic and have become a huge part of my dog's life and mine. I wish I could remember everyone's name. Every single staff member has helped me so much. I feel so lucky to have found Paw Commons! The owners are very blessed to have such a great team running their business.

This place is dodgy, called for pricing completely incondistent with the website, I won't be bringing my dog here because I can't trust a company that advertised one price and has different higher ones when I call.

This is the BEST place ever ! I would not take my pupper to any other place for Doggies Day Care, Boarding or Grooming. It is VERY clean. The staff are super wonderful, professional and have been with Paw Commons for years. I have been to other places - short staffed, employees do not stick around, dirty and I felt my dog was at risk. I would not go anywhere other than Paw Commons !!

I've brought my dog here once a weekly for day play for over 3 years. This location is so big there is plenty of room for the dogs. The staff is amazing...they remember the dogs and their owners. I've always felt my dog is very safe and loved here.

Very new customer so this is subject to change. I like the idea that they request a 4 hour assessment before accepting the dog - it seems thorough. I like the zoom camera so I can check in but my dog hasn't been playing with other dogs there. He's been standing alone which may just be his own feeling like an outsider. But my goal is for him to play and have fun. I'm sticking with it because it's new, clean, safe, great staff, etc. I just wish he'd mingle more.

My dog loves coming here to see the employees and get loves from them! Plus they always know who she is as she walks through the door! They are all friendly and knowledgeable people and I feel comfortable leaving my baby with them. She's even spending the night this weekend!

I drop my dog off here at least once a week while I have to work. They take great care of him and it’s an excellent way for him to socialize with other dogs. He sleeps like a baby after a full day doggie daycare

I love boarding my dog here overnight and even sending him to daycare for the day. He always has so much fun. The staff are awesome and knowledgeable about all things dogs. You can also watch your dog play on a web cam while they’re playing to see how much fun they’re having

Five stars!!! The staff is always friendly and kind, I know when I leave my dog he will be loved and well-cared for. The groomer is amazing and the price is fair for the services received. Thank you to all the staff at Paw Commons Bay Park, you guys are the BEST! (Rudy's Mom)

My dog LOVES coming here! The team at the Hillcrest location is incredibly kind and caring. My dog is a huge rowdy puppy and they take such great care of him! We do daycare, boarding, and grooming!

The prices listed online are extremely misleading. A boarding fee per night is to be expected but the additional daily fee to have someone watch your dog, plus mandatory insurance, plus an additional fee if you can’t pick up by 1pm, and another fee on top of that if you can’t pick up by 7 has you spending more than twice what you should. God forbid you forget to bring treats from home. Money aside, when I picked up my dog, they told me she’d had a bit of diarrhea, which they said was probably just stress. She came back extremely sick. She’d lost a lot of weight, was sneezing, choking, vomiting, and had uncontrollable diarrhea. On top of that, she howls when left alone, which is the primary reason I didn’t leave her alone at home while I was gone. When I picked her up from this place, she had completely lost her voice. It’s been two weeks and her voice is still very hoarse. Therefore I have every reason to believe she was left alone for the entirety of her stay, excluding her occasional potty breaks and very expensive scratches on the head. Pros: Polite staff. They gave me an update on her eating habits. They opened their doors late so I could still pick her up after my flight had been delayed. (But then they charged me $25 for it)

My dog loves Paw Commons daycare. He can play with other small dogs and also watch the bigger dogs play. Wonderful staff and trainer.
