My fur baby loves it here! He knows where we are going as soon as I turn in my blinker and is so excited! Mike and his son Mikey are the best, they always are so caring and I know my guy is in good hands when they are around. I love that Playful Paws has a large outdoor area, great for my large, overly excited dog. As soon as I pick him up he falls asleep before I can even get home, that’s how I know he had a great day and got out lots of energy!

I take my dogs Matt and Bokeh there all the time and they love. I love the staff and the place is awesome. I highly recommend it. For those who said the place looked dirty, well no, you can't eat off the floor. That's only because it's a …

AVOID at all costs. Everyone here is unprofessional and rude! Felons run this place! Many other places nearby to bring your fur baby's!

I have been bringing my German Shepherd Blake to Playful Paws since they first opened. We both love it there. Blake has always been well treated, loved, and played with at daycare and is tired and happy when he gets home. I love the fact that I can drop him off any time and that they have half day rates as well as full day. He is always clean and so is the facility. I especially love the large outside yard with trees and pools that you don't get with most daycare facilities. Thank you Mel the owner, and Michael and Mikey for all your hard work and dedication. Sincerely Lisa Whalen

I called to ask a question on introducing my animals (dog and cat) to each other. The man on the phone was very rude and said there's nothing I can do about it and if they don't get along then tough luck. The most I can to is put them in …

Can't actually comment on their services, because I never went pay their website and trying to call for information. The young man that answered the phone was apparently watching some kind of sports cause that's all I heard, I asked him a …

This facility is largely outdoors; the actual building is a trailer that looks 20 years old. The parking lot is tiny, and someone almost hit me coming in as I was leaving. I have 4 chihuauas that I hate leaving, but this place has no …

I stopped in this place to check on boarding and it was dirty and gross. I would never leave my dogs there. Dogs aren't separated and the "trainer" was mean. I get the creeps every time I drive by this place.

Extremely disappointed in Playful Paws grooming! We had been getting our dogs groomed here with Sarah for almost a year. Sarah did a fantastic job and was reasonably priced. We brought our morkie Betty to get groomed last week by the new …

Love the addition of the new team of workers! Have been going here for almost a year. Every staff member, and now the new individuals, are friendly and most of all HONEST ( unlike 2 former disgruntled workers who I witnessed lie about business matters and may have tried to sabotage it)!!!! Sad that money brings out the worst in people. That's all over now though!!! My girl loves to run her heart out and whenever I pick her up, I get the full report on her day by someone with an authentic interest in my dog and her well being. Couldn't ask for better care. I personally think that the change of command was necessary for this wonderful facility. The alterations have ALL been positive and I recommend Playful Paws to anyone who wants people of good character watching over their furry babies!

Awesome, Caring, Loving, Compassionate, Trained, FUN! This is what I tell everyone about Playful Paws. I cannot say enough about this center and the incredible staff that love your dog when you are not there. I have an almost 1 year old Maltese, Mia. Being a new parent to a beautiful little dog I had lots and lots of questions and concerns. Playful Paws staff (especially Sarah) have been a huge help in answering all my crazy questions. I feel so comfortable sending Mia off to play with her friends and know that she is being well taken care of!!! Sarah has been Mia's groomer for several months now and she does an awesome job making her look exactly how I want her. She is gentle and sensitive to Mia's needs. From the bottom of my heart I thank all the staff at Playful Paws!!! My suggestion to dog owners is to check this center out, your dog will be thankful for the fun they will have!!
