Pretty awful customer service. Called twice and left message, no response.

They’re an indoor only facility with no outdoor space. The dogs apparently get only one walk in an 8 hour daycare day to relieve themself. The last time I used Playful Paws, I asked for them to drop off my dog at my house after daycare and had a set of instructions for them on their website (feed my dog dinner, leave her in my bedroom after drop off) and you know what happened? They left her in my entryway/living room. They didn’t feed her. They literally just took her leash off and left her there. They didn’t even bother to read any of the instructions I left for them on the website. My poor baby was left anxious and hungry. I am never using Playful Paws again.

They are professional, easy to work with, and the groomer always does a great job. We will continue to bring our dog here!

Nikki is truly amazing at her job. She has been extremely patient with our puppy since her first grooming appt. Every time we pick up, we love her new cut. She also provided tips and feedback to help prepare our pup for her appts. It is always nice and tidy when we go. Extremely pet friendly.

Such a great experience with my 7 month old labradoodle puppy after bringing him to a different groomer who said they could only shave him. Nikki was warm in demeanor and well educated. She did an amazing job on his first full grooming!

I have a hard time trusting people with my dog but they had great reviews and totally lived up to it. My dog is afraid of baths so they took time to sit with her and make her feel comfortable before going in. I will definitely be making this my dogs grooming spot.

We recently rescued a dog and it was the first time getting her groomed! Playful Paws made her feel comfortable and they did a great job grooming her! We will be coming back!

We have found Playful Paws to be very reliable, but more importantly, our dog Hudson loves going there. He's always excited to see everyone and is very happy when we pick him up.

We took our older dog for a grooming here, switching from another location and we were really impressed. Easy to get an appointment, very responsive via email and he looked great (and was happy even though he hates grooming). The staff were also very helpful and friendly and the groomer made it clear she put a lot of care into his grooming. Thanks!

Don't use their online system to book - they never replied until 2 days before the grooming appointment I requested. I had to nudge them via email to get a reply and still didn't until several days later. Now I have to scramble to get an appointment for my dog elsewhere. Was happy with our first groom with them but they've lost my business.

I am a loyal customer and both of my dogs have been well served here, but after the last service, my dogs had an ear infection, severe itching and inflammation. It was a terrible experience and left me confused. I didn't know if I should let my dog continue here, when I sent the email, no one from the management team contacted me and say apologised for me and my dog

they were negligent and as a result of their negligence a dog died while in their care !

I'm sure most Doodle parents have their stories about bad haircuts but not this one! In anticipation of a move to Hoboken, I've been taking my pup (Agnes) to Playful Paws since she was 5 months old so she could get comfortable with her groomer. I can't get over how cute she looks every time I've picked her up and the cut looks even better about a week in. Thanks for taking care of Agnes, she can't wait to see you again soon!

Brought my Labradoodle puppy to Playful Paws for her first groom and the team was wonderful! They treated my pup with lots of care and she looked/smelled beautiful with an adorable bandana on her neck when I picked her up. They even gave a sweet certificate to me noting her first groom :) . Would definitely recommend!

Super friendly and patient with my questions, and cut my anxious puppy’s nails in five minutes. Will be coming here again for sure!

They took excellent care of my very high energy puppy. I was worried initially about how her haircut would turn out but it turned out great, and at a fair price. It's obvious that they know how to handle any dog of any size and will definitely be bringing my pup back for grooming in the future

this was mangos first time being groomed here and I loved it! We were able to sit and talk briefly about mango and what I wanted done. Next time I might even get her tail dyed here!

Playful paws was so great with our pup for her first groom! Adjusting my review after second groom. The groom was wonderful I’ll give them that - our pup looked great. However, they tried to up-charge $20. Even after our first puppy groom appointment I was told a full groom for our girl is $65 with no add ons. When checking out, the groomer told the receptionist $80 (as if she made up the number in her head). When I questioned it, they honored the $65 so be careful on being overcharged. I also left feeling worried for my pup in their hands. The woman who took her back was not loving whatsoever and it put a bad taste in my mouth. I was freaking out for the 3 hours she was there. A week after our groom our pup contracted kennel cough. Not saying it was definitely from here, but it is the only place she was around other dogs. We will not be back.

Playful paws is the best! I am always more than happy with how my pup looks after a groom. It is a clean establishment, employees are friendly, and I always know I’m going to be happy with their service :) You can tell they care about your dog, too!

I thought the cut they did was pretty good for my pup and I loved the online booking/ease of scheduling. I really struggled with dropping him off and having the Groomer not even try to warm up to him. She immediately pulled his leash and said “Oh stop it, you’re fine” with an annoyed attitude while he was visibly terrified. He’s only 8 months so a little coddling or treat would’ve gone a long way. Needless to say, I was upset over it the entire time they had him wondering if she was being nice to him. Also was told 3 hours (which is double the time his other 2 cuts have taken) and it ended up taking an extra 20 mins over that while we waited outside. The front desk girl was sweet and lovely but the two Groomers I saw actually interacting with dogs seemed totally irritated and didn’t treat the pups all that nicely. Not sure I’ll return after witnessing it.
