One Day a Week, Minimum Commitment
Paws’ N’ Play strives to provide the best environment for which your dog can safely play. A dog’s safe and playful environment is a result of getting to know each of the other dogs through repeated visits.
At Paws ‘N’ Play, we require that parents commit to bringing their dog to daycare at least one day a week on the same day for the first 8 weeks. As a result, this will reduce your dog’s stress of having to meet new and unfamiliar dogs at each visit. We do not offer drop-in services for dogs that are not current clients. As mentioned above, our focus is to provide your dog with a consistent and safe environment by having dogs play with their familiar friends. New dogs can take up to a full day to be fully integrated with the dog pack so long-term and consistent commitment is best.
Daycare Location/Drop off and Pick Up Times
Paws ‘N’ Play is located at 562 Reed Road, North Dartmouth, MA 02747 and consists of 1800 square feet of indoor play space and 1800 square feet of outdoor romping room. The indoor play area is furnished with Rubber Re-Grind matting, which provides odorless cushioning for your dog during play as well as central air for those hot summer days and heat for those cold winters. The 6-foot fenced-in outdoor play area is equipped with double washed pea gravel, which allows for easy cleanup and ensures an unsoiled play area for your dog.
Your dog can be dropped off at the daycare center between 7:00 AM – 9:30 AM and picked up between 3:30 PM – 6:00 PM.
There is a 7 minute grace period window for late pick-ups. Anything after that, the client will be charged an additional $9 and will be moved to boarding after 6:30 for a next morning pick up. Clients may call the business number to see if additional accommodations can be set up.
