Why Choose Paw Pals?

Paw Pals Staff Picture 7.20.18.jpg

Paw Pals is a professional company, meaning we are licensed, insured, bonded, and have employees, not independent contractors, who genuinely love what they do!  Our staff is individually hand picked, goes through extensive interview & background check processes, and complete an in-depth training program throughout the span of several weeks before they work with any pets. Our training program covers everything from how to hold a leash properly to understanding animal behavior. In addition, many of our employees are certified in Pet CPR and First Aid

Our dog walking & pet sitting team travels to all of Rockland County and select portions of Bergen & Orange Counties. Each family is assigned two sitters, which enables us to ensure you always have coverage for your furkids. When you join our family, we will create an account for you in our online portal which is accompanied by an app for your phone.  Our software is rated the best in our industry and allows clients to schedule and cancel visits, pay their bills, and communicate directly with their sitter. After each visit, clients receive a picture and report about their pawtastic visit with your furbaby. Additionally, we monitor your sitters through GPS tracking for added security, and to make sure a visit is never missed.


Paw Pals Daycare, Boarding, & Grooming facilities offers the same personalized, quality care that our furry clientele enjoy with our in home services. We are NOT your ordinary dog daycare. We provide fun activities throughout the day (did we mention bacon bubbles?), safe rubber flooring, healthy treats, and a loving and trained staff. Our daycare is located in the Garner Arts Center, an old Dye Factory where our founder and president’s grandfather used to work. As pet parents, we wanted to make sure that we had all the amenities in our facility that we would want to see in other daycares. Some awesome features you can expect are:

  • Pet Parents will have access to our indoor and outdoor cameras so they can see how much fun their furkids are having!

  • We offer transportation in our doggie school bus; The Tail Waggin!

  • Photo and report card provided through our app.

  • Indoor play area with premium eco-friendly recycled rubber flooring that is good on dogs joints, paws, and delivers excellent traction for play.

  • An outdoor play area landscaped with Pup-Grass, a pet friendly artificial grass which drains instantly into the ground inhibiting bacteria growth.

  • We clean with eco-friendly cleaning solutions that are specifically designed for pet care facilities and are effective against Canine Parvovirus, Canine Adenovirus, Canine Coronavirus, Canine Parainfluenza, Infectious Canine Hepatitis, Feline Rhinotracheitis, and Feline Infectious Peritonitis.

  • Daily Schedule of activities to make sure your pup is learning and being properly socialized.

  • Custom HVAC system that exchanges air from the outdoors to the indoors every 10-15 minutes to reduce the possibility of any air transmitted animal diseases.

You may be asking yourself, why should I send my dog to a daycare that only takes 25 dogs rather than a larger daycare with 100 dogs that my pup can play with.  Here are a few great reasons why:

-Individualized attention -More One-on-One Time -Ideal Staff to Canine Ratio

-Playtime and activities -Easy Socialization -Decreased Violent Incidents!

Contact us today to discuss our different pet care options and to join the Paw Pals Pack.  All introductory meetings with our dog walking and daycare staff are complimentary ensuring that we can provide the best care possible for your pets.  We look forward to meeting you and having you join the Paw Pals Pack!

A Note From Our Founder

In the fall of 2014 I left my comfortable position as a restaurant manager with a dream to create an amazing company founded by my pure love for all pets & driven by integrity. I dreamed of a company that offered impeccable services, employed great people, and gave back to the community. I am humbled to say that myself, along with my team, are living the dream! What started out as a modest dog walking business has now grown into a sophisticated operation that serves over 750 families. In July of 2018 we took a giant leap and we opened our dog daycare, boarding, and grooming facility in Garnerville. Additionally we proudly bake Puppy Grandma’s Kitchen Treats, 100% All Natural Dog Treats and have fun creating Paw Pals Pack Gear: personalized clothing & accessories for humans & pets. Please have a look around, meet our team, learn about our services, and discover what sets us apart from the rest. We can’t wait to meet you!
