Welcome to Paws Play, your last stop on your search for quality pet care services. As pet owners, we want the very best for our beloved animals. Having stimulation and interaction during the day is a great way to ensure that our pets are happy and healthy. From daily walks, dog park excursions, one on one play time and care while you are away.

    Paws Play can do it all.


    • If you are going on vacation it should be just that. We will email you daily pictures and updates as well as take care of any household items to keep your home secure while you're away. If you work long hours, we take the stress away by providing mid-day walks. We don't want you to worry at all about your pets or home while they are in our care.


    • You can expect nothing but the most professional and loving care for your pets. Our team goes through extensive training and background checks. Most of our team members have been with us for well over a year and we do everything we can to provide consistency for your pets. This allows you and your pet to get to know and trust in them.


    • Everyone on our team is well versed in administering medication to your pets, including subcutaneous injections. Whatever their special diet or specific medical needs are, we can handle it. We have a secure database that stores all of the detailed information we cover during the complimentary consultation, so that no matter which quality team member is caring for your pet, they know exactly what is expected of them.


    • Studies have proven that pets do best when they stay home in their familiar surroundings while keeping to their regular routine. We do everything as you would to ensure that your pet is happy and healthy when you return home. There's no need to drop them off anywhere, let us do all the driving.


    • Once you are a returning client you may call, email or text in your requests any time. Booking service is as simple as a one sentence text message. We know that last minute needs arise and we have you covered.


    • Our goal is to ease your mind, not inundate you with texts and emails. All of our mid-day dog walking clients are given a notebook when service begins. At the end of every walk your dog walker will give you a hand written update on how much fun your pup had. Once a week they will also text you a picture to keep you updated, while taking into account your busy schedule.


    • Our services are competitively priced and we explain all of our policies up front, so there are no hidden costs. There will always be cheaper alternatives, but you get what you pay for. Other companies may not be around for longer than 6 months, but this is our passion and we are in it for the long haul. We stand behind our service and guarantee all of our clients will have a positive experience.


    • We are a husband and wife team that provide superior customer service whenever you need us. We are available 24/7 to help with all of your needs. We strive to ensure that you are 100% satisfied with our service and will do whatever it takes to make you happy. You can learn more about us and our team on our Team page.


    • This ensures that your pets and home are protected while they are in our care. Safety and security are our number one priority and we pride ourselves on our flawless record.

    What really sets Paws Play apart is our dedication to our clients and the love and care given to their pets. Your pets become a part of our family and we treat them as if they were our own.


  • Erik and Jessica Canzona


    We are the proud owners of Layla & Frankie. Two pups who's energy levels we're constantly jealous of. As owners of such high energy dogs, we know that exercise is the key to their happiness and in turn our own. It has always been difficult for us to find a dependable company to look after them when we were away or when we didn't have time to give the attention they deserved. In May, 2010 we started Paws Play. We understand the importance of a service that would care for a pet's individual needs and give peace of mind to their owners.

Paws Play is above and beyond reliable and trustworthy! From day one, They have been utterly professional, pleasantly communicative, and truly caring towards Benny. I have a crazy work schedule, but they always finds a way to accommodate it, even on weekends. I am so grateful!

Trina, Benny

They are professional, VERY reliable, kind and caring. I've recommended them to several friends, who all feel the same. They are a Godsend and we'd never use or recommend anyone else!

Jesse and Jen, Java & Jax

Paws Play have made such a positive impact on both our pups' lives as well as our own. Besides taking such good care of our pups on a regular basis, we can always rely on them to come through for us in a pinch. They are the best investment we have ever made for Chloe and Stewie.

Jeff and Samantha, Stewie & Chloe

They were always easy to reach, quick to respond and the professionals we were looking for. The Paws Play team are wonderful about keeping us informed of all the goings on during Lupo's walks - through notes, texts and cute pictures! I love the peace of mind knowing we have them there to help us out when life gets a bit too busy for us to manage ourselves!

Tony and Catrine, Lupo

Paws Play have met our needs above and beyond my greatest expectations of a company. This business is truly one of animal love and professionalism, not just profit. I am 100% confident that Lilly has the BEST dog walkers available in California!!!

Heather, Lilly

I love the fact that they provides their clients with notebooks so that notes can be left for both dog owner and dog walker about anything out of the ordinary going on with the pet. I am very happy with the services provided and would highly recommend PawsPlay for your pet sitting needs.

Sylvia, Pliny

Whenever we're out of town, we know our furry children are in great hands. With every walk and every pet sit, Erik and Jessica continue to exceed our very high expectations, and gives us the gift of true peace of mind.

Marc and Juan, Dakota & Camila

When I first began using Paws Play, Penny and I were working with a trainer, and when Jessica heard about this she offered to learn the training techniques herself and use them during her walks with Penny. I thought this was extremely generous and really shows how much she cares about the animals in her care.

Amy, Penny

We recently had Paws Play visit Elwood multiple times per day while we were away. It was wonderful to be across the country and not worry for a second about him. We knew he was in good hands with someone who treats him like one of her own.

Brian and Nancy, Elwood

Our Weimereiner has a bit of separation anxiety along with a lot of extra energy and the walks and attention the walkers at Paws Play gives him when we are at work have drastically improved his issues. Both Froto and Duncan are happier and healthier pups thanks to Paws Play's outstanding service!

Dylan and Steph, Duncan & Frodo
