Perfect new spot in town for all your pup needs. Wonderful and attentive staff, some of the best trainers in town, easy to use dog wash stations, and some great food, treats, and toy options. My pups already obsessed.

We had a sneak peek of this cool store recently, and came back today for their grand opening. OH MY! We were not disappointed!! What an awesome place, I thought it was just supposed to be a fancy pet store but it’s described as a canine community center and now I see why! Such a welcoming space with unique areas for exploring, training, relaxing, and they have these high-tech self wash stations complete with high quality dog shampoo, and indoor potty spots, thank goodness. The food/ treats/ leashes/ collars/ snuffle mats and apothecary?!?!? items blew my mind. They’re even in my price range which was exciting. This store surpasses what I had hoped to find. I also love that they have fascinating products I’ve never seen (or thought to search for) before. The owner Terra was beyond knowledgeable and helpful. Her super-nice staff were handing out treats, taking time to greet everyone individually, and it felt like one of those rare places where they treat you like family. Definitely my new favorite place.

Paws N' Play is an awesome location to bring your pup for some mental stimulation and play (in the designated play area) and a shower (in the wash station area). It is also a good spot to swing by for healthy treats and varying dog toys. Terra, the owner, has a wealth of knowledge on dog behavior and overall well-being, being a trainer and canine expert herself. This is basically a one-stop shop for all things dog-related. Definitely recommend!

Paws and play is such a great store. They have so many good products and their customer service is great. Their shower stations are modern and have all the amenities required to give my dog a bath. I definitely recommend this place.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Paws N’ Play. Terra, who is also the owner, provided so many insights and game-changing suggestions while training with my Australian Shepherd puppy and my family. Terra not only provided help with the basics, she also helped us to understand our puppy. That has truly made all the difference as we have worked with her. We also received some excellent nutrition suggestions that made a huge difference for all of our pets. I highly recommend Paws N’ Play for their amazing training, wonderful customer service, and high quality food and supply availability!
