Who is Pups@Play

Pups@Play offers a clean, safe, and sociable environment for your pooch to enjoy. Our climate-controlled facility offers multiple playrooms that give our pups room to socialize, exercise, and play. Our guests are NEVER confined to a kennel or cage. Our experienced and attentive staff provides personalized playtime and regular outdoor walks to each pooch at no additional cost. Our goal is to deliver a happier, healthier dog after each service.

Pups@Play is a one-stop shop for all of your doggy needs. Whether your pup requires a haircut, a dog sitter or training in obedience, we’ve got you covered from top to bottom. Here at Pups@Play we PUP UP the Volume with full service Dog Grooming. We offer a variety of Grooming Pooch Packages that are TAILored to your pup’s specific needs, as well as a variety of A La CarteSPAW services.

After your dog gets their SPAW grooming treatment, your pup can have a day of fun with us. We offer Dog Daycare that is personalized fun that fits your pup’s social personality. We do not believe in caging our guests, so instead we give them plenty of space to play together under the supervision of our experienced K9 counselors. Your pup can also strut their stuff with one of our trained Pups@Play staff members. 

Our Dog Walking services will give your dog the opportunity to be walked for 30 minutes, so that your pup can get exercise and fresh air.

In case your pup is having too much fun with us at Dog Daycare, your pup can stay the night with us. Our Dog Boarding service is a one of a kind experience. Instead of leaving your dog along and isolated in a cage or “suite”, at Pups@Play your pup will enjoy our “slumber party experience” where that will spend the entire night with all of their furry friends and a human companion.

What People Are Saying

When we first moved to Livingston, NJ we experienced some trouble finding a groomer that we felt we could trust and that we felt would take good care of our dog. We finally found Pups at Play and we’re introduced to Doreen (one of their groomers). She is absolutely fabulous! She’s so gentle and loving with our dog and we can tell our pup feels comfortable and safe with her. If you’re looking for a groomer that’s gentle, kind, and talented…Pups at Play is it!

After researching several doggy daycare facilities I decided on Pups@Play and my dog and I are glad that we did! The staff was friendly and my dog became so calm and trusting of the facility and the staff. By day #2, my dog jumped into the car at the mere mention of the word “daycare”! I am so grateful to have found a loving daycare!

Pups@ Play is a great place with a very caring staff. My daughter brought her dog to Pups@Play after having a bad experience with a groomer in the state in which she lives. She was reluctant but I suggested we give it a chance. Melody is great and took her time with Remy. Remy is deaf which even makes it more difficult at times. She enjoyed being groomed and was very cooperative thanks to the caring staff at Pups@Play. I would highly suggest Pups@Play for Day Care, Boarding, and grooming.
