When other boarders close their doors... – Paws in Chelsea stays open!
not upfront with fees - might not know your dog – When I called for an update they didn't know my dog and I had to call back and insist they give me a realistic evaluation of how she was doing - they don't list their full fees on their website and do not volunteer information re. this to first time boarders like me. When you question them the woman I spoke with got shrill and defensive and yelled and interrupted. My dog came back healthy, i must say, but I would NOT go back and, honestly, I don't think I've ever encountered a more hostile and rude attitude as a customer before at any biz. Kinda shocking.
My dog Shayna adores Paws Inn – and so, of course, do I. Shayna speeds up when we get halfway down the 24th Street block that Paws Inn is on,when she realizes where we are going, and she is truly excited when we approach the door and when she is greeted (by name and with happy head rubs) by the staff.
The dogs are divided by size and activity level into rooms, as in human nursery school; e.g. the Yellow Room. The staff keep a watch that the groups are in harmony and they are careful about special needs (e.g., I bring Shayna's food and don't want her to have access to others' food, so she is fed separatey in the kitchen. The staff pointed out to me that she heads right to the kitchen, and I see her trot happily there. The staff know and like Shayna and, I can tell, the other dogs as well.
It's great to have this place and people in our lives.
Paws in Chelsea=Daycare that can be trusted! – My dogs are happy campers on the days they go to Paws.
It was recommended by several friends and for me, it was a great relief to find a daycare where I could trust that my kids were getting good care when I couldn't be with them.
No matter what time I leave them or pick them up they are welcomed by a staff member who knows them and has a personal relationship with them. The staff has really had a positive effect on socializing my dogs, helping them to relate to other dogs and play and exercise in a really good way.
I love knowing that I can leave my dogs in a safe, caring
environment where they will have what they need.
Paws in Chelsea=Great Daycare! – Hands down, Paws was the the best choice for us. Riley can't wait to get there in the mornings and hates to leave when I pick him up. The staff is fabulous, every member seems to have his or her own relationship with Riley, and Riley loves all the attention. I have complete confidence leaving my dog in the care of the staff and feel good knowing that Riley is having a blast while I am at work.
I tried several daycare places before choosing one for my dog. While Paws is definitely no frills in terms of aesthetics, I find Paws to be as clean, or cleaner, than the other options in the area. Riley comes home no more in need of a bath than he would be if he were playing with several other dogs in the park.
BEST DOGGIE DAYCARE – A real blessing that I can have complete confidence when I leave Arthur, my adorable Chiweenie at Paws In Chelsea. The place is spotless; the staff is loving and efficient and Arthur has a wonderful experience. He comes home happy, having played with other dogs his size. No grouchy dogs allowed and I don't have to worry about him being hurt. He gets a lot of TLC in a free environment with no cages. I wouldn't think of leaving him anywhere else.
Absolutely the Best!!! – I take my puggle Kingsley to Paws in Chelsea nearly every day. My girlfriend and I work pretty hectic work schedules so we knew that finding a doggy daycare was of the utmost importance for all of us. After doing our research online and visiting a number of other daycares in our neighborhood, we weren’t completely sold on any of those places. Some were too boutique-y and waaay overpriced; some were just too dingy and smelled awful; some had very inattentive staff; and most alarmingly, my dog was just petrified being in most (if not all) of those places. Luckily we were able to find Paws, and when we came to visit for the very first time to check it out, Mike was more than happy to show us around and we both fell in love with the place immediately. Now, our Monday mornings are basically a sprint to see how fast he can get there, but unfortunately, that means I have to drag him home because he loves it there so much (true story, I had to carry him out of there after his first day there because he did not want to leave!!!).
When we have to travel, we don’t even think twice about boarding him there overnight. They don’t leave him in a cage which is a major plus because he hates being in a kennel. While we certainly miss him when we’re away, much of our fears are calmed by the fact that the staff is so attentive to his (and the other dogs’) needs.
I can’t say enough great things about this Sherri and her staff there. When I have to pick up Kingsley, I always get a rundown of his day from whoever’s at the front desk. They go above and beyond to make sure my guy is happy without any second thought, which in turns, makes me happy. It’s those little things that make the biggest difference and shows us that Kingsley loves the people there as much as they love him.
Doesn"t Your Dog Deserve The Best – Seven years ago I adopted a beautiful Tan and White Pitbull that I named "Babi". She was only six weeks old when I took her home from ACC. I didn't know then that I had just found my best friend. Babi's first six weeks with me were spent in a crate during the day while I worked. However as soon as she got her shoots, it was no more crate for her. But during those six weeks I had to do some homework to find Babi a place to stay while I was working, a place where I could feel comfortable and know that good people were looking after her. After vistiting several Doggy Day Cares, I found "Paws In Chelsea". I spoke to the owner Sherri who welcomed Babi with open arms. Babi walked in the place like she was home, and for the past seven years it has been her secound home. When I had cancer, Babi had to stay in Paws for 35 day's. I was constantly calling to see how she was doing and although the staff was trying to be kind by saying she missed me, I knew Babi was just fine. During the past seven years some of the staff have moved on and some stay, like Linn and Mike. They have pitbulls of their own and treat Babi as one of their own. Babi has also built a relationship with some of the newer staff, like Krizzia and Jane. I guess what i'm trying to say is "I love my dog and think she deserve's the best care, and in Paws we found it". Just ask yourself that question, "Doesn't My Dog Deserve The Best Too"?
Great care! – I called to check in on my dogs the next day (after boarding them there for the first time) and they could accurately tell me all about my dogs' personalities. They said "they love this and they don't like that", etc. It was great that they spent so much time getting to know my dogs!!
Also, one of my dogs is aggressive with strange dogs, so this is one of the only places in the city where I can board her (she's great with people, just not a fan of all other dogs). I'm glad it is such a wonderful place! I can board my two pups together, in a private room, and not have to worry about their safety! Yes, it isn't the fanciest place, but they get real quality care and that's what matters most.
I love this place, great customer service – I used to go to another doggy day care in hell's kitchen that was just awful. So even though they're not in my neighborhood, I don't mind one bit because of the care I know my boxer is getting. The owner and employees at Paws in Chelsea are professional, considerate, and take very good care of my dog. Their drop off and pick up hours are also very accommodating. I highly recommend them.
