About Us

Paws at Play has been proudly serving Vancouver’s westside since 2010. It was born from our passion and commitment towards exceptional service for Vancouverites and their canine pals.

We understand how important it is to hire someone who is caring, patient, trustworthy, and professional to look after your most cherished companions. 

At Paws at Play, we truly pride ourselves in being the reliable, dedicated and caring dog walking service that you and your dog (especially your dog) deserve. We are grateful for your trust in us to be part of their day!

What our Friends Say...

“We have used Paws at Play for the last 6 years. We are very happy with their service. Our dog cant wait for them to show up. I work from home some days and can’t get her out until the afternoon. I love having Paws as a backup for when I travel as well as I know that she will get some love during the day. The team are super responsive to requests to add or change times via text or email”

Jonathan & Willow

“My dog loves his times with Paws at Play and always is so happy when he walks with them. I feel great confidence with the walkers who have always gone above and beyond, even taking my dog to a vet appointment for me. Lovely group!”

Nancy & Xander

“Our Westie, Skye, has been a part of the Paws at Play family since she was 7 months — she is now 5 years old). Skye waits with excitement every other morning for Paws at Play to arrive and comes back from her walks happy and satiated. She often does a lap around the living to let us know just how much fun shes had! Their service is impeccable. Each walker is caring, enthusiastic and absolutely prompt and reliable. Paws at Play provides daily walk reports complete with the cutest photographs”

Stephanie & Skye

“”Lucy!” comes the call from the door. She leaps up and races to the door, wagging her tail a mile a minute. This is how happy our dog is when she goes out with Paws at Play. And when she comes home, she is happy and tired: what magic! We appreciate the team for being wonderful, dependable, and for taking such amazing care of her. Thank you!”

Teresa & Lucy

“We have been with Paws at Play for 2+ years now and we couldn’t be any happier with their services, and wonderful kindness and relationship with our dog!! She is ecstatic to see them when they come to collect her for her outings, which are fun, stimulating. and give her great exercise! I know she’s in good hands when she’s with her fur friends at Paws at Play. I always look forward to receiving their daily report and photos!”
