What is a Playgroup?

A playgroup is an opportunity for your dog to play and socialize in a safe environment. Playgroups are better than walks because they provide an opportunity for your dog to walk, run, and play with their friends. Your dog will go home tired and happy!

How long is a playgroup?

Though we are often out longer, we guarantee at least an hour of exercise with a minimum of 30 minutes at the park.

What is a double playgroup?

A double playgroup is twice the time of a normal playgroup. If you have an especially energetic dog, doubles will help ensure a tired dog when you get home from work!

What time will my dog go to playgroup?

Our pickups are between 11am-2pm. Our schedule changes every day so the exact time will vary.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

Yes, our scheduling window closes at 9am the day of playgroup. Cancellations after 9am will be charged as a playgroup.

Do you run playgroups in all weather?

Yes! We are walking and playing in all weather! On rain and snow days we dry your dogs off a much as possible before we return them into your home.

Will my dog be riding in a car?

No, we walk to and from the park. We do not use cars!

Will I receive an update after the playgroup?

Yes, after playgroup you will receive an email with a message about the day and pictures of your dog playing at the park.

Are you insured and bonded?

Yes, we are insured and bonded through Petsit LLC.

How long have you been in business?

We have been offering playgroups in Hoboken since 2010.

What are your business hours?

Monday-Sunday 9am-6pm.

What do you need from us to get started?

To get started please fill out the form on our Join the Pack page and we will contact you so we can come meet you and your dog! During our meet and greet visit we will collect 2 sets of working keys.

What type of leash/harness should I provide?

Please provide a 6ft non-retractable leash and a harness that fits your dog.
