What to Expect When You Visit Paw Commons Encinitas

From your very first visit to our bright, modern facility, we hope you and your pets will immediately feel cared for and secure. Our experienced staff members are constantly looking for ways to serve our guests (and each other), cleaning everything (then cleaning it again) and training in best practices to bring you uncommon excellence in the pet care industry. 

Upon arrival, you can park right out front and come to the front desk for check-in. While you’re here, check out our handy retail shop. It’s like a convenience store for dogs!

Dog daycare is available on a walk-in basis or can be scheduled in advance, as long as your dog’s immunizations are up to date. For scheduled grooming services, we will give you a call when your dog is ready to be picked up. You are welcome to call, text or email for an update at any time during your pet’s visit.
