Playcare (doggie daycare) is a safe way for dogs of all ages and sizes to socialize, play and have fun in a supervised setting. Playcare is offered every Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30am-5:00pm. Drop-off or pick-up times outside of regular business hours must be arranged with the clinic beforehand. Half day (less than 4 hours) and full day (more than 4 hours) packages are available. Discounted rates are available for dogs boarding at the clinic. Check out our Facebook page for current playcare pictures!

Need a bath, nail trim or an exam? Just let us know when your dog is dropped off. Playcare dogs come excited and leave tired!

Temperament Test: A one time temperament test is required to be accepted into the playcare group. During the temperament test, we will observe your dog in a number of different situations for any signs of aggression or anxiety. We understand that every dog has a different personality and some dogs may not be comfortable in the playcare yard right away. Luckily, we have multiple yards and the ability to create small group settings to ease the adjustment period. Owners are not allowed to be present for temperament tests because it is important for our staff to understand how a dog behaves without their owner present.

Vaccines:

  • Rabies vaccine (if age appropriate)
  • Distemper/Parvo vaccine
    • Puppies minimally must have received their second set of distemper/parvo boosters
  • Bordetella (Kennel Cough) vaccine

Fecal Parasite Screen:

Proof of a negative fecal test must be submitted before new dogs can join the playcare group.

Spay/Neuter:

All dogs over 6 months old must be spayed or neutered.
