When Can My Dog Start?

Play Dog Play requires interviews for all dogs prior to their attendance in daycare or boarding at our facilities. The interview consists of evaluating your pup’s behavior in various aspects of our facility environment. While your pup is individually evaluated by one of our trained dog handlers, you will be able to watch the process from our observation deck and will be walked through the process by our awesome front desk team.

Interviews are scheduled in advance. While we do have cancellations and keep an interview waiting list, we are unfortunately rarely able to accommodate last-minute boarding or daycare requests. We suggest that interested customers book an interview for the next available slot and ask to be put on the waiting list should they want an interview sooner.

Play Dog Play has one allotted interview slot every day of the week and can start anywhere between 3pm and 3:30pm. For multi-dog families, interviews must start at 3pm. Please note that all interviews take place at our Pine Street location.

Do you have a puppy under 16 weeks? Skip the interview process by attending Sunday Puppy Playgroup!

Once the interview appointment has been scheduled, you will be sent a customer portal registration for our online scheduling app Gingr. We ask that you take a few minutes and set up your account including your contact information, information on your pup(s) as well as sign our standard customer agreement prior to your appointment. Have questions on how to set up your portal? Check out our Instructions page!

We will discuss our vaccine requirements at your interview appointment. All pups in our care must present proof of vaccination for Rabies, Distemper, Bordatella (Kennel Cough) every 6 months, and Canine Influenza. Please bring a copy of your most recent history to your appointment or have your vet email or fax it to us beforehand!

Our goal is to make sure your pooch has the most positive experience while attending daycare. Based on our evaluation, certain recommendations or requirements may be brought up during the interview before your pup is able to attend daycare or boarding.
