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.

Your pup must be 7 months or older to attend our facilities. 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.

Play Dog Play has one allotted interview slot at 2pm Mondays through Fridays at our Pine Street location.

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.

We will discuss our vaccine requirements at your interview appointment. All pups in our care must present proof of vaccination for Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella (Kennel Cough). While we do not require the Canine Influenza vaccine, we strongly encourage our pups to have it. Please bring a copy of your most recent history to your appointment or have your vet email us beforehand!
