Do you work all day and can't stop thinking about how lonely your dog must be in an empty home? Want to take a day-trip down to the beach, but don't want to bring your pup? Moving and you don't want to have to keep your canine companion preoccupied all day? If any of these or similar situations apply to you, then Day-Play may be a very valuable commodity for you and your canine companion.

In Day-Play, your dog is able to enjoy the weather and the company of other dogs in a safe, secure environment where they will be watched and fed according to your specifications. Your dog will be able to run around and play with our certified canine handlers and other dogs while you can take some time for yourself or to get that house cleaning done you've been meaning to do.

Day-Play is available Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm, not including holidays and instances where River Bend Pet Center is closed for the day. We offer Full Day (Over 5 hours) and 1/2 Day (Under 5 hours) options. 

All dogs that wish to participate in Day-Play must provide proof of:

  • Current veterinary grade flea treatment
  • Routine deworming and/or a negative fecal (including Giardia) within the past 6 months
  • Current Rabies, Distemper combo and Bordetella vaccines (Leptospirosis is recommended but not required)
  • In addition, they must pass a temperament test administered by Day-Play management staff (these are to be scheduled in advance and generally take about 15 minutes per pet)
