When your pet “Plays & Stays” at Best Friends for Daycare, he/she is boarded in a private accommodation. We also give your pet a playtime session and treat. Play & Stay is offered by all Best Friends Pet Resorts.
Doggy Day Camp is a popular, daytime group socialization session for local dogs offered during weekdays at all of our pet care centers. Dogs spend the day in exercise and play with other dogs under the supervision of a specially trained counselor. To be eligible, dogs must be non-aggressive, at least 6 months old, and have been spayed or neutered. Dogs must be evaluated by a counselor to determine eligibility.
Doggy Day Camp is a popular, daytime group socialization class for dogs that meet certain criteria. The program is available at all of our pet care centers. Selection criteria include:
– Being at least 6 months (Puppy Play Group available for younger pups)
– Being spayed or neutered
– Having the ability to interact with other dogs in a social setting without overt aggressiveness
– Absence of health concerns, which might limit physical activity or require one on one focused attention by an animal care technician
– Parent’s ability to enroll the pet in a regular schedule of sessions (not necessarily each day) enough to allow the pet to gain status within the pack, and to become comfortable in the surroundings.

Our screening process is done in the form of an interview with you and your dog. The interview consists of us meeting you and your pup, answering some basic questions on your pup, and engaging him/her during some one-on-one time with one of our trained counselors. If all boxes are checked, the next step is to set your pup up with an introduction day to see how the pack responds to your pup and how he/she interacts with them. Please contact a center near you for more information and to set up an interview.
