All dogs must meet the following criteria

Our goal is to provide a safe, fun environment that allows dogs to socialize and exercise all throughout the day. All dogs are screened to be friendly, social, healthy, and have passed our temperament test.

For your dog to become a member at The Dog Spot, you must first fill out a New Membership Application and then set-up a time to bring in your best friend for an interview and temperament test. Documentation of vaccinations and spay or neuter certificates are required at this time. During your pup’s behavior assessment we will determine whether he/she is ready for group play.



To prevent the spread of disease while at The Dog Spot, all dogs must be current on all core vaccines or titers as dictated by the pet’s veterinarian: DHPP, Bordatella, Rabies, etc. Vaccines will be accepted up until the day of admittance; however, we recommend injectable vaccines be given at least 5 – 7 days before admittance and intranasal vaccines be given at least 72 hours before admittance to ensure the pet has maximum benefit from the vaccine.


Puppies CAN be accepted as long as they have received their full series of puppy vaccines starting between 6 – 8 weeks and given every 3 – 4 weeks until 20 weeks of age. This is to prevent The Dog Spot and animals there from being exposed to parvo, a very serious gastrointestinal virus that puppies can get before they have finished a full series of vaccines.
