Doggy Playcare

No wonder dogs love Doggy Daycare at Leashes & Leads! Their routine includes plenty of ALL DAY PLAY with lots of socialization and a big dose of love and attention from our staff. They have so much fun here we had to call it Doggy PLAYcare. Drop your four-legged loved one off in the morning and have a worry-free day assured they are being cared for as if they are our own!

Reservations & Pre-screening

For the safety of all our Playcare dogs, a temperament test is mandatory for ALL first time dogs. Additionally, please make sure to bring in updated vaccination at the time of your temperament test. A temperament test is a brief test involving one of our staff taking your K-9 to interact with our staff dogs to gauge their anxiety level being around other dogs without their owner. Please call (507) 282-2710 to make an appointment.

If your dog is already tested, call us at 507-282-2710 or Click Here to make reservations! We ask that Playcare dogs have a confirmed reservation at least 24 hours in advance to guarantee availability in our program.

Vaccination Requirements

All pets visiting Leashes & Leads must have proof of the following vaccinations: DHLPP (Distemper Combo), Rabies, and Bordetella (recommended every 6 months). We also highly recommend your dog receiving a yearly influenza shot, although this is not required. Please provide vaccination records at check-in or have your veterinarian fax the records to Leashes & Leads at (507) 424-1695.

Your Pet’s Safety is Our Priority:

One way we accomplish is our PlayCare program does not accept intact (un-neutered) males over the age of 9 months old.
