Frequently Asked Questions

Below, you’ll find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about our Playcare services.

If your dog has a regular lunchtime meal or requires medications at noon, we can feed them or administer medications in a designated area within Playcare. Please be aware that we do not provide breakfast or supper during Playcare.

Drop Off time:

6:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Pick-up Times:

2:00 PM – 8:00 PM

You are able to pick up and drop off through the store during regular store hours. However, for the fastest service, we recommend using the drive-thru.

Our all-day Playcare truly means all day. If you drop off at 6:00 AM and pick up at 8:00 PM, your pup will enjoy playtime with friends throughout the day. Dogs determine their playtime, nap times, and socialization patterns, while our team monitors, encourages safe behaviors, and discourages unhealthy habits.

*Please note that if your pup displays disruptive behavioral habits toward the end of the day that may impact Playcare, they may be placed in a condo. We will notify pet parents in advance about this.

All pets visiting Leashes & Leads must provide proof of the following vaccinations: DHLPP (Distemper Combo), Rabies, and Bordetella (recommended every 6 months). While not required, we highly recommend that your dog receive a yearly influenza shot. To ensure a smooth reservation process, please provide your pet’s vaccination records before making your first reservation.
You can send your vaccination records to us via the following methods:

At Leashes & Leads, we prioritize the happiness and health of your dogs during their visits. To ensure this, we have a policy of keeping our intact (un-neutered) male guests who are 9 months and older separate from our other guests. In playcare we do not allow intact males who are 9 months or older to come, but when boarding we do allow a limited amount.

For the safety of all our Playcare dogs, a temperament test is mandatory for ALL first-time dogs joining Playcare. Additionally, please ensure that you have a profile with updated immunizations.

A temperament test involves one of our staff members taking your K-9 to interact with an employee dog to assess their behavior around other dogs and in the absence of their owner. Please call (507) 282-2710 to confirm the availability of a staff dog for the test.

If your dog has already passed the test, simply call us at 507-282-2710 to make reservations!
