For the safety of all, each pup must pass a personality test, and must have all vaccinations up-to-date prior to their first day at The Dog Play Spot. To setup your personality test, get registered, and ensure you have the correct vaccinations, please call us at 910-399-1463.


We require current Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella vaccinations for all dogs.
