Doggie Day Care

Doggie Daycare at Riverside!

Hate leaving your dog at home all day while you’re gone to work?  Doggie daycare is the perfect solution for the bored, anxious, or high energy stay at home dog! Put your mind at ease with your dog at daycare, where they can get plenty of attention, exercise, and socialization with our staff and other dogs. Doggie daycare is great for owners who work long hours, overweight pets, or families having housecleaning or maintenance done on their homes.

Our doggie daycare program offers three large outside separate fenced areas for all day supervised group play with other dogs that best match your pet’s size and temperament.  Dogs are given several hours of group play in the morning and afternoon, with a rest period around lunch.

Schedule is subject to change with weather conditions.


Daycare Requirements: 

Pets participating in daycare must be at least 4 months of age and have been vaccinated for Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, Bordetella, and Canine Influenza. Pets over the age of 6 months must be spayed or neutered. All breeds are welcome, but must not be aggressive. 

We offer single whole day and half day pricing, as well as discounted rates by purchasing 10 and 20 day packages.  Pets may be dropped off Monday through Friday as early as 7:30 AM and must be picked up by 6:00 PM.  Please contact Riverside Veterinary hospital at 252-442-3636 for pricing.
