Prepare For Your Visit

 We take health and safety very seriously and only want the best for your fuzzy family member. Please review our requirements below and call us today to schedule!

Dog's First Visit

We are so excited to have you and your pet come to Pinnacle Pets Play & Stay.
Before registering, please review the requirements below.

These requirements are for all pets that come into the building for any service to ensure the best and healthy experience possible. 

*Please note – Puppy Playcare requirements are slightly different due to age. These guests are kept separate from all other pets until they are old enough to have completed the vaccination series of a grown dog.

Overnight Visit

Orientation Day (Free)!


Call or stop in to schedule your FREE Orientation Day (required before any overnight boarding). 

Our Orientation Day is designed to get to know your pet and help you both get comfortable at Pinnacle Pets!

Orientation Day is a “Day Stay.” The pup is not required to spend the night but just stay with us for at least a few hours to get used to the sights, sounds, smells, people, and routine. This can help us flag any concerns or suggestions for a longer visit and help them settle in quickly next time! This is also a great way for you to get comfortable with our care and provide us any feedback or further information before an overnight stay.
