Group play is offered Monday through Saturday and offers your dog socialization and exercise in a fun and safe, supervised environment. It is one of the most popular and fun times at Bayside Bed & Biscuit. We’ve got big yards to run in, swimming pools, a Splash Pad, toys galore and lots of love for your babies. Large dogs play together in our huge play yards and outdoor pavilion. Smaller dogs play with their friend in separate yards/rooms. Both groups have indoor alternatives in case of bad weather. Group supervisors have specialized training for dogs in group play and every pet in group is supervised closely.
Due to the highly physical nature of Group Play, we do not recommend you feeding your dog within one hour of Group Play, due to the risk of “bloat”. We can provide meals/treats as needed during “rest time” from 12 pm – 1 pm.
The guidelines, rules, and assessment for Group Play are provided in the links below.
Each dog interested in becoming a member of our Group Play Program is required to pass a Social Assessment given by one of our Behavior Coaches. The assessment process is used to determine how social each dog is prior to being accepted into the program. Assessments are scheduled Monday-Thursday.
Dogs build relationships just as we do, so it’s very important that you stick to the same days each week and maintain a minimum once per week attendance. We require a re-assessment for any dog who hasn’t attended in over 3 months.
Aggressive behavior is NOT permitted in our Group Play program, regardless if it’s directed towards humans or dogs. Any signs of aggression will result in dismissal of our program until further action is taken.
A credit card or punch card is required to participate and any dog over 6 months of age must be spayed or neutered. Please download, print, and complete the Group Play Assessment form and contact us to schedule an appointment for assessment.
Initial Assessment: $50 (includes assessment and day of play) Re-assessment: $15 (in addition to play cost for 1/2 day or full day)
