Puppy Play Care

Let’s face it, life gets busy! So let us take away the worry of your puppy being home alone all day while you are working, running errands or focusing on other aspects of your life. Our Puppy PlayCare program is designed to give your puppy a good start toward growing into a happy, healthy and well adjusted dog.

At Hickory Pet Inn, your puppy will have the opportunity to socialize, play, nap and receive basic training. They will have a secure, fenced yard for outside play and a climate controlled area for indoor activities and nap time. The staff at Hickory is caring, compassionate and well trained. As an added benefit we have veterinary care on the premises – our general practice, specialty and emergency hospital is always staffed and open 24 hours a day.


Puppies must be between the ages of 6 weeks and 4 months. For puppies over 4 months they can attend our Doggie Day Care
