Puppy Play and Stay is excited to announce our re-opening on Monday May 4th, 2020!!

With times like these, we have had to make a few changes to our procedures in order minimize any human to human contact.

These changes are focused solely on the safety of you, your pup(s) and our staff. Our commitment to health and safety is our number one priority.
Please click here for a video of our new procedures and some FAQ’s

We are so excited to reopen and cannot wait to see you and your pups again!



  • Very impressive with the customer care for my self and my dog. The employees seem very attentive and compassionate from the moment I walked in to the moment I left. I have a great respect for their philosophy on how they want to make sure they are a good fit for everyone involved, my dog and the other dogs they already care for before they except to take in a new dog. This says a lot about the owners and their passion for their facility and our animals!!! I could go on and on- but you will have to go see it yourself to totally understand how this isn’t just any boarding or daycare for our four legged ❤️’s. Welcome to Lakeville Puppy Play and Stay we are so happy to have.

    Bringing Kenobi here has been amazing; staff does a really good job on how the doggos socialize, and give them a lots of play time. Staff takes a personal interest in all their clients. The report cards are cute, but not sure if they are supposed to be available after every visit? Webcam access is awesome. Nice to be able to watch them play while at work. Super convenient location off 35, just south of the 35e/w split.

  • Hattie enjoyed her first ever obedience training class with Meg. We both learned a lot and are looking forward to our next lesson.... Meg was positive and patient and had a great rapport with Hattie...... it was a great experience all around!

    Took our puppy to get a grooming here and they’re amazing😊Every staff member was so welcoming and kind. Her haircut was super cute and exactly what we asked for, the groomer was wonderful to work with and so great with our puppy. We are coming back in a few days to drop her off for a puppy play session since we loved it there so much! Our puppy didn’t want to leave. Their customer service was excellent definitely recommend!!

  • Excellent customer service when calling in with questions and concerns. Easy to navigate online reservation system. Proactive when there is an issue. Nice that you can check in on your pups with the webcams. My two Standard Poodles love it here.

Now Open in Lakeville

Puppy Play and Stay is Lakeville’s only doggie daycare facility.  Premium dog boarding, dog daycare and dog grooming services in Lakeville, MN. Our founders, Bill Boldenow and Joe Pannkuk, noticed a need for a state-of-the-art doggy daycare center close to home.  They’re both Lakeville residents and small-business owners so they decided to build a place where they’d like to take their own canine family members. With big ideas and a little bit of elbow grease, they’re making their dream a reality. To learn about Joe and Bill and their families, follow our official Puppy Play and Stay Facebook page or check out the About Us page.
