Play Dog Play looks at community two ways: First, the community of Petaluma dog-lovers who entrust their best friends to John, Molly, and their crew. Second, it’s all about the community we share: the city of Petaluma and the surrounding area.


Play Dog Play has taken canine clients into schools for extended education and participated in community events in Petaluma. John and Molly have also made presentations on dog care and dog safety to schools in town. They won the Golden Chicken for their dog float in the Butter and Eggs Day Parade. They’ve taken part in the annual Dillon Beach cleanup…and why not? Dillon Beach is one of the few places in the county dogs can enjoy running off-leash.

PDP has a relationship with Central Animal Hospital to take dogs on walks and canine adventures to Dog Ranch – which was built, in part, from recycled materials salvaged from Petaluma construction and demolition sites.

It could be an excursion to Dillon Beach to doggy paddle in the surf, a romp at Oak Hill Park or an outing to a new destination ...
