Pet Degree

Location: 
Address: 
2070 Clinton St., Buffalo, NY 14203

Pet Degree is so new, that not only the website but also the building are still under construction. They are in a "soft opening" phase and have not done any advertising, but they are currently holding classes and playgroups. Check out the schedule here, and click the "week" button to see what is happening for the entire week.


Cost per playgroup is $7.50.

Currently, playgroup times are:
Wednesdays 6:30pm - Small Dogs
Wednesdays 7:30pm - Medium & Large Dogs
Saturdays 12pm - Medium & Large Dogs
Saturdays 1pm - Small Dogs

Note: There will be no playgroups on Wednesday 3/16 or Saturday 3/26

If you plan to come to a playgroup, make sure to:

  • Create an account on the website
  • Print and fill out the Facility Policy, Vaccine Policy and Media Release forms
  • Register online for each single playgroup that you attend. If you purchase a package of playgroups, you only need to pre-register prior to that first playgroup of the package. This ensures you will get alerts via email should a change or cancellation occur in dates and times. (To assist you with the registration, call Dani at 716-508-7387, she will walk you through registration.)

The building was formerly owned by Ray's Catering, so don't be concerned when you see their name on the building. The entrance for playgroups is on the side, facing Cochrane Street, where there is street parking available.
