Want to enroll your dog in our facility? Here’s what happens next:
Temperament Testing is done by appointment only and this determines if your pup will fit into our current pack. So if you are thinking about enrolling your pup, call the shop or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to see if there are any open temperament test spots available. This test cannot be done if your dog is not up-to-date on all rounds of
3) Distemper Booster or Shot
4) A clean Fecal Scan
(ALSO ALL DOGS OVER THE AGE OF 6 MONTHS MUST BE FIXED BEFORE THE TEST DATE)
*We have specific times set aside for temperament tests due to not causing disruption in the pack. Having a new dog enter the daycare at these specific times makes it easier for both the crew and your pup without getting extremely stressed out.
If your dog passes a temperament test, here are the next MANDATORY steps:
For our “Medium/Large” side Doggo’s:
1.) DROP OFF BEFORE 7AM. The earlier the better. It can be quite overwhelming for a new dog to enter the entire room full of 30 dogs. So when they arrive earlier – they can be the sniffers and greeters instead of the other way around.
2.) THE FIRST 3 VISITS SHOULD BE 3-4 HOURS PER DAY. This is to ensure that your dog gets in the routine of “I get to have fun but my pawrents always come back to get me!”.This is very important if you want your dog to feel comfortable in this new environment.
For our “Puppy’s and Small Dog” Doggo’s:
1.) DROP OFF AT 9AM
2.) THE FIRST 3 VISITS SHOULD BE FOR 3-4 HOURS PER DAY. Again, this is to ensure that your dog gets acclimated at a nice and slow pace. We want them to come in without being too overwhelmed, play, and make the association that “I get to have fun but my parents always come back to get me!” .
We find that a “slow and steady” acclimation process works best for our new pups!
We ask that you bring your dog on a leash and wearing a cloth quick-release collar.
- Your application should be completed, signed and we should have your Vet records in hand before the temperament test appointment.
- Gather your Dog’s vaccination records or ask your Vet to please email to email@example.com if it makes things easier!
