BEHAVIOR: All dogs must be non-aggressive and not food or toy protective. Dogs not well-suited to the social environment may receive personal at home service depending on home location.
FREE TRIAL DAY: Dogs must participate in a free trial day where we can spend some time to getting to know them. This consists of at least 4 hours of weekday daycare when we can make behavioral observations and determine if the dog will be happy with our group setting. Please schedule a trial day in advance as we have limited space per day.
