What is a temperament test?

A temperament test is required for dogs older than 6 months. This is before starting daycare and boarding.  

We start by gently introducing the dog to their new environment, alongside their human companion, to help them acclimate to different stimuli. Each dog receives individual attention to ensure a comfortable transition before joining the group. This detailed process is conducted for the four hour period, and we’ll need to meet with each dog’s human for about 15 minutes at the beginning to review the dog’s profile.

 

Times available for temperament test: 
Monday-Friday at 9am

 

We first meet with each client to review your dog’s profile in greater detail, which takes approximately 15 minutes, before starting your pup’s temperament test. We gently introduce your dog to this new environment by allowing them to explore on their own for a bit in the testing area, followed by meeting a few new friends one on one before joining the larger group. Each dog receives individual attention to ensure a comfortable transition and this detailed process is conducted during the four hour period. At pick up, we will meet with you again to discuss what happened during the test and any next steps we recommend.

 

For puppies less than 6 months old, please contact us to go over our process to introduce young pups to daycare!
