The Evaluation Interview

What is the Evaluation Interview?

The evaluation usually lasts 1-2 hours and allows us to meet you, answer any of your questions, meet your dog and introduce him/her to some potential playmates. During this evaluation, we let your dog get settled in and get comfortable, observe your dog’s response to a new environment and to other dogs, ensure that he/she can be handled safely. Ultimately, the evaluation will let us know if our playgroups would be a good fit for you dog!

When is the Evaluation Interview?

We do Evaluation interviews by appointment. We will do everything in our power to accommodate your schedule.

Can I stay with my dog during the evaluation?

We’d prefer that you left your dog with us so that we can accurately observe your dog’s responses to new things without you there. After all, you won’t be there when he’s playing all day!

What if my dog doesn’t pass the evaluation?

PLEASE don’t be upset if your dog is not approved for daycare. The vast majority of times this happens it’s not US not approving your dog, but rather your dog letting us know that this particular environment/group of dogs isn’t his/her thing! Day Camp is not ideal for every dog for a variety of reasons.
