Dogs must be:
-6 months or older
-Current on vaccinations
-Social with other dogs
-No pit bulls/pit mixes
Although your dog will be separated by size, age and temperament, they will be socialized in groups.
Behaviors that are not suited for group play are:
Nipping, growling, snapping, mounting, pinning, biting, rough play that may escalate, nose punching, chest bumping, hunting, dominance, anti social behavior, and simply harassing other dogs will result in a fail. Depending on the behavior the dog may be isolated and the owner asked to collect.
Meet and Greet is required to evaluate your dog/dogs social behavior! This entails a full day of daycare that must be scheduled. We want to make sure The Dog Barn is a good fit for everyone.
The Dog Barn is always willing to evaluate your dog's behavior on an individual case basis, because first impressions are not necessarily how a dog will behave once accustomed to our facility. Sometimes your dog just "needs a minute" to get used to large groups and stimulation. That being said, you know your dog better than anyone and if you don't think that they will be a good fit for our interactive and social environment, then maybe The Dog Barn isn't for you. Your dog's safety and happiness are what's most important to us.
If you have questions or concerns about any requirements, feel free to call and we can discuss options with you.
