What does a dog assessment involve?
Prior to confirmation that your dog has a place at Dogs Aloud, they will undergo an assessment with Allan Todd. This assessment is carried out to ensure the safety of your dog, other dogs and our staff. During this assessment we shall be checking whether your pooch is well socialised and has good manners. The assessment will also run through a full behavioural and health history.
Since our doggy day care is set out in a pack mentality, it’s important that all dogs are able to play well together. Unfortunately, not all dogs are suitable for day care and not all day cares will be suitable for every dog. Should your dog not initially be suitable for our doggy day care environment, training options will be discussed further with you. We don’t believe in giving up on any of our furry legged friends, which is why we offer a range of different services including our training.
