Temperament test

CAMP CANINE offers a cageless social environment for all dogs during their stay with us. This keeps them mentally and physically stimulated while they’re away from their loved ones, providing a more enjoyable experience.

Although dogs are social by nature, not all dogs are well suited for large, social play groups. Our counselors will do everything in their power to get new dogs comfortable with the other campers, but ultimately not all dogs are well suited to this sort of environment.

CAMP CANINE has devised a proven method of evaluating all of its campers participating in cageless doggie daycare to ensure the highest quality experience to every pet in our care. Our evaluation includes getting to know your pet using your notes from your enrollment form, having a CAMP CANINE Counselor spend one on one time with your pet, and monitoring your pet’s behavior both before and after being introduced to his/her new friends. This procedure takes a minimum of approximately 3 hours but exact time can vary depending on your pet’s level of sociability. Pets with anxiety issues may need repeat visits to help them gain the confidence they need to feel comfortable around others and some pets may be denied access to the group play if they show signs of aggression, are too fearful, or lack the social skills needed to provide them and others with a safe play area.

Please understand that this evaluation is for the protection of all campers in our play areas. A pet that has passed our evaluation can still be removed from group play if the Camp Counselors believe the dog has become a danger to others or itself. Dogs that do not wish to play with other campers or dogs that do not meet our requirements will be kept separate from the others, but still offered a minimum of 3 walks/playtimes a day and plenty of TLC throughout their stay.
