Meet and Greet with Evaluation Explained

This evaluation is charged at a half day of DayCare (£10 correct as of Jan 2023) and the dogs will arrive with you, their owners at 1pm.
You will stay briefly to allow us to ensure that your dog/’s are happy to be left and are not showing immediate signs of aggression or severe anxiety. We will also go through some details about your dog with you.
The dogs will then stay until at least 4pm to allow us to asses them in all the aspects below.
We have outlined some important information below, if your dog does not meet these criteria, please do let us know prior to your appointment.

An in-date titre test is acceptable, but the owner needs to be aware that you cannot titre test against leptospirosis and that is a required core vaccination.
The Kennel Cough vaccination is not a mandatory vaccine, and it does not cover all canine coughs and dogs are still susceptible to infection. We also ask that any dog receiving their KC vaccine does not attend our facility for 14 days following.
Please email us a copy of their vaccination or titre test prior to their evaluation. We require proof a minimum of 48 before your appointment, failure to send proof will see your evaluation appointment cancelled. Email -firstname.lastname@example.org
