In order for your dog to have the best experience possible at The Farm’s Dog’s Day Out daycare program, it is important to determine how the program can be tailored to your dog.
Step One: Learn about both the Singular Dog and the Woof Club programs
Just as children benefit from the company of other children, so do dogs benefit from being around other dogs. Dogs who have only been around humans may not be familiar with “canine etiquette,” because dogs learn vital lessons from each other. Thus, if they are intentionally or accidentally placed in a situation where they will encounter another dog, they may be unsure of how to react. Play with other dogs also promotes health through mental balance and physical fitness.
Therefore, even if your dog has never been exposed to other dogs, it is never too late to see if he or she would do well in groups!
Step Two: Fill out the Add a Pet / Pet Info form
This set of questions gives the Dog’s Day Out staff a wealth of information that will aid them in understanding your dog and how to best evaluate him or her. Click on the Reservations option on any of these pages and follow the steps indicated. The Add a Pet/Pet Info form takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. You will also need to fill out the New Client form if you have not previously done so. Once you have requested that we get started on the assessment process, we will contact you to set up the first meeting.
Step Three: Your Dog’s First Meeting with our Daycare Staff
- In order to properly assess your dog, we request that you schedule an initial meeting. This usually lasts 15-30 minutes and is held in the presence of the owner. You get chance to meet the people who will be working closely with your dog and to ask questions about the program. At this meeting you can discuss what you hope to get out of the program and what sort of weekly schedule you wish to sign up for.
-New Woof Club Members are required to bring their dog(s) weekly for 8 weeks and will purchase the “Start Up Eight Day Woof Club Package” on the day of the first visit.
- As dogs get older or circumstances change, their suitability for groups may change as well. Thus, a dog’s role in Dog’s Day Out may require re-assessment.
- Unneutered male or unaltered female dogs 6 months or older are NOT eligible for Woof Club. They are, however, welcome in our Singular Dog program.
