A behavioral evaluation will be conducted by one of our trained professionals in the wags dog park. Our team will talk with the pet parent about the dogs temperment, health, and history. Once complete the dogs join our members in a seperate room to observe how they react when away from their parent. During this time our staff will conduct a head to tail analysis to identify hot spots to touch taht the dog may have. If a dog is sensitve to touch in an area its not necessarily a problem, but it is important for our staff to be aware of these sensitivities.
After this process we will slowly add new dogs to the area to assess the comfort level of the dog. Our team will observe the dogs body language, and how the dog interacts with the other canines to determine suitability for an open play enviroment.
If for some reason the dog is not yet ready for open play, our staff will recommend steps the parent can take to help adress the observations. Any dog is always welcome to come back for another evaluation after any issues have been adressed.
