Information about Temperament Evaluations

Why is a Temperament Evaluation required?

Safety of our furry guests, their humans, and our amazing staff is our top priority! While animals may sometimes engage in unexpected and unpredictable behavior, a Temperament Evaluation gives us the opportunity to get to know your furry friend and better understand what they like and don't like. 

How long will it take and how much does it cost?

Temperament evaluations last approximately 1 - 2 hours and are conducted at NO COST to the owner. In order for us to best get to know your pet, we ask that owners leave their furry friend with us after a brief introduction.  

Are there breed restrictions?

Barklandia does not put restrictions on dog breeds.  However, dogs with aggressive tendencies or overly fearful dogs may not be a good fit for Playcare.  Temperament Evaluations help us get to know your furry friend and help ensure the safety of all guests and staff members. 

If my dog fails the Temperament Evaluation, does that mean he or she can't come to Barklandia?

The health and safety of our guests is our top priority.  If a dog fails our temperament evaluation, we will be happy to refer you to an experienced trainer that may be able to help overcome behaviors that are hindering your dog’s participation in group play. There may be some instances when a dog does not pass the Temperament Evaluation due to reasons that are non-aggressive in nature. Depending on capacity, we may be able to provide individual playtime and exercise time for these circumstances. A few examples may include:

  • Guests who may not be interested in participating in group play, but they may enjoy watching the group from a safe distance. 
  • Guests who may be content sleeping by a window in the sun or hanging out with a caregiver in another part of the building.
