Step 5: Schedule a temperament test.

Being a cage free environment we require a successfully passed temperament test before booking any daycare or boarding.

Our temperament test is a 30 minute process where we sit down with your dog and you to talk about their health and experiences with other animals.

After that we do a meet and greet with some of our current daycare or boarding dogs.

We will be watching and discussing the things we are seeing in your dog’s interactions.

Once all goes well we will help you schedule your dog’s complementary trial day! 😀

We are often fully booked ahead of time and cannot accommodate temperament tests along with trial days, daycare or boarding on the same day. Please plan a few days ahead to assure there is time to book a temperament test and complete a trial day before needing care for your dog.

Step 6 (Optional): Uploaded vaccination records and add a cute pet photo! 😀

On your owner dashboard you can click on File uploads

You then can browse your photos or documents on your phone, computer, and tablet to upload your dog’s current vaccination records.

If you don’t have them on your phone, computer, or tablet no worries!

You can ask your vet to fax (916.442.8505) or email (Info@gratefuldogdaycare.com) the vaccination record straight to us.

If you want to add a cute photo of your dog go back to your dashboard and click on Pet Info

Then Modify your pet.

From here you can upload a cute photo of your dog by clicking on Modify Picture!

Step 7: Complete Temperament Test and Trial Day

All dogs must complete a Temperament Test and then participate in a Trial Day of daycare. This is to ensure all dogs that come to daycare are comfortable and will play nicely with the others. Dogs must pass their trial day before they can come for boarding or regular daycare.

If you are only interested in grooming there is no need to do a temperament test.

If you are only interested in dog walking we do an in home consultation.

Feel free to call us at 916-446-2501 to schedule an appointment or we will give you a call within 24 hours of receiving your enrollment form submission.

(Please note that unless an enrollment form is filled out we will be unable to schedule the evaluation.)

We conveniently do temperament test 7 days a week!

We look forward to meeting you and your dog(s)! 😀
