The evaluation process is done in order to ensure that your dog has a pleasant experience here at A Fox & Hounds, starting with their very first visit. The entire evaluation process entails 3 short visits depending on your dog’s age, personality, and exposure to previous socialization.
You will drop off your dog for 2-3 hours for their first visit. During this visit, your dog has the opportunity to get acquainted with the facility and the sounds and scents of the other guests. Your dog may be introduced to other dogs of various sizes, energy levels, and play styles to see where your dog is most comfortable. Once we determine your pet’s comfort level and play style, they may be allowed into the appropriate playgroup that day, or this may be reserved for their second visit.
All vaccinations (Rabies Distemper combination and Bordetella vaccines) must be up-to-date prior to the first visit. A negative intestinal parasite test is required every 6 months. Canine Influenza is recommended but not mandatory at this time. Please consult your veterinarian regarding these vaccines. Proof of vaccinations can be emailed (email@example.com) or faxed (781) 871-2368.
