Every dog needs to attend a suitability assessment prior to their first full visit to CentreBarks and this is to ensure they will be happy and relaxed in a large group of dogs.  It's rare for dogs not to pass their assessment, but it is a necessary part of the process to help them acclimatise.  During the assessment, your pet will meet one dog at a time until all the dogs are back together in one group, and they are monitored by our experienced staff for any signs of stress or anxiety.  Puppies undergo their assessment in the dedicated puppy area.
