Register For An Assessment
Prior to confirmation that your dog has a place at Oxford Pet Whisperers, they will undergo an assessment with one of our team. This assessment is carried out to ensure the safety of your dog, other dogs and our staff. During this assessment we shall be checking whether your dog is well socialised and has good manners.
Unfortunately, not all dogs are suitable for day care and not all day cares will be suitable for every dog.
Check you answer yes to these questions to ensure your dog is suitable for daycare then register for their assessment
Friendly and Vaccinated
Is your dog friendly and sociable?
If your dog has ever shown signs of aggression to another dog or human we're unable to welcome them into our daycare group.
Are all their vaccinations up to date?
By law we have to register many details of your dog which we do through our app we also have to take copy of an up to date vaccinations certificate.
Do they have to be neutered?
This depends on their age.
If your dog is under 6 months you can register for daycare and when they start showings signs of testosterone driven behaviours we'll let you know and you dog may need to take a break from daycare. Sometimes this can be at 6 months, sometimes 10 months. Each dog develops at different speeds.
If you dog is older than 6 months unfortunately you'll need to wait until they are neutered for them to be assessed. 6-8 months is a prime age when dogs start showing testosterone driven behaviours in our centre. As such we don't assess them during this stage.
Don't ever plan to neuter your dog? That's fine, if your dog is young enough they can still use our services, such as puppy play school or daycare until they reach the age where their behaviour becomes disruptive, at least they will still benefit from the early socialisation our centre offers. After that we can part ways, and maybe just see them if they pop in for a groom.
