What is a dog behavior assessment and why is it necessary?

A dog behavior assessment is a series of structured interactions with a prospective day care dog that are designed to determine whether the day care environment will be a safe and successful social setting for both the new dog and the established day care dogs. The Enrichment Specialists who provide care for the dogs will spend time observing the new dog’s level of comfort with people, while resting in the nap room, and with gradual introductions to other day care dogs who are specially matched for them. During each part of the Behavior Assessment, the Enrichment Specialist actively supports the new dog by guiding them through interactions and providing positive reinforcement, while also documenting the new dog’s observed behavior and body language throughout the process.
