Temperament Assessment

Not all dogs are comfortable in a largely social environment. To ensure that all dogs play together safely, DoGone Fun! requires an initial visit with you and your dog. Our staff spends time getting to know your dog and talking to you about your dog's experiences and history. He/she is then gradually introduced to the play group while we carefully observe his/her reactions. We require your dog to spend a half day (3 to 6 hours) with us so we can properly assess your dog. Temperament assessments are $25 and can be scheduled Monday through Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Reservations are a good idea, but we will attempt to serve any walk-ins with all requirements met, Monday through Saturday.

**Re-Assessments are required after a year of no DGF services.**.

Spayed or Neutered

For the safety of all of our dogs, every dog over the age of six months must be either spayed or neutered.


All dogs must have evidence of current: Distemper, Rabies and Bordatella (Kennel Cough) vaccinations.

Fecal Exam

All dogs must have a current fecal exam that is negative for parasites.
