Getting Started

Getting Started

The first step is to set up a free temperament screening for you and your dog to come and meet us. To start this process, email your dogs vaccination records (Rabies, CIV, Bordatella and DHPP) and we’ll send you a code to access our customer portal. There you will book on our calendar and fill out our questionnaire about your dog HERE.

During this meeting we will:

  • get to know your dog and understand his/her needs
  • discuss what you are looking for
  • give you a tour of our facility
  • answer any questions you may have
  • introduce your dog to a few others

After our meeting, if you decide to move forward, we can start services at any time; your dog may even stay immediately afterwards. If you have questions before booking, give us a call at 650-592-3997 or send an email.

Temperament Screening Details

  • Plan for approximately 30 minutes
