Valley Inn for Pets Temperament Testing, Playgroups and Good Buddy Certification
We all know that many dogs love nothing more than to play and be with other dogs whenever possible. WIth our new Valley Inn for Pets Good Buddy certification program your dog can have more fun and exercise while on vacation socializing with other guests and save you money at the same time!
Here's how it works:
All of our guests will be evaluated by our trained kennel staff for their sociability with other dogs in an outdoor playgroup setting. Dogs that are happy to be with other dogs under a variety of controlled circumstances will be certified as Play Group Ready. Any behavioral tendencies will be noted so that the safest and most enjoyable play groups can be arranged during your pets stay. All Play Group Ready dogs at Inn for Pets can participate in 2 small play groups per day at no additional charge.
Dogs that exhibit questionable or aggressive behavior during this initial evaluation may be ineligible for participating in group activities and will be entertained during their play times instead by our human counselors.
Those dogs that prove the most well socialized during this initial evaluation will undergo additional temperament tests during their stay for certification as a Good Buddy.
Once certified as a Good Buddy, your dog will be eligible for shared lodging in the Destination and Window Suites with other Good Buddy certified dogs at a reduced cost off $5 off the daily rate.
For example Destination Suite off peak single occupancy rate = $35/day
Destination Suite Good Buddy shared occupancy = $30/day/pet
Things to be aware of!
Good Buddy roommates will be assigned only with your explicit permission ahead of time and are subject to availability of suitably compatible and sized roommates.
Even though we take every precaution to prevent “squabbles” between guests during group playtimes and shared lodging, both of these activities include the risk of fighting and injury. Even dogs from the same family may occasionally fight when kept together in a kennel setting. While most times the results of these flare-ups are inconsequential, we are not responsible for any injuries sustained during group play or shared lodging.
If you are not comfortable with the idea of your dog playing with other dogs, we will be happy to keep them safely separated from other guests and entertained by our human counselors only. Please let us know if this is the case!!
