Our Improvement On  "The Temperament Test" -  Due to    high reservation demand, Play Style Assessments are suspended until further notice with the following exceptions:  1) Puppy Development grads, 2) existing customers that have added a new fur baby to their family, and 3) new customers interested in our Adult Dog Development or Training programs.  For those situations, please contact us at 346-998-6950, option 2 to make arrangements.   All others,   please check back in the Fall of  2022!

Your dog's "temperament" is only one component to our understanding your dog and developing the best play day program we can.

Our Play Style Assessment consists of:

  • a comprehensive in-person evaluation of personality, what kind of play, training and type and level of activity will meet your dog's daily enrichment needs, and

  • a close observation of your dog's response to the identified play day program he/she will enjoy for the rest of the day.

We never turn away dogs based on breed, but rather rely on our professionally-conducted, comprehensive play style assessment to inform us about their temperament, reactivity, behavior, level of socialization and play styles. At our discretion, dogs that are not candidates for large group play, but that are safely socialized with people, and not aggressively reactive to other dogs may enjoy play days with us and receive one-on-one playtime with our Ranch Hands; however, we will restrict dog-to-dog interactions.

Play Day guests must be at least six months old, on tick and flea prevention, and up to date on Rabies, DHPP and Bordetella.  Dogs over six months old must be spayed/neutered.


Should your dog need a Bordetella vaccination, we can do that here for $25 which we will charge to your account.


Are your pet’s shots up to date? You can update their records by emailing us a copy at or by having your vet email them to us prior to check in.


Upon arrival and throughout the day, Ranch Hands will check your pet for fleas and ticks. If any are found, we will treat your pet immediately and notify you. Treatment costs $20 and will be charged to your account.   


To accommodate your busy schedule, you can choose from these drop off/pick up times:

Monday - Friday 6 to 7:30 a.m. or 12 to 2 p.m. or 4 to 7 p.m.  Saturday - Sunday (and holidays) late drop off/pick up time is 5 to 6 p.m. Check out is 2 p.m. Need to stay later than that? No worries, just reserve a half day play day.


Our goal is to keep a safe, clean, and happy environment for all our guests!
