Now that you have a profile created- it’s time to schedule a temperament evaluation! This is a chance for your dog to start acclimating to the sights, smells, and sounds of our state-of-the art facility and all of the human and non-human residents. 

The evaluation process is designed to make sure your dog is a good fit with the rest of the pack, and it also gives you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about our services. To schedule the evaluation by call or text us at 406-541-4453. Alternatively, you may email us at 

Some things you should know first:

⦁ Evaluations are given by appointment on Sundays through Thursdays

⦁ Slots are available at 11am and 11:30am (this is subject to change)

⦁ This is not a normal “daycare” day. Think of it as a quick “meet and greet!” You will drop off your dog for a short period of time and pick them up an hour later, shorter or longer, depending on each dog(s). Then, one of our trained staff will report to you on how your dog did.

⦁ We must have updated records of Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella at (or before) the time of your dog’s evaluation, otherwise we are unable to allow your dog on the grounds, for the safety of our staff and the rest of our campers. You can upload a file of your dog’s records directly into your profile.

⦁ It is highly encouraged for you to have your dog spend a day or two at daycare before a longer boarding stay (4+ Nights) so they get used to the routine and know that you will come back for them.

⦁ If you are interested in our hiking services- we require that your dog spends at least two days in our lower play yards, so they establish the building as “Home Base.” Dogs that are showing signs of anxiety may need more time to warm up. 


Lastly, if your dog(s) has(have) passed the temperament evaluation, you are now welcome to drop your dog(s) off any time for daycare, no need to call and schedule. If you are interested in boarding your dog(s) please do call ahead to schedule as we are often quite busy. 

We look forward to getting to know you and your pup(s)!
