Dog Service Requirements

Temperament Evaluation

Has your pooch ever come to play with us before? If not, we’d like to meet your best friend to make sure that she will be friendly and happy with the rest of the pack. All dogs must complete a one time temperament evaluation prior to, or on their first visit. Temperament evaluations are scheduled by appointment. They usually take less than 30 minutes and include a tour of our Facility For service outside office hours, please contact us.

Spay Neuter

All dogs over 7 months should be spayed/neutered


To begin the evaluation you will need to provide proof that your dog has current vaccinations against rabies, DHPP, canine influenza and bordetella. Once you are ready to set up the time for the evaluation, it is best to give us a call at 513-480-3647(DOGS).

Please note that the bordetella vaccination is not automatically given by most veterinarians unless requested, so you will want to double check your paperwork prior to coming for the evaluation. Because we are introducing your dog to our pack, all vaccinations must be present and current before beginning the evaluation.

Food (Boarding Only)

Customers should provide adequate food to last their dog’s entire stay. American Bark Park offers food for purchase but recommends you keep their diet the same for their stay. If your dog fails to eat, multiple attempts will be made on a daily basis. We recommend bringing extra in case your stay is extended or our measurements are slightly different. Extra/left over food will be returned. American Bark Park asks that you not bring bowls from home. Our dishes are washed daily and are highly durable. Your dishes may be damaged or lost in our daily cleaning regimen.
