The Pawz Café determines aggression in dogs based on the following qualities: If a dog is frightened of people or other dogs and becomes defensive, if the dog shows teeth or growls on more than one occasion, if the dog has a history of aggressive behavior, or if the dog injuries, attacks, or bites/attempts to bite a person or another dog. If a dog meets one or more of these qualities, they will be considered aggressive. If a client’s dog is determined to be aggressive, they will not be able to sign up for any group activity, including daycare and boarding. The Pawz Café advises that all aggressive dogs take a minimum of a 6-8-week bootcamp course to work on aggression training. Aggressive dog fee will be added on to any training or evaluation invoice.
AGGRESSION FEE: $100
