Your dog's first day with Beechnut is known as their evaluation or trial day. During this day your dog will attend a full day of daycare with Beechnut. We will be easing your pet in and helping them become acclimated with the facility and fellow furry friends in a stress free enviroment. Spending the time to evaluate your pet will give us deeper insight on your pets personality, personal needs, and play style. The trial day also gives us the opportunity to assess if our program will be a good fit for your pet. This is beneficial to your pet as well as our facility and staff by giving both parties a slow and proper introduction to a new and fun relationship. - Trial Day is performed during a full day of daycare by appointment only. Appointments are available Monday through Thursday each week.

- The cost of a trial day is $30 per dog (the cost of a normal day of daycare).

- Drop-off is between 7AM - 10AM; Pick-up is between 2PM - 6PM.
