Making Sure Your Dog Has All the Necessary Vaccinations for Boarding

Our staff is dedicated toward the health and well-being of your pet, and you can rest assured that, when they are under our care, we do everything in our power to make them feel at home. Because of our dedication toward your pet’s safety, we do require your dog to have all their necessary vaccinations before boarding.
To help speed up the approval process, we like to provide our clients all the information they need to know. When you come to enroll your pet, we will require written proof that the animal is up-to-date on the following vaccinations, not just for the safety of other animals in the facility, but also for the security of your pet.
Required Dog Vaccinations for Boarding
  • Bordetella: Administed every 12 months (keep in mind many veterinarians only administer by request)
  • DAPP: One- or three-year vaccine required
  • Rabies: One- or three-year vaccine required
Additional Requirements for Boarding
Just as your dog is an important part of your life, the other pets who have been entrusted under our care hold a special meaning in the lives of other clients. As a result, we ask that you ensure your pet is free of any fleas and ticks before they will be accepted into our facility.

When you tour our facility, there are a few things you should keep in mind to know you will be completely satisfied with where you pet will be spending a large portion of their time.

Specific Behavioral Problems

If your pooch has a specific behavioral issues, we encourage you to share that with us. We will inform you of the protocol we have of correcting the issues, and among the issues we can deal with include:

  • Nuisance barking
  • Play biting
  • Chewing
  • Getting on furniture
  • General housebreaking

Older Dogs

If you are enrolling an older dog, they likely have become accustomed to a certain routine, and we strive to ensure we are able to accommodate. For example, if they prefer to nap in a particular environment at a certain time of day, we can help you seek out that type of location within our facility.
