Application: All required forms must be completed andapproved prior to your dog’s first visit.All vaccination records must be sent to us directly from the vet. We will not accept records that do not come directly from the vet. We will be happy to call your vet and request those records.
Evaluation: All dogs are required to be evaluated prior to any visit. Any dog that has not been evaluated and approved for socialization may not be permitted to stay.
There is a one day evaluation REQUIRED prior to an overnight stay. Your dog must be dropped off early in the morning and picked up during our evening hours of operation.
Vaccinations: All guests must be up to date on the following required vaccinations:
DHLPP (Distemper, Parvo), Rabies, Bordetella*
*Bordetella (required every 6 months) – Please note: There is NO such thing as a 6 month bordetella vaccine. We require the ANNUAL vaccine for bordetella (kennel cough) every six months. Please keep in mind that the "due date" on veterinary documentation is often the date after one year, not 6 months. For that reason it may not appear to be "due" on your "reminders" form from your vet. For safety information regarding the bordetella every six months, please contact your vet.
Must be on an approved flea and parasite (including heartworm) program per vet recommendations. Flea preventatives include Comfortis, Trifexis, Frontline Plus, Vectra or Advantix. Heartworm preventatives include Interceptor, Heartguard, Trifexis or Sentinel.
Please note - Dogs who present with signs of fleas will be treated with Capstar and charged $50 per dog. We also reserve the right to refuse to take your dog if he/she presents with fleas. Please keep in mind that we do not knowingly accept dogs who are not on a flea preventative medication.
Must have had a negative fecal (for internal parasites) within the previous 12 months.
Please note – if there is a medical reason why your dog may not be taking flea or heartworm preventative medication, we will require an explanation from your vet and certification from your vet that your dog is flea and/or heartworm free.
