TEMPERAMENT

Are dogs given a temperament test? No, but all dogs must have gone through the evaluation process before being allowed to attend day care or board.

WHAT VACCINATIONS ARE REQUIRED?

We require Rabies, Bordetella and Distemper vaccinations be current. Bordetella must have been given 48 hours prior to daycare or boarding.

WHY DO YOU REQUIRE THAT MY DOG BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED?

The main reason is that intact dogs are at greater risk of injury from other dogs. In a social environment, intact males are often viewed as threats by other dominant dogs. Intact females, whether in heat or not, may be picked on by other female dogs and male dogs will view her as an intact female and treat her as such.

CAN ANY DOG COME IN FOR DOGGIE DAY CARE OR OVERNIGHT BOARDING?

No. Every dog must first complete an evaluation process so we can see how they interact with other dogs. They must be over four months old, must be spayed or neutered if they are over 6 months old, and must be current on their Rabies, Bordetella (for canine cough), and Distemper vaccinations. They must be in good health, flea/tick free, friendly to all dogs, and generally love to play.

HOW OLD DO THE DOGS HAVE TO BE?

We require that dogs be at least four months old. This is for the safety of your puppy and for the safety of other dogs. Final vaccinations, including the first rabies vaccination, typically aren’t given until four months of age.
