Requirements Your Dog Will Need
There are specific vaccines that every dog needs to have current in order to board, play for daycare and for me to provide any dog wash service.
This is to ensure that all are happy and healthy. You're veterinarian is the one who can administer these and we have no idea how much they will cost you. A rabies tag is not enough for proof, we need documentation from a veterinarian. It is the responsibility of dog owners to keep these up to date throughout the year. When you schedule a reservation, I will let you know if something is expired.
ALL ADULT DOGS MUST HAVE:
Bordetella aka Kennel Cough
The ONLY exception is puppies under the age of 16wks*
ALL PUPPIES MUST WAIT 10 DAYS AFTER VACCINES BEFORE COMING HERE
*8-11 weeks old should have 1 - 2 rounds of distemper/parvo & 1st bordetella
*12-15 weeks old should have 2 - 3 round of distemper/parvo & 2nd bordetella
*16 weeks old should have 3rd round of distemper/parvo & rabies
I highly suggest that your dog also be current on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. We live in a region of the country that has high numbers of these parasites and your dog's health is important to me!
Meet & Wag
Another requirement is a "Meet & Wag" with you and your dog (basically a temperament test). This has to be done before any reservations can be made. The main reason for this is to ensure that Karissa feels comfortable with your dog. It also gives owners the chance to check the place out and make sure there are no questions about your dogs stay.
VACCINES MUST BE DONE BEFORE THIS IS SCHEDULED!!
We understand that there are situations that make this impossible to do. In those cases, please note that your dog will be monitored for any behavior issues before introducing to the pack. Also, there will be NO GUARANTEE your dog will be able to stay if there are any signs of aggression towards Karissa.
