VACCINATION RULES

Relevant to overnight boarding and day boarding

- ANNUAL BOOSTER:

  • Given once a year, must be up to date

  • Often called Lepto 2 or Lepto 4

  • No wait time required

  • Example: If your dog has had their booster on Thursday, they can come to us the same day

- DHP:

  • Given once every 3 years, must be up to date

  • Often called DHP or DHPPI

  • No wait time required

  • Example: If your dog has had their booster on Thursday, they can come to us the same day

- CANINE COUGH (KENNEL COUGH):

  • Optional, they do not have to have this to come to us

  • If you do choose to give it to your dog, you must do it AT LEAST 2 weeks before they come here. If it is done any sooner, they cannot stay as it is a live contagious vaccine

  • Example: If your dog has the vaccine on the 10th of the month, they wouldn't be able to come until after the 24th of the month

- PRIMARY VACCINATIONS:

  • These are your dog's first ever vaccines, often given to puppies or dogs whose annual vaccinations expired and are now having to start again

  • They are given in 2 parts, after the first part is given, your vet will tell you to return in 2/4 weeks for the second part. 

  • Your dog can stay with us 2 weeks AFTER the 2nd part of the primary vaccine is given.

  • Example: You take your dog for the second part of the primary vaccine on the 1st of the month, your dog can stay with us after the 14th of the month.
