Your pet should have the following vaccinations:

Important Notice for Vaccines:

All of these are non-negotiable unless we are provided with a veterinary note as to why they will not vaccinate your dog against one or more of those listed and their assessment of the dog’s overall health. Make sure that regular booster vaccines are given 3-5 days prior to the boarding date needed. If it is the first time your dog is receiving a specific vaccine, we require 7 days time period between receiving the vaccine and the boarding date.
