Yes, All dogs must have a veterinarian's certificate that immunizations are current: (Rabies, DHLPP, Parvo, Canine Cough (Bordetella). If your dog needs a immunization that is new or needs updating; it must be administered 14 days or more prior to arrival if they have never had the immunization. Please do your best to e-mail, mail or text these records prior to arrival. You can bring them the day of arrival but if we do not have the records they are not able to stay. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS PLEASE PLAN AHEAD! ALSO: STARTING 2024 WE WILL ALSO REQUIRE Canine Influenza immunization
We have been at max capacity at the dog lodge for several months. We are so thankful for all of our customers for making that happen. We want to continue to be YOUR #1 option when leaving your beloved fur baby. One step that we have taken is that we invested in the revolutionary Bi-Ox Reactor system that actually decontaminates the air and that has an all-natural enzyme microbe solution that acts like an air scrubber and drastically reduces the spread of airborne illness.
With that, we are going to take another step that should add one more layer of protection to your dogs. Before bringing your pup here, we would like a two-week time window after your dog has visited the following:
Examples: vet offices, dog shows, dog classes, other dog boarding and daycare facilities, groomers (yes mobile too) & dog parks. Please let us know if your dog has been to any of these mentioned in the two-week window before coming here. Thanks so much
