Dogs By Andy Kennels and Training Center meets all USDA requirements for boarding facilities, and one of the ways we do this is by requiring all pets staying with us to have up-to-date vaccination records on file. The required vaccinations for dogs include Rabies, Distemper/Lepto/Parvo, and Bordetella. WE CANNOT ACCEPT YOUR PET FOR BOARDING IF WE DO NOT HAVE UP-TO-DATE VACCINATION RECORDS! VACCINATION RECORDS MUST BE PROVIDED PRIOR TO YOUR DOG’S STAY WITH US! Even if your pet has had the vaccinations, if we do not have the records, we cannot accept your pet into our facility. To ensure a hassle-free check-in, it helps to make sure we have the vaccination records well before the date of your check-in.
Vaccinations should be given at least 5-7 days prior to visiting Dogs By Andy Kennels for boarding or daycare. In particular, if you get a Bordetella intranasal vaccination we cannot allow your dog into our facility for at least 24 hours.
Proof of your pet’s vaccination will be kept on file. We prefer vaccination records be delivered in advance of your arrival to help simplify and speed up your check-in.
Please email your pet’s vaccination records to: firstname.lastname@example.org with your dog’s name and “Vaccination Records” in the subject line.
Titres are accepted in lieu of vaccinations.
- DHLPP: Initial puppy shots required, Booster thereafter every three years.
- Rabies: At 16 weeks of age, thereafter as required by law.
- Bordetella: Yearly or 24 hours prior to boarding. (Follow your vets recommendation as per the vaccine used.)
- Parainfluenza: Usually given at 8, 12, and 16 weeks of age as part of the DA2PP schedule.
While vaccinations are very helpful in preventing the spread of infectious disease, they do not provide 100 percent protection. Therefore, at Dogs By Andy Kennels we do our very best to ensure that our facility is as sanitary as possible. We follow industry standard cleaning procedures and have a new facility that uses a state-of-the-art HVAC system to ensure proper ventilation. We also train our staff to be on the lookout for any signs of illness in any of the pets in our care.
