All dogs must be no less than 16 weeks of age and have all 3 rounds of shots. Dogs 6 months and older must be spayed or neutered. All dogs must be in overall good health and free of fleas, ticks, and all diseases.

All dogs must be up-to-date on all required vaccinations for the full length of their stay. We reserve the right to refuse reservations due to vaccinations and/or records not being up-to-date. Dogs may not attend daycare or boarding on the day they receive vaccinations of any kind or for 24 hours following vaccinations. We're sorry, no exceptions can be made since we must ensure the safety and health of all dogs in our care.
